Augustus hotel had a very pretty entrance, we were very impressed on first impression, we are a party of 6 people, 3 couples, 2 of which were celebrating our anniversaries, (our own being our 25th silver) we booked into the hotel for a 4 night stay at the end of july, and informed the hotel of the celebrations well before we arrived, they kindly sent me an e.mail to say that as a present to us they would let us use the thermal pools free of charge, however when we arrived we got the impression that everyone was using them anyway. I must say that they were very lovely thermal pools, very relaxing even for a non swimmer like myself.
Our rooms were basic but spotlessly cleaned to a very high standard, my disappointment was that we had twin beds, they did offer to push the beds together, but I thought that for couples celebrating anniversaries, they would have made a little more effort to give us double beds at least. The furnishings were simple, the aircon was brilliant, much needed as it was very hot, but we all had no view from the balcony, basically it was the back, overlooking the back of the resturants where they store old gas bottles un-used furniture ect. we were on a low floor (2) and I think the higher rooms would have had better views of the spectacular countryside that surrounded us. the views from the pool area were amazing on floor 6.
we did have breakfast every morning, and the choice was large, many items to choose from, hot or cold, fresh fruit, cereal, and fresh hot tea and coffee brought to you table as you needed it, the waiting staff were very attentive and efficient.
The train station was indeed very close to the hotel and we used this to get into venice twice, it took only approx. 20mins, and we also used the little il puffetto train which took you around the local area of Terme euganee abano monttegrotto. there were many shops and resturants to stop and refresh yourself.
As much as we really like the hotel facilities, people, grounds, cleanliness and food, we were just a little disappointed, that they didn't make a little more effort to help us celebrate our anniversaries, not a room upgrade, welcome drink, fruit or wine in the room or even a happy anniversary from them.
All said and done, we really did enjoy our stay in this hotel and resort, and would definatley come back.
