Reviewed 8 May 2012 via mobile

Now back home in a rainy cold climate counting the days to next years return trip.
The tone was set at the reservation stage by the very efficient Nadia who communicated the reservation process perfectly. Then followed a prompt collection service at the airport taken Directly to the hotel. Check In was fast and friendly indeed All staff inc restaurant bar housekeeping and the bike department are professional and friendly - a winning combination. The owner Stefano is the perfect host making every to ensure his guests have a memorable and enjoyable holiday - this is a hotelier at the top of his game. The cycling is especially well organised. Rental bikes in great condition. The comraderie among the cyclists was unique with a wide range of nationalities and languages all getting along making new friendships ....
We stayed on a fully inclusive package and I would recommend this option for very good value for money.
What a perfect holiday, cycling in the day, with time to recover and sun bath in the afternoon topped with delicious Italian food and wine each evening.

First time in this hotel and would have to say it was excellent .Met at Bologna airport by hotel minibus and brought to the hotel which is a good service as a taxi would be an added expense for an hours drive.Front of house staff very welcoming and no hassle or fuss in getting checked in.I was staying on an all inclusive style package which i would recommend as it is very good value, the restaurent is excellent with a great buffet selection to suit all tastes .As for the bike side of things it was very good hire bikes are first class,guides are friendly and the routes are excellent with several different levels of groups going out each day there is plenty of options available from novice to experienced .Also the hotel is a 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach a nice way to relax after a tough cycle and the main shopping area also close by if your that way inclined.

Room Tip: Would book into main hotel as i was in the Dory suite which is 50mtrs from the hotel.

Once again we had a very enjoyable stay in the hotel. This I think was our fourth year. The staff are wonderful and it's comforting to see familiar faces once again. The cycling guides as ever are kind and patient for those of us who sometimes can't quite keep up! We stayed again in D place which was up to the usual high standard and the food just what a hungry cyclist needs. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Would recommend D Place if travelling with a friend

My first trip to Hotel Dory and we had a fantastic time. This hotel has great attention to detail and really made you feel at home. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, the food really excellent, fresh and lots of it. Our room was very comfortable, we booked a junior suite which was a slight exageration as It was just a room. However, very modern and comfortable. The bike tours took you through some amazing countryside with variation for ability and scenery. Some of our group especially enjoyed the wine tasting. The only negative is a lack of care/motivation to ensure the hire bikes fit properly. You had to be quite persistant to get any adjustments made. I would have no problem recommending this hotel for a superb biking holiday, it was excellent!!!

My first cycling holiday and all of the reviews and the price seemed to good to be true. However, Dory lived up to the other reviews. Hotel staff and bike staff were great, food plentiful, everything ran very smoothly. Facilities were good. I would visit again.

This was our first visit to Hotel Dory, we had visited the region before for a cycling holiday. Everything was exceptional, perfect location, wonderful room, every member of staff was so helpful. The food was excellent and plentiful. Most importantly, if you want to be a fitter and stronger cyclist at the end of your holiday and have fun this is the place to visit. The hotel organised a couple of events centered around cycling, lunch in the country and a review of the week with photos, these were great and very amusing.

This was my first bike holiday. I didn't expect this kind of service. Super staff, great welcome, nice room, great food, super bike service, great bike guides, .... everything was right for this first bike holiday, and it won't be the last time I will use these facilities. See you next year.

I think that it was great for your first time on a bike holiday. We hope too to see you next year among our guests. Our bike staff will be waiting for you. And don't forget that we change each year our bike programme so... never ride the same routes. Best regards from Riccione.
