Arriving at the hotel was slightly overwhelming, it is huge. In addition, having the Hippodrome next to it made it look rather obscene. However when we arrived in the lobby at reservations disappeared. Our welcome was warm and sincere. We were taken to our room, a huge, luxurious space with views of the garden. However our TV didnt have any signal so we were moved instantly to another room which had a view of the racecourse- result!!! very high tech room with a push button control panel for lights, air con etc.
Reception were very friendly, especially Dilala Scalone- she was absolutely lovely, very helpful. My husband casually mentioned to her that we would be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary that evening and would dine in the restaurant before going our to the races. We were greeted in the restaurant with a glass of prosecco and some anti pasti on the house- what a lovely gesture. When we returned to our room there was another little treat, courtesy of Dilala.
The races were the icing on the cake- these go on Wednesday and Saturday evenings.
Breakfast was ok, you could ask for a variety of coffees and eggs. They didn't seem to replenish breakfast so if you get there late be prepared to have a limited selection.
Gym area was nice and the pool areas lovely. We didnt use the indoor pool but it looked inviting. The hotel was a fair distance from the centre, you really must have a car to get around, unless you intend staying in the hotel. This would be a shame as Syracuse is lovely. Ortiga has a host of cobbled streets with lovely restaurants and shopping is handy. We went to Don Camillo- high end restaurant which was amazing. Booking is highly recommened- as is an empty stomach as the portions are enormous!
A really great hotel, yes out of the centre but well worth it.
