We didn't know what to expect when we got to this hotel. We had read all the reviews and felt it was a good choice based on the location. We were truly blown away by the level of service from the staff including Lisa and Angela and particularly enjoyed all our interactions with the manager, Osmon. We felt that he took great care of us and that he took great pride in making sure that all his guests had a great experience. Osmon would help us each morning figure out our driving itinerary and give us recommendations on great sites to visit. One thing that I was extremely surprised by was the fine dining at the restaurant at the Brandano. As a rustic inn, you would expect rustic dining however this was far from the case. We ended up eating there 3 out of 4 nights and tasted practically everything on the menu--not one thing is bad! With excellent wine pairing suggestions from Osmon. Osmon even arranged for us to meet the chef and learn how to she prepares her fantastic gnocchi dish! The one suggestion I would have for the Brandano is to improve the quality of their mattresses. That said, the bedrooms are nice--we stayed in the Leonardo da Vinci suite. The room is rustic and overlooks great views of the patio/valley and narrow stone paved front street; however, the bathrooms are modern. We truly had an enjoyable experience and would recommend the Palazzo Brandano.
