Spent four nights at L'Ultimo ; used as a base for attending a wedding locally. Lovely location, grounds,building and very welcoming friendly Staff. Excellent food. Extensive international TV coverage was available.Good parking facilities, conveniently close but not adjacent to the hotel. For loading/unloading one's baggage "temporary" vehicle parking by the hotel entrance is permitted.
Arrival. By car the entrance from main road is very set back.It is therefore easily missed as no pre-warning roadside signage is in evidence .Thirty minutes later and a 'phonecall finally alleviated the situation. Raised this point with Reception and evidently the local authority does not permit directions signage of any sort roadside - this is a short sighted and an unhelpful approach for guests of all categories and places the hotel in, by necessity, apologetic mode. Equally the hotel is not accessible on Satnav ; given the above and in our technologically advanced age it is even more important and expected that steps are taken to assure it is !
Swimming Pool - great to have the facility but on my first encounter the bottom was covered in "extinguished" creepy crawlies. I suggest a cover is purchased and pulled over it overnight and an early cleaning operation takes place early am daily.
Wifi - Available ONLY in the restaurant area. Again one should, in this day and age be able, very easily, to have Internet access in each and every room. I have recently travelled extensively in SE Asia - the foregoing is now a "given" in all hotels and guesthouses and also free.Travellers in 2012 expect it; not unreasonably.
My stay at L'Ultimo was an agreable one and my cosmopolitan fellow guests helped to make it so ; the hotel clearly attracts a number of happy returnees. I hope the constructive observations made above will bear fruit and povide the "cherry on the cake" for future guests ll
