This hotel is clean and has various different seating areas,both inside and outdoors. It has a pool and a child's pool adjacent to the outdoor seating area. The hotel is in a reasonably quiet area about 20 minutes walk down into Riva Del Garda. Only one problem, it is uphill coming back. However there are bus stops on the main road and a bus station quite close by so ask the staff for details. There is a small supermarket immediately behind the hotel that is useful for snacks or any items you may have forgotten.
The staff are all very pleasant and helpful. The food is excellent. 4 course meals were the order of the evening. They also made birthdays great fun with sparklers in birthday cakes brought to the table. We had one night of entertainment, a guy with a keyboard who was really quite good and had a varied repertoire. The Jewel in the crown was an unexpected treat to be invited down to the basement to see a wonderful collection of old bikes and war memorabilia in a small museum created by the husband of one of the owners.
The bedrooms were not large and the bathrooms very small with a two foot square shower that was a tight squeeze. Most of bathrooms our coach party used had a high step to get in and out of the bathroom that I found quite disconcerting.
I worried about lack of security at reception as pigeon holes sometimes held passports and room keys but they were easily accessible to anyone passing. Each room had a safe but we just locked things in our large wardrobe that had its own key.
I was impressed that some of the staff came out to wave us off,a nice friendly gesture. Thank you.
