6/10 Good

The bed is super hard. The food isn’t good. No coffee in the room. It’s more like a three star hotel. The blinds don’t actually keep the light out of the room.

6/10 Good

Room walls are paper thin, lovely grounds but very tired building & rooms. Shower head was in need of clean as water went everywhere that’s assuming it didn’t fall out of its holder! Dinner was nice and staff all very friendly. We were only here for 1 night stop so it served its purpose.

8/10 Very good

Beautiful setting and gardens. Staff unfailingly friendly and helpful.A few. minor problems, most fixed promptly.Over-designed,irritating taps in basin which could not deliver a bowl of hot water.Shower panels fixed too high so it leaked.Endless repetitive 'dinner jazz' muzak. Food great but menu same daily unless you have 'half board' and no one, including hotels .com explained that the was an option

2/10 Poor

Terrible value
Hust calling out a pretty poor hotel. We booked for 4 nights but only stayed for one, kissing goodbye to about £600 but so poor was the experience we just decided to go elsewhere. The hotel is very dated allover. There has been some effort to update some areas but overall the whole hotel feels very cheap for the price. The room itself feels dated. The blinds and curtains let in lots of light. The air-conditioning doesn't work. Reading some other comments and out experience it's clear it doesn't work. It didn't work in our room, it didn't work in the gym or the spa. Set it to 19 degrees and it is obviously on but no cool air comes out. Clearly Best Western are scrimping again! It was about 25+ outside so this lead to an uncomfortable nights sleep and the main reason we left early. The bed was good though! The main gym bench/weight equipment is broken. The outdoor pool isn't open until June either. I really would avoid this hotel.

Nice hotel just a short distance from Pescara
Nice hotel just on the outskirts of town (about 10 minutes south of Pescara). The hotel was clean and in good condition. We had a beautiful view of the Adriatic off our balcony. We tried to call the reception area a few times during our stay but they never picked up. Instead we went down to the front desk to ask our questions. A couple days after we left the hotel, my partner realized that items were left in the room. The hotel staff was able to locate the items and agreed to mail them to us when we return home.
