Hotel Pausania Inn
“A brilliant hotel and destination”
Mr Bob - Success Tours
As part of a trip organised by Success Tours 36 of us stayed for 7 nights at the Pausania Inn. We loved every minute of our visit, from the moment we arrived until the time we had to leave. Flight delays meant we arrived 3 hours late. Even so reception was friendly and efficient and room allocations quickly made. After our welcome drink an excellent dinner was served. Where some wanted a change of room it was done with good grace and to the guest’s satisfaction. The staff were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. More like being part of a family than in a hotel. One of us needing a medical consultation was taken to a local facility for help which was given at no charge. Our rooms were very clean and serviced unobtrusively. Air conditioning was available, but for our part not required. There was a good choice of menu available each evening and a selection of wines to accompany the meals. The bar was tended each evening adding to the convivial atmosphere. Breakfasts were super with a great choice to suit every taste. Internet access was variable but sufficient for my purposes. As the weather warmed up during the week many of us had a dip in the pool which was well maintained and clean.
After past experiences we weren’t quite so keen on the pasta preparation but it was such fun learning how to knead the dough and making the gnocchetti sardi, ably demonstrated and guided by Dorino. It was so good we ate the fruits of our labours accompanied by various sauces the following evening. After the pasta preparation our hosts took us on a tour of the well maintained gardens and vineyard followed by snacks of local foods and wines. A wonderful lunch time treat which exceeded all expectations.
The hotel laid an optional visit to the museum at Aggius, a panoramic drive through the hills and a picnic lunch in an Olive grove where one of the world’s oldest known olive trees is situated. We surprised our coach driver and guide by going ahead in spite of the rain, which stopped after a while anyway.
In truth a great time was had by all. All good things come to an end, we were sad to leave and would have no hesitation in recommending the Pausania Inn to any one or group thinking of visiting the Tempio region of Sardinia. A big thank you to the management and staff.
