Went in July and had a great time. We stayed in an attic room which was small but comfortable, and a great value since we used a travelzoo voucher. Found the staff collectively to be really friendly and helpful, which really made the stay nice. Overall just felt like it was a really pretty spot with relaxing ambience.
other Pros: pool, centrally located, good quality breakfast (no eggs or hot dishes, but I felt that was standard most places I stayed in Italy), free use of the laundry machine, on-site lunch and wine were delicious and reasonably priced (it was usually served with some complimentary fruit which I thought was a nice touch)
Cons: you need a car, no dinner service (though there are plenty of near by places and you can order pizza), no a.c. (though we stayed in the attic room in summer and didn't feel over heated), lots of stairs (staying at the top meant a 60 step journey every time you needed to get something, and even the lower rooms involved a staircase or 2). Also, not a lot of common areas to sit beyond the patio area outside, esp at night when the lobby and breakfast rooms are closed...
