I have stayed at this hotel every summer for the past several years. My wife and I love the region and the hotel's position. We generally spend 2 weeks per year in Italy and this hotel has been a favourite amongst the places that we like to stay. It was not glamorous but represented fair value for its position on... More

This hotel really does deserve its five stars and if you are looking for a location for a honeymoon or a special occasion, this is the place. As soon as you enter the hotel gates, travel up the winding driveway and walk into the foyer, you know this is a five star hotel. Beautiful decor and very well presented staff,... More

We drove here and the hotel is located off a small winding road, but the hotel is clearly signposted with a large "excelsior" sign so you don't miss it. Once at the top of the ramp it is clear that the hotel is more of a classic than modern style. The lobby area is very opulent with a grand pianist... More

So the car park is chaotic, the decor very much Lord Byron like but the sea access, terrace,service and views are exquisite. Make sure you hire a vespa as the parking and driving is hectic. I'll be coming back.

We stayed for 3 nights, as part of our honeymoon road trip around northern Italy. We were greeted by a concierge, who parked our car for us. We were then offered complementary drinks, which we accepted: anything off the menu. I had a beer and my wife had a cocktail.. With hindsight, perhaps I should have ordered the Dom Perignon... More
