On arrival I was a little disappointed. I arrived as it was getting dark. It seemed to to be in the middle of nowhere on a main road. I was tired and looking forward to a bath. No bath, only a shower.
But it was a large room, a double bed for at least three people. Quality old furniture, a table with drawers, bedside cupboards a drawers, large wardrobe (though only three coat hangers). Free fridge, free safe.
Large bathroom, though as noted, no bath.
The shower revived me and I went down to dinner in Ristorante All Corte.
I had intended to eat out, but I was not near anywhere, and as I was to learn, no decent restaurants in Bassano del Grappa.
Many claim to be gourmet restaurants, but few are. Ristorante All Corte was the exception. The food excellent.
Free wifi, though no computer.
Roberto and his staff always eager to please.
In the morning I found I was overlooking countryside and mountains. Across the road a 16th Cent Italian villa.
A pleasant half hour walk into Bassano along the road, then along the river.
The only downside was the buffet breakfast. It was very poor and let down an otherwise excellent hotel.
