This hotel is effectively a self-sufficient annex to the nearby, larger, Savoia Hotel Regency. I stayed here for 4 days during a corporate event in the Bologna area.
The location is quite a way out of town, so a visit to the fascinating Bologna city centre will require a taxi or bus ride. The Country House is just opposite the road from the Regency and feels quite intimate and secluded, set in its own grounds with mature shrubs and trees and comprising a number of low-rise buildings in the local style that house the bedrooms, reception and breakfast room.
Check-in was efficient and in good English. My room was quite small but had all you need for a comfortable stay. The bathroom contained a shower cubicle that was a touch too small though, requiring some deft manoeuvres to accomplish an all-over clean.
A bit more worrying was that door to the room which appeared to have, at some point in the past, been kicked in (or this had been attempted) as the strike plate for the lock catch was bent inwards and screws to various locks and plates were slackened. This meant that it required careful alignment by applying pressure to the (closed) door to allow the locking latch to be turned. Once locked, it was secure, but my colleague in the room opposite had the same situation and they could not lock their door.
Breakfast was served in the on-site breakfast room and was perfectly adequate with the usual continental buffet affair (and an on-demand fresh orange squeezer). The setting was tranquil and calm, making breakfast a nice way yo start the day.
The facilities of the Savoia Regency (such as swimming pool, bar, terrace etc) were available for use and the attached restaurant was excellent.
Overall I liked the setting and charm of the place.
