Ilona, 3-night trip

4/10 Fair

Disappointing
Breakfast servers stingy even with the minimal “buffet” offerings; they are also condescending and rude (for example, staff starting arguing with me that a clearly rotten peach they gave me was not rotten- all I wanted was a different peach. We left hungry each morning as it was literally easier to go somewhere else to get more food than to get staff to give sufficient helpings). Water on the premises is not potable. Hot water inadequate for more than a 5 minute shower. Toilet inadequately maintained (made nausea-inducing, very loud screeching noise for about 30 seconds after each flush). Room dirty (cockroaches, etc). Frequent electricity brownouts during our stay.

Country hotel with wonderful garden
We had a mixed experience; the garden, the people, the space in our room were all wonderful. We loved sitting out in the morning and evening in this delightful space. We thought breakfast was expensive (7 euros) and should have been included. Getting to it along badly signed and poor tracks is not simple. It is also a fault of sat navs which confuse poor tracks for proper roads. The bed in our large room was very firm and uncomfortable for me.

Peaceful rural location
This was a very quiet restful place with beautiful gardens - apart from the main garden by the villa, our room overlooked a smaller more private garden with lovely flowers everywhere. Breakfast was very good, and leisurely, available until 11.00am, which was perfect for those who liked a lazy start to the day. As the villa was in the middle of nowhere, the nearest restaurant was a few minutes drive away. Getting into Syracuse was easy - about 15 mins away, and the hotel staff were very helpful telling us where we could park!
