Our stay at Hotel Marconi was the first leg of our honeymoon and what a great start to our holiday.
This was the first time that either of us had been to Lake Garda and really couldn't have chosen a better place to kick off our honeymoon. Sirmione was a beautiful town. On arrival, we couldn't believe how busy the place was so be prepared if arriving in the afternoon to work your way through the many tourists visiting for the day. This was in total contrast to Sirmione in the evening where we almost had the place to ourselves.
The hotel itself was pretty easy to find. We were greeted by a very friendly lady on reception who showed us to our room. We were lucky to get a room with a full lake view which was absolutely gorgeous, particularly when the sun was setting. The room was quite spacious and very comfortable and clean. We didn't spend too long in the grounds of the hotel as we travelled in October but can imagine that in summertime, sitting outside relaxing with a nice Aperol Spritz aside the lake would be so peaceful.
We decided to eat out in town on the first night of our stay but were slightly disappointed by the quality of food so opted to eat in the hotel on the second night. Having enquired about the menu for the evening, the guy at reception talked us through the menu but also said with enough notice were happy to provide alternative dishes. We chose the food on offer and were delighted with the quality of the food, the service from the staff and overall dining experience so would strongly recommend that you eat in here at least once. Breakfast was also superb. There is more on offer here than you could imagine and if you have a sweet tooth, be prepared for a lengthy breakfast which you might need to walk off later!
In terms of location, the hotel is perfectly situated as it is just off the main street to make it a small walk away from the main shops and restaurants but still quiet enough to think you are the only hotel in the place. We sat outside on our balcony and couldn't believe how peaceful it was.
This is a family run hotel which has traditional decor and reminds me of how hotels used to be. The service from the staff is fantastic and you are made to feel so at home here. It's the little things that make this such as a "good morning" from reception as you walk down the stairs of the welcome plant with a "Welcome" sign on it in your room. There was also a lovely parting gift for us as we checked out which was a nice touch.
Overall, if you are looking to stay in Sirmione then do choose this hotel. Do trust the good reviews on Trip Advisor. They are all true. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you for a wonderful stay Hotel Marconi.
