We spent an afternoon just lounging at the beautiful pool enjoying a great view of Cortona up on the hill. We stayed in the Locanda, not the apartments, and the room was basic, but large and very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful. The staff is very helpful. It's down the hill a bit from the main town; not far, but... More

We travelled all over Italy before settling here for the week, so we had plenty of stays in other accommodation. Our 12 year old son had a room and en-suite of his own, which was a nice surprise. The setting is superb and Cortona (you need transport to get there) is not far away but is certainly worth a visit... More

Unfortunately the hotel was booked and we could not extend our stay. We won't make that mistake again. Had intended for a 2 day, one night Cortona day trip from Florence and we just fell in love with this place. The grounds, the room (we had a 2 bdrm suite), the staff, the pool... Glorious. 1 mile walk from train... More

We've just had a lovely 4 night stay at this hotel, junior suite room was huge and very clean. Pool was lovely, our daughter loved it. We only have one minor complaint, the breakfast was pretty poor with not an awful lot of choice. And the girls who worked in the breakfast area, one in particular, were not very friendly,... More

This was the 5th time we've visit Il Melone. (Over 10 years) and again it was fantastic. Very friendly staff. Helpful and kind. Fantastic pool. It's big and clean and very peaceful. Never too crowded. Even in high season. Breakfast is perfect. Fresh fruit and lovely cheese and wonderful coffee for me. The children loved it. Every year the restaurant... More

This hotel doesn't deserve its 4 stars: - the reception is closed between midnight and 7 am - the description of the room is inappropriate (eg. see attached "garden view") - tiny, shabby bathroom, washed out towels Moreover: - zero charm - no mosquito net on the windows - staff is hardly friendly nor helpful

We stayed here for another week as we did last year. This time in another apartment. This year they placed airconditioning in every apartment, very good! The bed in this apartment was not good and after complaining no real solution provided, otherwise it would be 5 stars. Pool is great again. As is the breakfast

Stayed at the Borgo il Melone for 3 nights in August, what a beautiful setting and such a relaxing atmosphere....the grounds and pool area are pristine, the staff are very welcoming and friendly. We ate in the Restaurant on our first night and although the menu is limited, all dishes were excellent. The Hotel is situated about 5 minutes from... More

This is a delightful hotel on the outskirts of Cortona before the climb up the winding roads to the town centre. The place is beautifully clean, the reception was extremely well run and the staff could not have been more helpful. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well maintained and serviced. The pool was large, clean and with good facilities... More

Borgo il Melone is beautiful! Located in the tuscan country side, a stone's throw away from Cortona (10 minute drive). Travelling with a group of 8 we booked 2 executive suites and no one was disappointed. The "rooms" were actually large villas, one which was spread out over 2 stories which could have housed us all. The grounds are beautiful,... More
