Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We appreciated very much our stay in Alberobello, just a few km from the center where there was à great fiesta la string the whole week making it difficult to get in Town with the car. Our choice turned out perfect, giving us the possibility of travelling in Pullia easily. The service at the hotel was excellent, and they solved our air conditionning issue very well.

This hotel did not live up to the reviews on tripadvisor.
We had booked a "superior" room but found it to be very small. Each day we had to move the bedside locker to have room to open the doors of the wardrobe fully so that we could open the drawers.
We felt cleanliness could be improved, there was a dead insect in our bathroom for a few days although the towels etc are changed daily. The carpark area is rough and dusty although quite spacious.
The pool temperature we felt was good but there were an unusually high number of flies around the pool which made sitting around the pool unpleasant. This may have been due to the fact that we only went there around 5 pm but the bales of straw partially covered with cloth in the seating area may not have helped.
Breakfast is continental and no hot food was available. Some fresh fruit was there each day but you would have to peel it yourself. There was cooked ham, cheese and a reasonable variety of breads but overall uninspiring. We did not eat otherwise in the hotel as it seemed that meals would only be put on by special request and there was no sign of a menu anywhere in eating area.
The setting is countryside and pleasant without being spectacular. It is somewhat spoiled by the large derelict dwelling alongside it as well as unfinished new building works on the grounds. I presume that these are for the services described on their website as "opening soon". There was no work going on on those buildings so I would not expect to see them finished anytime soon.
On 3 occasions we requested a drink from the bar at about 10.30. We were facilitated on the first occasion as there were some people having dinner that night. On the second occasion, we were told by the receptionist that the bar was closed and we were somewhat surprised 10 minutes later to see her replacement serve himself from the bar. On the third occasion, we were also told the bar was closed even though there were 3 staff members standing around chatting. The documentation in the room states that the bar is open until 11 pm.
Overall this hotel has potential but lacks the management and staff commitment and investment to make it achieve its potential.

Dear Sir, thanks for your opinion on Tripadvisor.

Our main goal is to satisfy our guests and when it does not happen we are deeply sorry.
Some of your criticisms (the room very small, insects around the pool, the parking rough and dusty) may be shared but also and above all contextualized: you stayed in a room of the ancient farmhouse, dating back to the nineteenth century, entirely made of stone and wood, with obvious structural and architectural constraint. Moreover, the hotel is located on 42 hectares of countryside, surrounded by olive and oak trees, so that besides silence, quiet and fresh air, there can be a few bugs and also a dusty parking area due to the wish of those who took care of the wise recovery of the ancient buildings avoiding much asphalt and cement to not affect the quality of the environment.
I'm glad to acquaint you with the restarting, in November, of work on the completion of our beauty farm; we decided to wait for winter, when the hotel will be closed, so that work could not interfere with the stay of our guests.
The red building you defined as a “large derelict” dwelling alongside our hotel, well-known as the “Casarossa”, is an property protected by Monuments and Fine Arts Office and a new company which recently acquired it will soon realize a memorial museum of it.

Apart from that, our young staff strives every day to satisfy all guests, and, actually, I think that being your opinion the only one negative by now, I believe that we surely have to grow and improve, but we are on the right track.

Thanks again and hope to see you soon at our Victor Country Hotel!

Andrea Sabato, Hotel Manager

Nice, relatively new place in the country with interesting architecture, about 3 miles away from the noise of town, i.e. very quiet. You do need to have a car if you want to stay here. Unfortunately there is no covered parking, so in summer the car gets very hot inside.

Our room was quite adequate and comfortable even though some details could be improved. We had a soft chair in our room, but no chair to sit at the desk and the shower did not work well. There is a spa and a open air swimming pool. Free wifi in the lobby, none in the rooms. International TV programs in English and German in addition to the usual italian channels.

Some stafff ( in the restaurant/bar) was of somewhat brittle charm. However after clearly stating what I wanted, they performed well enough. The laundry service was disappointing, since the promised same day delivery did not happen.

The restaurant serves breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was not very good, mostly italian sweet cakes and croissants plus one kind of cheese, boiled ham, hard boiled eggs etc. It was not possible to order a cooked beakfast (scrambled eggs, ommelett, bacon or similar) and the buffet did not always get refilled in time. The inexpensive restaurant ( € 25 per person for dinner) offered relatively few choices of varied quality and dessert resembled convenience/supermarket food. The service was inefficient and scatterbrained. There are better places in town.

We did enjoy our stay, though there definitely is room for improvement. All in all, given the relatively low price and if you can live with the above mentioned, the hotel offers good value for money.

Although this hotel is about 3kms from the town it is well worth it. It's situated on a sprawling property with it's own Trulli (cone shaped building) Our room was spotless spacious and comfortable although the bathroom could have been bigger. There is even a jogging or walking trek. The swimming pool is fantastic and surrounded by an olive grove. There is also some exercise machines by the pool area if you feel that way inclined. Not to be missed are the evening meals served al fresco overlooking the sprawling grounds. Breakfast is also a treat. There are bar facilities available all day. We found our stay tranquil and wished we could have stayed longer. There is absolutely nothing negative about this property and although at first we were disappointed that it was out of the main town in the end it was one of the things we enjoyed the most about our experience.

Room Tip: Try for a downstairs room as they have there own courtyard

The hotel and the location are amazing. The countryside is beautiful around Alberobello, and the town of Alberobello is a must-see.
Great things about Victor Country Hotel:
-Fantastic service.
-Very clean rooms
-The pool is beautiful--great spa feel
-The dining area is also beautifully designed
-Fun bikes to use free of charge
-The rooms have wood floors--such an great thing after nasty hotel carpets! They're very simple but clean and cheery. Perfect.
-The country location is very relaxing.

The only downside is that the rooms were quite small, but it didn't matter to us. It sufficed for our needs. I loved this hotel. We'd gladly spend more time there next time we're in Puglia and make it a relaxing week in the country.

We recently got married in alberobello and my extended family stayed here for 6nights. While the weather was a little colder than we would have hoped, the staff were wonderful. We had one or two late nights and the staff were brilliant. We were even able to borrow a guitar from them! It's a little bit out of the town but a local taxi man by the name of Vito made things very easy for us. Lovely people, very facilitating, with a nice pool area at the back. If the weather was good it would have had everything,

Surrounded by 42 hectares of mediterranean vegetation, it is inspired by the authentic beauty and unique surroundings. It consists of three buildings, the Uliveto, the Granaio and the Masseria of 1800, the heart of the resort: characterized by the harmonious beauty of traditional materials (the stone, wood and iron) respectfully recovered with a contemporary architectural style, it houses some Superior rooms, the Reception, the Bar, the Restaurant with views of the countryside and the Casa Rossa, a building of great historic and artistic interest. The Victor Country Hotel has 38 rooms throughout the three premises: Comfort, Superior and Junior Suite. The three constructions are adjacent one to the other yet different, namely the 19th century Masseria (the rural home), the colorful Uliveto (the olive grove) and the comfy Granaio ( the granary). The three facilities are finely decorated and furnished with high standard fittings. They all have air conditioning, direct dialing telephone, mini-bar, safe, cable TV, wake-up call service, bathroom with tub or shower and hair drier. Restaurant: great care is given to the selection of ingredients. Products locally produced, are selected to empower local producers and offer an exquisite experience.Special menus based on snails born in our breeding! The Fienile Massage Room, authentic stone house of the farmer of ancient time. To find the well-being and harmony between mind and body through natural treatments customized, we offer an intimate and private space, surrounded by greenery. Sports and nature lovers have many options among which we suggest: - trekking circuits and sticks for nordic walking along the "sheep-track" within the 42 hectares of the structure; - mountain bikes available for unforgettable rides in the green countryside, along the roads enclosed by the typical dry stone walls overlooking the blue sea; - the swimming pool located in a wonderful scenario of lavander flowers and olive trees; - fitness: an outdoor Easyline Technogym training circuit; Children can play freely in outdoor playgrounds in the greenery. Lovely sandy beaches and rocky coves in just over 20 km, choosing between the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea. ... more   less
