My wife and I stayed here for four nights in mid September. The drive up to the hotel is fine, just take it easy. The setting is beautiful, the view from the pool area spectacular. The staff are helpful and do their level best to make your stay the best it can be. The buildings are made from local stone and absolutely in keeping with what you would expect of an old Umbrian inn, especially the dining room and patio dining area.
Our room was majus, just off the dining terrace. The room is good sized and well furnished with an adequate bathroom. However, there are no windows because the room is a (well) converted cellar and to keep it cool requires the air conditioner to be running continuously. It would have been nice to open a window in such a beautiful old building.
Our only complaint with the hotel is the lack of attention to detail. Our minibar fridge did not work so we had no cold drinks available. One could say "so what"' but with an outside temperature of 34 and no hotel bar, a cold drink would have been good at times. The hotel we unable to fix the fridge or swap it over, we missed out on a drink - they missed out on the minibar profit. On our penultimate day our room wasn't made up at 1700 in the evening and we had to point this out to them. They attended immediately and we then noticed they had left a set of towels that were dirty, as if they,d been on the floor for a time. We asked them to change them which they did. Why not check and give us clean towels the first time? Finally the bed in Majus is just awful. It's two single, cast iron framed beds pushed together. There is an iron bar that runs down between the two beds that stops you venturing into your partners half and if you aren't careful you end up bruised. A triumph or style over practicality.
The meals and wine are excellent and good value for money.
Get the detail right and this could be a truly great hotel to spend a few restful days.
