This was the second time I have stayed at a hotel in Italy which has received some poor reviews.So again I approached my holiday with some trepidation but I need not have worried.I really must say I sometimes wonder if the people who make such terrible comments on TripAdvisor stay at the same places as me.As with the Hotel Imperiale in Fiuggi the experience I had at the Royal was in total opposite to the reviews I had read.
All the staff were friendly,helpful and spoke good English.The food was good with plenty of options breakfast and evening.
Bar prices were no worse than hotels in the UK,in fact probably cheaper and better quality lager.
The room was comfortable with a balcony overlooking the pool and glorious views of the mountains.The air conditioning was tremendous with 3 settings to suit your needs.The bathroom was modern and spacious.
The outside pool area was excellent with plenty of sun loungers,tables and chairs.The hotel also has a nice conservatory style lounge near the entrance to relax in.
Lake Garda is a very short walk away with shops and restuarants also just a couple of minutes away.The main town of Riva is about 10-15 minutes walk around the shores of the lake which is one of the best walks I have ever done as the scenery and atmosphere is wonderful.
All in all my partner and I have vowed to return and will definitely stay in the Royal again.
