Nestled in the heart of lively Bardolino, Hotel Catullo boasts a wonderful harbour front location with views over Lake Garda. Family run and renowned for its warm and welcoming atmosphere, the Catullo is as eclectic as it is quaint with antique statues, paintings and even the odd Vespa scattered around the communal areas. The classic rooms in the hotel sport a vintage Italian design creating light and airy spaces whilst the recently renovated Superior Rooms are stylish and comfortable. Each room also has a balcony with some boasting views of the lake, others of the town. 

Breakfast is served each morning in the dining room with large bay windows opening onto the front terrace. A superb pizzeria is open for lunch and dinner and Inghams guests enjoy a discount. This lakefront restaurant is the perfect spot to enjoy one of their stonebaked pizzas with an Aperol or Hugo as the sun sets over the lake. In the cosy hotel grounds you'll find a small swimming pool and sunbathing terrace surrounded by trees and flowers. 

With the ferry port close by, Hotel Catullo is the ideal base for those wanting to explore the rest of Lake Garda. Regular ferries can take you down to the turquoise waters of Peschiera or up to the rugged terrain and medieval castles of Malcesine.
