This hotel is simply amazing. We booked back in April and stayed for 5 nights in August.
I also emailed the hotel in advance with our flight details and they arranged transfers for us- it was 22 euros per person each way- great value and spot on service.
The reason for our visit was because we had a wedding at the castle in Malcesine. We arrived fairly late on the Saturday evening, and we welcomed immediately and shown to our superior room. Our balcony was on the side of the hotel, so we were not overlooked from either side. The castle was right in front of us and to the other side was Monte Baldo. It was just amazing to look at. We were even offered a snack after asking where we could find something to eat.
The hotel itself is immaculate, the rooms, bar, breakfast room, poolside- all spotless. The gardens are beautiful and surrounded by lovely olive trees. The room had a lovely large wardrobe and safe. The bathroom had a hairdryer too. The views from the balcony and the bar are just stunning, the lake itself is so clear (although a bit cold!) and on an evening you can see the lights twinkling along the mountains.
Breakfast was included and there was plenty of choice each morning.
Although they do not cater for evening meals, they do offer some snacks.
There is also air conditioning in the room that is charged per day.
Directly opposite the entrance to the hotel is the entrance for the Monte Baldo cable car and just a 5 minute walk down the hill to Malcesine centre, which is full of cobbled streets (take more than flip flops!), and traditional Italian bars, shops and restaurants.
This was our first trip to Italy, and I would have no hesitation on returning to this hotel.
