My partner and I stayed here from the 9th July - 16th July and were well and truly pleased with our stay. I came to Lake Garda and stayed in this hotel 4 years ago and returned this year with my boyfriend and I found the hotel to be even better than the last time.
When we arrived i was highly dissapointed in our room as we booked 7 months in advance and requested a high room with a view and ended up getting a room on bottom floor at the back with nothing but a view of another hotel! We phoned reception and the lady was rather rude saying no rooms are available and we wont be moved. This wasn't a good start. However,the food was spot on, lots of choice and the free wine and water at dinner time really makes a nice difference.
The hotel is clean, staff are well mannered and its of a good size, not to big not too small. The pool area is small but there's always sun loungers available and the pool is never full of people. The hotel is positioned on the main road which we loved because you have easy access to the local ice cream shops and supermarket which is about a five minute walk to the right of the hotel. I would definitely recommend floras ice cream parlor for the sundaes but for an amazing snickers and nutella ice cream be sure to head to the other ice cream place with is just over the road and to the left of the hotel. Coffee, hot chocolate, cakes and melon are available from 4pm-5pm in the lobby which is lovely, this was out favorite part!! The free wifi is also a bonus if you are someone who likes using the internet to contact loved ones back home which is what we did each night. The connection is great in places and terrible in others so be sure to sit in different places inside and outside to find out where you get the best connection. The beds are another thing i have to add, we have never had a better week of sleep than we did here!!
The only bad points about the hotel i would say are that the rooms on bottom floor are small and the views aren't very nice to look at. We had room 116 and were disappointed as last time i stayed on a 3rd floor room at the front of the hotel which had a beautiful view of the Mounties and street. The music in the lobby is also overplayed and tedious as you hear the same thing every time you sit in the lobby.
All in all we had a great holiday, and would return to this hotel for a 3rd time!
