Set next to a quiet piazza in the old part of Manerba, this lovely hotel is 5 minutes walk from the beautiful lake. A couple of pleasant restaurants lakeside, a couple more about 15 minute stroll along the lakeside walkway, and another next to the hotel itself, means that if you have no car, lunch & dinner are close by. There are also a few bars & pizzerias dotted around the lake too. The hotel & pool were lovely, quiet & clean during our stay in early July, with well furnished, air conditioned rooms. The inclusive breakfast had an enormous choice of fresh foods that catered for most tastes - lovely. The staff, particularly the manager, spoke good English as well as German and other languages, and were very pleasant and happy to help. The vast array of trips were easy to arrange through the hotel - the two we chose were excellent (Verona & Isla del Garda). Free parking for residents in the hotel car park. A hire car is a good idea to explore further afield (although taxis can be arranged), if the arranged trips aren't your thing. Coffee, tea & water can be purchased throughout the day at the bar as a kettle etc is not available in the rooms. However there is a mini fridge with bottled water provided upon arrival.
Pros: The pleasant & efficient staff, the quietness of the hotel & pool, the close situation to the lake, and the array of trips available.
Cons: Tea & coffee making facility in the room, as well as an iron & board are all I can think of!
Location: 5 mins from lake,restaurants, boat & pedalo hire, walkway all along the lakeside. No shops apart from a mini supermarket which shut at lunchtime.
