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

A great place with beautiful rooms, excellent service and very friendly, high qualified staff. The moment you walk in to the reception, you already feel at home. We had dinner in the restaurant (terrace), overlooking the lake almost every evening. This was not planned but the food was great so why eating elsewhere. Typical italian food, very tasteful and always... More

Welcoming, polite and friendly staff and excellent service, very comfortable, warm and very clean. Wonderful views and a lovely feel to the hotel. The downside? Evening meals in the restaurant weren't at all great - very odd portion sizes, some way too big and some way too small but all padded out with bread, breadsticks and more bread. Vegetables were...

Our visit to the Bella Riva was between 16th and 23rd September 2014. We were looking at the Italian Lakes in general and always consider customer reviews on Trip Advisor and other similar sites before booking. Overall, the reviews for the hotel seemed impressive, the only adverse comment being about the nearby church bells. We travelled with friends - they... More

Had a wonderful time at the Bella Riva. We stayed in the Mansard Suite on the 4th floor. The room is spacious & quite lovely. The hotel is beautifully situated on the Lake with glorious views. The staff were very friendly & attentive. The Restaurant serves great food & the bar is well stocked with a knowledgable bar man. We... More

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
