This is a truly beautiful hotel reminiscent of the Grand Tour era. The decor is opulent, the gardens extensive with great sports facilities (including a cutting edge gym).
when we arrived there was no-one immediately around to take the cases from the car -although I could see staff standing around. And no-one offered to take our cases to the car at the end of our stay.
There was no-one on duty at breakfast on our first day to direct us to a table, and to be forced to ask twice for coffee is unforgivable. To have to ask a 3rd time having waited for 20 minutes is unacceptable in any standard of hotel.
Our room was magnificent, as we were upgraded to a suite, but the bathroom was tiny.
Overall we had a wonderful stay but these issues were dissappointing in a hotel of this qulaity
