We stayed here for the first week of our honeymoon. The hotel is a few minutes walk form Gargnano town - but the walk is so beautiful that's its a pleasure not a chore! We stayed in a room with a blacony and a view over the lake (which is totally worth it - goprgeous!). The room was large and clean with spectacular views.
Breakfast is served on the terrace next to the lake which was beautiful. Breakfast was lovely too with lots of fresh fruit, bread, meats, cheeses and an amazing selction of museli ingredients. We opted for B&B (which I would definitely reccommend) but also ate at the restaurant a couple of time which was good and pretty reasonably priced. There are lots of other places to eat nearby though so why limit yourself?
After breakfast lots of the guests hang out in the gardens sunbathing - you can go swimming in the lake via a small ladder from the garden which is great! However, it's easy to get to other locations around the lake using either the bus or boat service. We didn't have a car so worried slightly about getting to other places easily but it was simple.
The service was fantastic - lots of recommendations and help when we missed our bus after we checked out.
Gargnano itself is a quiet-ish town on the lake but had enough variety of restaurants and bars to keep up fed and watered for a week. I'd really recommend this place if you are wanting somewhere a little off the beaten track to relax and enjoy the gorgeous scenery.
