Having had a delicious lunch in Juan les pins we thought we'd be back home in montreux within 6 hours but 75 kms short of Turin I was feeling tired so thought we'd look for somewhere interesting to stay the night with a good restaurant.
The best described hotel was the Palazzo,we called en route,they confirmed a rate immediately of 200 euros for a suite and asked us what time we'd like to eat dinner,great reception.
However,when we arrived we had the best welcome we've ever experienced in any hotel in the world,the receptionist showed us to our room and confirmed that our car would be parked securely overnight (which I wasn't charged for),well worth doing as the streets are narrow and parking is limited.
The room was extremely comfortable,I'm not sure whether any rooms have great views as the streets are so narrow.The bar is clearly the most popular place in town both evenings and from 8am in the morning where the smart locals meet for coffee.In the evening with each drink they delivered fabulous little plates of local meats/cheeses and tasty bits.Having enjoyed several glasses of excellent local white wine I would have been happy to retire to my room but we were booked in for dinner and the restaurant did not disappoint,the standard of the food and wines were superb.
Overall a very pleasant experience,good standard,willing and extremely competent staff at a very fair price,I will stay again.
