Have just returned from a week in the Piccolo Hotel in Garda. This was our fourth visit to Garda but first to the Piccolo. It is a small (10 rooms) family run hotel right on the lakeside in a really beautiful location. The weather was unusually hot (38 degrees at 6pm) and so the lack of air con was more of a problem than it might have been - the rooms only have ceiling fans which struggled to cope in the extreme heat but would probably be adequate in normal circumstances. Eating outside on the lakeside was lovely and much nicer than the more formal dining arrangements of some of the other hotels. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms comfortable. The only fault was that our room was at the back and overlooked a very, small bar which seemed to be the only one in Garda that remained open until about 4am and as a result it was quite noisy. The breakfasts were buffet style, continental and lovely with a wide choice of cold meats, cheeses, cereal, fruit, breads, frittata, boiled eggs, yoghourts and conserves. Dinner was a set 3 course menu with a choice of 3 starters, 2 mains and 3 desserts. We enjoyed the week very much and I would go back tomorrow given the chance. (One word of warning - make sure you have your front door key if you are going to be back after about 11.15pm as we found ourselves locked out and facing a night on a park bench until sheer luck saw some of our fellow guests returning late from a trip to Venice and they let us in!!)
