Stayed for a week back at the start of the season in mid-May - we travelled with Inghams direct from Glasgow. We got an excellent deal with Travel Zoo which included a free upgrade to half board. The hotel is in a residential part of town, but it's a pleasant 10 minute stroll into the start of the old town, which although is touristy, has enough locals to retain some decent restaurants/cafes. In the past we've stayed in Limone and Malcesine and although we enjoyed these stays, I would return to Riva first.

The hotel has a fabulous new spa, which includes a steamroom, bio-sauna (naked Germans aside), salt room, special showers and water beds. There is also an excellent indoor pool with jacuzzi. It was too cold to use the outdoor pool, but the weather was pleasant and we used the terrace. The other hotel facilities were as expected.

The food was decent. Breakfast was buffet style mainly continental and was as good as you would expect in these parts. A buffet light lunch was free if you purchased a drink, the offerings at lunch were again as expected. Drinks were not too expensive, I think a glass of cava was e3.5 and a bottle of water was e1.50. Dinner was all table service, which makes a nice change from buffet offerings. With four courses on offer, some of the portion sizes were small, particularly the meat/fish course - this is typically Italian and after adjusting to this, it suited us perfectly. On average there were 3/4 choices per course and if you had special requirements, they would try to accommodate within reason. Wine was expensive e20+ per bottle, we tended to have beer. There was also a decent local cheese trolly which.

On arrival we were upgraded to a mini-suite which was located on the top floor in the corner, I presume was because we were travelling with our 5 month old! This was kind as it provided us with a small lounge where he would sleep, allowing us to sit on the balcony in peace with a glass of wine after dinner. The bathroom was modern and large with a shower only. The room itself could have done with some modernisation but it was functional and suited us.

With having the baby we did not travel too far, but we did manage the following:
-Trip to Arco. The market was there during our visit, which detracted from our view of the town. The gardens are said to be nice, but this is exactly where the trailers were located, so did not get to appreciate it. Also my wife's jacket was stolen at the bus stop when we waited to come back. Thankfully nothing in it, but this clouded out view of the small town.
-Walk along the front to Torbole. Very pleasant 1 hour walk each way along the shore, which should be tackled in the mornings as the winds get up in the afternoon and make it more challenging.
-Walk up to the Bastion. This starts off the main the road around the lake, up behind the main square. I managed the buggy up to the view point was hard work at points, but worth it. The cafe at the top is reasonably priced.
-Boat trip to Malcesine. We were married here back in 2007, so a trip back to the castle with our son to relive the experience was good.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floor are best for views. We stayed at the front of the hotel, 3rd floor in older building and 3rd/4th floor in new building should be decent.

Spent a week here - late booking in August 2011. Riva is a super destination - despite the large number of tourists it still feels a 'lived in' town.
Easy to get about - the whole town is easily walkable and local buses can take you to nearby gems such as Arco and Roveretto.
The hotel was very friendly , the food excellent with the addition of a 'free' lbuffet lunch in the garden (Compulsory drink purchase).
Wine was expensive with little under E20 a bottle.
If you ate later, as we did , you were at the mercy of the Head Waiter for the length of wait to order and get your food - he heavily favoured some guests and ignored others. Super service on his night off.
The hotel is situated in a quiet residentail area , those at the back of the hotel have views accross vineyards to the mountains.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have good views and are quiet.

We have just spent a wonderful week in Riva and could nor fault the staff or the services at the Nicolli. Everyone was pleasant and helpful and when I mentioned I could not eat the pasta, being on a gluten free diet,they provided me not only with gluten free pasta, but gluten free bread and ice cream.
The location was an easy walk to the lake front or the town centre with local bus stops within easy distance, the reception provides information on local bus times to nearby areas.
The spa and indoor pool were excellent and a wonderful way to relax before dinner. We didnot try the outdoor pool, but did relax in the garden area nearby.
Together with fantastic scenery in the town and on the lake and the atmosphere and friendliness of the hotel staff we had a wondeful time.

Room Tip: We had a corner room overlooking the pool at the front of the hotel and had a choice of three balconies on which to sunbathe

We just got back from our 2nd visit to Riva Del Garda and the Hotel Villa Nicolli. The family continue to invest in the hotel. Very nice and very welcoming. Nicely set back from the main Riva it is charming peaceful oasis. We will return. Breakfast and the evening meal were excellent as was the commentary lunch. The hotel has free wifi throughout. We’ll go back for sure. We went with Inghams and they were well organised.

Room Tip: Try to get on the rear side of the hjotle facing the vineyard.
