“Very good and can do even better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Just back from one week in the Grand Hotel Liberty with the Travel Department, which was very enjoyable. This is a fine hotel, well situated near the centre of Riva del Garda, a scenic town on Lake Garda with lots to see and do. It is an old style building, but with a beautiful bar downstairs and a fabulous spa. The spa is one of the greatest assets in this hotel and it costs just 8 euros for your stay to cover the cost of towels and robes. The bedroom, we stayed in was tired and needs urgent updating. The air conditioning worked but as it switched on and off during the night it did on occasion keep us awake. However, that said we were comfortable and the room was well cleaned each day and towels were changed daily also. As our package included breakfast and dinner each evening we ate in the hotel dining room. The food on offer was adequate but not exciting e.g. There was very little fish available with the exception of tuna and salmon...another evening one of the main course options was an omelette! To be fair some starters were appetising as were some desserts. We did not understand however why one could not have a coffee in the dining room after your meal? Some staff were very professional and efficient and food was served quickly. Others seemed to be distant and more interested in getting their assigned tables cleared as quickly as possible. Breakfast was adequate and the hot food available was most welcome. The outdoor swimming pool area and garden are excellent facilities, well maintained and spotlessly clean. There were always enough chairs (loungers) around the pool and the views from it are spectacular. The advantages of this hotel are its location near the centre of RIva del Garda, the views from it, it's facilities such as pool and spa and it's relaxing ambiance. However, we felt that some improvements could make this hotel outstanding such as updating bedrooms and corridors and improving the quality and variety of food available. A quiet word with some staff might not go astray either. Would we return...most certainly yes!

we arrived back today from an 11 night stay in the grand liberty hotel ,what can i say top notch fantastic food every night a new menu . Food was cooked to perfection ,a very relaxed atmosphere in the hotel made our stay stress free.Our room overlooked the pool with a fantastic view and two balconies great. The pool was immaculate, kept clean with a robotic cleaner. Now speaking fluent italian thanks to the great restaurant staff. Ideal location a nice stroll to the centre of town great will definately be back.

Room Tip: we were in room 125 corner room

This summer I and my wife had suite, and it was worth of all euros. Room was very large and view was excellent. This time we tried spa and Finnish sauna, and I must say that it was the second best sauna in a world, because we have the best! (We are Finnish). The ladle which you throw water is more like a spoon, but we will come again next summer and we'll bring you a real steam ladle. Staff in this hotel is very helpful; they listen all your hopes and fulfill them. I don't know do they have meeting every morning and they check if someone is coming again, but many of them said that welcome back, and they remembered us from last summer. And this hotel was a surprise to my wife, because at first we booked an another hotel, but she liked so much this hotel so I made her surprise booking this hotel, and lady in front desk was surprised that we came again, but if hotel and staff is like that there are no reason to take another hotel than Grand Hotel Liberty when you visit Riva del Garda.

We have just had a weeks stay in Riva, staying at the Grand Hotel Liberty. The staff were very friendly and our waiter for most of the stay was 'Kannon'. He was always very helpful and kept us entertained! He also recommended a lovely local wine. I do agree with some of the previous comments that the public rooms and areas are lovely but that the bedrooms do look a little tired! Our room was always kept very clean and tidy by the maids, but was in need of some new bathroom fitments and update of furniture etc. The hotel is in a very convenient location ideal for the shops and the ferry port. We travelled with my elderly mother who was in a single room with a shower over the bath. The so called shower screen was about 6 inches wide and not much use. She felt very uneasy using this shower over the high bath so she used our seperate shower cubicle each day. Luckily she was situated close by! All this said it was an enjoyable stay. Thank you all at the hotel.

I stayed at the hotel from 30 June to 7 July with my mum and my son. The hotel is beautiful. We wanted to stay somewhere where there would be fewer younger children and this was perfect. The staff were all lovely. They accommodated us when we had very early morning starts, and opened the dining room so that we could have breakfast before we set out for the day. The pools were amazing. Never busy at all - very relaxing. We paid 8 euros each to use the indoor spa facilities, which was well worth it! The rooms, although in need of up-dating, were fine. The air con did work and was essential! The ensuite facilities were good, although the shower over baths really need bigger screens - we soaked the floor every time we had a shower as they were tiny. Otherwise the rooms were fine. The food was very good and the waiters etc were always lovely. The hotel is very close to the town centre, but we didnt hear much noise in the hotel and around the pool which was great. We would have liked the option to eat dinner on the terrace in the evenings, as we did at breakfast time. Riva has lots to offer and is beautiful. The Liberty is in the older part of Riva which is the best part. We would definitely go again to the same hotel and have already recommended it to friends. Thank you everyone at the Liberty, you helped to make our holiday amazing! :o) I hadnt had a foreign holiday for 18 years and so I really enjoyed every moment!

Room Tip: We were in 410/11/12 which are on the ground floor and a few steps from the back exit out to the out...

Old hotel,very clean. staff great,some going well beyond the call of duty. Few power outlets the usual european power adapter did not work, very helpful young man at reception provided a replacement.Free wifi throughout the hotel.Rooms no baths only showers. Great to have air conditioning (some of the group complained of it being very noisy but we were in a newer part of the hotel and it was unobtrusive). Room with balcony at small extra charge was great. Riva del Garda is beautiful crystal clear lake water at the foot of the mountains dozes of small white boats on the water it was like a film set. Are very clean, no litter evident. Liberty well located about 5 minute walk from small town centre, we slept soundly every night. You can travel on boat to other small towns with a daily ticket being the best value. We were with the travel dept and must compliment guide Renata very knowledgeable with beautiful voice, gave us lots of useful tips e.g. parts of town where locals eat and where to get best value etc.

Room Tip: People in oldest part of hotel complained of Noisy air conditioning. Breakfast on terrace beautiful...
