Took a short 3 day break to Rimini to see the Adriatic Coastline for the first time which was then prime position to head to San Marino to watch England play their WCQ.
Flew into Bologna from Heathrow with BA. Took the bus outside the airport to Bologna Central train station (roughly 30mins / 6 Euros pp). Had already booked the High Speed Train to Rimini online which was a pleasant journey and quite straight forward to find (roughly 50mins / £40pp single 1st Class)
Google mapped the hotel from Rimini train station - turn right out of the station and 400 yards down the road turn right again and go under the trainline which brings you out on the main road leading all the way down to the sea / Grand Hotel.
We chose B&B at the Hotel Milton based on location and cost enjoying the proximity to the beach and the 25min walk back into Rimini town centre which we did on numerous occasions.
Hotel itself is clean and tidy but slightly quirky ... feels like its stuck back in the 60s and definitely not modern and contemporary but you couldn't fault the service.
Delight to see the sea & blue sky every morning from the sea view room although we did have one night where the black out shutter didn't work. Coffee & Tea available in the room but no milk sachets so had to milk jug from reception .. bizarre.
Breakfast was somewhat disappointing ... meat / cheese & bread did not look fresh as not displayed with any refrigeration so looked a little dry and unappealing when we finally turned up. However, we did love the choice of cakes and shortbreads.
Splash pool and jacuzzi was enjoyable but we both seemed to pick up itchy backs so unsure whether there could possibly be a hygiene issue with these facilities.
Suited our short break but wouldn't recommend to family or friends
