    Good

    Reception staff very helpful especially Guiseppe who was very knowledgable and very helpful.

    Pool was closed which was unacceptable. I booked this hotel for this reason it's summer time and hot that was a huge disappointment. Not happy about being refused a coffee at 11pm by arrogant bar attendant. WiFi should be free as eventhe paid service doesn't work very well.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is really great: nice staff, very clean, very comfortable and with a wonderfull breakfast.

    It is incredible that there are still some hotels that charge the use of the wi-fi within theirs dependences: that is totally unacceptable.

    Very good

    Great location, less than 5 minutes walk to main train station and shopping streets. Quiet surrounds with lovely front area with gazebos and terraced area to enjoy a glass of proscecco.

    On arrival we were waiting at least 20mins to check in. There appeared to be some mix up with a booking for the people before us and although there were other staff around some which seemed to be managers, no one offered to look after us.

    Clean and elegant facilities. Good breakfast with varied options. Wide rooms, comfortable beds, big bathroom, everything in good shape.

    The charge for internet and parking, it should be free.

    Travelling with a baby (9m) we enjoyed the friendly service and support provided (e.g. getting hot water for baby-meals, friendly faces and helpful hands in the breakfast room); comfortable parking and short distances

    The Spa was relaxing and friendly, the same applies to the restaurant. The staff were also helpful.

    Not the fault of the hotel but a wedding party had children running around the bar area.

    Very good

    Very comfortable good room and all you would expect of a large luxury hotel.

    Quite expensive, I even complain about the wine prices in the restaurant (which I never normally do) and was rewarded with a very acceptable but much cheaper wine. The hotel is large and imposing and rather lacking in atmosphere.
