“Excellent food quality and good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

We have just returned from this hotel where we had a most pleasant holiday.
We cannot fault the hotel which is in a good location.
The food quality was excellent. Staff were friendly and courteous.
The refurbished bedrooms were very pleasant.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor have a good view over the pool

We spent a fantastic 10 days at the Hotel Madison in the summer of 2010. The room we had was clean and welcoming with a great view over the bay. The food was fantastic and we were able to have lunch or evening meal depending on what we were doing each day. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful even providing a cake to celebrate the exam results of my niece. will definately be back to see the refurbishments in 2012.

i like very much this hotel. there's so many years now. I come bak in few days. Rooms are nice. The staff is cool. And, most of all, the food is really fantastic. And not to much expensive. I really don't understand the way of life for some people i'm reading here. May be, it was not the same hotel. Or it's for them a different way of life, without pudding and bacon. I like very much the italian way of life.

Room Tip: just try it

I have been travelling to the Madison for the last 13 years, with my husband and son, and in recent years with my daughter and grandchildren. It has everything we look for in a family holiday. We book directly with the owners, who offer great deals. They even pick guests up from the airport for no extra charge.

We used to stay in the hotel on half board. In recent years, however we have self catered in the apartments as they are more spacious. This is great as we also have the option of having meals in the Dining room when we don't want to cook or go out to a restaurant. The food in this hotel is out of this world; proper Italian cuisine. There is also a snack bar, which is handy when having days around the pool.

The position of the hotel is great. It is situated in a quieter part of town. However, the walk into the centre takes only 10 minutes and is along the lovely promenade, which has many street stalls and entertainers. A 5 minute stroll in the other direction brings you to the resort of Gabbicce Mare, which has lovely seafood restaurants.

The resort of Cattolica is ideal for exploring other parts of Italy. Venice, Rome, Florence and many other cities and towns are easy to visit in a day by train. Other great day outs include the waterpark, Acquafan, Mirabilandia and Fabialandia theme parks, Little Italy and several aquariums.

We have always found the staff at the hotel to be friendly and ready to see to our every need. We all look forward to returning again this year!

Room Tip: For plenty of space, especially for young families, ask for an apartment. You can still take meals i...

We had a lovely holiday at the hotel in an apartment with our daughter. The hotel is family friendly with nice friendly staff & we enjoyed our time by the pool. We liked the position of the hotel which is near the beach & is near shops, bars & restaurants. We chose this hotel because it's family run & was good value.

Hotel was ok, with small but confortable rooms, a small swimming pool (standard size in the area) and overall nice and helpful perosnnel.
But the great value was the kitchen with large variety of starters (a buffet of 30 each day) and very good main courses served by very cordial personnel.
Wines at fair prices served at the table.
At the end yet another great buffet of cakes and fruit in quantity.

The value for money was there.

Room Tip: Ask for renovated rooms as there seem to be 2 standards in the structure.

We started staying at the Hotel Madison in about 2001 and have been back many times since, I have taken most of my family to this hotel over the years ,infact last year there were 9 of us , its a perfect place for a relaxing holiday.
Location
The hotel is situated on a quiet street so there is no noise or traffic going past in the evenings which in my book it great because its a 5 minute walk to plenty of bars , shops and nightlife and yet when you are ready for your bed its peace and quiet.
There is entertainment in the hotel some nights but this is usually over by about 11.00 ish which is fine.
There is a brilliant ice cream shop just round the corner from the hotel......i dream about that ice cream on cold winter evenings back in the UK you must try it and its so cheap compared to the uk!
The main town centre of catollica is a short walk in one direction whilst the resort of gabbici mare is a short walk in the other direction, no more than 10 mins either way, everywhere is clean and well looked after.

Hotel
Pool is pleasant, I have been to better pools I must be honest but its fine and is nice enough to relax by and read a book.

Food
This is the part that I have to say its superb, its a buffet to start with and then waiter service for starter and main course with buffet deserts, now buffets are something I would generally probably steer clear of however the hotel madison buffets are exceptional , fantastic food at a very high standard.
Breakfast is also buffet service and there is plenty of choice to set you up for the day.

Beach
The beach is literally over the road from the hotel and if you book direct with the hotel you can opt for beach facilitys which include sunbeds and umberella, the beach is clean , well looked after and is perfect to spend some time soaking up some sun.

This hotel and resort is perfect for familys with young children and also for couples, the rooms are not high end and plush but they are very clean and very comfortable with the added bonus of a fridge.
The hotel is family owned and they do a great job
We have booked to go back this September and we cant wait, give it a try , it wont dissapoint.
