A 5* experience second to none. Everything about the Bella Riva is wonderful. First and foremost every single member of staff we encountered throughout our stay couldn't have been more helpful, polite and engaging, they also gave us great recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. We were quite a complicated family group with people arriving on different days, in... More

Deserves the good ratings! We stayed with a small group for my birthday and were very well looked after throughout. Arrangements were made in advance for eg a small birthday cake, baby sitting etc. we ate in the restaurant twice and both times it was excellent. The bar area is elegant and relaxed at the same time, since it was... More

We have stayed both in the main hotel and in the Villa Mughetto, both are exceptional. There are not many signs leading you to the parking lot, and if you have not been here before you may miss the turn off. They speak Italian, English, and German. This hotel is very modern with Klimt prints, stunning light fixtures, a glass... More

We stayed for 4 nights, and had to drag ourselves away! The hotel is beautifully situated on the edge of the lake. The house and gardens are immaculate, the restaurant is divine and the service is first class. Breakfast was included and was also superb. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and will definitely be revisiting. We actually stayed... More

For us it was the 4th visit to this location. Once again excellent service, great hotel ambiance and breath taking location. Staff is well trained and knows how to be a good host. Over the years the quality of the hotel stayed in a top position. The restaurant was average at first but in the last years it improved to... More

We loved this hotel. Wish we could have stayed longer. We had one of the apartments and it was really nice to have the room to spread out because we had been traveling for a while. The pool area is so pretty and tranquil. We liked the hotel so much we did not leave the entire time we were there.... More

I love this hotel and was very excited about our return visit after our stay last year. This hotel is beautiful and the staff so very helpful especially the new sommelier who even went to the trouble to visit one of the other restuarants partnered with the hotel to source a favourite bottle of wine. Room was clean and comfortable... More

Dear Mrs. Kimmy, it was a pleasure to welcome both you back. I regret we didn't openly acknowledge your anniversary but because of such special occasion I can assure we went way out of our usual policy to assign you with the best possible room. Concerning the fish we work only with fresh product and we do our best to... More

We have just returned from the most wonderful four nights at Bella Riva. From the moment we walked in the door the staff couldn't do enough for us, they were polite, helpful and smiley which is a massive plus in my book! We were seen to our room, 303 which was gorgeous. The biggest comfiest bed ( amazing pillows!) 2... More

We have just returned from four nights at the BellaRiva and had a wonderful time. The staff manage the perfect balance between efficient service and friendliness. The food was excellent, the room comfortable and the surroundings beautiful. We sadly didn't see much of the sun but that means we can return again and hope for better weather! Highly recommended.
