“Stunning vista from hotel”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Rooms have wonderful view of the surrounding area. Pool area is outstanding. Staff were helpful and pleasant to deal with. Walk to the town site would be a challenge for people with walking difficulties, while not far it is steep. Breakfast was good but not inexpensive.

Room Tip: Over looking the pool

A delightful Hotel with excellent friendly service, food and facilities.The swimming pool is a good size and allows you to swim rather than just splash.The evening menu was rather limited to either fish or meat and the starter and pudding could not be varied from the set meat or fish menu. The food was good especially when served on the patio overlooking the surrounding countryside Situated in beautiful countryside at the outskirts of a medieval hilltop town with plenty to see and do.its an uphill walk of 15 minutes or a bus ride from just outside the hotel Commutable to other stunning towns. Free WIFI. We really enjoyed our stay there.we were part of a group and therefore asked to eat at a fixed time, this didn't spoil our enjoyment. A lovely family run hotel, the owner came round with baskets of freshly picked cherries and invited us to try them.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the rear of the hotel

This was a pretty place in a quite location with stunning views of the local area. The pool was clean and they have a large terrace where you can have a drink or dine at ,lunch and evening.

The staff seemed very tired and over worked, which was a shame as they were friendly when we chatted to them - just too tired!

There is a 15 minute walk to the centre of Volterra, which is the best place to be to eat in the evening as the town has a lovely atmosphere.

The rooms were quite small - but adequate and the ground floor rooms have a small patio overlooking the pool.

Dear Leopards_cheetahs,
thanks for your review, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay.
During the summer there is a lot of work and it happens that some days the waiters are a bit tired, but now the staff is increased so everything goes better for them too. In any case, we are lucky and proud to have a staff so good!

We stayed at this hotel from June 22-26 as part of Riveria Group booking. Good size, spotlessly clean room with air conditioning, which we used as weather was hot.We enjoyed all the dinners which were well served, a mixture of Italian and international. All were hot and serving arrangments were well organised to such a large group plus non-group guests.We had breakfast on the terrace. Drinks are expensive however.Pool was excellent with plenty of sunbeds and fluffy towels. View from terrace of Tuscan countryside is superb.Both lovely places to relax. Staff friendly and efficient. There is also a jacuzzi, sauna and indoor lounge which we did not have cause to use.15 minute steep walk to lovely town of Volterra(short cut don't walk along the road) but there is a bus which goes every hour in the daytime if walking is difficult for you.

Room Tip: Ask for room with view of pool and countryside or ground floor with a patio.

We stayed here as part of a Riviera travel experience of Tuscany. The hotel is situated in the hills of Volterra, giving lots of absolutely stunning views.

The rooms were spacious, clean, tidy and comfy. They had two lifts to be used as well as stairs if wanted.

We stayed on a half board basis.
The breakfast started at half seven. To me this means all food should be out by half seven, however, eggs, sausage and croissants sometimes did not come out until we were half way through eating. Start breakfast at eight if you cannot get stuff ready in time! Also we felt the choice very limited, there was no bacon, small cakes, only two choices of cereal, no waffles, pancakes or range of breads. For a four star hotel I feel the choice was too limited. Although, I did enjoy what I ate!
Ate tea time, we had to order the evening before. However, you only had two choices, being either meat or fish. I cannot eat fish because I am allergic, meaning I had to have the meat dish. Luckily most of the time I liked the choices, as I am not a fussy eater. For others, especially with children this may have been a problem.
Also, as we were with Riviera they asked us to come to tea at a specific time. It was really too late for me to eat and would have enjoyed it more with an earlier time.

The pool area was good and clean. No need to get up at 6 to reserve a sunbed!

All in all a good hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the ground floor, as this means a disabled room that has not got a proper show...

Dear emma s,
thank you for your review.
Eggs, sausage and croissants for breakfast are freshly prepared so that they are always hot, I am sorry you had to wait for them.
Anyway I am pleased that in spite of some details you have spent a nice holiday at our hotel.

Pleasant enough hotel. It is well worth paying a little extra to get a room with a terrace. Fair sized room. If you like a pool this one is lovely. very big with loads of sunbeds and is very quiet in the daytime as most guests are touring. While we were there there were a couple of coach parties but it was not a problem. The hotel is ideally situated for the lovely town of Volterra, although it is a steep climb up. Very friendly pleasant staff, especially a really smiley one called Valerina. The food is OK and the views are great. Loads of parking. The owner and his family are often there an he was very nice. On the downside it was 30 to 40 euros more than the last hotel we stayed in which was better so that makes it a bit pricy.
