Reviews for Hotel Borgo San Felice
Set in a beautiful part of Tuscany, not far from Siena, and surrounded by vines and olive trees, this former Borg remains in the hands of the family who now oversee its further development. As in most countries it is not easy to get permissions to modernise or develop ancient buildings, and rightly so. This is the case here. The owners have though recently got permission to instal a lift in the Palazzo (all being well by 2018). Otherwise it is stairs and more stairs and, at present, there is a shortage of ramps etc. for the disabled or aged. Patrons are housed in the various buildings making up the Borg. Ours was in the first building to be updated - and very well it had been done. Rooms are square and comfortably furnished (there are, of course, no balconies); Bathrooms are a little on the small side but do contain all the necessary amenities. If you want every 21st. century gadget known to man you won't find them here, but then San Felice is not that sort of hotel. Housekeeping is of a very high standard throughout the hotel. Lounge room is ample and comfortable; billiard players and cigar smokers are catered for. There are two restaurants; the one serves good, but not outstanding, a la carte cuisine, the other, housed in a very modern building (which also contains the Cookery School), serves copious amount of traditional Tuscan fare. Neither is cheap. Wines from the hotel's own vineyards are well worth sampling but the wine list is extensive, if in some cases, over-priced. Service is efficient and friendly and knowledgeable. The Staff throughout are excellent and are one of the strengths of the hotel. The grounds are very well kept as is the pool and there are plenty of loungers. A lifeguard is always on duty. The complex is worth exploring. Wine tastings and tours are available - for a charge. A work still in progress and it is already very good. You need a car for there is more to Tuscany than near-by Siena. If you simply want to sit and ponder then you can do that here easily enough. I suspect it will become an outstanding hotel - the owners deserve it to be.

Magnificent old estate surrounded by vineyards that produce fabulous Chianti wines. Convenient to Siena with its own magical history, the estate has a winery, a new modern chapel, and another that has been there hundreds of years. Rooms are very nice, service is excellent, the spa is lovely, and the food is fabulous. They even serve fudge on the breakfast buffet! A wonderful experience.

Borgo San Felice is a unique place belonging to the Relais & ChĂ˘teaux association located in the beauty of the Chianti Classico area. Borgo San Felice is a medieval village composed by different buildings. The rooms are located in different buildings. There is a lovely swimming pool with a bar almost always open for drinks and food. There are two additional restaurants. The 'Poggio' which is on top, with a nice view and sofisticate food and wine selection. The other restaurant 'Il Grigio' is also very nice and offer more traditional local food. There is also a small but very well equipped and luxury SPA. Wine testing and cellar visits are also available. In addition you can drive to Siena and interested areas in 30 - 60 min. My week was fabulous and I was so spoilt by the fantastic staff that I decided to reserve another week in August.

This hotel used to be an entire village so that alone makes it neat. Lots of buildings spread around a square, including a winery. The restaurant is excellent, both for the included breakfast and elegant dinners. (There are actually two restaurants and we enjoyed both but the fancier one has the better views.) Our room was just OK. A bit dark due to tiny window that looked out at the wall of building next door. But we didn't spend much time there so it wasn't a big deal. It's a great place from which to explore all the nearby hill towns like San Gimignano and Monteriggioni and of course Sienna. Some of the staff was excellent -- friendly and helpful. Others were a little cool for my taste.
