We picked the hotel for its location and facilities. In reality we found the hotel exceeded our expectations. We chose a room facing the marina and this was excellent. With air-con and a fridge we had everything we required. Previous reviews mention poor wifi but we found it excellent with only minor interruptions.
The location was marvellous - close to the beach, the Marine pool, shops and restaurants, ferry services and the train station. It's rare to find this perfect combination.
Breakfast was really good with many selections on offer. All the basics were there together with cakes, pastries, scrambled eggs and bacon and fruit etc.
Staff on reception are friendly and very helpful as are the two ladies at breakfast time.
As previous reviewers have said, Lavagna is not a pretty town but it is functional ie everything you want you can get. Good selection of restaurants - we went to half-dozen or so. Food in each one was really good although nothing spectacular.
This is one of the best holidays abroad that we have had.
