Just Ok as needs some improvements
The Staff are lovely, but the hotel is slipping and in need of some work (Shower did not function properly, cracks in wall ) the quality of the breakfast has also slipped only one type of yogurt Pineapple but after the 6th or 7th request from guests they actually found a couple of other flavours. To begin with the waiters did not have masks on then suddenly they all put them on which was quite disconcerting. I have stayed here nearly every year for the last 10 years so its a little sad to see the decline in quality

Great hotel with nice pool area. We had a circle-ended room which was really big. Nice bathroom with Jacuzzi, lots of toiletries. Surprise complimentary Prosecco and fresh fruit delivered to our room (very welcome!). Would definitely stay here again.

Nice to be back
Back here after a year off having stayed here every year for the previous 7 years. It familiar and comfortable. Most off the staff are excellent helpful and friendly. We had some maintenance issues with the room but these were sorted and changed rooms no problems. The being the COVID year things where different at breakfast served buffet which is slow be necessary and with masks on makes it less welcoming. But still plenty of choices. I am certain all being well we will be back again so I don’t think I can give a better recommendation than that

Great place for a business stop over
Very easy to find, plenty of parking. Convenient stop over as I was traveling up Italy, and it was close to the motorway. Room was very clean and comfortable, staff were friendly and polite. I ate an evening meal and breakfast here, both of which were excellent.

Great pool area, breakfast was bleak. It looked like a big spread but then nothing was very good other than the fresh pastries.
