I am also looking to book Malcesine for next May for our special L 30th Wedding Anniversary holiday, and was wondering why nearly all the hotels in Thomson Lakes & Mountains and Thomas Cook brochures are half board?
We like going to eat out in the evenings at different restaurants so there is a very limited choice of b&b's. Hotel Excelsior Bay looks very nice - 4star, but is half board, a bit worried about committing to one restaurant all week, any comments on this hotel anyone?
The is only 1 decent looking b&b in the Thomson brochure for this resort - Hotel Augusta , the peach hotel next to the cable car station, a bit worried about the cable car noise here, any comments? But this hotel does seem to have good reviews on here with 48/49 excellent or very good! So now can't decide between a these 2 hotels, the Excesior bay has a excellent position,is 4 star,so more money, but evening meal included, the Augusta gives us the freedom to choose different places to eat every night. but is 3 star and much cheaper..what would you do?
