We were staying for 4 nights, my wife, son aged 4 and myself. We arrived with a friendly welcome from Monica who came to our taxi to greet us. We had a lake view room with a small balcony. The view is impressive and the balcony served us well for what we needed, the occasional cold beer with a view. The room is adequate, could sleep up to 4, with a small empty fridge but was comfortable and clean.
All the staff were very nice, with a family atmosphere as the owners children were around and other family/ friends. breakfast was served in small dining area or you could move out on to the large terrace facing the lake. Best breakfast during our stay and while the same ( choice of egg, cereals, croissants, cheese, salami) there was enough choice not to make it repetitive. I found the coffee good for a hotel and much better than some 3/4 star hotels we used in Milan, Venice or Rome.
I found the location really good. I thought the old town or sirmione was of course lovely and the beech on the tip of the peninsula was lovely with crashing waves, but felt a bit crowded and resort like. Colombare where ca'serena is was more relaxed, a lot of Italian families which was nice with plenty to do ( we hired a boat, usual water sports, cycling). There are some decent places to eat and got some great recommendations from Monica. It's not far from the old town so easy too get to when you want to( less than 10 min bus ride/cycle) but near a small town where we topped up on fresh fruit etc. when we arrived the lake waters were lovely, granted not quite as turquoise as sirmione but still good swimming.
With free wifi to help plan our next leg of our trip it was a good all round place to stay for anyone really.
