When we arrived, we were given an apartment at the back of the hotel, behind the kitchens. The air-cons in the apartment were not working properly; one noisy and the other not at all, so we had to have the windows open. The noise from the kitchens' industrial air-con units kept us awake during the night. We complained in the morning and were moved to a room in the main hotel which was far better and gave us a good night's sleep.
There were also a lot of powerfully smelling 'pot-pourri' pots in the apartment which we didn't like.
"Add a restaurant & this place would be transformed"
What a fabulous building, beautifully converted from a farm 3 years ago to an exceptionally high standard. The rooms, with air conditioning, are equal to those of hotels charging 3 or 4 times the price. In fact I'm confident once this 'hotel' manages to acquire its full status with a restaurant the rooms will be far more expensive. When we stayed, of the 50 rooms available, at most only 3 were occupied, dont miss out on this gem, book!
The purpose of staying here was to visit Venice, and the following day into Verona for the opera. Access to both cities was extremely easy by car from this hotel.
Until a restaurant is opened, you will find VillaFranca a short drive away, with a good selection of restaurants and shops.
Whilst the staff we met were friendly and helpful there lacked any personality or atmosphere, not unusual for a hotel of this size, nothing which would stop us staying here again.
