The grounds at this hotel are gorgeous, worth visiting just for that reason. Our windows opened onto the grounds and it was breathtaking. We chose this hotel as we understood we could reach Venice by bus quite easily but let me assure you it was not easy! Be informed of the bus schedule and allow about an hour to get there, each way of course. The hotel had no food available after we got back from visiting Venice so we had to forage for ourselves. There is nothing in the immediate vicinty except a pizza shop and a very high class looking hotel restaurant next door. Be aware there are no restaurants open on Tuesday nights, so eat accordingly! The staff at the hotel were very professional and helpful. They picked us up at the airport and took us to the train station when we were leaving. The room we had was strangely located off of the dining room, so you had to walk through there each time you went in or out. Fortunately the hotel is small and there were never very many people in there, very expensive if you choose to have dinner there. We enjoyed our stay very much but would consider booking something closer to Venice next time so we could save some travel time.
