Overall, we really enjoyed our trip to the Pellirocco but there were certainly issues.
We stayed in the Bettie Page room, which felt like no one had really thought about it's design beyond acquiring bits to put in the room. The wasn't a plug socket near any of the available mirrors so drying your hair is fairly challenging. There's a TV but it faces the middle of the room so to watch it you either have to move furniture or sit on the floor. And we had a balcony which was nice but basically just for smokers because there aren't chairs out there so pretty much all you can do it stand for a while then come inside again.
Buttons were falling off the upholstery and a few knobs had fallen off the dresser which made the room look like it needed some TLC.
There weren't any robes in the room which is a little luxury I always look forward to.
On the first day, we didn't have any milk in our room (which I'm sure was just an oversight) and the receptionist gave us a little jug of fresh milk which was lovely. My problem with that is that whoever cleaned the room the remaining milk in the room for all of the (hot) following day and when we returned, it had morphed into a solid jug of smelly doom.
Oh and breakfast wasn't included which I think is a little cheap when you're paying £145 a night.
There were certainly good points though! The bar was well decorated and I had one of the best cocktails of my life. Both the receptionists we spoke to her friendly and helpful, and the location is great.
I think the place could be vastly improved by paying less attention to the "rock and roll" and a little more to the "hotel" because a few quick, cheap and easy fixes could make a good hotel a great one.
