Hotels in the same category, even in the same resort, can vary considerably in character, ambience, service and facilities and may not offer the same staffing levels and facilities, or be as well maintained. it must be bourne in mind that cost is a good indication of standards, particulary when comparing hotels in the same star rating.

About the hotel
- SETTING & STYLE
Built in 1884, the Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera is still the leading hotel in the area, with its sense of timeless elegance and style. Renowned as the most fashionable hotel on the Lake, its famous guests have included Winston Churchill, Gabriele d'Annunzio, and Somerset Maugham, and it rumoured that Vladimir Nabokov was inspired to write ‘Lolita’ after spotting a young girl here!
After the Second World War, Sir Winston Churchill was a frequent guest of the Grand.
The gardens of the hotel are particularly beautiful, due to the many colourful plants and flowers, creating a most wonderful relaxing atmosphere in a tranquil setting. There is access to the Lake from the gardens.
