I've been here for a long weekend and there's nothing bad to say about the hotel. The food was great at the restaurant, a big breakfast buffet and good service. Some of the rooms are quite small but still good enough for a comfortable stay with a small tv, fridge and balcony. Another plus is the beautiful view on the... More

Lovely hotel, nice spacious rooms (the road is noisy until about midnight, but with the windows closed, no problem). Very clean. Lovely garden. Nice, attentive staff, charming and efficient manager. Food o.k. but nothing special. Pasta dishes overcooked, as well as the fish. I had the feeling that some dishes were kept warm, instead of being cooked when ordered. As... More

We had the good fortune to stay at Hotel Bellavista for 5 days and we can't praise it highly enough. From the moment we arrived in town we were collected by the hotels minibus and whisked up the mountainside to a spotlessly clean room with a spectacular view. Lake Maggiore is of outstanding natural beauty and the hotel was ideally... More

This lovely hotel belongs to the Swiss Touring club, the leading drivers association. It is very renowned and certainly deserves its reputation. The view on the Lago Maggiore is stupendous from the rooms and the restaurant. The staff is very friendly, the food delicious and the gardens amazing, almost like a botanical garden with many flowers all year round.

We came back the 4th time. Family (2 kids 8 and 9 years old) and friends. It's just perfect. Nice rooms - bungalow style - always 3 rooms together. Looks like a park on the mountain. From nearly every room a nice view over the lake on Locarno/Ascona. The staff is lovely, nice and attentive. Nice terrace to sit outside... More

Hotel Bellavista is a 3 star hotel slightly above Lago Magiore. In my opinion you need a car as the bus down to the town and lake (which stops just opposite the hotel) runs only every 2 hours but the times connect with the boats to various lovely places like Locarno or Ascona. Also the last bus arrives at 18.30.... More

Hotel Bellavista is a 3* hotel close to Lago Magiore. It is located on the left side of the lake in a small vilage called Vira. It is on the oposite side of Locarno. With a car is quite fast to get from Ascona or Locarno to the hotel. I would say that this is the only inconvenient, specily for... More

The Bellavista Hotel is a 4 star Hotel near Lago Maggiore in Ticino. It is located on a hill (walking distance to the lake 10 min.) Most rooms (ours were 22 I believe) have a beautiful lake view. The personnel is very helpful and cheerful. We stayed 4 days and i can't think of one thing that went wrong.
