Nice rustic hotel...hard to get toPosted Oct 5, 2013
The hotel itself was charming and rustic and very comfortable. We stayed one night and had dinner and breakfast and the food was great. If you stay here keep in mind that the hotel is on a hill top via a one lane road that is very windy. We found it difficult to navigate. But the hotel itself was great and has great views!

Incredible view!- not convenient for 1 night :(Posted Aug 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
Staff v. kind & friendly. Communication good, speak English well and email promptly. An incredible location w/breathtaking views of coastline. Arrived by train at 7 so couldn't use the hotel shuttle, 2x day at 9:30 & 16:30. Cab cost 15 €. It wound up a v. steep narrow, and hair-raising road for 10 mins. Stayed in family rm essentially 2 adjoining rms w/tile floors & 2 bathrooms. Adequate, fairly clean, but not v. cosy. Admired the view & had dinner at the restaurant. Sat outside adjacent to the spa, but were eaten up by mosquitos, 14+ bites. Was it the sitting water, or just bad luck? It needed cleaning too, ring around the edge, not pleasant to look at. The inside of the restaurant lavishly decorated & in hindsight wish we'd sat inside. Didn't use the pool because was late & were a little put off by the shabbiness/cleanliness of the facilities. Meal was tasty & the waiters v. nice, but 120€ total (no wine, 2 starters, 4 mains, 3 desserts). In the morning left too early to enjoy the breakfast or the free shuttle. B-fast looked good though, & giant Nutella jar very funny. We had to pay 20 € to get back to the station (order a cab & it is more). Great hotel for a family but not for a 1-night stay. If you can save $ by using the shuttle & can stay to enjoy the location then worth it. Facilities in need of spring cleaning but pretty accurate to the photos, & staff all very pleasant. For us, our mistake because we spent $400 + for the night and we were there only for 12 hs. Duh!

Peace and quietPosted Jul 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
A very peaceful location ideal for de-stressing and just chilling out; staff were all very friendly and efficient. The room was located in an annex and was really a suite of two rooms, one without air conditioning, a bathroom and balcony; it was lovely. The service from all staff was excellant. The swimming pool was lovely. Visitors should be directly informed of free facilities such as wi fi bycycles, gym etc. The shuttle bus is restricted, however there is a local bus located nearby which is very useful and can be used to explore the area; timetables should be made available. Overall a very enjoyable stay and we will return.

Lovely hotelPosted Jul 6, 2013
Pros: The views and our balcony
Cons: The road up to it - which became quite fun by the end!
Lovely, friendly hotel with gorgeous views of the coast, both from our balcony and from the lovely terrace that breakfast was served on. Emilio the head waiter has worked there for 50 years and really looked after us. For breakfast, if you're expecting a full English you might be disappointed - but you're in Italy so go straight for the gorgeous cappuccino, fresh breads and homemade jams. We ate in the restaurant one evening - the homemade tortellini were amazing and like nothing you'd ever buy in a supermarket. Our room was on the small side, but spotlessly clean and with a lovely shower. This hotel was in a great location to explore both the Italian and French sides of the Riviera. The drive up the very steep, winding road is not for the faint hearted, but something you get used to and you just need to beep before you get to a corner...We will happily stay here whenever we revisit the area.

Unbeatable View!Posted Jun 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
The view was unbelievable - having breakfast on the terrace looking up and down the coast was a high point of our holiday. Out suite was delightful, 2 balconies with wonderful views. When eating in the hotel try the demi-pensione rather than a la carte - it is really good and works out much better value. Definitely going back there!

Lovely personal servicePosted Jun 4, 2013
A lovely hotel set up high on a hillside. Difficult to get to if you don't have a car, although you can (sometimes) get a taxi from the town. The management and staff were very efficient and keen to please, with a special mention going to Emilio for his personal attention. The quality of the dinners in the restaurant was superb, although we did feel that it was a little over priced. The buffet breakfast could have been better, and was probably typical of a basic Italian hotel rather than one of this level. Beautiful views from the restaurant, terrace and our bedroom, overlooking the bays of Monaco and even Nice off in the distance. With only a handful of bedrooms, this is a hotel where you will be personally known and looked after.

Beautiful viewsPosted Jun 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel and grounds not in pristine condition but family hotel with a lot of character. Charming staff. Access up a mountain lane gives enjoyable driving. Stayed in one of the suites which had excellent views of the sea and Monaco. Peaceful location about 10 minutes drive from the town.

Very nice hotel for couples -pity about the accessPosted Oct 10, 2012
Pros: The frienly staff and god service .
Cons: Arranging taxis constanly.
Location: The hotel had fantastic views but it was NOT possible to walk into Ventimiglia.
The hotel was too far out of town and it was not feasable to walk into Ventimiglia or back as the road leading up to the hotel was poor and a nightmare to drive on. Access to the hotel was by far its biggest drawback.
