We stayed for four nights at this hotel. The hotel is quaint, very old fashioned and has only two floors, we were above the bar. The breakfast room/bar area feels small and crowded with tables. The bedroom was a nice size, very clean, as was the bathroom, with linen and towels changed daily. The breakfast is described as American but it really is only continental breakfast and I was sad to see flies on the cold meat (which I didn't eat), lots of fresh fruit, oranges, peaches, plums, nectarines, which are left out so you can have them any time of the day. I think when we stayed there they had a staffing problem as we always had to go reception to get a drink from the bar during the day. If you don't have pool towels you can get towels from reception for €2.50 each per day. Beware of the midges around the pool during the day, I got badly bitten and had to buy insect repellent from the pharmacy next door. The hotel itself is in gated land and you have to buzz to get in, there is a nice lake with otters, swan and crane and a golf practice court and archery if you want. You can also use the bigger pool by the restaurant free of charge if you give your room number. The restaurant is very good but beware the English menu us significantly shortened from the Italian menu; you can charge your meal to the room. The American Bar, Limon, only opened one night as they had a private party. The café/music bar in the same complex is good for lunch and a beer. If you like kebabs the Instanbul Kebab shop across the road is good. There is a good restaurant a couple of minutes drive down the road next to a Lidl supermarket called Si Va Li - the food, wine and waiter/waitress service is brilliant, I wished we had found it earlier in the week!! A review of this hotel said that there were restaurants within walking distance but we didn't find any, there is not much place to walk on the main road and it is a very busy road. All in all I would recommend this hotel for a short stay or to use as a base to explore the area around Pisa.
