Handy Location Posted 10-Nov-2007
Stayed at start of Nov 07. This hotel is convenient for visiting the delightful town and port of Trani( 10 minutes) and the Gargarno peninsula ( just over an hour), as well as being only 25 minutes from Bari Airport. It is handy for late arrivals, early departures. Hotel was well signposted from at least two of the Bisceglie exits from SS16. Despite the torrential rain, the hotel had a welcoming ambience. It was set back from the main road, so there was no road noise. The receptionists were very helpful. There was an end of season feel to the hotel, but there were sufficient guests to give it atmosphere. The restaurant was closed, but the bar was open. The rooms were reasonable size with balconies, some having a view of the sea ( on a clear day !). The décor reflected that of the hotel in general, perhaps a little tired. The hotel was very quiet inside with respect to internal plumbing sounds, and so was restful. Some corridor noise very early one morning caused by inconsiderate departing guests was the only downside. We found a lovely sea front promenade with views approx 350 meters away. For eating, there are loads of restaurants in Trani ( 5 miles), particularly at the port. Also some in Bisceglie itself, about 3 miles away. There is a Pizzeria 400 meters up the main road, and seems to be a popular venue for Villa guests. Particularly because there is no need to drink and drive.
