We went for Afternoon Tea in the Montenotte Hotel for Mother's Day and it was absolutely fantastic. The food was phenomenal and the staff were simply wonderful! They were friendly and approachable and went above and beyond for us at every opportunity. The value for money was exceptional. Will definitely be back.

The view from the bar and...

Lovely hotel. Ate dinner in the bar, food was good and so was breakfast. Huge choice. Staff were lovely. Couldn't fault room. Only one small criticism, kids can't use the pool till after 10 am and pool and changing area was fine but not at the same standard as the rest of the hotel
