Dear Debbie H,

We are really pleased to know that you decided to come back and that you already booked a room for the next year. Booking early is indeed the best way to make sure that you will get a room and a nice spot for your next holiday, as you know that in summer Riva del Garda tends to be quite busy.
Thanks again for your compliments and for your reservation, we are happy to know that we will be able to welcome you once more next year, and we really look forward to it.
Best regards,
Hotel Garda

This review is of ,,, Hotel Garda.
But just want to say how beautiful Lake Garda is !
Absolutely stunning location, especially Riva del Garda.
Not my first time, but was just as beautiful, if not even more enhanced!
Took the round tour of this beautiful lake , and all the places visited are lovely.
Weather was good, end of August, but can be prone to thunder showers!
Now to the Hotel Garda,,,,
First impression,,, hotel reception staff, VERY friendly and helpful.
Rooms, very clean, nice,lovely comfortable bed !
Good bathroom, with toiletries,
Small balcony unless you have Mira Lago rooms at the front of hotel.
But still have nice views from all rooms.
First encounter, top of hotel, wonderful roof terrace, chairs, tables, loungers, and a toilet.
We enjoyed several hours there, stunning views over Lake Garda.
Added extra, was coffee and cakes at 4.00 all in the price !
Happy hours in the bar around 6.00
The restaurant,,, well, wonderful food, change of menu every night, all cooked to perfection, very understanding staff if you have any medical eating problem, willing to change menu to suit !
Absolutely stunning salad buffet, such choices.
Wine served with meals was very good quality wine .
There are two lifts in the hotel.
A lovely outside pool, with lovely seating areas.
That is the hotel, now to the staff,,,
Reception staff, exceptionaly friendly and helpful
Big thank you to Frederico, who helped us out tremendously!
The bar staff, restaurant staff also very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is family run, and the family are often present, in the dining room, and also around the hotel, they engage with customers, and make people feel extremely welcome, it was a pleasure to stay in this hotel, and would definitely recommend it to anyone, we would definitely stay there again if we visit Lake Garda again.
Thank you for such a wonderful holiday.
From Ann and John Zaninotto.

Room tip: Mira Lago rooms are the best, but views from all rooms are good, but smaller balconies.

Dear Ann and John Zaninotto,

Thank you for your nice review and for your beautiful words. We are truly happy to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you had such a wonderful holiday in Hotel Garda.
As you said, Lake Garda really is an ideal location for a relaxing, but at the same time active holiday in Italy. The lake is perfect for all kind of water sports, and the roads all around it offer some of the most stunning and scenic views that you could have. Many famous movies have been filmed along these coasts and in the many, lovely towns around the lake. Riva del Garda is located right at the top of this wonderful lake, and every year the local administration does its best to improve and enhance the town, its touristic attractions, the popular beaches and the long, pleasant lake promenades.
We are also very happy by your kind compliments about our Hotel. All the staff is indeed very professional, friendly and helpful, always ready to assist our guests whenever there is need, to provide all sort of useful information and to let them feel welcome, at ease and like at home. It is also important for us to read that you liked our rooms and found them comfortable, as we think that comfort and relax are fundamental aspects of a truly enjoyable holiday. The cleaning staff also is indeed very attentive and careful, having great care of all rooms everyday and also of the whole of our structure and facilities.
It is also pleasant to see that you appreciated the roof terrace on top of our Hotel, which is always available to all guests and offers incredible views of the lake and the surrounding valley, along with the quiet, relaxing atmosphere that you can find there. Finally, our Chef and cooks are glad to know that you enjoyed the food served in our restaurant, as they personally choose only the best local products and ingredients which are then prepared and transformed with great talent in tasty, genuine meals according to the typical and italian cuisine.
Thank you again for your kind compliments, and for choosing our Hotel for your stay. We will be glad to welcome you once more should you wish to come and spend your holiday with us again.
Best regards,
Hotel Garda
Gabriella and Rino Tonelli

My friend and I travelled to Lake Garda on a last minute booking and were not disappointed with our two weeks stay,somewhere we also had not been before. Riva we found stunning especially the old part of town where we loved to wander and people watched in the many little cafes along the way. The weather was mixed somewhat but when the sun shone it was lovely , so I would advise light macs and brollies along with your swim wear.
The Hotel Garda was the icing on the cake for us really and the warmth from the staff and management alike was so nice to experience . its quite a small family run hotel and they really go the extra mile to keep their guests happy and contented . To see each night the family of four generations gather to eat in the dining room with the guests was testamount to their lovely nature. The senior lady of the family in particular spent a lot of time just reading or relaxing in the garden , and would always smile on our passing . Nice touch we thought. The meals were superb each evening with four courses accompanied by wine and water . Two or three times a week there would be further extra treats pre the evening meal like canapes and prosecco etc ,and fantastic sweet desserts displayed so beautifully .The afternoon tea was a delight and well supported each day.
All the staff deserve a medal in our book but we would have to mention Sonia , Ivan Frederico and Salvadore who were so attentive in many ways . We felt wrapped in a bubble whilst there and were almost reluctant to leave . We will definitely return one day to Riva and this hotel for certain. Thank you all so much . Room 108 was superb by the way.

Dear Lorna D,

Thank you for your kind review and for your beautiful compliments. It is truly a pleasure for us to know that you enjoyed your stay in our Hotel and we are also happy to read that you liked very much Riva del Garda.
The town of Riva with its surroundings are indeed very characteristic and peculiar, they really are worthy to be discovered, explored and visited, since the neighbourhood hosts many hidden, beautiful spots that often reward with panoramic and stunning views on the lake or the valley.
Your words about Hotel Garda are very pleasant and gentle; it is true that our Hotel is family run and a bit smaller than others, but we see this as an advantage that allows us to have more care of our guests and therefore let them feel welcomed, at ease and like at home. The warmth of this welcome is something that we do our best to express through friendliness, helpfulness and also professionalism by all our staff, but also by all the management and the Tonelli family.
As you said, you may be able to spot quite often the very Tonelli family having dinner in the restaurant with the guests; that is because of their will to share a bit of time with the Hotel's guests, but also because of the really high quality of the meals served in our "La Rosa dei Venti" restaurant. Chef Domenico takes in fact care to choose personally only the most fresh, local products and ingredients which are then prepared with great expertise and talent. He and his cooks really let you flavour the authentic, genuine taste of the italian cuisine, introducing also some of the most traditional, typical recipes.
Thank you again for your gentle words and beautiful review. We look forward to welcome you once more whenever you wish to come back and spend again a few days with us in Hotel Garda.
Best regards,
Gabriella and Rino Tonelli.

The hotel is situated a few minutes walk from the Lake, bus stops and shops. Although situated on a busy road our sleep was not disturbed. The rooms are cleaned daily and there’s always a clean supply of towels. No coffee/tea facility but this wasn’t a problem as we had our own travel kettle. Bath robes, slippers and pool towels were provided. The buffet breakfast provides a great selection of hot and cold food and drinks, including a fruit/vegetables and a juicer. Afternoon tea/coffee and cakes are served daily. A 4 course evening meal is provided and your choice is made each day at breakfast. The fresh bread a salad selection was excellent. And complimentary wine and bottled water are served. The hotel is very clean, the staff are efficient, helpful and friendly. A lovely week, thank you all.
