“Tango heaven in paradise Triora!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2011

We loved staying here for an Argentine Tango weekend (they have one every last-weekend in May, and 2012 is already lined-up with Buenos Aires tango dancer, tango film-maker & author of tango books, Chan Park, so we shall be back then) and it was perhaps the best holiday we have had in over 25 years! A local organizes English-Italian "Tango Argentino" long weekends and all activity happens at this medieval monastery, now a 'bella' mountain hotel. Great food! Lots of space, free WiFi and views to die for. It is located at the entrance to a mysterious medieval village, once a middle ages citadel of great repute, where you will be lost in time. Only 35 minutes to the sea too! 100 stars out of 100.

Room Tip: Fitness Centre not needed as Triora is a fitness centre! A 10 minute walk around those hilly streets...

This was an interesting and unexpected place -- a nice hotel right where we needed it! We really liked it’s position in the valley, up and away from the busy Mediterranean seaside, and had fun walking through all of Triora’s narrow passages. This medieval village has such fascinating history, with the witch trials and world war and various uses of the hotel. I have to give the family a LOT of credit for continuing to run Colomba D’Oro, it’s a huge old building and must be incredibly costly to operate/maintain (yet rooms are still quite reasonably priced). Everyone was really friendly, the family were gracious hosts, and the staff seemed to be on hand all the time.

The rooms are unique: it felt more like being in a mountain chalet than in a hotel. Kind of Spartan, but plenty comfortable and with a lot of character (and a fantastic view!)

The food options in Triora are virtually non-existent, so dinner in the hotel is really your only choice. It was about $35 per adult, not including wine. There was a LOT of food (all you can eat - mostly a buffet). We’d heard that years ago Colomba D’Oro served a 25-30 course dinner, but I think it’s down to just 15-20 now. Glad we only stayed one night or we would have felt like the money was a lot (and would probably have gained a couple pounds too!)

The rooms on the top floor are not as quiet as you would expect. The view is great though!

Our hosts Simona and Pier were friendly,warm and inviting. We took the full board option with two of our midday meals in the form of a hamper which we enjoyed while walking through the breathtaking mountains. The meals were superb largely of local produce, enjoyed with local wine while we watched the mood of the town change as the day faded into night. The view from our balcony was nothing short of spectacular.
We were train travellers arriving from Sanremo by local bus. Only 3 euro for the two of us!
Our stay at Colomba D'oro will help to sustain our souls for many years to come.

Hotel Ristorante Colomba d'Oro was the highlight of our four week travels through Europe this summer. The food, the hosts, the location were all splendid. We were well taken care of and could not have asked for more. We loved our room overlooking the valley. Service was excellent and personal. We will return. In fact, we wish we had never left.

Room Tip: Many rooms have a balcony, ask for one.

Stayed here just for one night as part of a week's stay in the area, and what a lovely place it was. The view from the terrace - and from all the rooms, in fact - is fantastic. The welcome is warm and friendly, the service excellent, and the food fantastic. OK, the rooms could do with a bit more soundproofing and upgrading from what looks like a 70s refurb - but, then, this is a family hotel run in the best way, so we must simply be glad that it hasn't been steamrollered by a bigger company. Altogether delightful - though, of course, being in the foothills of the Maritime Alps, expect the summer weather to be a bit temperamental (and be ready to head off to Taggia beach when the clouds come in!).

Room Tip: ask for one with a balcony

We found this hotel by chance. We're really glad we did. This is a really great place. The whole experience was perfect. Not only were we made to feel welcome, we felt really involved overall. You can't improve on the service provided which was really genuine. We were introduced to other guests and local people, which all made us feel like were part of the community. This is in addition to the unbelievably beautiful area it is in. We have visited the south of France for many years, but enjoyed this region far more, owing to it's less intense feel - as the SoF was many many years ago. We will definitely be returning. In fact, we are planning this now. Don't waste time searching anymore, just click the "book now" button...
