Just returned from 4 night stay here booked via groupon. It was a well deserved break got my partner And I.
Staff : all very friendly and willing to help. Happy to speak English too.
Breakfast: continental with a eggs and bacon tribute thrown in. We didn't try it as hapoy to go continental when aware from home. Don't drink the coffee in the hot urns as it smells yuk. Order a freshly made coffee from waiting staff it hit water for your twinnings breakfast tea.
Rooms : stayed in room 214. Asked got room with view but hotel fully booked. However not a prob. We looked out on to courtyard which was fine. Bed is huge comfortable. Screens on windows to stop midges etc. no air con do a little warm dome nights. Bathroom : adequate clean and good range of toiletries even nail file cotton buds and cotton wool. However shower is a rain shower over bath but not enough power near body and its direction and shower guard is too short which means you end up flooding the floor! Not a problem as its marble floor but have to use towels to mop up. No fan either so gets very steamy.
Bar : good selection of wine. Staff happy to help you choose. Had €10 buffet on first night which was olives, capsicums, pickled onions, houmous, croissant things?, bread and cheese etc. it was ok.
Restaurant; expensive. Food - ok. Partner had chianti Classico spaghetti- house special. Basically spag drowned in a bottle of red wine which resembled purple worms! I had beef fillet - medium bit was rare. Very tasty tho and had roast pots as side dish.
Spa: €10 each for use whole duration of stay. Very good medium size pool also a jacuzzi, steam and sauna. Outside pool is freezing but free!
Veranda: enjoyed a bottle of proseco - €30 here lounging in the sun with my partner. Wonderful views and company.
Chambermaids : very good exceptional standard if cleanliness
Minibar in room : water still sparkling, pop and cans beer. Think you are charged for this
Local tax: €2.50 per person per night. Can't escape this. Is added every day.
Surrounding area : visited siena, Firenze, radda, castillena, lucca. All beautifully old lots of history shopping and fooderies. Lots to explore and soak up. Got a nice bag and shoes !
Goldcar: we purchased extra €80 waiver for car and good job we did as got a puncture on way from Pisa to radda. Partner put jack in wrong place so also buckled the car chassis a little but no charge as paid the waiver. There is a spare tyre in boot and jack kit plus triangles and hi vis jackets all compulsory abroad. Tyre is a slimmer one and you can't do over 80km on it. Roads are shockingly narrow and pot holey unless you use autostrade where you pay toll. Only used this on way to lucca on last day. All other times used ss and sr routes. Very scenic if a little scary at times! Italians are mad drivers.
All in all had a perfect holiday and would definitely go back!
