Hotel Garden

  • Lake Garda, Italy, Garda

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Garden has a central location but it manages to feel secluded. It’s only 150 metres from the lakefront where there’s lively bars and restaurants. It also means the ferry port is close by so days out visiting other resorts is easy and stress free. The hotel’s set in established gardens and you’ll hardly know you’re in central Garda once you’re back. We love relaxing by the pool, which has plenty of space to spread out and lake views thanks to the hotel’s elevated position. 

There's plenty of walking and cycling routes right on the doorstep and lots of opportunity to get active while you're away. The hotel has city bikes that are free for guests to use and there's an outdoor gym too. You’ll also find four tennis courts in the grounds (payable locally) so don’t forget to pack your racket for a friendly game or two. 

Inside, the property is well-loved. It’s been looked after by the Zermini family since 1969 and they love speaking to guests at the weekly apretivo. The décor is traditional and cosy. Think comfy sofas in the lobby and antique pieces that have been collected by the family over the years. Each of the rooms has a private balcony and lake views are available for a supplement.

Transfer time: approx. 45 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Garda

Garda is one of the most charming resorts on Lake Garda. It’s hard not to feel relaxed when you stay here. Its wide promenade is perfect for leisurely strolls. The trees lined alongside it provide a welcome shade and the views of the lake are peaceful and awe-inspiring. The promenade stretches for miles and connects to Bardolino - this makes it perfect for cyclists too.

The medieval centre is just as pleasant to walk around. The shops here are varied and there’s a large market every Friday. Join the locals as they shop for fresh food and find some souvenirs to take home with you. In the evenings, head back to the lakefront and pick a spot in one of the many bars here. Make yourself comfortable with an aperitivo and enjoy a bit of people watching.

There’s a ferry port with regular ferries to nearby towns so getting out and about is easy. You’re also close to Verona so try and fit in a night at the opera if you can.

Venice Classic (full day)

Spend a day in this rich and indulgent city; known for its spectacular Renaissance architecture, dramatic theatre history, cobbled streets and charming waterways. It’s not to be missed! Our Venice Classic excursion allows you to explore the city with a guide as well as at your own pace. You’ll arrive there by coach and a water taxi transfer is included into the historic centre. You’ll also have the option to add on a gondola ride (payable locally). There’s plenty of time to take in sights of the Basilica, Doge's Palace, St Mark's square and the Rialto bridge in your own time – this is the perfect introduction to one of Italy's most magical cities.

Price: from £68 per person

Venice Special (full day)

Extend your day in Venice with this excursion. You’ll spend the day exploring the cobbled lanes and canals. We’ve included a lagoon boat trip that takes around an hour – you’ll get to see the Laguna islands as well as other famous spots and monuments. There is so much to see and do in the city, and with your departure time back to your hotel not until 9pm, you won't be rushed to fit them all in.

Price: from £77 per person Not available for summer 2021

Majestic Dolomites (full day)

We think the Dolomites are the most breath-taking part of the Alps and this excursion gives you the chance to embrace mountain life with one of our fantastic tour guides. It starts with a scenic drive through the exceptional South Tyrol, Val di Fiemme, Cavalese and Moena regions. You’ll then stop off at Passa Pordoi and take in the incredible views from this 2,000-metre-high vantage point. Then there’s some free time to explore the terrain at your own pace, either by taking one of the trekking paths or simply enjoying an Aperol at a refugio and taking in the views. A stop off at the chocolate box town of Ortisei is included on the way back to your hotel as well as plenty of stops for photo opportunities in this awe inspiring landscape.

Price: from £53 per person

Departs: Mondays and Fridays

Tour of Lake Garda (half day)

Get ready to explore the best of Lake Garda on this excursion – there’s so much natural beauty and picturesque towns to discover. See the spectacular mountain scenery of the north and the sunny plains of the south. Travelling by both coach and ferry, the tour itinerary for this excursion varies depending on where you start but will usually follow the famous Gardensana road lined with fragrant olive and lemon trees to reach the likes of Malcesine, Sirmione, Salò and Limone.

Price: from £48 per person

Departs: Tuesdays and Fridays

Verona (full day)

Verona is one of Italy’s most charming little cities. This day trip dips into the romance of the medieval city, reliving the scenes from Romeo and Juliet while wandering around through the cobbled streets and past ancient buildings. The impressive 2,000-year-old Roman arena is one of the best preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world and is currently home to the Verona Opera, and the marble paved shopping street of Via Mazzini leads you to the stunning Piazza Delle Erbe. The handsome city mixes its rich past and modern present with great style.

Price: from £37 per person

Departs: Tuesdays and Fridays

Milan (full day, bookable locally)

Milan is one of the most stunning cities in Italy and has transformed what comes to mind when we think of the industrial landscape. This hive of activity and industry plays host to the heavyweights of haute couture fashion, art and baroque architecture. From the towering and awe inspiring Duomo to Da Vinci's Last Supper housed in the Santa Maria delle Grazie, a guided tour of Milan is to be missed.
