The location of this hotel is not bad. It's fantastic to get up in the morning to a view like this. However, the hotel seems worn down, and could use a renovation. The exception was the bathroom, which was completely new.
In the description of the hotel it appears, that there’s a pathway to Pettenasco and Orta san Giulio. This is not true, however. You must walk along the road, which is heavily trafficked and just plain dangerous to walk on. Besides it’s longer to Orta san Giulio than the description claims. There are closer to 5 km than 3.
The thing about the restaurants dishes to be ‘appetising artworks* isn’t true either. There’s really nothing wrong with the food, but it is definitely nothing special. There’s other restaurants in the area, who’s far better.
We’ve also had better service than at this hotel. Especially in the restaurant, it seems like, you are trying to be, more than you are. More consideration is shown for the people coming from outside than the people, who’s staying at the hotel.
