The staff were always very kind and helpfull.
The room was clean and had everything you need, alltough there wasn't much space to put your clothes.
The last 5 days, the management gave us another room, because a large group of children were comming for the weekend and they would be sleeping in the same corridor as our room was, so they told us we could have another room so we wouldn't be disturbed by the noice. We got one of the few bigger (more expensive rooms) and that was just magnificent.
Location was great, very calm but still close to the city.
Also the swimming pool area was great.

I stayed with a group of motorcycle bikers in hotel Pausania Inn for one week in may 2013 and I was very pleased with all services.

Pausania Inn is a favorable hotel (3 stars) with special services for bikers. The complete hotel staff is very friendly and helpful! Delicate regional food is served in the evening for customers like our motorcycle biker group (we booked half board). Pausania Inn is located very near to the city Tempio Pausania with its typical granitic houses which are specially illuminated in the city centre – to have an impression should take a look in advance, e.g. here: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=tempio%20pausania.

The hotel is located about 1 km from the city centre of Tempio Pausania and therefore you can have a quite calm stay with a unique look to the gorgeous Aggius mountains (take a look at the pictures of the hotel´s website). Pausania Inn is a central and very advantageous starting point for tours to all important destinations in the north half of Sardegna: Monte Limbara, Lago di Coghinas, Castelsardo and Roccia dell´ Elefante (http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=roccia%20dell%C2%B4%20elefante), Chiaramonti and its region, Alghero, Bosa, Costa Smeralda and the north coast/Gallura (Golfo di Cannigione, Palau, island La Maddalena, Porto Pollo, Capo Testa).

I really had a wonderful time at Pausania Inn and hope to come back soon !

Well, what can we say that you haven’t said already? Thank you so much for these words of praise and encouragement. Your review makes us very proud. Of course we appreciate the business of all our clients equally, but we won’t deny having a soft spot for bikers—we know how much you enjoy exploring the area on your steel horses and returning to a comfy room, in a cozy environment (with plenty of parking) after a long day out, and this, we think, makes Pausania Inn a perfect fit. Please do come back soon!

Best,

After touring round sardinia we were pleasantly surprised to find this hotel up in the mountains breakfast was more than adequate even for me a vegetarian, rooms could do with updating but are clean with excellent views all around and only a few minutes walk into the lovely town. There was a lovely little Sandy spaniel puppy with a docked tail outside the hotel which I feed and fell in love with so look out for him and feed him too

Dear Guest,

We are delighted to read that you were pleased with your stay at Pausania Inn, and that the breakfast we provided was suitable for a vegetarian. Our morning buffet is indeed rather well assorted, we believe, and should satisfy most guests. (But let us take this opportunity to tell other travelers who might be reading this that they should always feel free to tell us about their dietary restrictions, which we will of course try to accommodate whenever possible).

Also, you will be happy to know that the puppy you fed and played with has been taken in by us and will have a happy home in the plot of land adjacent to the hotel grounds. If you ever make it back to visit us, as we hope you will, we’ll be glad to host a little reunion! Meanwhile, may you cherish the memories of the time you spent here.

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,

Vargiu Family

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.
