HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The Castle Brando is a wonderful historic hotel on the Cap Course, not far from Bastia. We stayed there for three days on a two week tour of Corsica. In our experience, the hotel is unique in Corsica as there are not many historic hotels on the island. There are beautiful gardens surrounding the house, with nice places to sit...

We stayed in a room in the block overlooking the larger pool, there is a separate block overlooking the smaller pool or you may prefer to stay in the...

What an amazing place to stay. I stayed here with my husband and son whilst my husband is here for his business. We stayed in a suite with amazing picturesque views. There are views from everywhere. The chandeliers, wide hallways, tall ceilings and beautiful breakfast room breath taking. Have never stayed anywhere like this before. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.

This hotel is off the beaten track but worth the effort. You can access by a funicular and the rooms are decorated in antique furnishings. The food is good with breakfast having a good selection. The rooms are clean and the bathroom was a good size. A good experience

Hotel Castel Brando is located just north of Bastia. Convenient for travelers from the airport or the ferry, it is located in the quaint small village of Erbalunga. The hotel itself is romantic and has an old world charm. There are a number of restaurants located across the street, seaside, and a great boulangerie on the corner. For more variety...

The breakfast was the best we experienced on the island, the room was spotless with a very comfortable bed and beautifully appointed. The pool area was also gorgeous. Erbalunga is a...

Our first visit to Corsica and the first stop of our stay. Nice quaint hotel with a lovely outside sitting area and pool. Breakfast was good and certainly sufficient. The town is very small so everything was nearby . Worthwile a stay.

We had one night stay in Castel Brando, but we get relax time. Hotel in the center of village, near to all facilities, restaurants, bars, beach etc. Has nice pools (2) one for swimming and another to chill in the shadow of orange trees. Its good to stay there instead of Bastia town. Rooms are vell equipped and comfortable.
