The uniqueness and cleanliness, the subtle service and warmth. Our room/bathroom was an absolute delight.
The hotel staff is extremely professional. The rooms are excellent and well taken care of. This is a really pleasant and comfortable town to stay in.
Friendly staff and excellent facilities. Restaurant outstanding No negative comments
The restaurant is the high point, especially the wines!! The shower booth was clogged, so the water overflowed, wetting all the floor.
Luxury hotel with all facilities to stay for some days to explore Umbria. Good quality restaurant for dinner Room with seperate sitting room spacious with rather poor decoration. Shutters kept close as outside view poor (escape stairs on one side and small terras with high hedges on other side). For longer stays restaurant menu could be improved by proposing set menu changing daily or adding daily specials.
I have been here several times and would come again. Everything is wonderful None!
As we arrived at the hotel they gave us an upgrate which was very kind. We got a beautiful room upstairs which overlooked the whole property and mountains of Umbria. The room was big and romantic.The restaurant was very nice and they had lovely food well prepared. The spa was also nice. As the season was over you could feel this at the pool although the weather one day was 24 degrees there were no pillows in the garden beds and chairs. There was a towel in the garden for four days and no one from the staff picked it up. Also the bar was unattended, we waited one hour before somebody showed up although we asked for it several times.
Very well situated at 10 km from Perugia in lovely suroundings. Recently refurbished and very comfortable. The promised fitness room was not yet ready. Use of Spa (also Sauna and Hammam) is against additional cost.
A wonderful place, beautiful grounds, comfortable and tasteful room, cheerful and helpful staff, delicious food. We had a great 3 days, and would definately go back. .
Overall design, excellent dinner in hotel restaurant Pantagruel, very good breakfast, hotel park organized like the botanic garden and in-door swimming pool. Not clear opening hours of wellness centrum, especially in the morning we needed to find somebody to open it.
Very lovely hotel, beautiful gardens, comfy rooms, easy parking, incredible breakfast and an excellent restaurant for dinner. a little further from Perugia than I originally imagined...
A pleasent hotel with great food and good service
Friendly service with a willingness to please. We had an enjoyable and unforgettable dinner experience in the hotel. Close to the motorway without noise problems. We stayed in the off-season and got excellent value for money!
Clean hotel with helpful staff and good food in restaurant. Perugia is perfect central spot to explorer umbria. This hotel is right next to the main road interchanges so provides quick access to getting out and about if your planning to drive/explore the area. The noise from nearby road. Restaurant can be shut (but dont let it put you off - there's good (underground) pizzeria within 5 mins walk).
A nice family feel to the place and I felt safe even although I was travelling and staying alone
large swimming pool and very quiet at most places, very kind reception Not yeady ready. Working people. No drinks available near the swimming pool (1.2 km) and to drink something was not very exciting in the hotel.
The place of the hotel is quite pleasant notwithstanding some details of an industrial landscape around. The design is rather stylish, a nice combination of rustic and modern styles. Overall nice impression and a good rest. The kitchen in the restaurant is simple but fine. stayed only one day visiting Assisi.To my opinion the territory is rather big and it would be nice to animate it somehow, otherwise the place looks deserted. The personnel behaves a little bit arrogant and seems to be enjoying the place of their job, not catering to guests. And their uniform looks three stars and business hotel which does not correspond to the implied atmosphere of the place... Generally the hotel is just new and it might take time to orchestrate the work of everything. Would be nice to provide a shuttle bus service once a day (go and back ) at least to St. Maria Novella from where it is easier to get a connection to Assisi case there are some travellers who wish to go around and they are without a car.
Great place for rest and enjoying the nature, ideal starting point for exploring not only Assisi but other Umbrian towns (Perugia, Terni, Gubbio, Lago Trasimeno… could be reached in half an hour or at most in an hour by car). It’s really beautiful resort, with nice hotel and stylish cottages. Nice swimming pool, but without stairs to go in/out – very inconvenient. The hotel is not easy to find. There were no signs directing you to the hotel if you coming from St. Maria degli Angeli.
Excellent coutnry location outside of the town of Assisi but with a beautiful view of Assisi. Well furnished new resort hotel with good facilities.
It locates in the country side (very quiet place), and also not too far to the town(Santa Maria degli Angeli) and high way. Frendly stuff. Room and bath room are very clean and confortable. Nothing
Lovely rooms; staff was indifferent; breakfast good No newspaper in English; staff was not very helpful;
very good breakfast and use of internet,open space in main area to meet business appointments. the restaurant was closed all nights I was there,and after asking how close the nearest restaurant was I was told only 2kl towards town 6kl later we found a restaurant. the shower leaked water under the tiles making bathroom floor wet
The location was stunning and so peaceful. We had a beautiful villa, not a single room, in amongst the vinyard with views of the hills and Assisi. It was wonderfully bucolic yet so convenient for touring Umbria. The resort manager was excellent - friendly, professional and generous. However, some of his stylish and rather gorgeous reception staff (initially at least) appeared aloof/unfriendly/unhelpful. Check in was a terse, "cold" and un-Italian affair. Our encounters "warmed" somewhat over the 8 days we were there but we never felt like "valued customers". This was not the case in the Restaurant or elsewhere around the resort - where staff blended professionalism with warmth and hospitality - where we flet welcome.
the hotel is brand new resort facility with nice, spacious room and breakfast is outstanding with fresh squeezed orange juice and exquisite espresso machine. even though it was high season, it was good deal for the money
The reception staff very helpful, clean, beautiful setting, views of assisi etc They said restaurant was fully booked so we had to dine in the breakfast room, the hotel was described as a resort hotel and yet there hardly seemed to be anyone in the hotel at all, we only saw about 8 other people the whole time, and the things offered in brochure all seemed to be shut.
The country setting was spectacular and the room was very modern with a great view. The restaurant was also very good and reasonably priced. The only unfortunate part was the weather, which did not allow us to use the swiming pool.
Landscape is unforgattable. To have dinner in the restaurant is a very good expirience.
Excellent facility, clean, well planned out, beautiful views of surrounding Umbrian countryside, lovely swimming pool. Food excellent, €32 per head (excluding wine) for dinner is not bad at all. Spa slightly expensive as are drinks and fitness suite (€15 per person per day) however there are only 3 exercise machines! Some Staff totally indifferent towards Guests, not really what you expect from a high quality hotel. If planning to dine outside Hotel you need a car, its quite far from any reasonable sized town.
Views were spectacular, beautiful location. Spa facilities very expensive. Lack of privacy on patio area.
A very pleasant and beautifully located hotel. Nice rooms and good service guarantee a pleasant stay. It is a very good resort close to Perugis, Assisi and many other beautiful places in Umbria.
a perfect view into the mountains !!! very relaxing stay
The most beautiful location, quiet, peaceful with good food and clean room. However the room was smaller than expected, compared with on-line photographs. It was like an average motel. There were no leaflets in the room to offer advice on facilities and local information such as walks etc. We had to ask. We also found the Spa prices were too high.
Great location and price-qualtiy ratio
Excellent service & quality of food in the restaurant Lack of detail in servicing the room.; toliet rolls are important!
Hotel was in nice surroundings with excellent facilities. Staff were professional and helpful. Room was comfortable and well equiped.
Everything. The room was lovely and the food at the restaurant was outstanding! No
The staff was fantastic, the hotel room was the most comfortable we've stayed at in Italy, and the restaurant was amazing. Maybe a little too expensive for us to return as often as we'd like to.
L'antico forziere is such a great place to stay, the staff is very friendly and speaks some english. The rooms are good sized, nice clean bathrooms. The Breakfast buffet is delicious. and very convienient in the morning. The one thing that outshined every other aspect is the resturant..definitely 5 star food being served for a 3 star price. Everything was just delicious, there was complementary Proseco, antipasta, and desert. I must say that to stay at the hotel and not eat there either for lunch or dinner during your stay, you are missing out on one of the best meals of your life! It is not your typical traditional Italian meal, it is gives a twist to the traditional meals....It is a must!
Everything! The food was fantastic. Our time there was the highlight of our vacation!
Our fifth visit, and I suspect not our last. Read the rfeviews on TripAdvisor as well. I agree with all of them except the one which does not give full marks.
Restarant and staff
The location is terrific for visiting Umbria - Perugia, Assissi, Todi, Montefalco - are all within easy reach. The setting is gorgeous and there are several comfortable public spaces, inside and out, for visiting or enjoying a glass of wine. The breakfast buffet is quite nice also. There are very few restaurants in the immediate town - Deruta. The hotel has a beautiful restaurant with an interesting menu, but most of us were fighting colds while we were there so we did not eat there.
the restaurant the cat
Very pleasant staff. A very good restaurant offering cuisine which shows a high level of skill and quality. This holel is just off the autostrada, so ambient noise levels outside are quite high, although the rooms are quiet. I think that guests choose to come here for the convenient connections to the autostrada in all directions to tour the region, rather than to sit for long periods relaxing by the pool. The high quality of the restaurant more than compensates for any concerns.
The beautiful surroundings, inside and out. The amazing staff...so helpful and sincere. The restaurant is not to be missed...presentation is awesome, service incredible and the food was delicious.
The location was excellent and the outside facilities (pool, riding stables) were very good. The room on the two latter nights in the apartment was well equipped although the bed was very unfomfortable and had seen better days. The map downloaded from Booking.com was completely wrong and showed the hotel nearly 20 miles north of where it actually was. We were checked in by the owners wife who disappeared on holiday 20 mins later. 4 hours later we were told that builders were moving into the main hotel and we would have to move to an apartment on the other side of the site (5kms away) for the nights 3 and 4 - but this was not mentioned when we checked in. The hotel was a long way from the nearest town and we were really forced to eat at the hotel rather than local restaurants which is our preference in Italy and the hotel food was average at best. We mentioned that my wife was vegetarian and were told this was OK but at no time was food without meat made available
lots of outdoor experience possibilities. the lower restaurant was more like eating at someone's house. the road access could be improved
Staff is doing more than they have to, especially Barbara who was always ready to help with information and suggestions. A bit futher away than desired, gravel road... but its a country house, so its understandabe.
The Swimming Pool The room /apartment was extremely dark. There was nowhere to sit outside on an evening which made it very uncomfortable heat wise as the kitchen area was also the dining and living area. There were few utensils and the cooker was outdated as well as being unsafe as one of the hobs kept going out although the gas was continuous. Did not meet expectations.
The staff were excellent and the food/service in the restuarant was exceptional It would have been nice to have had tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
the hotel staff were very helpful, friendly and very obliging they assisted me when i was unable to get a bus from deruta to perugia. the service, the location, the atmosphere was excellent. i can highly recommend hotel melody.
Very friendly staff
Hotel Melody is a good accomidation in the Deruta, Asissi area. Quite clean, comfortable and a good value for the price and area. Attached is a very nice bar on one side and a good restaurant on the other side. Plus, free parking right at the hotel's door.
