A previous reviewer has written, "AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!" - their experience was obviously very different from mine. I would return anytime - and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. On my (early) arrival at the hotel my room was not ready, so I was offered and gratefully accepted a complimentary cup of coffee. Before too long I was accompanied to my room. As a single traveller I have stayed in many hotels and been very disappointed with the rooms. Not so in this case. There was no single room supplement. Yes, the room was quite small and had a single bed, but I had paid a small supplement for a balcony and actually got a terrace. I had hoped for a lake view and as my room was at the front of the hotel thought this would be the case. Initially I was disappointed that the lake view was obscured by a rather large palm tree, but I had wonderful mountain views. Before long I was glad of that tree - it provided shade during the hot and wonderfully sunny days. As for the food, I was more than satisfied. Breakfast had a wide choice, including scrambled eggs, dellcious bacon and a choice of cereals, breads, meats and cheeses. For dinner there was normally a choice of three starters, main courses and desserts, with two gala dinners offering additonal courses. Not once in the week was there a repition of dishes (except for dessert where two the choice always included fruit saled and mixed ice cream). I didn't mind having to make a choice at breakfast time, especially as this helps to keep costs down and reduces waste. The waiting staff were efficient and friendly. I would have to say, though, that drinks were quite pricey. Expect a bottle of Pinot Grigio to set you back 15 euros. The hotel was exceptionally clean throughout. I have to agree that German guests seemed to be treated in a different way to English speaking guests - but I would put this down to the problems of language. Perhaps the owners might work on their welcoming skills - but they work hard and were ever present. I had a problem with my room on the last night. The owner managed the situation very well and was very reassuring towards me, aware that I felt I had been part of the cause! The hotel is on the edge of the town, near to Torbole, but there is a beautiful twenty minute walk into town along the lakefront. Would I go there again? Anytime. Should you go there? Give it serious consideration.
