Castel Monastero in Siena, Italy

Ten centuries of history radiate from the hand-hewn stone walls and terracotta floors at Tuscany's Castel Monastero, the centerpiece of a small medieval village called Monastero dell'Ombrone. The monastery first appeared in correspondence in 1044 in connection with the nearby Berardenga Abbey and over the centuries noble families transformed it into a castle. Thanks to painstaking restoration efforts, the ancient ambiance remains – guests from all over the world go for bespoke experiences, such as a Bentley ride through the Tuscan countryside.

Play with the daydream of moving to Tuscany – there are villas for sale at Castel Monastero, after all – as you wander through the property's sun-kissed vineyards. Indulge in an exclusive saline sea oil bath developed by the Thalasso team in Sardinia. Feast on an olive and cheese plate at an outdoor table facing the piazza. Catch a polo match at Villa Sesta Polo Club.

I want to start by saying the facilities are 4.5 to 5 stars. We checked in, were given a tour of the facilities (more detail could have been taken in the spa). Then we were taken to our room. It was in an out building on the edge of the facility, unbelievably quiet, with a wonderful view of the countryside. The room itself was fantastic, with a couple of minor exceptions, 1. The air conditioning didn’t really work, we should have complained immediately but we just opened the windows and enjoyed the cool breeze of the countryside. If we had screens on the windows we would have left the windows open all night as the fresh air was marvellous and we would not have cared about the air conditioning (there was a lot of bugs)! 2. There was no kettle or coffee maker in the room, now we loved the coffee in the main building but would have really enjoyed coffee or tea while getting ready for breakfast in the morning. We could have just room serviced it, but the 25 euro room service charge was too much for just a coffee and continental breakfast. These two things would have put the room over the top. We did not take advantage of the spa facilities but they looked fabulous. Our main reason to book the hotel was because of the Gordon Ramsay menu at the Contrada. When we checked in we were asked about making dinner reservations but we were too tired and asked if we could for one of the next two nights and were told it would be possible, the second night I called for a reservation for the third night. I was told that unfortunately there was a problem with their Tuscan restaurant so it’s menu was being offered in the Contrada and the Gordon Ramsay menu was unavailable. I expressed my displeasure and the staff was very apologetic. When checking out, the manager again apologized but told me that the website stated that the Ramsay menu was not always available, I have still not been able to find it. I am writing this review as I sit in my hotel in Florence waiting for my room enjoying a complimentary welcome drink (prosecco) and complimentary snacks, I think if Castel Monastero had offered this on my check in I would have been over the moon! Also we were just told they have a cocktail happy hour, again this kind of detail would set Castel Monastero Head and shoulders above the rest!

Previously a monastery in the 11th Century, this is now a beautiful resort with a spa, three temperature controlled pools and two fabulous restaurants. The staff is great and very attentive! The location in close to Siena and the surrounding area is gorgeous. High recommend!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Castel Monastero for 4 nights in early October. Upon arrival I was impressed with the serene property grounds. Our room was large, very clean and equipped with new linens and luxurious details such as a towel warming rack and big soaking tub. What impressed me the most of all was the customer service. The concierge or general manager was always available and ready to assist with any questions or requests we had. The hotel really went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of. If there was any issue, they were quick to correct and extremely apologetic for any inconvenience. They are a hotel truly focused on hospitality.

We arrived as a larger group, check-in was surprising prompt and the staff was very professional. We were shown to our room (a suite overlooking the hills). Our room was equipped with two pack and plays with a foam mattress and bedding for our 1 and 2 1/2 year olds and a very comfortable king bed for the adults (when the kids weren't trying to sneak in). The nicely finished bathroom had double sinks, a full size tub (kids loved it) and a copious number of towels. The suite also had a mini bar with a cooktop and a espresso machine. The property boasts 2 restaurants, La Cantina and Contrada. We dined in both restaurants and the staff was extremely kind and accommodating to our children. La Cantina was located in an old wine cellar, we ate here 3 times during our visit and it was very good every time. The joked about the wine list being the size of a phone book! We dined at Contrada only once. Staff was great, our group had mixed reviews on the food. (Although the kids were happy, especially with the pistachio ice cream). The breakfast was also good, it had a variety of cold cuts, cheeses, breads and pastries as well as scrambled eggs. The espresso based beverages were excellent. The Good- The setting is serene and all the staff were top notch. A great number of the restaurant staff knew my 2 1/2 year old by name. We did not participate in any spa services but others in our group were pretty happy with them. The Bad- Laundry service was pricey which is extra crappy considering the remote location. No iron in the room. Outdoor pool was NOT heated and kids are not allowed in the indoor spa pool. (This might be a plus for those travelling without kids!) Overall- A resort located in the beautiful Tuscan countryside with staff who genuinely care about the guest experience. They treated our kids extremely well!

We were blown away by the scenery and setting of the hotel even as we arrived. Before we had even got into reception the wonderful staff were greeting us by name and warmly inviting us into the hotel. The staff couldn't help us enough, and all aspects we experienced with the hotel were first class. The food and wine is excellent, and a trip to Contrada, the Gordan Ramsey restaurant is a must, the experience was fantastic. It really was silver service at all times, and we cant wait to take our families back with us next time.
