The hotel is real Italian and far away from the crowds on the small Island of St. Elena but easily accessible by Water Bus or footpaths. Lots of the Water busses call there and we bought a 7 day pass which was very worth doing because we used it several times a day visiting lots of Islands. There is no reception but Alfonso is just a call, email or text away. Breakfast is ample, simple continental for us to prepare ourselves but we are Coeliac and everything was gluten free as we requested. There are plenty of places to eat at all prices. The rooms were bigger than expected, the bed room was comfortable. There was a sofa, microwave, small sink and table and chairs in the second room with a kettle and refrigerator adjoining. The bathroom included a shower, WC, bidet and basin. There was hot water to all taps.
