“Glorious View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Just returned from a Travelsphere Holiday at the Hotel Benacus . The hotel has a really glorious view over Lake Garda probably one of the best in the area. The only fault is that to access the hotel there is a a very steep hill which would be unsuitable for older or anyone with walking difficulties. It takes around 15-20 minutes to walk down it!! They do offer a shuttlebus which is only 9.30 or 10.30 and return 5.30 6.30
The food is edible but unspectacular with some very strange fish and sometimes the dish did not match what was written on the menu. The staff on the other hand were very pleasant and nothing was to much trouble.
The rooms were basic but very clean in fact you could not fault the hotel for cleanliness .

In summing up this was a basic clean hotel with a spectacular view great staff just a pity about the chef.

Room Tip: Choose a Balcony and lake view

We are just back from a holiday at the hotel Benacus Riva del Garder. Hotel staff and the view could not have been better.Although a little out of town up a steep hill the use of the shuttle bus helped.ut could have been a little more frequent. Taxies are reasonable. Nothing was too much trouble for the sfaff or owners. Would definffinatley recomend it and hope to visit again.

Room Tip: Som rooms have a balconey and garden view

We have just returned from a Travelsphere holiday and despite the weather the Hotel Benacus could not be faulted. The hotel is situated at the eastern end of Riva Del Garda on Mount Brione overlooking the lake, town and spectacular mountains. It is about a ten minute walk from the Lake to the hotel up a winding road. A courtesy bus is laid on twice a day to and from the Lake. The Hotel was immaculate and the staff were very friendly especially the restaurant staff who were extremely efficient and courteous serving delightful Italian food and on the two Gala nights we were entertained by live music by very talented musicians. There is an outdoor swimming pool and plenty of sunbeds.

Have stayed at this hotel many times in the past. On this occasion went for dinner in the Restaurant over looking the whole of Riva. Fantastic views, great service and delicious food. We like to cycle up the hill to this restaurant which is located on a quiet hill side.

Room Tip: Definately a room with a sea view

If you are looking for a excellent hotel in Rive Del Garda go no further than this one.

Set in a perfect elevated position over looking the town albeit up a gentle incline of a hill that can be managed in 15-20 mins this is the one.

I can not recommend it any better than a small family run hotel with a great chef and wonderful waiting staff.
Of the beaten track it certainly is but not isolated and so worth every penny or Euro !!

Great facilitys and a super pool...........full marks to the owners and staff.

Oh i forgot the food is to die for .

Room Tip: A lake view is worth the extra.you only get what you pay for ....

This was a very nice hotel with fantastic views over Riva,but the only disadvantage was that it is on a steep hillside,there was however a short cut to the lake,,and a free shuttle bus but this was not run all day.Staff were very pleasant,but hotel could have done with extra staff at the evening meal.We were not happy with the seating arrangements at meal times but this was due to us being with the Travelsphere group
