The best hotel we have ever stayed at (with us both working internationally for 20+ years, that is a lot of great 5* hotels!). To summarise simply; a stunning hotel in a wonderful location with unpretentious but exceptional service, where you are made to feel like a special friend of the family. While all of the team were fantastic, we... More

This is a stunning hotel with gorgeous gardens and panoramic views across the lake. Immaculate interiors and extremely friendly and attentive staff. Breakfast table is superb and pool is great. My only reservation is that we went for a quiet break and the hotel was frankly overrun with German families with young, noisy children. What started as a relaxing breakfast... More

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

Dear Sirs, We really regret that your experience at Bella Riva was not in line with your expectations. Our aperitifs are very appreciated by our Guests especially for the care that Enzo and his team dedicate in preparing them. We only use the best fresh ingredients on the market to provide snacks and small appetizers that should always be served... 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
