On arrival and throughout our stay we were looked after superbly by the reception staff and manager with help planning our trips. All other staff were also excellent. Our double room with balcony in the new part of the hotel had 2 very comfortable queen beds and an excellent bathroom. However the room lacked the extra touches;no tea/coffee making facilities...

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon and could not have asked for anything more. On arrival we were greeted warmly and congratulated on our recent nuptials, before being shown to a room in the older, original part of the complex, as it was more romantic. The room offered a jacuzzi bath and a stunning view of San Gimignano from... More

We are probably a bit biased in review terms as we spent almost out entire three days here lounging around the spa, which was heaven. Book treatments before you arrive or as soon as you arrive and spend as much time as you have in the spa. Rooms were fine but nothing too special. Views are lovely though we didn't... More

Lovely hotel, lovely staff. Terrific location. Staff told us how to get in and out of San Gimingano and where to park and did the same for a day trip to Sienna. Restaurant service was terrific and breakfast was lovely. Not sure about dinner menu but good wine recommendations!

This hotel was the perfect place to relax after a busy week touring Florence. It is perched on a hill just outside San Gimignano, thus enjoying the coolness and tranquility of the Tuscan countryside.
