Tuscany has always been on my 'bucket list' and when the opportunity arose to join a motorcycle tour from the UK which would use the Hermitage as a base a 'box was ticked'.
Previous Trip Advisor reviews were encouraging and I hoped the reality would match the expectations.
Located a short walk from the town centre with views of the town and countryside, the hotel possesses a relaxed ambiance that is reflected by the smiling, helpful and efficient staff. The location is a peaceful refuge from the busy roads, and a good touring base for exploring local city culture, mountain villages, wine growing areas, and the rolling Tuscan countryside. The bedrooms are air conditioned, clean and functional. The breakfast buffet varied and ample, and the 20 euro evening meal and drinks good value.
The heat of the late June weather can be best enjoyed from the shaded patio areas, or beneath umbrellas around the pool with a cool drink to hand. The cacophony of crickets in the hotel perimeter greenery is a reminder that your no longer in the UK but actually in the suburbs of an area of outstanding natural beauty.
I would certainly return.More
