Amazing views from this hotel and we loved the sunbathing platform and steps into the sea ( the 250 steps down to the beach got easier each day!). Very helpful and friendly staff (thanks Elena). We stayed in a large room for 4 people although the two teens had to share a sofa bed which wasn't ideal. It's a 15 minute walk uphill from the port of Ischia although there are frequent buses right outside the hotel and the hotel has a free shuttle bus on some days. Breakfast was lovely with breathtaking views across the bay. Pool area was also very pleasant and peaceful. Would definitely stay there again.
Wonderful Hotel on a Beautiful Island!
This hotel was recommended to us for the location and it was in our price range. Before we arrived, the concierge was very helpful and responsive through email. It was a lovely hotel with a beautiful view. The staff was very attentive and the breakfast provided had lots of variety including a gluten free section of selections. We enjoyed relaxing massages in the hotel spa.
Just home from our first ever time In Italy and my goodness what a holiday😊 we will definitely be back! We spent 4 nights in the what can only be described as the idyllic Hotel Le Querce. What a fabulous hotel with the most stunning views I have ever seen. The pool area was perfect and there is also a private bathing platform below the hotel. Although there are 172 steps to climb down and back up again (my husband counted them😂) it is well worth it. Our room was beside the pool and on our second night there our power failed in our room only. The young manager - unfortunately I didn’t get his name - was more than helpful and upgraded us to a beautiful room at the top of the hotel which had the most stunning views…greatly appreciated…his manner and professionalism was second to none. The hotel provide a shuttle bus which takes you down into the small town of Ischia…such a beautiful town with a castle again where the views are beautiful. Another staff member I would mention is Franchesco. I think he is the bar manager…such a friendly happy man who is an absolute asset to the hotel. Unfortunately we were only in Ischia for 4 nights but will definitely return next year and have decided it will be for no less than 1 week and will without a doubt be staying in Hotel Le Querce. Thank you to all staff for making our holiday one to remember and especially to Franchesco and the young Manager previously mentioned. Love love love Ischia and Hotel le Querce.
Hotel Le Querce Terme & Spa Ischia & Procida
If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle and want to sample a tranquil taste of ‘La Dolce Vita’, then this is the place for you. Although we are not strangers to Italy this was our first trip to Ischia and first overseas holiday post pandemic. We opted for a 7night stay, (June 6th- 13th), half board at the Hotel Le Querce & Spa which was chosen, based on the hotel’s location and the on-line post lockdown reviews we were able to find. We certainly were not disappointed! We travelled with Tui and all transfers were seamless. From Naples airport we took a short coach ride to the Port followed by a ferry crossing to the idyllic island of Ischia which took just shy of an hour to reach. The bus ride from the port to our hotel was a ten-minute trip. Our room was a standard room but very accommodating with a spacious bedroom and bathroom which were cleaned daily along with the provision of fresh bed linen and towels. The views from our large terrace were breath-taking. Breakfast was typically continental and served from the main restaurant. It offered a large selection of pastries & cakes, breads, cheeses, salamis, yoghurts, fresh fruits in addition to scrambled eggs and bacon. There was also an array of options tailored for vegetarians and vegans. Dinner was served from the outdoor restaurant which had a picturesque backdrop to the Mediterranean and provided the perfect romantic viewpoint to watch the sunset. Each night we enjoyed a four-course meal which included a mandatory starter comprising of two dishes, followed by a choice of pasta dish, main course, and dessert. There was something for everyone. The food was exceptionally flavoursome and of a high standard especially the island's classic dish, coniglio all’Ischitana ie rabbit! The hotel’s outdoor pool was a fair size and shared the exceptional views of the Mediterranean. There were plenty of complimentary sun loungers and parasols available alongside a small bar which provided snacks and drinks. The hotel also had a private bathing platform with access to the sea however to get to it you needed to be feeling energetic as it took around 100 steps to reach! Not for the faint hearted. There was also an indoor spa, hot tub, and thermal pool which unfortunately, we didn’t really take advantage of. Getting around couldn’t have been easier. Buses were frequent and the bus stop was right outside the hotel. A singe adult ticket cost 1.5 Euros if bought in advance or 2 Euros if it was bought on the bus regardless of how far you intended to travel. This made it a very cost effective way to tour the island, taking in attractions such as the famous Giardini La Mortell, (the garden museum), Il Fungo/The Mushroom Rock in Lacco Ameno, and the free hot springs located on the Bay of Sorgeto on the island's southern coast near the Bay of Sant’Angelo. The hotel also offered a free shuttle bus service to the Ischia Porto providing if booked at least an hour in advance. Alternatively, the walk to the Port was downhill from the hotel and took around 15-20 minutes at a brisk pace. Ischia Porto was home to some amazing yachts during our stay. There were plenty of restaurants, cafès, bars, and shops and even a park situated at its heart. There were also numerous sandy beaches which could be easily reached on foot from the Port. Castello Aragonese, the medieval castle which appeared as a backdrop in several of the scenes in the film, ‘The Talented Mr Ripley’, was located at the far end of Ischia Porto and took us a brisk 60 minutes’ walk from the hotel to reach. A visit is highly recommended. The dungeons were a revelation, and the roof top gardens were incredibly breath taking. From Ischia Porto we also took a short 10-minute hydrofoil trip to the neighbouring island of Procida. Starting at the main port on the island, Marina Grande, all our sightseeing was done on foot. The port had some charming buildings, and churches and lots of places to eat and drink. It’s easy to see why Ischia is such a firm favourite with the Italians visiting for holidays and weekend breaks. We had a great holiday and would certainly return and pay our friends at the Hotel Le Querce & Spa another visit.
Amazing Holiday: Beautiful Hotel on Stunning Island!
Chose this hotel mainly based on price as was looking for an affordable week away (M-F) with partner. Having read reviews found it appeared to mostly cater for non-UK guests and some reviews (especially from UK visitors) weren’t great BUT I do not understand how anyone can say anything negative about this hotel! We arrived around 11pm and were warmly greeted by a lovely man on reception who checked us in and took our cases to our room. The room was huge, and the view from our massive (shared with next door room) terrace was absolutely stunning! I had upgraded to a superior sea view room and this was well worth it. The decor was traditional but immaculately clean and the kingsize bed probably the comfiest I’ve ever had on a holiday! (And the pillows WOW!) Room was cleaned and bedding and towels changed every day. (Only teeny issue is shower door only opens so far, anyone size 18plus may have struggled to squeeze in.) Breakfast was beautiful and fresh, typical continental, with the offer of fresh eggs/omelette, service throughout very friendly and attentive. The walk to the town/port is only about 15/20 minutes and is a lovely walk, not too steep for anyone with a low to normal fitness level. Lots of beautiful cafes and restaurants in the area and Aragonese Castle well worth a visit. Every time we left/returned to the hotel we were welcomed warmly. The hotel was very quiet when we visited (end May) we saw no more than about 10 other guests, so the pool was also lovely and quiet with plenty of beds available. (I’d worried after reading about needing a swim cap, but just wore a baseball cap in the pool and no one commented.) We had drinks in the bar one night and they came with delicious warm mini-pizzas. (Around €6 for 2 beers so fantastic value!) We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant on 2 nights and the service was exceptional - we’re a young-ish couple but I really liked the slightly formal (but incredibly friendly!) dinner service. All staff were very polite and very attentive at all times. There’s no price on the menu displayed at the restaurant entrance, and I’d struggled to find menu or price online before our visit, but we paid €45 for a 4 course dinner. Which for the quality and quantity was well worth it! The house white was also incredible. Overall an absolutely fantastic hotel, I would definitely return! Don’t be put off by the fact it’s not targeting the UK market, everyone is so friendly - and speaks great English, but they also really appreciate us trying some Italian too! Ischia is gorgeous and so is this hotel!
