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

Il Melone is a perfect place for couples (with or without children). Stay besides a 2,500 years-old' city, in a stone built hotel, with a wonderful swimming pool, calm environment and fantastic food... It's fantastic! (Ah! You can spend some minutes with the owner "Carlo" to learn interesting facts about the history of the hotel and the city). Everyone speaks... More

Borgo il Melone is a beautiful hotel just outside Cortona - you can drive up to the old town and be parked in about 5 minutes. It's also in a good location to quickly get on to the major roads around Tuscany and Umbria. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and create a very good first impression when you... More

This is a great place to stay for families. Not too many people (not possible because it is not a huge resort) and great accommodations with plenty of room and great air conditioning! The service of the rooms is great and there is an average restaurant on site but a very cool town nearby that has some great restaurants and... More

I don't know where to start! Driving up to the hotel from the road is breathtaking, such beautiful buildings, flowers, grounds and scents. Warm welcome at reception, we were shown to our room and given breakfast info. Room was lovely, tiled floors, big beams on ceiling, comfy bed. There is air con but it wasn't really doing the job, however... More

What a huge disappointment! Restaurant was the worst ever, unfriendly staff + bad quality of the food. Almost never open. We were literally chased away when we wanted to drink a coffee! Baby bed was dirty and broken + unfresh sheets. Bed and sheets were changed after making complaint. Door bathroom was broken (see pic). Bathroom in general was total... More

Stunning grounds, comfortable accommodations supported with high quality amenities, extensive breakfast and beautiful swimming facilities. Vincenzo and staff did not leave our experience to only a brief welcome orientation but carefully managed our stay with each interaction in a professional, warm and genuine manner. True hospitality - a rare find in today's low touch service environments. Will recommend to friends... More
