“Beauty on Lake Bolsena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

The hotel was right on the shore of Lake Bolsena. The hotel was very nicely decorated and clean. The pool area was gorgeous. The pool was surrounded by hydrangea plants in full bloom with wonderful statues interspersed among the plants. The area was beautiful and well maintained. The hotel has free parking and actually wi-fi networks were abundant so there was no charge for usage. The city and restaurants were all in walking distance and it was an oasis of calm and beauty.

Room Tip: Facing the garden

We had no reason to choose to go to Bolsena other than it is on a lake. What a find. Bolsena is a beautifully quaint town with a mix of medieval and provincale. The lake is gorgeous ad the hydrangeas in the gardens throughout the town are a sight to be seen. From the moment we saw the Hotel we knew we were going to love it. From the antique furniture to the welcoming staff it definitely lived up to it's 4 star rating. Our room had plenty of space to move around and store luggage, a pretty comfy bed for Italian standards and our window opened up to a front view of the lake and the tiny port. Breakfast was excellent and to top it all off the pool was immaculately kept. At 85Euro it was a bargin. Would definitely recommend at least 2 days in this hotel. We would like to go back for a week.

Room Tip: GO for the superior. It's worth it

So peaceful yet busy. An active city, cycling, running And walking. Great history and activities. The hotel has a great pool, Aircon, on the water and fantastic value. A wonderful treat after terrible beds, staff are attentive and speak English.
Worth a drive to visit the lake.

We are just back from two days by Lake Bolsena, staying in the lovely Hotel Royal.
It was so relaxing we feel as though we have been away for a weeks holiday.
The Hotel Royal has the best position of all the Lake Bolsena hotels, it is situated right on the lakeside, yet only a few minutes walk into the historical centre of Bolsena town.
The staff could not be more polite and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Simone was especially kind, and he made us feel so very welcome that we have decided to return again in August.
The pool is gorgeous, I could happily have spent my whole trip swimming and sunbathing ( on the very comfortable sunbeds)
There are plenty of places to eat at the Lake and the Hotel itself had a very nice restaurant.
Breakfast was simple but ample, and the coffee was fabulous.
There is masses of secure, on site parking at the rear of the hotel
We look forward to our next trip

The town of Bolsena is one fantastic spot for summer time visitors. Located directly on Ledo di Bolsena this very well managed hotel has everything and more, - spacious and comfortable rooms with ample of closeting and storage space. They offer a good quality breakfast with extended morning hours.
The hotel’s free parking is spacious and provides for a gated security system, lovely swimming pool and very accommodating staff. We had an excellent stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter.... There are plenty of camping activities on the lake.... It ge...

We stayed at the Hotel Royal in early June. Our room (#309) had a spectacular terrace looking out to the lake and was comfortable and well furnished. This is the hotel to stay at in Bolsena -- perfectly located and well run, with excellent rates, an ample breakfast buffet, free secure parking, a lovely outdoor pool, and very friendly staff. When we were there, summer crowds had not yet arrived, leaving this lovely gem of a lakeside town shining in the sun, with fountains and beautiful roses and jasmine and an inviting beach. We had two wonderful meals in the restaurants right on the water (especially at the Trattoria Da Guido -- an amazing fish antipasto and fresh lake fish), and just wished we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony and lake view, if possible. Our room (#309), has a huge terrace.

Hotel is very well appointed right opposite the lake - rooms of high quality and kept very well indeed. Would love to recommend to others for position and value for money. Ideal for exploring. Staff very helpful. Last year we stayed by the beautiful pool, but this year the weather was poor and it wasn't open - great shame. Will be visiting again next year. Quiet and restful place - we had a wonderful time.

Stayed May 2013, travelled with friends
