I can see opinions vary markedly in some of the other Reviews and I would certainly concur about the appalling Wifi. The Hotel must improve this quickly, because it is an imperative for most visitors. We were upgraded on arrival and given a lovely room. No complaints there. It was clean, spacious and quiet. Bathroom a bit gloomy, but that's... More

I was so disappointed by service in this luxurious and just beautiful property, it spoiled a good part of the stay. Too bad because the location and rooms deserve 5 stars ratings. Prices are very high, but that would not be a flaw in itself, if the service had been just appropriate. We were part of a large group, hosting... More

I booked a special package including a private window for the August Palio's horse race. Not cheap but the experience worth every euro of the price... A part of the Palio (unforgettable) and experience organized by the hotel, I absolutely recommend this property! It's the ideal place to unwind. The pools facing the ancient part of the borgo invites you... More

I spent a short break at this resort the first week of August with my girlfriend. This location is absolutely amazing! Nested in the countryside, it is quiet and indulge serenity all the day. Rooms are big, with wonderful beds and a fantastic bathroom with rain shower. We had also a double view on the borgo square and surrounding vineyards.... More

The only good thing is Cantrada ......Gordon Ramsey's restaurant. Overpriced , with not so clean rooms, very poor breakfast, poor, poor wifi, not so good service ....I don't understand how Gordon Ramsey made a restaurant in this place! We spend three nights there but we regret every penny.

The place is amazing, set in a renovated monastery in the middle of nowhere but located only 30 minutes away from many cultural must-visit places in Tuscany. Spread across several buildings, Castel Monastero manages to maintain a feeling of cozyness despite a probably rather large number of rooms. 3 beautiful pools can accomodate the needs of smaller children and more...

I just spend a weekend at this beautiful property. Although the hotel grounds are impecable, the service is hardly hospitable or welcoming. The Cantina Restaurant has mediocre food (not pricey though) but terrible service; when I booked the hotel over the phone, they failed to mention the fine dining Gordon Ramsay restaurant would be closed for private events. So no... More

We stayed for 3 nights in July 2015. It was an amazing experience and one of the best hotels we have stayed so far. The hotel itself is very beautiful and peaceful. Our room had a lovely view of the main square as well as the hills and vineyards surrounding the old monastery. The hotel stuff are very helpful, friendly... More

To put it simply-- we got there and were put in a room that was electrically challenged-- meaning that none of the lights worked unless you manually shut them. All the remotes were damaged by the room being hit by lightening-- and the remote to the television didn't work-- so why would they put anyone in that room?!?! One of... More

Medieval monastery refurbished into a beautiful hotel Food, wine and service in the restaurant was good - we preferred La Cantina (Italian) The surrounding is very quiet and beautiful. Location is a bit far from historical places. hotel is well suited for a romantic escape or country side walking / horse riding in Tuscany
