We booked this hotel the night before arrival for two nights over a busy weekend. Due to the lateness of the booking we were allocated the last room available (room 23 I think it was), which is probably the worst double room in the hotel due to it being a rather small room and the headroom is compromised by the sloping roof, which I frequently banged my head on. In my opinion this room should only have been a single, or sold much cheaper than the others, most of which are much larger.
So why have I given the hotel an overall Very Good rating? Well, we were originally only booked in for two nights, but before checking out on Monday morning I said I would book another two nights if they had a better room. As it was Monday, with a lot of people checking out, many rooms became available and we were shown several rooms of which we had a free choice. We chose a room to our liking and stayed a further two nights. Note though that the rooms are of differing shapes and sizes and all priced the same (unless it's a Junior Suite), so if busy it is pot luck with what you get.
Overall the rooms are very clean and comfortable, some have showers only, some with separate baths and showers, and others with a shower over the bath.
If you like a lie in be sure to take ear plugs. The hotel is located next to the church clock tower, which starts it's chimes early in the morning (I think it was 7 o'clock but may have been earlier on Sunday) and chimes every fifteen minutes thereafter.
Breakfast were very good, plentiful with lots of choice.
For the first two nights we went out to eat but on the last two we chose the half board option. You can book this in the morning but you do have to choose what you want off the menu at that time. This option is very good value for money, the choice and the food were both very good.
Staff at the hotel were very helpful and pleasant.
The hotel has free parking at a nearby underground car park.
This is a lovely part of Italy that I'll be sure to visit again, if I do I will more than likely stay at this hotel again.
