I can only agree with other reviewers that this is an outstanding hotel.
Very friendly welcome with a glass of Prosecco and a detailed explanation of what the area has to offer and some restaurant suggestions.
Every member of staff was invariably very cheerful and friendly and couldn't do enough to help. They all spoke excellent English and German, and encouraged my stumbling attempts at speaking Italian. Nice room with balcony, all the facilities and a view of the lake (although the bathroom was just a bit small), and it was quiet enough for a good nights sleep.
Excellent location close to the lake and a pleasant 20 minute walk to Bardolino town or a slightly shorter one to Cisano. There are loads of places to eat in Bardolino, although the menus are all pretty similar, We stayed for a week and found plenty of things to do including travelling round the lake by ferry, walking in the hills behind Bardolino or along the lakeside. The area is good for cycling and we hired bicycles from the hotel one day - again very easily organised and enthusiastically providedby the staff. We stayed in late September and it was still warm enough to lie out by the pool and even swimming for the brave.
We travelled via Verona airport and the hotel was easy to reach, with a bus from the airport to Verona, then a bus to Bardolino with a stop very close to the Gardenia. We went back on a hotel shuttle that the hotel organised for us (enthusiastically of course!). We thought this was a great hotel, made extra special by the staff and would highly recommend it.
