Excellent views, some lovely staff…just quite a few quibbles for the money
The hotel is much more worthy than the 3* rating I have given, however for our Junior suite price of over €300 a night, I expect better than the just a great view. The hotel gardens are immaculate, the bed in our room looked out over the lake and was very comfortable, the pool area and indoor spa a bonus, especially with the poor weather we experienced in our week in Italy in early May, that you certainly cannot blame the hotel for! So way the lower rating? There were a number of niggles with room 404, the large walk-in shower did not produce consistent hot water, there was a problem with the plumbing and the pipes banged and sadly it just spat out cold water. I reported it on day 1 and nothing happened. The rooms above seemed to have their toilet waste pipe running through our room as every time a toilet was used and flushed, it was quite loud. There is no soap tray in the large walk in shower, so it meant leaving everything on the floor…I have a bad back, so not easy for me. Fit a tray! There was no tea/coffee facilities in the room, once again I asked at reception and was told I could collect hot water from the bar if I wanted it…not that easy first thing in the morning with no one around. There was no iron in the room. The water in the fridge was not restocked until I asked, even though they were charging for it. The Wi-Fi through out the hotel was appalling, it was not a connection issue but download speeds were never any better than 1 mbps, mainly as low as 0.2 so unusable in most cases. Finally on the room front, I think the TV was connected to the hotels internet as going through menus was painfully slow. TV in Lake Garda is no biggy, but with the poor weather, sometimes needed to kill an hour or two. Sadly just one English speaking channel that worked, BBC world news. The review is not meant to be scathing, the hotel has some beautiful views and lovely staff. Would I return here, probably not. My wife and I are in our mid 50’s. The walk down to the resort was quite pleasant except for the 200-300m you have to do on the main road with no pavement. The slog back after dinner up the steps and fairly steep drive not great after dinner and wine. Breakfast at the hotel became boring after seven days, the hot offerings were not great and luke warm. I’m never that keen on being critical but remember it was a €300 plus per night room. Lake Garda is beautiful and Italian people lovely!

Breathtaking view 11/10! Don’t hesitate!
Lovely hotel at walking distance of Malescine. For me is the view very important so this hotel was just perfect. Great rooms, perfect breakfast, very friendly and nice waiters, amazing pool with breathtaking views....I come back one day, that’s for sure.
Stunning Hotel and Situation
My wife and I stayed here for a week, 14th – 20th September it and was our third visit, 1997, 2010 and 2019. The quality and high standard set by the owner/manager has been maintained over all those years and is a credit to him and to the staff that interpret it. I have run a four-star hotel so understand the challenges and know when I find a good one! This hotel is just perfect and in a stunning location with amazing lake views from the hotel and the beautifully designed garden - at nights the grounds are beautiful lit creating a magical atmosphere, certainly one of the best we’ve ever visited and one of our favourites! A beautiful place in which you can have every attention! Everything is here with no need to move far unless you want to, the perfect place to relax and reflect. The staff are friendly polite and expert taking a pride in all they do, nothing was too much trouble, to mention any one of them by name would be unfair to the others – some we did not see but felt their presence with their attention to detail from the cleaner to the chef. All the meals were presented with style and creativity in the delightful restaurant or on the terrace as you choose, managed expertly by the Restaurant Manager and his staff. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with all that you would expect. Its difficult to drag yourself away at the end of your holiday which assure a return again before too long.
Lovely hotel in peaceful location
Lovely hotel with wonderful views of the lake. The meals were delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a 20 minute walk along the lake into Malcesine most mornings. Plenty of ferries from there to explore other places around the lake. Go early to catch the cable car to Monte Baldo to avoid the crowds. Perfect time of year to visit.
