We stayed 4 nights early October and had a fantastic stay. Accommodation was spotless and the staff very friendly and happy to assist.
We paid 10euros each for the breakfast on our first day as a treat - it was a continental breakfast with fresh fruit, yoghurt, cheeses, meats and fresh bread to chose from. We did then opt to visit the local bakery and buy own bread,cheese yoghurts etc and make our own at half the cost-but that is down to personal choice and as you're on holiday you may wish to treat yourself every day !!! We enjoyed our breakfast on our balcony soaking up the magnificent lake view.
The boats in October are minimal with only the car ferry running which you can use to get across to the other side of lake and visit Maderno - sorry cant comment on Maderno as never took the trip.
As there is a limited boat service, the bus service is excellent. We took the bus to Verona which was just over 1 hour and cost less than 10euro's each return - its best to buy your tickets in advance at the local tobacco shop which is right at the bus stop. Verona is well worth a visit.
We also took the bus to Malcesine (20-25mins) which is another popular place to visit in Lake Garda, there are many coffees shops and bars/restaurants to chose from to just sit and admire the view from. You can also take a boat trip from Malcesine over to Limone.
Torri is quieter than the likes of Malcesine and Garda but has a certian charm to it - and I would highly recommend a visit.
The hotel is up a steep hill but it is a short hill and everyone with a standard fitness level will be able to manage it with no problems. It is a 5min walk down the hill to the lake side where there are again many bars/resturants to chose from to have your pizza/pasta and of course your glass of Aperol Spritz !!
The hotel itself only offers snack food at the bar which was only open till abt 9pm - food includes pizza, panini's and the classic lasagne.
All in all, a pleasant stay, in a quieter location - but with excellent public transport services to be able to go and visit other places nearby if you so wish.
