Reviewed 17 June 2010

My husband and i have just returned from 11 nights staying at this wonderful hotel. This was our 1st trip to Lake Garda and we were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary. Everywhere in the hotel is clean and well maintained. Roberto,his family and all his staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a lovely balcony room to the front with views over the lake. Great breakfast every morning on the terrace. The walk into Malcesine took about 20 mins but wasn't a hardship when walking along the lakeside promenade.The scenery was absolutely stunning. There is also a tourist bus every hour for 1 euro that took you into the centre. We would have no hesitation in returning and would definately want to stay at this hotel.We booked for this trip based purely on the comments on this site and so pleased we did.

everything about this hotel was both classy and homely. the staff from the cleaning ladies to the management were courteous and helpful. nothing was too much trouble for them. advice on trips or where to dine were very good. the facilities were very good-- in fact my wife and i couldn't fault anything.we felt totally relaxed and wished that we could have stayed longer. the area around the hotel is beautiful and surprisingly, in early June , Lake Garda was warm enough to swim in.

Where do I start? Firstly Roberto, Marisa and Rosie made us feel so at home. The rooms & hotel in general are spotless. The buffet breakfast, has fresh fruit, hams, cheese cereal all you would expect. The pool area has fantastic views of the mountains & is perfect to relax by. Atruro the guard dog is adorable & so friendly. We were getting married in Malcesine & on the morning of the wedding Marissa brought a bottle of champagne to the room to help calm the nerves! The hotel is in a fantastic location, only a beautiful 20minute walk into Malcesine along t he lake front. The scenery is mind blowing, with little restaurants and bars along the way. Also a play area for kids. You won't be disappointed if you stay at the Benacus if you want to relax and unwind and enjoy the beautiful Italian country side. What you see on the Benacus website is exactly what you get. So happy we decided t o stay there for our wedding & hope to return again someday soon:-)

My wife and i have just returned from a week at Hotel Benacus and i really must reiterate the positive comments previoulsy posted about this hotel. Roberto and his sister, Marissa, who run the hotel are very friendly and go out of their way to assist - even helping when we had a problem with our return flight arrangements. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean, the continental breakfast is plentiful with a good selection of breads,hams,cheeses, cereals, juices etc etc. Our room at the front of the hotel was comfortable had a large balcony. All though we spent little time around the pool area ,the garden was colourful and well maintained. however, there is noise from passing traffic. Its about a 25 minute leisurely stroll into malcesine from the hotel - 20 mins of which is along the wide lakeside path - we enjoyed this scenic walk everytime. Would definately recommend this hotel - well run,good value.friendly wht more can you ask. will put other bits and bobs about things to do etc on later post.

We stayed here for several nights on our honeymoon. Roberto had provided us with advice before we arrived on traveling to the hotel. We arrived late (around 10pm) and dehydrated and were given complimentary mineral water. We were put on the top floor (5th?) looking over the road and the lake with a balcony. We didn;t notice any noise (and I'm a light sleeper). Roberto offered us a free bottle of presecco as it was our honeymoon, and always helped out with guidance on where to go to make the most of the area (maps of the town, suggestions on great resturants).

The pool was clean and great to lounge by, and it was about a 15 min walk to get into Malcesine along the lake. Very romantic, but could be a bit far for young families. The hotel is about a 5 min walk to the lake, and also close to various shops. They really cared about customers. Oh, and I almost forgot..we wanted to kidnap their 'guard dog' Alturo, a gorgeous golden lab!

Having planned 4 days in Venice we wanted somewhere more relaxing to enjoy some countryside.

I selected Hotel Benacus because of the reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. Although the Hotel is on the main road with the shutters closed and the AC on a good night's sleep was no problem.

The staff at this Hotel are wonderful, friendly and helpful which probably comes from being family run.

The walk along the lakeside into town is really lovely and in fact quite relaxing. It's just a shame about the last uphill stretch on the way back. There's always the Tourist Bus which was most reliable.
