If you want a peaceful location with lovely views and are not expecting a fully serviced hotel, this is perfect. Our superior room with a balcony overlooking the lake was quite small and basic but had everything we needed. The hotel side is closed when the restaurant is shut so you need to keep a key with you. The nearest shops, cafes etc are a good 10 minute walk, or I should say climb as there are about 200 steps. It’s a charming walk through pretty cobbled streets with cascades of flowering plants, but not for the infirm.
It’s true that some of the older staff are unfriendly but possibly their lack of English explains it. Marta and the other younger ones were always very helpful. The food was variable. The homemade pasta with truffles was one of the best I’ve had. Beef was good, fish (surprisingly) rather dry. Breakfasts were a disappointment - an uninspired selection of cereals of the rice crispie/cornflakes variety, rolls, a few pastries which ran out each day, very little fruit, yoghurts, dry cake and a little ham and cheese. The coffee in a jug the worst I’ve tasted in years but on day 2 we discovered you could go to the kitchen and ask for espresso or cappuccino. Do so!More
