“Perfect location but we a little improvements the hotel could be great.”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 via mobile

Pro: location ( only 5 min from town center and great view), big and clean rooms, helpful service! Big pool, private parking.

Contra: beds are not comfortable, swimming pool area doesn't look cosy, with some little effort this would be better.

Conclsion: Nice hotel with perfect location to visit Florence and Siena. Nice view. Lovely service. I think prices are just that high in this area. Little improvements would make this hotel great!

We stayed here for 5 nights in June 2013 and held our wedding here with exclusive hire for 2 days/nights. Stefano, Charlie and the team were fantastic - nothing was too much trouble and the service was amazing the whole way through. The hotel is gorgeous and set in fantastic grounds with a lovely pool area and outside space. We had a meal for 70 guests on the Friday night and then full Wedding Breakfast on the Saturday both of which were fantastic. The team were happy to accommodate all of our requests such as where to hold drinks and eat and fireworks to top off a fantastic wedding. All of our guests were very complimentary about the hotel. Thank you so much - you made our wedding perfect.

We had the only 3 rooms booked in the entire place when we stayed. The room was nice, the grounds great and the service excellent. The highlight was the nightly dinner with had. It was fantastic. Take a tour of the wine cellar, its a treat!

Room Tip: Must do at least one dinner there and a tour of the wine cellar.

One of the best holidays we have had. After the dismal experience at Borgo La Bagnaia anything was bound to be better. La Collegiata not only surpassed out expectations we absolutely loved it! The hotel is set in the beautiful tranquil surroundings of an old Franciscan monastery, food is excellent, service friendly and rooms well apportioned. We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: We had the simplest garden room which was nonetheless lovely, large enough for a couple and baby.

Very disappointed overall with this hotel. Although a perfect location in beautiful grounds, the gardens were overgrown and very scruffy. Having stayed four nights we had adequate time to sample the food. Breakfast was ok, but dinner appalling, mostly meat dishes, frozen food no fresh vegetables, God help you if you were a vegetarian. The menu never changed. One one occasion my meal was so over salted I sent it back only to be replaced (by the time my Husband had finished his meal) with an equally salty offering. Other couples on the same night also had over salted dishes.
The room although dark was comfortable. Wifi did not work. But overall definitely not worth the money.

Once a charming Relais hotel...now it is a overpriced, empty box on a hill.
My bed sagged, the wifi didn't work, the food was very poor with some the food frozen. The gardens are negelected and brown, ...shabby-shabby

I have stayed at this property three times, most recently in July. It is one of our favorite places to spend a nice weekend. Not only is it a beautiful and unique hotel (a converted Franciscan convent built in 1587 - with a tower!) but the staff could not be any friendlier. They are always so kind an accommodating, and they are so great with our dog. The grounds are beautiful, the food is wonderful and it is just a lovely place to spend time.

My husband and I usually travel with our dog, but most recently went with extended family. It was their favorite stop on our trip. No matter the occasion, the service is always consistent. We will return again, hopefully in October before they close for the year. If not, we will be there when the doors open.

Thanks, La Collegiata, for always providing such a wonderful home-away-from-home experience!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the town are lovely. One day, we will spend the money to stay in the tower suite.
