    Could have done with having coffee sachets in room as well as tea.

    Lovely room with a balcony overlooking the lake. Exactly what we asked for. Incredible view. Very comfortable bed . Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Great location as near the centre of the town so easy access for ferries. Parking for car too.

    Bathroom but small ( but worth it to have a lake view rather than rooms without view on back of hotel with large bathroom). Updated hairdryer would be nice. Some traffic noise unavoidable as vehicles go up hill at side of hotel.

    Stunning lake view from balcony. All the staff were very pleasant and efficient

    Nothing.

    We were lucky enough to stay in one of the rooms with two balconies so we had a lake and a mountain view. Very comfortable stay, close to amenities. Right beside cable car for Monte Baldo and a short walk to town centres. Would definitely stay again.

    The hotel has parking and and it was free of charge, but as often in Italy, the space was very narrow and it caused some challenges with a big car.

    The hotel is very nicely located close to the old town of Malcesine, and it has a beautiful garden in which guests are able to spend time. I really enjoyed the view to the garden and castle from our balcony. The air conditioning was very effective which was extremely nice during the hot summer days. Breakfast was very delicious and we enjoyed the possibility to have it outside.

    Bed and pillows were hard and uncomfortable, however, that could be due to personal preference. Although the room looked almost brand new, some things in the hotel felt outdated. Garage was very cramped.

    Great location, only couple of minutes walk from Malcesine centre. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Very good breakfast.

    The bed was slightly uncomfortable, as it was hard and the duvet was quite thin. The lift to get to the room is quite small and can't fit many people, so if you have a lot of luggage it would be a bit of a struggle. However, neither of these things reduced the overall experience of the hotel and would not put us off staying again.

    The hotel was so much better than myself and my daughter had anticipated. The photos and information given to us about facilities at the hotel wasn't very accurate - because they were better! All members of staff who we interacted with provided an excellent service by being warm, welcoming and friendly (despite us not speaking any Italian whatsoever). In the morning, you have a choice of whether to eat breakfast inside or outside. The sound of a water stream running and the early morning chirping from the birds, not forgetting the breath taking view, truly made breakfast an experience. The hotel was a great location as it was in walking distance of the castle and local shops. There is even a supermarket within walking distance and the 'beach' was not too far either.

    Really only minor details: Parking is complicated in all over Malcesine so we were happy that the hotel provides parking (although not for free). Our room had a funny smell when we first entered it which was mostly gone after opening the windows. This might come from the wood materials in the room. Maybe the owners want to check it.

    Perfect hotel (and location) for an extended weekend. For spots enthusiasts, the location next to a MTB rental place as well as the Monte Baldo Funivia was perfect. The view from the 3rd floor over Malcesine is magnificant. We recommend this place to anyone that wants to spend a lovely time in Malcesine.

    The hot tub didn't work on the day we stayed here, but apparently it had been working the day before, and they were already in the process of repairing it by the following morning. Make sure you have lots of insect repellent if you do go near the hot tub - the mosquitos were vicious.

    Nice room with large balcony and absolutely stunning view directly across to the castle (it is worth requesting a room on the 2nd floor or above to ensure a good view).

    The view from our room. Wow. It is worth paying the extra for a view if you can. Simply stunning. Our room was spacious and clean, very modern. The hotel itself is lovely, with gardens, hammocks and a whirlpool. Great place to relax. We spent a couple of days in Malcesine, scouting out a wedding venue, I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone planning a wedding here, so close to the castle, town and restaurants. Its perfect. We will definitely be sending some of our future guests this way.

    We did not have any bad experience to complain about.

    The position of the hotel just off the main, and busy Via Gardesana, but still close to the town, the local bus route, and next to the Monte Baldo cable way. We also like the beautiful garden, excellent breakfast, and the helpful, yet unintrusive, staff. We were also completely taken with the spectacular view of the castle from our room and balcony ( all rooms have balconies, wonderful!)
