It has been Gardone’s leading hotel since the 19th century when tourism first came to the area of Lake Garda. The style is inherited from this century as well as the atmosphere, with, lofty ceilings, elegant public rooms and more important the fine gastronomy. Many old celebs and VIP’s have stayed here in the past and Winston Churchill is one of them, where the bar is named after him “Winnie’s”
The lakeside position of the hotel makes you never want to go home again. Should you want to go out, you are actually in the center of Gardone Riviera and you can walk along the promenade (in front of your hotel) to the ferry station, for a boat trip over lake Garda, or perhaps to one of the cafes or bars along the lake front. Additional to this there is close by a lovely botanical garden and jus in front Isola (island) del Garda to explore. Of course the picturesque region offers multiple possibilities for interesting day trips.
We can actually conclude that this hotel is a true gem with all the services you can imagine. So if you just want to rest, why should you go out if you can stay in the lovely, large and well maintained garden around the hotel, or the sun deck with comfortable deck chairs, adjacent and looking out over Lake Garda. The swimming pool is built parallel to the lake and more over heated. Complemented by the poolbar offering refreshment service and lights snacks. There is a wellness area with massages and treatments, as well as a relax area, sauna and Turkish bath.
Then when you have your activities completed during the day, the evening can start in one of the 2 restaurants. The Lemon garden restaurant at the pool outside and main restaurant (Indoor and party outdoor on the veranda) allow you to taste the fine cuisine, with as they name it “typical taste of the lake” where they use predominantly local products. Both restaurants offer the view over the lake while enjoying the cuisine and your company of course. Furthermore you find all services and amenities that you can expect from a larger 4 star hotel, such as concierge, wifi internet throughout the hotel.
