“Excellant Hotel and food in a lovely area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of August, the hotel is in a excellent location it takes only 5 minutes to get to the lake front and about 20 to get to the centre of Riva walking by the lake front and about 10 mins via the main road. The Hotel is clean very well presented we stayed in room 506 walked out on to the balcony and had a stunning view of the lake and mountains. We stayed in a twin room it was small but was clean and nicely decorated with ample wardrobe and drawer space, The bathroom area is also small it does have a hair dryer however I would recommend you take your own it looks like a hoover nozzle and isn't very powerfull! Board Basis is Half Board The meals are delicious breakfast is self service and is a choice of cereals, pastries, fruit & yoghurt cheese, meats & bread and to top it off also a warm buffet breakfast. You will not go hungry! Evening meals are chosen when you go to breakfast, there will be a menu on the table of that evenings choices. The 3 courses are waiter service you have a choice of 3 starters, mains and desserts also there is a full salad buffet every night which you go help yourself to, every meal was presented beautifully tasted delicious and served to a very high standard we stayed 2 weeks and nothing on the menu was repeated in the full 2 weeks of us being there, you also get water and wine included with your meal any other drinks do have to be paid for. All staff are polite, helpful & friendly. Riva is a beautiful resort and easy to walk around you can also catch the ferry to neighbouring resorts. There are ample restaurants & cafe bars where you can get a bite to eat or just a drink or a delicious Gelato and watch the world go by. Whilst we were there we did day excursions to Venice, dolomites, Milan,Florence and Verona all excellent worthwhile and booked through Thomson Holidays my tour operator. Overall a fabulous hotel a fabulous holiday and lots of happy memories!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

Last stayed here in 2008 and have to say that things are just as good now as they were then. Hotel is well kept and clean, staff are very friendly and the waiters are extremely hard working. Dinner was very good, lots of choice and excellent salad buffet every night. Breakfast was equally good with plenty of choice including fresh frut and yogurt. Hairdryer was the type attached to the wall (take your own) and as before the air-con was pretty ineffective so had to ask for a fan as temperature was 35 C during our visit. Did not use the pool although it did look inviting and took advantage of the free bikes for a trip to Arco via Torbole. You will not be disappointed with a stay at Hotel Garda. The location is good for the marina, the lakefront and a great ice cream/aperitif shop called Flora across the road (yum)!!

Room Tip: Our room was 408 and was an unusual shape so beware rooms ending in

Stayed here on a last minute break with Crystals and were pleasantly suprised by the the hotel which is in a good location for getting about Riva although only for folk who like to walk since it's a wee bit out if the centre although close to the waterfront. The food was pretty good and the free wine with evening meal ok too. We had a good room with balcony overlooking the hotel pool and towards Lake Garda. Very clean however it could do with some updating in places in particular breakfast crockery and pool towels - most pool towels were fluffy ocean blue however they'd hung on to their faded rertro orange ones as well - why? Otherwise a nice hotel with pleasant staff

Just come back from 2 weeks in Hotel Garda. We found the hotel to be very good overall. The food was excellent and varied. We had a choice of 3 main meals as part of a 4 course menu every night. Some evenings there was a gala menu with aperitifs first and we were lucky enough to have wine and water included. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint would be that our room was at the back and was noisy at times-- both from the internal plumbing and external noise of glass bottles being dumped, sometimes at unsocial hours. However this would not stop us going there again. The hotel is in a good position for lakeside walks and not too far from the centre of town where you can get lake boats and/or buses

A pleasant hotel stuckin a 60,s time warp.
Clean -cannot be faulted-- food average to good.
facilities reasonable --bikes for guests use --good.
UNABLE TO PURCHASE DRINKS WITH CASH--POOR.
Location out of town --15 minutes walk or 8 min cycle.
ENTERTAINMENT VERY POOR--LITTLE EFFORT TO KEEP GUESTS WITHIN HOTEL IN THE EVENING.
MANAGEMENT--Well if you enjoy a tv above your head in the dining room showing football fine--for the benefit of the hotels family.
Tries hard but with some up to date management could be very good.
