Every once in awhile the stars align, magic happens, and you find the perfect hotel.....Bella Notte is just such a place. Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, we thought we would find a good hotel and instead found a truly excellent one where the owners have paid attention to every detail and are on the premises to make sure their guests needs are truly satisfied.
We arrived after a long flight from the East Coast on April 17th to a warm and friendly welcome and with an offer of refreshments from Carol. We then checked out our room, and to our surprise it rose way beyond our expectations. Our initial amazement came from the sheer size of this room.....from the reviews on this board every room is unusually large. It was quickly followed by our personal ‘must haves’, which is a clean quiet room. Bella Notte is a quiet, spotless, well-appointed room with a comfortable bed and deluxe linens. This is a family run hotel that was built from the ground up with only the best materials. From the furniture to the heated bathroom tiles, everything is high end and clearly no expense was spared to make this that elusive ‘perfect place’ to call your home away from home. The longer we stayed the more we noticed the little details inside and outside of the hotel that separate this from the big chain hotels.
These owners genuinely care about this hotel and their guests, and it absolutely shows in every single thing they do. They offer a well thought out breakfast, bottles of refreshments, luxurious robes and more importantly, the one thing that seems to fall short in the best five star hotel these days, and that’s the feeling that you...that your stay in their hotel, matters to them.
This is a remarkable hotel, run by owners and a staff that greet you like old friends, and by the time you check out, make you feel as though you left family.
