About Grand Hotel Gardone

Built in 1884, the Grand Hotel Gardone still retains the elegance, warmth and charm of a past era when guests such as Winston Churchill graced the hotel with their presence.

Enviously situated right on the lake and in the centre of Gardone, the grand hotel's lovely terraces are a wonderful setting in which to relax and enjoy a drink whilst soaking up the wonderful panoramic views of the beautiful Lake Garda. Dinner for guests on half board is served in the hotel's restaurant with a veranda overlooking the lake. The restaurant 'Il Giardino dei Limoni' is also open for à la carte dinner.

A true highlight of the Grand Hotel Gardone is the terrace that stretches 300 metres along the lakefront, where you can relax beside a lovely heated swimming pool, whirlpool and amongst the colourful gardens. The Grand Hotel Gardone provides an excellent standard of service, making it a popular choice for those wishing to spend time on the western shores of Italy's largest lake.
