This hotel offers friendly comfortable accommodation at reasonable prices. Breakfast is buffet style and offers a wide range which should provide choice for everyone. We found the reception staff helpful and willing. We like to eat out and try local restaurants however used the hotel for dinner one evening and we're not disappointed. The set menu offered five courses with...

I never have high expectations of hotels, have been disappointed too many times, but was pleasantly surprised that the positive reviews that others had left were completely accurate. This is a very comfortable hotel, well located between Garda & Bardolino, a very pleasant 20 minute walk along the lake's toe path to each town. The room was of good quality,...

Stayed here for 10 nights, staff were very friendly and nothing seemed to big for them...room itself had a large balcony and was spacious enough with a decent bathroom. Facilities were good, and day trips to Venice, Milan were do able. Nearby Bardalino worth a visit.

We stayed for a week in September travelling with Thompson to see Lake Garda. It's a lovely hotel excellently positioned mid way between the small lakeside village of Garda and the slightly larger village of Bardalino. Both Villages can be reached easily on foot. It's a stroll of about 15 minutes/20 minutes along a wide level footpath and bicycle path...
