“Fantastic Hotel”
Reviewed 21 March 2008

We stayed at the Hotel Bellevue the first week of March this year.Franco made our stay a delight .He advised me where to go for great photo shots and also advised my wife where to go shopping.Franco and his staff could not have been more helpful.

The apartment beside the hotel where we stayed in was very clean and the location was perfect.

We are looking forward to going back there real soon.
Thank you Franco and your staff for a great time.

My Husband and I stayed in the Bellevue last August and can't wait to go back again. We had arranged our wedding in a nearby villa and 30 or more of our wedding guests also stayed at the hotel. We didn't have one complaint from any of our family or friends about the hotel. The staff and owners went out of their way to help us, especially Katia on reception.
Breakfasts were basic but adequate, evening meals were good and service excellent.
The hotel rooms were a 3 -4 star quality by Italian standerds but very good value as the location was excellent and were cleaned to a high standard every day. The gardens and swimming pool were an huge bonus which we definatly made the most out of as there's nowhere in Gardone to swim in the lake. We also used the two apartments which were separete from the hotel. They were a bit dark and could do with a revamp but adequate. They were very reasonabily priced.
We are definately going back there again. Most of the other hotels in Gardone are very, very expensive and not worth the money.We can't thank Sigour Pizzi and his staff enough for making our wedding and week in Lake Garda so memorable.

My wife, daughter and I have just returned from staying in one of the separate apartments situated close to the hotel and in its grounds. Everything was as the web site, although the website gave the impression the aprtments were below the hotel (as if they were on the ground floor), they are in fact in a separate building about 20 yards away.
We arrived late but were welcomed cordially by name and shown to apartments without any fuss. The apartment consisted of a good size living/dining room with small satellite TV (nearly all German stations), 4 ring hotplate, fridge/freezer and plenty of storage space with cooking utensils etc. There was no oven, not that we needed one during a hot week.
The bedroom contained a kingsize bed and a single. There was also a large sofa bed in the living room. The bathroom was typical Italian, ie shower only with toilet, sink and bidet, not unduly cramped by Italian standards. We did have to ask for a change of towels during the week, as I expect this is not automatic for apartment users.
Because the rooms were tiled, double glazed and shuttered the room remained quite cool all day. The only slight drawback is that the aprtments overlook the main lakeside road, but I am a light sleeper and was only bothered for 2 out of 7 nights.
The family who run the hotel were always on hand, friendly and very attentive. Apartment users have full use of the hotel facilities inc pool , terrace, restaurant etc, although you would need to order breakfast the day before for them to cater properly.
The position and outside appearance of the hotel is excellent and the apartments are fully recommended.
Gardone itself is fairly quiet and the other hotels nearby are 4 and 5star, so the Belle Vue is a great value compromise. Salo is also only about 3 miles away with plenty of facilities and shops without overdoing things.

We found this a good 3 star hotel and had a relaxing break in July 2005. We stayed on a Bed and Breakfast basis, however ate at the hotel on 2 evenings and found the food very good - as good if not better than anything we ate in Gardone itself. It is about 15 minute walk to the town centre and ferry point, but this stroll is along a lovely promenade. Our room looked a little dated, but had a lovely bathroom, good view of the lake and was clean. The owners were very friendly - nothing was too much trouble, and they would share a drink with guests on the terrace on an evening. Lake Garda is a lovely spot but if were coming back we may choose to stay in Limone or Malcesine which seemed as if they had a bit more going on than Gardone. However, if we did return to Gardone we would stay at the Belle Vue without hesitation.

We should have listened to the reviewer who said the hotel was old and musty! Not a very nice way to spend a vacation. My husband and I were extremely disappointed in the accomodations, service and food. After 2 nights, we left and found other accomodations ON the lake.

We had an absolutely lovely time at the Belle Vue. It is just as the photos describe it and the family owners couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The only downside was that the evening dinner was only served between 7.30 & 8.30 and then the terrace was cleared as quickly as possible with the doors locked at 11.00pm. It would have been lovely to have sat out under the umberellas on the terrace having a drink or two without getting the feeling that you were stopping the staff going home.

I don't know about the other reviewer but this hotel is no more than 2-star quality. It does have a great view so if you want to SEE the lake, book this hotel.

However, our room and bathroom was very old and musty, the food was only average. We too selected half board and the breakfast was served on the terrace. Food was only adequate.

We didn't know it was a family business as the front desk was "business-like" and not especially warm or helpful.

We visited in June 2004 and saw other hotel accomodations around the lake that we would have preferred. We will not return to this establishment.
