A first class hotel situated overlooking the beautiful Valle d'ltria Pugla, we only stayed four nights during a tour of Italy. The food, rooms and staff were all without fault wished we had stayed much longer.

Food excellent, quality and quantity. Staff very attentive. Rooms very clean. Large en-suite but very small stand-alone shower. Sound insulation between bedroom and next-door's bathroom could be better. Could hear shower running and toilet being flushed. Otherwise an excellent stay.

The drive to the hotel was difficult as not enough signs indicate where it is but once there, we found a very well organized and well run hotel with excellant staff. Very friendly, speak a number of languages. The rooms are more than comfortable, well kept and with a fantastic panorama of the vally as the view.

Twin bedded room 235 is handy for the lift & stairs. It was well appointed with balcony with two chairs & a table plus facility to use two suitcases without unpacking everything. The air-con was also almost silent. The room had larger than normal safe & a mini bar. Only downside was the TV. Not even BBC 24. The shower... More

We ended up here because of problems with a booking at a Masseria in the area (- they had advertised a restaurant, but it was not open). The hotel appears to be used largely by bus tour operators who drop off their customers here for a couple of nights. If you draw the inference that guests are little more than... More

Ate as family of four twice during a week's holiday. Mix of local food and pizza. Good value. Mixed Anti Pasto excellent. Ice cream lovely. Well frequented by locals too - always a good sign. Overall good value for money.
