Reviewed 28 July 2010

It was my boyfriends birthday so I have decided to book this hotel as a surprise. I have never experienced that the hotel sends you an e-mail concerning your wishes (i also booked a cooking class for him) after you make the reservation, even before you check in. The staff knows how to make everything possible.

They organized a wine tasting trip for us, reserved the tee time for us. On his birthday it was not a problem to make a small cupcake and bring breakfast to the room with a little candle.

The rooms are very spacious, nice, clean. It was not a problem to organize a smoking room (I forgot to state it when I was making the reservation).

The SPA is great, really high standard and you really know what you are paying for and all your money is really great spent. They have two outdoor pools.

The location itself is great. It is quiet and you can still be in a good hour and half to all major towns in Tuscany (Sienna is 10 min away). The landscape around is awesome, you can really explore Tuscany and enjoy it.

The Gordon Ramsey restaurant is a must. We thought we would eat there once or two times, but we stayed there every evening as the staff from the restaurant was amazing and it was not a problem to recreate the menu (so we tried different dishes also out of the menu). We also did a wine tasting there and got a lot of information and fun.

You really feel welcome at this hotel and it was sad to go as it was almost family with the staff.

it is a bit expensive but worth every single EUR.

If you would like to enjoy Tuscany, explore it and at the end of the day relax and have a quiet evening in a fabulous restaurant with people who really care about you and your wishes, this is the place for you!

We stayed for four nights at Castel Monastero and throughout the experience was wonderful. Beautifully located in the heart of Tuscany (great for wine tours), it has been tastefully and very professionally renovated to a very high standard-preserving the history and architecture and yet catering for all the needs of experienced discerning clientelle with all the modern amenities.
From our arrival the professionalism and courtesy of the staff was excellent and throughout our stay there was always evidence of senior management around dicreetly overseeing the whole operation-not always the case elsewhere in our experience.
The rooms are beautiful, very spacious with fabulous views of the countryside and are well fitted out-needless to say immaculately clean.
The food is excellent and if you get a chance, you must visit the cellar restaurant, which in our understanding is only open on Friday and Saturday nights.
The spa is immaculately clean , well equipped and the quality of the treatments that we experienced was world class.
Nothing was any problem for any of the staff and we will definitely be returning-really good value for money.

We have been meaning to publish a fantastic review for this property and joined Trip Advisor just so we could! Castel Monastero is out of this world....the rooms are phenomenal - huge rooms & sitting areas, luxurious linens and fabrics throughout, meticulous bathrooms (great water pressure), amazing hardwood floors, exceptional design and ambiance from the moment you approach the entrance gates...we were one of the first American families to stay at this hotel & the hotel staff couldn't be more accommodating and welcoming!

While the spa was not yet completed and open at the time of our stay, we enjoyed the pool, grass tennis court and of course delicious FOOD, WINE & beautiful surroundings of this outstanding property. We can't wait to return and experience the spa now that it is open!

We are extremely fussy travelers, having traveled throughout Asia, the US and Europe with our children (we are huge fans of Amanjiwo, in Java, Indonesia)...and generally select our travel destinations based primarily on the HOTEL experience...Castel Monastero was a huge homerun for us, and we have been known to hightail it when a hotel does not meet our expectations! The management of Castel Monastero clearly knows what they are doing and thoroughly enjoys and excels at providing a truly incredible tuscan travel experience for all of their guests!

When I decide to go to Castel Monastero I was not expecting to find such a Gem in Tuscany. My stay was wonderfull thanks to the friendship and helpfull reception staff, they can really help you with the best tours around the Chianti Valley, everything is a few miles away from this property and Siena is around 10 minutes by car.
This place has a special energy around it, enjoy!

As the hotel is new, and October is not a very touristic month, it appeared that we had basically the whole castle for our own, with just a few more guests in the hotel. The Castel appeared to be trully fantastic, romantic place with superb spacy rooms, huge beautiful territory with fields of grapes all around. Gordon Ramsys restaurant is gastronomic heaven, really worth spending there a few evenings. But it is service that made this vacation so special. Right at the arrival we were given a higher category room (I know there were not a lot of guests, but still a great move). All week long during our stay at this beautiful place the staff did all to make it unforgettable, everyone was very helpful and willing to meet our needs. In both restaurants we had no problem ordering various dishes that we'd like to try, which were not on the menu.
Special thanks for treating our little dog that travelled with us. This is the first place where they treat pets so fantastic.
Overall this is definitely one of our favourite hotels now, and we plan to visit it again next year. A great spot to relax, plus easy to reach most of well known Toscan touristic spots like Siena, San Gimignano and huge amount of wineries, castles, monasteries, factory outlets (for those seeking great shopping).
With finishing two indoor pools next year (so far just three open-air pools) this place will definitely be a top of the notch.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
While painters are born, travellers are made and no land has aroused the curiosity, the enthusiasm and the culture of entire generations more than Tuscany. Certainly, not all of them have had the luck to begin their journey in the enchantment of Castel Monastero. In fact a few kilometres from our village, along roads of pure delight, can be found masterpieces of art and of the highest culinary tradition.Every day, a discovery. Every day a different itinerary passing through unspoiled scenery. Every day, on your return, a massage and a candle-lit dinner. And together, over a romantic meal for two or with your friends, you will recall the frescoes of Piero della Francesca and the perfect walls of Monteriggioni, the Renaissance utopia of Pienza and the gastronomic glory of Castellina in Chianti. And again, to surprise you, there’ll be a sunset over Pitigliano and a stroll around the Etruscan necropolises of Sovana. ... more   less
