Family of four (kids 17 & 15) travelled in early August 2012. Stayed for 10 days and had an excellent, relaxing time. The Ifigenia has a superb location right on the Lake side with the town of Torbole 500 metres to the right as you look over the Lake. We had a family room (37) which was more than adequate in size with a MASSIVE balcony and beautiful views over the lake; especially in morning and early evening. Our only (small) gripe is that there is no Air-Con but we were aware of this before we travelled. Breakfast was continental style and adequate. Hotel has its own pool at the front and the whole atmosphere is very relaxing. Wi-Fi is provided in the lobby area FOC.
Torbole hosts International Wind-Surfing on the Lake and the hotel is well geared-up for surfers and bikers and has a special room/garage where sporting equipment can be stored.
The staff were excellent - all round friendly with mostly good English. Special mention for Ingrid on reception who was charming and always very helpful.
Torbole has a good selection of Restaurants with reasonable prices and a few touristy shops alongside boutiques.
We had a car and used the Hotel's car-park FOC for the whole stay. Its a little tight in the car-park so care is needed when moving the car in & out!
We travelled to Verona, Venice, Sirmione & Gardaland during our stay all of which are within easy reach using the A22 autostrada (A4 for Venice). Transfer time from Verona Airport is around 45 minutes in a car.
Lake Garda in general is a beautiful setting and we would recommend The Ifigenia as an excellent budget-style location to stay.
