“why are all the other reviews so negative?”
Reviewed 15 August 2009

I read the reviews on here before my holiday and they were all quite negative. We were pleasantly suprised! The hotel is lovely - rooms are fairly basic but kept nice and clean. We enjoyed the food - evening meal was a salad buffet followed by either soup or a pasta dish, then your main and dessert. Service was fine - the waiters were fairly quiet but efficient! Breakfasts were ok too. Prices for drinks were reasonable too and the pool was lovely!!

The only drawback was the location - a bit of a walk to the centre and there are some building works going on - although we didn't hear anything... however there were building works going on in alot of the places we visited in Italy. You have to remember they are only trying to improve and maintain things!!

The actual resort of Riva del Garda is absolutely beautiful!!! As soon as you can go out and see what it has to offer. There are ferries to take you all around the other resorts around the lake. There is a beautiful park area near the lake and at night it is a real pleasure to be out in the centre with the entertainment and outside cafes and the lights shining on the water. A great family holiday !

Reviewed 13 July 2009

Breakfast was fine. Reasoable selection fruit,yoghurt, eggs ,bacon, cereals cooked meats and cheese.
Dinner was very poor. Overcooked ,bland, stew 2 nights on the run. Only one vegetable served, boiled beyond recognition.
Staff pleasant enough. Avoid room 111 as a single, cramped, as a twin it would be impossible to move around in. Not to be recommended.

Reviewed 12 July 2009

have just returned from a weeks holiday in riva staying at the hotel bristol and am surprised at the negative reviews on here. the hotel is clean and comfortable. staff are very friendly and helpful. food on half board basis was certainly adequate. buffet breakfast with cereals, boiled eggs, meats and cheese, rolls and breads,and croissants plus tea or coffe and juices. evening meal consisted of a buffet salad, choice of three starters and three main meals and a dessert trolley. one downside was no free drinks with meal, even water had to be purchased also there are no tea or coffee facilities in the rooms.
the hotel is about a 15 mins walk from the lake front and town centre but as most hotels nearer the old town centre don't have pools i feel the walk was more than made up for by the ability to relax by the pool after a days sightseeing.
