Reviewed 23 August 2017

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.

Room Tip: I'd recommend a room with an efficient air conditioning system in summer time.

We had a wonderful stay in Borgo Scopeto. The room was so comfortable and modern. The pool was quiet and the breakfast was stupendous. The hotel is brilliantly located to explore Tuscany.

We would not recommend the hotel restaurant as highly - there are nicer places to eat in the area.

We stayed at the Borgo Scopeto Relais in June 2017 and thought the hotel was very well located, the property was beautiful however the service was average. The rooms too could do with an upgrade as they do not befit the rest of the property. Overall thought it was overpriced and would not recommend it.

My wife and I returned to the USA a couple of weeks ago, and although we were glad to be home, our thoughts have drifted often to our lovely stay at Borgo Scopeto.

The setting is so idyllic, and the views from the borgo and our room were beautiful, beginning with the drive up the driveway that looks straight out of a movie set. Evening meals on the terrace, with views of Siena in the distance, were romantic and relaxing, the service attentive, and the food outstanding. It also helps to have many bottles available of the excellent Brunellos and the Misciano (riserva chianti) from the owners' vineyards!

All of the staff--from the restaurant to the front desk--were very professional and accommodating. We also received great ideas for day trips from the staff while we were there.

This time we came without the kids, but next time we will stay longer with the whole family.

Once again, thank you and your staff for your kind hospitality and excellent service while we stayed with you. We look forward to our return.

The hotel is set in a very picturesque part of Tuscany which was delightful. The food was excellent. However the service was really disappointing and not at all what you expect in a 4 star hotel. The other major disappointment was the fact that the hotel is so remote from any other restaurants and Siena. If you didn't want to eat at the hotel it is at least a twenty minute drive to the nearest restaurant. Lastly, their website is very misleading. It states that it is a "few" minutes from Siena. This is not accurate.It takes over twenty minutes in light traffic to drive to Siena plus time to find a parking space.
Tuscany is a wonderful holiday destination, which I felt was spoilt by our choice of hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony or veranda
