We have just returned from this lovely hotel, in a beautiful area of Italy.
Hotel is very clean throughout, and all staff are very friendly, always wishing you a Good Morning or Good Evening.
The breakfasts are buffet style, and there is an outdoor terrace too. Plenty of choice for everything, nice breads, brioches, cold meats, cheeses, breakfast cereals, yogurts, fresh and tinned fruit, various flavour of tea bags, different types of coffee from machine, gluten free biscuits and cereals too.
The 5 course evening meal is waiter service for the appetizer, second and third courses and the salad and desserts are buffet style.
There is one appetizer, and 3 choices of second and 3 choices of third course, so the food is very fresh with the best of ingredients used. The restaurant staff are wonderful, and may offer an alternative if one of the dishes is not to your liking.
We were in the Augustus building, which is separate from the main building, but only a few minutes walk. We had a ground floor room with a huge terrace which looked on to a grassy area and was very private. In the bedrooms, there are bathrobes, slippers, pool towels and they even provide umbrellas. Most public areas of the hotel have umbrellas for guests to use, as this area of Italy is prone to sudden rain showers.
The hotel is set back from the main road, but you have to cross this to get to the lakeside paths. There is a crossing, but the cars won't stop unless you are actually on the crossing. Also, there are no pavements with a kerb, just a walking area at the side of the road with a yellow painted line separating pedestrians from the traffic.
We walked to Bardolino, and we did this in about 15 mins, but it's nice to take your time and enjoy the lake. The only downside of this walk, is that it is also a cycle path and it can get busy with both cyclists and pedestrians.
We walked in the other direction to Cisano, under 10 mins, but it consists of mostly restaurants and cafes. The next town after this is Lasize, which took us about 50 mins along the lakeside path. Lasize is a lovely little town within the walls of the castle. Again, you are trying to avoid the cyclists.
We took an all day bus tour, arranged through the rep, taking in the different towns on lake Garda. This included a ferry trip from Limone to Riva, and was good value for money.
This area of Italy is very unspoiled, not commercialised at all and we would love to go back.
