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.
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.
Superb site and kitchen
the views were incredible the restaurant was great for breakfast, good for dinner
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.
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.
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..
surrounding environment, nice views, comfortable rooms
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.
