Situated at the side of Lake Garda at Salò and very close to the ferry terminal, Locanda del Benaco is a friendly hotel with a modern basic based design that is comfortable. There is a long esplanade along the lake with many bars and restaurants.
Reaching the hotel is difficult by car due to pedestrianisation but we found a public car park at the top end of the lakeside esplanade near the church and walked in without our luggage.
A very friendly and helpful welcome and arrangements were quickly made for someone to bring us in from the car park, unload and then take us to a multi story car park in town, where the charge was 8 euros per day.
Our room was on the first floor and was of a very modern design, clean and comfortable with a stone balcony overlooking the lake. There was some noise at night from the outdoor area, particularly at weekend and a room at the back of the hotel may have been quieter.
Breakfasts were a very good buffet selection of cereals, pastries, some cooked meats and eggs freshly cooked on request.
We ate some evening meals at the hotel, which has a limited menu although the food was very well prepared and absolutely delicious.
There is a rooftop balcony with bar for somewhere quieter to sit.
This was a very good stay with friendly and helpful staff.
