Some hotels are sprawling resorts, leaving you in no doubt they are there. The Best Western Plus Hotel looks tiny from the road, and is easily driven past. However looks are deceiving, as this hotel goes back a long way. The check-in process was very quick and efficient with all the staff showing off their excellent English.
I booked a room with a balcony, and was given a room on the ground floor with its own garden, I was slightly disappointed that nothing was in the garden, not even a single chair or table, which was a missed opportunity.
Breakfast was very nice, it was in the adjacent restaurant (Nero Balsamico). I particularly enjoyed the real honeycomb and choices of parmesan/mozzarella, as well as cold meats. The warm fayre was as expected, scrambled eggs, franks and bacon. I was very pleased with the fresh fruit and the use of a juicer, this made a pleasant change.
The pool and leisure facilities were good, the indoor pool is a small affair but looks good, and was nice and warm. Steam rooms were confined to the male and female changing rooms. Alas its use as a steam room was not great, as everybody seemed to enjoy leaving the door open or ajar, obviously not the hotels fault though.
Parking was particularly good here, and there were lots of available spaces, which were free of charge (something Italy seems to have few of).
The location is nice, although located in Modena, it is a fair drive into the city centre, and quite an expensive cab ride (if you were inclined). It was fairly well placed for the tourist spots, e.g. Ferrari/Lamborghini/Panini (Maserati) museums, but all needing a fairly decent drive each of the locations. less
