We have just spent 7 days at the Hotel Giardinetto in Garda. Location in Garda itself was excellent, right on the lake front. Check in was a little underwhelming and at first it didn't seem overly friendly, but this was more to do with the relaxed attitude of the staff than anything else. The room was spotless and cleaned every day to a high standard. The en suite was very good with a top shower and a bath also. The bedroom was basic and lacked plug sockets with only one taking the standard two pin European plugs, the others were for three pins, which we didn't have an adaptor for. We had no view at all being on the side of the building, so we overlooked the next door hotel's roof. They do have lake front rooms, so it would be worth asking for one if you book directly with them as some had balconies, which would have been lovely. Air con was excellent though.
Being in such a prime location it was quite noisy in the mornings on several days and ear plugs came in handy. Also the shutters failed to keep out the light, so I ended up improvising with beach towels over the windows!
We stayed b&b and the breakfast was fine. A selection of the usual meats and cheeses, but lots of fresh fruit, cereal, yogurts etc. something to suit everyone.
The hotel is also a restaurant with a huge range of food, especially fish and seafood. Out first meal there of spaghetti with seafood was excellent and we had excellent service, but the second night (very busy night with lots of covers) was less inspiring. We learned from our rep. that as guests we were entitled to 10% discount, but on our first night we didn't know this so we didn't get it. We asked for it in the second night, but when the bill came they hadn't done it so we had to ask again. I'd advise eating earlier when it less busy to get the best service. We didn't eat there again.
All in all it was a pleasant stay and some of the staff (especially the breakfast crew) were really lovely and friendly.
