We are 20-something Veuve Clicquot and other wonderful champagne loving and fine dining (though far from snobby) people who honeymooned in the Hotel Savoy Palace but please don't think us biased when we both state it is a wonderful hotel. It harks back to the old school days when Winston Churchill frequented it, and the decor is inkeeping with this period, as too the service. So what if it's not a modernsque affair but if you have an appreciation for the old school and you want good service and a fabulous atmosphere then this hotel still encompasses all the grandeur from the period whence it has been lovingly restored. The staff are all extremely attentive and the food is absolutely wonderful (though, admittedly, it takes a couple of nights to get acquanited with the 5 course meals but this is not a complaint!) you can savour the piano bar and terrace above, and ,yes, the apperitifs may come at a price but they are accompanied by fabulous canapes and a wonderful atmosphere that cannot be priced. Gardone Riveara is, in our opinion and ,having visited several of the villages and towns around the lake, a jewel in Lake Garda's crown and we believe Savoy Hotel Palace is the jewel of the hotel's on offer. We can't quite put it into words but if you wan't Italy around the lake then go to Gardone and savour the town that has approx 4000 inhabitants and a wonderful local atmposphere and just take day trips to the more touristy resorts around the Lake. A family run hotel with a welcoming family atmosphere, what else can we say? Sample the local sparkling wine (can't be called champagne, as it isn't of the French region's provenance, but tastes at least as good) visit Sirmione's castello di catullo (amazing roman villa, the largest in Northern Italy! not so long ago they believed the wonderful ruins to be cave's!) take a day trip to Venice (must do!) or Verona (where Romeo's Juliet's balcony is said to lie) and visit Malcesine, this place is wonderful with a great castle and chuches (that would surely be managed by the National Trust if they were in the UK) And our closing line? We met a wonderful couple (very distinguished) whilst on Honeymoon, whom were staying at the Savoy Palace Hotel and whose Son was a Producer Director for the BBC, and they were staying at the Savoy Palace ,having completed a tour of Italy's Lakes the previous year, and they loved Lake Garda - well if it's good enough for them and their Producer Director son then it's good enough for anyone!
