Relais La Fattoria Hotel Passignano sul Trasimeno Reviews
Nice on the outside, disappointing in. Sep 21, 2010
We booked this hotel because of its nice presentation on the internet and its situation on the north eastern slopes above lake Trasimeno.
The price was reasonable and we were able to book a preferred room with a view on the lake.
We arrived at the hotel by a small byroad ascending from highway 75bis at the north east shore of Lago Trasimeno, about 20 kilometers west of the city of Perugia. Castel Rigone is just a hamlet, so it isn't hard to find the hotel.
There's no parking facility near the hotel entrance, you have to drive along a very small street leading to an open field acting is parking. It is safe though.
Indeed, the outside of the hotel looks promissing. Behind the entrance gate you see the small swimming pool with possibilities to use some deck chairs. On the right handside is the reception and the lobby. Staff is very helpful.
On the leftside of the reception is a small corridor leading to a cozy restaurant spread along more rooms some with some steps.
Breakfast is served (nice buffet) with a view on the pool. Dinner was also nice.
So far so good.
Unfortunately our very positive feelings about Relais La Fattoria turned 100% after entering our room.
It did have a beautiful (partial) view on the lake, but that's all for the positive side.
The furniture was in urgent need for replacement. The bed was small, all but firm and the wall paper tried to escape from the walls. The room was rather tiny and so was the basic bathroom.
We had booked for a few days via the hotel's internet site, but decided to leave after one night. It was very nice that the manager gave us a refund for the other nights booked, but not stayed.
