We just had a truly amazing stay at this wonderful villa on the Brenta.
We have chosen this venue for its good reviews and for the charm of the villa.
The villa is conveniently located to visit the Brenta region and the historic cities of Venice, Padua and Vicenza.
The rooms are elegant, tall frescoed ceilings, Murano chandeliers, and nice furniture and rugs.
The villa is surrounded by its own very well kept park and within it, the old chapel and stables can be seen.
I would really like to thank all the Staff at Villa Ducale for their continuous assistance and care during our stay.
Laura and Alessandra from reception assisted us with every requests and enquiries in a professional and friendly way.
On our last night I wanted to celebrate and the Chef kindly created a superb menu for us.
Oysters, scampi, eel and tuna were purchased especially for us from the local fish markets and he skillfully prepared us an unforgettable dinner.
I travel a lot and this kind of service does rarely come by.
All the Staff made us feel welcome and they looked after us very well.
I would strongly recommend this establishment.

This was something we had wanted to do for some time. We have stayed in several 'residenze d'epoca' in Italy, including a stay in a beautiful palazzo in Umbria. This holiday we were in the Veneto and researched several places along the Brenta Canal, but this was the one that stole our heart. We were so glad they had a room for us in this stunning historic building with frescos on the walls and real Murano chandeliers. Our huge room was on the first floor. To be truthful there was some noise from the main road along the road leading to Venice, but we had known about that before we booked and took along our ear plugs which solved that problem. Breakfast was really plentiful served with a smile.

We were there on a Tuesday when the hotel restaurant was closed, but the lovely receptionist recommended two restaurants along the main road from the hotel. We can't recommend the Re dei Quadri highly enough. Modern Italian decor and cuisine.

We book this Villa to celebrate our wedding in June/11 -a Saturday- (we live in Canada). We made and confirmed the reservation for the event in Nov/10. A downpayment was sent in Dec/10. Several confirmations were received, info regarding details for the wedding day were discussed with the owner and the front desk's person several times as well.
Then, just 2 months before the wedding (April/11), they sent us an e-mail saying that there had been a mistake (made by an employee that is not longer there and from who we never heard!): they booked 2 weddings for the same day and time (evening)! It took them almost 6 months to find out the error!!! So, they said we had to reschedule our wedding for Sunday!
By that time, most of our guests had booked already tickets and made work arrangements... Villa Ducale did nothing to help us. At the end, we had to find by ourselves another place to celebrate the wedding (more expensive of course due to the short-notice booking). Some of our guests are now not able to come due to the changes.
A lot of money, time and effort wasted!!! We regret and are so disappointed about doing business with Villa Ducale (Venice).
We do not want other people to have this kind of bad experiences... be careful!
NOTE:
We did not stay at the hotel, as stated above, for this reason we cannot rate aspects such as cleanliness, sleep quality, rooms, etc.
This is a clarification from our previous review (same content) that was already removed.
Within the options available to check under the subject "Rate this hotel" there is not the option of "not applicable (N/A)", for that reason at the time of the first review we marked all the aspects with the lowest rate.

We had the best holiday there and were in awe of how beautiful this Villa and grounds were. Waking up each morning and looking out onto those grounds was wonderful.Thoroughly enjoyed our Breakfast each morning and had some really memorable Dinners in the restaurant too.You made our stay in Italy very special and we still day-dream about your beautiful place.

The hotel is in a beautiful setting, the grounds are tranquil and inviting. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was a relaxed feel about the place. There was a wide range of food for breakfast including cereals, fresh fruits, pastries, cakes and also some hot food. You can eat your breakfast outside if you wish which was a nice touch in the gardens / patio area. The rooms were fairly standard but nice with a large bathroom. We travelled quite a bit around Italy and this was by far the best hotel we stayed in during our trip.
There was a mini fridge / bar in your room but I'm always disappointed when there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room - this was the only negative thing for me.
