This is easily a 4* hotel.
Location: A bit tricky to get to. I would suggest a Satnav but once near there are many signs leading you to the hotel. The area around the hotel doesnt look the best but this is reflected in the price.
Staff; Were superb, everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable. They bared with me over my pigeon Italian. Although there didnt seem to be many staff they were there when you needed them and you didnt find yourself tripping over them.
Rooms. Our room was lovely, Towels were unneccesarily changed everyday and bed was made when we got back in. The bath leaked a bitespecially when the jet was on. (That didnt work too well but ok). We would of liked to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Food. Breakfast was very good, loads to eat including specialty chocolate, cakes and sweeties (incredible !).
The restaurant located at the hotel wasvery expensive even with the 15% discount offered to guests.
Facilities at hotel. We did not take advantage of the spa or gymnasium but spent the majority of the time just lounging around the pool. Still cant get used to the European idea of placing towels on sunbeds then buggering off for a few hours before needing them.
The bar was adequate and tv/radio ok if you dont mind the local tongue.
Out and About: A car is a must for the area. Perugia 10 minutes down the road and Lake Tresimino 15 minutes away. We took advantage of an evening classical music and a meal at Castel Rigoni. That was just a fabulous evening in a stoybook setting.
We went to Rome by car as the train fare was going to take 3 hours each way and about 100 euros return. Driving was hour 45 and parked near a metro. Easily best way of doing it.
Siena was about same time in opposite direction. An excellent area to be based.
When asked to fill in our comments at the end of the stay we happily gave a 9.5/10
