“Good 3 Star Hotel in a Great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

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.

Stayed at the Hotel Mayer & Splendid for 4 nights in June and was very impressed, the location is fantastic and the staff very friendly. We just had breakfast at the hotel, good selection for continental. Would highly recommend this hotel.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

We stayed as part of a group and already have plans to return independently as we enjoyed not only our stay at the hotel but Desenzano in particular. The hotel overlooks the waterfront and the lake which is spectacular. Rooms are not overly large but very comfortable with air-conditioning and wifi. The bathroom was on the small size even for two people but we managed. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room would add to the appeal. The breakfast was a buffet with a good range of food on offer including coffee machines and freshly squeezed orange juice. Some of our dinners were disappointing and not of the standard we would have expected from an Italian hotel serving Italian food. I guess this is "group food". We would most likely eat elsewhere when we visit again. Ambra on the reception desk is a delightful young lady, helpful, smiling and nothing too much trouble. She is an asset to the hotel.

When we stepped out of the car, the first thing we noticed was an amazing location and a great appearance of the hotel. When we entered, we were impressed.
A restaurant is very pretty, the breakfast is simple, but delicious. Staff on the reception is very friendly. Rooms have a huge bathroom, also beds are clean and big enough. Desenzano city is splendid! It has nice cafes, bunch of pretty boutiques and again, location by the lake is beautiful. Most of the people speak English very well.
We are comming back for sure!

Lovely view from our room with private patio. Hotel Staff were amazing, friendly, polite and very accommodating. Location excellent room spotless.

Buffet Breakfast excellent could not ask for more. Evening meals one or two bit hit or miss, but this being a package tour (Treyn with a fixed menu) not unexpected for the price we paid, but alternative a la carte menu extremely good.

Balcony view alone was worth the money (room 111), would certainly return.

Hotel was fine,location excellent,staff friendly but the holiday was spoilt because the Restaurent served awful food. Slow service,we had to pre-order each day in advance,limited choice and you had to sit at your allocated table.It was worse than school dinners.In the end we ate out.Would not return.

Hotel very clean, staff very pleasant staying here as part of a group with treyn holidays and the food is far from satisfactory. Seems like school meals but quite honestly think they were better!
Lovely view of the lake and good location
