Our reservation was handled with accuracy and professionalism; no effort aimed at our satisfaction was spared when we checked in and during our stay. The owners really make you feel at home. Some of the rooms despite the good level of comfort and great views are in need redecoration. Service is impeccable and the staff are keen on being as... More

A wonderful hotel. We toured all over Calabria over the week. If you mentioned you were staying in a hotel in Cetraro. They instantly said "Grand hotel St Michele". Whilst we were there for the week we saw two weddings. All the locals love this hotel and I can see why, with and amazing view at the top of a... More

Recently returned from a week spent at The Grand Hotel San Michele. What a wonderful experience! The hotel is set in beautiful grounds and gardens overlooking the sea. Breakfast and dinner are served on lovely terraces. This family run hotel, which is friendly and accommodating, is a delight. A lift built into the cliff, takes you down to three small... More

This has to be the best place we've ever stayed at! This majestic beauty, built in the 20's and converted to a hotel in the 60's, was every bit a 5 star exclusive resort, but without the "snobbiness". The staff was wonderful. We met the owner's wife; such a gracious host and so caring about the guests and the hotel.... More

A gorgeous place to stay in a not-so-visited part of southern Italy. Perched high up a hill it its own glorious gardens (and golf course), the hotel is a gracious, beautifully-restored and maintained property with everything to offer. Some rooms have their own Juliette balconies and there are superb terraces for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a pool... More

This hotel is yet another little Italian gem. A lovely family run hotel in a beautiful location. No opulent glitz but sheer charm and quality. Excellently run by the family who are always present to address any queries. Staff all appear very happy in their work with the owner's wife Ornella being the most customer service minded person you could... More

My husband and I stayed at San Michele this June. I have never experienced anything like it. The hotel itself is incredibly beautiful, the pictures simply don't to it justice. But what was more impressive was the warm welcome from the owners, who couldn't have been sweeter, to the over the top service from the equally warm staff!!!! We had... More

This hotel has it all. We had a patio outside our room with a sweeping view of the sea. I could have just stayed there all day but had to attend lectures as part of a summer school that was staged at the hotel. The pool is beautiful and long enough to do laps. I could have stayed there all... More

We stayed at the San Michele from 18th to the 25th June, 2015 travelling with Travelsphere. Our first view of the hotel was stunning and the lovely discoveries just kept on coming. We received a very warm welcome and were soon settled in our bedroom. Although the bedroom and bathroom were a little dated, the room was very large and... More
