This hotel came highly recommended to us. Particularly important is, as a coeliac I have to have gluten free food at all times. The owner is also a coeliac so she knows the score. I was told a simple system was in place, only eat off a white plate. It worked. The staff all helped ensure my Italian food experience was the best. While I couldn't have everything off the menu, I enjoyed great Italian food. It was all simply delicious. We decided to drink only local wine. Good decision. I can thoroughly recommend both the Lugana and the Bardolino Chiaretta. We finished the evenings off with either a Lemonchello or a Grappa. Perfect. We started with a drink that seems to be all the rage at the moment. An Aperol Spritzer or something called a Hugo. Very refreshing.
The staff were all couteous, charming and efficient. We were treated to a very well oiled machine in action. We were looked after excellently from day-break to turn-in time.
The rooms were functional but well appointed and spotlessly clean. With proper toilets. Our room had a bath and a shower, as well as air-contitioning. Very necessary as at one point during our stay the outside temperature nudged 40C!
The hotel has it's own private beach and swimming pool, along with a jacuzzi in the pool. It had it's own landing stage in the lake. I regularly swam in the lake and the pool.
Sirmione Town itself is charming and olde-worlde. We did the Grotto di Catuldo, and the Thermal Baths, as well as an area called "Secret Sirmione".
Excursions to recommend, we did the tour round the northern end of the lake, as well as the tour of the Dolomite Mountains. The latter I thoroughly recommend.
