“Lovely holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I travelled with The Travel Department to this hotel for Christmas 2012, and enjoyed a lovely holiday, visiting Verona, Venice, the lake and a wonderful optional trip to the nearby alps. The hotel has beautiful architecture, plenty of character and friendly staff. The spa area is just beautiful. My bedroom was perfectly adequate and pleasant, but one person on the trip had a rather compact room. The food was good in parts, eg. a magnificent turbot dish, but sometimes too salty or stodgy; a mixed bag really. Christmas dinner main course was rolled turkey slices with a cheesy sauce. Mostly there were options, but sometimes a set dinner. The location of the hotel is just perfect. A few minutes walk to the beautiful town centre, or the lakeside lido and shingle beach. I enjoyed a quick swim in the cool lake on Christmas day! There are lovely walks from Riva, a flat two mile walk by the lake to Torbole or further inland to Arco. The tours to various places were well organised and conducted and overall it was an excellent holiday and a lovely place to come any time of year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bit of room!!

Good afternoon and thanks for your review !

We appreciate that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again !

The menu sometine is set depending on the contract we do with the tour operator,
and most of them are asking a gala dinner with set menu each week, and then there
was the Christmas Lunch with set menu, but you could always ask for a change.

Thanks a lot and Happy New Year !

I just loved this hotel. The location was perfect, with the town 2 minutes one way, lake 2 minutes the other direction and beautiful walks, parks adn scenery the other direction. Very picturesque setting. Ideal setting for a wonderful Christmas holiday. All of the staff members were fabulous, especially at the front desk. They were very friendly and helpful throughout our visit. Very courteous and went over and beyond to help with any of our needs. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will most likely be travelling here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view (Room 302!!), of the lake!

we enjoyed our stay here for 4 nights at this very nicely situated hotel. Just 5 mins walk straight ahead to the lakeside and 2 minute walk to the right to the old town. The reception and breakfast staff were all pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was good and varied. The downstairs pool ans sauna was very smart and relaxing. It was even nice just chilling on the outside eating area which overlooks the outdoor pool and garden. We really enjoyed our stay and found Riva to be a lovely place with plenty of other close by places of interest to visit. The only problem we had and it has nothing to do with the hotel was the bus ride back to Verona for our flight. It was a boling hot nightmare in intense heat with no aircon at all for over 2 hours. In summer dont believe how short the bus journeys will be. Believe us, they will be longer. Anyway the hotel is well worth considering when staying in Riva.

We stayed here from the 22nd to 29th September with the Travel Department who i have used on previous escorted holidays, and again their staff (Renatta and Mario) where upto the high standard you now expect from this Company. On to the Hotel, it was in a great position for everything, the Staff in the Dining Room (George & Co.) where fantastic, nothing was too much bother for them, and being in a foreign country unable to speak their language, their "english" was great. The food was very good with plenty of choice, buffet at Breakfast and A-La-Carte in the Evening. Our room on Floor 2 was of a good size, the bathroom was moderate and it was cleaned on a daily basis. I would highly recommend this Hotel for a visit to Riva-del-Garda.

Room Tip: Room Nos. 200's are very good.

Firstly, this hotel is ideally situated just a few minutes walk away from the heart of the pleasant town of Riva. The staff were always kind and helpful. Particularly in the dining room there is no problem in cooking something else if there are picky eaters. The food however was superb every day.

The rooms are not overly spacious but are comfortable and were serviced with fresh towels and cleaned very well every day. An extra bonus is that there is a computer that you can use close to reception with no charge to use the internet. As well as that there is free wifi. The access to the spa and fitness centre is €8 for the week. This includes a robe for the week. This represented good value. All in all thsi hotel is a great base when visiting the Lake Garda.

My husband and I recently stayed in grand liberty for 5 nights.. We were looked after so well. Room was clean and spacious. Excellent service. The waiters and staff couldn't do enough for us and made our stay there a wonderful experience so thank you to the ever attentive George our Irish speaking charming Cannon and Bruno for endless pots of boiling water for the Lyons tea..and all the other dining room staff who were always so nice.. Hotel is well located and very central. Cleaning staff did a great job. Food choice was good. Overall a wonderful stay and I would reccomend hotel liberty to anyone wanting to stay in Riva Del Garda. If I had a fault it would be that it was a bit noisy coming from the street in the morning but you can't have it all... Thank you Grand Hotel Liberty...

I have just booked to return to this wonderful hotel. I have stayed many times over the past few years and can honestly say the staff are all so kind and helpful. The food is excellent and plenty of it (take bigger clothes)
The location is great only a 5min stroll into the centre of Riva and it's lovely caffes restaurants and bars not to mention the shops lol
Catch a boat and visit all the other lovely places on the lake and people watch with a glass of Prosecco or a Gelato (or both)
So looking forward to May
