You should choose this hotel for it's architecture, location and the restaurant the re-opened on site (different business from the hotel itself). It has it's distinct personality on a superb setting - this is NOT the place you'll be referring to as "some hotel I've slept in". Important - it comes with a friendly, helping well trained staff.

From the moment you pull into the beautiful drive way you feel and know that you are in Tuscany. One little warning make sure you have the email instructions from the hotel on how to find the place. It's pretty tricky, GPS in the car and on my cell phone, give up pull over and ask someone. It's on the... More

Thanks Dear Guest, actually the gps doesn't give the right information and that's why we always send an email with much easier directions to get here. About the rest we are glad you had a nice experience at Borgo il Melone and we think that we will meet again .... soon in Cortona More

Our favourite place we stayed at during our 9-day trip to Tuscany. Feels more like a home than a hotel. The staff were kind and our room was immaculately clean. Breakfast was superb with a great choice of meats, cake, bread and lots more. Amazingly was actually cheaper than most other stays that were of far lesser quality. Highly recommended!

We arrived at Borgo il Melone after a two hour flight from London and were immediately shown to a nice, big room. There were two bedrooms, a small lounge and two bathrooms. We fell in love with it after a day! The evening restaurant could've been better but it was OK. The breakfast is a buffet and it's a decent... More

Borgo Il Melone is an amazing property and we loved our stay here. Our room was huge and comfortable. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and had a great understanding of english.

Recently stayed at the Borgo Melone in Cortona. It's been refurbished and is lovely although the room we were in was a bit small. The bed was very uncomfortable and a new mattress is certainly required in room, #1. Having said that, the room was clean and we had a fairly large bathroom with a shower which we specifically requested.... More

Tired from working and traveling from one city to the next while giving workshops, we arrived late one night at Borgo il Melone in pitch black (so we didn't see the exquisite landscape until morning) and went directly to bed. I forgot to get an extra key to the room so when I went out for a smoke the automatic... More

Blimey, where has the time gone! I got married here in July 2014. We had the whole of Il Melone to ourselves. Filled it with family and friends who all stayed for different durations.

We stayed here for one night in what must be shoulder or more of a quiet season, so the main restaurant wasn't open and the borgo felt quite empty. However, the service by front of staff was very professional and helpful, the pool is just stunning and a great place to hang out, looking up the hill to old cortina... More
