As has been noted elsewhere, the breakfast was very generic and the coffee, it has to be said, was simply dreadful. In addition, as at least two other reviewers have noted, the two gentlemen staff who supervise breakfast, made us, as guests, feel as if we were being overly scrutinised at breakfast. I'm sure they were trying to be helpful but it came across as vaguely judgemental, as if they thought we might steal something. It was not a big thing and would not prevent me from staying at the hotel again, but it was odd and has been noted by other travellers too. Perhaps they could just relax a bit more – the pepper and salt shakers and the cutlery were still there when we left!
The location is excellent, the hotel is spotlessly clean and the receptionist, when we arrived, was extremely warm and welcoming. The price was very reasonable and there was, for this standard at the hotel, pleasing attention to detail. This is an excellent location from which to go to the islands and from which to enjoy all that this part of northern Italy has to offer.
