We stayed at the Mayer for 7 nights in June/July 2014. The hotel is ideally located overlooking Lake Garda, in the heart of the town. The road that runs between the hotel and the water's edge is closed to most traffic after 9pm. We stayed in room 112 which has a large terrace overlooking the lake. The room was large, comfortable and cleaned every day. There was a minibar and tea/coffee making facilities provided. We found the free wifi signal to be weak, but usable, in the room.
The reception staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke good English. They helped us plan local bus journeys, printing off timetables, etc. The breakfast was adequate with a small selection for the cooked breakfast plus toast, pastries, cereals, yogurts, fresh & tinned fruit. We had read the previous poor reviews regarding the restaurant but I think it is now under new management and the dinner we had was excellent - plus, as a guest of the hotel, we got a 10% discount, so I would recommend trying it. We would also recommend trying Ristorante Bagatta alla Lepre and Il Bagattino at which we had excellent dinners.
The hotel is located next to the boats that ferry you over the lake, 2 minutes walk from the bus stops and it is about a 15-20 minute walk up-hill to the mainline railway station from which you can travel to Verona, Venice, Padua, Brescia, Bergamo, Milan, etc.
In conclusion I would recommend this clean, friendly, well situated hotel.
