We booked 10 days at the Gardenia based on the excellent ratings on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived until we left the staff could not do enough for us. We were even invited to make a selection for a packed breakfast because we had to leave so early on our last day. We have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this hotel and all their staff.

This is the 8th time we have stayed at the Gardenia. The hotel is clean and comfortable, and the owners and staff are perfect, nothing is too much trouble.

The location is great, a short (20 min) walk from lots of good restaurants in town.

Room Tip: Every room we have stayed in has been fine. The front rooms have a good view and balconies.

The three brothers; Nicola, Riccardo and Gianni, who own and run this wonderful holiday retreat,
work tirelessly to ensure that every visitor is made to feel special. This also applies to all the members of the staff who cannot do enough to make one's stay, memorable. This was our fourth
visit to the hotel and it will not be our last. Wonderful views of both lake and mountains and should you want to travel north to Riva or south to Verona, public buses, stop conveniently close.
No hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: I can recommend Room 201.

Here we go - great staff and always happy. I know they are happy, I've seen many places where the smile is not genuine. THIS IS GENUINE. Spotlessly clean, my wife's the expert so I know I am right. Saw them cleaning the sun loungers and the tables early in the day. The owners were exceptionally accommodating and helpful with everything, even with our very early departure pre breakfast.

OK this is not a big 4 star hotel, but if you want a well run hotel with very neat amenities and close to Bardolino town then what more do you need.

Room Tip: Go direct to the hotel only. No money needed until you finish your stay.

Booked this hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. Set back about a hundred yards from the lakefront, but the front rooms have a wonderful view out over the lake and mountains. Spotlessly clean and well run with friendly staff this is a great hotel run by three brothers. It is, as has been said about a fifteen minute walk into Bardolino but this was not a problem as it was a flat pavement running beside the lake most of the way. The hotel has a smallish pool, but again kept very clean and we saw it being tested regularly for cleanliness and water quality. There is also another pool you can use across the square in the Villa Charme. Breakfast was more than adequate, with a wide choice of fruit, cereal, pastries, cold meats etc and a choice of egg or omelette. We had a car and there was never any problem finding a parking space.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms have a lake view some with a small balcony

Would highly recommend staying at this gorgeous, spotless, amazing, quiet hotel. Just set back off the main road with plenty of free parking. Continental breakfast was well presented with the most choices I have ever seen. Location was great, we thoroughly enjoyed the 15 min pretty walk around the lake to the centre of Bardolino every evening.
All the staff were friendly, Excellent recommendations and information was given. They saved us loads of time and money recommending the cheapest way to visit Venice, giving us info and times on a particular train that costs 10 Euros per person each way, much cheaper than driving with tolls and parking.
We took advantage of hiring bikes from the hotel to cycle on the lakes wide paths to other towns.
Thank you for our perfect stay

Room Tip: High floor at front of hotel for views of the lake.

Even after five years nothing has changed. The brothers are still as charming, the staff just as friendly and helpful, the hotel (inside and outside) remains in pristine condition - overall rating - a very BIG 10. Don't be disappointed - book early.

Room Tip: 401 is the best
