Via Zanardelli 190, Gardone Riviera, Lombardy, Italy
"Last month my partner and I stayed for 3 nights before continuing on to Verona. We both travel alot for work but were absolutely blown away by this hotel. It was paradise. We had a beautiful lake view room with a large balcony/terrace that had 2 chairs, a table and a sun umbrella, which overlooked the terrace restaurant. One of my favourite memories was sitting on the balcony one evening listening to the pianist playing just below. The staff are all incredibly friendly and speak at least 3 languages, Italian, German and English. Nothing was ever too much trouble, only small point - the service at breakfast was a little slow. They could have cleared the dirty plates quicker. The room was lovely with lots of towels, toiletries, flip flops to wear and a wicker bag to use poolside, which you could purchase. Fresh still and sparkling water was put in the fridge every day, one day it wasn't and we mentioned it to reception, within ten minutes it had been rectified with an apology. We ate in the fish restaurant one evening, beautiful food and service, and then the next evening we ate in the recommended restaurant nearby and were taken and picked up by the hotel VW Bus which was so much fun. Again the food was exquisite. Breakfast was plentiful and there was something for everyone. Lake Garda is a stunning place to visit and this hotel is pure luxury. I would recommend it to anyone and hope to return again. "
"From the wonderful welcome with complimentary welcome drinks served on the terrace to the ice cold bottles on water for our onward journey, absolutely nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and approachable staff at this 5 star hotel. The setting is unbeatable and everything about it oozes old world charm and total luxury with modern cleanliness and amenities thrown in. Writing this review reluctantly as it’s too good to share!"
"We booked a spacious suite with a splendid direct view of the Garda lake. The service of the personnel was indeed personal ; excellent. The gastronomic restaurant was outstanding. We used the Spa services several times; also of high standard. The reception was very helpful and booked, taxis, other restaurants and booked a private boat tour for us which collected us right in front of the hotel. Lifetime experience for 8 days stay."
