There is little doubt that this hotel offers comfort, tranquillity, excellent relaxation areas both inside and out and charming service. When I expressed anxiety concerning the few number of parking places in front of the building, I was reassured by the positive responses of the staff:If you turn up and can find no space at all you are given a permit for local parking nearby. In addition, double parking appears to be allowed in the evening but at no time were we blocked in.( Did the car owners hand in their keys to staff? It was all a bit of a mystery.)I felt that if a problem arose concerning this ( or any other aspect of your stay) the staff would deal with it sympathetically and effectively. The only negative comment I would make concerns the restaurant set menu which did not do justice to this excellent hotel. There was little choice: pasta, with a sauce that tasted suspiciously as if it had come out of a packet, very fatty lamb chops with little real meat on them served with chips and a pudding. Had we not been so tired from our long journey we probably would have either paid more to choose our own meal or visited the nearby eating places. However, this did not detract from a very enjoyable three night stay, during which, inter alia, we walked to the nearby ancient bridge from which countless lovers have flung themselves into the gorge below, and rode on the spanking new system of about ten escalators which connect the old town with the new. In general, If you travel in May, look out for the Mille Milia race which brings what must be hundreds of lovely old cars chasing through the city and right past the hotel on a three day event. We were lucky enough to be among the crowds cheering on the leather helmeted drivers, many of whom paused at a local bar to quaff a glass of Prosecco provided by supporters and wave nonchalantly to the crowd before roaring off in clouds of noxious exhaust fumes that brought back memories of earlier motoring days for the writer.
