This hotel hit the wow factor for my husband and I. We stayed only two nights, would have loved longer. The room was sparce, but spacious, in keeping with an old castle, with a large bathroom, shower over bath. The restaurant was good, we ate there for all breakfasts and dinner. On our last night the staff advised us of... More

We were not as impressed as others. The castle has been well restored, but some of the internal furnisihings are rather pretentious. Our room was spacious and cool, but had low quality bath products and a cheap, ill fitting jacuzzi. Very helpful and smiling staff, particularly in the breakfast room, but why are hotels in this category still serving tinned... More

After a thorough search for a hotel in the town we coincidentally found this most adourable place. A historic structure that has been converted to an hotel has a magnificient view of the village. We stayed at suite nr. 66 that incorporates a large terrace situated towards north and east where you can enjoy the stunning view of the sun... More

Magnificent views, ambiance and what a location on top of the hill. Staff made us feel so welcome and couldn't do enough for us. Would recommend this hotel highly and will definitely be back as food was good and reasonably priced and we relaxed ++

We both thought that this hotel was truly excellent. The location is magnificent, though do take a taxi if you are coming by train as the hotel is up a very steep hill on the peninsula. The staff were charming and made us feel very welcome. The views from the hotel were superb. We only ate at the hotel for... More

We were staying elsewhere in Sestri Levante but came up to the hotel for afternoon tea. Obviously the place to be. Young Italian girl and her family celebrating her first communion. Friendly staff and for the location and views great value

The hotel is an old castle and the location and the view are just amazing. Walking inside it looks like living in a fairy tale. The rooms are big and so are the bathroom, including a Jacuzzi. A little far walking from restaurants in Sestri Levante.

although the view from this hotel is great, and the breakfast room view is really nice to start off the day, it cannot rate it very good or excellent because the hotel is not honest about the services given. the website is mentionning WIFI but this is only accesible at reception. the personnel says the tick walls of the castle...

As you drive into the parking you know that this is going to be a special place to stay. The historic castle converted into a hotel is decorated with beautiful art and pieces from the area. Each room is decorated with unique pieces. There is a newer part of the hotel which I did not view but I would recommend... More

We came here for some cocktails one evening and were greatly disappointed. With such beautiful grounds, you would think they would have made more of an effort with the outdoor bar, but it was small, cramped and lacking of charm. Service was also poor, even though there was hardly anyone there at the bar or the restaurant. I hope this... More
