“A lovely friendly hotel, but not the best location”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

We have stayed in this hotel on three occasions, mainly because the staff are so lovely and the food is outstanding. The swimming pool is lovely and the service is first class. The only drawback is its location - it is three km from Sirmione and the courtesy bus does not run frequently enough, and not after dinner, which is ridiculous for a four star hotel. We would also ex pect to have internet access, even if we had to pay for it. If they can sort out these little issues, it would be perfect.

We have just returned back from a fantastic week’s holiday at the Hotel Du Parc in Sirmione. We chose a superior room with lake view, and the views from the balcony were stunning of the lake and mountains, and also to the right we could see Sirmione town and Castle. The room was great, lovely and clean (even the balcony was vacuumed), nice large shower room and air conditioning. We were on half board, and the food was excellent – in the evening you helped yourselves to salad and rolls from the buffet, and then the next 4 courses (starter, pasta, main, pudding) were served to you by very courteous and friendly waiters. Included in the holiday package was a free bottle of red or white wine, and a bottle of fizzy or still water, which was a bonus. Breakfast buffet was also excellent with lots to choose from both hot and cold. Pool was great with plenty of loungers and parasols available, and was always clean and tidy. All the hotel staff were friendly and always willing to help.

Although the hotel is about a 35-40 mins walk away from Sirmione main town, this does not cause too many problems, as it is a lovely stroll down in the morning when cooler, then when it warms up later, you can either catch the hotel courtesy bus back or hop on the local bus which stops very near the hotel. The hotel runs regular free mini bus service to and from Sirmione town (less frequent at weekends). There are lovely walks from the hotel - you can go off to the lake shore or round the little village of Colombare which has shops, bars and cafes – all about 5 mins away. We used the local bus a couple of times to go to Desenzano town, then catch the ferry back to Sirmione, which was nice. You can buy bus tickets from local Tabacs or from reception (slightly more expensive).

The holiday package included a free excursion to Verona, which most people went on. We decided not to on this occasion, as we went in 2010 and found it a long day in the heat. We did go on the Mantova and Sigurtà Park tour, which was really interesting, and the lake tour which was great driving along the lakeside roads - stopping at Lazise, Malcesine, Riva for lunch, then ferry to Limone, then back to hotel on the coach. So an ideal way to take in a few sights around the lake.

Last year we stayed in Sirmione town at the smaller Hotel Pace, and although this is a fantastic hotel too, right in town, for us the Du Parc seemed more suitable, as there were lots of other English couples to chat too in the evenings, plus the added bonus of the lovely pool for spending hot afternoons around and not forgetting …….. free wine !

We will definitely be back.

Our third visit to Du Parc. The Hotel is in a quiet location with regular public transport to Verona or Brescia and all points in between. The Hotel shuttle bus is ideal for going into Sirmione to avoid the pleasant 20 minute walk. Colombare has plenty of cafes and other stores and is literally around the corner.

All the staff are as helpful as ever and everywhere in the Hotel is exceptionally clean.

Good quality food with varied menus for the evening meals with free water and good wine.


We will be back.

My wife and I stayed in Hotel Du Parc at the end of August and I must say that we have nothing but praise for it.The food every morning and evening was always excellent as was the packed lunch when we were going on a tour of Venice.Please everybody try the tirimsu!! it is to die for!!!.I think that the one feature that sets this Hotel from the rest is the staff.From the staff at the check in desk to the maids in the cleaning the rooms,I cannot speak highly enough of them.All the waiters in the reasturant ( just mention The Dark Side of the Moon) to one of the waiters for extra helpings!!.Just visit and enjoy

I wasn't sure what to expect when we booked into the Hotel Du Parc, Sirmione/Columbare, as the brochure does not give it justice. This is a reasonably small hotel where all of the service was excellent. The choice and standard of the food was exceptional, complimented, at dinner with a free bottle of wine and water.
It is situated about a 30 minute walk from the centre of Sirmione but a regular free minibus is available, how regular depends on the day of the week, less on a weekend.
I must give a special mention to the staff and especially Fernando, nothing was a problem.
It is built near other buildings but this does not detract from the cosy atmosphere.
There are enough sunbeds for everyone.
The organised trips were excellent with plenty to see and the Verona visit was free from this hotel.
I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Best rooms for a view of the lake are 246 to 250.

We have just returned from a week at the Du Parc near Sirmione. The hotel is clean, friendly and the food is excellent. (A little too good, now back on the diet!). The location was a concern beforehand having read reviews about how far from Sirmione town centre was however, the courtesy bus ran regularly throughout the day and the local bus was just 4.80 Euros for 4 of us back to the Du Parc, But the area itself where the Du Parc is situated is about 3 mins walk to a lovely lakeside sunbathing area with windsurfing, canoeing and peddalos available, so don't be put off. (incidentally, the walk from Sirmione to the hotel is around 35 mins at a pleasant amble). Good location also for visiting Venice and Verona, which we did also. In all one of the nicest holidays I have ever had, a sentiment also agreed by the rest of the family which include a 17 and 15 yr old. I would definitely return.

We stayed at Hotel du Parc for one week in late July and had a wonderful time. We had a fantastic view of the lake from our room, and the room was immaculate and looked as if it had been recently decorated. Dressing gowns and beach towels were provided.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and could speak English sufficiently well. The restaurant staff were particulaly nice.

The food really was excellent - you choose your dinner whilst at breakfast and you get 5 courses. Everything I ate was lovely; even things I am not normally too fond of. It is refreshing not to have a buffet for dinner and there was always several choices to choose from.

The pool was nice and we managed to get a lounger everyday we wanted one, although I would say a trip to the beach is well worth it as the lake water is much warmer!

The hotel is located a good paced 20 to 30 minutes from the centre of Sirmione. There are a few shuttle buses from the hotel but none run in the afternoon and the last one back is 8.45pm so its likely you will have to walk one way at least. I wouldn't recommend the hotel if you have problems walking - just because it is not centrally located. You need to get to Sirmione for the ferries around the lake. (but not if you want to go to Verona, there is a bus stop near the hotel the bus goes past).

That said, im glad it wasn't. Sirmione can be overwhelmingly busy and it is nice not to be there all of the time and be able to escape far enough away from the masses of tourists that descend there.

Overall we were impressed with the hotel and would recommend it.
