“Superb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

I'll definitely be back and recommend this place wholeheartedly. It's not the best hotel in the world, but just an amazing location overlooking the lake. It's a bit near the road, but that didn't bother me. The only negative is the lack of adequate soundproofing - the inconsiderate, door slamming, high-healed women upstairs was immensely irritating as was the guy with the smokers cough next door.
The breakfast was really good too. The service was unremarkable, but no negatives to report on that front.

We had a fabulous time touring Milan, Venice, then up into the mountains, staying at some fabulous places.

Then we arrived here. It's right on the lake but also right on the road, noisy at back even with double glazing.

We were shown a family room (a double with a bed squeezed in) asked for another room, etc, no help. Ended up having a meal while we looked for somewhere else, food was very mediocre, service awful, view is fantastic, but everything was so different from the Italy we had experienced. Breakfast was dreadful, the food was tired, everything in plastic packets.

They wouldn't give us any money back and held onto our passports until we paid in full despite us not having what we believed we had booked.

Stay a little bit further away from the lake or in Sirmione for more money, don't waste a euro here.

Dire.

Gentile cliente, rispondo solo ora a questa recensione (avendo creato l'account solo oggi 24 settembre 2014) per dire che l'episodio a cui fa riferimento, di avere trattenuto i passaporti, non si è mai verificato nel nostro hotel e aggiungo che mai si verificherà, semplicemente perché la cosa non ha senso: avendo comunque registrato il documento al check-in. Nella nostra colazione, poi, non c'è nulla in sacchetti di plastica: tutto il cibo è fresco. Concludo dicendo che quanto riportato nella recensione o è inventato o probabilmente è accaduto altrove.

We happened upon this hotel while driving around Lake Garda. What a lucky find! It was beautiful clean and nice and right on the water. Our room opened out to the private beach and beautiful garden. For the price, this is one of the nicest hotels I've experienced.

This hotel is wonderfully located on the shore of Lake Garda, just 15-20 minutes walk from the shops and restaurants of Maderno. The rooms are well decorated, clean and fresh - my only criticism is that the bathroom appears to have been created like a wet room but the water from the shower creates a slipping hazard on the floor tiles (I have marked the room score down because of this).
The beds and pillows are very comfortable and the air conditioning adds to the sleep quality that we found to be excellent.
The overall service was mixed but the front desk was very good throughout - helpful and informative.
We ate dinner in the restaurant during our stay and found the food and service to be good; we ate outside overlooking the lake - wonderful.
Buffet breakfast was included in the price of the room - a good choice of food with outside tables in a lovely location overlooking the lake.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake for wonderful views.

As part of a lengthy motoring holiday around France and Italy, we were keeping our itinerary quite "loose" in case we wanted to change our plans - consequently this booking was made quite late and without even bothering to check the reviews.
We arrived to discover a magnificent hotel in an incredible location - and our experience was pretty much the same as all the other reviewers on here.
Our room was on the garden level and opened directly onto the grass leading towards the steps down to the private beach.
Absolutely idyllic.
Room was spotless, staff were friendly and VERY helpful, breakfast was excellent etc etc.
Impossible to fault.

We stayed at Villa Maria for 9 nights, the hotel is a in a perfect position right by the lake. The breakfasts were buffet style and there was plenty of choice. We also ate in the hotel restaurant and throughly enjoyed the meals. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. We can't wait to return next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view.

Relaxing, enchanting this is the place to chill out in style. The hotel is right next to the lake, the rooms are elegant and breakfast was very good. The only downside is the sofa beds in the rooms are not comfortable for adults and would suggest only to use them for small children.

Room Tip: The hotel often sells out, but some internet travel agents have pre booked rooms so you can still fi...
