Enormous room and en-suite, antique furniture appropriate to the rooms and buildings. Our room had a superb view over the village and to the sea. Not all rooms do have this view so if booking ask for a sea view. Excellent continental breakfast. Staff very friendly.

When we pulled up to the address we were surprised to see that it actually was an old castle. We had a room for 4 2 adults and 2 kids (9&12). The room was spectacular - wonderful views large and clean. You have to pull your bags up some stairs but this is no big deal. The walk to town... More

A fascinating hotel which really does feel like you are staying in a castle. Position is high on a hill so you have commanding views of beautiful Santa Margherita and the harbour below. It's also quite close to the main railway line which you soon find out if your window is open. But we had no problem sleeping with the... More

Great place to stay - beautiful room - clean - nice big bed - great breakfast - excellent value. We walked down the hill to a gorgeous wine bar that provided great anti pasto with apperal spritz. Can't remember it's name but it is just off the piazza and has little tables and one barrel with 3 stools round it.... More

Enjoyed our 2 night stay in this hotel. Really easy to find and very handy to Santa Margherita. Easy walk down to the village. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the rooms clean and relatively spacious. Nice breakfast and bonus of free parking and WIFI . This was just about the end of our 6 week holiday so...

Really interesting and quirky hotel. Great location with an easy walk to town. The communal areas in this hotel are beautiful. Really enjoyed drinking wine on the roof top while looking at fantastic views, although sun loungers could do with a clean. Rooms are fairly small, nice decor but the carpet needs to go! Really old and shabby and did... More

I spent one night at the La Vella Hotel and it was lovely. The room was huge, the bathroom clean and the breakfast was fine. The driveway was terrifying, but fortunately I wasn't driving! The view is amazing, especially from the roof. It was an easy 10 minute walk into town, which is very pretty and has a big variety... More

Amazing town. We absolutely loved it! We rented a scooter and explored all around. Such fun and great mix of nightlife and restaurants. Beach is ok, not very nice, but way more active and fun then Portofino. Must go to Stella Restaurant at the top of the mountain. Nicest staff and BEST meal. Would definitely go back to Santa Margherita... More

Hotel is located in the hills above the town. Driveway to hotel is steep and winding and parking is minimal-probably 4-5 cars so may have to double park. We stayed in "annex" part of the hotel with no air conditioning but didn't need though it was in July. We opened the windows and let evening breeze in. Rustic furnishings and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a large room with an ocean view. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but not very modern (part of the style of the hotel) and the toiletries were very basic. The bed was comfortable with very firm pillows and the room had air conditioning, but it was not super strong. The hotel... More
