We just spent a week in Bardolino and booked our holiday last minute. We didn't upgrade our room as it appeared to be too expensive to bother, when we planned to be out and about most of the time. Maybe this accounts for the lack of glamour, although it was an overall feeling. The hotel is tucked back from the lake a bit, so doesn't have a waterfront restaurant. It does have a central garden that some of the rooms face out on, which is probably nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful - we had to get some clothing ironed, sort out our wireless and a few other queries and they were always incredibly patient and quick to help us solve our issues. Even the staff in the restaurants (though we only had breakfast there) were lovely. The breakfast buffet was impressive with a huge selection of hot & cold food plus cereals, coffee, juices, cakes - tricky to not over eat if you're that way inclined! It's very close to Bardolino Town - maybe a 5 min walk to the promenade with all of it's lakeside cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. Oh and we had a back massage on our last day as had a late flight which was amazing and the therapist was also charming. This is my second time to Lake Garda and I think Bardolino is the best place on the lake to stay. You can get everywhere from there by boat or car (in hotter seasons I recommend an air conditioned car for a break from the heat, plus it's quicker to get to places like Riva that way) from Bardolino, but it also has the advantage of not being too quiet or too over developed. It's the perfect balance of relaxation with plenty of shopping and eating to be had. You won't get bored. There's a supermarket about 5 mins walk from Parc Hotel Gritti for supplies. There also IS a lakeside cafe just as you walk out onto the road along the lake, though I don't think it's connected with the hotel in any way. We drove to Venice & Riva, walked to Garda (do this early as it can be HOT) and took a boat to Sirmione. There's a decent market in Bardolino on Thursday as well. Look forward to visiting Lake Garda again - it's a great place to get away from it all. Maybe we'll take the kids next time, if they're lucky.
