    The television set was too small and difficult to operate.

    The staff were extremely attentive and pleasant, but quite formal. The views were wonderful. The rooms were a generous size and well-appointed.

    Absolutely outstanding hotel. The best I have ever stayed in. The level of service was outstanding. I booked a superior room and received an upgrade to a junior suite as soon as I arrived. The food and wine list were excellent.

    room furniture, old and not perfectly functioning tv, bathroom and shower cabinet too small, door and walls of guestroom not properly insulated: conversations and noise in the hallway and adjacent room could be clearly heard which was disturbing. Should rather be a 4-star facility instead of the present 5 star.

    We had a corner Junior suite (I think that was what it was called), with a lovely balcony overlooking the lake. There was nothing we did not like about the hotel, but what made it that bit extra special was the staff. If we return to the area this would be our first choice for accommodation.

    Very poor facilities in bedroom. Bed very hard. Tiles cracked around sink and basin cracked. thin small towels. Useless hairdryer. TV didn't work. Fridge barely cool. No flowers/fruit in room (as we would expect in a 5 star hotel) Furnishings very basic. Small wardrobe with only 6 hangars. No make-up mirror or dressing table. one chair in room.Shower was a 'challenge' as comprised of hand held head over bath, shower curtain blew onto body when using shower! Not five star in any way.

    Villa Del Sogno was our first mini-moon destination. Arriving at night, we were collected by the staff from the car park. This set the tone for the rest of the trip, which was superb service, delivered faultlessly, and in a gorgeous setting. We particularly dining at the restaurant, both breakfast, and their in house restaurant Maximillian, where food was served on the terrace overlooking Lake Garda - a location bar none. George Clooney stayed here some years ago, they have not rested on those laurels, and have given us amazing memories through a wonderful stay. PS their caprese salad is unbelievably delicious, simply the best we sampled in North Italy!

    Air con on second floor not adjustable from rooms as broken. Misled by staff initially. It had to be adjusted from reception. Moved rooms as first room had no bath. First room sitting room area very drab. Second room sitting area better lighter furniture and more use as TV there. Older bathroom but had bath. Swimming pool Pretty with nice views but freezing ( in August). Unusable other than by kids or nagged Dads. Very loud music on Saturday night. Fairly extreme jazz for nearly 4 hours. Dominated terrace and bar and terrace restaurant. We went out to avoid. Told it would end at 11 pm. It did not. Finally stopped at 11.45 on second request. Very old, interior with heavy furniture - mis matched fabrics, carpets and net curtains ! Overpriced. Not worth nearly 500 Euros a night for B&B. Good food but only if eat outside. Internal Dinjng Room ghastly. Go to the Grand Hotel Gardeno Riviera instead.
