Hotel Savoy Palace - TonelliHotels
Ranked #6 of 62 Hotels in Riva Del Garda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Recently returned from a weeks holiday at the Savoy Palace. Very friendly hotel that cannot be faulted. The food and staff were excellent and the hotel's location is only a few minutes stroll from the lake and a 20 minute stroll into the main town of Riva. The hotel has both an indoor and outdoor pool but the weather was so good the week we stayed we only used the outdoor pool which is in a lovely garden setting with plenty of sun loungers available. Free Wi Fi available with a password from reception? I would definitely return to this hotel again.

This holiday was booked at the last minute so had little time to do my normal thorough research. Had a brief look at trip advisor and went with the majority of reviews.The hotel is great and the reviews were spot on.
The hotel and grounds are lovely and sat in the most picturesque of settings a few minutes walk from the lake and a 20 minute walk into Riva Town. The planters and foliage around the grounds are the loveliest I have seen at any hotel and deserve a special mention.
The hotel rooms are fine with a decent bathroom and as we were on the top floor we had a gorgeous view from the balcony over the town and mountains, We were in room 532.
The food at the hotel is very good for half board with some dishes being of excellent quality. You could easily come to this hotel and spend no money at all if you were on a tight budget with the substantial breakfast buffet, free cake and fruit with tea and coffee in the afternoon and full evening meal with free bottled water and a carafe of red or white wine. We like a drink and did spend a fair amount of money at the bar but thought the prices were fair for a hotel.
The service at the hotel was very good apart from the miserable bar tender who made you feel he was doing you a big favour serving you a drink. Mr Tonelli was ever present from breakfast through to late evening, He has a look of Dustin hoffman crossed with the Fonz and he seems very pleasant
The evening entertainment is pretty poor but speaking to other people most other hotels have no entertainment at all so its better then nothing.
If you like to spend time around the town in the evenings this may not be the best hotel for you as it is a bit far out, there are a few places to eat and drink closer but not many. If you prefer to just chill at the hotel this place is perfect.
The resort is absolutely beautiful but be aware it is full of mad cyclist and you have to have your wits about you or you may well end up on your backside. As the resort of Riva gets the afternoon wind it is a magnet for windsurfers. This resort is very good choice for the active types.
Visited a few other resorts and all were stunning.
Would highly recommend hotel and resort.

Good hotel with friendly staff, food and service above average with a number of themed evenings throughout the week we stayed, paid for up grade to a deluxe room which was well worth the money. The hotel has both an indoor and outdoor pool, the indoor is usualy quiet while the outdoor is large enough not to feel over crowded even when all the sun loungers at in use. The walk into the centre of Riva is only a twenty minute stroll either down the street or by the lake shore.

Very enjoyable stay. Excellent food, both choice and quality. The staff are a real asset to this hotel - always friendly and helpful.
Room was large and clean with useable balcony.
I agree with other comments regarding the evening entertainment (although on one evening we were treated to a performance by the West Glamorgan Youth Orchestra who were excellent).
After dinner, I would recommend a walk along the lakeside path towards Riva town - lots of benches to sit and break the journey, lovely scenery, and a healthy option!
There is a very popular ice-cream parlor, Flora, on the main road near the hotel - try it at least once while you're here: deee- lish!
The hotel has Wi-Fi available. Just ask at reception for the password.
If returning to Riva, we would definitely stay here again.

This is a beautiful hotel situated on the North of the island of Lake Garda in the region of Riva. Riva is ideally located for anyone who would like to take part in watersports, or simply enjoy watching the windsurfers and sail boats. The Savoy palace is 4 star and definitely deserves the rating. It is beautifully clean, the restaurant is good with plenty of choice. We were impressed by the quality of food served, a huge salad buffet and selection of breads to start, followed by 4 courses. Staff are friendly and welcoming and easy to please. The hotel rooms are quite spacious with fridge and bathroom ( shower, wash basin, toilet and bidet). Only one disappointment, the wall mounted hairdryer is useless, make sure you take your own!). Downstairs there is a large bar and outdoor seating area serving all types of drinks and cocktails, this is open throughout the day, they also serve 'afternoon tea' between 4-5pm where you can order tea//coffee and a tray of cakes.There is a large poolside area with a nice poolside bar where you can order lunch and drinks. There is also a small indoor pool in the basement area of the hotel with jacuzzi.
The only evening entertainment provided was a pianist, although he was very good it would have been nice if they provided better entertainment. You could tell guests wanted to get up and dance or see a good vocalist, and the pianist wasn't really entertaining enough to satisfy those guests. We felt that if this one thing could be improved the hotel would be pretty faultless for guests, especially as in the surrounding area the are very few bars around providing any entertainment. The Savoy palace is definitely a hotel my family would return to and I would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: There are some larger family apartments available.

a very clean and well positioned hotel, with friendly and helpful staff,the food is good although it can be a bit repetitive and the requirement to place your order for your evening meal at breakfast is not I feel personally ideal!.

The owner manager is on site which is comforting if there are any real problems.

At the time of booking I read trip advisor and although not clear it did seem that there were different graded rooms, when I checked this with the travel agent, I was told this was not the case and requested a lake view. On my arrival i was told that the hotel was full and they could not fulfil my request? It became quite clear that there are different grade rooms and these rooms are larger and have better facilities and views!

We went with another couple and it was quite clear that we had been given an adjoining children's room so that we could be close to our friends.

I would recommend the Savoy the rooms are clean but make sure you get clear clarification on what you booking and there are very few if any with a lake view.

Our week-long stay at the SAVOY PALACE hotel, Riva del Garda, was fantastic. The hotel facilities were excellent and the staff did a wonderful job in ensuring that our stay was perfect. The free afternoon tea/coffee with pastry daily between 4.00pm to 5.00pm was a particularly welcome service allowing one to recover from a hard day at the pool. The 4-course meals for those taking the half-board option were incredibly good value. On one occasion we arrived at 9.40pm after a long and tiring excursion to Venice. Even though the restaurant closed at 9.00pm, the staff remained at their post and served us our 4-course meal (including a half-litre of wine). For this, many thanks to Davide (chef), Danile (pastry chef), Fausto, and Gina – a hotel is only as good as the staff it employs, and at the Savoy Palace they employ the best.
