Upon the completion of an ambitious renovation, a majority of the hotel’s high-ceilinged guest rooms will offer resplendent lake views which can be enjoyed from private balconies.

The traditional town of Gardone, located on the western bank of Lake Garda, sits against a backdrop of scenic mountains. Red clay roof tiles adorn the buildings throughout the town, including Grand Hotel Gardone Lake Garda, which is one of the most prestigious addresses along the Gardone Riviera. The hotel has been a key landmark on the lakefront since 1884, welcoming many cultural icons throughout its history. Gardone and nearby Salò offer guests cultural attractions including a number of charming local restaurants, bars and shops, as well as a ferry port for guests to take boat rides across the lake.
