This is a beautiful hotel with gracious staff and a wonderful location. My friend and I were part of a 40 person tour group and they made each and every one of us feel special. We had a free day which we spent in the town courtesy of a taxi arranged for us at the front desk. Elegantly appointed dining... More

Luigi and his staff made our stay particularly enjoyable. I booked this hotel to avail of a special offer. On arrival we were treated to complimentary prosecco. The staff were exceptional. Great restaurant.

Italy at its best. Subtle pleasure in an atmosphere of elegant ease. A competent and friendly staff, a treasured chef, a complex and reliable wine list. The hotel is on a height, looking onto a Tuscan scenery, straight out of famed Renaissance paintings. The breath-taking view (eastwards) is enjoyable also from the restaurant windows, misty and softly hued in the... More

One of our favorite places on our three week vacation in Europe. The hotels location is awesome. Close to wineries and the cute city. The rooms and property were very clean. Great restuarants! Big Breakfast selection. Staff and Manager were a pleasure. Views are spectacular. Would definitely return.

Just returned from a 3 night stay. Incredibly nice hotel outside San Gimignano. Spectacular views to be had from the second floor rooms. Unbelievably beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany. Literally looked like the paintings you see. Meals were fabulous. Did not get a chance to use the spa because we were running but it looked quite nice as well.

We visited this amazing area March 9 2015. Words cannot express the hospitality by the hotel manager Luigi Zaccardi and the staff across the board. From housekeeping to the restaurant it was spot on. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was flawless. Provided us insight and direction to neighboring towns and events. The location is perfect.... More

Despite great reviews we found the hotel rather characterless. The style is very formatted and chain like, lacking the local character that most hotels in the region have. The decor is also in need of refreshing, paint peeling off the base of the columns in the restaurant and in the spa where the metalwork and fittings are also corroding. The... More
