Lovely hotel about 20 mins walk to the city (downhill on the way in with a lovely hill to look forward to on the way back!) View from the bar of the city below is fabulous, especially at night. Good gym and swimming pool. Staff very friendly and helpful!

Beautiful hotel and very friendly and efficient staff. Lovely pool also. Room was quite dark even with all the lights on. This is the only criticism.

The Hotel Montenotte is quite a nice hotel, well laid out, well maintained and well serviced. The room were we stayed was ample enough and pretty clean. However, the views could have been better, just looking at the back of the hotel. The window does not open fully, only 1/4. The bar is nice and the restaurant offers nice food. In general quite happy with the stay, however the location is not great as it is not walking distance to the city centre.

Weekend treat

This was our first stay at the Best Western. We were met with a warm and friendly welcome, along with the recently refurbished room we were soon chilling out and enjoying a lovely meal in the restaurant. The break went far too quickly but will look forward to staying there again.
