I stayed there with my partner for his 30th birthday. It was absolutely charming! We stayed in a superior spa room... my favourite part of the place was the bathtub and the high ceiling. We had a spa bath tub and it was quite relaxing. The only complaint was the shower head, it was the poorest water pressure I've ever experienced! It took me about 30 minutes to have a decent shower since water was slowly dripping out of the tap. There wasn't any problems with the sink though. The place was spotless, very clean. The bed was quite comfy and it was incredibly quiet. I really enjoyed the view on our balcony as well, me and my partner spent our evenings enjoying a glass of wine on the patio. The breakfast was good, my partner claimed that it was the best muesli he's ever had! As for the restaurant Il Cacciatore, I wasn't the biggest fan as I felt it was a complete rip off. We wanted to take advantage of the pizza special but the deal was cancelled that night due to the busyness of the kitchen.
I'd definitely stay there again, just maybe check the showers before settling into the room!
