The hotel is modern and well situated to visit Volterra, although be prepared for a 15 minutes walk up hill from the hotel.
The reception staff were efficient and friendly, and our room was a good size, clean and comfortable. The views from our hotel room and from the hotel terrace are of rolling tuscan hills - this is the best feature of the hotel.
Breakfast buffet is served in the breakfast room, on the terrace and is extensive and well stocked, and the waiting staff were friendly.
There is a small sauna, jacuzzi and jet shower, and the infinity pool has a good choice of loungers and chairs.
The hotel is let down by its restaurant, which we felt was pretentious (relying possibly on the views from the terrace for its reputation?). The wine list while long was over priced (min. €25 for a bottle), and having eaten at other Tuscan hotel restaurants in the previous week we knew that there are very good value wines available. The hotel does have a house wine if you ask - this is not listed on the wine list. We stayed half board and felt that the special "half board menu" and the service given to half board guests was not to the standard that we had experienced elsewhere in the region. So would recommend the hotel on a B&B basis only.More
