“Pretty and relaxing, but a bit spartan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We had a terrible time finding the place, but once we were there we were happy. A wonderful first dinner in Italy, generally helpful staff, and a gorgeous setting. One complaint: they have the geographical coordinates on their website, but if you put them in your GPS you are directed (as they acknowledged) to the wrong place! So get good directions. We liked our room, but the shower was the size of a phone booth. As another reviewer said, not a luxury hotel.

Dear Sirs,

we thank you very much for having taken the time to write such a nice review about
our place. We are pleased you liked most of our services and facilities, because, as you
might have noticed, we are very much focused on a simple and genuine style. Even if
we are a countryside hotel, we try our best to make our guests feel good and comfortable,
using home made and local products only, and with all our personnel taking care of each
of our guests' needs and wishes. We believe that this is more important than stars (hotel
categories) to show on our flag. We hope to have you back one day and wish you all the best.
The Niccolinis & Staff

My wife and I stayed in this wonderful hotel for our 5 year anniversary. We absolutely fell in love with the hotel and surroundings. We have been to Tuscany a number of times and have never enjoyed it as much as we have when we stayed here. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool and surrounding area are a great place to relax during the day. We were also very pleased with the food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all typical Tuscan dishes with plenty of options for anyone who wants an authentic experience. The location is perfect so that anyone can take day trips to the surrounding wine caves and tasting rooms. We can not express enough how much we enjoyed our stay. We were sad to leave, but we will most definitely be back.

We loved our accommodations and the location of the hotel. The staff was very nice and the bar was a plus for an afternoon cocktail. They had a nice breakfast as well! We would stay there again during another visit to the region.

Very helpful reception staff made us feel welcome and very at home. The hotel in nice with a large garden and pool (which is quiet during the day as everyone is out). I think it was good value but the facilities/rooms are relatively basic. Breakfast was pleasant but was definitely lacking compared to those i received in other hotels on our stay. We had a nice meal in the restaurant, the steak was particularly good, but i thought the menu was quiet limited. You can take a taxi out in the evening for dinner but otherwise you must drive. Good location to San Gimignano, which is really nice town. I would recommend this hotel, especially to a family with kids as the gardens and pool would be perfect, however but if i returned to the area i would definitely try out an B&B/aggrotourism for something with more character and soul.

Room Tip: Terrace rooms are on the ground floor and give you some outside space, which is nice.

Dear Sirs,
we thank you very much indeed for the time you have dedicated to write down your nice
review.
We also would like to thank you for all the compliments you expressed in reference to our kind and helpful staff, our outdoor facilities, the wonderful location close to San Gimignano.
The hotel relies upon a great variety of rooms, from classic through Superior up to Deluxe types. If you had booked a classic room, so the interior design and equipment were in a simple, traditional way.
We regret to learn you didn't like breakfast so much, although we serve all sorts of things, from sweet to salty products (a very rich buffet breakfast). In the restaurant for dinner we serve typical, tasty dishes of the Tuscan tradition, every evening a different menu, so we don't actually believe that the choice would be limited. Of course, when we talk about food, we have to take into consideration that every person has a different taste.
Regarding booking a luxory hotel next time you come to our area, we strongly advise not to book a B&B/agriturismo, since your choice will meet something very simple and rough, nothing to do with luxury. With our kindest regards The Niccolinis & Staff

After driving around Tuscany for the better part of a day pulling into Csolare Le Terre Rosser was a oasis in the desert. The staff was excellent very friendly and helpful. The grounds and pool are beautiful. Rooms are very modern and spacious. Location is perfect for touring a large part of the Tuscan region not just San Gimignano. The last night we were tired of eating at different towns and decided to eat at the Hotel, after dinner we were sorry for not eating there every night the food and service was great. Next time in Tuscany I will go back.

Beautiful hotel, in a beautiful setting. A relief after the hustle and bustle of the cities with clean, comfortable rooms and modern baths. Sarah greeting us graciously, in English, and showed us where the breakfast and dining areas were located. Good hot breakfast buffet. We also had dinner at the hotel both nights, also very good. We wanted to thank our server here by name but unfortunately did not catch her name.
Good location for visiting San Gimignano and Volterra; the hotel provides bus shuttle to San Gimignano.

What a relief it was to stay in such a beautiful part of the world - especially after the crowds in Rome during Easter! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had no problem in communicating with the staff who spoke English given that our Italian was limited. We were so impressed with this hotel - we stayed an extra night! Breakfast could have been better, but that would have to be the only negative. It was fantastic to stay somewhere where we could wash and dry our clothes.
