Lago Maggiore is a lovely lake of considerable size and the village of Brissago is located on the Swiss side of the border to Italy. Hotel Rivabella was built as a hotel in the 19th century and has a strong historic flair with a well kept subtropical garden on the lakefront (private beach for swimming in chilly but clean waters)...

We (2 couples) thought the hotel was wonderful! The location is simply superb, the garden most certainly the highlight, the service immaculate and friendly. Thank goodness, breakfast was served at the table (the menu extensive) and not subject of a horrendous "buffet". Such service is extremely rare and accordingly welcome! The English couple would have appreciated tea-making facilities in the...

I stayed here with three friends of mine (2 Swiss, 1 American and me, from Austria) for a week (July 22-28, 2013). I was like in a dream. The amazing look on the lake from the rooms, palm trees, a lush green garden, the wonderful people at the hotel, especially Hugo, the owner, his mother and Verbena who is so...

It is not the great luxury, but the welcome is very warmly and friendly, the atmosphere is very warm, the rooms are good, the bathroom is comfortable, the wifi works perfectly within...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The position is magnificient: directly on the Lago Maggiore whose powerful wash of the waves untrained ears might mistake for the rush of the sea. And the absolutely clear and clean water makes bathing a temptation hard to resist. The terraced palm grove sloping down to the lake is one of the most beautiful of the whole "Verbano". The house is personally run by the owner. Breakfast is served at the table, in fine weather, on the beautiful terrace overlooking the lake.Room have private toilet, shower, radio and telephone. Television is in the living room. Free of charge WI-Fi is available in the entire hotel. Meadows for sunbathing. ... more   less

“Every room has a view of the lake! Not every room has a TV so you will have to request a room with a TV if that is what you want.”

“ask for a lake-facing room away from the road for the views and quiet nights. those also get the sun all day, which means that they are bright, but screens are fixed in case of hot weather.”
