When we were dropped off by the airport bus at this hotel after the steep climb up from Lake Garda I wondered if I had made the right decision to stay up here. It was not long before I knew I had! The afternoon tea and cakes at 4pm were most welcome after our longer than expected (3 and a half hour) transfer from Milan airport. Every evening in the dining room was an occasion - five courses and a half liter carafe of wine and nearly always some music.Mrs Tonnelli, the owner would always come round and check her guests were happy, which they inevitably were due to her excellent staff. In particular, Lorenzo, head waiter is very efficient and obliging and in the Bar, Alex has a great rapport with all the guests and speaks very good English.The room was very clean and comfortable and having a corner room, I had an extra large wrap around balcony!There are tea and coffee making facilities but no milk (not added to drinks in Italy!) but this could be obtained from the bar or dining room. Would have been slightly nicer to have proper china cups instead of flimsy plastic ones but that is a minor detail. I used both the indoor and outdoor swimming pools during my stay and enjoyed having that facility. I question the former respondent who said that there were,' several good ways to walk down to Torbole.'I found two and would not tackle either without proper walking shoes on. The path under the Marmitte rock in particular was not for the faint hearted! If I said one of the hotel staff who lived in Torbole said the locals NEVER walk from Nago to Torbole then that is good advice to heed! The hotel runs a courtesy bus and there are service buses. I stayed here for a week as part of an organised holiday and would definitely recommend it as a place to stay. One advantage is that we were the last pick up and first drop offs on our trips to Venice and Verona. People staying in Limone had another 40 minutes each way of travelling! Altogether a lovely hotel with super staff who made us feel most welcome. Want to go back in the summer months!
