“A long walk to the town”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

The rooms are rather small all have a balcony the chairs provided are metal and hard to sit on would be much nicer if cushions were provided. During our week stay there was a continual problem at breakfast with bread, the hot food and fruit running out I had to ask several times for more bread. The service was poor staff seemed more interested in setting the tables for the next meal than serving customers with coffee etc. The evening meals were OK but the buffet held on the Thursday evening was very good. The walk into the town is a good 20 minutes unless you are a fast walker, most of the route is on a main road and not as expected along the lakeside. Everything shuts down at 1230 and does not open again until 1530. This area gets very busy at weekends when local Italians come down, but the rest of the week the town is extremely quiet. The season here only really starts from 14th July until end of August. This meant that during our stay many of the ferry trips were not operating.

Room Tip: To have sun on your balcony all day choose the rooms over looking the mountains and not the garden.

This is an okay hotel in a nice location, but it does not quite deserve its four stars: The service is lousy, the wifi is terrible, and the lay-out of the shower is bad (in the suite at that!). Overpriced.

Some parts of this hotel maybe could do with a face lift, i.e. the wooden balcony floor outside our room had seen better days, but overall the interior is comfortable, clean and spacious. The rooms are not massive but well appointed and clean.
Buffet breakfast is excellent with plenty of choice and the half board dinner choices are more than adequate. Service is friendly and typically 'Italian' with ample time between courses. You must remember that this is Italy and although standards are normally high - their ideas of what is acceptable may be different to yours, i.e. one Italian family were allowed to bring a small dog into the dining room one evening, which to us seemed rather odd. The rooms are air conditioned but it took us a while to realise that the receptionist controls the temperature from her console no matter what you set the system to in the room - so again ask if its too hot or cold.
It does look a bit like a row of 'Butlins' chalets from brochure photographs, but don't be put off by this aspect. As many other reviewers have said it is out of town (some 15/20 minutes walk into Iseo town), but there is a free shuttle bus from the hotel if you ask for it.
We would suggest that you do need to be able to walk (or enjoy walking) if you stay here as the hotel is next to a very large area of wetland nature reserve which is well worth a visit (take binoculars or borrow from visitor centre at weekends).
Iseo is where Italians go for their holidays and as such is slightly off the beaten track for English speaking tourists, although that is changing, but be prepared to accept the Italian way of life (or go somewhere else maybe) and expect that not everyone speaks English. After all that is what makes the area so attractive.

Room Tip: Views from the back or front are much the same, but those overlooking the gardens at the rear offer...

I am sure this used to be a very nice hotel, but to be frank it has seen better days. The pool area, terrace and outdoor area all need a serious workover, where is the garderer, the staff for the outdoor facilities and the same goes for the Lido area, really need some serious work done all over the place. My terrasse floor is rotten, we need to be careful not to fall down. Mind you, the summer season has already started including a public holiday today. Breakfast is good though...

I stayed only for a couple of nights but I've only got nice words to spend on this one. The whole hotel is a bit old style I guess, but I prefer it by far to more modern and minimalistic one, that often are too cold. So yes, welcoming lake style big hotel, room very clean, shower fairly big. Sky in the room with international channels as well. Nice little terrace with enough room for table, chairs and sun chair. huge wardrobe with mini bar in it. It was mid may and the swimming pool was not really in use but it looked well nice. Didn't have a chance to see the spa or the tennis ground. The bar seems nice but it's very tiny. Good breakfast, all the essentials were there inclunding a good choice of warm food and fresh fruit.

Stayed there for one night as guest of my client on a business trip. Small hit neat and excellent staff. Near the lake and a good spa . The wi fi in the rooms is an issue but works very well in the lobby. Over all good.

It was the third time I stayed in this hotel... and yes, it is winter, and I stayed only one night this time while passing through on a business trip. Got an excellent deal on the price since the hotel was booked by a business partner who has an agreement with the hotel. As it is out of the peak season, it is noticeable that the hotel slows down on services...

POSITIVE POINTS:
It really is a charming little hotel, with a special feel to it from the moment you arrive. It gives you a typical and traditional experience, with a touch of comfort and tranquility. Of course, being in a place like Iseo... this sensation is amplified... since if this hotel was elsewhere... it would be boring.

The rooms are relatively well maintained, and the view from my room terrace overlooking the back garden is amazing, and truly peaceful.

The bed is comfortable, as are the pillows, allowing for a good night's sleep.

Walking around the hotel area... both inside and outside really is great. It is a pleasure to walk outside in the back garden, feeling the tranquility of this place.

Intenet was free in all areas, and worked perfectly during the stay.

And yes... the staff is really friendly, and gives great tips on where to eat, what to do and how to get around.

Once again... being in this area... it is great to walk to the town center (about 15 minute walk), where the choices for restaurants and bars are ample.

NEGATIVE POINTS:
Room (although comfortable) is relatively small, and "cramped" both in the room and in the bathroom.

Breakfast was really poor and disapointing, with very limited choices. The restaurant was closed, although there is one just 30 meters away in the same complex.

Sad was also the fact that the bar closed early... around 22H00.

I know it is winter, and it is off-season... and this affects the way that the hotel works, but it would have felt nicer if these smaller points were simply ironed out.

SUMMING UP:
This really is a nice hotel... and Iseo really is a fantastic place in Italy. Like I said above, this hotel is charming - simply because it is in Iseo. You ask me if I would come back... and the answer is YES, and hopefully out of the winter period where service becomes better :-)
