An old mansion has turned into a quiet luxury hotel with a nice garden (for lunches under the trees), a spa with a brandnew in/outdoor extension (they were building it in august and it should be ready by now), an outdoor pool and an excellent breakfast. Our room was in the garden, well furnished and clean, with a terrace, all... More

This is a great setting, however the setting does not make up for the lack of consistency and poor service. During our stay the hot tub was out of action for 3 of the 7 days due to construction work. Evening meals were inconsistent and often contained far too much salt. Room was adequate, but poorly maintained with loose tap... More

Cortona Hotel and Spa – (Cortona, IT) – Cortona was made famous by the American author Frances Mayes and is now overrun with tourists. It is lovely and set high on a hill with an escalator (when it is working) to take you to the top from one side. Parking is almost impossible. The hotel is a couple of miles... More

I must say, the stay here was a big dissapointment. The property has a big potential, but it is lost as the price, service and overall services did not match at all. First the room - for 210 per night you will get an outdates, tired old room, with very noisy aircondition, no nets on the windows, so there is... More

I spent a week here in June 2016, and it was just wonderful. From a comfortable room that was equally cosy and luxurious, to a picturesque setting that suited both daytime relaxation and evening, wedding party socialising, this resort was everything a wedding party needed it to be over a three-day stay. Add to all of its aesthetic qualities a... More

I cannot say enough about the Cortona Resort and Spa as a small wedding venue. We took over the place for three days and three nights and everything went exactly according to plan - in fact they exceeded our expectations. It all started when we first contacted Sonia to discuss various options for my daughter's wedding and she could not... More

We absolutely loved this small boutique hotel. They were incredibly friendly and gracious. The complimentary spa with a steam room, hot tub, sauna, and a salt too was fantastic. We were super impressed the breakfast in the morning-- also complimentary. I normally hate buffets, but this was lovely. Not a far drive from the village of Cortona or the amazing... More

A wonderful hotel with very helpful and friendly staff ! This hotel went the extra mile to ensure that their guests relaxed. The Spa facilities were very good .
