Hotel Excelsior le Terrazze
Ranked #2 of 48 Hotels in Garda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 August 2014

My husband and I have recently spent a week at the Hotel Excelsior Le Terrazze. The hotel is well situated with easy access to Garda town where you can catch a boat to visit the neighbouring towns. The hotel gives an excellent service and the food is so good that we will never forget the excellent banquet served on Friday night. Well done to all staff without forgetting the chef.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quiet but no views on the lake.

We've just returned after visiting for the second time. Everything was excellent, we particularly enjoy breakfast overlooking the lake. Vito and his team gave exceptional service, friendly, and efficient, nothing was too much trouble. Location is excellent, close to the ferry port where the boats run to time. The town of Garda is lovely, lots of shops and vibrant café style nightlife.

Room Tip: We booked a side lake view room which was excellent. If you want a lake view room you'll need t...

My husband and myself recently spent two weeks at the hotel excelsior terrazze.it is a well located hotel only a short walk to the ferry port and the hotel staff especially Vito and the dining room staff
were always smiling and helpful. The authentic Italian cuisine is just fabulous with plenty of choice for everyone.the hotel is clean and welcoming. The downside for us was the approach to the hotel which is described as a slight incline but which is actually quite steep, my husband has only slight mobility problems but really struggled as did several other guests we spoke to.we had a large bedroom but there was very little storage space, no drawers or cupboards and only an average size wardrobe half of which was given over to shelving resulting in a lot of our clothes staying in our suitcase and I spent a lot of my holiday ironing as hanging space in the wardrobe was minimal and certainly not enough for two people staying for two weeks.
We did enjoy our holiday but suggest the bedrooms could do with an update.

My wife and I stayed for one week from the 27th of July and couldn't have been more impressed. We had stayed over in Verona for one night prior and caught the bus down to Garda the next morning. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the bus station, 5 minutes from the ferry port and the same from the bars and restaurants. It looked further on the maps when we were planning but it really is the perfect distance from everything.

We arrived around 10am Sunday morning and although check in is not till 2pm I believe, the receptionist was very helpful and arranged to have our room ready within the hour. We had decided to pick a standard room as we didn't intend on spending any time in the room really, especially with the lovely pool area to lounge around. The room was very nice, wonderfully clean and although it was on the small side (which we knew), it served our purpose well. Without the pool area we would have gone for a room with a balcony.

Normally we wouldn't go Half-Board but as the cost difference was relatively small we figured we'd give it ago. Most nights it's a four course menu with a salad buffet, starter, main and dessert buffet but they did have one night which was a 7 course taster menu - interesting. The food is simply out of this world. Amazing flavours, great portion size and a good selection to choose from. I would heartily recommend you eat at the hotel at least once. We ate in every night and were not disappointed once. The service is sublime. The Maitre d', Vito and his group of waitresses are incredibly effiecient, friendly and helpful. I don't think I could praise them highly enough. Also, don't miss afternoon tea between 4 and 5 pm. They put out tea and coffe making facilities and a selection of cakes/biscuits. The drinks prices were very reasonable for a hotel as well.

Breakfast on the terrace was also a nice experience. There's a good selection of cereals, fruit, yogurts and a small amount of cooked items.

Check out was easy which is always good. They even have a courtesy bathroom you can use which has a shower.

Overall I can see why this hotel is Number 1 in Garda. It's an absolute gem and if we ever head back that way I'll have no hesitation in staying there again.

We chose this hotel simply because it was #1 in Garda, we were not disappointed. We booked a third floor room over looking the lake which gave us a fantastic view. The room and the entire hotel was spotlessly clean. We had some trouble with the aircon on day one but it was sorted out quickly. The pool area was well laid out and there were plenty of sun beds available. Food was great, we were B&B but chose the banquet (tasting menu) one night which was really nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking was fine if you are a confident driver and the main resort is only a short (5 min) walk away as is the ferry terminal. I don't really have anything negative to say about our stay which is unusual.

Room Tip: The best rooms are the ones at the front of the hotel overlooking the pool. I think there is a suite...

Our Wedding Week! My husband, Daughter and Myself had a blast. The Hotel Excelsior in Garda was more than we had expected and could not prays the staff enough. Travelling with a child under two for the first time had us very worried how she would take to things. On our arrival the staff went over and beyond to make sure we were well comfortable especially our daughter Emma. She had a playpen cot that is bigger than the ones here in Ireland with a toy printed blanket and toddler pillow. Each morning the high chair was waiting for Emma's arrival. Each time Emma would walk anywhere in the hotel staff where playing with her etc. We had the biggest room in the hotel and our wedding guests stayed as well and all rooms are well catered for. The top four rooms have balcony's that wrap around the building , hints all sharing the wrap around balcony but broken up with large flower pots and sun loungers for each room. The food was lovely, however we did eat in garda every evening as such a choice of restaurants. It is a 5 min walk to the town by road and then Lake Shore which gave our daughter time to nap in her buggy etc. One thing to bear in mind is that the temperatures in May are still cold to them so no air-con turned on. We really loved this place and made our Wedding in Garda very special, we will be returning here in the not so distance future.

Room Tip: Front Lake view rooms will be the best and higher the better

We couldn't have asked for a better hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful without being overbearing, and the rooms are kept immaculately clean. We went half-board, although we did eat in the hotel restaurant one night. For 18 euros, you get a superb four course meal. The quality of the food was outstanding, although I would recommend going half-board so that you can try out all of the fantastic local restaurants around the town. The hotel itself is a two minute walk from the central hub of Garda and boasts phenomenal views over the lake. It was brilliant sitting on the terrace during breakfast and admiring the views, or swimming in the pool and being able to look out at the scenery at the same time!

The hotel offers direct transfers for a reasonable price to and from Verona airport. This was a friendly and hassle-free service which I would highly recommend.

Garda itself is a wonderful town with easy access points to towns and cities all around the lake. Being a stone's throw from town means you have no excuse not to go exploring! We will definitely be coming back again.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, I recommend getting an upgrade from a standard room, and ideally find a room w...
