The combination of art, natural beauty and friendly service exceeded our every expectation - the people of the Park Hotel Chianti truly understand hotel keeping. Standards are consistent, food and drinks good, accommodation clean and excellent value for money and service outstanding, from reception through house-keeping and breakfast. Advice was cheerfully given and proved valuable - 1 week was not enough to scratch the surface but we are desperate to return. What a spectacular experience - we felt cared for, valued and there was no hint of commercialism or contrived friendliness. The Trattoria next door is excellent value for money with great service, and the Fattoria halfway up the hill is the posher option, but more pricey. Excellent food makes it worth every penny though. Special mention must go to the cheerful breakfast crew - they knew our order after 1 day and every morning started with a charming 'buongiorno' and excellent cappuccinos - what a great way to start the day!
Great hotel that is run by a family. Very friendly and good breakfast with a lot of choice. Swimmingpool and service are good. Nice restaurant next to the hotel, try something else than pizza and spaghtti. I can recommend the wild boar. The bit of noise from the highway is 'gone' after a day. It's usually a good idea to rent a car in Italy so we did. The center of Tavernelle is a few kilometers away. Location on the autostrada is nice so you can easily go visit famous and less famous sites. Altogether recommendable!
This is a real good hotel, friendly staff and the rooms are kept clean! Too bad it's not closer to a village or city. I got used to the noise of the highway at some point, but I kept hearing some kind of pump by the pool. Breakfast was fine.
