This is a lovely hotel in a lovely region. In spite of this travel taking place during some of the hottest summer days, with temperatures reaching 40C, we had a beautiful drive to Vigliagli from Rome and I highly recommend it. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the service is friendly. Upon arrival the receptionist received us with a smile. The check-in procedure was fast and they offered us to park the car, which they did and in the shade. Our De Luxe room was located in the building across from the reception. It was spacious, quiet and had a humble but charming Tuscan décor. There was a little view and sufficient light from the small windows. The wifi worked efficiently in the room and all parts of the hotel we had visited. Another scored point. The only problem of our room was the air conditioner, which was a little noisy and little effective during hot days. Sometimes it was difficult to have a nice sleep. The technician explained that the system was old.
The social areas of the hotel were, as I said, charmingly decorated and with a more efficient air conditioning system. I particularly like the restaurant terrace with a view to Sienna in the skyline. It may be quite warm sometimes, and it’s a shame that the hotel did not provide an air-conditioned area for a pleasant meal during those extremely hot days. The restaurant food was fine, including breakfast. The service was however a little slow and, sometimes, we had to make an extra effort to attract their attention.
The swimming pools were a safe heaven during hot days. The smaller one is more charming, but it is also more popular with little kids. The larger one, which is perhaps more recent, may be quieter for adults. I however missed a pool bar service, and could not understand the reason why, in the peak of summer time, with long days, the pools closed at 7pm. Also, the bar glasses need to be properly washed before serving drinks. These are aspects I would recommend the management to look at. I’m looking forward to return sometime soon.
