All the praise others have heaped on this attractive hotel is justified. But you need to know about the restaurant. Though attached, it is a separate establishment. We had dinner: there was no menu, we chose fish with antipasti. There was no wine list - we chose one of the two local white wines offered (it was very good). Then the antipasti came and came - I have lost count of the number, but it was about a dozen. They were utterly delicious, made of the freshest fish. But unless you have a very hearty appetite indeed, and if you eat all the antipasti, you will have no room left for the pasta course and the main. We left some of the antipasti and had pasta, by which time we were full to bursting. Looking back, we would have been happier eating all the delicious antipasti & stopping there (which would have been no cheaper - it's a fixed price menu). So decide whether this is the right restaurant for you.
