We managed to get a room in this hotel at the last minute as we were desperate at about 8pm. We were relieved to find a room with a pretty good location at quite a good price. The room was clean, though the bed wasn't amazingly comfortable. The staff varied from being unfriendly (the guy when we checked in barely spoke to us and offered no help with bags) to incompetent (a lady had no idea how wifi worked). The breakfast experience was extraordinary, and not in a good way. As we walked into the room the waiter (the same guy who had checked us in the previous evening) handed us a croissant each. Clearly these were not on the buffet table because there was a strict one croissant per person policy. This wouldn't have been a problem if they had been restocking the buffet, which was virtually empty a hour before breakfast finished. After several people had requested more water and more yoghurt the waiter reluctantly restocked these products. Otherwise the only things available were cereal (no milk), french toast and apricot jam. There was some evidence that milk, salami, bread and cheese had been available but despite frequent promising visits to the kitchen the waiter didn't feel that these things needed replacing. We were in the room at about 0845-0915 (breakfast reportedly served till 1000) so felt a little short changed as we definitely hadn't left this till the last minute!
We only stayed one night before transferring to a delightful agriturismo.
