“Best hotel experience ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

I have been fortunate to stay in a number of renowned luxury hotels, but have never experienced service, quality, and elegance like we did at the Villa Feltrinelli. Words can't do justice to how wonderful the place is. The beautiful grounds and view, the decor steeped in history with wonderful antiques, the restaurant with absolutely delicious food, the room (we stayed in the Muslone suite and loved it), the lovely, warm staff, the music in the room (selection of jazz, classical, opera or relaxation music - all one needs!), the bath products (full size Aqua di Parma), the complimentary and well-equipped mini-bar, the free (and efficient) laundry service... I could go on. They have mastered everything down to the final detail. It is faultless, and we will certainly be returning regularly.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Muslone suite, and loved it. It was beautifully decorated, with a nice view of the...

We stayed in a Junior Suite in the main villa, on the first floor. The suite had high painted ceilings, many large windows overlooking the gardens, and was very tastefully and elegantly furnished. The bathroom was superb.

The settings of the Villa in the park, with its shore on the lake is spectacular. The staff members are extremely professional, helpful and friendly.

I agree with other comments made about the food served in the restaurant. It is delicious and sophisticated, yet a bit too fancy for dinner every night one is there. We did try a few other local restaurants with good food, but none had the spectacular settings of Villa Feltrinelli. Having alternative menu choices with simpler dishes available at the Villa would have encouraged us to eat there every day.

All in all, our stay there was a memorable one, and would definitely not be the last.

Room Tip: Chose one of the suites in the main villa for a grand setting. Rooms on the first floor have high ce...

i dont know where to start and perhaps i should not because i wont be able to end the review. to put it quite simply, this is the most beautiful hotel i've been and i've been to many. villa feltrinelli will spoil you forever. now the four seasons just seem like a sheraton and the amans are well, just okay. no words can do this place justice. i recommend going to see for yourself.

Room Tip: any room really

We stayed in one of the Premium Junior Suites in the villa with views over the lake, and loved it. The suite was a good size and beautifully furnished. Dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant was a joy but for a more modest and authentic Italian experience book a table at one of the many restaurants in Gargnano, a pretty little town just a short walk away. Overall, it was an extravagant and indulgent stay, not easy on the wallet, but one which we enjoyed very much.

Villa Feltrinelli is our favorite hotel in the world, with Blanket Bay in New Zealand running a close second, though very different in tone. Villa Feltrinelli's location on the lake is heaven, the service and staff are flawless, the 19th century villa is decorated in the most beautiful and tasteful style yet has all modern conveniences one expects in the way of baths, the grounds of the hotel are impeccably manicured, and Garda itself is stunning from this side of the lake. Nothing more relaxing than reading on the deck chairs at the lake's edge or watching the ducks bob around. Breakfast and lunch on the terrace overlooking the lake are perfection. My only comment would be that for many nights, the dinners are a bit overly fancy, and one would be well advised to go to La Tortuga for one more low-key dinner during a stay of serveral nights. Walking to the restaurant and around the tiny town in the evening is also charming. The hotel's rates are staggering, but every bit worth it if you want a truly exceptional holiday. We've been four times over many years and were married at the villa, having rented all the rooms for our wedding guests. They all still talk about it as one of the most amazing experiences ever, and these are people who are fortunate to have a lot of amazing experiences. I can't say enough about magnificent place.

Room Tip: Rooms in the villa are far grander; rooms in the outer buildings are more contemporary in decor, but...

still awaiting a letter of acknowledgement or regret from this beautiful place where the staff dont reply to letters of complaint. We had a visit. The cat,Winston, takes precedence over the guests feelings and so we would be reluctant to return. The cat,if you are allergic, frightened or simply dont like animals in a restaurant, particularly when it reappears 3 times although you have explained you cannot eat with a cat watching every mouthful,while you eat fish and cannot be put away just while you eat because it belongs to the maitre d'. It spoilt our evening, our meal and our stay. There was a sheepish attitude next morning but no apology for ruining what could have been a lovely place to return to-I later rang and I wrote but the manger was on a break-it seems after 1 year he has not returned not does he take the feelings of guests seriously.we have not heard anything!!BYE BYE Feltrinelli.
The snacks/nuts in room,on arrival, were in an open dish with hot summer flies hovering-should be covered. not good for gluten free options.
place very peaceful.nil to do but so beautiful it should be a haven of tranquility and perfection

This hotel is excellent. So far, this is the best we've seen (tastes differ, of course, I understand visitors that didn't see it that way). Breathtaking views, great service, fantastic property. One might complain about things to do (no spa/no gym) but we found it to be offering everything we need - kayaking on the lake, heli trips to Alps, climbing to San Valentino, Garda boat trips, great restaurant, etc.

Room Tip: Stay in the main villa.
