“Such character and I am not just talking about the hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I have visited La locanda del capitano on numerous occasions, sometimes taking a detour off the road south just to have lunch! The host and very much star of the show is Giancarlo, with his obvious passion for his craft is what has transformed this beautiful little hotel and restaurant in to somewhere exceptional!

Montone is a charming hill town and if you get a room on the top floor you will be rewarded with far reaching views over the Umbrian countryside. A few steps away from the front door Giancarlo has opened a small rustic restaurant and shop selling traditional foods and gifts for the home. Here you can enjoy a lighter bite in less formal surroundings.

The hotel is lovingly cared for, although there is no air-con they will supply you with a fan. All in all a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Top floor offers the best views

The welcome is more like arriving at a friends house. Giancarlo and his wife, Carmen, together with their friendly and efficient staff offer a stress free and relaxing stay in their charming and character filled hotel. Nothing is too much trouble and they are more like family than hoteliers. Nestling in the quiet narrow streets of beautiful Montone it was the perfect base for a family wedding. A home from home. Excellent.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

This was in my opinion not a 5 star hotel by any means. The food was excellent - definitely worth 4 stars and the little town of Montone is charming and relatively free of the hoards of tourists. The hotel is nice, but simple. The breakfast is mediocre at best and the lack of tatse in the interior is everywhere (but who cares because that is not what you come here for). Being close to the square where it all happens, it can get quite noisy if you want to go to sleep before midnight and have a room on the street. To sum it up: great food in a charming little town, relatively untouched by tourism.

Dear Sir,
our is not a 5 star hotel and we never had a claim to be.
Thank you for your words of appreciation on Montone and on our food, but we don't understand the criticisen on brekfast, usually well apreciated by our customers, italians and foreigners, as it also offers local and homemade products.
Regarding the noisy square we finally underline that Locanda del Capitano is not an hotel in the countryside but is a small, cute hotel in the heart of a small Medieval village where the transit of cars is not permitted but where the small central square is still a point of aggregation for its inhabitants and tourists: is there that people meet, talks, jokes and the children are free to plag, especially on summer evenings (for a long time to come, we hope!...).

La Locanda del Capitano is a beautiful place, run with flair, and care! The restaurant (servings on the terrace in the warm weather) is wonderful. The hotel and restaurant are a total surprise. Our room had windows on both walls, one set faced a courtyard terrace, and the main window faced a set of stairs, and a small courtyard.

What a fun place to stay! The village is small and enchanting. The owners of the hotel are wonderful. Giancarlo is quite a showman and an excellent chef--dinner was superb. I figured out that my room was outfitted as a handicapped room. There was a ramp at the doorway and the bathroom was large and would clearly be accessible to someone in a wheelchair. I'm not handicapped but I appreciated that the hotel had those provisions for people who are. I would definitely recommend this place to folks who enjoy getting a little way off the beaten path.

Wonderful place, Montone and "La Locanda del Capitano are the best you can find in Umbria and for sure one of the most beautiful places in Italy.
The "locanda" is perfect, the Chef Giancarlo Polito is the number 1.
This is one of the places to visit. Excellent.

La Locando del Capitano is a magical place in the utterly captivating hill town of Montone. We enjoyed 5 wonderful days here in mid April, with hosts Giancarlo and Carmen and their welcoming team. The accommodation was very comfortable and cosy, with wonderful views over the town and the countryside. The dining was superb. A most memorable experience and one we hope to repeat.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms provide wonderful views of the countryside.
