“What a beautiful place!”
Reviewed 12 December 2011

First of all, if you haven't been to Lake Garda, you should definetely go there! The views are splendid and they differ a lot depending on the direction you're looking at. Hotel Donna Silvia is a nice hotel, not so far from the beach (5 minutes of walk). Rooms are very big, clean and with a comfortable balcony! The hotel is near a street, but it's quiet and it's easy to relax there. Breakfast was ok, but nothing great, The staff was quite nice. The only problem was the swimming pool, which was tiny- impossible to swim in it! But the Garda's cost is not far away.

We have just returned from the Donna Silvia after one night's stay to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We took advantage of the "Hot Summer" package which was just perfect for us. Signora Helga was extremely kind and professional as were other members of the staff we met; she also upgraded our room to a Suite for the occassion. A bottle of sparkling wine on ice awaited us in the room, which thankfully, was pleasantly cool from the air conditioning, a contrast to the extreme heat outdoors. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with modern decor.
Our package included a body treatment each which turned out to be a full body massage. It was "divine"..the best massage we have ever had...an absolute "must" for anyone wishing to pamper themselves.
The position of the hotel was only a few minutes walk from the lake where we took our own sunbeds for sunbathing and where you can rent pedalos or small boats. The centre of Manerba was a short bike ride away and offers a few shops and bars, though Salo which is about 20 minutes by car is well worth a visit with lots of shops bars and restaurants, where we ate an excellent meal in the evening.
Thankfully the hotel provides an internal garage so the car was not left out in the heat.
We would definitely reccommend this hotel, especially with one of their promotional offers which are great value for money. We hope to return again this autumn when we plan to cycle around Lake Garda! :))

Although the hotel was clean, comfortable and the staff were very helpful and friendly there is not alot to do here. There is no restaurant in the hotel and the nearest restaurant serves over priced bad food. The area was like a ghost town when we visited and it was a little boring. There were only about 3 other guests and no atmosphere. The hotel is a little dated and the artwork is disturbing. All in all it lacks a bit of character unfortunately.

We arrived to Hotel Donna Silvia on the 14th of June after a heavy trip from Austria. The hotel is very nice and the people that work there are very kindly and they help us for the 5 days spent there.
The food was fantastic!!! I Knew the Cooker, a nice and funny Italian person. All the services are good. The Hotel is very close to the lake (300mt) so we spent 3 days on the beach and one time we have had the possibility to rent a Boat in the Hotel. Wonderfulllllllllllllllllllllllllllll!!!!!
I love the Garda Lake...and next year I'll be here another time and for sure I'll book in Hotel Donna Silvia.

We were there on their 4 day - 3 night package and loved every bit of it. The place is all clean and neatly taken care of. The beach that is owned by the hotel is just a walk away. We had booked into a deluxe room and it turned out to be just right for the two of us. The food at the buffet was exquisite, both veg and non-veg were served. I should say that the vegetarian dishes were out of this world. There was both wonderful Indian and western music played by various artist at dinner time. We loved every bit of our stay and will definitely go back for a holiday.
