The hotel was comfortable and warm with a great breakfast, but what was most outstanding was the personal service. On a simple level, they were great for helping with directions to resturants and ski resorts, but they made a real difference, when I needed help on a couple of occasions; I needed help with snow chains for the hire car,...

This well situated hotel is situated near the church high in the village. First our car became stuck on a very steep slippery road to the hotel. Later we were directed to a good asphalt road. The nicely renovted building is situated on the location of the old village washing place, which is now integrated in the building. A friendly... More

The small mountain town of Castel di Sangro in Italy is the unlikely location for what I can only regard as one of the worlds best fly tying events! Unlike other fly tying shows, of which I am more than familiar (I have tied at 17 shows this year alone) the SIM fly festival is not about being the biggest... More

The location is fantastic. We parked the car and walked all over town. There are many great restaurants nearby, and the staff is always ready... More

I'm sorry to have to write a negative review for something that is not the hotel management's fault, but in the end, it is important for travellers to know of the issue before booking as it *severely* affects your stay. The most important thing for me in a hotel is quality of sleep and I can honestly say that after... More

After a hair raising drive through really, tiny streets we reached Il Lavatoio (note to self - don't use sat nav once you reach the center of old Italian towns). The hotel is lovely - the old town 'washing room' preserved with a modern hotel attached. Wifi coverage was good although it got a little slow at night. The hotel... More
