This is a nice hotel located about 1km outside Tempio Pausania and in quiet countryside. It is quite large but even when it is full, it never seems crowded or busy. In fact, sometimes I wondered where all the guests were, as there was rarely anyone in the bar in the evening! The staff are very warm and welcoming, and... More

The lady on reception was very helpful and took us to our room. The room was very dark and cool, very spacious but was in need of a deep clean, the floor did not feel very clean. The beds were comfortable, plenty of clean towels and the mini fridge was ideal for chilling water and wine. Our terrace was a... More

The hotel was clean and basic. We found it comfortable and adequate for a base to explore Northern Sardinia. Breakfast was continental but very good. Selection of cereals, cakes and the staple ham and cheese for most Italian B&Bs. The room was basic with a double bed, shower room with hair-dryer. Lots of towels where provided and changed daily (if... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Pausania Inn. Other travelers on TripAdvisor have described the hotel as a self-contained village, so admittedly it can be a little confusing at first, with its somewhat sprawling layout. We are happy, however, that after finding your bearings you were able to enjoy the hotel’s many common... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Owned and run by the Vargiu family, the hotel is located in Tempio Pausania, in Sardinia, one short kilometer from the town center. Immersed in the peace and quiet of Gallura's wooded countryside, Pausania Inn is an ideal base from which to explore many destinations in Northern Sardinia, and it is especially suited to visitors who are looking to enjoy a vacation away from the hustle and bustle of seaside resorts. Surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation (including cork oaks, myrtle, and lentisk), the hotel greets you with stunning views of the Mountains of Aggius. Pausania Inn comprises 60 air-conditioned rooms, simple and unfussy, but furnished with care; some have a private little garden or a balcony. On arrival at the hotel, you will immediately be delighted by the beautiful views from its common areas. In the large lobby, you will find books by local authors describing the Sardinian heritage, maps and brochures for you to take, and a charming display of costumes, masks, textiles and other local crafts. On site there is a bar, a restaurant specialized in regional and national cuisine, a panoramic terrace, and a nice outdoor swimming pool. The hotel also has a tennis court, and a large parking area, which can accommodate up to 150 cars, as well as big tour buses. Friendly atmosphere, attention to detail, discretion and dedication to hospitality are our trademarks. The beauty and tranquility of the surrounding countryside, as well as the warm welcome and the attentive service of our staff, will make your holiday with us a source of many cherished memories. ... more   less
