Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Splendid Palace Limone sul Garda
Stayed at the Splendid 14th-28th July 2004 with Inghams, our 2nd time on Lago di Garda but 1st time in Limone. What can I say other than this was the best 2 weeks holiday we've ever had. The hotel was indeed splendid in ALL aspects, but special mentions for the wonderful staff (everyone was so helpful, polite & happy in their work), the fantastic food (despite other comments on here, there was plenty of choice and it was all delicious) and the absolutely stunning views over Limone & the lake. Our advice would be to ask for a room on a high floor to take advantage of the views from the balcony. Things you must do while being situated towards the north of the lake are: a trip to the Dolomites, the city of Bolzano and the South Tyrol region which was formerly part of Austria and doesn't feel like Italy at all. The landscape in this part of the world is truly breathtaking. One final note is that we would recommend Inghams to anyone. Heather the rep was so enthusiastic and had an infectious laugh, and they have a direct coach link to the and from the airport, i.e. no time consuming pick-ups in other resorts around the lake.
We couldn't have wished for a better hotel - have returned this year and have now booked for next June. The staff are friendly and helpful - cleanliness is amazing - our rooms were left spotlessly clean every day - the bar and restaurant staff spent their spare moments cleaning all the glass and mirrors everywhere every day. Food was very good - all buffet service so you could have as much as you wished of any particular course. Drinks (including wine) at the evening meal were free. Dessert was a bit unimaginative some evenings but plenty of choice. We usually were able to eat out on the balcony for most meals with stunning views of lake and mountains. Limone is truly beautiful - villagey atmosphere, little boats bobbing, nice little shopping precincts, spotlessly clean streets. A coach trip to the Dolomites is well worth it while you are there, also ferry boat over the lake to Malcesine to go up to top of Monte Baldo in the new funicular lift. Breathtaking views and wild flowers at the top. Also, nice cafe for latte, etc.
We have just returned from Limone, a lovely picturesque village on the north western side of Lake Garda - the Hotel Splendid Palace was great and in a stunning location with snow-capped mountains, excellent accommodation, good choice of local dishes at dinner (plus free wine!) The Lake is amazing and Limone is certainly amongst the most beautiful of locations on the lake. Ask at your hotel Reception for the Promotion Card which allows discounts on ferries on three consecutive days. Do go up Monte Baldo at Malcesine for the wonderful views and take a packed lunch as the restaurants are not good value - you can easily spend a couple of hours at the top taking in the views! Only one disadvantage to staying in Limone - trips to Mantua, Verona and Venice, although worth doing but make for very long days. We travelled with Inghams and found their rep very knowledgeable. Tour guides also were very informative.
Only 9 weeks to go and we will be returning to the most beautiful part of Italy. We will be at the Splendid Palace Limone for the fourth year. The food is plentiful and extremely tasty and the staff are wonderful The views from the Lake view rooms are the best on the resort and the Lake itself is the most wonderful place to swim and relax. I have travelled around the North of Italy alot since I was a child as I have family dotted in various places but now we have found this place, we will not venture anywherelse
We have stayed at the Splendid on 4 occasions since 1996 and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute at this wonderful hotel. Staff great, rooms clean and smart, food wonderful and views over lake spectacular.
You could never tire of this hotel and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone, although I do agree about the steep climb up from town/ferry - not for the infirm especially during the hot weather!
Our accomodation was "allocation on arrival", and when I first heard heard the name of our hotel was "Splendid Palace" I was a bit worried - I thought it sounded like a cheap indian takeaway.
How wrong I was! My wife and I really did enjoy staying at the Splendid. In particular, the staff were always pleasent and helpful.
Although most of the rooms have a view of lake Guarda, I did hear one guest complain that their balcony looked out onto just a wall! So, if that is important to you, do make a point of stating your preference when you book.
All you could ask for
We had a wonderful week, in July 2003, at The Hotel Splendid Palace in Limone. The room was lovely, with a view of the pool and lake, and the air conditioning made it very comfortable. Food and service were both excellent. However, the very best bit was the hotel's position within Limone. Views from the hotel are just stunning, and it is a short walk to the shops and boat landing stage. We will return! We thought the hotel was excellent value for money.
What a lovely surprise we got
We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Splendid Palace Hotel following a weeks touring of Italy the previous week.We weren't really sure what to expect but what a lovely surprise we all got. A bottle of bubbly (cheap but a nice thought) in our rooms when we arrived, happy hour 6-7 with half price cocktails, free tea and biscuits 4-5, superb meals on an evening, buffet style with plenty of choice for everyone, lager, red & white wine, water, fruit juices 'on tap' and free during evening meal time.The staff were lovely and the views from all our bedrooms were spectacular, we paid the extra but well worth it!!
A memorable holiday
My husband and I stayed here over easter 2002 and were very pleased with the Hotel standard.The meals included wine ,beer and soft drinks and were excellent! Our room was comfortable and had a lovely view of the town.This is not however a hotel for the elderly or infirm as the walk to the town centre was very steep and had us both out of breath!Limone is lovely but as it is at the far end of the lake, trips to Venice etc. were a long coach journey away and we were usually the last drop off point, which meant getting back quite late.
