Stayed for 4 days in June. The staff were all fantastic and very eager to help. Sometimes a little haphazard eg receptionists running the small bar but not knowing how to make a gin and tonic! The superior room was very pleasant although could have benefitted from a set of drawers for clothes as 4 hangers each was all that was supplied in the cupboards . I guess it's Italian not to supply flannels, bathrobe or a kettle .
The hotel was very clean and modem , and breakfast was nice with great coffee and pastries. We never ate there in the evenings mainly because we found it a very soulless dining area with everyone talking in quiet voices and it seeming very serious. We did find a fabulous restaurant about a mile up the hill.
The main issue for us was the road . The hotel is in the S bend of a road which it seems the Italians live driving up and down , especially bikers. This makes it extremely noisy , not a problem in the rooms if you kept the door closed but a constant noise in the garden. While I believe the traffic was worse when we were there due to a bank holiday, Idid attempt to cross the road one day to get to the car park and had to retreat there times! If I had been elderly I have no idea if I would ever have made it!
That said, if you need to be in this area then this is a good hotel.
