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.

Stayed for two nights the beginning of April. Rooms were modern, clean and bathrooms beautiful (Molten Brown toiletries a lovely touch). Communal areas were well designed and stylish. Pool was too cold when we stayed, but would be ideal if a little warmer. Aperitif oversized and delicious. The location was great, directly on the river, walking distance to lots of... More

My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights in early May 2015. The service was exceptional, with all members of staff friendly, welcoming & willing to do that extra bit to make a stay here something special. When you wanted a drink, food, to arrange a massage or any other request there was always someone available. Having seen my... More

My husband and I stayed at Bella Riva with his parents for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it. The location is perfect - right on Lake Garda - you couldn't want anything more. The rooms are beautifully designed - very spacious and comfortable. One could very easily stay in their room all day to relax and enjoy the view... More

Just back from 4 nights at Bella Riva Hotel, staying with my family (inc. 2 year old) on vacation. All the feedback I read prior to our stay suggested high levels of service in a boutique, friendly property (20+ rooms), it didn’t disappoint. Renovated 6 years ago, the quality of hotel, beds, bathrooms and general facilities are well deserving of... More

We had a hard time finding the hotel, they changed the street name, but found it behind a great old wall and drove into their private parking area. That is when it all began.... the service from the start was outstanding. They came and got our bags, got us checked in very fast, the front desk staff is outstanding and... More

This is a very welcoming hotel. They make you feel as though you are part of a family. The open kItchen is a novel idea and the meal which was the chef's choice was excellent. The service was very good and the staff are friendly. The waitress's choice of wine was an excellent match with the meal. However, the director... More
