“Fine location, above harbour, views, room good, but breakfast was uninspiring.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Well located just above the old town, the famous bay of the Poets, so just above the spacious bayside piazza, plenty of bars and restaurants. Room was very comfortable, fine views of the town below, and bay. But breakfast was less than optimum? Better to find a good café below on piazza? Bread / croissants were basic. Too many rich cakes. And wifi was not free.

I've stayed at this hotel about a half dozen times and its one of those hotels that feels like home. It isn't perfect: the rooms are small drop the soap in the shower and you'd better get another bar as there's no room to bend over to pick it up. The amenities in the room are sometimes odd and the wifi is of variable quality. One minute great and a few minutes later terrible.

If at all possible chose a room with a view of the harbour and the town of Lerici. Better yet a balcony with a view of the harbour. The view is stunning - especially at sunset. You'll want to set as side at least an hour a day to enjoy the view and all the sounds of the town below. Early evening is a good time - while you're waiting for the restaurants to open (8 pm at the earliest)

As much as I like the view, the food in the hotel restaurant is even better. It's best if you like sea food. This is a fishing village and fish features prominently in the menues of all the mica restaurants. The portions are the right size so you can enjoy a couple courses and not feel overfill (north Americans may feel "ripped off" by the modest portions but unless you're a triathlete and need several million calories a day you are much better off with European portions).

The town of Lerici is quite charming. You can spend a very enjoyable couple hours walking from one end to the other along the waterfront. There is a ferry that will take you to Cinqua Terre.

The driveway to the hotel is a real "wish I'd left the range rover at home". Narrow, long, winding and a very steep descent. I find it very appealing - probably helps that I don't own a range river.

A GPS is also highly recommended - or at least look at the map as the hotel is not especially easy to find.

I accompanied my partner on a business trip and had an amazing time, the staff made me very welcome and comfortable while I was on my own and I spent many a happy hour sat on the balcony of our room admiring the fantastic view with a book and an expreso. Even the spa bath in the bathroom had a view. Breakfast was superb with a huge choice.The resort is very pretty with a huge bay to walk around. At this time of the year it was a little quiet with some restaurants closed but we still had a great time and even the weather was kind to us.

Room Tip: Room 341 has excellent sea view from balcony, room and bathroom !

You couldn't ask for a more beautiful view! Absolutely breathtaking. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was extremely nice with a huge tub. We stayed in a junior suite and had a good sized balcony with a couple of lounge chairs with nice comfortable cushions and a table and chairs. They have a sizable breakfast spread, and we appreciated the fresh juice maker. They have fruits and vegetables available where you can make your own juice to order. It's a nice walk downhill to the harbor where there are many restaurants with good food where you can enjoy that gorgeous view.

That being said, the service at the hotel was not very good.--The directions the hotel sent us were incorrect. We tried to call the hotel for directions because we got lost. I was put on hold for 5 minutes and I finally hung up because it was costing me roaming minutes on my cell phone. There were ants in the room when we arrived. When we told the person at the front desk, he said that it is to be expected because they are out in the country. We asked the front desk about getting to Cinque Terre. He suggested we take the boat versus the train. We asked if the Lovers Trail was open; and he said he didn't know. I would think the hotel should have knowledge of this since I would assume most visitors are interested in visiting the Cinque Terre. Anyway, the boats were not running that day because of the roughness of the water; so we took the train. Most of the ride is through dark tunnels--no views. I would recommend taking the boat, if possible. And the Lover's Trail had been closed for some time. We might have decided to skip the trip if we had known this in advance. We got only one terrycloth robe in the room. This was really Ok because my husband doesn't really care for the room robes; but what if he did want one and it wasn't provided? We tried to call the front desk multiple times; but the line was always busy. The elevator is tiny, especially for a hotel this size--holds three people max. No one offered to help us with the luggage checking in or checking out. We ran out of tissues the first day and they were not replaced the second day. Also didn't get any water glasses the second day. Both mornings we ate there the eggs and some other items at the breakfast buffet were not replenished until a guest told the staff. It's a shame because the area is beautiful. They apparently rely on the beauty of the area to continue to get customers.

The hotel is very small and cozy. It is the ideal place to come if you want to relax on their terrace or in their garden (which has an incredible view over the city/port).
The only thing that would make this place perfect would be a pool.
The staff is welcoming and prompt with any requests that you may have.
I would definitely go there again for the week end.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea view.
