“Great hotel”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

What a lovely hotel! It is in a great location and very close to the lake. The staff are really welcoming and friendly. The room was very modern and of a very high standard. The breakfast was great and a really good selection of items to choose from. The free parking is also a huge positive. Overall, we had a great experience and I would definitely recommend this hotel and Torbole itself. There is a lot to do in Torbole ( especially if you want an active trip) and a great base to see Lake Garda.

I couldn't find the hotel restaurant in the list of Torbole restaurants so I'm writing the review here. We had dinners in many Torbole restaurants, but this was one of the best. We had to wait for 20 minutes to get a table in the evening but it was definitely worth it.
The restaurant is nicely located in the middle of the old village, which has great atmosphere in the evenings. They offer a wide range of meals and all the food we had was very tasty (carpaccio, pizza, spinach dumplings, spaghetti), the local "vino de la casa" (home wine) was nice as well, they even had (apart from normal wheat beer on tap) non-alcoholic wheat beer. And the macchiato at the end was the best! When paying we got small delicious desserts...The staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely will go again!

the hotel is very well located. the pizzeria in the hotel is one of the best in the region. Think of making a reservation as it is rather busy there.
rooms are ok, not expensive, just the parking is a bit uncomfortable and there is no separate bike storage room.
Hotel rooms clean and enough for whet you pay! .
The stuff very friendly.

This review refers to just the restaurant, unfortunately I was staying at another hotel.
I chanced on the Hotel Cenrtale on my first night in Torbole when out researching where to eat during my weeks stay. I expected to eat at several restaurants during the week, I did not. The menu at the Centrale was such that I did not need to find anywhere else, I ate there every night. Some say that Italian food is all pasta and pizza, not at the Centrale, during my 6 dinners I ate pasta once as a starter and no pizza ,such was the choice of other excellent Italian food. The service was first rate, the staff friendly and informed and couldn't do enough for you, the wines, different one each night, excellent, the deserts to die for. A Dutch couple I chatted to had been going there for over 10 years. I cannot commend this restaurant highly enough.

I enjoyed staying here. It was ideally located in what appeared to be the main piazza of Torbole-sul-Garda. The staff were friendly and only too happy to accommodate our mixed dietary requirements. At breakfast there was a menu which had two starters, two main courses and a dessert which allowed us to chose what we wanted to eat. The food was very nice although there was a distinct lack of veg on the plate and I think that's because we didn't realise that we needed to mark the veg option on the menu. The hotel is also a bar/restaurant and is open to the public.

The rooms were more than adequate - they just needed money spending on them although having said that there were a few unidentified stains on the bedding.

There isn't much to Torbole a few streets with a couple of restaurants and the Windsurf bar appeared to be the only lively place in the town which actually made it ideal as a place to relax. The hotel is only minutes from the lake shore, although you do have to cross a busy road and the Italians drive like maniacs so be careful when crossing. At night there were people feeding the ducks and swans. The swans were even taking food from your hand. Word of warning you may want to douse yourself in insect repellent before going down to lake shore at night. It is also a good base for touring around the lake with the biggish towns of Garda and Sirmione within an hours drive from the hotel.

Interesting fact [for some anyway] one of the tunnels coming into Torbole-sul-Garda was used in the opening car chase scene in the latest James Bond movie 'Quantum of Solace'.

This was for our 3rd wedding anniversary, and my wife's birthday celebrations. We did not let this aweful hotel and it's staff ruin a weeks holiday for us, we stayed out of the hotel as much as possible on tours and eating out in the many spendid restaurants and bars in the wonderful location that the Hotel is fortunately situated. If the hotel was in any other location it would be closed, the location and passing trade keep it open. Italian Getaways was our travel agent and they did everything they could to make the holiday stress free, tours, transfers and reps great. They should have a word with the management of this hotel though. Brian from Rochdale

Stayed at the Centrale for a week. Wish it had been longer. The staff are excellent and are only too happy to help. The hotel is spotless and the rooms are very comfortable. They have a bar/restaurant/gelateria which serves some of the most delicious food I've tasted and it's very reasonably priced. (We stayed on a B&B basis). Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Will definately go back some time.

  • Liked — Location/cleanliness
  • Disliked — there was nothing really wrong
  • Tips/Secrets — bus/boat acess is reasonably good. Excellent footpath between Torbole & Riva.
