We stayed here one night having arrived on the ferry in Livorno. We would have been there in 15 minutes from disembarkation if we could have found the hotel - it was dark by the time we were trying. My tip here is, once you find the signs, stay strong and keep going up the hill EVEN when you think you have left the village - you will eventually find another sign... due to our late arrival, the restaurant was technically closed but we begged and were served a meal based on what was left available - it wasn't the worlds best but we were beyond caring. The room was OK, nothing stunning, a bit too modern and jaded to fit the period but it was comfortable and the bathroom was good.
In the morning, we explored the hotel grounds and discovered the terrace. I dont think many of the rooms have a sea view but there is a good view from the terrace. Definitely better than a hotel in Livorno.
NB. We were on a motorbike. There is a private car park that you can not watch from your room but its relatively secluded and hidden from the road. There were other bikers staying there and the receptionist gave me a sympathetic grin when I arrived so I think they are used to bikers...rooms are big enough for stashing bike boxes without breaking an ankle.
