We selected this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and it certainly lived up to all the praise. We will most definately go back. We are not fans of boutique hotels but prefer hotels with character so Hotel Catullo certainly fitted the bill, a little retro, kitch and oh so Italian. Brilliant. Breakfasts were simple not much choice but we always managed to eat our fill. Lunches ,3 courses, could be eaten in the resteraunt or a simpler can be eaten on the terrace overlooking the lake. Whether inside or out the tables are laid with damask clothes and napkins. Evening meals are in the resteraunt. Good Italian food but then 50% of the guests were Italian, which says a lot about this hotel.
If you don't like cats and dogs then you will not like this hotel as Fabio, the owner lets his pet animals roam around the hotel and gardens . (Only one small criticism , they need to be more diligent in making sure the garden is kept clean from what the pets leave behind as some days we had to move because of unpleasant smells but a small trade off for seeing well fed , cared for cats and dog).
One last thing, would highly recommend the winery trip organised by the hotel as you get to see some beautiful countryside, historic villages and are accompanied to the winery by a very knowledgable regional food and wine expert-oh and the free motor cruiser trip is a blast.
