Location of this hotel couldn't be better. Our room was excellent, big, modern, walk in wardrobe - impressive. However relatives with us has a cramped old fashioned room. Hardly room to walk around the bed. Obviously great difference between the rooms. I'm giving the rating as Very Good because of our room and the location but certainly wouldn't give that rating if we had had the room my relatives were in.
We were on holiday with Newmarket and had dining room on side of hotel which was cramped to say the least, once you were in your seat it was hard to get out of it it somebody sitting behind you! The food was okay, edible and I didn't particularly have a problem with it but others did. It could have been better and the service wasn't great although the staff were very nice Breakfast - the eggs were good on the first day and after that unedible - yolks hard and white not cooked, dont know how they managed that perhaps they were microwaved. If you weren't down early they would run out of toast and croissants. The coffee was never hot enough but you certainly won't starve. Dinner - salad every night, starters were okay and main meal was okay, dessert good. Only there for 3 nights, we ate out on the third night and had a big steak! The staff in the Geier were all very friendly.
Stayed for 3 nights and then travelled to Austria with Newmarket. Wouldn't use an escorted company like Newmarket generally but it seemed an easier option as we were going from Italy to Austria. I certainly wouldn't do it if just going to Italy as we were not going on the organised trips. We went to Limone and Riva del Garda on the ferry. Both lovely places, had lunch overlooking lake on Riva which was fab. Weather was lovely, had been raining for days apparently before we arrived.
If you have already booked this hotel don't worry it is worth it for the location and if you are not happy with your room I would complain as there are better rooms.
