This hotel cannot be faulted for what it is - a grand hotel in a small town near Pisa, with a spa and a fantastic dining room. But we found it soulless, partly because of its sheer size and partly because it has no garden. There is space to lie on sunloungers but only on terraces next to the monstrous building. I cannot comment on the spa (waste of space for me) but the food was of top quality, and so much of it that after three days I ended up eating sorbets for pudding - what a waste ! The hotel is within ten minutes' walk of the local railway station, from where you can catch a train every 30 minutes either to Pisa or, in the other direction, to the lovely walled town of Lucca. BEWARE - you need to buy your ticket before getting on the train (you can buy them from the hotel reception) AND you need to validate it by sticking it into a machine on the station platform before boarding the train. And on the way back, the machine is not on the same platform as the train leaves from. The conductor is relatively kind to English tourists apparently. Once in Pisa, you are within ten minutes' walk of the Tower and the Duomo but there are NO SIGNS from the station to tell you which direction to walk. Staggering carelessness, or worse, on the part of the authorities. Take a map or a smartphone with you.
