Montorio is a beautiful venue with a 360 view of Montepulciano. The location is amazing as it's located on the top of the hill with 20 minutes walk to the city centre and different wine tasting places.
The room we stayed in had a smell as if hadn't been used in a while, my fiance had to open all the doors and windows to get some ventilation and sunlight in, there were tons of spider webs between wooden frames on the ceiling and some windows. There were few mosquitos as well, whose bites were big and painful.
The good part was that the sheets were clean, toilet was clean and we were provided with a little basket for breakfast. The owner was pleasant during the check in time and we were impressed with her recommendation tips for restaurants and things to do in town, we were told the check out time was between 10:30 and 11am latest, which was fine until the next morning. We were half packed and and ready to leave by 11am when she came in at 10:30 and started poking her head asking us when we were leaving. At 10:50 she basically stood outside our room looking at what we were doing, came in whist my fiance was packing to look into the kitchen ( which was left clean and all used dishes were washed. This is keeping in mind that all our bags were already in the car and my fiance was making the bed and putting last bits and pieces into her handbag.
This left us uncomfortable as we had to rush and had the feeling that we had to get out, just to confirm there weren't people standing outside ready to check in or anything and we were leaving at the given time. I understand if we were running around unpacked or still sleeping which would have caused a delay, but this was not the case.
My advise to future visitors, bring your own anti mosquito spray and leave by 10am to avoid an unpleasant attitude.
