Fabulous stay...we are here now! Enza is a superb hostess and such a lovely lady. The hotel accommodations are terrific (not plush but certainly comfortable, clean, convenient. This town, this locale, this time of year are all magical; church bells, early sunsets, quacking ducks, few tourists, cool temperatures. Put this town and Hotel Grifone on your 'bucket list'. Ciao, ciao!

The hotel is normal. Great Location, normal room, good wifi connection... But the breakfast is amazing, our day began boring, but when we went to have our breakfast, we had a great surprise, 21 different cheese options, desserts, juices, coffees, chocolates, breads, cakes. Everything was delicious!!!

We arrived in The Grifone to a great welcome from a very pleant owner who wanted to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The views from our bedroom were spectacular and the breakfast on the balcony, which was included in a very reasonable tariff was excellent.There is a small beach beside the hotel where we swam in the lake and this only added to a great experience.
The hotel is spotless and very comfotable and when we left the owner came to the door with us and wish goodluck. We will be back

We arrived in Sirmione on morning last September and found this gem on lake Garda. Loved this hotel. The best we found in Italy. We stayed 2 nights in room 26 with balcony and lake view and 1 night in another room facing the castle because room 26 was reserved and we wanted to stay a third night in Sirmione. Rooms are spacious and only a small tv but we were not in Italy to watch TV. Private bathroom with tub and hand held shower. Comfortable and spotless! Lovely breakfast garden with view of the lake where you could sit as long as you wanted and enjoyed Lattes or Macchiatos with and amazing breakfast that's included in your nightly rate. The breakfast buffet really puts all other hotels to shame! Over a dozen different cheeses, breads, fruit, cereals, yogurt, Italian cold cuts, amazing coffees, juices, milk, sweet breads, desserts and sparkling wine for mimosas! You will not find this anywhere else. Free Wifi is also included.

Enza was wonderful! Pleasant, helpful and always available to answer our questions. She even walked out with us the day we left just like you would when a guest leaves your house.

Remember it's cash only. No credit or debit cards accepted, but there are two bank machines around the corner.

When we return to Italy, we will plan a few days at Hotel Grifone in Sirmione!

The rooms in this hotel were not updated, but they were very comfortable and clean. The owner of the hotel could not have been more accommodating. The location was right on the lake, next to the castle. The views from our window were spectacular. The most amazing thing was the free continental breakfast. The display and assortment of food was beyond belief, with bakery quality pastries and vast selection of cheeses, fruits and much, much more. Of all the years we have traveled, we have never experienced this overwhelming surprise. A two star hotel with a five star location and breakfast. A true value!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view. Book directly with hotel. Cash only.

As we travel in this day and age, we rely on reviews on sites such as the Trip Advisor for guidance in planning and selecting our accommodations. And quite often reviews are and should be taken with a grain of salt; over exaggeration, both negative and positive, and quite differing definitions and expectations of what one considers good quality and poor are evident in many reviews.
That being said, my stay at the Hotel Grifone does concur with the reviews, it did not disappoint. We were very pleased. Location was excellent, Room was clean, washroom was clean, Hotel was cozy and simple, much like bed and breakfast.
We had a short stay, triple room, 1st floor, overlooking the lake, with a fantastic view of the nearby castle. The breakfast was well laid out, perhaps the best assortment of foods and cheeses comparable to any grander establishments.
Of note, because the way Sirmione is situated, only hotel guests and their vehicles can be let across the bridge and that is for pick up and drop off only. Parking is on the other side of the bridge with a very modest fee.
And as with the other reviewers, I must commend the proprietress Senora Enza, who really is hands on and caring. She does a fantastic job and truly makes the Grifone a great gem.
We look forward to returning.

We stayed in a total of 8 different hotels on a recent trip to Italy and loved our stay at this place even better than 4 star hotels.
The location is perfect right in the center of everything, yet a quiet spot overlooking the lake. Our room had windows which opened onto a lake view. The room was simple but I'd say the only thing that would be a great addition would be an English language program on the tv to catch up with current affairs. The bathroom was a good size with a shower that had a strong spray and lovely hot water whatever the hour.
Best of all we loved the breakfast terrace - the setting can't be beaten anywhere. The food selection was the best we've ever had, with so many choices it was hard to chose. There were about a dozen different choices of cheese alone.
As most people mention, Enza really makes this hotel. She is always there to offer assistance or just to wish a cheery greeting. We'd definitely stay again when we are next in the area.
