The hotel is charming, personal, clean, beautiful, and elegant. Its not a stately hotel with a grand entrance, but rather a cozy hotel, with lots of sitting corners, nooks, and parlors to find quiet solitude. The hotel throughout is decorated in a rich, antique style, which provides a characteristic ambiance reminscent of fine holiday vacations from a bygone era.
Our room was clean, adequately furnished, comfortable, and personal. It did not feel like a standard hotel room to turn quantities of guests night after night. We did not have a significant view from our room, but as we didn't plan to spend much time in the room, this was not a necessity for us. The beds were very comfortable, and the room's temperature was perfect at this time of year. I can imagine in the full heat of summer though, our room might have been more on the uncomfortable side, with only the small, corner AC unit to cool the entire room. The bathroom was big enough, but the fan was not really powerful enough to clear out the steam until long after a shower. The room was cleaned during our stay, with plenty of new towels replenished. We only had breakfast at the hotel, and in agreement with other reviewers, I would have preferred the option for a later breakfast, rather than the 9:30 closing time. The breakfast selection was sufficient, but it was not an endless buffet of choices. I'm a person who watches the nutrition of my diet very closely, and I found plenty of goodness within the items offered. There was enough to eat for me, though for another person who is used to a massive buffet of choice from a hotel, they may not be satisfied. Additionally, free wi-fi was available in the dining area, but not in our room. The pool area of the hotel was also quite nice, with a nice feel of privacy. The gardens were abundant with flowers and colors, and maintained in a natural, not overly manicured way.
The location of the hotel is excellent, with easy access to the whole area. Shopping, swimming, boating, walking, hiking, and the evening passagiata are easily available within a short walk from the hotel's entry.
We will definitely return to this hotel!
