The Cava D’ Oro hotel strives to be quaint, convenient and reasonably priced. It succeeds, but does not exceed. We asked for a first floor room in the main hotel because previous guests did not like the annex or the steep steps in the main building. Our punishment was lots of traffic and noise on the first floor, front side. The owner, Brigid, met our every request, but never with a smile and never without having made us feel that she was going out of her way to do so. (We asked for extra pillows. She said she would have to check the other rooms to see if she had any. My God, this is a hotel! Did they have only one pillow per guest? We got our pillows within the hour.) On the positive side, the rooms were clean, the breakfast ample, parking convenient and the price reasonable for what we got. On the negative side, there was no hot water the first night. The owners had their family in for the Easter holiday and they were quite noisy. The telephone in our room did not work at all. The TV was not picking up all the available stations. (Brigid said the guests always messed up the settings and she did not know how to correct it. We figured it out in about an hour.) My wife ordered a glass of wine on our first night. The price was only 1.50 Euro for a small glass, but the wine had been open so long that it was not drinkable. Later we saw another 1.5-liter bottle of the same wine in a grocery for three Euros. The breakfast buffet had a reasonable selection for the size of the hotel, but many of the offerings were quite ordinary. As with almost everything else, the breakfast was OK, but nothing knocked you off your feet. I would recommend this hotel based on its price and location. The owners have tried to make it more than it is, but their cost cutting is obvious. It has many nice stylistic touches, but it is not consistent. For example, the old stone walls have a lacquered appearance and they clash with the modern tile floors, homemade window screens and home-made carpentry, the flowers are plastic and wall hangings kitschy.
