We were so looking forward to our stay at Villa Selva Country House in the beautiful Umbria region of Italy. Firstly, there was no view from our room (Room 2) in an area where it's almost impossible not to see rolling hills for miles and miles. The decor of the room was tired and relied heavily on metal vine leaves and dried things in vases. The layout of the room was clumsy in that the bed was pushed so close to the wall and the many shelves that it was very difficult to get past. The placement of the toilet blocked the shower door too. The dining room for breakfast was quite dark and the food offering fairly limited. There was no shared lounge, just a billiard table filling a room that could have been used for this purpose.
Despite there being no tea- or coffee-making facilities in your room, you are charged when you ask for one at the desk. On a bright day when there were people sitting around the large pool, the pool cover was left resolutely on, and the chairs stacked in piles around it. On most days, a dog was left tied up near the front door to the hotel for hours, and barked incessantly.
On a positive note, the room rates are quite reasonable, and we loved the region around the hotel.
I mention these points in the spirit of constructive criticism, as the Country House has a lot of possibilities with fresher decor and room layout, and more attention to the comfort of their guests.
