We stayed here for one night on our way to see friends in Southern Italy - we will definitely return for a longer stay in the future. Greeted with a choice of water or prosecco, we were given the option of freshening up in our room or touring the facilities. After a few hours in the car, we decided to stretch our legs with a little walk. I enjoyed the library -- and returned later to relax and enjoy looking through some of the books on design.
Our room was as advertised - the sheets were perfectly pressed, the shower was lovely and the tub provided a nice soak. We had dinner in the restaurant and found the food to be up to the standard one would expect of this level of hotel. The next morning's breakfast was fresh and tasty -- we sat outside. The spa was very nice and we both enjoyed our massages.
We used the gym in the morning and found the equipment excellent! Well maintained and spotless!
I recently read that good service is giving what is expected for the money -- outstanding service is giving a customer what they didn't even know they wanted. It is such a small thing -- but we were delighted when our car was retrieved for our departure. There were two full water bottles and a small bag of boiled sweets! Extremely thoughtful! It's these little touches that bring a smile! Wonderful stay!
