“Again & again & again - fantastico”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We have visited The Continental for the 3rd time in as many years, we took friends with us who had never visited Italy before and they have fallen in love with the place just as we did when we 1st visited. The welcome was warm as always and all the staff had remembered us from previous years, the hotel and the rooms are spotlessly clean and the food was delicious with large portions of everything (I cannot understand the previous reviewer who stated the food was bland). This hotel is perfectly located in Garda with only a couple of minutes stroll and you are on the lake, I would say there was only 1 draw back this year which was the building work close by but this is not the fault of the hotel, I can't wait to return.
PS try their newly aquired restaurant by the lake El Refol the food is delicious.

This was my third stay at the lovely hotel in Garda town. Always a warm and friendly welcome. The food, service and cleanliness were excellent. It is situated in a peaceful location but only minutes from the lakeside, ferry point and bus station. It is a joy to stay here and I would certainly return and recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but it is best to have a pool view.

This was our second stay at The Hotel Continental. This friendly and family run hotel is just minutes from the lakeside and a short walk from the bus and ferry station. It is a spotlessly clean hotel, dated in its appearance which only adds to its charm. The staff and management are both helpful and friendly. We were lucky enough to have a pool view from our room, the pool was a welcome relief in the Italian sunshine and well maintained. There were plenty of sun loungers WITH comfy cushions and umbrellas too. Our room was of a decent size with air conditioning but no tea and coffee making facilities!! The shower although quite small was more than adequate for our requirements. If we are ever lucky enough to visit Garda again we would not hesitate to stop at the Hotel Continental.

Room Tip: Higher floors to the front have the best views

This hotel offers a great location, excellent family friendly facilities and a delightful choice of high quality food. The owners eat the same food and in the same restaurant as guests. The service provided by all the waiters is very friendly and great attention to detail. The rooms are air conditioned and very comfortable; it is worth paying for a pool view. The pool is of a larger than average size and a great asset. There are plenty of sun-beds with cushions, even when the hotel is full. I would highly recommend this to all travellers. The guests vary in age leading to a very happy and relaxed vibe. A fantastic holiday.

Room Tip: Choice a pool view room. The ground floor rooms open onto the pool area. The higher rooms have a bal...

Just returned from a 2 week holiday at Hotel Continental. This family run hotel has everything you could want and more for a 3* hotel. Perfect location, excellent helpful staff and a beautiful pool area. Unlike the previous review, we thought the food was of a very high standard with a reasonable choice of buffet breakfast and always 3 options, including vegetarian, for the lunch & evening meal (you can choose to have either as part of the half board package).
Just a 3 minute stroll to the old town or lake front but in a very quiet spot. I would recommend this hotel to couples of all ages but maybe not for families with young children.

The hotel is lovely and clean with a nice pool. good location for sight seeing. The breakfast was ok but dinner is very poor, it was tasteless and undercooked. we prefered to eat out at the lake front. Would be nice if the hotel offered bed and breakfast instead of half board.

My wife and I had always promised ourselves a return to Lake Garda and we used her 60th birthday celebration as a good reason to do so.

This time we chose the Continental Hotel as our base and what an excellent choice it was. It is an older hotel but we felt it had a great retro feel about it. It is kept spotlessly clean has a lovely pool/ garden area with plenty of shade.
As it was a special occasion we paid extra for a pool view room which was well worth it.

It is in a great position at the ferry port end of the town but set back a couple of streets in a quiet location just a short stroll to the old town and lakeside.

Our food was excellent with a good selection at breakfast and a choice of three options for starter and main course, chosen when you have your breakfast by the way, for our evening meal. A big thankyou to Maria who laid on a lovely birthday cake for my wife.

The restaurant staff were very helpful and friendly with a special mention for Francesco, a charming young man, for whom nothing was too much trouble.

Associated with the hotel is the lakeside restaurant called El Refol which gives a 15% discount to Continental residents. We enjoyed a few lunches there which also included a complimentary glass of presecco.

All in all a great choice for our special occasion. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would happily stay there again on our next visit to Garda.
