“Hotel du Parc”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Stayed at this hotel with my family last week, cannot recommend it highly enough. Nice, well appointed room with a great view of lake Garda, very helpful, pleasant staff, good pool, lots of nice restaurants within walking distance and reasonably close to the centre of Sirmione.

I fully expect to return to this fine hotel.

My daughter and I have just returned after another great holiday at the Du Parc. This was our 5th visit .Hotel is under new management this year, but we were looked after just as well as previously have been. Food as ever delicious and if you want variation to what is on the menu they are only too happy to oblige. Damiano and all the other waiters are so efficient. We went on the Lake Tour which is well worth doing as is Trip to Venice.Easy to get to great places via ferry from Sirmione. We particularly like Bardolino and Lazise and also Garda. Also had a visit to Aquaria Spa in Sirmione. Amazing. A young couple were the entertainment on the Thursday and they were great. The teenagers really joined in. Lovely to see them enjoy. Crystals rep Gail always very informative. Had a great time once again. Good luck to the new management and sincere thanks to all staff for wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms at back overlook pool. Rooms at front have lake view.

Agree 100% with positive comments here on staff attitude & service. Hotel very clean and well maintained but a little dated in some parts. Enthusiastic new owner/managers seem likely to tackle the negative aspects that caused us to doubt the 4* rating.
On arrival were advised that we had been upgraded (free) to a superior room. This provided the bonus of some better facilities. However, we were very unimpressed with the size & layout & doubted the ‘superior’ label (eg 1 single wardrobe, no soft chair & no drawer storage). Reception immediately responded with offer of another, larger, superior room (even hastening the cleaning). We stuck with the original as it had a better balcony & outlook, & more privacy than most others. Room air conditioning good & genuinely unrestricted. Daily cleaning faultless & quality of towels & linen good. Aside of the usual guest-generated corridor noises, the sound insulation standards were very good. However, our ‘quiet outlook’ request was a bit spoiled by intrusive monotonous evening music on weekend nights from nearby café.
Reception service on all enquiries was almost always friendly, responsive & good (odd exceptions were initial problem & delay over setting our room safe, & recording a non-existent fridge bar sale - happily resolved).
Pool & poolside very clean & thankfully the selfish early sunbed ‘towel bookers’ were not as much a problem as at other venues. Poolside space limited & pool size barely adequate; when family/young groups were in, it made swimming impossible. But this was not really a problem until after late mornings - & the mixed age range made for a livelier holiday ‘feel’! The sunbeds were OK but a little basic; plenty of parasols to go round.
The poolside bar area was well frequented. The folks who like the sedate ‘live’ evening music thing, did seem happy with it. Bar service was generally good with a mark-up of up to around 1 Euro against local bar prices.
Internal bar and reception area with the free wif fi (good connection) suffered, for us, from the lack of air-conditioning. In the late evening, the area became very humid and sweaty.
The food and catering arrangements did not come up to our expectations. Restaurant staff were attentive & efficient. However, over the period, the standard of food was for us variable - generally not impressive & sometimes unimpressive. Although never really bad enough to complain about, it was ‘unimpressive’ as in: main course portions often small and sometimes not hot; repetitive & sometimes odd offer on self-service buffet starters and desserts; & repetitive & limited offer on breakfast. Dining areas just about adequate for number of dinners. Dinners were allocated to a specific table on arrival. This led to some dinners requesting changes (which could not always be met). We would certainly have refused some table locations if allocated them. We really did not like having to use breakfast time to pre-choose dinner choices - especially on days when there was nothing special to look forward to.
We found there was more to Colombare than first meets the eye. On weekend late evenings the cafes get quite a bit of local life going on. Best tip is be aware that the full traditional siesta is observed, so on first take it can appear dead for much of the afternoon. Streetscape is good quality & well maintained & we felt safe at night. A large supermarket near the big roundabout is helpful for any sundry needs. It’s worth persevering with the lakeside walk to Lagano; needs a little diversion via the main street before getting back onto the lakeside to get to the Lagona large & busy public lakeside beach area.
Crystal rep service sufficient where we needed it, although there were some minor problems with the connecting bus service on arrival (Crystal is in the same group as Thomson, but we’ve always had better experiences with Crystal; especially with welcome-talk info on local public transport).
Free hotel excursion to Verona went very well. Hotel shuttle bus to Sirmione was safe & (for us) reliable with a little pre-planning & reservation (it was also essential for us to fully enjoy our stay). We used the local public transport buses to visit Pescheria which is an attractive & historical small port. Buses were safe, clean & cheap (7 Euros return) . But the advice about Italian bus drivers running up to 18 minutes later than timetable are true. We also learned the hard way to be very sure about directions & exact point of alighting in a strange town!
Extra tip: Check out equipped gym & sitting out area (quiet) with great views on top floor of the hotel.

Room Tip: The size, outlook etc. of individual rooms seem to vary even within similar categories (such as '...

This hotel is situated near Colombare so it is not in the centre of Sirmione, which suited us as Sirmione was full of tourists and really busy. It is a half hour walk down there but we went on the Hotel shuttle bus and caught the local bus back. You can get tickets for the bus from Reception and get them validated when you get on the bus. The hotel shuttle bus does not run that often but the staff were helpful and offered to put on another run when it was full. We also hired the hotel bikes and cycled down there and round to Pescheira on the lake path. There are a couple of markets in Colombare - one in the morning and one in the evening. There is also a supermarket and various restaurants, bars and gelateria. The location is great if you are going on any organised excursions as it is at the bottom of the Lake and therefore one of the last pick up points.
The Reception staff were exceptionally helpful and printed off railway timetables for us as well as finding where I could go for a manicure/pedicure. Monica's English was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for her. The restaurant and kitchen staff were equally friendly and helpful. We needed a gluten-free diet for two of our party and they made sure we knew exactly what we could eat and adapted dishes for us. At the end of our stay, the chef was cooking special gluten-free desserts for us. Breakfast is buffet style and there is a good range of options although the hot ones are limited. Dinner is chosen at breakfast and there are 4 choices for the first and second course.
The hotel pool is not huge but we never had trouble finding a sun bed and we went in the school holidays. The pool towels were €25 each (refundable) which we thought was really expensive as we are used to paying €10. However, we didn't have to pay for the room safe which was a bonus. The whole hotel was immaculately clean and the air conditioning in the room was effective. It is a shame that there is no air conditioning in the lobby which is the only place you can use the wifi. The hotel is relatively quiet in the evening although the bar and terrace are open. We walked down to the bar on the Lake front for an Aperol Spritz or a Hugo.
We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel and felt well looked after. A big thank you to all the wonderful staff.

When booking this hotel I paid extra for a superior room. on arrival on the 6th July 2013 we were given a dark family room on the ground floor. The reason for the darkness was because of a large tree directly in front of the patio doors. I am not comfortable sleeping on the ground floor and if I had known the hotel had bedrooms on the ground floor, would not have booked there. We tried changing the room as soon as we found out the room was on the ground floor but were only offered another room on the ground floor. The receptionist told us these were the only rooms available as the hotel was full. If you have difficulty sleeping on the ground floor because of security worries, do not book into this hotel. The hotel is not near the lake and a lake view room would not be directly over the lake. We found the hotel food reasonable, buffet breakfast and waiter service dinner. You ordered your dinner at breakfast, I personally did not have a problem with this neither did I have a problem with the rooms being cleaned whilst we were at breakfast. The waiters were very good, especially Ivan who made us laugh everytime he served us. The swimming pool is quite small for the size of the hotel, three blow up turtles, three children and three adults and it is crowded. Columbare has numerous bars and eating places, a market on Monday and a Craft market on Friday. Buses are cheap and can be caught at the top of the road,they dont always arrive at the same time as the bus timetable though and remember to buy your ticket from the tobacconist. Sirmione can be reached by bus if you do not fancy the 40 min walk. Ferries depart from there and we had a lovely trip to Bardolino. Sirmione itself is quaint with many good eating places.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor at the front

The staff was always helpful and pleasant. Great location in a quiet area. Foods on hotels hold a very good quality, especially the breakfast that was included. Hotel Du Parc was an enjoyable experience for the whole family. Here, we will gladly return.
