Upon arrival, I had trouble reaching the owners by phone. They called back within a few minutes and it turned out they had been at the doctor with their poor sick baby. They arrived soon after and let us in, helping with our bags. We got a choice of rooms and we took the largest one which was nicely decorated, had a very comfortable bed and a good bathroom. The free wifi was excellent. Breakfast was nice - simple, as Italian breakfasts are, but still fulfilling.

It was an easy five minute into the main part of town and the water where there are a huge range of bars and restaurants. We got some good recommendations from the owner and found it to be a good base for exploring the town and Portofino.

We did have a small problem with our room on the second day of our two night stay. The assistant came to us after breakfast to say we would need to move to another room for our second night because the one we were in was booked by someone else. This was strange and not something we were particularly happy about. We packed up our bags and left them there when we headed out for the day. I had a call from the owner who apologised profusely, saying the mixup had occurred during the commotion with her sick baby yesterday. They moved our bags for us and gave us a discount on our stay to make up for the trouble. This was a nice touch and really showed that they take customer service seriously. It was a bit annoying but we understood that these things can happen, and the second room was just as nice as the first.

Overall, I would still highly recommend this as a great place to stay in Santa Margherita.

Great value, lovely service, friendly attentive, helpful. Would go back easily if in Santa Margherita again which I fully intend to be...
Shortish walk from train station - we had lots of bags and kids - no problem.

It was a delight to arrive here after Rome and Florence. It was quiet and lovely. Very close to the town and train station. The room was very clean and modern

The hosts were lovely and made us feel very welcome. We were even given a lift in their car back to the train station on the day we departed. Maybe they have their new baby by now. Our very best wishes to them.

Wow! L'ORA BLU is a special find. Rates are reasonable, location is top notch - 5 min walk from train station and 5 minutes to main square and marina. We walked 5km to Portofino and this was a highlight...mustdo! Breakfast at BnB was good, although they only started serving at 830 and that was a bit too late for us. We booked the triple room with balcony. Great airy room with excellent amenities, complete with bar fridge and a proper hair dryer, something that hotels never seem to get right. Check in went smooth with free meet and great at train station. We received a full brief of the area, including excellent restaurant suggestions.Would def recommend to others.

The location is good, near the train station and the centre of town.
The host was superb, ready to help us with all sorts of information and to make our stay as good as she could make it.
The breakfast was good, and the room clean, large and quiet. No ensuite, but it worked.
