The hotel is not very big but has all one needs to have a good stay in Garda. The reception staff are kind and helpful. A special mention goes for the morning receptionist whom unfortunately I forgot the name. He is a tall thin guy who is always with a smile and always ready to try and help at his best.

At the reception you will find a stand with leaflets and booklets which will help you decide what attractions to visit. The place is ideal for cyclists as cyle lanes are all over the place and cyclists are respected by car drivers. Also perfect for people into long distance running.

The rooms are basic but very comfortable. TV offers loads of stations if you are the type to need the tv to sleep. Towels changed every day and room cleaned also everyday. The breakfast is quite good with cold cuts, cereals, juices and also a sweet counter. Special mention goes to the waitress who takes care of the breakfast room. She has a great character.

The hotel has a secure parking area at the back of the hotel. We always found parking except one night but that would not spoil my opinion of this hotel.

One thing which can be improved is the Wi Fi conection. Wi Fi is free all over the hotel but in the second floor the singla was poor.

With a touch up of all rooms (modernisation) this can easily be upgraded in quality. (stars)

Room Tip: Ask for lake view as the morning view is beautiful !!!!

Looks a bit outdated on the outside. Inside it’s quite cosey and charming however. We stayed one night in a room with one window overlooking the lake, basic and clean. Friendly and helpfull staff. Spacious free parking behind the hotel which is convenient. About 10 minutes walk from small city center with restaurants, bars and shops. Breakfast is also basic but okay. Overall, we still doubt whether it is good value.

I have just been in this hotel....Would you believe it??.....they don't change the cloth napkins from one day to another just to spare them from washing them....we were presented with our same ones...something which made me loose all faith in their hygene. Spiders everywhere and old cutlery literally black as if burnt. Very old rooms with old furniture...and very arrogant staff. Nightmare.

This hotel is in a fabulous location. The breakfast was very good and plentiful. The balcony in our family room was only fit for one person at a time so not really suitable for us but due to the mosquitoes in the evening the balcony was a place to be avoided!
The owners do not speak much English but the waitress had good English if you were stuck with anything. Basic Hotel, great location and suitable for a bargain break.

The hotel overlooking the lake, however not all rooms with lake view thought and about 5 to 10 mins walk to the pier. It managed by a family, most of them speak very little English, and I didn't really get any services at all. Overall, acceptable with its room rate.

We stopped for one night at this hotel on our drive down through the lakes to Venice. The hotel was in a great location a very short stroll along the lake foreshore to the humming restaurant strip and shopping. Brilliant shopping in this place, we were so surprised at how trendy the place was and had no idea what to expect a lakeside town.
The rooms were very basic but clean and the wifi internet downstairs in the lobby was ok too. Breakfast was nice, very typical of Italy and the service was ok. There was guest parking which I think was free.
This town was a pleasant surprise and we went to an amazing restaurant about a 2 minute walk from the hotel. What a great place to add to our adventure list!
