This was a Saga holiday, the hotel Franceschi only caters for Saga guests. The hotel staff are lovely and the food is very good. The hotel rooms are comfortable, all with en-suite showers with the bidet situated in the shower cubicle itself due to lack of space, but there is sufficient room to take a shower. Décor is a little... More

We have just returned (4 May 2016) after a one week stay. Read all the Excellent reviews and you will get a true picture they are all spot on! The person who wrote a poor review asks "whats going on?" The answer is YOU WERE IN THE WRONG PLACE.
