We stayed in the Hotel Astoria from 23rd to 30th June 2012. We booked through Inghams having had a good experience of their hotels previously. The location and room were very good and the pool certainly helped a lot due to the unusually hot temperatures we had but that is as far as the good review can go. We booked half board and expected a certain level of food and menu as it is rated a 4 star hotel. Every single night consisted of a pasta course with a very limited sauce, repeated at least twice during the 7 nights we stayed. This was followed, every night, by meat and potatoes with no Italian influence at all. The hotel could also be classed as a fast food restaurant as well, every night the waiting staff made sure you ploughed through the 4 courses in less than an hour, frequently hovering over your shoulder and removing your plate before you had finished chewing your last mouthful. My partner and I are in our 30's and were expecting far more Italian food from a 4 star Inghams hotel. We actually resorted to eating out at La Cascina (excellent btw) so that we could experience Italian restaurant cuisine. Following this review I am composing a letter to Inghams complaining about their description of this hotel in their brochure. I would advise to avoid if you are wanting a taste of Italy.
