“Great Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2012

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Martin the charming hotel receptionist picked us up from the coach park in the little electric powered buggy as the hotel is situated in a pedestrianised area at the edge of the lake. Our room was lovely – decent size with modern bathroom and we were lucky to have balcony with wonderful views overlooking the lake. The hotel is next to the ferry dock (which might bother some) but interesting watching the boats coming in and out and they don’t run early in the day or in the evening. We enjoyed the half board deal there – generous morning buffet with hot and cold food and if you had an early trip out they would prepare it early for you as long as you let them know. For evening dinner we were given a table indoors for the duration overlooking the lake and ducks and swans floated by as you eat dinner – it was delightful. The dinner is 4 course (including optional salad starter) and of decent quality with free wine and 4 choices of starter and main, and help yourself sweet and we were happy with the options.
The staff were friendly and attentive – thanks to Martin & Rosanna on reception and Alina in Dining Room and the guy who gave us a lift to the coach park early one morning when it was raining hard!
Limone is a lovely, pretty relaxing resort and we were glad we chose it. Mainly pedestrianised so no traffic to worry about and lots of nice shops/ bars and lovely churches.
We went on the optional trips to the Dolomites which was nice although worst day weather wise, and to Venice which we enjoyed although long trip from Lake Garda (4 hours including water taxi). We went walking around Limone and took ferry (which takes 20 minutes) across to Malcesine which was nice place to visit. The castle is well worth a visit – a British wedding party were there. The cable car to Monte Baldo long queues and Germans pushing in so we did not bother with that.
Although it was the last week in September and we had some showers generally the weather was warm and sunny.
I would recommend Hotel Le Palme and Limone without reservation and would like to return in the future.

We stayed at Le Palme recently – booked with Crystal. Limone is just a wonderful place to stay and you can explore the North of the Lakes from there very easily.
We had a Lake View Room – No. 212 – two windows facing the lake – with lovely views. (See photos). There was a very big wardrobe with plenty of coat hangers which is always pleasing to find. The bathroom is fantastic and the whole room was cleaned well each day. There is a very well hidden safe – which costs 1 Euro per day. You can also have Wifi for 10 Euros for the week – which was excellent value. There is a fridge in the room – we didn't use the contents but were able to squeeze a couple of bottles of water in it to keep cool. There are no tea and coffee making facilities but we took our travel kettle which was very handy.
The staff are very pleasant – although seemed very busy and never stopped – which often resulted in long waits to be served in the terrace restaurant at lunchtime and no time for any conversation during dinner.
Our dining room table at night was on the terrace – which was fantastic. However, because we were seated beside the paying dining guests, we could see that the service they received was definitely superior to ours. We realise they were paying for their meals – but we too had paid for ours through Crystal. There are several different areas that you can help yourself to food – i.e. salad bar, dessert table and bread tables. On one evening we helped ourselves to bread on the terrace – and were told we shouldn't have the bread from there as it was reserved for the paying diners!
For the first 3 nights we were very disappointed in the main course of the meal as there seemed to be a lack of vegetables. On the 4th night we discovered that there were containers of vegetables by the salad bar – which had never been pointed out to us. We found out that several other guests had not been told about these either. We were a bit disappointed in the lack of Italian food on our menu – there were some in the starter menu, but examples of the dishes on the main courses were pork in sauce, goulash and beef stew – hardly Italian. The dessert table was often very sparse - once a dish was finished it wasn’t replaced. The vegetarian meals seemed very limited – one guest voiced some concern about them during our stay.
Unfortunately there seemed to be a lack of information given in the Hotel – we were not informed about the first floor sitting room or the sun terrace – we were aware of the sun terrace having read reviews on Trip Advisor – but had some difficulty finding it, which was such a shame. There was no information file in the room which gave information about the facilities in the Hotel.
The location of the hotel is great – yes it’s a bit noisy with the ferry at times during the day – but it really didn't bother us and the ferries don’t run after 7pm so the hotel is very peaceful at night. The pool is close by – and very quiet and private.
The location of this hotel is great – step outside and you are instantly close to the shops and restaurants etc. The market is in Limone on a Wednesday – but we found that many items were cheaper in the shops.
I probably wouldn't stay in Le Palme again – certainly not half board – but would possibly consider bed and breakfast.

We stayed for a week having booked through Inghams. The staff were very friendly and helpful right from the start. The location was very convenient for the ferry and the town, and although central we did not have any problems with noise etc at night.

The room was clean, with a lake view and an excellent power shower. The food was good with plenty choice. We would definitely book this hotel again if we were in the area.

Room Tip: Many rooms have lake view.

This was the second hotel my husband and I stayed in as part of a two week stay in Lake Garda. The location was excellent as it is in the centre of the town and right next to the Ferry Port. On arrival we were picked up by Rosanna in an electric buggy as streets are too narrow for taxi to get through. Rosanna was delightful and we received a discount card for ferries etc and complimentary glasses of prosseco. We took our cases to our room and it was very clean and the new bathroom was great with fabulous power shower.The only downsde is it is very dark and you would not want to sit in it for any time to read etc.There did not seem to be a lounge area, although it turned out there was but this had never been pointed out to us. This was a pity as the first few days of our arrival weather was mixed and it would have been a good place to relax. The third floor sun terrace is lovely and the two whirlpool tubs were good fun. Great for sore feet as the jets acted like a masseur!

The breakfast I thought was good with lots of choice of cereals, hot food and pastries. Dinner I found lacking as although the salad area was good the first and main courses were no where near the standard of the previous three star hotel in Malcesine. The service was not great as staff overworked and requests for more water etc were often forgotten.

The service in the terrace bar was good and we did have a laugh with a few of the waiters.

We did have a great holiday and made many good friends. Laura and Kenny if you are reading this drop me a message

Recently arrived back from a 4 night stay at this hotel in Limone booked through Thomson Lakes and Mountains with Crystal Holiday reps looking after us in resort. This was our first trip to the Italian Lakes and we were totally blown away by the stunning beauty of the area, and without doubt the top end of Lake Garda where Limone is situated is the most beautiful place to be. Hotel Le Palme is well situated next to the Lake and the ferry port. Some of the ferries were a little noisy but this did not bother us, just added to the feel of the place. We paid a little extra for a lake view, well worth it. Our room though not huge was perfectly adequate with large very comfortable bed. Modern bathroom with lovely powerful shower. Everything very clean and was thoroughly cleaned every day.
Having read previous reviews about the dining arrangements we wondered how we would find it. We arrived on a Saturday and the restaurant was very busy. We were seated inside and did complain. Staff were very polite and we were informed that the following night when less busy we would have a different table. The following evening we had a table next to the lake which we had each night from then. The food, though nothing outstanding we found perfectly acceptable. A good selection of salad, then a choice of 4 starters, 4 mains and selection of sweets, fruit or cheeses. Wine, beer and water included. We found after a day of sight seeing and having a lovely lunch somewhere gorgeous, the hotel food was fine. Breakfast was extremely pleasant sitting lakeside with a large selection of cereals, breads preserves and hot food watching the boats.
Limone itself has plenty of cafe bars and shopping through lots of small cobbled streets, a delight to wonder round. Whilst we were there it was extremely hot with hardly a breeze so the air conditioning in our room was a welcome relief.
Getting about the top end of the lake was easily negotiated by the ferries. Riva is a lovely place. We did do a lake tour by boat available from the new port which took us to Sirmione and Garda, taking in various sights on the way which was very pleasant. We also went to Malcesine then by cable car to the top of Monte Baldo which is recommended even though the queue was huge. The scenery up there is absolutely fabulous!
All in all we had a wonderful time and would have no hesittion in recommending Hotel Le Palme and Limone, though perhaps not really a family holiday.

Room Tip: Go for a Lake View

A few days before leaving I read some negetative reviews about Le Palme hotel Lemone, so a little unsure what to expect.

We arrived a little late to the hotel so dinner was instant chose your meal and got sent straight to the dinning room. We were staying half board but had paid a supplement for a lake view room (not a lot extra) and we were politely shown to our table and explained that this is where we would dine each night. A great table outside with a beautiful lake view one comment quashed.

Yes the food is not the same as the paying guests but we were not paying the full menu prices but what a choice salad with either salmon or prawns etc for starters each evening four choices of starters and main meals then the sweet buffet table. If you needed more cheeses, crackers and breads the wine and beer was limitless all the time you were eating. (One point I don’t think the Italians do mash potatoes backed potatoes would maybe been a better option)
There are the safe choices chicken, pork each evening but there were more adventurous choices to Swordfish, Scallops Octopus you never know till you try so have a go at the unusual I was very pleasantly surprised.

When dinner was over Martin in reception had taken our cases to our room (many thanks Martin)

Our room was spotless bathroom clean and modern. The lake view stunning it would have been nice to have tea coffee facilities (but that’s just us Brits and our tea) we had packed a travel kettle so no real problem.

Next morning everyone greeted you with bonjorno and a smile and what a breakfast cereal, fresh fruits, cold meats, bacon n eggs, sausages, toast, croissants, breads, cheeses limitless coffee and juices.

One good point about breakfast if you are out early tell the night manager in reception the evening before what time and he will have everything ready except bacon eggs etc plenty of it too no need for packed breakfasts.

The staff can’t do enough to help you from the minute you arrive to the day you leave, while respecting your privacy they will either leave you to your meal or engage you in banter.

We were late arriving back from Venice on the gala night we had texted our rep Jim ( this lad has a very professional out look for his first season many thanks ) he informed the hotel and they served us our meal as soon as we arrived back no stress

One point to make about staying in Lemone you will be the first pick up for any excursions (except the lake tour) and you may be on the coach 2 hrs before you all leave to where ever you are going so plan accordingly you will also be one of the last to be dropped off to. Venice was a 13.5 hr day on gala night but don’t let that put you off booking a place not to be missed


The day we left to come home they gave us a safe place to keep our bags and a room to use to change and shower before the long haul back home this meant we could enjoy our last morning in Lemone what a pleasant touch many thanks.

All in all we had a fantastic time at this hotel and can recommend it to any adults wishing to get a real feel of Italy (I don’t think it has the enmities for families children etc) many thanks to all the staff, reps, tour guides and coach drivers for a amazing week in your beautiful country

O and chat to Lucka he had a fantastic grasp of English (Pleases!)

Room Tip: book a lake view room you won't regret it

We have just returned from a week stay at Le Palme Hotel, Limone, staying on a half-board basis which was booked through Crystal Holidays. The reps from Crystal Holidays were also very good, Jim looked after our hotel and we also met Katie as well. They could not do enough to help and were easy to contact should you have a problem.
The resort of Limone is absolutely beautiful and is an ideal place to stay with easy access to the near by towns of Riva, Malcesine etc. We had been to Limone on a previous occassion and stayed at the Panorma Hotel in Limone which is a sister hotel of Le Palme Hotel, but decided we wanted to stay in the centre of town during our second visit. We were not disappointed. The hotel was excellent and definitely worth its four star rating. The hotel pool is a little small and is shared with the guests from the Splendid Palace and it is sometimes difficult to get a sun bed. However, on the third floor of Le Palme hotel they have a sun terrace with two jacuzzi spa baths and nine sunbeds so after we found this we never ventured near the pool again as the view from the terrace over the lake was fantastic. All the staff work extremely hard to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, from the chamber maids to the waiting staff etc. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the bathrooms have been refurbished to a very high standard and the cleanliness of the rooms is first class. We found the food at the hotel to be extremely enjoyable and there was always something to choose from off the menu everynight even for the fussiest of eaters. The gala dinner on the friday night was really good too. The staff in the restaurant were really friendly and helpful, many thanks to Daniel, Luca, Liugi etc for their friendly banter. A big thanks also to Rosanna and Martin in Reception for their assistance. All in all we would definitely recommend a stay at Le Palme Hotel. Thanks again for a fantastic holiday.

Room Tip: Room 302 has 2 windows one overlooking the lake and one to the side and is extremely light.
