Borgo il Melone is a refurbished former villa paying great attention to the ambience of its surrounding estate. We were very fortunate to receive an upgrade to one of the ground floor rooms with a separate enclosed patio, replete with table and chairs. The following is a recounting of the hotel's amenities. Staff: Very attentive and accommodating. They printed out... More

The location for our touring the area was ideal. The staff were great, helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good, but would not recommend the upstairs restaurant where we had one dinner. It was disappointing. The grounds are expansive and well kept.

We travelled around for a while in Tuscany and in general booked a room for the night just shortly before. In this case we ended up in Borge il Melone, which turned out to be a beautiful hotel with very nice rooms, excellent service and great breakfast. Even the recommended restaurant for the night tuned out to be really nice.... More

We arrived in Cortona with no hotel reservations, and picked out Borgo il Melone as one of three likely choices. Beautiful property below the town center. We were warmly greeted, and shown a selection of rooms, all of which were very nice. Staff gave us a map and helpful info regarding parking for our trip into the town. The breakfast... More

We stayed for two nights at the Borgo il Melone in one of the two bedroom, two bathroom family suites. The suite was spacious and comfortable and the surrounding garden and pool were very attractive. The location is ideal for exploring Cortona and surroundings, including the Etruscan tombs of Sodo which are very close to the hotel. The staff were... More

Had a wonderful 4 night break at Il Melone and even upgraded to a suite. The setting is just beautiful, the grounds and pool are stunning and the staff are all wonderful EXCEPT and this is a big except, for the owner of the restaurant, Christiano. We had a terrible meal here and did complain about our Pici pasta and... More

The staffs are very kind and helpful. Everybody smile and do everything for the good feeling. The location is quiet and relaxed, true Toscanas place. The junior suit is big and perfect for a family with four people, but a bit puritan. We had stayed there a cold and rainy night and weren't any warmer and plus blanket over the... More

Difficult one to review. There was nothing that we found particularly wrong with the hotel. Had a very warm welcome upon arrival to perhaps we picked the wrong room type. We had a junior suite which actually turned out to be an apartment for a family but with the kitchen area locked out. So were left with a very large... More

Had a lovely stay at this hotel outside Cortona. Grounds and pool are wonderful and all the staff were always very friendly with a ready smile. Location is perfect for exploring Cortona and surrounding towns. Very nice room. Only thing stopping a 5 star review is the lack of a bar in the day, particularly around the pool. Having said...
