Great location in the center of Montalcino. Our room was really an apartment - living/dining/kitchen area with a separate bedroom. Staff was friendly, helpful, arranged a wine tasting for us at the hotel owner's winery nearby.
The booked room smelled and was not totally clean. We were given another room (with some resistance)which was clean, fresh, and nicely done. the breakfast food varied from good (a fresh bread one day, eggs) to inedible (a baked pastry); the restaurant did have enough hint of cigarette smoke that i had to leave early, the owner/manager/cook was a smoker.
We very much appreciated the warm welcome and were delighted with the piano being played while we enjoyed a glass of wine. Our breakfast was exceptional, and served in a warm and friendly manner.
The decor inside the hotel ( an old building) and its location were absolutely delightful. There was a lovely open fire and the rooms were well heated which was important as it was very cold outside. Hot drinks, wine and cakes were available for us so we were made to feel very at home. We had warned them that we would not be arriving until late (11pm) from Rome airport, but, as the owner does not live on the premises and was only contactable by a message system, there was no-one there to greet us when we arrived. We rang the doorbell but there was no-one there.
beautiful place , great staff, magic!
breakfast served in the room, swimming pool, airy atmosphere, sense of freedom there is no shelf in the shower
The room was marvelous. Every detail was very nice. The swiming pool was nice after a day of sightseen. The owner was extremely helpful and received us at the door with a warm welcome. Breakfast was wonderful, prepared for us in a reserved room. The address provided from the hotel didn't help much. It took us a long time to find it. Find Galina, instead of Castiglione D'orcia. It is much closer and easy to find. GPS does not find the address.
Lovely ambience and hosts, has swimming pool and fantastic breakfast. Google map location on website is totally incorrect!
Very special atmosphere, nice furnitures, beutiful and peaceful location, calm surrounding, real countryside, wonderful sight. Lack of breakfast /dining possibility at site. It is a stone house which could be cold autumn nights, additional blanket needed (it is provided by the hotel).
A very gracious and helpful hostess. Magnificent location surrounded by rolling tuscan countryside, cool traditional apartment in renovated villa. we didnt like leaving
surrounding environment, nice views, comfortable rooms
the views were incredible the restaurant was great for breakfast, good for dinner
Superb site and kitchen
The room was extremely spacious, fastidiously clean and the view from the window was brilliant. I could not fault the hotel in any way. It was terrific.
In the middle of beautiful Val D'Orcia which is one of the World Heritage Sites,this hotel(castle) offers a very quiet but a very pleasant time in Toscuny. Restaurant is expensive but of good quality and all staffs are friendly and helpful. Montalcino, a former noble village too famous for Brunello di Montalcino is located just 10 minutes drive. Unpaved road from the gate to the hotel entrance will tarnish a beautiy of your car. No local restaurant nearby as the castle is literally in the middle of nowhere.
Location, smallness of hotel, friendliness of staff, food Separate shoiwer would have been good. The shower over the bath was too low for a man of average height.
this is the perfect hotel..It is like a dream, and i will come again as soon as i can.. yes...it is complicated to find it...but when you do, it is worth it..
The position was fantastic and accommodation good
The pastoral setting. When booking, we were given only 3 choices: 2 large apartments or an attic room suitable for one couple. We booked the attic room (no view) but learned after being there for a day or two that there were other small apartments available with a view.
gorgeous views, very comfortable apartment, could have a couple more tv channels in english (minor point)
Nice rooms, very comfortable, well equipped and furnished. Superb location with breathtaking view. Absence of personal. The owner is only reachable by cell phone. He is always very helpful and friendly, though. Breakfast consists of diy Nescafe and some crackers.
Lovely setting on a working farm that produces Mantalcino wines. Friendly owner. Quiet and out of the way from the bustle of the towns
Quiet but convenient location with great views; pool, spa pool and poolside terrace were lovely. Owner's wine, available at a good price, was excellent. Attic room had only roof windows; would have preferred a window with a view.
Beautiful surroundings and settings The manager was always available via cell, but he never met me. The Pool was not filled with water and the thermal pool seemed dirty
Beautiful apartment with outstanding view of Toscany , very peasful and romantic poor breakfast (hotel was booked as with breakfest but there were only croussaunts and milk left in refrigerator..and some jam)
I liked that the hotel put cookies and flowers in our room because I had noted that we were visiting during our 10th anniversary. The hotel manager asked us if we enjoyed the "presents" left in our room, which consisted of flowers and cookies. He specifically used the word "presents". Then when I check out he charged me 15 Euros for the "presents". This was simply taking advantage of foreign travelers. Also, when we checked in, the only person there asked for our passports, took them away, and would not return them. It was only three hours later when an English speaking employee arrived (after 7 pm) that we were able to get our passports back. This was very unprofessional and quite unacceptable!
Efficient but friendly service; the hotel restaurant is very good and breakfast excellent. Beautiful scenery which you can enjoy from the terrace.
As mentioned above excellent! A good reason to return to that region and book some more nights at your hotel! None!
very pleasant stay. great service, excellent restaurant. the best breakfast we had in italy. beautiful rooms with balcony. -
Excellent location as we were attending a wedding in the local town hall and at a nearby villa. Lots of free car parking space. Large rooms and balcony - nice views. Excellent breakfast and restaurant was good for evening meals. Very easy to find. Nothing - we really enjoyed our stay here!
cheap, clean, good breakfast
Incredible views from our balcony. Very family friendly--playground in the front yard. Excellent restaurant serving local specialties on the premises. Room was a little small, but the balcony made it more like two rooms and gave the kids a place to play.
Meals were delicious and well priced. Manager/staff were always helpful. Would stay again. Found flights of stairs difficult due to hip replacements. Need to have preference for ground floor booking stated when booking.
The hotel is far from the grime and crowds of our urban itinerary. The rooms were immaculate, and the proprieters were very accommodating. The air was fresh; it was quiet and calm. We could hike a little and we were very close to Bagni Vignoni, Castiglioni d'orca and some roadside osterias. We tried several dishes and had mixed feelings about them. The pasta in rabbit sauce was excellent.
Excellent location, very clean building, excellent service by staff Rooms can be noisy - no soundproofing. This was only a problem on the last night when a noisy group of Amercians were talking loudly in the next room.
Very nice english speaking staff. Carparking on site, room with view over the valley is a must. Nice breakfast. Good pool (not heated) nice pool area with fabulous view. 5 mins walk to town centre. Well signposted and easy to find. Heated pool would have been nice and some sun loungers need replaced but that is a very minor point.
The parking lot was pretty scary for a standard transmission car!
Second visit to the hotel. Excellent location, great breakfast, good parking facilities, lovely swimming pool. Helpful staff No
the location was wonderful. the view of the tuscan countryside from our balconey was amazing. the staff was helpful
Location, the lovely breakfast terrace and the magnificent view!
Apiece oh heaven & the pool a bonus Limited parking but minor problem
Beautiful views and great location.
Excellent location. Excellent view from balcony.
Location and quality to price ratio.
