The rooms are a bit old fashioned but that's ok. Breakfast is good and they bring refills of coffee.There is lots of easy parking outside.Arbatax is not very pleasant consisting mainly of a ship repair yard and a large industrial estate. It is not a place for people seeking beach holidays. Because there is a lot of commerce there are... More

We booked based on trip advisor reviews and of course the price (off season). The place was a delight in that the property was lovely, nice landscaping and had people there! Even though it was off season, the place was either full or close to full. We had a nice room that was very clean and we enjoyed fast and... More

We very much enjoyed our stay. The hotel is small but very pretty, with beautiful vegetation (olives, palms, a variety of flowers etc). The hotel public areas are well appointed. Beaches are a few minutes away (walkable). We recommend the beaches of ORRI and CEA which a reachable by car (15 minutes away)

The room was large, spotlessly clean and well provided with everything you could want. The staff are friendly and helpful - and speak excellent English! Breakfast was delicious. The hotel is in a quiet area and was a perfect place for a restful break. There's a small beach less than ten minutes walk away, though I generally took the time... More

it was our second stay, the previous in summer of 2010, and again we appreciated the friendliness, cleanness and high standards of the premises. As a family of 4, this time we had a smaller room than the previous time but that was not a real problem. Breakfast is gorgeous and the home-made cakes superb. It's a pity there isn't... More

After travelling around Sardinia where we stayed in sub standard acomodation the Mulino Vecchio was a wonderful relief. The hotel is clean, spacious and deserving of a higher star rating (we've stayed in five stars that are not as comfortable).The beds were extremely comfortable and the family room exceeded our expectations-spacious, air conditioning, lovely balcony, all mod cons in immaculate...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and found the owners to be very good. However, the hotel itself is in the middle of a residential area and you must have a car to get anywhere. The breakfast has an excellent variety of sardinian cakes etc. The room we stayed in was small and on the ground floor. Because... More
