garda in lake garda
on arrival my suitcase went missing with around twenty others. i was reunited with my case 24hrs later. lage garda is a great place for a hoilday. the hotel was more of a restaurant than a hotel and had no reception desk or staff. the room was very small but comfortable and clean. the hotel is in a gtreat position right on the lake.

Resort of Garda is fabulous and Hotel Giardinetto great!! Though only 2* and the room basic it was spotlessly clean and food excellent!! Good choice from menu and staff really helpfull. Don't mistake the owners lack of English as being rude their not rude just Italian!!
We had two organised trips out one to Venice which I highly recommend the other to Verona which I don't recommend!! Be brave and just get the local bus and do it yourself!
The ferry's are great for getting around the Lake ask about return fares works out much cheaper.
The Thomas Cook rep in Garda is a great source of local info.

Rooms very small but were kept clean with towels changed daily etc. good aircon. Location superb, right on the edge of Lake Garda, no problem with oversleeping as bed poor and it's quite noisy due to deliveries in mornings and very audible sounds of flushing loos etc. The cleaning staff were friendly along with one or two of the waiters but the owners were terrible, surly and ignorant. We were looked upon as something of an inconvenience, The buffet breakfast was a disgrace, food left uncovered and unchilled, with sparrows coming in and helping themselves! It really is a restaurant that lets out the rooms above, there is no guest lounge or bar area. Local bus transport sporadic and unreliable. Trains infrequent but at least ran on time.
