Hotel Villa Ambra

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 September 2010

For the second year running, we stayed at Villa Ambra for a few nights prior to taking up a week-long booking of a nearby self-catering farmhouse. As with last year, we thoroughly enjoyed both the hotel and the owners' on-site restaurant, which is of the highest quality. We were greeted as old friends, and nothing was too much in the way of customer care. We even got served a free additional pasta course during our evening meal, because the chef thought we would like to try it. Some of the rooms do not have balconies, and others are at the side or rear, rather than the front, but for a short stay this was not a problem. Overall, a very good quality family hotel in superb countryside setting, with easy access and ample on-site parking directly off the main road.

We were travelling from Amalfi on our way to Lucca and decided to spend a few nights in the Montepulciano area. After driving past a number of other places, we decided to take a chance on this one. It turned out to be a very pleasant surprise as we spent two nights here and enjoyed the hospitality of Marzio and and his lovely sister. The room was quite comfortable and very clean. The hotel was quiet and with its location off the main road it provided a nice country setting. We did not eat there our first night, which is regrettable as the meal we had on our second evening was quite good and certainly plentiful with seconds being offered. The service was great and you were made to feel like one of the family. Should we be in the area on future trips, we would definitely stay there again.

Our room was spacious with a balcony (overlooking the main road unfortunately). The bathroom was small and the shower was tiny probably one metre by one metre, challenging to say the least as I was 5 months pregnant at the time. Room was spartan but comfortable enough. Swimming pool was very nice. The food... sensational. Breakfast was usually some leftovers from the previous night and usual continental fare. But dinner was another thing again. More food than you can possibly eat. Same table every night and if you have any wine left your bottle stays with you on the table for the next night.

We stayed three nights at Villa Ambra and can't say enough about how wonderful Marzio was. He and his staff went out of their way to be helpful, making phone calls for us, helping us to find car repair, pharmacies, directions, etc. When his English failed him, he whipped out his Italian-English dictionary and we were always able to make ourselves understood. His sister, Catia, is the chef at the hotel restaurant and it was the best meal we had during our vacation at a relatively reasonable price!! She is also warm and welcoming and went out of her way to make sure that we enjoyed our dinner. This was a complete dinner from antipasti to dessert and Catia's Teramisu was fabulous! In addition to the wonderful prepared food, there was a salad bar that included a cheese and deli meat tray, several vegetable salads and potatoes. Breakfast was included in the price of the room and was very generous - juice, cheese, deli meat, homemade yogurt and packaged yogurt, fresh fruit, pastry, croissants, cappucino, cereal and milk - everything was on a buffet table and you could take as much as you liked, except for milk and cappucino. We each ordered two capuccino every morning and there was no extra charge. The rooms were large, clean, and comfortable and there is a small elevator which meant that we did not have to carry our bags up the steps. The only negative was the shower, which was a bit small, but it was a minor inconvenience. There was plenty of free parking at the hotel and it is an easy drive into Montepulciano. We used it as a base to visit Montalcino and Orvieto as well and we were between 40-50 minutes drive through beautiful countryside from each of these places. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed just one night and I'd say I'm overall happy with our stay. Hotel was very clean, room was a bit small but otherwise OK, and had a nice bathroom, and a large terrace (without view). Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was standard, with mainly continental offerings. Swimming pool looked good from my hotel room window, but I wasn't tempted as it was a bit chilly out. Ideal for those traveling by car as it is a little out of town. Ample free parking space is a plus. Value for money all round.

On our way back to Rome from Tuscany, we spent one night at this more-modern facility outside Montepulciano with easy access by car. The setting is lovely and the rooms are large, if spartan. Good air-conditioning, adequate bathrooms (by European standards), easy parking and a lift. The front desk was wonderful about resolving a slight glitch in our reservations and made sure we were completely satisfied with the arrangements. We were a bit confused by the dining room schedule; they stopped serving dinner around 8:30, which had been unheard of in all our other travels in Italy; but the staff did make sure we got fed a good meal. There seemed to be some arrangement with a spa, and we think most of the other guests, who appeared to be more elderly, were there for an extended stay involving the spa. There seemed to be a very set schedule for meals with dining room tables "assigned" to each party. Never did quite figure it all out. But the staff were lovely, and the accommodations were just fine for one night.
