We booked this hotel as a stopover on the way to Tuscany after flying into Rome. Civita Castellana is a great introduction for those interested in experiencing the "real Italy" away from the usual tourist locations and the Relais Falisco is an ideal place to stay. It is only an hour and a quarter by road from the airport, the rooms are spacious, the staff very helpful and we had a pleasant dinner in the restaurant attached to the hotel. When we were unloading our car, we discovered that we had left a small travelling bag with our camera at the airport. Gabriella at the hotel was particularly helpful and spent a lot of time on the phone trying to locate this bag which we managed to retrieve the next day.
We only had booked one night at the Relais Falisco but the town and hotel merit a longer stay. The town and its massive fortress are located in a spectacular position overlooking a gorge. We visited the fortress which is being converted into a museum with extensive exhibits dating back to pre-Roman times. We were interested in taking photographs inside this fortress but it was a bit puzzling why this was not allowed.
Staff at the hotel told us that they get groups of artists staying at the hotel from time to time and the location appears to be ideal for such activities.
Civita Castellana is involved in the production of ceramics and we visited the studio and shop of Vincenzo Dobboloni where we saw him at work and where we purchased some decorative plates.
Other places close by include the small town of Nepi which also has a long and interesting history.
In summary, the Relais Falisco and Civita Castellana deserve a much higher profile and those passing through the area will be well rewarded if they decide to stay a few days.

Visit Civita Castellana on business regularly - this is a great place to base yourself. The hotel feels very traditional but has been very cleverly refurbished several years ago. The location is in the centre of Civita, an old town but not particularly beautiful by Italian city standards. The approach and ambience is very peaceful.

The service at this hotel is first class - the staff all speak several languages and cannot do enough to help. The rooms are very spacious and quite traditional. The TV channels could do with having more than BBC World for international visitors but this is a minor point. Breakfast is served in a pleasant small room and the choice adequate. The bar area is very pleasant as well as the courtyard area where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine whilst having a cool drink.

There are several good restaurants nearby including La Scuderie which is 'on site' - reviewed separately. An average experience compared to previous visits. There is also the Pan e Pomodoro 100m away which is great value and lively for Civita.

The gym though is a bit dated to say the least!

I've had several opportunities to work with this hotel, as I sometimes reserve it for guests on my small group tours of the area. (www.italianexcursion.com) The hotel staff is top notch. They speak Italian, English and French and are all kind and accommodating, making guests feel very welcome. The building, a significant historic one, in the center of town, is charming. Some of the rooms can be a bit dark and are not too large, but are well appointed with comfortable beds and linens. They serve an excellent breakfast and the rates for the rooms are very reasonable. There is a new restaurant, in what was once where the horses were kept, when the building was a palace, hundreds of years ago. It is adjacent to the hotel and it has gotten very good reviews, though I've yet to try it.

Booked this hotel in a hurry as a stopover before flying out of Rome and didn't really pay too much attention to what it was like. Was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived to see what a gorgeous place it place it was and what a fabulous little town Civita Catellana is (though not that near Viterbo). The receptionist (?Georgina) was exceptionally helpful and professional and gave us a lovely room overlooking the courtyard with a heavily scented wisteria overhanging one of the windows. The room had bags of character but was also very comfortable with a huge bathroom. It was tempting just to stay there but we asked advice on where to go in town and were signposted to the key points of interest which included a tour round the fort which includes the town museum. I'd already been round 5-6 provincial museums but this was by far the most impressive with a great display of Faliscan, Etruscan and Roman artefacts. The main square, cathedral and gorge were also all very impressive. Breakfast was fairly standard but we really appreciated the staff setting it up half an hour early to accommodate our early departure. Landing up at Falisco was a real bonus and a great way to round off our holiday.

Very nice palace in the center of Civita Castellana, a small town near Viterbo. I was ther for the annual running race "Tre Comuni" and I enjoyed the hotel: huge interiors, fire places, a nice lounge bar. The room was a little bit tiny and even if it had an hand painted wood ceiling (beautiful!), walls were not completely "white" and the TV was too small for a 4* hotel.
Anyway, it was a very clean room. The reception service was very excellent and the breakfast very good. Moreover, tha place is at 100 meters from the Duomo. I recommend it!
