Dont be fooled by the exterior of this hotel its one of the best hotels me and my family have stayed in.We booked a room with no view or balcony in the description but on arrival found we had a room with a lake view which was stuuning.We had a free bottle of plonk with compliments free wi- fi and free soft drinks from the minibar.The room was huge and spottless with toiletries topped up everyday.(take note uk hotels).The restaurant upstairs was the best in the resort for price and quality and again beautiful views of the lake.Pizza 6 to 8 euro ,wine 2-50 euro.The staff were really helpful and there was a nice bar again with decent prices and free buffet at times .There was also a happy hour between 9 and 10pm with 30% off.Free bike hire was good for riding around the resort.There is a small indoor pool which charges 10 euro pp for 2 hours but well worth it in the heat.Its a ten minute walk to the centre with a few bars and restaurants and a little further to the lido and marina.Would stay here again no problem.If your renting a car at Bergamo airport use Firefly as they have a full to full fuel policy dont get ripped off by the other firms who charge a full tank of petrol .Book this hotel in Lovere you will love it.
This hotel was perfect for an affordable, short and convenient getaway.
Just a few things about the whole trip left a slightly sour taste in my mouth - it wouldn't take much to improve them.
Firstly, our room has been treated with ammonia (some sort of deep-cleaning treatment??) - despite leaving our window open throughout the stay - we could not get away from the smell! With a little forward-thinking, the hotelliers might have aerated the room for us for few days beforehand.
Secondly, the breakfast - I would favour improving the quality and reducing the quantity - various baskets of croissants, cake, biscuits, yoghurt. Although there was a wide variety - only half of the choices were remotely appetising.
Thirdly, the lighting of the place - the interior was quite grand but the lighting gave the place a sinister feel - reminiscent of "The Shining"!!
Nevertheless, the chambermaid service was impeccable - our rooms were cleaned to the highest standard I have ever seen. The receptionists were always very helpful and friendly. As just a safe haven for the night, I would have no qualms about going back there :) many thanks!
