The hotel is a good standard and the staff very helpful but our rooms heating had not been turned on so it was very cold and took several hours to heat. The restaurant is wonderful, great staff and food to die for and all from the local area. we had lunch the 1st day and an evening meal the second.... More

Are stay was pleasant the staff were nice friendly and very welcoming. Nothing was a problem. We were travelling at night and it was a nightmare to find as on google maps it wasn't where it said on there. We ate at the restaurant, the food was lovely but very over priced. Rooms were nice but we had a bed... More

Perhaps the best restaurant in Calabria and the hotel was welcoming and the accomodation carefully thought through. The location on the edge of Castrovillari is perhaps not great but the garden makes up for that. A memorable stay.

We had one of our two best meals in Italy at this lovely restaurant, attended by the most engaging staff imaginable. They were attentive and fun, and generous. The waiter, noticing my husband's love for the home-baked bread, packaged up three napkins full of it for the drive to our next stop. And, when the staff poured my generous glass... More

Set on the edge of the small town, it looks like an urban area when you first arrive. But once in, you get fabulous views of the surrounding mountains. It certainly isn't 2 km away from the centre of town as stated by one reviewer and took just over 10 minutes to walk in to town and we saw no... More

We came to the hotel following a really enjoyable two weeks experiencing the delights of Calabria. The hotel was tucked away 2km out of town in scrubby suburbs behind apartment blocks, with rubbish in the street outside. The hotel reception, bar, lounge and restaurant were stuffy - reminiscent of decrepit US motels. The garden and pool were an absolute disgrace... More

Lovely little restaurant well stocked with wine and nice staff. Amazing food you don't want to miss. We drove for hours to get there to do nothing but taste their food. It turned out to be a very wise decision. We decided to stay long enough to be able to have lunch the next day before leaving. Rooms are ok,... More

The dinner at the Locanda was the most memorable of our 2 week trip to southern Italy (including Michelin one star restaurants). The menu is varied and the dishes outstanding, prepared with local ingredients and local herbs! We were there on a cold and rainy evening and morning and could not enjoy the garden and pool. The room was comfortable... More

We just returned from a two week vacation to southern Italy (Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia) to learn more about where my ancestors originated. When researching and planning our trip we noticed one travel guide describe La Locanda di ALIA as the "gastronomic temple" of Calabria. As people who sincerely appreciate great food, we made a commitment to stop in Castrovillari.... More

We spent a night here in August. First impressions were "strange place"! There was nobody around and the hotel had a rather deserted feel. We were shown to our room which was very comfortable albeit a little dark. However, the dinner that evening was probably one of the best we have had in Italy and we travel here a lot.... More
