Beautiful hotel on Lake Gardone
We stayed here for two nights while visiting the area. This hotel is the best we've stayed in in Italy during our 19 day trip. The atmosphere is elegant but welcoming - the staff is absolutely wonderful! Our luggage was in our room by the time we finished checking in. One of the gentlemen in the bar makes a wonderful lemon fizz - NOT out of the can! The dinner was delicious, and the breakfast buffett is huge - wonderful pastries and fruits, plus hot food. The large terrace gives a great view of beautiful Lake Gardone. We will definitely come back if we're anywhere near this area! Highly recommend!
I have stayed at this hotel twice for business purposes and would return in a heartbeat with my family. Pros - Views from the room overlooking Lake Gardone cannot be beat, so relaxing so sit out on the little terrace with 2 chairs to take it all in. Food options are excellent (made to order omelette station for breakfast!). Staff are attentive and helpful. Conference room with connecting outdoor terrace space are stunning. Prime location for boardwalk stroll, very romantic area! Cons - The room keys are large and heavy (but you can leave it at the front desk), decor is classic and dated in some areas, but this is part of the charm (creaky halls, old elevators). Not enough guest rooms for our conference to accommodate everyone.
Truly traditional grand hotel in the beautiful lake garda.
We arrived at the Grand Hotel following our cruise on Queen Victoria, the hotel is right on the edge on Lake Garda in Gardone Rivivera infact they have a section of the lake buoyed off so that you can swim in it, there is also a great outdoor swimming pool as well and at the edge of the hotel is the jetty for the late boats that act as buses taking you to various places. The hotel is spread over a large area so not for people who can't walk or negotiate steps. At one end is the reception and the lounge and then midway is the restaurants and at the far end is the pool and sunbathing area and the pool bar as well. We found excellent choices at the restaurants and pool bar and very god buffets. The staff were very good and helpful. Our room was up on the 3rd floor and overlooked the pool bar, sunbathing area and the late and we had 2 balconies as well. Very clean, tidy and also close to the local Restaturants and Shops. Worth considering it...
Nice but not all it seems
This hotel has a lovely location, being on the lake. The reception and room cleaning staff were delightful - friendly and very helpful. However, the waiting staff and bar staff were obsequious to most guests (couples) but largely ignored me when I was on my won. In fact, when I went to sit in the evening on a sofa in the bar area, no one acknowledged me, although all couples were being greeted and asked what they wanted to drink, and when someone eventually came over to me, it was to ask me to move as the "sofa" was reserved!! How ridiculous! As I was holidaying with a friend, we, as two single women, were not given anywhere near the attention that the couples were. Had I been there with my husband, I think it would have been very different.
Our Wedding Annivesary Holiday Hotel
Another happy week at the Grand meeting old friends and all the staff who look after us so well each year at the Reception and in the Dining Room and Winnie's Bar. Excellent breakfast buffet and dinner menu.
