Hotel Garda - TonelliHotels
Ranked #7 of 62 Hotels in Riva Del Garda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 4, 2013

A friend and I stayed at the Hotel Garda in Riva during the last week in August. We had fully expected that our two single rooms would be small and located in the more remote parts of the hotel, so we were delighted that they were bright, comfortable and had a lovely view of the lake.They were spotlessly clean, as was everywhere in the hotel, which was light and welcoming. The food was excellent and there were lots of little extras, for example drinks before dinner or nibbles afterwards. It would have been so easy to eat too much! The staff was fantastic – helpful, friendly and very hard-working. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
The hotel is well placed for a gentle stroll into Riva along the shore of the lake with its beautiful mountain backdrop, but there is plenty for more energetic people to do, as the hotel provides bikes and the area offers lots of opportunities for more strenuous walks, too. If I had to criticise anything it would be the hairdryers, which are a little odd. It may be worth taking your own. If you like to make tea in your room, kettles can be hired from reception for €7 per week and tea bags are in plentiful supply.
All in all, we thought it was a wonderful hotel with wonderful staff in a wonderful location.

We have just returned from our 3rd stay at Hotel Garda in 4 years.
Our reason for returning is the friendliness of the staff: Hakim, Felice, Irina, Sonia, Davide in the dining room and Daniella in Reception all made us very welcome and made our stay top class.
Our room on the 4th floor was very comfortable and always very clean with wonderful views of the lake and the mountains.
We made the most of the free bicycles available to all guests and were able to cycle to Arco, Dro and Torbole.
As always, there was a great deal going on in Riva which kept us entertained every night.
We shall no doubt be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are very much quieter. Rooms facing the lake can be a little noisy...

Spent 10 nights at the Garda in July (sorry it's took too long to comment). We really enjoyed everything about the hotel. Rooms were lovely and spotless, food excellent and the pool really nice. Special little touches like Prosecco and canapés before dinner, gala nights and really friendly and helpful staff mark Hotel Garda as probably the best in Riva. Just a short stroll to the lake and resort centre. Special thanks to Daniela, who even moved her car so I could park, and Mrs Tonelli. Hope to return soon. Phil and Pat Kelly, Lancashire England

Room Tip: Fourth floor have great views, or if you can afford it, go for a larger room on the fifth.

This was our third time to Lake Garda. We spent a week in Hotel Garda on a Topflight package. In the first page of the Guest Information Book, guests were thanked for choosing Hotel Garda and wished a pleasant stay in Riva. All the staff in this family-run Hotel were most pleasant and helpful. Rooms were kept spotless every day. Food was excellent and the service was first-class. As well as providing a buffet lunch and afternoon tea, a drink was offered before or after dinner most evenings. At check out, everybody got the gift of a bottle of olive oil and we were assured of a warm welcome if we chose to come back. The family running this Hotel have customer care as their top priority and we would love to come back.

We stayed in the hotel for 7 nights and it was blissful. The bed was huge and so comfortable. The rooms were comfortably though some looked a little tired. It was spotless and the food was very good. The staff couldn't do enough for us and service was always with a smile. Can't wait to go back. Next time we would prequest a room with sunbed balcony.

Just got back from the Hotel Garda in Riva. All staff very pleasant, helpful and hard working. Place spotlessly clean. Although on main road, pool is very relaxing and peaceful. We are used to a buffet evening meal and found their menu limited although staff are always willing to change your dish if not to your taste. Always enjoyed the afternoon tea, cake and fruit! Rooms are pleasant, very clean although a little more hanging space would be appreciated. Very pleased to be on the third floor at the front which gave us a decent view of the lake although having stayed in Limone the previous August where all hotel views are stupendous. Riva is a fairly busy resort good for families with lots to see and do. Take a short bus ride to Cascata Varone only 1 euro each way and entrance fee of five euros fifty well worth it!

Room Tip: The higher the room the better the views of the Lake.

My wife & I decided to go to Lake Garda on our honeymoon. I went with the previous reviews of Hotel Garda and I have to say that it lives up to its reputation. Right from the moment we arrived we felt its warmth and friendliness of the staff. The attention to detail at dinner times was excellent (especially with waiters like Felice and Hakim) with fantastic service & superb running. We were hugely impressed with the quality of the food and the variety over the fortnight. The reception staff were great and organised a free bottle of prosecco for our room as it was our honeymoon... twice. The hotel is about a 15-20 minute walk away from the centre of Riva but the walk along the promenade is so beautiful and romantic it actually added to our stay.

The resort of Riva is great, lots of little bars and restaurants. However, our favourite bar was the Sail Bar just next to the marina on the way to Torbole (5 minute walk from Hotel).

Perhaps the best feature of our stay was the executive suite on floor 5 - Room 508. The furnishing in the room were top class with a lovely bathroom suite and MASSIVE bed. However, it was the view which won best feature. Wow! Waking up to it every day was amazing. I imagine a 4th floor room at the front of the hotel would be similar though the room would be more simple. If you can afford it, arrange an upgrade with the hotel after you book. Next year they are planning to convert the roof into a terrace which will be spectacular.

We really hope to return one day and thank you to all the staff for helping us have a perfect stay.
