“Great situation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Visited here with Travel Department and was not disappointed. Great situation just a few hundred metres from the lakeside walkway which takes you into Riva del Gard. Staff friendly and helpful rooms good sized with comfortable beds and clean fresh linen. Food was adequate and plentiful with a good choice. Had to be chosen at breakfast but I think this is a good idea as it saves waste. Good wine list with bottles starting at Euro10. Free WiFi in the bar which no-one has mentioned. A nice touch.

Just returned from holiday booked via riveria travel. Had an amazing time. Staff at Brione were lovely. Hotel was spotlessly clean although decor was a little dull looking. Beds were so comfortable, food although rather limited was of good quality. I require a gluten free diet and they provided this without any problem whatsoever. Hotel was situated in a perfect location, a 5 minute stroll from the lake. Overall, we had a wonderful holiday.

Booked a holiday with Riviera Travel, Lake Garda, Venice and Verona. Read some of the Hotel reviews before, but it's Italy, we choose based on budget and went with an open mind.
Staff were lovely and helpful, we had two adjacent rooms on the ground floor over looking the pool. Rooms were clean a bit tired, ideal location being only a short walk into the main town and water front, good for walking off Dinner. Half board, food choice and quality very good. The tour guide Werner was excellent and enthusiasm for the area shone through.

Stayed August 2013, travelled with family

More like an institution than a hotel. Very spartan, no pictures on the wall in the room, plastic beakers in the bathroom, thin cardboard hard towels provided. No coffee or tea making facility.

Set menu, evening meal had to be selected at breakfast. Three choices of starter and main meal. Food very poor. Staff over worked with just three staff to cope with approximately 100 guests.

No card transactions, only cash accepted.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear, away from the main road

The location of the Brione is brilliant only a 5 minute walk from the lake side but the hotel itself is "tired". Rooms are a reasonable size but there were signs of mould in the bathroom, a musty smell that stayed with us all week, harsh fluorescent strip lighting above the beds, only one socket and blankets and towels that had seen better days. The food was adequate but rarely exciting; the salad bar hardly varied during the week and there was a fair degree of "stodge" that we have never experience before in Italy. The staff fell into two camps; some were charming and friendly but the others had trained with Basil Fawlty. They gave the impression of wanting you out of the dining room as fast as possible; bringing starters before giving you a chance to order drinks. The female staff on reception were great but one man in particular could have come straight from Fawlty Towers.

I'm sure there are much better 3 star hotels in Riva

We stayed at this hotel with Riviera Travel. Our room was lovely and quiet, overlooking the pool, we requested a room at the back of the hotel away from the noisy road. The hotel was spotless our room was serviced every day, we had a king sized bed with crisp white spotless sheets, the towels were changed each day. We had no complaints about the food, this is a 3* hotel so I don't know why some people expect gourmet meals. The staff were very friendly and helpful. During the week we had a candlelit gala night, which was very enjoyable, the food was very good and the service was excellent, the staff are very efficient and work very hard. We did eat out one evening, but this was because we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted to do something special, and not a reflection on the hotel food. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Brione hotel and would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the Brione for 7 nights, booking with Riviera Travel. Our room 203 was spotless with a balcony overlooking the road and the the mountains. A bit noisy for us as we are used to a quiet road with no noise. It was a good spot for people watching. The furnishings are rather tired. The whole room could do with a re-furb. 2 single beds which were pushed together to make a kingsize on our request. Spotless cotton sheets which were changed. Blankets rather than duvet, a tired blue bed cover, carpet worn and flat. There is a safe but no tea making facilities, so take your own with a plug adaptor.. No fridge. Only one plug socket, next to the TV (which we didn't use). Plenty of coat hangers in the wardrobe (smelt rather musty). The bathroom spotless with a shower, but could do with an update. No hooks to hang clothes, but I presume that was what the plastic stool was for. Hairdryer adequate, and I'm fussy about my hair. Lighting rather dim although there were 3 light bulbs on the mirror, it wasn't bright enough for applying makeup and the bedroom wasn't much better. Towels changed regularly but rather worn and thin.
Restaurant a basic room with tables for 4 persons, with a view over the garden. Food not gourmet, ok with 3 choices in the evening. Our guide, Werner, informed us the hotel grow their own vegetables, which were always fresh. Restaurant staff pleasant and are able to understand a little English. Wine waiter is a character and very helpful. The hotel ask you pay for your drinks in the restaurant each night before you leave. Cash only. Breakfast always plentiful with the usual meat egg bread croissant and fruit. Tea came with hot water in the pot and bags on the side.English breakfast blend similar to PG tips. Gala night was enjoyable with an elderly gent entertaining us with the keyboard and a variety of instruments. He was quite good, but played the predictable selection of tunes. Was able to dance in small cleared area of restaurant.
Pool was very cold but welcome after a day out. Sunbeds available. Area around pool attractive and spotless. No pool bar or shop. take a drink with you. Sun is lost behind the hotel mid afternoon and pool is shaded.
There is a room with books to read and swop and a computer which we were not made aware of until our last day by our guide. Something the reception should have told us, but they did not give info unless asked. The owner and wife ate in the restaurant in the evening - a good sign, but did not mix with the guests, and were rather aloof.
Hotel have bikes for hire at 5euros a day. My advice is check them out first before you commit. Our opinion is (and we cycle regularly in the UK) they are old, do not appear to be well maintained, with bald tyres and loose brakes. If you plan to go further than the car park - hire them elsewhere, around 15E a day.. You cannot try them for size as they are locked with the receptionist reluctant to unlock them . (We have told our tour guide). Cycle paths everywhere and a great experience to cycle in safety.
The hotel bar is basic but comfortable enough and the staff friendly. If you are teetotal the chances are water, orange juice, cola, lemonade or tea/coffee is your only option. Non alcoholic cocktails unavailable.
A 5 minute walk down the narrow road opposite finds the lake. This is the best feature of the hotel, the location.
In short you get what you pay for, 3* hotel with prices to match.

Room Tip: Quiet rooms - ask for a pool view, people watching ask for road view. All have balconies.
