We stayed for two days at the Hotel Perbacco. It is located in a historical building, reached by 3 switchbacks, high in the mountains, about 30 minutes north of Campobasso. We chose it because of the excellent Trip Advisor references.
It wasn't clear that we needed a car, from the information we got, so when we confirmed our arrival with the owner, Julio, and asked the best way to reach the hotel from the train, we discovered our problem. He kindly picked us up at the train and helped us arrange car rental.
There is an unbelievably romantic restaurant onsite and Julio's wife, Maria, cooks for guests. She is an excellent cook and the superbly decorated dining room, all arches and stone, was special. Prices were reasonable and wine choices quite good too. They also offer complimentary breakfast, which was quite acceptable. Though we had advised through Expedia that my husband had dietary restrictions, the message did not reach Julio. He found out when I called to confirm and they did an admirable job in trying to adapt to his restrictions.
Our only disappointment was the room itself. Though it had a lovely view, and was furnished with quality pieces, the room had no balcony or easy place to sit to enjoy the view. We suggested a table and chair near the window.
Overall, a good experience in a wonderful location. Julio was a great promoter for the Molise region, which is not highly touristy. He called it the 'green' region of Italy and he is SO right. Worth a visit!!
