We have just returned from a four day break. The hotel lived up to all our expectations. It is in a lovely quiet location right on the lake side. The owners are very hospitable, friendly and knowledgable. They made us so welcome. The Benaco room was spacious and well equipped with two balconies overlooking the lake. We ate in the hotel and also the sister hotel - Hotel du Lac which is very close. The food in both hotels is very good. The village is very romantic and quiet with several restaurants within easy walking distance. The ferry is also close making it easy to get to other parts of the lake. We followed the advice in the other reviews and hired a small car (rather than a larger one) which we appreciated as the roads in the villages can be very narrow. The only problem with the hotel is tearing yourself away at the end of the stay!
