My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Villa Conestabile for one night in August 2005 with his daughter and niece.
We had returned to stay at the Conestabile after enjoying two superb meals there in August 2004.
However, at check in, I discovered to my horror that the restaurant was closed on Saturdays and Sundays! I hadn't checked when I booked... I just assumed the restaurant would be open!
Thankfully, the hotel was able to recommed a restaurant just a couple of hundred yards up to road, which was of a high standard.
The hotel itself is wonderful - a beautifully restored / maintained villa with original frescoes, marble floors, antique furniture, magnificent modern bathrooms and stunning pieces of Venetian glass - it is worth splashing out on.
Also definitely worth splashing out on is insect repellent - and lots of it!! The beautifully landscaped gardens spreading out from the terrace are a magnet for mosquitoes - make sure you get plenty of repellent on before venturing outdoors.
The rooms are beautiful, the hotel is the stuff of dreams, and the staff are marvellous - the guy who served us our food last year recognised us this year.
Thoroughly recommended for those wanting a taste of old-style Italian glamour.
