The Bella Riva is a minimalist style hotel and, unfortunately, minimalist in its approach to service. Staying on Lake Garda, we called here for dinner (having very nearly stayed here we wanted to check it out). Pre-dinner drinks took forever and were served on uncomfortable chairs on a gritted pathway without any hors d'oeuvres, olives etc one normally expects and... More

I recently stayed here on my honeymoon and was hugely impressed with the hotel. The location, views and standard of finish are all exceptional and having explored the area quite a bit I feel comfortable saying this was by far the best hotel we saw. However what really impressed me was the ambience and friendly nature of the staff. They... More

We stated at Hotel Bella Riva as Stop2of5 on our tour of Northern Italy. The pool and it's surroundings resembled luxury and the food was incredible. We ate the chateaubriand, Tuna Salads (a must have + great value), T-bone steak & the risotto! + the included breakfast is incredible. I recommend the latte macchiato! All staff were excellent, reception, waiting... More

Having seen pictures of this hotel I liked the setting but in reality it was even better than you could imagine. The setting with views across the lake is stunning and the food delicious. Added to this the staff are amongst the nicest and attentive I have come across, especially Raffaella on reception. If you are going to Lake Garda... More

Small contemporary hotel right by the water in Gardone. Very nice staff , Italian style esp. Enzo from the bar - very lovely. Good food but local restaurants have more and better to offer. Best rooms have lake view and therewith no street noise. Very family friendly. Small pool - not heated.

We have been going to Lake Garda for over 15 years and have stayed in Bella Riva on several occasions and have returned from another enjoyable week spent in early August. Previous posts regarding the location and the high standards of the hotel are correct. The staff are great , in particular the ageless and stylish Enzo who makes the... More

Perfect location right at the lake (jump in!) with great views. Beautiful, very well kept hotel with nice big garden and large pool. Very nice rooms with great bathrooms. However, a more comfortable chair is highly recommended. Very friendly and attentive staff. Good, but not great restaurant. Very good breakfast though. Some noise from the nearby road, but soundproof windows,... More

We stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks as a family of 4 (children 4 & 6 years old). We had the Terrace Suite (Room 103). I'm actually finding it quite difficult to put into words what an amazing hotel this is. Location - stunning part of the lake with plenty of things to do near by but you MUST... More

Beautiful boutique hotel on the lake. We stayed in one of the apartment next to the main property. It is modern and well appointed. We had a great view of the lake in the main living area and the main bedroom. There is lots of windows which makes it very bright and happy. There is only one bathroom but it... More

Sitting on the balcony on the last night of our stay at this wonderful hotel and I really cannot fault it in anyway. From the moment you arrive in the cool reception area, greeted so warmly by the ever so helpfully staff, the most amazing room that makes you feel like you are actually in the lake, we were lucky...
