“Holiday break”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We stayed at this hotel from the 25th April to the 30th April 2014 and our room was well furnished and very clean. The food in the restaurant was very good with plenty of variety and the staff were friendly and attentive. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: The annexe is a newer building and therefore more up to date i.e. Shower cubicles are slightly large...

Very nicely and conveniently located hotel with great swimming pool in short distance from the beach. Staff is friendly, breakfast is great. The only one thing - wifi doesn't work in rooms - only in lounge. Has own parking.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the view of the mountains.

Stayed at this hotel for 8 nights end of sept/oct with 45 other people who had booked a tour with a certain company who in their wisdom put us up in this hotel. Room on 1st floor where until midnight every night had to listen to chairs being scraped across dining room floor whilst they cleaned the room, kept me awake most nights. Cannot complain about state of room as was clean all be it small, unlike other members of the group, plenty of storage twin beds not double but will push together and make up as a double if asked, large balcony. As others have stated small shower but i coped and even managed to wash my feet. BBC world news only english channel on TV. Noisy water pipes and from other rooms woken up different times through night from people flushing toilets or having showers.
Reception staff friendly which is more than can be said about bar and restaurant staff, there wasn't enough of them for amount of guests the barman doubling up as a waiter or table clearer sometimes taking ages to get a drink at the bar because he kept disappearing. Breakfast not of a 4*, bacon was more like heated sliced ham, scrambled egg look like it was made from powdered eggs very unappetising so it was a bowl of tinned fruit, yoghurt and honey for me every morning not keen on the meats and cheese, there are croissants but no cake or brioches.
We had to sit at a certain set of tables every night after 2nd night we didn't have to ask for water a carafe was put on table before we sat down. But noticing other tables apart from our group were getting carafes of wine every night ??? Evening meals consisted of a pasta dish under cover, hot and a couple more dishes of pasta lukewarm a meat either pork or chicken a fish dish and vegetables, salad bar and a few puddings same old cake or blancmange type puddings. We ate out one night when choice was horrible. Plates took ages to be cleared off table our groups anyway. I must say one thing though the lady sitting at my table was on a gluten free diet they did make her a very large toasted bun every morning and pasta in tomato sauce every night until i suggested they cook the fish or meat without the sauce and gravy for her to give her a change, but even then she felt awkward having to ask every day even though they knew she was there for 8 nights.
No lounge to sit in only bar with tables and chairs no sofas or comfy chairs in an area to relax in, wifi is free but you have to sit in the bar to get it and then its hit and miss we couldn't get on internet unless we sat by the main entrance door. There is only one lift quicker to go up stairs sometimes long queues. Didn't use pool area so cannot comment. No entertainment whatsoever provided by hotel.
From Hotel its a short walk through park gates to beach or further round through the very small town of Torbole with some lovely restaurants and shops, took about 45 mins to walk along beach to Riva pretty town. There are water taxis to take you around lake timetable for these or buses can be got from hotel reception. There is a Co op supermarket more or less next to hotel.
We had a fantastic holiday/tour Lake Garda is so pretty and so is Torbole and thankfully only had to use hotel to sleep in as there is no way this is a 4* maybe a 2* and would never pay to stay here again but have not let it spoil an otherwise fantastic holiday, just hope tour operator thinks twice about sending guests there again.

Room Tip: Don't have a room on the first floor, noise from dining room.

Trying to shower in a 26" box, is not something I would recommend, impossible to bend and touch your toes, never mind wash them, and the fixed showerhead means if you want to wash your private bits, it is best to take a sponge, unless you have access to a small ladder. If you are from the UK it is advisable to take a travel kettle for your morning or nighttimes cup of tea or coffee. Also required is an AC 250V Italy Plug to US UK AU EU Socket Travel Adapter, as the 3 pin Italian sockets are smaller than the standard EU ones. the hotel rooms were OK, and they have changed to a help you self at meal times in the restaurant.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 604 in the annex with our balcony overlookin the pool

Stayed in this excuse of a hotel for a week book via the Travel Department who should be ashamed to let people pay out big money to stay here.

The hotel was old dirty with the sink in the room cracked. The bed lined was not changed for the week, the bed spreads had stains on them and holes in the curtains.

The Breakfast was ok what one expects on the continent. The Dinner which was included was poor the so called hot food was barely luke warn and no staff on in the dining room faulty towers at its best.

Has to be one of the worst hotels I have even set foot in and would not recommend this place to any one and it should be visited by hotel and health inspectors.

I know and knew when booking a four star in Italy would not be the same as a four star in Ireland but my god this place took the biscuit.

Avoid this place at all costs if you want to enjoy your holiday

spent 8 days at this so called 4 star hotel Sept/Oct this year. The food was poor in the extreme, overcooked or undercooked and the staff were totally indifferent to complaints.The room was small, cleaned occasionally and the the shower was so small that it was impossible to bend down to wash ones feet.The cracked wash basin added little to the ambience.There is no lounge and the bar offers little in the way of welcome. The barman is offhand and slow bordering on rudeness. The dining room is too small for the number guests and used crockery is not cleared . I coiuld not recommend this hotel to anyone/.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor.

We have just returned from 8 nights at this hotel. When we arrived our room was in the annex. It was damp, the bedroom was very small and there was black mould on the ceiling in the bathroom. We were given another room next morning which was nice. The restaurant was disorganised, the food very basic (if you like pasta or pork), the bartender kept disappearing to help clear tables in the restaurant and peoople had to wait to be served and the restaurant staff were not always very helpful! The hotel is nicely situated for the lake, buses ,etc and plenty of restaurants in the area. The young lady on reception was very helpful. Would not want to stay here again.

Room Tip: room 313 was the second room we had and it was very nice.
