Just stayed for 5 days at the hotel as a 30th wedding anniversary. The hotel has lots of reviews. Our view was, that the hotel was spotless. The rooms although a little small were cleaned everyday, with fresh towels. The bathroom has a good sized shower. By the way we stayed on the 3rd floor room 302 on the front over looking the superb views of the lake. The hotel serves a continental breakfast each morning with the usual meat, cheese, yogurt, cereal etc. Just helped yourself. The position of the hotel is right on the lake, so really romantic. Around the hotel are bars and restaurants. We found the food at both Emelianos and Wimmer really good. Both varied in price between 40 euros and 50 euros. Pizzas seemed to be the biggest part on most restaurants pages, starting at 4 euros up to 1o/12 euros. Beware they are usually massive 14-16" size.The bar at the back of the square and right next door were really good. Beer was about 5 euros. Wine in the restaurants varied from the house white/red for 6 euros for a 1/2 ltr- 10 euros for 1 ltr. There are plenty of sights to see, and if you enjoy a walk, Salo is about 2.5 miles, and Maderno is 3.5 miles in the other direction. We decided to walk one day to San Michelle. It is all village at the top of the mountain (serious walk) about 5 mile up. Got there, sweating buckets 2 restaurants. 1 was shut the other said no beer (ran out) I think he understood my english. Really not worth the walk, but the views brill. Botanical gardens are 5 mins away, if you are into that sort of thing. The trips on the lake are a little expensive. We went to Sirmione taking the slow boat out for the sights which takes 2hrs, and the fast boat back 1hr. It cost 45 euros. The other trips vary between 27-37 euros each. It takes about 1hr-1.5hrs to get to the hotel. This was the expensive bit. Holiday firm wanted £287, the taxi (book before you get there) was £215, and a car is around £150 All in all, I would recommend the hotel for cleanliness and positioning. There are no banging bars, and it is very quiet when you want to get to sleep. Romantic and relaxing I think would sum it up.
