Staed here for a night. The girl who checked us in was very nice but she seemed quite busy as she was also serving the restaurant of the b&b. Room was quite hot and couldn't open the windows and no fans. Bfast was fine, nothing special. Was served by the same girl who checked us in and eventually checked as... More

My Wife and I stayed one night, the bed was clean and comfortable, tea and coffee making facilities are provided, there was a new wardrobe in the room, but no hangers, the carpet was badly stained, there was no hot water in the shower room. WiFi is advertised, and although we could log in, the signal was so weak it... More

My husband and I stayed at Montis two nights. The room was very nicely decorated, big bed with fresh and clean bedlinen. That is the best decoration that I have never seen in any hotel/b&b. Beautiful furniture, very rustic but in good confition. But I think there are a few things that must be considered: Very nice touch the coffee... More

This B&B is a pretty average one at best. We had a one night stay in the superior room - which I think only went by this name due to the size. First impressions are that the decor is nice and the room is very spacious. On closer inspection, things really weren't not practical. The desk with the tea &... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lengthy review. However a number of the issues raised could have been dealt with had you spoken with myself or a member of staff at the time. Your reservation for our Superior Room was at a reduced rate and has always been very popular with our guests. I can only... More

Well what can I say, as usual I had an absolutely delightful stay. A new room for me this time, number 1. Another well decorated room, someone has good taste!
