We stayed at beautiful Hotel Molino D'Era for three nights in May and loved the hotel, grounds, staff and restaurant. We had a lovely very spacious room with two windows overlooking the large back garden and patio. Everything was beautifully decorated, immaculate and one could see the love and care of the family run operation, headed by Irma and her staff. For people with a car, the location is perfect in the spectacular countryside with easy access to Volterra, San Gimignano and other wonderful hill towns in the picturesque and mountainous area of Tuscany. The family restaurant, popular with locals and tourists, was absolutely wonderful and we had the best dinners, reasonably priced, of our month long trip through Italy. Breakfast was also superb with a wide variety of items including juice, cereals, breads, pastries, meats, fresh fruit, cheeses, yogurts and each morning a fancy hot egg dish was included. The extensive, lush and lovingly cared for grounds, offer a wonderful respite in the afternoon after touring and one can enjoy reading or simply relaxing with a fine glass of wine on the patio. Irma and her staff offered us many suggestions on places to visit in the area. Hotel Molino D'Era was by far the nicest hotel of our recent trip to Italy and we recommend it with great enthusiasm. We will definitely return on future visits to Tuscany.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet location and had a lovely room in the back facing the extensive and beautiful grounds and patio. Room 38 was beautiful!

We loved Hotel Molino d'Era in Volterra, and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is family run with a passion for perfection. We were pleased to note that the locals frequent the bar and restaurant, which serves beautiful food at reasonable prices. The hotel is set in a lovely rural environment beside a river. The entire hotel feels spacious and light. The rooms are also spacious and nicely furnished. This was a great base to explore the beautiful nearby Tuscan towns of Volterra and San Gimignano, to name but two. There was really nothing about this place that we didn't like. We left there wanting to move to Tuscany! You would need to have a car to stay here, as it wasn't close to public transport.

Me and my husband stayed for 4 nights at this wonderful hotel. The rooms with air conditioning were clean and the beds ensured a good night sleep. It's location is right next to a road, but there is very little traffic, especially at night, so that didn't bother us.
Molin d'Era is also a restaurant with high quality food, and combined with one of the many great wines we had a wonderful dining experience. The fact that many locals eat there also says enough I think :-). Too bad we only stayed for 4 night, otherwise we would have tried everything on the menu. The breakfast was extended with fresh fruit, several kinds of cheese and Italian ham, freshly baked pastries and cappuccino’s prepared with love. The warm atmosphere that the personnel creates is truly exceptional. Thanks for the wonderful time we had!

We hadn't originally planned to stay in Volterra as part of our trip, we were just going to do a day trip. But due to us not liking our Siena B&B, we decided to stop in Volterra for the night on our way to Pisa so logged onto TA and searched for B&B's in Volterra and picked this one. This hotel was about a 10 min drive outside of Volterra, just at the bottom of the hill so pretty good location. The room was nice, clean and tidy and a good size. Bed was comfy, the only downside was that the traffic noise was quite loud outside as it's on a main road, but this quietened as it got later enough for us to get to sleep! The breakfast was average, usual pastries and james etc. I found this hotel a good stopping point, a nice average hotel - but get the feeling it's been rated so highly because of the restaurant as that's what most of the comments seem to refer to. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed the night we stayed there so didn't get to try it so can't comment. I'd recommend this hotel to people as it's a good base for visiting Volterra.
