Spent 8 days here and the rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean food was excellent with a good choice at dinner. Good selection of dishes on the menu. Outdoor swimming pool, a bit cool in October.

When we first arrived I was disappointed,the exterior looks very dated and could do with a coat of paint. The reception is nicely furnished although not very welcoming, especially if you want to take coffee after dinner, space could be put to much better use. Our bedroom was very small but clean, housekeeping was very good fresh towels every day... More

We travelled to Riva in late August 2014 for 8 days and 7 nights. We found the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Our room was on the second floor and faced the lake which was about 150 metres away and not visible from the room. The balcony easily accommodated two chairs and a table and we spent some considerable time... More

Just returned from a brilliant week at the Gardesana. Hospitality, service and pool area were excellent. Rooms a bit tired and small but spotless with nice bathrooms. Meals were lovely and varied and restaurant staff very attentive and eager to please. Will definitely be back!

We stayed at the Gardesana last week on a Travel Department holiday.The hotel is in a good location only about three minutes walk across the road to the lakeside. Riva Del Garda is a beautiful little town. The food was very good. Davide and the two lovely young waitresses were very efficient and friendly. The hotel is spotless, the pool... More
