Enjoyed a half board 7 nights visit to this hotel. The position of the hotel is first class right on the lake side Staff were excellent and food was good particularly the pasta. This was my first visit to Lake Garda and in spite of what is written in guide books Malcesine is in an ideal position to visit the... More

We booked this holiday months ago then thought little about it until a couple of days before coming here. The day before leaving home I read a couple of less than positive reviews which made me wonder if we'd made the right choice! In fact the hotel is excellent and in such a great position, you can't beat eating breakfast... More

We were half board and a wide ranging menu was available, the hotel was immaculate and very well maintained, rooms have everything you need. Hotel is only a five minute walk from the centre which is fantastic for... More

This was our third stay at this lovely hotel. We had a room at the back of the hotel with a balcony that was over the kitchen, so no view, but we spent all our time on the roof terrace or lakeside terrace which both have amazing views. Have to say the room was quite small but immaculately clean. The... More

Just returned from a fabulous trip to Lake Garda. This hotel was in a great location as identified by others, short flat walk from the main town, right on the lake's edge. Breakfasts were excellent with chef cooking eggs etc to order plus lots other choice. Great to sit out on the terrace overlooking the stunning lake and with the... More

Location. Location. Location. This hotel certainly has it and more. Eating breakfast overlooking the lake was not to be missed. Great service and a fabulous choice of dishes including freshly made scrambled egg and bacon. The hotel has a small friendly feel to it and nothing is too much trouble. Staff are polite, professional and friendly. The three different levels... More

Had a lovely week here August 10 to 17th 2016. The hotel is in a perfect location and the food is lovely. We were treated to a special evening for the mid summer feast of the Assumption This involved a lovely meal and entertainment which we thoroughly enjoyed. Although our room was small it was spotless and very comfortable. I... More

I was really pleasantly surprised when I arrived at this hotel. It wasn't cheap....but not too expensive either, so I expected to find a few minor problems. To get my only one out of the way, the rooms are very small. In fact I feel that some rooms were singles with an extra bed pushed in! Other than that I... More

We stayed at this hotel for the 2nd week of our holiday. The Hotel is located directly on the Lake front with stunning views toward Limone. We were given a welcome drink upon arrival as our room wasn't just ready. Whilst the hotel is clean, it is in needs of some serious refurbishment. It is very 70's with dark corridors... More

Unfortunately we could not afford to stay at this hotel but judging by the quality of the food I bet it would be worth the price. Me & my wife ate here the first evening we were in Malcesine, we were given the table just a couple of meters from the lake edge & ate a wonderful meal as the... More
