Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Nestled in the heart of lively Bardolino, Hotel Catullo boasts a wonderful harbour front location with views over the crystalline waters of 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. The food itself is a feast of hot and cold options with a lean towards more continental fare such as fresh pastries, local meats and cheeses and of course, Italian coffee. Whilst the Catullo is a bed and breakfast hotel only, it does house a superb pizzeria which is open for both lunch and dinner where 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 Lago di Garda.

In the cozy hotel grounds, you'll find a small swimming pool and sunbathing terrace surrounded by trees and flowers. The pool sports a small whirlpool which is ideal for some rest and relaxation after a long day exploring the colourful promenades.

With the ferry port close by, Hotel Catullo is the ideal base for those wanting to explore the rest of Lake Garda. Just a stone's throw from the front door is the ticket office and ferry dock where boats can take you down to the turquoise waters of Peschiera or up to the rugged terrain and Medieval castles of Malcesine.

Transfer time: approx. 45 mins by coach.
