Where do we start? Honestly, we have just returned yesterday fro out 4-night stay and myself, my wife and our inquisitive, observant and curious daughter cannot stop raving about how luxurious and inviting and wondrous the Hotel and its amazing kind staff were!
BOOKING: Where to start? Well how about the moment we booked? I just thought I would just use their email - never expecting in my wildest dreams, a reply..let alone a personalised, fast and lovely one from Michele, who's family run the Hotel! He was polite, informative and made us feel immediately at ease with his courteous reply.
As we got closer to our travel date, i emailed a further few times - each time met with an equally prompt and resourceful kind reply from Michele. Such an excellent touch from him and the Hotel.
It meant that we knew we were going to be met by a pre-arranged taxi to bring us to the Hotel, knew where we could change currency and equally knew what the weather would be roughly like the whole trip and what were the local eateries in Oriago, Mestre, where the Hotel was so beautifully situated.
ARRIVAL: Then from the moment we arrived - we were met with Julia - a stunning and lovely member of staff. She couldn't have done more to make us feel weclome: so polite, so helpful and informative. Her English was also very impressive (same for all the staff!!).
ROOM: In a word, Breath-taking: the lounge area was clean, fully-equipped and the double bed had already been fully made. it was spacious, exqisitely-decorated and yet simple and pleasing to the eye. Indeed, we literally gasped, "Wow" the moment the door was opened. They really have spared no expense to make this a sleek, deadly-boutique of a Hotel!
ROOM SERVICE: superb. What more can i say? From a piece of cake to a pot of boiling water to an expresso - all were promptly brought up, with a beautiful smile..and were just what the Doctor ordered.
BREAKFAST: superb, tasty, fresh, plentful and discerning. We could not fault them from their beautiful warmed chocolate croissants to the fresh red ace juice, omelettes to the hot toast and yummy butter..and their range of coffees and teas...really tasty and the frsh moist pastries...yumm yumm!!! The staff couldn't do enough and they were always attentive whilst never ever being over-bearing. Thank you for making our start to the day so tasty and enjoyable.
STAFF: Michele was humble, kind, knowledgeable & always their to offer help and advice and can truly be proud of his family's exquisite conversion of this beautiful 17th-century Villa; Julia - so kind, so nice, no helpful, thank you; Anna - what can we say, stunning in every way you can imagine and just as helpful and wonderful as everyone else there...she was also so very helpful in arranging our smooth return back home..thank you so much.. And the other staff, were equally kind and helpful.
OVERALL VERDICT: there is a direct bus service literally outside the Hotel. It takes about 20-25mins to get into Venice. The free bike hire and jogging routes are so wonderful - we made full use during our short stay. We felt refreshed and happy throughout - a testament to this boutique 11-room wonderful Hotel. Finally, would we stay again? In a flash...
