A wonderful, quiet & relaxing holiday. The staff were fabulous, the buffet breakfast delightful, the swimming pool/Jacuzzi/sun loungers clean & tidy, the room had a wonderful sized bathroom/shower, comfy beds and excellent storage space, the outside patio had a table & chairs and sun loungers too, so we were spoilt for choice in the sun bathing department.

First I have to say that we enjoyed our stay in Lipari and the Hotel Bougainville was pretty, convenient and relaxing. However there seems like a trend with other reviews - in Summer this is probably a very busy and excellent hotel choice, but out of season (or September is probably more accurately shoulder-season) it is quiet and there are...

Pluses, room was clean and attractive and location ok. But to discover no food available at midday and no shuttle available to get to town left us on a water diet. It was hot and sunny so walking not a good option. We were also surprised to be asked to pay for a towel to use at the pool in... More

We are a party of 6 travelling from Australia with an age group between 35 and 60.We had heard about the Aeolian Islands but were clueless about what to expect in Lipari. We were excited when Hotel staff picked us up from the wharf and held on with white knuckles as the driver manoeuvred his vehicle through oblivious pedestrians, narrow... More

Hotel was great, specially the service. Location was also a plus, shutle service to the port was more than useful. Swimming pool was great as well as the access to the city center. Views are match what offer on the website.

The staff here are great and exceeded our expectations. The hotel is relatively new and the rooms clean and spacious. We chose rooms with the sea views and they were great. Breakfasts were good and evening meals were ok but there is also plenty of choice in the town. There is a free shuttle into town that we used a... More

Fabulous place to stay, incredible value for money, rooms spacious, we had a balcony looking towards the sea and another facing inland too. Our friends' room had a bath. Comfortable king size bed. Sheets good but towels old and tired. Easy walk into town (10 minutes) - ask for directions as there is a cut through footpath, do not take... More

Arrived to warm reception and shown to beautiful traditional room which was very clean and had a really great bathroom with very fancy shower! The pool area was very quiet and clean. The breakfast was great and it's only a five minute walk to the centre of town. Perfect.

The staff in the Hotel Bougainville are all helpful. The front desk helped us arrange our excursion to Stromboli, which made things much less confusing (there are so many choices!). The facility is absolutely perfect. Additionally, the price was very reasonable. The pool area looked lovely, but we did not have time to use it. We also did not use... More
