“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2012

Unless you are staying in the apartments, there are only a few and they are charming and quite spacious, then look elsewhere because the value is not there. After an annual touring holiday of Italy and France, staying in similar accommodation each night, we found the prices here were exorbitant especially given the fact that our room and bathroom were minute and basic. remember also that the town is small and fairly obscure quaint though the experience may be. our bed looked like a camp bed and was not comfortable. It was difficult to escape from our small room because the guest area downstairs was very cluttered, dark and unwelcoming. On the positive side the staff were very friendly and helpful however this is negated by the overcharging.

Room Tip: Choose your room carefully. Room number 1 is very small especially for an extended stay. Room number...

The food, service and walking on this holiday were all superb! ercole is a lovely man who is always working for the good of his customers. and his wife roberta made some of the best food we have ever tasted. also ercoles cooking classes featured pasta dishes and a pork one. the walks were scenic and you always could come back to a cold drink by the lovely pool. our rooms were lovely and they all had a great veiw from the shuttered windows. it is in the heart of the beautiful village. we had to have a early start on the last day (5:30 am!) but ercole was happy enough to give us cake and coffee before leaving. a overall excellent stay!

We spent a week here on a walking holiday. The hotel is in the heart of the village and close to all amenities including an excellent gelateria. The village is very friendly and, considering its size, surprisingly vibrant. Ercole is a very genial host and makes you feel really welcome, his wife Roberta, cooks the most amazing food and there is plenty of it! Roberta uses a lot of fruit and veg from their own garden which Ercole tends with infinite care. Each course was carefully explained and Ercole was very adept at choosing an appropriate wine to accompany it. We ate breakfast and the evening meal on the lovely terrace surrounded by Ercole's well tended borders and climbing plants. We had an apartment style room which was fab, very traditional, very clean and well equipped with espresso machine and fridge. The area is wonderful for walking, very scenic and the hotel pool was a welcome treat on return from the walks. We also took the train to Florence one day, which was cheap and efficient. It all made for a very memorable and magical holiday.

Room Tip: We paid extra for an apartment room - well worth it.

We were based here during a weeklong walking holiday. The walking was terrific, but it was the accommodations that made the trip magical. Our room was lovely, well-appointed, and (thanks to thick stone walls and careful shutter management) cool in spite of the fairly intense July heat during our stay. The staff were unfailingly helpful and kind. Among the efforts that helped us to more fully appreciate the amazing place we were in were Ercole's wine and olive oil tastings, his pasta-making demonstration (we got to eat the upshot!), and the hotel mini-bus, which on three occasions drove us off to some remote spot connected to the Locanda by a beautiful walk along ridges and past ruined Medici forts. Roberta remains a theoretical entity, but the cooking attributed to her was delicious, remarkable both in its variety and its quantity, and rich in terroir. Finally, the cani of the Locanda were enchantingly hospitable, and made it clear the morning we left that they were sad to see us go.

My husband and I have just returned from a fantastic weekend at Locanda Senio. The place had been recommended to me by a friend and I can not say enough good things about it. When we arrivedon saturday afternoon we were given a very warm welcome by the staff and taken to our room, which I must say was beautiful, very, very clean and charming, with everything you would need. We relaxed in their lovely pool area, and experienced the cooking demonstration and wine tasting which was lovely, Erecole (who runs the show and is front of house) taught us how to make a lovely pasta dish (from scratch) with local ingredients accompined by some lovely local, wine and oil, he was very charming, great fun and made us feel so welcome. Later we had the nicest dinner I have had in a long time, a personalised menu, amazing food, lovely atmosphere and service, Roberta (Erecoles wife and the chef) devised a really unique and tasty menu that was made of local produce the herbs even grown on site. I would reccomend this place to anyone wanting to feel relaxed, comfortable and spoilt, the town is beautiful and you must visit!! Thank you for making us so welcome we will return soon.

Contrary to most of the reviews, I did not enjoy stay at Locanda Senio. The main reason for it was the rooms, which I completely disliked. First, it was December, and we had gas (?!) heating in the room that was shut down automatically around 22h or 23h. Secondly, the floors are from stone, and not a single carpet (as I came in already ill, this fact caused me to strengthen all negative affects of cold) is present. The room was really small, barely giving enough space to walk around bed, and TV did not work either. Thirdly, the bathroom was something I could not expect in Europe: you have to enter the shower in order to reach the toilet. Yes, shower does not have a cabin, and is basically market by curtains while you stand on the floor for the shower. After you shower, there is no way to enter toilet without getting your feet wet - unless you enjoy wearing shoes in bathroom. And water-closet does not have lid - seems to be some kind of antique structure.
The whole situation was saved by extreme friendliness and hospitality of hosts, who tried to provide personalized and highest quality service ever. And the food is truly amazing there - don't eat there if you are on diet...
