“Fantastic holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Wow was my first word when I finally reached our destination at lake Garda, Malcesine, beautiful place, very friendly people, fantastic food and ice creams, walked everyday, had a very comfortable stay at the Benacus Hotel, family fun hotel, Roberto was a great host, thanks for the warm brandies, hotel is a 3 star but with a 5 star service, bus stopped just outside hotel to Malcesine 5 minutes, lake just 5 minutes from hotel (walking) beautiful beautiful Italy, we will be back.

Room Tip: There are two options, you can get a balcony looking out to the lake, or a balcony at back of hotel...

We arrived at Hotel Benacus quite late in the evening and was greeted by Roberto with a very warm welcome. The hotel was lovely, rooms were bright and very clean. We had a view of the mountains from our balcony, well worth the extra few euros. The breakfast room was very well run with a great choice. The bar also did snacks and afternoon teas and coffees and the gardens were very pleasant to enjoy the sunshine. The tourist hopper bus takes you into town for 1 euro and stops right next to the hotel and runs hourly. If you are feeling more energetic, you can walk down to the lakeside (3 minutes down a slight incline) and walk along the lake into the town. You can get the boats across the lake to see Limone and Torbole and also Riva Del Garda which are all worth a visit. We hired a car and drove to Venice (2.5 hours away) which was well worth the travelling and even went so far as Innsbruck in Austria! Verona is well worth a visit too. Roberto will give you suggestions as to where to eat out, places to go etc. We had a lovely relaxing holiday and thank Roberto and family and Arturo the dog for a lovely time. We hope to return in the future.

Together with our friends we had a wonderful holiday at Hotel Benacus. The welcome from Roberto and the staff couldn't have been better, they made us feel at home the moment we arrived. Roberto and Roberta on reception were most helpful and the staff in the breakfast room and Rosa in the the bar/cafe were always happy to please. Our comfortable rooms were on the top floor with lovely views of the lake and surrounding area. There is a pleasant 20 minute walk from the hotel down a fairly steep hill and along the lakeside into Malcesine. The return journey was a bit of a challenge but there is, however, a convenient tourist bus which would bring you back from Malcesine right to the hotel for just 1 euro - bargain. Hope to come back again.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the top floor overlooking the lake. you will not be disappointed.

My wife and two sons enjoyed a fantastic week in the Hotel Benacus and received wonderful hospitality and great service from Roberto, his father and hotel staff - nothing was too much bother, The hotel is immaculate with lovely well maintained gardens and pool area with enough parasols and trees to shade everyone. Our rooms were on the top floor with wonderful views from the balcony of the lake and the mountains. The breakfast was taken on the first floor balcony with a wide selection of foods to suit everyone. The beautiful traffic free walk from the hotel to Malcesine along the lake edge made the perfect start to the evening. If you enjoy your cycling this is the place to be, with routes along the lake or for the more adventurous the mountains - either way Robert has well maintained bikes available for hire. Thank you Roberto and all your staff - a wonderful week!

Room Tip: Any room to the front will offer great views of the lake and mountains beyond!

We have just returned from a week staying at the Hotel Benacus, Malcesine. We were late arriving (driving from our home in Norfolk) but Roberto met us with the most warming welcome we have ever had, along with a well needed beverage ;-)
This hotel is superbly appointed and our room was just what we needed. Top floor balcony view towards the lake was fantastic with the mountains as the backdrop.
The staff were all very pleasant and helpfull and a total credit to Hotel Benacus.
The family are celebrating 50 years in this hotel this year and it is no wonder they are still hoteliers. The decor is well maintained and the grounds were ideal for relaxing in the evening for a quiet drink.
Thank you Roberto and all your staff.
We will be back.

Room Tip: Front view over the lake with balcony (top floor). Some road noise but generally quiet.

Just had a week in the Benacus hotel and received wonderful hospitality and great service. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Even though the weather wasn't at its best for that week, we still enjoyed our stay helped by the friendliness and kindness of the staff at the hotel. Great!!!
