We stayed for 8 nights at this hotel from the 15th July 2013. everything about it is top class. First of all the staff speak excellent English and are most helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, even getting directions, booking taxis and other restaurants, arranging for early departures, you name it. Secondly the double glazed room we stayed in was very comfortable and despite the heat wave the Air conditioning kept the temperature in the room down so we could sleep. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was well equipped. Overall the condition of the room was well maintained and everything was in good working order. The attached restaurant was excellent for evening meals with everything cooked to order. Continental breakfasts were available from 7:30 just outside the reception area and we were supplied with fresh ham, cheeses, fruits and pastries, etc together with great coffee. There is plenty of parking space in the beautiful and well maintained gardens. The large pool and associated area is great for adults and children alike. It is a quiet location, albeit just off the main road but because it is a little distant for the old town of Cortona which gets crowded in the summer, visitors will not have much trouble with hoards of tourists. It the reader is intending to visit the attractions of the area and tour my tip would be to visit earlier than July or later than August when is is less hot.
