Overall this hotel is very good. The location is beautiful, set within the national park, and the seating areas, breakfast room and our bedroom, all made excellent use of the stunning location. The staff were lovely. Friendly and very informative.
Then there was the food! The food was excellent. It is clearly a 'foodie' hotel and they were very passionate about their menus and their flavour combinations. We actually stayed on a night when the main restaurant was closed, and therefore had to eat in the pizza restaurant, but even still each dish came with a detailed explanation of ingredients or flavour. Everything we sampled was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Sadly there were a couple of downsides. One being the suite in which we stayed smelt really old and stale. It was quite overwhelming and made being in the room quite uncomfortable.
Secondly, the breakfast, although we booked a room with 'breakfast included', breakfast was actually very limited unless you were willing to pay extra. We have stayed in many hotels in Italy and have never seen this on a breakfast menu before. Due to glass windows, you can see directly into the kitchen from the breakfast room, and we watched the kitchen staff merely standing around waiting for something to do. It didn't make sense that they would rather pay their staff to stand around, when they could be cooking for their guests.More
