I have visited Bardolino for the Festa dell'uva e del vino every October for the last five years. For the three years we have stayed at this Hotel. It is situated at one end of the main lake-front road in Bardolino and is therefore a perfect location to access the festival and the town. It's a five minute walk to the ferry dock. It's around forty minutes to walk to Garda along the lake front, fifteen minutes to Cisano and an hour's walk to Lazise which is well worth a visit.
The hotel has been progressively upgrading its rooms and I thoroughly recommend getting a refurbished one. They are clean and well decorated, excellent bathrooms with robes provided, but shower only, no baths. I found I could get the free wi-fi on my iPad, but for some reason my phone struggled to pick it up in the room. Daily maid service and they provide bottled water daily. Safe and basic mini bar are also provided.
I have not used many of the hotel's facilities. A lot of guests seem to stay half board, but I have only eaten breakfast there, although this is excellent, plentiful and very varied. An ideal preparation for several days of wine tasting!
Also worth noting in relation to the festival and time of year that the hotel tends to turn off the air conditioning during the first week of October (middle of the week after festival weekend) and start to close down the pool bar area around the same time. The pool stays open and is nice and clean.
If you like the hotel and plan to stay more than once or in another Parc hotel, it's also worth getting the Prima Parc club membership which is free as it will get you 10% of your bill in the form of a voucher to redeem again your next Parc hotel stay.
So in summary, great location, clean and friendly hotel which I would recommend as a base, but maybe not as a focus for your holiday.
