It was a very nice weekend trip to Bellavista Hotel, the view is amazing, cute restaurant terrace and big clean pool. The rooms were clean and spacious, staff was very friendly. Would definitely come back.

We stayed there for a long weekend in July. The hotel is spotless and the view is breathtaking. I was traveling with my 7 months baby and didn't know when booking but the room had no air co. We had an awful first night it was more than 30 degrees in the room. The next day they offered us to...

We were a party of 4 and stayed for a week with breakfast & dinner. The breakfast was just ok but the dinners were poor - ok for the price you couldn't expect haute cuisine but we expected better than it was and we wouldn't have the dinners if we stayed again. The rooms are ok but do not have...

I've been here for a long weekend and there's nothing bad to say about the hotel. The food was great at the restaurant, a big breakfast buffet and good service. Some of the rooms are quite small but still good enough for a comfortable stay with a small tv, fridge and balcony. Another plus is the beautiful view on the...

Lovely hotel, nice spacious rooms (the road is noisy until about midnight, but with the windows closed, no problem). Very clean. Lovely garden. Nice, attentive staff, charming and efficient manager. Food o.k. but nothing special. Pasta dishes overcooked, as well as the fish. I had the feeling that some dishes were kept warm, instead of being cooked when ordered. As...

We had the good fortune to stay at Hotel Bellavista for 5 days and we can't praise it highly enough. From the moment we arrived in town we were collected by the hotels minibus and whisked up the mountainside to a spotlessly clean room with a spectacular view. Lake Maggiore is of outstanding natural beauty and the hotel was ideally...

This lovely hotel belongs to the Swiss Touring club, the leading drivers association. It is very renowned and certainly deserves its reputation. The view on the Lago Maggiore is stupendous from the rooms and the restaurant. The staff is very friendly, the food delicious and the gardens amazing, almost like a botanical garden with many flowers all year round.

We came back the 4th time. Family (2 kids 8 and 9 years old) and friends. It's just perfect. Nice rooms - bungalow style - always 3 rooms together. Looks like a park on the mountain. From nearly every room a nice view over the lake on Locarno/Ascona. The staff is lovely, nice and attentive. Nice terrace to sit outside...

Hotel Bellavista is a 3 star hotel slightly above Lago Magiore. In my opinion you need a car as the bus down to the town and lake (which stops just opposite the hotel) runs only every 2 hours but the times connect with the boats to various lovely places like Locarno or Ascona. Also the last bus arrives at 18.30....

Hotel Bellavista is a 3* hotel close to Lago Magiore. It is located on the left side of the lake in a small vilage called Vira. It is on the oposite side of Locarno. With a car is quite fast to get from Ascona or Locarno to the hotel. I would say that this is the only inconvenient, specily for...
