“Very nice hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

We were very satisfied with services and location of the hotel. Hotel has the best location, just in the middle of northern Sardinia, to see all nice beaches in the north. Friendly staff and clean nice rooms

Stayed just one night on a cycling tour so can't comment on cost. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Very nice pool which was great after a long steep cycle ride. The hotel had a slight feel of faded glories, the gardens seemed a bit neglectedband some of the less used areas were a bit dusty.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on our inn. We are very happy that our staff was helpful, and also that you were able to enjoy the pool after a long day out on your bike. Regarding the gardens, it stands to be pointed out that this past spring was exceptionally rainy… Indeed, it hadn’t rained so much and so often in this corner of the world in decades! It’s no surprise that the vegetation looked a little overgrown and unruly during your visit, but we are confident you’ll find everything in top shape, and far from faded, if you ever get the chance to come visit us again. We look forward to that!

Best,

Thoroughly enjoyed our one week half board stay in this attractively situated hotel which is located in an area giving good access to Northern parts of the Island. Good value and a most welcoming family management and staff

On our first visit to Sardinia travelling with a mixed mature group of 33 people the hotel provided an excellent base for visiting the attractions found in the area.
Staying on half-board basis we found the food good and the staff friendly and helpful. Views from the ample accommodation were generally good although at this time of year (early May) some rooms lacked the light which, no doubt, would be no problem later in the year. Good use was made of the bar area for pre-dinner drinks and nibbles. The additional activities put on for our group including pasta making, wine tasting and music and dance evening were thoroughly enjoyed.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review! Tempio Pausania is indeed an excellent base for visiting Northern Sardinia, which is absolutely stunning both on the seaside and in the interior. We’re very happy that you enjoyed the activities we put on for your group… Pasta making is a lot of fun, and wine tasting is of course a necessary part of any trip to Italy! Until you can visit us again, we hope you will cherish the memories of the time you spent here.

The Pausania Inn is in a great location, about 5 mins from the centre of Tempio Pausania. We stayed for 1 night. The room was really large and the bed was comfortable.
The bathroom had a shower, sink and toilet but it was quite old fashioned in style. It was clean though.
One downside was the breakfast - coffee was in flasks and there was no fresh fruit. There were some nice cakes though. Lovely view from breakfast room.
Another downside was lack of soundproofing. Not sure if it was just our bedroom or throughout the hotel but we could hear everything in the adjacent room, people walking along the corridor and the evening's entertainment in the dining room! Fortunately it all went quiet around midnight so we weren't too badly affected.

Dear Guest,

We would like to thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, and for pointing out our strong points (great location with lovely views, large rooms with comfortable beds, cleanness, etc.), as well as our weak ones. Regrettably, when we built the hotel 15 years ago, providing rooms with state-of-the-art soundproofing was never brought up as a priority by the professionals who advised us on what to do and how to do it. We realize now that this is an area in need of investment on our part if we wish to better our service, and soundproofing rooms is indeed on our to-do list. However, we think it is worth mentioning that—thanks to our countryside location, to the layout of the hotel, and to the kind of guests we usually attract—getting a good night’s rest is rarely a problem here at Pausania Inn. With quiet surroundings and comfortable beds, ‘sleep quality’ has consistently been high, as attested by many reviews over the years.
Again… Thank you for choosing Pausania Inn for your recent trip, and for telling TripAdvisor travelers and us about your experience. We hope to greet you again soon!

We have visited this hotel more than 5 times in the last few years. It is a great family run hotel in quiet loaction just outside Tempio. The staff are all very friendly and the owner and his wife and daughter are very involved in running the hotel. Rooms are very clean and pleasant, decorated in Sardinia style. Evening meals offer a good choice of food and it is well worth taking half board. We will be returning again next year. Excellent base for exploring Northern Sardinia, but a hire car is essential.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a terrace.

Dearest Guest,

How great that our inn is a place you enjoy returning to time after time! It is truly a pleasure for us to welcome you back every time you make it to Sardinia. We hope to always provide you with the service you deserve.
Thank you for pointing out the good work and friendliness of our staff. This really is a joint effort and it is everyone’s dedication that ensures we do well.
Also, thank you for advising fellow travelers to take advantage of our half board offering—our evening meal is indeed good value! Those who prefer not to commit to half board should know that they can nonetheless opt to dine with us anytime they are inclined to, and should always feel free to ask the reception staff for guidance and for our evening menu.
Our dear friend from Scotland, we look forward to greeting you again sometime soon. Until then, be well and… Have a great New Year.

Sometimes when you go on Holiday you are lucky to find a Hotel that ticks all the boxes - enough for us to return for a fourth stay there.
The Hotel is ideally situated for exploring the Northern area of Sardinia - set in tranquil surroundings with beautiful views of the mountains, on the outskirts of Tempio.

Rooms are a nice size, clean and very comfortable with many having outside verandahs for relaxation. The bathrooms are a lovely size with all you could wish for. There is a nice size swimming pool with sun loungers and we have enjoyed finishing many a days exploring by (or in) the pool.

Breakfasts are Continental with a wide variety to start the day.
The Hotel can also supply picnic lunches.
We also ate Dinner every night at the Hotel as it is not only convenient but offers good value plus the Vino Della Casa to finish off the day.

This visit we were treated to an evening of local traditional dancing and the costumes were beautiful. The large and airy lobby had a collection of traditional Sardinian masks which play a large part in the Festivals of Sardinia.

The service from the staff is impeccable - from the Cleaners to the Waiting Staff nothing is too much trouble and always with a smile.

The owners have put a lot of thought in to the running and decor of the Hotel and if you are looking for a place to explore the little villages in the mountains with stunning views at every turn or the beautiful coastline this is the place we would recommend. It is the perfect base to explore the North of the Island as nothing is too far - but you DO need a car to make the most of the surrounding area and stunning coastline.

We will return again at some time in the future to sample the delights of Sardinia.

Room Tip: We have never failed to have a good room at this Hotel in four visits and would suggest the Annexe a...

Dearest Guest,

What a wonderful review! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this, and for sharing your thoughts on our inn with your fellow travelers here on TripAdvisor.

We are especially proud that our staff proved eager to help and supplied their services with a smile… Also, thank you for pointing out that our fixed-price evening menus are good value, and that our inn is ideally located to explore Northern Sardinia (though, admittedly, a car or motorcycle is necessary to do so).

It truly honors us that you have chosen Pausania Inn as your home away from home—not just once, or twice, but four times!—and of course we look forward to greeting you again sometime in the future.

All the best,
