I stayed at the Hotel Palazzuolo in San Quirico on a walking holiday in May 2012. The hotel is just a ten minute walk away from the beautiful mediaeval centre of San Quirico, but feels as though it is out in the country. The views from the terrace over the swimming pool to the hill top town of Montalcino are superb.
The rooms are not spectacular, but they are comfortable and the bathrooms have been upgraded since I was last there. I slept well although some lighter sleeping companions were disturbed by local dogs barking into the night.
The food previously was OK, but with a new chef in place things were really good, with authentic Tuscan fare, nicely presented. The wine list is lengthy, but you can't do better than the local Orcia DOC wines produced by the family that own the hotel - the Simonelli's. There is a decent choice at the buffet breakfast, including fresh fruit, but some real fruit juice rather than diluted concentrate would have been welcomed.
Claudia and Anna on reception were really efficient and did all they could to look after the group I was with. Things in the restaurant sometimes got a bit busy when there were other groups staying, but service was always cheerful.
All in all, a comfortable relaxing stay - and the walking in the area is brilliant.
