Hotel Mayer & Splendid
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2010

The location really couldn't be more fabulous, you have the town behind you and the ferry for trips around the lake just over the road. The market will spread out right on the street in front of you if you're there on the right day.
Be sure to look up, as you walk up the stairs so that you don't miss the beautifully painted ceiling; there are also trompe l'oeil panels painted around the hotel too. The rooms are well equipped, and may of them have lake views and / or balconies.
The staff were very courteous and kind to us during our stay. The bar is nicely located so that you can sit and people-watch while sipping the local aperitif, an Aperol spritzer.

This is a 3 star hotel with 5 star customer service. The staff was amazing, helpful and always accomodating. The rooms were average but nice and clean with views of the lake at a great price. Right in the middle of town with many things to do. Don't need a car; can walk everywhere. To get to the lakeside beach you have to walk about 3 blocks. It looked like a nice beach (We didn't use it because it rained most of our visit). The only downside: no pool.

Fabulous views over the lake - very good location for the town. Parking was brilliant. Watch out for the market on tuesday mornings which starts at 7am in the morning and is very noisy.
Rooms comfortable but basic.

This hotel was very basic but was the most fantastic locatio. The rooms had air con and the view from the balcony was out of this world. To sit and look out over the lake with a glass of wine was the perfect holiday. The room itself was a bit dated and tired looking but was clean enough.

I read the review that said the Splendid Mayer was unpleasant and therefore approached my holiday a little anxiously. When I arrived at the hotel i could'nt believe that the lady had stayed at the same place. It was an old exquisite building with loads of charm and a real feeling of elegance. The rooms were spacious and well decorated, I personally had two single beds in one room and a large dressing room and a bathroom. As a single occupant I have often spent my holday in a broom cupboard but this was wonderful. The staff were helpful and the food was of a very good quality. Please don't be put off by what you read stay open minded and you will I am sure be really pleasantly surprised. Given half a chance I would go back tomorrow.

Dreadful hotel. Was rated 3 stars. Rooms very dated and small.

Asked for a larger room which we were given but the bathroom was horrible. The shower was 2 foot square and the tiling grout was mouldy and dirty. The toilet was opposite the shower and next to the sink with the result that it was very difficult to use as you had to maneouvre yourself into place. I had to sit on the toilet sideways and for any large women it would have been impossible. We did have clean towels and bed linen however it was very basic, with some of the lights not working, limited storage space, dirty bathroom. One elevator to the second floor which would barely fit two people. We were staying half board and the food was atrocious especially the dinner. There were no vegetables at all until the end of the week after numerous complaints by different people who travelled with us. The staff did not seem to care and there was no pride taken in the hotel by the staff. Lake Garda is a beautiful holiday destination but this hotel was awful. I would not recommend it for anyone.
