“Hunted by the waitress for a 2€ bottle!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2012

I paid 2€ for a water bottle at the bar of "Rifugio Lago Nambino". Then I left. When I was 200m from the bar, I was "hunted" by the waitress because she was sure I didn't pay for the water bottle. I assured her I had paid my bottle but she accused me that it was not true. I came back with her and she saw the 2€ coin on the plate in front of the cash machine. No excuse by the waitress nor by the people of the bar.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

I highly recommend this place. In our experience everything was perfect. The location is the best if you, like us, are looking for peace, quiet and amazing scenery! The rifugio is on the bank of a delightful little lake and you feel like you are hundred of miles away from everything and everyone! so secluded! the staff is extremely friendly and our hostess, Luisa, apart from being very kind and welcoming was also a precious source of information! The rifugio is a mixture of modern comforts and old style trentino design. Our room was comfortable; bathroom was a definite plus! clean and recently redone. water pressure is always good (mornings / afternoon / evenings) and temperature also perfect. Our meals were excellent (we spent 3 nights there); breakfast were good and dinners were even better!

Room Tip: our room was "Rododendro" (all rooms are named after flowers). it was comfy and silent. Bo...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2011

Don't understand the last review - we found the owners exceptionally friendly and the food excellent. The setting is lovely, starting with a drive up a snowy track to a small car park, then the fun of having an electrically operated metal basket sent down a small cablecar arrangement through the trees to collect our bags, after which a half hour walk up a steepish path through the snow to the rifugio and a very friendly welcome.

The building has been refurbished and is very nicely done, with modern flooring and lighting combined with a traditional wooden structure. The setting is by a lake in a very isolated spot, with walking and fishing in the summer (the rifugio is only open Fri-Sun in winter). Dinner was a full Italian meal including trout from the lake - and the place was heaving with Italians who had walked in for the evening and were making the walk back again through the snow afterwards with their torches - and they wouldn't do that if the food was no good! We thought it was great.

It having snowed heavily overnight, we were then lent snowshoes for the walk out - another bit of fun. Others with more time were taking longer snowshoe walks in the surroundings.

All in all, a great place and definitely something different - happy to recommend.

I thoroughly recommend this place. The setting is excellent, the food some of the best we had in the area and all in all it was thoroughly worth the cost.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2009

The Rifugio is located about 30 mins walk from Madonna di Campiglio but the walk is well worth it. The setting, particularly when snowy, is just incredible. The lodge sits on the edge of the lake and the walk there is through a beautiful forest and then along the side of the lake. Bags can be transported via their little funicular on request. The rooms are all beautifully done in wood and are very modern. No TVs but that would ruin the ambience.

The food is excellent although a bit more Speck would have been appreciated at breakfast! The owners/staff are all very helpful and friendly and can organise snow shoe tours on request. Howeverthe tour we went on was all just downhill from the top of the cable car (5 Laghi) which was disappointing!

A lot of people would hike up on snow shoes in the evening for dinner, and we were the only non Italians there which is probably testament to the good quality.

The scenery around Madonna di Campiglio is spectacular and the village itself is quite attractive and fun for people watching. La Cascina Zeledria on the ski resort (Campo Carlo Magno) is excellent.
