We were not told of the indoor swimming pool although we asked where the pool was. Were pointed to the outdoor pool which was cold in September. This was very disappointing. The breakfast was poor, even had to ask for butter. The hotel was very difficult to find as a road was closed. Went round and round in circles. We could not eat in the hotel as one has to order in the morning and we arrived in the afternoon.

A beautiful facility. Big rooms, perfect bed, very clean, free parking and wifi. Not many places you stay in also have a chapel that dates from the 1500! Breakfast (included) was usual continental fare, simple and filling. Staff are exceedingly helpful. The castle courtyard has been turned into a wonderful spot for evening drinks and relaxing, unfortunately the weather did not allow us to do that. The decor and sense of history are amazing, and the roof top view fabulous.
Strong recommendation if you are anywhere nearby you go out of your way to stay.
The negatives. Torre San Susanna is an old out of the way town, that from what we saw has no real 'tourist' attractions. We did not find alternatives to the hotel for dinner. But if you like pizza, the castle has its own pizzeria, and it is good pizza. But there is only pizza.
They have a few video lottery terminals that can get loud in the dinning area, but will never disturb the rooms.
But, the absolute worst thing is the lack of a sign. Without a carabinieri volunteer riding shot gun we never would have found it. Even the volunteer had trouble!
Totally Excellent in all aspects, we were "off season" so could not enjoy the pools, but the
spa is very nice. Front staff very helpful, even before our arrival! If you want to explore Brindisi/Lecce and Tararnto and the cities surrounding THIS IS THE PLACE! Restaurant
was good for A DINNER, but you will want to venture out into Puglia to taste it right!

Spent 5 days at the hotel with my teenage sons and cannot speak highly enough about the hotel generally and the staff in particular who were amazing.
The overall experience was excellent and the only negatives I can think of were that the triple room was a bit "cosy" and that lunch and dinner had to be ordered by 11am from a limited daily menu (but was of high quality)
Blue Roses is a fairly basic hotel in a not very pretty Italian town. Its close to Brindisi Airport and close to many of the reasons you are in Puglia in the first place. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and air conditioned and its very reasonably priced. But the best bit is the restaurant located in one of the two hotel blocks. Its brilliant and as always in Puglia, great value.
