Our 3rd visit, ten tennis players from Bedford.
Plus points - hotel lovely as ever with friendly staff, excellent food, wine and service. The clay tennis courts are super to play on and are maintained very well. Location good, 5 mins walk to lake and 20 mins into Malcesine town. Hotel gardens and pool absolutely beautiful, at least when the sun shines.
Not so plus - weather in May not reliable, we had 30 hours continuous rain. At least there are 2 covered courts. Rooms in blocks 1 and 2 are good but not fantastic (no bath, small shower) but I guess this is why it is 3 star. Costs like much of Italy a bit on the high side. Ferry costs on the lake gettinng a bit steep.
Hotel quieter than previous visits - affects of the recession in Germany?
And we felt the earthquake in Bologna - quite violent even 120 miles away!
