The hotel is in a good position as it is only a ten minute drive to Syracuse. The motorway is close but you don't notice it so it is not an issue. The grounds are lovely with beautifully manicured lawns and gardens and the pool area is fantastic. There are lots of places to sit or lounge around the pool or just enjoy the garden.
We found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and efficient.
The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of cheeses, pastries, fresh fruits, breads, eggs and bacon. We only had dinner in the restaurant once and it was satisfactory. Due to the weather we had to eat in the same room we had breakfast but as a restaurant we found it lacking character and too large plus the breakfast things stored in the corners for the following morning were a little off putting.
We stayed in a junior suite. It was clean and light and the bed was very comfortable although if people in the next room talk loudly you can hear them. The bathroom was excellent with a large shower. The room itself is set up very well with different areas. The downstairs area has a sofa, desk and a large wardrobe making it a great place to leave the cases etc. The bedroom is upstairs and has a door leading to the terrace.
Overall we thought it was an ideal place to explore Syracuse from.
