This was a wonderful surprise - lovely hotel right by the lake front on Garda, in the nicest part of town, near the coastal promenada towards Bardelino; beautiful gardens full of exotic plants, and a magnificent tree which privdes cool shade for afternoon tea (complementary) and home-made cake; generous buffet with everything from croissants to local meats (mortadella, salami, cotto, Parma ham, ), cheeses, fruits in syrup, yoghurt, cakes, rolls etc etc: even scrambled egg and bacon for those who want it! Fantastic reception rooms, with tiles floors and comfortable easy chairs, and a lovely terrace from which to watch the world go by. Our bedroom was large, (with an en suite bath), with a flat-screen TV, free Internet (essential for teenager with tablet!) and air conditioning (which we trned off.) but... decor 'tired' with polystyrene tiles on the ceiling (hiding what?) and old-fashioned floral stripe wallpaper, utilitarian Italian furniture and a hideaous lampshade. The whole place could be a luxury hotel with a little redecoration - and a little more friendliness from the receptionist!
A family hotel, but the owners seem not to like their guests very much and we wondered whether this was because we were English, or guests of Crystal? Very strange - but lovely place if a warm welcome is not that imoortant to you!
