Overall I enjoyed the holiday, despite the storms and getting soaked a few times! However, I found the hotel to be disappointing. It caters for large coach groups. The food on offer at breakfast was poor, tinned fruit for example. We bought amazing strawberries from the shop around the corner and took them in to breakfast. Apart from Danny our waiter & barman who was rushed off his feet, staff at the hotel were impersonal and there was none of the nice little touches that makes the Amalfi holiday so special. I found the trip notes not to be very accurate, there are some steep ascents and descents on the walks which felt more than 'leisurely'. The suggestions on the trip notes for the free day are poor, the castle at Simone is too far to get to. The towns of Garda and Rovereto are worth a mention. The hill from the lake to the hotel really is long and steep.
