This was our 5th visit to the hotel and it was as enjoyable as ever. The staff and family who run the hotel could not be more helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are all spotless, we have now stayed in 3 different rooms and have enjoyed them all. for the last 2 years we have stayed in a garden room which is right next to the pool so if you like to be able to just pop in and out of your room it is ideal.
The views over the lake are spectacular you can spend hours just watching the ferries going past. There are lots of good local restaurants,our favourite is up in the hills above Gardone which if walking to requires quite a lot of stamina but once there it is well worth the walk and coming back downhill is easy.
The ferries run regularly to all over the lake and there are so many different places to visit all round the lake, the buses are also a good way of getting around. We have always hired a car but you can get around quite easily without one and the lake road does get extremely busy particularly the weekends.
I would recommend the hotel for all ages although people with mobility problems may find it hard to get up and down to the pool if staying in the main hotel. Even though the last two years have just been myself and husband we have had 3 holidays there with our children who have loved it as much as us.
