“Good value hotel in beautiful location”
Reviewed 26 October 2010

This hotel was cheaper than most on Garda and we thought it gave excellent value. Our room was clean and reasonably spacious with a balcony and mountain views. Breakfast was fine - not an enormous variety but plenty to eat from a self-service buffet, and evening meals were simple but delicious. Service from the owner and his family was always friendly and attentive. The grounds and pool looked lovely but the latter was closed for the off-season when we stayed. The hotel is in a mountain village a steep drive a few kilometres up the hill from Gardone Riviera, an ideal starting point for mountain walks. There are other restaurants in the village if you want some variety.

We (my husband and two young kids) stayed here in peak season of August. However it was a haven of peace and tranquility. The pool in the garden just seems to go endlessly into the mountains. In fact on one day we watched some abseilers come from the top of the mountain to land by the side of the pool.

The pool is fenced off so no worries with little ones. There is loads of room for games in the garden. We often wandered into the village bought some bread ham cheese tomatoes and had a picnic in the garden for lunch. There was also a bar/pizzeria within walking distance.

One night we ate in the hotel restaurant and that was great too. It's simple cooking but homemade and local.

The room we had did not have a balcony but a lot of the rooms do have with lovely mountain views. The rooms were spotless and very spacious.

One day we walked down to the lake (about 30 mins) and caught the bus back up to the village.

But the main thing which I loved about the hotel was the relaxed vibe of the place. It is family run and has been for 3 generations and the host is fantastic and we felt like we were staying in their home. Couldn't be more helpful.

We had a fantastic week and the kids loved the pool and swinging chair in the garden.

If you are looking for peace, great home cooking and value for money in a friendly family-run hotel, then this is the place for you.

We spent three nights at half board and always looked forward to our evening meal. The quality of the food was exceptional for the price and we had two outstanding local wines recommended by the proprietor.

The room and hotel common areas are at the upper end of what you would expect at this price level and the lovely outdoor pool surrounded by mountains was a real treat.

If you want a quiet location just ten minutes up from the lake front, then this is the place for you. The friendly and knowledgable owner also speaks excellent English.

First thing first, this hotel is a 10 minute drive up a mountain road from Gardone Riviera. However, to me thats all part of what makes it special. You are away from the lake side but you still have all the views, and easy access.
We found the hotel owners to be excellent hosts and by the time we left considered them as friends. The accomodation was clean and tidy, not overly luxurious. The bed was made every day and the room tidied, you can't ask much more.
The hotel setting is ideal, silent nights and cooler than the lake so a bit more comfortable. The hotel pool was clean and during our stay always quiet.
The hotel has a restuarant which provides a wide range of food, and all to a high standard. During our stay they also catered for a large party of former Alpine soldiers. An excellent day was had by all.
The hotel was excellent value for money, and I would happily recommend this hotel to my friends and family, and look forward to return to it in the future.

We stayed here for a weekend in September - it is located above Gardone Riviera in a quiet little village called San Michele. Hotel is signposted from gardone so is easy to find and about 10mins up a typical mountain road with amazng views of the lake.
Hotel is very clean and owners charming. Breakfast was good although no fresh orange juice as always at Garda. Very peaceful and pool is lovely. Showers a real let down though. Water takes a long time to run through and then the shower head sprayed water everywhere but on your head!! at €64 per night though it really was good value.
