We arrived at the hotel and were confronted by the enchanting view of a villa situated on a hillside surrounded by grape and olive groves. The first impressions were excellent, if you discount the very rough track leading to the hotel, the receprionist spoke perfect English and was very efficient. Once booked in we were shown to our apartments, each one named after an Italian artist. Unfortunately from here on in things gradually went down hill. The rooms were very basic and sparsely furnished with nothing but a huge tree to be seen from the single window. The shower room, whilst being large enough, was again very basic and the fittings were anything but modern. Whilst we were led to believe that all rooms were air conditioned we were sorely disappointed. The ancient unit under the window in our bedroom failed to give out any cool air and their solution was to provide us with a table top fan! Other faults found included the lack of chambermaid service, the beds were never made and I am certain that neither the bedroom nor bathroom was ever cleaned during our 4 night stay. Breakfast was the only meal served on site, when we returned from a long days sightseeing we then had to drive out again to find an evening meal. The bar was a joke, it was poorly stocked, over priced and run on a help yourself honesty basis, it closed when the pool closed at about 7 o'clock in the evening not to open again until the following morning. If it had not been for the fantastic weather, the delights of Sienna, Florence and Pisa and the beautiful surroundings this holiday would have been a disaster. How the proprietors can describe this venue as a hotel is beyond me, it is more like a self catering facility without anywhere to prepare food. Needless to say I shall not be returning to the Hotel Belvedere.
