We booked 2 nights at Villa Cristina as a result of a personal recommendation from a friend who had stayed there several years ago. Although the place was clean & tidy, there is no evidence that the owner has re-invested in the property within the last few years to maintain, up-date or refurbish the facilities. We arrived early - the owner was not there. Instead we met a (non-English-speaking) cleaner, who communicated with the owner via mobile phone. Despite having specifically asked for a quiet room, we were allocated a gloomy, dingy room at the back of the house, which overlooked the busy, noisy road below (used locally as a 'rat-run'). We complained that we were not happy about this room when the owner returned; she told us we would be moved to a better room the next night. Several other (Italian) guests were eating there, so we decided to try eating at the Villa that night (rather than drive out into town) and asked for a simple pasta dish. We were served several other plates - various simple dishes (including chopped sauteed liver & onions) before we got the pasta. The food wasn't delicious, nor was it value for money. We spent an uncomfortable night (there was no air conditioning so windows had to be open, letting in the noise of traffic) BUT worse than this, the next morning, we discovered that the antiquated shower was not functioning properly (the settings couldn't be adjusted to a comfortable temperature - either scalding hot or very cold!) We complained about this, to which the owner expressed surprise and dismissed it with the reply that "...something must have gone wrong". She offered to move us into her 'best' room: a suite with a balcony, sitting area and a view over the back garden & countryside. We agreed. Breakfast was fairly basic; following that, we went out for the day. We returned to find our cases had been moved into a much larger suite, with pleasant, open views from the terrace. However, when we attempted to use the somewhat old-fashioned shower, on opening the doors, they came away from the fixture, hanging at an alarming angle! We called in a staff member, who apologised and reassured us that it wasn't us who had broken it. She would report it to the owner. Carefully negotiating the flimsy shower doors, we attempted to have a shower; temperature control was OK this time, but water from the shower-head spurted out in every direction other than where it was meant to go! All in all, a very unsatisfactory experience. We would not recommend staying at Albergo Villa Cristina.

This was a real find so near the old city of Spoleto. You feel the house as your own and Anna Maria makes you feel at home. She is a wonderful hostess and worries about every detail to keep you comfortable. Breakfast is wonderful, the same as the room and beautiful gardens. The place is kept in excellent condition and you get the best advice to profit from your stay.

During our St Francis pilgrimmage road Spoleto was one stop for us. The owner Anna Maria met us at the trainstation and drove us to the hotel a little outside the city center. The reception of us was friendly and very helpful. Anna Maria and the help in the kitchen served us a nice dinner and prepared a lunch pack for each of us for the days walk over the mountain to Ferentillo. A big thank you to the family who runs this place!

The B&b is located outside Spoleto, a short drive from the main car park for the city centre. We had a big double with a separated space for our two children. The room was very spacious and the bathroom as well. The place is very quite and the view is amazing. Breakfast was delicious with the addition of honey that is produced by the owner. The host was very helpful with information about things to do in Spoleto, we were there when there was a market of local food products. We will go back again when in the area because it is the perfect place to use as a base to explore Umbria.
