    The shuttle driver Andreas was marvellous and helpful. However the bus did not run all day.

    Excellent breakfast with stunning views from the balcony. Hotel set in extensive grounds overlooking Tropea and the sea. Lovely cool room.

    Fantastic location with lovely view over the sea. 15 minutes walk to the city center of Tropea. 10 minutes walking distance to the train station. (The google maps location guides slightly to a wrong location and needs to be updated). However, very nice and lovely staff. Great breakfast buffet which was way beyond over our expectations. Starting the day with a great breakfast with view on the sea and the village was amazing.

    Everything was perfect! The views on Tropea and the sea were briljant. There is a really big garden with several terraces where you can enjoy the views. The lady at the check-in was the best. She speaks really good English and she was really helpful with everything!

    The bed was a bit hard for my liking, otherwise a perfect stay.

    A very nice hotel under new management. They are working very hard to do some updating. We found everything to be just perfect for our stay. The staff was so kind and helpful. The cleaning staff did a great job on our room. Breakfast was the best. The view is amazing. Safe secure place to park our rental car.

    We checked in with a last minute booking. We were early but no issues going to to the room early. The staff was really friendly and helpful shared lot of recommendations about places bars and restaurants. Also offered bikes directly at the hotel for a good price to rent. Also breakfast was okay

    The location is not far walking from the town, takes about 10 mins walking max however on a night there is no street lamps so make sure you have a torch or better still get a taxi. Might seem lazy but its steep hill with no lighting and cars can come by pretty fast.

    Staff were fabulous and the lady at reception went above and beyond with information about the area. She even helped us the next day when the roads were closed. The rooms were clean and great value, the gardens were well lit on an evening and felt safe. Breakfast was super tasty and very varied. Enjoyed our stay here!

    If you are not ready to enjoy your time with different insects (that are part of the flora around and enter the room, not because it is dirty or other), better ask before to prepare the room for you. But for this price and this view, this good staff and the breakfast - this is not the big problem.

    The door was difficult to unlock sometimes, but that was probably our own fault after a few cocktails in the town! The fridge leaked a little, but the fact that they provided a fridge was a nice touch in itself.

    The staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was absolutely divine! A great choice, especially when we'd been backpacking around Europe for 2 months. The hotel was very accommodating when providing us with a bigger room with 2 separate beds when we'd originally booked a double (the guy I was travelling with isn't my boyfriend so wanted to avoid an awkward double bed situation). The shower was lovely and the hotel provided free soap and shampoo etc.

    It is outside the centro storico, and is impossible to walk to/from centro storico at night (as you basically need to walk on the highway), so think twice if you are not coming with a car. Indeed, even if you come with a car it is too much trouble to go down each time with the car!

    The staff speak reasonable English and are warm and helpful. Breakfast is excellent. The room is simple but adequately equipped with things you need, and is reasonably clean. There is this beautiful terrace for sea view and view of Tropea centro storico. Free parking just outside the hotel.

    It’s not to close to the beach, but not that far, it’s a 10 min walk.

    The b&b is located up a hill with a very beautiful garden. The view is spectacular. The breakfast was delicious you could choose from fresh fruits, cakes, jam, cereals or salami and soft cheese. The room was very cozy and they cleaned and arranged the room every day.

    Location of hotel isn’t great if not travelling by car, and the room is fairly basic but very clean and does include all you will need (no kettle though)

    The hotel itself is lovely and you stay in almost chalet type bedrooms which is great and feels more separate from everyone, but difficult if you’re walking to get there from the train station as google maps etc. doesn’t give exact location. Perfect beach (twenty mins walk) and loads of lovely restaurants. The breakfast is brilliant and the staff are so welcoming
