“What a pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

We loved our stay here. They welcomed us with chilled coffetini's, helped us locate the nearest mall because the airport lost our luggage and were brilliant with the kids. Our family room was perfect. Big bed for us, bunkbed (transformed from a sofa... very cool) for the older kids and a cot ready and set up for the toddler. Great food, well priced, really nice people and close to the airport. Would come back in a heart beat.

We stayed one overnight in this hotel , since it is perfectly located near the La Mezia Airport.
One of the big advantages of the hotel is the swimming pool and a well maintained little garden. The rooms and bathroom are perfectly clean . The airconditioning system is noisy , so we had to shut it down during the night. Breakfast is poor but OK, depends on the price you had to pay for the stay. We had a low price deal so it was value for money. We also dined at the hotel , but that I would not recommend. The food and wine served is below standard.
The hotel is also well situated if you want to visit the nearby "virgin" beaches.

For many Lamezia Terme Airport or Station is their gateway to Calabria. For us it had been thus for years and now we live about an hour and a half away. But sometimes it's necessary to stay overnight nearby Lamezia to catch an early flight ... and that's how we stumbled across the four-star Gullo Hotel.

We were attracted by a special offer and stayed there to have a longer lie-in in the morning before catching an early morning flight.

Everything about the ultra-modern Gullo was first class ... from the friendly reception, the room, the restaurant, the breakfast and above all the ambience ... and all this tucked away in a small Calabrian village no more than 15 minutes from Lamezia and even less from the Tyrrenian Sea. There's even a small swimming pool and an outside terrace.

There were, we noticed, other places to eat nearby and were initially torn between eating out (normally our prefered option) or eating in; we opted for the latter and were not disappointed. There was a set menu at a very reasonable price but we were not up to a Calabrian feast and just told the waiter what we'd like (often an option in Calabria) and it was cooked for us. We also had a carafe of the excellent local wine and a bottle of water ... and all for 24€. Had the weather been a little warmer we could have had dinner (and breakfast) on the terrace by the pool.

Overall our brief stay at the Gullo was a rewarding experience ... and we will definitely stay here again for a more relaxing start to flight-day.

Had there been some means of getting to Lamezia Airport and leave the car at the Gullo in their secure car park, we would have opted for that instead of the chaos of parking at Lamezia ... perhaps that is something that might be offered in the future.

A highly recommended overnight stop ... perhaps too a good place to holiday with sea, beautiful countryside, airport, station and Due Mare mall all within a few minutes drive.

After a long drive from Rome on our way to Palermo we stumbled on this gem of a hotel. This freshly renovated hotel is sparkling clean with friendly staff who went out of our way to make us comfortable. We stayed in the disabled room as the rest of the hotel was full. What a lovely room with a nice view balcony, loads of space. Breakfast was simply excellent next to the sparkling pool with the best cuppachino I had during my whole stay in Italy. Excellent value for money. Emile Terblanche, Cape Town, South Africa
