“Great value, but odd location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013 via mobile

Lots of good stuff about this place - clean, well designed rooms, nice garden/pool and helpful staff. But location poor in a suburb of Perugia. Also, modern annex a bit soulless - felt like a business hotel. They run a very successful wedding venue from the hotel too - does not impact much on your stay, but does split the hotel and grounds very much in two. Finally, no views from the property and outside dining in the restaurant in a slightly depressing internal courtyard. Can see why it is popular with reviewers, and is good value for the money, but would not return/recommend.

Dear Maximilion
we regret reading your review, because we can't understand which kind of problem you've had with our venue. San Martino in Campo is a little country 8km far from Perugia, it's sorrounding by nature and very easy to find and it's in a good position near the most important Umbrian city and Village. The hotel is used also for business but is an Historic villa and in our opinion is this the main trait that give to everything a particular charme.
We hope, you can have a good remember of your stay in Umbria and we really hope you'll come back!
kind regards
Lucia Mencaroni

You approach the hotel through a narrow underpass and past some non-descript buildings, then through a gate - and suddenly this magnificent building and park comes into view. We were warmly greeted in the reception and taken to our rooms which were nicely appointed. Beware that the free Internet does not work in all the rooms. The breakfast room was very nice, and with a very good selection.
We had dinner in the Pantagruel restaurant the first night, and enjoyed it so much that we went back a second night. Excellent food and very attentive service at reasonable prices.
With its location close to Perugia and Assisi this hotel is a very good choice.

Room Tip: Rooms distant from the reception may not have the free Internet coverage.

The first thing you may appreciate is the staff exquisite professionalism and kindness: they are helpful and attentive like nobody else. Then the rooms, which are refined and very comfortable, with lovely view on the property.
We enjoyed the quiet spa highly and loved exploring the many romantic corners of the amazing gardens. I wish I had my wedding here!
You will need a car, but the location is excellent to visit the whole Umbria region and to do daylight excursions from the Tuscany seaside (Orbetello) to Urbino and anywhere between. We did so.
Actually it was our second stay there and we are planning to return soon. Heartily recommended!

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building ("Villa Costanza") are more characteristic and have free Wi-Fi...

We're just back from Alla Posta dei Donini where we celebrated our wedding. We had over 75 Irish guests with us and everyone was blown away by the service and food at the hotel. Most stayed there for three nights. The staff were all wonderful and the food was beautiful - we couldn't have been happier with the weekend. Lucia and her team helped to organise everything and were very helpful with speaking to local suppliers who didn't have English. We stayed there before the wedding and the restaurant on-site is lovely also. We are looking forward to returning!

Room Tip: Rooms in the main villa are particularly nice, but all of the rooms are very good.

Very close to Perugia, in the heart of Umbria the location is ideal to visit all the best spots of the region.
Great athmosphere, accurate service, superior comfort in an historic and artistic environment.
The hotel restaurant , Pantagruel, offers a quality choice of local and national dishes.
It's a family owned and managed resort: they are all very kind, as well as their staff.
Last but not irrelevant, it's really good value for money.

I stayed at the hotel with my boyfriend. The hotel was lovely and set on beautiful grounds. Our room faced the garden and was very spacious. I liked the fact all the soft drinks in the mini bar was free and replenished every day. Room service for breakfast at an extra EUR 5 was great.

The only downside was the noisy vent above our front door. It turned off about midnight and came back on about 7am.

Room Tip: We were in room 204 which had the view of the garden

We stayed here as my wife was attending a conference at the hotel. The hotel is quite lovely: very spacious and elegantly furnished rooms, located on a large site in a small village, so very quiet. Wifi worked well. Breakfast and dinner were excellent in the hotel restaurant, and the staff were very courteous and helpful. While my wife attended her conference, I took a local bus into Perugia, which was easy and very inexpensive. Note that, to stay here, you really should have a car. Although the bus was convenient, there are really no local options for dining other than the hotel. All in all, a very pleasant experience.
