Yes it is a very romantic hotel with incredible views, pity that it is extremely expensive for the average service you get. Do not go for the "thermal experience " as you would be disappointed as the swimming pool looks more dirty than thermal... Most of the rooms are old and very badly insulated so you can hear hour neighbors...

Dear Mr Recomone, we are happy you found our Hotel Romantic and you enjoyed our stunning views on the val d'Orcia, which is a World Heritage SITE promoted by UNESCO since 2004. As far as the "Thermal Experience" we are proud to say that our 5 pools are fed EXCLUSIVELY with Thermal water which is changed daily. No filtration is...

Castello is a lovely property and the rooms are very clean and well maintained. However, the look and experience at Castello doesn't seem as grand as the pictures and their website make it out to be. We were very disappointed with the food. Very skim selection with their breakfast. There was quite a selection of cold meats and pastries. However,...

The resort has hot and fresh thermal water. Unfortunately, the Pool and the Spa area is not very well designed (no waterfall, no hot or cold tub, no stream etc.). The competence for thermal water and wellness is not impressing. This could be better. We booked the Sunset Suite with fresh thermal water in the room. It‘s difficult for bathing...

The hotel is very beautiful, has a lovely pool and stunning views of the vineyards below but it does not deserve 5 stars. Our room was spacious and well appointed but the hallways are a maze and are confusing. Breakfast was very nice with an ample selection for the buffet but the dinner restaurant, which bills itself as "gourmet", was...

Dear LauriB, we appreciate your expressions and we are sorry if your stay with us didn't correspond to the hundreds of Enthusiasts of Castello di Velona and Repeater Guests of our Hotel. Being a Hotel built in a Castle dated XIth century, it is quite normal to feel a bit disoriented at the beginning, for this reason all our hallways...

The hotel is certainly a 5 star experience, the service was excellent, the room was unusual and very attractive with a little terrace onto the amazing vista. They offered us a bottle of bubbly and strawberries once they realised we were on honeymoon (they didn't notice this in the reservation request) which was generous. The pools are at 30 degrees...

The castle is on a hill surrounded by vineyards, so the view from every side of the castle is breathtaking. Due to the height, it can get a bit windy - staying there in September, we found it too cold to sit outside for dinner. Even though it's a castle, it's been refurbished, with smooth stone floors and all mod...

This place has to be seen to be believed. The views of the Tuscan hills around Montalcino are breathtaking and as you drive up to to entrance you know you are about to head somewhere special. Which it is. Our room was also incredibly beautiful. But a few simple changes could make it even more better. Someone waiting at the...

This is just pure luxury. We only visited the spa for the day, but the surroundings and quality of this place just shine through. It was by far THE best spa experience we have ever had. Outdoor, indoor thermal pools, Jacuzzi, steam rooms etc etc. The views from the outdoor pool are something special. We want to go back asap.
