We are seasoned travellers & have travelled all over the world & this is possibly the first hotel myself & husband have felt totally unwelcome. Stayed 4 nights halfboard. Breakfast good apart from the only 'hot' dish on offer was scrambled eggs & very fatty bacon each morning. Ok if you like scrambled eggs. I don't! As we were part...

The hotel is in a lovely position and resort. Our room was very dark and lacked emergency evacuation instructions. The furnishings were very basic. Breakfasts were good (apart from cold uncooked bacon one day) but evening meals were terrible. Mostly poor quality food served warm or cold. The restaurant staff were mostly off-hand and quite rude. This hotel should not...

This hotel is situated at the most northern area of Lake Garda and from the restaurant boasts lovely views overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains. Located in a prime position close to the lake and central to all amenities. The hotel is generally clean and comfortable. On booking this holiday we requested a Lake view to which was granted, we...

Read carefully my review in order to understand the critics about the grand hotel riva. The hotel has an unique location and the management has decided to offer a low cost service and make you pay for the location. The majority of the complaints are from people that are expecting a 4 stars service(how the hotel is classified) for a...

Best part of this hotel was the location. It's very central, right by the lake, where you want to be. The rooms are very small but since we reserved a room that looked larger in the pictures (it had a balcony, seems to be that was the reason for the higher price and not the room size) and it was...

Good points: fantastic location beside lake; room comfortably furnished; pleasant lounge; restaurant with panoramic views; central location. Bad points: main courses are mediocre; there is blaring music from nearby venue at weekends that goes on till after midnight; rooms under the uncarpeted fifth floor dining room hear every scrape of a chair from 6.30am onwards. No chance of a lie-in!
