I stayed there overnight on a motorbike trip in one of their standard rooms on the "Festa della Repubblica" bank holiday. The building, located at the eastern end of the town, is purpose-built as a hotel and therefore features amenities like a parking bay at the main entrance, allowing the unloading of my baggage prior to parking the motorbike in the spacious parking area.
My room on the first floor was of sufficient size with a good bathroom. The large bed had one of these "foam"-type mattresses. This was something I had to get used to initially, but after a while it felt exceedingly comfortable if compared to an ordinary spring mattress.
The restaurant "Giorgione's" was excellent, the fine food served by very attentive staff. Where however the hotel is fundamentally flawed, as already mentioned by other reviewers, is the quality of the interior wall insulation. The neighbour in the next room using the toilet or wash basin was so clearly audible in my room, I suppose if that neighbour had used the toilet in my room the noise annoyance couldn't have been any greater. For a purpose-designed building this is a grave shortcoming. Assuming that the staff is aware of this shortcoming, one would have expected them to leave an empty room in between two occupied ones to reduce the disturbance, but no such luck in spite of the hotel being near empty on that day.
Another slight annoyance was the absence of lubrication on the room door latches. The seized-stiff mechanism either required the door key to close the door quietly or slam the door shut with considerable effort. As most guests tend to opt for the second method, this of course adds to the noise disturbance.
However, aside from the noise problem the hotel featured all the mod-cons a weary traveller needs at the end of the day.

Room Tip: Rooms facing north (i. e. away from the main road) have less road noise.

I knew this hotel very well as I am a frequent visitor to this area but had never stayed there.The reception and checkin was quick and efficient and friendly,staff spoke good English.There was ample free parking onsite and you can stop your car right infront of the entrance to unload. Downstairs near reception there was a small gym and a very large lounge area with several large leather sofas and flat screen TV all overlooking the garden area which had tables outside for the better weather.

There is a lift and our room [superior double] was spacious with clean modern furniture a safe and mini bar.The bed was huge and the bathroom was also spacious with a shower only.We were provided with slippers and 2 dressing gowns all nice touches and adding value for money. The room also had a lovely balcony with big French doors opening out onto it equipped with a table and chair overlooking the garden.

The hotel restaurant is good and the service excellent and very professional but it is expensive for this area and as we stayed for 6 nights the menu doesn't change that much but there are plenty of cheaper places to eat nearby but you do need a car.Breakfast was plentiful and well presented and laid out in the conservatory.

Overall we had a very pleasant stay the staff were at all times friendly and helpful and the hotel really is value for money,they even opened up extra early to serve us breakfast on the day we checked out without us even asking it was a complete surprise. The hotel however is mainly used for business stopovers and does have a very corporate feel about it being very involved with the race track in the town[be warned when the races are on you can hear it from your room].

The only negatives are one the free Wi Fi only lasts for 2 hours at a time so you have to get a new code every time to log in which is annoying and two the rooms are noisy if there are alot of guests in,you can hear toilets flushing and people snoring next door.Also the doors slam very loudly and there is no carpet in the corridor which makes people walking up and down outside very audible.

However overall really good would definately stay ther again if in the area

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the garden its much quieter

We spent one night here and were surprised, that the terrace was not prepared for visitors. There is no pool, which could be nice in hot weather. The restaurant was very good and the prices were quite reasonable. The staff was very helpful.
