Stayed here of 2 nights in June 2006. 4 star rating in Italy is deceiving - compared to 4 star in other countries! Double rooms are small. We were moved to a family room for the second night. As it was quiet cool during our stay, could not get heating to work in room. Took some time for shower to get hot. Our 18 month old slept in travel cot provided by hotel, which had fresh sheets but actual cot was quiet used and dirty. Food - average to poor quality. Breakfast buffet includes cerals, fruit,cake, etc - Croissants were probably the best on there. Waiters seem to 'stand guard' over coffee making machine, even though it seemed to be a simple press button and get your drink machine - so not sure why guests could not do this themselves. At breakfast one morning, noticed one gentleman filling up a plate with cake using his hands..thought to myself, he must be really hungry and have a real sweet tooth, but then he came and offered it at each table - hygiene?? We used a high chair for our 18 month old - and this was also damaged, screw missing to keep child in at top of chair. Hotel seems to cater for those doing cycling tours. Parking available outside hotel at no extra charge. Located approx 15 walk from Volterra. Would not stay there again.
