Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful also in case of "special" wishes
Closeness to Locarno and Lugano. View of the lake and mountains. Friendly receptionnist. One could order one coffee in the morning if one did not want breakfast. Drinks were offered from 11:30 to 16:30. One did not have a mini bar in the room. Room service was not possible. Hotel seems quite dead in the evening. The inside pool was closed and there were only 3 workout machines on the side.
Everything. From the entrance to the meal in the'cantina' to the fantastic pools -- yes 2 (one indoor, one outdoor) that are unbeleivebably clean-to the views over Lake Maggiore to the mountains to the fantastic staff & most hospitible manager, Raine., Could have been more music (grand piano being tinkled from the patio as you sit around the torch-lit pool.......) other than Sat nite.....
We stayed at the hotel in the off season, Brissago was pretty dead at night. However the kids loved the indoor pool and the location was perfect because we had our car, thus it was an easy commute to Locarno and Ascona.
Fantastic reception, the manager Rainer Theisen could not have been more helpful. Mountain trips, advise and lots of local knowledge, even a hotel car on hire for day trips. 10/10
the setting was perfect on the lakeside. super garden and acces to the lake. basic room, bed and shower for 120CHF.This hotel is a 4 star hotel for location and garden......Sorry for the room is even 1 star to much.
Quiet room with beautiful view over the lake (basic room with lakeside view). Staff very friendly Breakfast is served, no buffet.
This was my second stay at the Rivabella and just as delightful as the first some years ago. Friendly welcome and manner of all the staff during our stay - especially at breakfast which we could eat on the terrace of the beautiful garden. The rooms are simply furnished, but comfortable and spotlessly clean - with a great view of the lake from the window. The small pebbly beach in front of the hotel was lovely for a dip in the lake (for an English 'girl'!) even though it was mid-October. We were travelling without a car and enjoyed using the good bus service along the lake to Ascona and Locarno. We certainly hope to stay there again soon.
