They looked after our group well. Nothing seemed too difficult and the whole time from booking to staying they communicated well and organised trips and transport

We had a junior suite...loved the color scheme (pastel yellow and pink), great big room, but layout is odd. They built the bathroom in the middle of the room, so you can actually walk around the 'cube' that contains the bathroom, water heater, and closet. The tub is narrow. Bed was very hard. Loved, loved, loved the side chairs. Double door entrance is a bit odd, but thick castle walls are hard to work with. We were on the same level as the elevator, no stairs.

We bought the spa pass for 2 hours. Steam room, sauna, pool, sun deck, and Finnish foot bath (walk through 1 shallow pool of luke warm water, then 1 of cold water, both with pebble floor). My husband really liked the foot bath although I didn't care for it. I loved the jets in the pool.

Beautiful views, lovely courtyards, cute little chapel. There's a path above the hotel, we didn't take. A small grotto with a status of the Virgin and a small fountain. Gellato stand was nice, piped in music. They only had the pizzeria open for lunch and dinner, but the meals were good and the price a relief after Venice. Lots of locals. Breakfast was in a lovely room, decorated in pastels with paintings of 18th century ladies on the walls. This room is partway up the main stairway.

Armory museum - Free, and on a taped audio feed. We had it to ourselves. Interesting if you like that sort of thing (we do), but tape goes fast. Some pieces are reproduction.

We didn't have a car because we took the train from Venice. Getting there we used a taxi. Easy enough if you book in advance. However, there really isn't that much to do if you don't have a car. We walked around the two villages you can see from the castle.The funicular was closed until 5pm the 1st day due to maintenance. Very quaint. Nice churches.

After the noise of Venice, this was a very nice change. Excepting the hard bed and odd bathroom, I loved it.

We stayed there in August 2008 not in September 2010.
I don't know any words to describe the feeling of living like a prince with your princess next to you. I can't think of expressions to convince anyone to book as many nights as possible to this hotel. It's the best place i've been so far.
Yes you need a car, but don't think of it as a difficulty.
You will love everything in the area arround the hotel as much as the hotel itself.
If you can afford it, book a deluxe room.Worth every cent.

We visited for a wedding and wouldn't usually have chosen such a huge hotel. It was a little complicated finding our way around the grounds but it added to the fun of being in a castle and we saw something new each time we ventured out. The only reason I've marked this down a little is that the room was a little bland and the hotel had a corporate feel, which is a shame for such an amazing building.

They provided a cot and bedding for our one year old and the room accommodated all three of us well. The staff all seemed very helpful. We arrived late for the wedding and they parked our car while we quickly got changed. They then brought our luggage and things we had just thrown in the car up to our room later. When we needed milk for our little one, they gave us a lovely warm glass from the restaurant.

The whole area is beautiful and it felt such a treat staying in a castle.

Hotel CastelBrando is a beautiful historic castle hotel up on a hill in Cison di Valmarino but unfortunately you need a car to get around the area to visit the vineyards. I think the hotel is usually booked by large tour groups around Christmas etc so they do not know how to cope with independent guest asking for maps of the villages at the bottom of the hill, or timetables for buses in the local area, or how to hire a car, or are there any tour companies that can organise visits or tours to different vineyards etc.!!! David at the front desk was the most helpful person and he should get a pay rise!
Cafe Roma in the village down the Funicular is amazing. Go through to the garden area and admire the peaceful surroundings and the flowers in the garden. Nice food and service here.

Room Tip: Go to Cafe Roma in the village
