This hotel is different from what you might typically find in the small towns of Umbria. It is away from town, on a hill, and surrounded by greenery. A beautiful swimming pool, archery set-up, ping-pong, tennis court, and a restaurant. You have a nice view of the lake from the property. We ate dinner there and were quite pleased. The... More

The place is very beautiful indeed with a tennis court and a swimming pool. But one of our hotel rooms had a heavy smell of mould to it, I couldn't stand being in the room. Our room on the other hand had a bathroom with an unbearable stench or urine. I'm not exaggerating. The beds were bony hard as well.... More

I spent Xmas at the Riserva Montebello in 2011, and I think I'll be making it a tradition. It's a great place to stay to get away from things. As readers may know the Hotel is located in 4 different buildings, giving groups the possibility to have more intimacy. As for the service, the staff go that extra mile to... More

In 2008 we spent a night at the Riserva with friends and had the most completely satisfying dinner of all of our many trips to Italy. Each part of the meal was delicious and the pieces all went together to make a perfect dining experience. (I am a "foodie" and I remember each course in detail.) The dining room is... More

Wonderful location, very convenient for travellers wishing to visit Lazio, Umbria or Tuscany and enjoy outdoor activities such as riding, swimming or tennis. This is a place where family, friends and honeymooners can spend a wonderful time: stunning views, beautiful terrace, outstanding friendliness, charming team, great cuisine and a genuinely romantic setting! DO NOT MISS!!!

We ended up in Bolsena seeking out La Riserva Montebello as a result of reading a Karen Brown B & B book that recommeneded it. We were able to get a room upon arrival with no reservation. We stayed in room 3 in the house on the furthest end of the property, which is Marco's house. Marco is the owner,... More

We spent our 10 year honeymooon at this fine place. Excellent food and service. The room was tidy and clean. La Riserva Montebello is the perfect place to relax and enjoy each other. The distance to sorounding towns and wine tasting is perfect.

We were not in the main hotel but on a painting trip and lodged in the Annex. The staff were great and tried hard to please. However I do not expect an annex to be 1.5 k from the main hotel. We were isolated. No way of contacting the main hotel in case of fire of sickness. Food transported to... More
