Reviewed 5 August 2014

Nicely located, about ten minutes walk from a wonderful small town and with a splendid view over the Tuscan countryside (large garden + terrace). Excellent outside pool (15 meters). Very friendly service. Rooms at ground floor level are good, the ones at -1 less so. Very acceptable breakfast buffet & restaurant.

Room Tip: Ground floor

Good location (town and country hotel, simultaneously). Good room and breakfast. Swimming pool to cool off after rides (in summer, of course !). Spectacular view of D`Orcia Valley. Some facilities in need of renovation (pool, for example). Free bikes. Excellent to three wine tours: 1-Brunello (Montalcino); 2-Nobile (Montepulciano); 3-Chianti (visit Dario Cechini Restaurants in Panzano)

Room Tip: View of the D`Orcia Valley. Fantastic !

We stayed here as part of a walking group and were made very welcome. As San Quirico is only a 7 minute walk away, it was the perfect location with lovely grounds and a view from the balcony off the dining room of the beautiful Tuscan hills. All spotlessly clean and the staff were friendly and responsive to our needs. Try the owner's wine - better than the more famous Brunello and much cheaper!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the pool and garden.

A little of the beaten track but well worth spending a few nights here. My wife and I spend three nights here and the surroundings were what we envisioned from a Tuscan experience. Rolling hills, farmlands and vineyards, it was a true Tuscan delight. It was an easy drive to Siena, San Gimignano and other towns, so we did not feel that we missed out by staying here. The swimming pool was a nice diversion late in the day. Remember to bring your swimming cap.

A beautifully situated hotel, very clean with a nice layout of dining room, lounge areas, pool, elevator, and good views. The front desk in the morning was presided over by an indifferent receptionist, male, who preferred to read his paper and if he spoke at all, it was with grunts. Dinner in the evenings offered very well prepared Tuscan meals, delivery of which was quite abrupt with server bursting through kitchen door, dropping down plates without ceremony, actually stepping on someone's bare toes in the process, rush rush rush, rather like a factory assembly line. Walls between rooms are paper thin. Third floor would be quieter. One could easily forget all this, immersed in the Tuscan countryside and the warm sun and special golden light reflected from fields and hills, so I would stay here again for its location in the delightful town of San Quirica d'Orcia with an upper floor room. My second floor room looked over the pool and view of the countryside. The top floor in the older part of the hotel would have improved my stay considerably in terms of more quiet and same view.

Room Tip: top floor facing pool for more quiet

The hotel is about 15 mins walking from the centre of San Quirico,where there are plenty of restaurants,with good value menus,the hotel only appears to offer a fixed price menu.

Our room was spacious and clean with an excellent balcony and we overlooked both the pool ,which looked very inviting ,and the Tuscan hills and in the distance to town of Montalcino from where we had walked

The reception was efficient ,but lacked warmth and any attempt to sell the hotel's facilities

Breakfast was one of the best of our trip and provided plenty of choice

Room Tip: Try and ensure a balcony and views of the Valley D'Orcia

Look I can see the reviews but we really hit this hotel at the wrong time becuase our stay was not very good at all. Let's start with the positive, the hotel is in a nice location on the edge of town but still a nice 15min stroll to the center. The pool area has a lovely view. Now, on arrival we struggled with our bags while the man on reception watched, approached the counter no hello, no greeting, actually he looked very grumpy on the verge of angry. We offered our passport, nothing not a word, he fussed over papers for 10mins, huffing, finally put a key on counter and that was it. I have never had such a bad welcome in a hotel ever. We asked for directions to find our room, but he had turned his back and was off. The room was tiny and hot. We tried to get the aircon working, being an extremely hot Italian summer day. Nope. Asked reception, no there is no aircon is what we could work out. Whether permantly or just today I don't know, but no attempt to recitify. Terrible nights sleep with windows open and mosquito/midges in. I had flown into Italy that morning for a Tuscan holiday and was already upset, feeling like the next 3 weeks was going to be hoteliers like this. So without aircon we went down to the pool hoping to cool off. Into the pool we go, so relaxing, beautiful, a little caravan park with unkept lawns etc but hey I'm in Southern Tuscany, I should get over it. Within 5mins a staff member came over to tell me I wasn't allowed to swim without a bathing cap and as she is going on lunch in 5mins we can't swim without a life guard on duty, she will be back in hour. Stunned doesn't describe how I felt, nor does angry. We got out the pool, walked into town and ordered a stiff drink at the local cafe to calm down. That night we ate at the restaurant and was served the worst deep fried battered vegetables, Ive ever eaten (soggy) and greasy poultry with oily fennel bake. We didn't eat at the restaurant again. Look I really wanted to like this place, but it just wasn't for us. I think it would suit families who are after an affordable basic base for activities during the day and people who can speak Italian.We didn't find this hotel comfortable and it lacked even basic hospitality driven service.
