As I was hosting two other couples I rang Serafino with the explicit instructions NOT to take a bond from our guests, I had rang the day before, however one couple was asked and paid a bond, not happy about that. Everything else was fine and we all enjoyed the lovely breakfast and the service, thank you, Peter.

The lobby is beautiful and the fireplace in reception is very welcoming (especially on a winter night). We were greeted warmly and served a glass of red while we waited to check in. The staff were very friendly and informative. We were directed to our room and upon entry it was very clean and well presented. A simple room with nice linen and coffee/tea making area. The room was a decent size and the bathroom was clean with towels and complementary toiletries. The shower/bath was great, the running water was hot and had decent pressure. The room was quiet and we had a very nice sleep. In the morning I was in a bit of a rush to move onto the next stage of our trip and accidentally left my iPhone in the room when we checked out. A few hours later I called back in a panic and the receptionist promptly checked with the staff and the phone was recovered. When I picked it up I was so grateful for the service I had received, the honestly of the staff and the attitude they have toward service. The price of the room was also a bonus but I would’ve gladly have paid more. I can’t commend the hotel enough and I will definitely book with Serafino in future
