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.

We stayed for three nights. Lovely staff, very, very polite and sweet people! Perfect view to the Lake Maggiore. Simple bedrooms but very comfortable beds and all in all very clean!! Breakfast, served by the sweetest lady (mille grazie), nice variety of Croissant and bread, a good choice of jam and everything else. And of course: beautiful garden to relax. So, all in all: We enjoyed our stay!

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed 3 days at Rivabella and it was a very nice Surprise. The room was clean , the view is amazing, breakfast is served on the table with many delicious things and the service is extremely friendly. The owner of the place is very nice and it helps with whatever you need. The garten makes you feel like you are in a botanical garden. We felt like home. Nice atmosphere, quiet and we can’t wait to visit again. One small critic is that the room we stayed , we didn’t have wifi over the entire room so we always had to stay close to the door to get the signal but this is a very small problem compared to the delight that it was out stay at the Rivabella <3

We were there for an extended weekend with the whole family. The hotel is located right in front of the lake Maggiore and at the center of Brissago. It is a family business of Mr. Quaglia, thank you for the great management and your lovely staff, we really had a wonderful stay, your hospitality is much appreciated and will be recommended, keep up the good work, we should be back soon.

This place managed to mix up bookings. I got a call in which the receptionist cancelled my booking without offering an alternative acommodation. She did that the day before arrival; impossible for us to find anything else. Avoid such a place.

Good morning, I am the owner of the structure. I am very sorry for the mistake made on our part. During this period we receive many requests and we try to do our best to respond to customer needs. Unfortunately in our case we made a mistake and we didn't think of proposing another structure that had availability for the dates you requested. Every year we have many nights and guests happy with our welcome, kindness and position of the hotel. Unfortunately, we were unable to host it as a result of our mistake. Please again apologize and we are sorry for the misunderstanding. Sincerely. Ugo Quaglia
