Recently arrived back from a 4 night stay at this hotel in Limone booked through Thomson Lakes and Mountains with Crystal Holiday reps looking after us in resort. This was our first trip to the Italian Lakes and we were totally blown away by the stunning beauty of the area, and without doubt the top end of Lake Garda where Limone is situated is the most beautiful place to be. Hotel Le Palme is well situated next to the Lake and the ferry port. Some of the ferries were a little noisy but this did not bother us, just added to the feel of the place. We paid a little extra for a lake view, well worth it. Our room though not huge was perfectly adequate with large very comfortable bed. Modern bathroom with lovely powerful shower. Everything very clean and was thoroughly cleaned every day.
Having read previous reviews about the dining arrangements we wondered how we would find it. We arrived on a Saturday and the restaurant was very busy. We were seated inside and did complain. Staff were very polite and we were informed that the following night when less busy we would have a different table. The following evening we had a table next to the lake which we had each night from then. The food, though nothing outstanding we found perfectly acceptable. A good selection of salad, then a choice of 4 starters, 4 mains and selection of sweets, fruit or cheeses. Wine, beer and water included. We found after a day of sight seeing and having a lovely lunch somewhere gorgeous, the hotel food was fine. Breakfast was extremely pleasant sitting lakeside with a large selection of cereals, breads preserves and hot food watching the boats.
Limone itself has plenty of cafe bars and shopping through lots of small cobbled streets, a delight to wonder round. Whilst we were there it was extremely hot with hardly a breeze so the air conditioning in our room was a welcome relief.
Getting about the top end of the lake was easily negotiated by the ferries. Riva is a lovely place. We did do a lake tour by boat available from the new port which took us to Sirmione and Garda, taking in various sights on the way which was very pleasant. We also went to Malcesine then by cable car to the top of Monte Baldo which is recommended even though the queue was huge. The scenery up there is absolutely fabulous!
All in all we had a wonderful time and would have no hesittion in recommending Hotel Le Palme and Limone, though perhaps not really a family holiday.
