I have decided that if a hotel is clean and well-maintained then the staff can MAKE the holiday. I can't pick out one person as everyone, reception staff, restaurant staff ,barstaff and cleaners were so pleasant and charming.
The hotel is less than 5 minutes slow walk from the main square, but leave by the back entrance as (being built on a hill) its confusing to use the front entrance.
The airconditioning is the best ever- NO night time noise or unpleasant blasts.
I enjoyed the food, some said that breakfast was boring, but the Italians dont demand a full fry up like some English. I had what I have at home, fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast and delicious coffee.
Dinner is a choice of 4 starters and 4 main courses, SILVER SERVICE! The local wine is delicious and you can buy a full bottle and have it put away for you to finish later. I enjoyed every meal. Try lunch on the roof terrace, a good selection of hot and cold beautifully presented food.
The pool is small but very pleasant for a refreshing swim at the end of the day, towels are provided by the lovely barstaff up there(no charge).
There are about 50 steps up to the back entrance of the hotel, but, I would hope that anyone with mobility problems wouldn,t be visiting that part of Italy.
