Situated just off a main road this hotel is about 3 Km from the centre of town. Nice modern and boutique style hotel has 16 rooms and 3 villas. Reception staff speak good English and are warm, friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious, well fitted and comfortable. Unfortunately there were no English channels available in the TV. Breakfast is simple but adequate. Certainly a good place to park yourself on a short stay.

The place is just on the outskirts of Matera, easy to access, plenty of car park and easy access if we kids. We stayed in an apartment: nice kitchen area (small fridge, stove and plenty of plates and cultelery :) with a sofa bed where our 2 daughters slept. Nice bathroom and big enough bedroom. The wardrobe is in the kitchen/living room space. The breakfast is nice but european (nice fresh pizza!). The surroundings of the hotel are not that nice but the little garden at the back is very pretty. The place is on the road leading to the park and the Belvedere( few kms only).
The best thing about this place, beside being very clean and new, is the people: extremely nice and helpfull!

Very clean, light, modern hotel. Large terrace for lounging on or having breakfast outside. Good sized bedroom with en suite shower, loo, bidet and basin. Excellent shower. Lovely white fluffy towels. Although situated on a busy road, the hotel is extremely quiet. We had a good night's sleep in comfortable beds. We also had a small kitchenette with fridge. Double doors opened out onto a communal balcony with far reaching views across the valley.
Good breakfast. No other food is served here.
Only downside is the difficulty we had in actually finding the hotel. The satnav said the road didn't exist and we ended up on an industrial estate ! Finally found it quite by accident. The management are looking into this as I fear custom may be lost as a result. It is several miles from the old town so getting there can be difficult until you have done it a few times in a car. If at all unsure of driving, I would suggest a taxi.
Hopefully, the above won't put people off as it deserves to be a success. The staff couldn't have done more for us, especially Lorenzo and Sylvia.

Room tip: We had room 208 at the back of the hotel and it was quiet.

Has everything you want for a 1/2 night stay visiting Matera. Large comfortable rooms and reception staff who speak English. When visiting Matera 3 miles away day or night the parking is horrendous, so get clear instructions to go to a pay car park, or better still get the hotel to arrange taxi, let them fix the price, we paid too much. The 'Resort and Beauty' facility is only a dream, no building start in the plans yet, which is a shame, would be great to relax in after walking round the amazing sights in Matera.

We stayed here for 1 night during a drive round Southern Italy in June 2016.

When one looks back on a hotel stay after a couple of years the trivial points fade away - one no longer remember whether there was nice quality shampoo or that the wifi was slow or whatever. The standout feature of this hotel which I doubt will ever fade from the memory was the unbelieveably happy helpful friendly professional receptionist. If I were to be made "God of all Hotels" tomorrow this young lady would be made the model for all other receptionists to conform to. (Am i overdoing this ? Not really - she really was that good ! As hotels God I would bring a plague of vermin on hotels charging for wifi - no vermin here - great free wifi!). So - reception friendly not only when it came to the hotel but all manner of advice on parking in the City etc etc......We needed some airline boarding passes printing out - emailed them to her - no bother at all. A real Angel.

The Hotel is a fair distance from the historic old part of the city but as we had a car this wasnt a problem as the driving in Matera (For Italy) was easygoing and there was lots of cheap parking available.

The room was kind of modern minimalist clean white type modern design - which worked very well. I think we had the room normally reserved for disabled guests - a kind of easy off loo and a fold away seat in the shower. (Were only in our early 50s as well !). To be fair you do not have to be frail or elderly to enjot a seat in a shower ! Free wifi worked brilliantly in the room.

The only drawback was the rooms shape was (including the toilet) a U shape - well a very long U. It was this shape as the lift "shaft" was taking up the space in the middle of the U. Not a space problem - still loads of space - but the lift was quite noisey. I would imagine had we had a different room away from the lift we would have fallen over ourselves to give a 5.. and the chances of getting that room are smal..... feel a bit bad mentioning it :-(

Breakfast was very nice - light airey eating area with great views of the garden - if it had been a bit warmer than eating outside would have been superb.... Great coffee and the usual cold continental breakfast buffet done to a good standard. Again the staff were great - smiley and friendly.

In 5 years we will have totally forgotten the noisey lift and the cool modern room design but the reception lady will remain in the memory banks for her brilliance at her job.

Would certainly stay here again - thank you Hotel Cave.
