“3rd time at this gorgeous hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013 via mobile

We were so fortunate to be able to enjoy our 20th anniversary at this wonderful family owned hotel. Many friends and family were able to celebrate with us. They prepared a delicious 3 course meal and made it so very special. I can't thank Barbara, Mary, Mohammed and the entire staff enough for making our stay so memorable! When I'm home and working I often think about this place and when we can return again. You will not be disappointed! The town of Gargnano is a 5 minute walk and is so charming.

We spent 10 days here - a anniversary treat and probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in. It's family-run with a small staff who know your names the day you arrive. The gardens are beautiful, fastidiously tended and full of colour. The location, next to the lake with a backdrop of snow peaked mountains is jaw-dropping and though we were lucky with the weather it's equally impressive when a storm blows in. Service is immaculate, not overbearing, just thoroughly professional whilst retaining a genuine personal touch. The building has great character and our room, at the front facing the lake with a balcony was gorgeous. The facilities are all you would expect from a hotel of this class - a huge swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness machines, steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi etc. One of its ultimate attractions is the lakeside terrace. Eating there as the sun sets surrounded by beacons is as romantic as it comes. The menu concentrates on local fish and is priced commensurate with local restaurants of a similar standard. Ultimately, a fantastic holiday at a superb hotel.

Room Tip: Room 9 in the main building is the one to have.

My wife and I stayed here last summer when we had a short break.
From the south of Germany it can easily be reached in a day.
Hotel rooms were spacious and in the style of the villa.
We enjoyed breakfast and dinners in the garden right beside the lake.
There was a very friendly atmosphere, and food was excellent.

We hope to visit again soon

When we booked we were told there were no lake view rooms available, only garden views. We were slightly disappointed, but it turned out unnecessarily so. We could easily see wonderful lake views from our room by simply going up to the window and looking either left or right .
In fact, the beautifully kept gardens, balconies and lakeside terrace where you eat your meals, all have fabulous lake views. It's wonderful to eat your meals watching the light on the mountains, hearing the water lapping, being watched by birds on the water and the occasional boat passengers - who can't get too close because there is a 50 m safe area for swimming.
The hotel has a private entrance to a small rocky beach and whilst we were there the lovely hotel pool was deserted, all the guests, us included, swam in the lake. A wonderfully relaxing treat, no chlorine and minimal turns required. A real antidote to lane swimming.
The hotel restaurant was not only perfectly situated but also served delicious well presented food. Which, particularly when compared to the prices we had paid on Lake Como, the week before our stay , we thought well priced.
All the hotel staff from receptionists, to waiters, to gardeners had been working there for years and the service was excellent. They all took the time to share a few words of greeting whenever you passed them in the hotel. It had a family run feel about it. We spoke to quite a few guests who had been visiting for years and that we thought was the highest recommendation you can get.
We thoroughly recommend this hotel and we hope to visit again, in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely. The upper tower garden room is cheaper than lake view rooms but still has a vi...

Villa Giulia is a small antique hotel in superb condition. Lovely atmosphere,lovely gardens,fantastic views across Lake Garda. Slept perfectly since mattress is amazing. Dinner overlooking the lake with tiny lights sparkling across the lake very magical. Breakfast included and exc. in every way. A short walk into a charming small town. One negative: service for dinner extremely slow. Transportation to the area (from train station) a little complicated.

Just arrived home in Dubai after our third stay at the Villa Giulia. We adore this hotel. Wonderful hotel, wonderful staff and absolutely peaceful. One of the few places I go where I sleep properly, and I travel a lot! We will return next year. Thankyou Barbara, you have a wonderful hotel and great team of people.

Spent 5 glorious days at this beautiful hotel on our honeymoon. From the minute we walked in, nothing was too much trouble for any of the brilliant staff. The facilities, gardens, service, food and wine were all exceptional. There is something special about this place. Can't wait to visit again.....maybe on our anniversary!
Thank you to all at Villa Guilia who made our stay one we will never forget.
