I'm not really a traveller, stayed in about 15 hotels in my life, but this one is by far the best. Remained there only one night, the boat ferries stopped for the winter in the week before. Great breakfast with huge variety and pressed orange juice (as others reviewers stated). If that wasn't enough for the off-season price, my friend and I bought a supermarket 5-euro wine and asked for a bottle opener. The super friendly staff not only openned the bottle, but gave us an ice bucket and wine glasses, free of charge and without us asking for it! A really incredible service. Recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the neighbour cities, truly a great experience.

Perfect location, in the centre of Desenzano, with a great choice of restaurant's, from Italian, Japanese, and Chinese. The hotel has beautiful view's of the lake, with Lovely staff, and would recommend a massage there, he was very good(I forgot his name).
Worth paying a little extra money for a room upgrade, we did, and it was worth it.

This hotel is in the perfect location within easy walking distance of the local amenities. The room was a good size with excellent views of the lake with the added bonus of a balcony. Breakfast catered for everyone and had a very good selection. The staff were friendly and helpful.

At the Mayer and Splendid you get the best views in town, And the hotel has history too! You can see the hotel in the old photos from over 100 years ago displayed in the castle. We booked a room with the lake view (do specify on booking if that is an important detail for you), which also lets you see the little marina in front and the world going by on the promenade or square. The location is fantastic for all amenities, and transport by both train or ferry , or if you wish to go out for a walk or meal. We arrived by ferry and all we had to do is cross the road to be in our hotel. The staff was very friendly, the check in swift and with a big smile. After leaving our bags in the room, we returned downstairs to have chilled drink with lake view just outside the hotel. The room was as advertised, clean, good size, with coffee and tea facilities and a very large bathroom. This hotel is very good value for the facilities and location it offers. Breakfast, which includes a decent selection of both cold and hot cooked food, could be eaten both inside and outside by the lake promenade, which was a lovely experience. If you want to enjoy the heart of this lovely town, The Mayer is a great choice!

Lovely Hotel. Room and bathroom were clean as advertised in the photos and, as requested, we got a room with a lovely view looking over the piazza and lake. Service was friendly and breakfast was good - we had cooked eggs and bacon, fruits, cakes and pastries, and so on, and the option to sit inside or outside by the lake.

This hotel is particularly good if you are planning on arriving to Desenzano by ferry - it is right opposite where the ferry stops!
Thank Jessica J
