“beautiful location”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Hotel Gardesana is nicely located, directly on the beach. The hotel is very authentic with rooms of different sizes, all quite small but nicely decorated.

Only disappointment is the service. Very, very slow. If you order a beer be prepared to wait for 20 minutes. This is not because the employees are lazy but the hotel is understaffed which seems to be true for a lot of restaurants too.

My husband and I spent six nights in Room 102 and had a lovely experience. The highlights of the room were the lovely tall windows that opened out onto a balcony that overlooked
the port of Torri del Benaco and the high ceilings. Hotel Gardesana is a great base for a stay on Lake Garda. Torri is a charming town with many nice restaurants. Breakfasts were very good and service was excellent.

The setting for this hotel is so perfect, you could well believe it's a film set. We had the most wonderful time. However, remember it's a 3 star hotel with rooms to match. Our room was ok, but fairly small and the shower had seen better days (there was mildew and grouting discoloured etc). Breakfast was ok as well, but nothing special. But did we care? No. We spent all our time enjoying the hotel's exquisite location, atmosphere, and entertainment on the square which included music most nights, dancing on sunday and a market on monday. Public areas of the hotel are nice, especially the arched terrace. We enjoyed several excellent meals on the balcony of the hotel's a la carte restaurant. The owner was charming, as was the lady maitre d' in the restaurant. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: A lake view is a big bonus

We have stayed at this Hotel twice the last time in May, this time we travelled with friends and we loved it even more. The rooms are not large, most have balconies which have wonderful views of the castle and the harbour, this hotel is right in the middle of the square. The evenings are so beautiful sitting with a glass of wine in the hotel outdoor area which is in the square looking at the sunset with people passing by it is amazing. The owners are hands on, the service is great, breakfasts are very good, parking is easy. There is a frequent bus which visits the other villages on the lake. We caught the bus to Verona which was very easy. Torri is a wonderful little village, the ferry does not stop there on every trip which is why the village is so good it is not as crowded. Do you visit a magical place three times? I would like to.

We decided to eat at the Ristorante Torri (attached to the Hotel Gardesana) one evening and had a fantatsic experience. The restaurant is located by the little harbour so has great views across lake garda and is very peaceful in the evening.

The meal was one of the best that we had in italy. Would particularly recommend the lavaret with truffle and celeriac. The puddings were absolutely divine! We opted for the home-made cake of the day which was chocolate and pear and absolutely delicious. The chef added a complimentary taster of his strawberry mousse which was fantastic.

The waiters were very and the service was excellent. All in all we had a great experience and would definitely return!

We chose Lake Garda to marry. This wonderful place with natural beauty is 'second to none'. Our Wedding Ceremony was held in a Castle, boat room. A rustic, romantic and beautiful place!!

Our Wedding Reception was held couple of metres away from the Lake, a restaurant called Hotel Torri / Gardesana. The Hotel itself is stunning - and with that view, Wow!!! The staff were professional and efficient - and the food was absolutely fabulous!! Everything we asked for was delivered with style and professionalism. A week we will never forget. Many thanks to Giuseppi and his valuable staff for making our day very special.

Room Tip: Excellent all round

Stayed at the gardesana with friends in early May so it was the beginning of the season. The hotel has bags of character, the staff are friendly and helpful. The location has to be one of the best on lake Garda over looking a small square and harbour. If you can get a room with a lake view and balcony it's definitely worth a little extra. The food in the restaurant on the first floor was superb, the chef came and spoke with us before our meal making recommendations, we spent a very enjoyable evening eating, drinking and chatting in great surroundings and not rushed at all. Put yourself in their hands you won't be disappointed. Thoroughly recommended, we will be returning for another visit.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a lake view and balcony
