Welcoming hotel in convenient locationPosted Aug 4, 2017
Pros: The friendliness of the staff and the location - so convenient
We stayed for 10 days at this hotel and it was a fantastic base for our first trip to Lake Garda. All the staff were really friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were good with lots of choice. The fresh fruit salad was delicious. We also ate at the hotel twice in the evening and the food was very good. The room was comfortable and clean - my only slight criticism is that the mattress was firmer than I like (but of course that is personal preference - my husband thought it was perfect!). The location was brilliant - a 2 minute stroll to the lake and boardwalk. It's roughly a 30 minute walk into Desenzano town from where you can catch the ferry to other locations on the lake or the train to Milan (50 mins) or Venice (1 hour 40). Just round the corner from the hotel is a lovely area called Rivoltella which has some good restaurants and a great ice cream parlour. A big plus for the hotel is that they have bikes which you can borrow. These are well maintained - we particularly enjoyed cycling to Sirmione and sailing past the long line of cars queuing up to get there!

Great hotel, but needs some improvementsPosted Jul 6, 2017 on Hotels
Location was great. The hotels looks better than in pictures. Staff at the reception and restaurant very helpful and easy to talk to. The food was very good - breakfast and dinner. However, the restaurant did not offer a wide range of choices for dinner. We were disappointed by the cleaning of the rooms, as the towels weren't changed as they were supposed to. Smell in the bathroom and lack of hand soap (no refill).
Our 2nd visit - another comfortable stayPosted Jul 4, 2017 on Hotels
Our 2nd time here and efforts have been made to 'spruce it up' which is nice. Unfortunately our experience of the 'hot tub' this time wasn't good - water level low & not warm ! On asking a girl at reception she said she didn't know how to remedy it and someone would be back to help - they didn't arrive. Another day a helpful lady topped it up with a hose pipe but needless to say the level dropped and it wasn't warm! Anyway, very helpful staff in general especially when I car broke down! And breakfast is plentiful

Relaxing stayPosted May 18, 2017
Pros: Small and friendly
Cons: Temperature in pool, cold but refreshing when body got used to temperature.
Location: On main road leading down into Desenzano, plenty of restaurants within a 20 minute walk all good value and excellent food.
Small friendly hotel. Bar staff very friendly and could not do enough to help. Room very comfortable with large terrace.

Hotel a 50 meters from lago de GardaPosted Oct 30, 2016
The room was not cleaned yet when we arrived knowing that check in time starts at 2pm and we arrived 4:20pm we waited for 15 minutes to have it ready. There was no hand wash liquid on the sink. The cleaner didn't clean the floor in the toilet the 2nd day of our stay. The room aircondition not working, we did opened the veranda door and it was so noisy outside as our room opposite the road hearing people talking and cars passing. For 2nights stay we didn't have a good rest.

Excellent Base for Lake VisitPosted Sep 10, 2016
Pros: Location. Facilities. Cleaness
Cons: Kettle. Small clothes airer.
We stayed here for 4 nights on our first visit to Italy. The hotel is well located for drivers looking for a base from which to tour the surrounding area. The rooms are spacious and clean with large bathrooms and a balcony. A/C is provided and a small fridge and safe. Good buffet breakfast. Nice pool and sun terrace and very near the beach at Rivoltella. Staff left us to it, but if we needed them, they were friendly, polite and helpful. I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you want to just lie by the pool all day, their are prettier spots to do that, but for our needs it was absolutely ideal.
