Nice premises, but like staying with a relative who resents sharing his home. Staff pleasant and helpful but totally intimidated by owner/manager. He had no comprehension of the 'Best Western' info in the room of tea & coffee provision, ice to room etc. and resented our requests for them. Restaurant pretty poor food. Location too far from town. I 'd... More

We booked two suites and a twin bedded room seven months prior to arriving on August 15th 2014. The booking was thru Best Western (the hotel was titled The Best Western Oliveto). We were in contact with the hotel two... More

We have been here for three days and have nine to go. The location of hotel is fine, 10 mins walk to centre. The area is quiet. The hotel is very dated but clean. The hotel staff don't go out of their way to help though. Must be bad morale. Bring your own iron because they can't be bothered to... More

Dear Madam, First of all we thank you for the positive impression. Regarding your remarks,we have an ice machine and we would be very glad to provide you a bucket of ice, if you just have asked for it.Usually when a customer asks for ice is just for using it for the drinks, we have no way to know this...

This was the most relaxing holiday I've had for years. Mimo and his staff were fantastic at meeting my dietary needs. Fabulous location, room, and pool. Guests came from all over Europe so plenty of people to talk to. All was great!

The rooms were smallish but cleaned every day bathroom clean, balcony small but nice view, not... More

The hotel is clean and the swimming pool is nice. The rooms are a bit dated but are fine. It lacked atmosphere here though. The bar you have to ask reception for a drink which is a bit strange. The walk is quite long to the shops/restaurants. Walking down the hill is fine but then it seems quite a way... More

Very nice hotel with excellent service. We staid in a tripple room and we had a very good sized room. Cleening of the room was very good. Nice pool/Garden. Good food in the hotel restaurant. Located right by the lake.

I was worried by the previous reviews before I went, but no need, we loved it, the manager, although not an over the top smiley person, was very helpful and pleasant, as were all the other staff,a specially the restaurant staff, who were attentive and friendly. We stayed 1/2 board, as it wasn't much more than bed and breakfast, thinking... More
