Just back from a great holiday at this hotel. The fabulous staff really do make the difference and they all try to speak English - putting us to shame. The hotel is spotless and nothing is too much trouble - whether it is extra towels, a travel plug ( we brought the wrong one!) or special dietry requirements the staff will do everything they can to help out.
This is a quiet hotel set away from Sirmione itself although this is no bad thing. You are very close to the public bus stop on the main road and it is a pleasant 30 minute walk into Sirmione. Be warned there was only one taxi working on a Saturday night so be prepared to walk back. The free shuttle bus is very handy but be early especially if you need to catch a particular ferry from Sirmione, the driver willl make more than one journey but it will take about 20 minutes for him to come back. Excellent base to explore other parts of the lake I only wish we had driven, the hotel does have an underground car park.
Columbare is just round the corner with a good choice of restaurants, bars, shops, a supermarket and a tobacco shop for bus tickets. There is also very easy access to the lake.
The rooms are quite small and do suffer from a shortage of drawers, although there are plenty of hangers in the wardrobe and there is very little space for toiletries in the bathroom. You can chose your pillow preference and how often you would like the bedding and towels changed. We were not charged for the use of the safe.
The restaurant is pleasant and there is adequate choice each day, just ask if you need any thing different or extra. You choose your evening meal at breakfast and if you decline are promptly offered a picnic lunch instead. Be warned the picnic lunch is massive and one between two would be more than sufficient.The evening waiter service with free wine and water really do make a difference. Remember they are catering for all different nationalities of all age groups.We did go out to eat every other night to enjoy a more fine dining experience and to make more of each evening, but I stress there was not anything wrong with the food on offer. The waiting staff are excellent and very friendly in Italian, German and English- they work extremely long hours yet always have a smile.
If you are looking for a small, clean, friendly hotel away from the hustle and bustle of Sirmione I would recommend this hotel.
