What a great experience. The location is easy to everywhere [take the water taxi to Portofino] rooms are old but very classic Italian. Bar, restaurant, pool are just perfect in every way. Staff was very kind and helpful

Stunning old world hotel with great amenities
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We were only going to spend 2 nights here, but was so impressed with the overall amenities and superb food, we decided to spend a third night. I had a wonderful massage and we thoroughly enjoyed all the antiques of the hotel. We travelled to Portofino one day for lunch and the rest of the time, we walked all around. Absolutely a wonderful hotel and will definitely go back again.

A real treat

This hotel is perfect in every way. It sits high up on a hill giving wonderful views over the town below. But only a 5 minute walk down steps takes you down to a lovely selection of restaurants and shops.
The staff are very welcoming and friendly.
The room was very clean and comfortable with a great shower.
Dinner was delicious and there was a fab selection at the buffet breakfast.
You will not be disappointed!

A beautiful location and a first Class Hotel well situated to enjoy the views over the bay and with easy access to the centre of the town. Facilities include a heated indoor and outdoor pool [in season]; spa and beauty parlour for massages; and gym for those seeking such activities. The main restaurant has internal and external seating and there is a further restaurant open in the season at lower level near to the pool for lunches and dinners.
