How to Get There
It was our dirt time in Riva. This lovely hotel was such a find. The main thing about the hotel was the wonderful staff. From reception, bar, restaurant and chamber maids they couldn’t do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The free bikes were great and staff happy to recommend places. Thank you Bruno for the great route to Arco . The outdoor pool was great and the indoor spa fab after biking or wanting to relax. Food lovely but the breakfast is something to behold. Just lovely. We now understand why we saw so many returning guests. The free walk with the owner was fun and extremely interesting. We will definitely be back and have already recommended to friends. Well done team for a great place to stay
Hopefully this review will give you pointers for you to decide on which part of lake garda and subsequent hotel to choose. As I went through lots and finally settled on the villa Nicolli. Its a no way a bad review of the hotel. Arrived late September and location to the old town is excellent a 10 minute quick walk or 15 minute stroll which we did on most evenings. We were half board which meant we ate out for lunch and drinks all of which in riva are surprisingly cheap. Cheapest bottle of wine in the hotel was 29 euros which is a hefty price to pay compared to 15-18 in the bars. We did stretch to a bottle in the bar of the hotel one evening, bartender was very nice even recommending select spritz to the bf who has now claimed as his favourite over Aperol. Service was excellent but the bar was lacking a lot of atmosphere. No real music or entertainment, not sure if everyone was in riva or in their rooms as the dining room looked full each evening. Now the dining for breakfast it caters very much continental so a choice of about 3 meats and 2 cheeses each morning and THE most amazing pastries. You could have eggs cooked and streaky bacon however no English style cooked breakfasts if that's what you are looking for. Lots of bread and fruit, yoghurt on offer so it was no bad thing we missed English breakfasts all week! In terms of evening meal we didmt realise it was a set menu each evening. 4 courses and if you didn't like what was on offer there was a couple of alternatives you could have but not many. We never went hungry but lots of dishes not to our personal taste and not somehting we would have ordered. A bit more choice would have been nice. We had the same table each evening which was nice and service good. We saved a lot of money due to prices in riva being cheap that we treated ourselves to a meal by the lake on the last evening. We didn't use the outside pool, it was deserted I assume to it being too cold. The spa looked well used but we didn't ourselves. Room was a good size and clean. The bed is very firm and so were the pillows which the hotel kindly got me a couple of softer ones. The balcony was Nice with 2 chairs but no table which I found strange. Little fridge in the room but you are instructed not to use it for anything you buy its just for mini bar use only. We were a young couple and the general market in this hotel was a bit older. If you are looking for a quiet retreat than this maybe for you. We would return to the hotel but only on a bed and breakfast basis as we love the choice in riva.
We had the most amazing time staying at Riva del Garda, and the Villa Nicolli made our holiday the best ever. From the moment we arrived, till our checkout a week later, the hotel fulfilled all our expectations and more. The staff were wonderful, they couldn’t do enough for us and made us feel like we were the only people staying in the hotel, the food was fantastic, we loved every mouthful, our room was so lovely, it was all we needed. We had a lovely view of the mountains and it was cleaned thoroughly everyday. The whole experience was amazing, we loved every single minute of our stay and we felt a real sadness on our departure. From the lovely ladies on reception who couldn’t be more helpful, to the very attentive waiters and bar staff and the wonderful girls who clean the hotel to the highest standard, you are all amazing. You made our holiday Simply The Best, thank you ????
