“Didn't quite live up to it's potential”
Reviewed 23 March 2010

I'm a bit torn about my rating. On the one hand, the rooms were quite nice, the employee was friendly and helpful, and it was a good price. On the other hand, we had trouble finding the employee when we needed him, and found the location to be a bit mediocre.

Part of the problem, I suspect, is that it wasn't really the right time of year for Lake Trasimeno. It's a place which clearly sees a lot of tourists some times of the year, although tourists were pretty scarce when we were there (we were the only people staying in the B&B for example). I suspect we missed out on a lot of the best of charm of the lake and that some of the service-related issues were directly related to the time of year we stayed.

We showed up fairly late, and weren't able to find anyone to let us in to our room; we were given suggestions about where to find employees if no one was in, but no one was there either. They did give us a phone number, but without a European cell phone calling was a fair bit of trouble (although it did eventually work). I'm fairly sympathetic to the employee -- it's pretty hard to wait around for just 1 set of guests -- but on the other hand, we warned the owners at the time of the booking that we would be showing up late and didn't have a cell phone. When we found him, he was quite apologetic and upgraded our room. He also had a number of helpful recommendations for dinner and was clearly a very nice guy.

The room itself (as previously mentioned, an upgrade over what we actually paid for) was quite nice -- large and with a nice bathroom. There was a lake-view, although it was over a parking lot and street. The bed was comfortable, and the room was kitschy but nice. There was even a fireplace. It was quiet, and we both slept very well -- maybe the best night of sleep I had on a 2-week trip.

Because we were the only guests, they didn't serve breakfast (this was fully disclosed at the time we made our booking).

On the whole, it's a very pleasant place, and I suspect the service is quite good when there are more guests around. The location is mediocre, but certainly not a minus. I wish I could give a higher overall rating.
