“Luxury B&B”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This B&B is in the old town. It's more like a hotel than a B&B, except they don't offer 24 hour service and are there from breakfast to 1pm and from 4pm to 8pm. During those hours the service is friendly and helpful. We drove and, on arrival, they gave us a pass for street parking, which was available down the street and around the corner (out front was only okay for offloading). The property is a beautifully renovated palazzo. All the amenities and furnishings were to a high standard. There's a tranquil courtyard garden where we had breakfast and where you can just relax with an espresso coffee or drink from the bar if you like. There is a pleasant fragrance from scented candles in the entrance area. There was excellent WiFi throughout. Our bedroom was spacious with a high vaulted ceiling. Each room has its own bathroom like a proper hotel. There is Sky television and mini bar. The breakfast buffet had a good range and was good quality. There were nice little touches, like bringing us fresh made fruit smoothies at breakfast. They made a few dinner recommendations and we tried one and it was good. Overall this place was very difficult to fault. I had two tiny niggles. There was no milk on the breakfast buffet and I had to go to the bar and hold out my bowl of cereal for someone to pour the milk for me. Guys, how about giving cereal-eaters a little jug if you don't want to leave the milk bottle out? My other little complaint is that the cake on the breakfast buffet was not all made fresh daily. I'm afraid cake that's a day or two old is past its best in my book.

This is a boutique hotel at the edge of the beautiful old town of Lecce. What a surprise as we entered through the gates into an entrance court yard, then into the reception area to the smell of fresh baked cakes for breakfast. Luxury is the only word to discribe how we felt. There is a much larger beautiful treed court yard for relaxing and breakfast. Our greeting and run through of information was impeccable. We have fallen in love with Puglia and boutique hotels like this make the experience all that much better. True 5 star luxury.

Room Tip: It is a boutique hotel, we booked a basic room and found it more than adequate.

From the room to the staff, everything was just perfect... The design and small details makes it what a boutique hotel should be. Marta's tips from shopping to restaurants and places to visit made our stay even more enjoyable. The breaksfast was awesome!

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Mantatelure in July 2014. The hotel was beautifully designed and decorated, with all modern conveniences. Marta and Marco welcomed us and Marta was incredibly helpful in planning itineraries and making restaurant recommendations. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fabulous and served in a peaceful outdoor courtyard. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. I would highly recommend Mantatelure for a romantic trip or a small group of friends.

The more one travels and Puglia is the place for holidays the more one appreciates the style and elegance of the very best boutique hotels, The Mantatelure is up there with the best. Martha's brilliant eye for service , information and efficiency together with the owner's impeccable design taste singles this hotel out as one of the bests in the region if not the best.

Room Tip: Not necessary all are lovely.

We stumbled upon this place by accident, literally. I mistyped the hotel. How lucky! This is a true true five star place. We celebrated our 10th anniversary here and are so glad. It's beautiful and spotless, stylish and renovated. The owners and staff are just other-worldly. The breakfast is home cooked pastries, and they are each amazing. The coffee drinks rival any cafe. And Fancesca and Marta are just wonderful. When I realized I was allergic to a blanket, Marta came herself and remade the bed! Don't waste money on the Masserias and Borgos in Fasano, we did and regretted it. Staying here was absolutely the best decision we made. Loved Lecce, Loved Mantatelure!

Room Tip: Get the Suite!

I am not sure that we liked Lecce as much as we did because of Lecce or because of Mantatelure. Mantatelure is a great place to stay - excellent rooms, stylish decor, a peaceful environment and perfectly located. Top of the list of attributes is Marta for whom absolutely nothing is too much trouble. Her enthusiasm for Lecce is infectious as well as very useful - she will direct you to all the places (and restaurants) to visit. Marco the owner is a man of few words but many talents it seems -his restaurant, Il Pescheria, is also superb. I would recommend both unreservedly.

Room Tip: Really, all rooms are great. Ours was on the very quiet street up a flight of stairs but still very...
