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. Costanza was fantastic. Obviously, coming from the UK we were a bit nervous about getting married abroad, but thank god she was there! The staff were... More

Came here and returned with 13 girlfriends to celebrate my 30th and a friend's 40th Birthday. I had got married here the year before and guests were so impressed that we couldn't think of a better place for us all to celebrate an important milestone. We are planning a 2015 reunion soon and have plans to return here year after... More

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

This hurts: the staff at Il Melone were terrific, so one naturally wants to give a great review, but the property was not great. We had a huge apartment: three bedrooms, two full baths and 2 half baths; would easily sleep 8. The setting is great. Real Italian families live there, and there is a traditional hotel, and a series... More

Our experience at Borgo Il Melone was amazing. We had a lovely room with a private patio overlooking the stunning grounds. The location was perfect. Close enough to town for dining and shopping but far enough to feel like we stayed in the tuscan countryside. The staff are amazing.
