When we visited the Grand 9 years ago it was hardly grand. It was tired but with a killer view! Our return last week was to a newly renovated and designed hotel with wonderful amenities, a very welcoming staff, well appointed bathrooms, and a very good terrace restaurant with a Killer view! Good to know that somethings never change. Everything...

Getting into Portovenere on a Sunday is interesting and the one attraction about this place is the carpark (once you find it!). The traffic system is one way and the parking is just before you round the bend to the hotel in a private underground parking place, which is not obvious from the road. Signage is obscure. So either go...

We had a beautiful room looking over the harbour and the gorgeous town of Portovenere. We had a few problems with the sliding glass doors not locking onto the balcony but that was soon fixed....

We really liked this place. The view from the restaurant over the harbour is stunning. The breakfast has so much to choose from, with the added bonus that you can even make your own juice. The staff are charming and helpful and our room was spotless. The food in the restaurant was of a very high standard, with a strong...

Good to have upgraded to family suite. Close to restaurants and beach. All ferries accessible to cinque terre. Dinning in hotel is finest as they have heart in food making and service. Restaurants outside are the best in selection and local choices. Been there 7 days is more than enough.
