Thiis hotel is situated just a few short miles from the fantastic village of Dolceacqua (as recently featured on bbc's F1 show and recommendedby Jensen Button and David Coulthard) It is situated on a quiet road amidst beautiful countryside/ The hotels own beautiful gardens and poolarea are very much 4 star and would put a hotel costing 3 x times as much to shame .The rooms are simply furnished but are clean and comfortable (much what you would expect from a good quality 3 star hotel .I saw a review which criticised the food and can only say that writer either doesn't know what he is talking about or came across the hotel on a bad (and entirely untypical day).My family and I have stayed at this hotel (or in its very comfortable apartments situated just across the road in their own beautiful garden) on many occasions over the past 20 years or so and have always found the food to be excellent . Although we now have our own house in the area my wife and I always make a point of dining at the hotel at least once during our stay. The hotel is family owned and run and the family and their staff are unfailingly pleasant, welcoming and helpful.
All in all a hidden gem !!
