Just a two minute walk from the colourful harbour and cobbled centre of Malcesine sits the gorgeous Hotel Excelsior Bay. With its panoramic views of the lake and high levels of service, it's no wonder this property has been a favourite with Inghams guests for many years. Tucked away in the craggy shore of northern Lake Garda at the quiet end of the promenade, this striking hotel is still within comfortable walking distance of the centre, just a few minutes along the flat pathway.
The rooms simple, offering modern amenities in a relaxed and comfortable space. One of the highlights of the hotel is its lakeside terrace directly over the water where breakfast can be taken in the warmer weather and dinner is served each evening by the lapping shoreline.
The restaurant at the Excelsior Bay serves Italian cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients and fresh menus each day. Everything from fresh seafood with langoustines and fresh salads to homemade pasta dishes. The bar lit each evening by candlelight spills out onto the terrace and is the perfect setting to look out over the water with a delicious ice cream or indeed an Aperol.
Close by, Malcesine town sits reminiscent of another time, its cobbled streets and steep colourful townhouses looming over the lake are full of old world charm. From the local ice cream shops to the quaint shops selling trinkets and jewelry as well as locally produced limoncello and infused olive oils, there is something here for everyone.
