Have just returned from a week at the Bellavista and have to agree with several other reviews, that this is a hotel that is in need of some TLC. We had room on third floor with lake view, which is fabulous, but no balcony. The room was very small and the fittings are old fashioned - but not in a good way. The beds are small and VERY firm. No air-conditioning. On the positive side, the bathroom was large, with bath and over-bath shower, but again, although clean the bath was in need of being replaced.
The public areas are ok, but the staff, with a couple of exceptions, are not the friendliest. A request for an adaptor (my well-used and well-travelled European adaptor did not fit the plug points in the room) was somewhat grudgingly met.
The food is uninspired, with the same four boring desserts being offered every night. The hotel has a restaurant which is obviously very good and very popular, and there is a slight feeling that hotel guests are a bit of a second string.
The absolute selling point of the Bellavista is it's location - right on the lakefront. The pool, though small, is also right on the lake with stunning views.
