    Clearing the plates at breakfast could have been better, The swimming pool wasn't filled when we arrived; however we understand perhaps this was due to bad weather and we were early in the season still.

    The rooms over looking Lake Garda were wonderful - due to the view. The rooms were clean, elegant decor and bathroom was very good! Breakfast was okay, I would recommend this place.

    The only issue was the poor soundproofing of windows and doors so we could hear people talking next door and the street below us. Also, the pool was closed, which was a bit disappointing. But despite this, I'd book there again.

    I loved the location, the people, and the food. The breakfast in the morning had loads of options so everyone could find something they liked. The view is simply stunning. It was so relaxing to wake up each morning looking at the lake and the mountains. Very unreal. The room was nice and clean - no complaints there for sure. The staff was lovely as well. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and smiley.

    A very nice hotel in a very beautiful place - right on the shore of Garda lake. It’s 3,5 km away from the centre of Malcesine and I would recommend walking there as it’s an amazing route with wonderful views of the lake. The breakfast is very rich and delicious and it’s served on the terrace overlooking the lake - an unforgettable experience. The room with a balcony overlooking the lake makes the experience a magnificent one. I hope I will get back here sometime.

    Hotel mostly excellent but poor wifi in our room). Had to go to reception area to gain reliable access. Also have to book and pre-order your choice for dinner before 5.30pm. Consequently, being unsure of our daily plans and timings, never dined there. Was surprisingly greeted in German which puzzled me as I am English and was in Italy looking to enjoy Italian ambience! But these minor objections would not prevent me staying there again, especially as I am told the wifi is being improved.

    Obliging and helpful staff, super room (suite 3) and stunning view of course. Excellent breakfasts. Small beach opposite. Easy walk/cycle ride to Navene and Malcesine. Or bus stop conveniently right outside. Monte Baldo easily reached.

    There was some scent of either a cleaning detergent or laundry detergent that was overwhelmingly intense in my room. I don't consider myself sensitive to these things, but this was overwhelming and not in a good way. Their soap provided struck me in the same way. I would have also liked a spare blanket for the bed.

    Breakfast was fabulous and so was the view. The younger staff were extremely friendly and kind. I was really appreciative of their efforts to make me feel welcome. The room was very nice with a stunning view. I didn't use them because I had my own, but bikes were available. The location to the sailing center was fabulous. I very much enjoyed my stay here and would return.

    Staff in general was very friendly. Apart from the owner! Was not welcoming at all when we arrived. Then, I was kindly asking if she could check if a later check- out was possible( mentioning the genius booking possibility). She did not move her face, did not seem to know what a genius booking was and without even asking for my room number, she said in a very unfriendly manner: 'No'!. Evenif everything was fully booked, the way she always looked( no smile) and her answer spoilt our rather nice experience in that hotel. Maybe she dors not have to make any efforts, if bookings just keep coming in!

    Wonderful see view from the restaurant. Easy access to the lake

    An amazing hotel with great views of Garda lake. The rooms are renovated, breakfast is great, the hotel has its own empty beach which was a very big advantage (there is also a pool if you like). The hotel is within 5 min driving from Malcesine. I would recommend staying at least for a few days to enjoy Garda

    The view was amazing! We had the ground floor lake view and it was breathtakingly beautiful. The breakfast was superb! Staffs are friendly and always willing to help. The walk from the hotel to Malcesine is a bit long (about an hour) but worth every single minute. We were so glad and had a really good time.

    The lady checked us in is friendly. You will notice immediately that it is ran by a family. An old lady and her son is walking around with grumpy faces. At late night, we asked for wine glasses, forks and knifes and the son handed to us unwillingly. I mean he gave us, but without any verbal response and of course just a set of a fork and knife (with two glasses). I felt uncomfortable to ask for a second pair. I cant rate this place bad because it is really a nice hotel with an amazing view but they could be more friendlier. (I wondered why the hotel review wasnt 10 after the check in experience, but i understood why after the check out) The place is a bit far off the center of maceline but its a nice 30 min walk along the lake so keep it in mind.

    View is amazing. Well renovated. Breakfast is amazing.

    The only small issue with the hotel is it's a fair way out of town, around a 45 min walk into Malcesine, which in the heat is hard going, when we looked on a map we thought it was closer. There is a Great tourist bus at €1.20 running hourly or a taxi back is €10, but it does just mean a little more planning
