Our family of four had a fabulous stay at this impeccable hotel. The staff is so friendly and helpful, the breakfast was fresh and delicious, and our room was spotless (as was the whole hotel). The location is fantastic. We parked the car and walked all over town. There are many great restaurants nearby, and the staff is always ready... More

I'm sorry to have to write a negative review for something that is not the hotel management's fault, but in the end, it is important for travellers to know of the issue before booking as it *severely* affects your stay. The most important thing for me in a hotel is quality of sleep and I can honestly say that after... More

After a hair raising drive through really, tiny streets we reached Il Lavatoio (note to self - don't use sat nav once you reach the center of old Italian towns). The hotel is lovely - the old town 'washing room' preserved with a modern hotel attached. Wifi coverage was good although it got a little slow at night. The hotel... More

This hotel sits atop Castel di Sangro, and the investment in creating a beautiful property around an historical washing site is obvious. The staff (Cecco) was extremely helpful and courteous -- including pointing us to some great stops in the parco nazionale. We visited during shoulder season, but for 65E our double room was a ridiculous value (breakfast included). The... More

We visited Castel di Sangro during a family trip to Italy, connecting with family of our immigrant grandparents. The hotel is lovely with a courteous staff, nice rooms, comfortable beds and nice breakfast. The local church is next door and the bell tower chimes every 15 minutes, even during the night. Light sleepers should bring earplugs.

I stumbled on this hotel by accident and was hugely impressed. The staff were polite, brilliantly helpful and made me feel very welcome. The rooms are spotless, the decor stylish and the breakfast absolutely delicious. A great deal of time and money has clearly been invested in this hotel and it shows where ever you go in the building. I... More

We stayed four nights with our family, and it was a fabulous hotel. Clean, appealing, lovely hosts, and perfectly located in Castel di Sangro. I would recommend to anyone considering a visit not only in this town, but other nearby towns. It's a beautiful part of the country and il Lavatoio is an excellent spot to see it from!

From the moment that the owner, Pier Francesco, met my family and I at Napoli Airport (we paid extra for transfer to the hotel) he and his staff made up feel very welcome. The interior of the Hotel is a superbly restored wash house and a history lesson in itself. There is also a themed photographic exhibition and small library.The... More

We stayed here on June 3rd. Our group of eight consisted of two family groups. Both families descended from Castel di Sangro or another nearby town. We wouldn't have even visited Castel di Sangro otherwise, and that's a shame because this is an absolutely beautiful property beneath the cathedral. Our terrace had stunning views of Castel di Sangro and the... More
