“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

If you have dreams of Tuscany like in the movies, this is the place to come. Nestled between Firenze and Siena, the view of the valleys and olive fields are breathtaking. Transportation is provided at no cost to Siena and Florence on alternating days. Come back home to a peaceful rest and an amazing meal. We alternated between a picnic from food we purchased in the city and the incredible restaurant in the hotel called La Torre. This is by far one of the most amazing meals we had ever had. The service was magnificent!

This is my second visit in under six months and I'm definitely going back again. First of all, the location is very convenient for those that want to check out the surrounding hilltop towns such as Sienna and San Gimignano. It is also close to the Chianti region which is great for visiting wineries. The staff are particularly helpful in many matters such as booking restaurants and helping with directions and arranging visits to wineries. This time they helped us get into Antinori's new facility which is a 20 minute drive from the property and they also booked us lunch there as well. The quality of the staff here are first notch and they all remembered us from our first trip. The last point is the property itself which is outstanding. There are varying rooms including connected suites and the facilities are great including a nice pool and the restaurant and bar are very good. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms have good views

Great stop over for visiting the upper Toscana Region.
It is half way between Florence and Siena.
The acces is easy and the views fantastic.
The level of service is impecable, the food and wines delicious.

I traveled with a group of 8 people and we had a delightful time at Castello Del Nero. Although the weather was a bit rainy and not optimal for using the facilities fully, the spa was perfect and the restaurant top notch. Our group enjoyed a customized wine tasting plus casual dinner in the bar and this was the highlight of our stay at the hotel. The staff was very helpful in regard to transportation and local restaurant recommendations. Unlike many properties I've enjoyed, staff usually recommends only their site for dining when a property has a top restaurant of their own, and this was not the case. My only complaint would be that the pricing of everything was a little high, but the quality met the price accordingly. This is luxury, not for value shoppers. We would visit again when our travels bring us to Tuscany.

Bill

p.s. The sommelier and Restaurant Manager were fantastic.

We stayed with my wife for a romantic Easter break from the big city. The service is very gentle and they give fantastic advice.

The SPA is good but not excellent. It has a medium hot pool and sauna but nothing too impressive.

Overall worth the money, specially for the views, the silence, the amazing chef cooks the best dishes for dinner.

We stayed 2 nights at Castello del Nero and this hotel is a true luxury 5 star hotel. From the moment you enter the hotel to the moment you leave. The service is perfect and all employees are very kind and helpful in providing information about the area, about restaurants, vineyards to visit etc. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable.
The views take your breath away. It is absolutely fantastic, wow wow and wow! You could stay forever on the terrace enjoying the views on their own vineyards. It is beautiful. We had dinner in La Torre, very good local products; Delicious.
We had a Spa treatment and the service at the spa is perfect. They explain every single detail and they truly care about you!
A place to recommend, but also to come back very soon!

This is a lovely place with impeccable service, comfortable and beautiful rooms, a good location to reach many of the hill towns, and a gourmet restaurant. Because we visited in April the weather wasn't warm enough to take advantage of the pool, but it looked very inviting! I was not feeling well one day while we were there and the staff took extra care to make sure I had what I needed and checked on me the next day - so thoughtful! If you book far in advance, you can get a better rate (we did through a travel agent), but even if we had paid more it would have been worth it!
