This was not the hotel we had originally booked and after reading some of the reviews I was not looking forward to going but it was lovely.
You can imagine this hotel being at it's peak in about the 1920's but it has still retained that 'classy' atmosphere. The Gardens are immaculately laid out and the pool area is spotlessly clean.
All room have balconys. From other guests who were situated at the from of the hotel we gathered that the view is fantastic but the downside is that the bathrooms tended t o be small. We were allocated a room to the back of the hotel so our view was across houses, but at least you got to see real life in Italy. The bathroom was as big as out bedroom and there was loads of storage space in the bedroom. There was a little noise from the kitchen but as they stop serving meals at 8 it did not go on into the night.
Breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choice and the evening meal was served with a flourish as they presented it covered in silver cloches.
Staff were all friendly and helpful and although not everyone spoke English they did make an effort.
WARNING! There is one thing you MUST be aware of. When they take a drinks order with meals or any other time they will not take the money there and then but will add it to your bill. Consequently it is quite easy to run up a sustansial bill without realising it as their drinks are expensive - 5 euros for a bottle of water and wine starting fron 14 euros a bottle. There is a mini bar in each room and again drinks from there are expensive, 3 euro for a can of coke (which can be bought in the supermarket across the road for about 1 euro). You can pay the next morning so yoy can kkep track of how much you are spending, but they don't like you doig it.
