We just checked out after a 6 day stay for a wonderful wedding!
I work in travel and travel frequently and have a penchant for high end, boutique hotels. This hotel will be lovely if they can inject some soul and passion into it. The gardens are very bland and featureless, and the poor little fountain just squirts 2 jets of water in the air!
The staff at this hotel are wonderful and we loved Elisabetta in the restaurant. We felt that the standard of food was below par and on the last morning, we were served the most awful bacon we've ever eaten! They really need to improve the standards of their catering if they want to capture the true high end market. The menu choice at dinner was disappointing and the portions far too small. We can, however, fully recommend the chocolate soufflé,as long as it's not overlooked!
Overall it's a very pretty hotel with HUGE potential....it just needs a little imagination and I would suggest that they start with landscaping and food quality! We would come back as I would love to see it when full potential is achieved!
