“Fantastic Location, loved Torri”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

Loved the location, but the Romeo wasn’t as nice as I expected. Relatively clean although I wouldn’t say spotless, it was neat and tidy. We stayed in September and were in the 2 storey annex near the pool and the room was quite small with twin beds, and the shower room tiny. Not much room to move about.
We had a nice little TV with BBC1 and I know you don’t go on hols to watch TV but it was nice to catch up with a few bits. We had a bit of trouble with the taps in the sink. Turned a little, a spout of water then stopped, turned again, the same, turned again water gushed out and splashed everywhere. Sometimes took a while to get up to temperature. Our air con was still working and we needed to use it a few times. The shutters were lovely on the windows to keep out the afternoon glare for a siesta. Windows could also be opened fully however the ‘curtains’ were attached to the inside so if you had shutters and windows open there wasn’t much privacy as you were overlooked by the balconies of the main part of the hotel. The safe deposit box was in the room and was free, but fairly small.
Dinner and breakfast were OK. Breakfast was fine but the choice didn’t vary much during the week. We could have an early start for breakfast if we had trips, which was very helpful. We weren’t offered any cooked breakfast although some others did have egg/bacon so not sure if they paid extra for that. Would’ve been nice to be told what the procedure was so we could make an informed decision if we wanted some or not. They had cereal, fruit, the ‘german’ breakfast i.e. meat & cheese, bread and ‘melba’ type hard ‘toast’ but didn’t see any ‘normal’ toast. Hard boiled eggs and yogs. We were offered tea/coffee every morning and usually got a pot so plenty for each person. Sometimes had to ask for milk, usually got hot frothy milk with the coffee and cold with tea, plus lemon. We were sat at the same table every meal and had the guy as our waiter. He was friendly but sometimes seemed a bit ‘dippy’. He sometimes cleared away our plates very quickly and then we had a long wait between courses. He also managed to bring others their next course before they had even finished the last one while we were still waiting. I did ask for butter one evening to go with the bread rolls/soup but it never came. Mostly it was funny. He even tried to take away a plate of the chap sitting on the next table to us and he hadn’t even finished. The evening meals had to be chosen at breakfast which was interesting because you don’t always know what you’d like to eat that evening but there you go. Also the practice of keeping your napkins for more than one meal, in a little envelope was a bit weird but we kept ours fairly clean so not really an issue. The tables were quite tightly packed into the dining room. There was always a choice of 3 starters and 3 mains, plus you had the salad that you could pick yourself, plus dessert. There was always a soup and normally 2 types of pasta for starters. The helpings were plentiful especially the pasta ones. There was always a fish dish for main and on a couple of occasions the other 2 choices were escalope with different toppings so if you were keen on fish or escalope you were pretty much done for. Mostly the food was fairly tasty but towards the end of the week it got a bit repetitive. There was a nice roast chicken leg one night. Drinks could either be bought at the bar and you had a choice of pay as you go or bar tab on to the room, you could also get drinks at your table. I liked the idea of the choice as we always prefer to pay as you go so you don’t get any nasty shocks at the end. There seemed to be a distinct lack of 7 up around the lake, which I found very surprising. They did have sprite but it didn’t taste the same. One the first night I asked for lemonade and got a cloudy lemon ‘soda’ which wasn’t too bad but quite acidic. Also tried the orange soda which was a little better and ended up on the orange fanta. We also tried the ‘spritz’ which was very sharp and dry. We did have some water left on our table one evening and I mentioned that it wasn’t ours but this was a freebie which I thought was quite nice, it wasn’t a full bottle but still a nice touch. I also managed to leave my cardi behind one time and didn’t realise it was missing until it was time to pack. When we handed the keys back there it was hanging on a peg outside the dining room, which I thought was kinda strange as we had the same table every time so it could only have been mine so why didn’t they just leave it on the back of the chair in which case I could pick it up the next time or actually return it to me? Still I guess it’s my silly fault for leaving it behind in the first place!! Generally staff were OK, fairly friendly and helpful.
Any way the general area of the hotel seemed nice. Pool seemed to be cleaned daily. Had quite a few seats with tables and sun loungers. Loved the 2 black rabbits on the grounds.
Location to town was excellent. Just far enough to be away from the noise but close enough for a quick 2 min stroll to the main areas. Didn’t find the actual hotel too noisy really. The Germans were a little noisy during the siesta time, laughing and joking but they are on hols. Seemed relatively quite in the evenings but we did normally get back after 11.00 pm ish. There was usually people up and about sitting outside and enjoying a drink but not too bad. There didn’t seem to be any entertainment of any sort that we saw but that was fine by us. There were a few kiddies but not too bad. I don’t really think it was a hotel aimed at them. It seemed to be slightly older couples which was better for us.
The transport links were OK, buses were quite few and far between at odd times but the car ferry that went across to Moderno were frequent and fairly cheap @ 10 Euros return per person. The area had lots of seats to sit and watch the world go by. There was singing as entertainment in the main town, mainly seemed to be at the weekend. Lots of places to have a bite to eat or a coffee. Couple of very nice ice cream shops. I know we were in Italy but didn’t really find the lake to be very cosmopolitan. You had a choice or pasta and pizza or for a change pizza or pasta with the odd fish/meat dish. I was missing the good old English food of curry/Chinese (Hee hee!!) by the end of the week!!
Overall not bad, would love to go back to the area but not necessarily the Romeo, but wouldn’t say never.

Reviewed 28 September 2011

We went in September 2011 for 7 nights and found the hotel, clean and quiet. We did not pay extra for a balcony room, but heard from a couple staying in a balcony room that the guests below in the garden were noisy until very late at night. Our room was small, but very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. They had turned the air con off for the winter already, so it was a little muggy if you didn't keep the shutter closed all day! Dinner was great but be ready for massive portions! You have to put your napkin in an envelope each night which was not something i'd seen before or explained in any way, i only gleaned that by watching others! Location of the hotel is perfect for Torri itself, the bus stops and access to anything you could need. The hotel accommodate our week of very early starts for the various trips we had planned and were very helpful. On the last day we met a couple who had been going there for 12 years, and i can see why. For good value and a comfortable base for your holiday it is ideal. We had Bardolino wine and water at the dining table every night a few cocktails in the bar and after 7 nights the bill was only €67!

Room Tip: avoid the balcony apparently its noisy late at night!

We stayed at Hotel Romeo as it was the hotel with the Heights and Sights of Northern Italy package. The hotel is lovely, the hotel staff very friendly, the restaurant staff very accommodating, two of us were vegetarians and our waitress went out of her way every night to cater to our needs.

We had a room in the main building, which was lovely, clean and had everything we could need.

The hotel is in a great location, just a short walk away from the harbour and centre of Torri Del Benaco, the bus stop is just a short walk away, and very easy to use. We found it really easy to get to any location on the Lake, just a short bus ride is Garda which has a frequent ferry timetable to most parts of the lake.

Torri Del Benaco is a beautiful gem on the lake, perfect for nightime stolls, the castle lights up, its very romantic and peaceful.

We would definately go back to Torri again and definitely would stay at the Hotel Romeo.

The hotel was pleasant, but small rooms. Its better to take an appartment that lies in the garden of the hotel, Iif you like some space. The food was between normal and good and the staff was very friendly. A fine hotel for a cheap price.

Typical Italian hotel in a nice quiet location away from the main lake road but only a minutes walk from the centre of Torri.
We had a room in the main building which was basic but clean and had everything we needed.
The hair dryers can be obtained from reception and the shutters work very well blacking out all external light at night.
The half board was plentifull and any bottles of wine or water that are not finished are marked and on your table the following night.
You are allocated the same table every night and you choose from the menu in the morning for the evening. We had planned to go out the one night but it poured of rain 10 minutes before dinner but no problem the hotel let us dine in with no problem what so ever, which was very nice of them because we had not pre-ordered.
Torri is very quaint and almost unspoilt. Lovely castle, museum and always something going on at night.

Room Tip: We requested a balcony, from Crystal Lakes, but was not allocated one on arriva even though the invo...
