“Average for 4 star”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Stayed here on biz recently. Convenient for waht I needed but I would stay here for a holiday.
Business focussed with good standard of rooms. I was unlucky and was given room what seemed like miles away from the reception but I think by the sound of the work going on the nearer rooms are having amake over.
Restaurant is OK, food was OK and breakfast offered very good selection.

Easy to get to if travelling by car, just off A1 and A15. Wouldn't want to wander around the area at night but felt quite safe once in hotel. Efficient check-in. Good value if booking online. Clean

Nice hotel with a very helpful staff.
We stay for one night in it during our holidays trip by Italy. Is about 10 km from Parma and in our case we had a car and move easily between both localizations.

Lovely hotel and helpful friendly staff. However we were concerned about the number of young women who were flagging male drivers down at the garage across the road and then actually on the driveway approach to the hotel. We even saw a couple of ladies who appeared to be "working" in the lift and in the lobby. Not really a problem but we were a bit surprised as the hotel accepts families readily and several young children were staying at that time. Don't mean to sound offensive to these ladies in any way but just wondered if anyone else had encountered this whilst staying at the hotel!

Stayed here for 1 night on a business trip. The hotel seems to be on the edge of a dual carriageway, backed on to by a railway line, in the middle of an agricultural area. Apart from the hotel, there was nothing to do except admire the constant all day drilling and banging of the ongoing maintenance work.
A taxi into Parma was about 13 euros which is a necessity.
Service was good except that when I asked to borrow an iron for my shirt as I had a business dinner to attend, I was informed that the hotel didn't possess an iron and I had to ask housekeeping to do it. I was then informed that housekeeping had gone home for the weekend (at mid day on the Friday) so the answer was no! A world first for me!

We found this hotel by chance when we were travelling through Italy. For us it was a bargain as we visited in August which was their quiet season as it was a business hotel. We had a good family room with huge bathroom. The pool wasn't large, but the kids loved it as it was quiet without the hundreds of tourists we had encountered in resorts.

Breakfast was standard for 4 star with plenty of choice. We did not use the restaurant so I can not comment on it.

In response to previous reviews, we found the grounds, whilst not inspiring, clean and well maintained.

The location is out of town and is only suitable if you have your own vehicle, it is in a good location if heading down the motorway and need a stop off for the night.

This hotel was rated a four star, and the online photos bore that out. However, when we drove up to the hotel, our spirits dropped dramatically. The entrance and the grounds of the hotel were not well maintained at all. Weeds, cigarette butts, bits of trash everywhere. I was considering canceling, and paying the cancellation charge. We went into the hotel and found a pretty decent 3 star place. Staff was nice and accomodating.
It was a warm day, and our group wanted to use the pool. Upon entering the pool area, we were again very surprised by the lack of attention to the grounds. The lawn was dying in spots, needed mowing and trimming. The bushes were all overgrown and needed pruning. The flower beds were full of leaves and debris. The pool itself was nice, but the grounds were embarrasingly unkempt.
The rooms were nice and clean and the bathrooms likewise.
I complained to the management about the care of the grounds, and the manager claimed that it was a money problem. However, I felt that the worst of the problems could have been solved fairly cheaply and easily. No excuse for the grounds being so poorly maintained.

Restaurant was nice, but way overpriced, and menu was limited. We went to a nearby family restaurant and had a fine dinner.
