A "different" hotel, attached to the restaurant. Clean and tidy. We had room 7, pleasant enough, part of the old building with metal window frames, and secondary glazing. Now it has been getting cold this week, so when we went to bed it was a little disappointing. Bed was so soft, it was like sitting on a sponge. The pillows... More

We stayed as a family of three adults, booking a double and a twin room, November 22nd 2014 The rooms were in different blocks. We had difficulty in accessing hotel as restaurant was closed. After wandering around the car park in the pouring rain, a waiter showed us in. No information about fire precautions or WiFi codes or any help... More

Stayed here for one night last week for business. The rooms are of a good standard. TV's are of a good size. The room had a kitchen area and a well equipped bathroom with jacuzzi bath. The restaurant and bar area was poor. Food menu was dire and the breakfast even worse. Would not stop here again.

Our experience was very different to some of the recent reviews. We had a lovely room on the ground floor at the back of the restaurant - large, tastefully furnished and clean with air conditioning which you don't normally expect in a B&B which was such a bonus on a very warm humid summers night! Tasty breakfast cooked to our... More

The Bella Vita seems to be run as a convenience to the owners rather than a customer focused business. The Check-in desk is in the restaurant, inaccessible from the room block and certainly not user friendly. The room was adequate enough but there was no welcome / information pack / fire and safety notices and as there was no access... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night, room was a reasonable size however i felt the ensuite was a little on the small size and room was very dark. The bedroom had cobwebs in the corner of the room and the bed linen had black marks on them. Reasonable rate for the size of the room, which if a little... More

This charming hotel offers a unique, traditional experience, with the added advantage of fine dining in their restaurant, that offers both amazing dishes and lots of vegetarian choices upon request. In addition, the breakfasts were second to none. The hotel is a little unconventional in that access is via the restaurant and therefore, there is no reception to speak of... More

I stay at the Bella Vita 2 to 3 times a week on business. The hotel is in a perfect location and Giorgio and his team are absolutely fantastic. The rooms are great and the food is excellent. I highly recommend the Bella Vita for both business and pleasure.

We had booked to stay at love and let live when we got there he was overbooked and sent us here! It's mouldy, smelly, dated and noisy to sleep! Parking very handy. It seriously the most awful over night stay I've ever had! The room we got wasn't shown online!
