“A Real Gem”
Reviewed 21 August 2006

I was hesitant about booking a 3 -star rated hotel with all the family in tow, so I booked a second hotel as a backup! I shouldn't have bothered.

This is a modern hotel in an idyllic setting overlooking Lake Garda, which can be accessed via a pleasant short stroll down to the shore some 500 yards away. Here you will find two restaurants for snacks or more robust meals. The road also continues directly into the village of Gargnano, with about a dozen restaurants, some on a promenade over the lake.

The views from the private balconies of the lake facing rooms (make sure you request a lake view) are serene & beautiful. The beds are very comfortable and there is a TV and fridge.

Lunch & Dinner is served in a dedicated restaurant area again with views directly over the lake. The food is of a good standard, with all fresh ingredients. Breakfast is served in a restaurant below, with the same beautiful views and is of a good standard again, with a choice of breads/croissants, fresh fruit, yoghurts, eggs, juices and cereals etc.

The garden area is small, but this is compensated by the fact that the lake is a short stroll away. There is also a roof terrace and hotel facilities include a really decent sized indoor swimming pool (free) as well as a sauna, sun room and Jacuzzi (at modest ad hoc charge).

There is also secure parking on the hotel grounds.

But if all the above does not tempt you enough, what adds the cherry on the top are the staff; from the proprietors (3 sisters I believe) through to the waitress and cleaning staff. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is done with a smile.

So to sum up, this hotel is not 'The Ritz', but neither is the price!! If you are looking for a peaceful yet convenient location, clean accommodation, delightful staff, good food and views to enjoy with a bottle of the local 'Bordellino' - this hotel should do the trick. I will certainly pay another visit, should I return to the Lake in the future.

Oh- and as for the other hotel we booked. We stayed 2 dreadful nights (only because they refused to charge for any less) and came right back to Hotel Meandro, for our final nights on the lake! Ciao!

The Hotel Meandro is a lovely family-run hotel in Gargnano. The owners (3 sisters) are extremely helpful and pleasant.

My room was spacious and lovely and had a balcony with a 180 degree panorama of the lake and mountains. There is also a roof terrace which provides a 360 degree view.

The hotel is clean and quiet (even with the occasional tour bus).

I chose half-board which included breakfast (buffet) and the evening meal. The food was excellent and plentiful.

The prices are moderate and the value for the price is outstanding.

I would definitely stay here again
