Positive: The service was nice and the staff helpful. Negative: The suite with our own bath and mini-kitchen looked nice, but was not clean, smelled terrible after 1 day and the smell did not disappear, reached out luggage and clothes. The shower couldn`t keep the water warm more than ca 4 min. The brickwalls in the room had some nasty... More

Had a great holiday in Monte Castello di Vibio. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The manager Tizianna was brilliant, she always went out of her way to help. We also had a few days in the sister hotel (The Sport) in Gubbio, Pepe the manager was equally as helpful and friendly. The food in both hotels was excellent.... More

I booked this as an offer through FleetwayTravel and to be honest did little research, so it could have been disastrous. The hotel is a converted medieval castle set on a hilltop in an lovely town.. There is little to do in the town itself although the theatre is worth a visit. The view from our hotel bedroom were spectacular... More

We stayed here for a few days in September and whilst it is true that some of the hotel rooms need updating,(especially the showers), the overall experience was lovely and the service of the staff was faultless. We enjoyed our cookery lesson and would definitely recommend this hotel to somebody looking for a quiet place to relax. To enjoy the... More

We booked up this hotel with Broadway Travel as part of a package which included flights and car hire . Since the price was very reasonable and we had not heard of the place we were bracing ourselves for a bit of a let down. How wrong could we have been! The hotel was truly enchanting - a restored medieval... More

I can do no more than echo an earlier review entitled Peaceful Retreat. This hotel is just that. Like the earlier reviewer, our room was in the villa 10 minutes' walk from the main hotel, near the pool (which is closed at the end of September - a fact not mentioned on the hotel website). I would add that you... More

We booked at half board week's stay at Il Castello via Travelzoo in early October. We arrived very late, nearly 1am, and were greeted by the duty manager, Jeffrey, who provided us with something to eat and drink before taking us to our room in the villa. The villa is about a 10 minute walk from the main hotel which... More

We arrived on the 5/10/16 and at first were impressed with the room which was a good size. The bathroom however was not of the same standard, the shower was tiny and stained, the shower nozzle would not stay in it's holder which was broken anyway. The toilet once flushed would not stop flushing, and although someone was sent to... More

We have just returned after a wonderful week at Relais Il Castello. The holiday was booked through Fleetway Travel and was an excellent deal for the chance to stay in a 16th Century hotel with flights, transfers and half-board for only £329 each. The small hilltop village was a delight but I would advise hiring a car as there is... More
