Parc Hotel Gritti
Ranked #22 of 43 Hotels in Bardolino
Reviewed 9 January 2014

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.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the refurbished rooms, they have greatly increased the quality. I would not worry too...

Our late holiday booking with Thomson Lakes didn't allow us a wide choice of hotel so we took pot luck with the Gritti. Its a spacious 260 bedroom hotel set in attractive grounds by the shoreline of Lake Garda within 10 minutes board walking distance from Bardolino town. We stayed for 6 nights in a comfortable room overlooking a dense forest of trees (that limited the natural light entering the room) with a balcony patio that, unfortunately, was located over the kitchens!. For a couple of nights this was a problem. After a Saturday wedding reception the kitchens were very noisy clearing up till about 2am and, on another night, a couple of teenagers chatted noisily on the adjoining balcony until about 3 am at which time we made a request to the manager to quieten them down! Yes, we could have asked to be relocated but apart from these two occasions the nights were quiet enough not to warrant the hassle of moving. The reception and dining staff were courteous and attentive but we were less happy with the self-service only restaurants where, due to the huge numbers of guests staying at the hotel, it was a great bun fight, both breakfast and dinner to serve yourself a meal. The quality and variety of cold salad and desert type food was good but they had a problem with limited range of cooked/hot meals. All in all it was a good holiday. Bardolino was excellent, the sun shone and the ferry and bus trips to other parts of the lake were most enjoyable. We would like to go back again but will find a smaller family run hotel next time.

Room Tip: Talking to others it seems rooms facing the lake are lighter and quieter.

We stayed here for 10 days having a great time in Bardolino. The hotel was very good as we had an up-grade to our room. The balcony was a little tatty. Breakfast was good with a wide range of hot & cold food. We did not book for the evening meal and we were glad of that as it looked pretty ordinary to us. The pool bar was not very welcoming & we looked in one evening in the main bar with entertainment & walked straight out. Awful.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a balcony.

Went to this hotel with a bit of trepidation after reading some of the horrible reviews it had been given. After saving hard for a special holiday to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary we were not looking forward to this trip. Well we need not have worried this hotel is lovely. Would recommend an upgrade as the privilege rooms were worth the extra. Beds changed three times in the week,maid service every day and rooms were spotless,food was great with amazing choice. Pool was lovely and sunbeds very plentiful as we sent mid September so that was a bit quieter. Only had entertainment one night but that was no miss as the hotel was well situated for a short walk into town. Would recommend this hotel though don't expect wi-fi throughout as is only available at reception but two computers available to use. All round this was a great hotel with lovely staff and very clean.

Room Tip: Definitely worth upgrading and top floor as well

A few minutes walk to the charming town of Bardolino. Lots of excellent restaurants and pleasant atmosphere especially evenings. Ferry terminal with lots of lovely destinations is close by. Only problem was complex way of linking to WI Fi - gave up eventually as did others we met.
Super size pool always sun beds available in September .probably OK in peak season

Room Tip: A balcony is a good Idea tho not always for the views

At the reception we realized we had made a mistake choosing this hotel..... Unfriendly check in, the Italian staff in hotel were really quite nice the others obviously couldn't be bothered to help. Our room seriously needed a make-over. We had a small dog with us and could be a reason that we had a very old and dingy room! After travelling throughout Europe the last weeks and staying in many hotel from 3- 5 star plus, we found this the biggest disappointment.....
