“Welcomed as long lost friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2010

We went back, which is often a mistake as things change, but in this case, the staff were the same which says a lot, the room we asked for we got, the Chef was new and far better than the last, the weather was laid on especially for us, what could you not like about this place?

Within half an hour of arriving, the Hotel Management knew we were ack and recognised us and gave us a great welcome, the gardener, pool man, Head waitress all recognised us while sitting outside the Hotel within half an hour of our arrival, and we were met with embraces and memories from last year.

We were even given the same preferred room, no need to ask, as we had said last year that if we came back, that would be the room we wanted...security of items no problem, cleanliness very good, changed bedding daily as they did with all the towels, food was good and plenty of it, breakfast was continental or bacon and egg, fruit, yoghurts , fruit , stewed fruit, croissants etc, evening meal was a good sized 3 courses, (too much for me).

We will be back, and as it turns out, 3 groups who were at the Hotel have been longstanding holidamakers for the past 15and 8 years, so they can't be doing too much wrong!

Torri is a quiet old town on the Lake, and a peaceful place to spend the day promenading, sipping espresso, and the odd pastry from the best Pattiserie in the town, mingle with the locals, and this year we met some lovely people who had properties in the area, and we were made to feel very welcome both by a German couple and a Scottish/German couple.


Hotel Romeo is about the only hotel in Torri that has a pool and is family owned, second generation, and third is also managing....

Stayed May 2010, travelled as a couple

receptionist was unwelcoming on our arrival. there was an empty bottle of alcohol in the corridor on approach to room and upon entering the room we found a double rather than twin beds, no toilet paper (this was given to us at the reception when we enquired- rather than put in our room) and the damaged "do not disturb" sign had been repaired with a plaster. there was dirt in all corners of the room, the walls were dirty and the balcony was dirty, even the bible had disgusting stains.
we didnt want to risk the pool. we were allocated tables at dinner which remained for the duration, the dining room although very clean and quite contemporary lacked atmosphere and the guests were crammed in and miserable.

Torri del Benaco is quiet but beautiful and lake garda is absolutely stunning but this hotel was a complete let down- the worst hotel I have stayed in.

My wife and I have just come back from a wonderfull week at Lake garda where we stayed at Torri del Benaco. If you are looking for somewhere to be at the end of the day that is peacefull and relaxing, with no big crowds no head banging music etc then this is the place to be . you can just sit by the Lakeside with your feet up and watch the world go by ! There are many places to eat and drink ,you would have to be very hard to please not to find something to your taste. you can walk from one end of town to the other all on the flat in about half an hour if you rush it!! There are only about two ferrys a day ( Hence the peace and quiet at the end of it ) But if you get the morning one(about 11.20 ) you can go to the north of the lake (Riva) and be back again by 6.40. the bus is good and plenty of them but dont expect them to be on time in the busy season ( for instance if you want the 5pm one back to Torri then go for the 4pm one) We were on half board at the "Hotel Romeo" as half board was all we could get. It was ok for a week ,the food passable but on half board you miss out on all the lovley local tastes and flavours.The Romeo is only five minutes walk from the town centre so very handy for that. But do ask for a room on the "2nd or third floor with a balcony we were 1st and just miss out on a view of the lake!! DO NOT go for the annex unless you like being up half the night or awake at the crack of dawn. The bus to Garda takes about twenty minutes wher you have many more ferrys to chose from & people wanting them so go early!! Would we go back to Torri? without a doubt,But on half board or an appartment.

September 20 - Torre del Benaco. The hotel Romeo, where we stayed for 11 nights was a family run hotel. The hotel was clean. We stayed in the sort of farmhouse type of accommodation, overlooking the pool and mountains (quite compact). To get to the hotel, It is a bit of an incline from the main road, but not too far if you are agile. Mostly the hotel staff were friendly. The restaurant staff were very nice and the meals were fine, (as we had full board). There is no entertainment in the hotel, apart from a TV which only seemed to be on when the football was on, which was ok with us. The area itself down by the bay is really nice, shops, castle, bars and cafe/bistro's and some restaurants. The time of year we were there though it was quite quiet and very little or nothing going on in the evening. The bus service is awful, not regular at all and the ferry's were few and far between, although this may have been the time of year we visited. Saying this we travelled through our tour operator to many other area's from there and had a lovely time. Garda and its surrounding towns were lovely and very scenic.

Having stayed in Garda in summer 2006, we decided on a return visit to the lake in 2007, but wanted somewhere different, and perhaps a bit quieter. Having looked in a couple of brochures, we came upon Hotel Romeo in Torri Del Benaco, and as it looked ideal, we booked it directly with the hotel. The process was remarkably easy and laid back- so much so that I wasn’t convinced that it was confirmed until we arrived!
We were met by a coach at the airport, as arranged with the hotel- the driver was meeting 3 families, and took each of us to our destination free of charge. I’m not sure whether or not the hotel covers that cost, but it wasn’t listed on our bill, so I assume they have some sort of arrangement. The hotel is one block back from the main road through Torri, in a very quiet spot, yet only a 5-minute stroll from the centre of the town. It’s a fairly small hotel with 3 floors, and we were lucky enough to be on the third floor in a room overlooking the pool. We had wonderful views of the lake and the town, and also the hills that rise up behind Torri. Ask for room 310 if you book the hotel- the balcony was almost as big as the room! Only 3 rooms had such a big balcony, and it felt like a luxury.
The double room was fairly small, but it had plenty of cupboard and wardrobe space for all our stuff, which I always think is more important than floor space. The doors to the balcony had shutters, which were ideal during the daytime, but all rooms had very efficient air conditioning, so cooling down wasn’t an issue. Our son had a single room, which was quite spacious, but didn’t have a balcony. The bathrooms were compact, but pretty much as you’d expect in holiday hotels. Towels were changed daily.
We booked half board, but the hotel didn’t mind if we went out for dinner instead of eating in- no charge for those nights of course. But staying in was just fine- no dish was repeated in our two-week stay, and the four course dinners were of very high quality. Each started with anti-pasta (on the table when we arrived), followed by three courses, which we selected at breakfast each morning- every course had a choice of at least five dishes, so it was sometimes difficult! They also had a good salad buffet every night. The wine list was comprehensive, and they also had a good choice of soft drinks. Although most diners were seated by 7:30pm, we weren’t rushed through dinner, and they never started to clear the buffet before everyone had left. Breakfast was also a buffet, and that was all done at a leisurely pace too. They served cereals, fruit, pastries, rolls, cheese, ham, boiled eggs…..all the usual continental breakfast food. They also cooked eggs to order.
All the staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. All areas were clean and well kept, and the pool was lovely- there always seemed to be enough sun beds to go around, and there was a garden area as well as the poolside for relaxing. For the more energetic, there was also a tennis court. A poolside bar served well-priced and good quality food at lunchtime. It was a family oriented hotel, with the majority of visitors being German, but there was a range of nationalities, and it appeared that some people returned year after year.
Torri is a delightful town- small, quaint and quiet, although there were plenty of promenading people to watch at night, and lots of restaurants and bars to visit. The shops were interesting, and there were very few that were “touristy”, so it felt like we were staying in a town where people really lived. The lake is beautiful, and it’s all the more attractive for being only a 40-minute journey from Verona airport. In all, we had a wonderful holiday, which was so relaxing that I felt we were there for four weeks rather than just two!
