We stayed here 4 nights as a treat - we love Montalcino and wanted to revisit it, while staying somewhere special. On check in we were told we had been upgraded, but I couldn't see how our upgraded suite was better than that which had been described at our booking, as the only view was from the bathroom. I mentiioned my disappoitment the next day - the blurb says a view from every room - and I was shifted to a far superior suite, having been happy to accept a temeramental door lock and the daily adminstrations to the steps to the terrace of the flock of swifts that circle the castle! This shift made our stay as it was to be the highlight of our 5 week trip. We ate in the restaurant each night - excellent food, but we would have liked it if each night there had been a special to provide a bit of variety. Good wine list but very overpriced.
