We arrived by train and were advised to take a taxi as the hotel is on a hill. It is and quite a steep one. Very friendly staff to greet us. Beautiful decor and our room was perfect. Large room, big comfortable bed, large modern bathroom, a wonderful view of town and sea, clean, clean, clean. The breakfast included was very good with lots to choose from. This was our last stay before returning home and we could not have asked for better.
It is on a hill and is a bit of a walk from town. Only about 5-10 minutes from the centre of Santa Margarita and for us not a problem but for someone with mobility issues it could be. Parking seemed to be an issue for the parking area was small(we were not driving so were not affected) however the staff was very accomplished at organizing the cars.
The building was unusual and the entrance hall enormous. The staff were pleasant and the view from the roof top solarium splendid. The room was o.k. and the bathroom adequate, but large clean white towels and good hot water.
The access to the hotel was horrendous, on a corner of a main road. Getting up the driveway at night was hazardous and the parking very limited.
I was very impressed by hotel appearance from outside. Real small castle, with very green territory, lots of flowers around, very beautiful and romantic. Inside its not a luxury hotel, but very cosy and nicely decorated. Staff was good, room always clean, breakfast nice as well. View from the roof of the building is stunning, u can see all Santa Margarita underneath you. Location is good as well, uphill, but that what gives you this great view. 7 min walking to the sea. I absolutely loved this hotel.
Very impressive building,nice clean rooms,great breakfast,nice wiev
Parking somewhat difficult understandably
It's a great hotel for the money! clean, nice rooms with shouwer and toilet. The location is central!
The hotel is hard to find, as is everythin in Venice!
It is quiet, the staff are friendly, it is a lovely building and the views are great.
Breakfast is dull, the coffee is not too good.
The railways path is a real pain, Train are passing with a frequency of 20 mins, and keep going u to late at night and strat early in the morning
This hotel is somewhat like an old castle perched on a hill overlooking Sta Margherita town and the sea. We chose this hotel because it really looked nice, had parking and was of great value. We really liked our stay here and found the hotel's decor and ambiance quite fitting. We had a nice corner room with a beautiful sea view and a spacious bathroom (room 26). It is very convenient for people with cars as there is parking (parking is quite an experience as you have to manage a steep zigzag driveway, if you have trouble, someone will assist you). It is a 10 minute walk downhill to town. Breakfast was pleasant.
staff, location to super village was very good too, especially if you want to work those calf muscles!
no internet facilities in rooms, also tv control was faulty, room was fairly compact, 47 stairs to room.
