Hotel description

Built in 1884, the first hotel on the shores of Lake Garda still today exemplifies the elegant style of its time: fine stucco, massive facades and all sorts of splendor exude the charm of a century gone by without abandoning modern comfort. A total of 167 lovingly classic rooms are offered at the Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera, outfitted with air conditioning, minibar, flatscreen TV and all sorts of smaller details (bathrobe and slippers, for example). Most rooms have a balcony, many of them with a magnificent view of Italy’s largest lake. If that’s not enough, the wellness offering and beautiful outdoor pool will free your mind from stress!
Historical Hotel: Venerable facades and magnificent stucco
Austrian Luigi Wimmer discovered the Gardone Riviera village in 1875 and decided to make it a comfortable, attractive destination for other visitors—the idea of the Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera was born! Back then, intellectuals such as Winston Churchill and Paul Heyse were among the guests at this comfortable hotel, while today anyone with demanding tastes and a certain sense of aesthetic will feel at home. The building’s powerful facades, interior stucco, large windows and roof paintings are silent witnesses to past decades. On the other hand, modern facilities are evidence that the hotel owners value innovation and comfort. Interior rooms are also designed in classic Italian style.
4-star hotel: Large outdoor pool & beautiful wellness area
It’s wonderful to know you don’t have to worry about anything: that’s how it feels at the Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera, where guests can lift up their legs and just relax. You can start the day with a generous breakfast on the terrace with a view of Lake Garda, then swim a lap in the large outdoor pool and give yourself up into the confident hands of the masseuses in the wellness area. There are plenty of activities at the Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera: tennis, riding, sailing and golf are all possible in the immediate vicinity.
Food & Drink: Substantial breakfast & Italian classics
Each morning a generous breakfast buffet of countless cold and warm dishes is served—with a view of Lake Garda! The hotel restaurant offers classic Italian and international cuisine à la carte, with a beautiful ambience, also with a view of the lake. A particular bonus: the wine menu includes an assortment of more than 100 fine wines!
Location: Peaceful & well-connected
The Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera is situated on the west shore of Lake Garda, in the town of Gardone Riviera, a 15-minute walk from the Vittoriale degli Italiani museum grounds. Brescia Montichiari Airport is 20 miles away. The dock at Toscolano-Maderno is a 10-minute car ride away—ship rides on Lake Garda set off from here.
