Grand Hotel Gardone 

Charming and refined elegance

Chic and classic, this famed hotel has played host to a number of illustrious guests.

You’ll truly feel part of the region’s history as you soak up the grandeur and style of a more elegant age at the Grand Hotel Gardone. Opened in the late 19th century, this was one of the first hotels on the shores of Lake Garda and instrumental in the development of tourism to the area. Today, the classic design, which remains true to its past, is complemented by contemporary facilities. It is conveniently located adjacent to the ferry landing, giving you easy access to other lakeside towns and villages.

Why we love Grand Hotel Gardone

  • At the heart of the Gardone Riviera, in a lakeside position the hotel is located close to pleasant cafés and restaurants.

  • Next to the hotel is the Heller Botanical Garden, home to over 3,000 varieties of plants and flowers.

  • Ideal for a morning stroll, a promenade runs along the entire length of the hotel offering beautiful lake views.

  • The hotel has attracted some high profile guests in its day including Winston Churchill. Named after him, guests can now enjoy a drink in Winnie's Bar.
