Good value for money Publié le 9 août 2013 sur Hotels.com
Although the most expensive place we stayed at for our Italian tour, it was cheap compared to other options around the Lake Garda resorts. The hotel is just on the other side of the road to the lake, but although in Sirmione, it is quite a walk to the castle area of the resort. However, it was a ideal base for our 2 night stay. On the day we arrived from Venice (by car), we had done a brief drive around the lake (stopping at Malcesine / Monte Baldo & Riva) and the second day we went to Gardaland, which is about a 20 minute drive from the hotel. On the day we left, we drove into Sirmione (nr the castle, about a 5 minute drive). Whilst not being over flash, the hotel was a nice base. We had a family room which had a double bed and 2 bunk beds. The bathroom had a shower (no bath) and everywhere was clean, which is the main thing, and had air con, whcih was a god send as it was hot. The are surrounding the hotel appeared fine to us and very nice. We went out for a little walk on the first night and felt totally at ease, no worries. The hotel is rated 2 stars, but I have stayed in worse 3 stars. The only negative points I could really pick up on are that the pillows were not very soft (pet hate of my wife's) and the towels were extremely thin (almost like table cloths), but really only minor gripes.
