Beautiful historical hotel
On arriving at the hotel, we felt like we were walking into a beautiful stately home and welcomed by the staff. our rooms were large and well equipped with outstanding views from our third floor balconies. though the hotel has old world charm, it has modern equipment. the air conditioning was very quiet and very effective. breakfast was lovely and did include a small amount of sausage and bacon and scrambled egg for those that want that. the rest of breakfast available gave so much choice that you certainly wouldn't need lunch. all staff were very welcoming and would always greet you. in particular the young pool attendant could not be more attentive. parking at the hotel is free and plentiful. i would recommend a car though as it is too far to walk to syracuse centre. you can catch a bus instead as there is a good bus service and it avoids the problem of parking in the town centre. if i was picky i would say that there should not be a hire charge for pool towels and the pool umbrellas are getting rickety.
