The drive as we approached alongside the lake was beautiful as the closer we got the more relaxed we became. The hotel is 5* but not an old fashioned pompous affair but rather a warm and friendly hotel with bags of Italian style. We are instantly at home, the wife smiles and relaxes noticeably as we are given the tour... More

Location is great, we had a car and visited many local towns in the vicinity. The walk into Gardone is quite long, maybe 30 minutes. But not as issue as there are plenty of restaurants in closer proximity than the centre of Gardone. There is also a small ferry port next tot the hotel so you can visit other towns... More

Superb hotel. Very spacious grounds and pool area with great views out on to the lake. There is also a small jetty to jump straight into the lake for a swim. The rooms are comfortable with electronic lighting and blinds. We had a balcony with lake views which was fantastic. The staff were excellent - attentive service at the restaurant... More

We loved this small 23 room hotel. Opened in 2010 after a 2 year complete makover. The interior is modern in a classic building. Great breakfast. Very nice pool with a amazing view just steps from lake Garda. The service is informal but top notch. We realy felt like house guests. Excellent restaurant. They also have a good kids menu.... More

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
