Hotel Bristol 38066 Riva del Garda
The hotel is said to be a 20 minute walk from the lake, I didn’t time the walk, but it seemed less. The hotel has a swimming pool, which I used in June, a bit cool on first getting in, but I soon warmed up after a couple of lengths. I collected two beach towels at reception for use at the pool. There is a choice of seating, tables and chairs, loungers and something in-between like a rocking chair. Also tables for drinks, books etc.
We stayed in room 215, which has three little balconies, even one for the shower room too. Rooms have phone, hairdryer& safe. Towels & beds are changed daily and toiletries restocked. There are two chairs and a table on the balcony. There are plenty of coat hangers in the wardrobe, but I’d have liked a couple of door hooks to hang outside coats and dressing gown. Beds are comfortable and there are extra blankets and pillows in the wardrobe.
The shower is hot and strong. No bath.
We had to close the windows at night as the traffic never stops and the birds are noisy in the morning.
Breakfast is buffet style. Lots of cold choices. Meats, bread, cheese, yogurt, muslie, cereal, hard boiled eggs, tinned fruit, water, juice, tea and coffee.
No tea and coffee facilities in the rooms, but you can order via reception and have in the public areas.
There is a TV lounge with 5 or so sofas and a few armchairs.
A bar with plenty of seating
We were on a coach trip and our package included dinner, served by waiters. We were given a choice of three starters and main meals at breakfast that we ticked for the evening. I am gluten free, and they catered brilliantly for me, even having a GF Pasta alternative. After the main meal a trolley of 5 to 7 desserts is wheeled around for your choice. Followed by tea or coffee. No complaints with the service or food.
There is free Wi Fi access. You need to go to reception with your passport and they will photocopy it and then give you a user name and code for the internet, but you only get two hours at a time, and have to collect a new code each time you want to log in. The receptionist speaks good English. The owner not so much, but is very helpful and pleasant.
The hotel is clean, has nice flowers in the public areas, modern and well presented. I was satisfied.
