We stayed at the Ultimo Mulino for five nights. What a lovely place, though you will need a good sat nav to find it, and a car is essential for getting around! The hotel is a converted mill, very tastefully done, with lovely rooms and public areas. The staff are genuinely friendly and helpful, particularly Alesso who doubles as receptionist and part time waiter in the evenings, and is always keen to give information about the hotel or places to visit. We would definitely recommend this hotel!

If your going to visit any of the nearby towns likes Sienna , Lucca or take a winery tour you might as well experience a place like this. Maybe not this exact place but some other converted farmhouse might be better. We didn't book this place ourselves it was booked by our agency as part of a larger tour. All the other 4-5 star hotels and Bnb we stayed in were home runs.. but not this one. They converted an old mill into a BnB. The outside looks very quaint, inside the rooms aren't anything special, they could use a polishing and maybe a face lift, and the air condition barely worked and their was no screen on the window so we couldn't keep it open at night. The people working there were the least friendly or likable compared to the other 4 hotels we stayed during our vacation. I got the "we don't like Americans vibe here". The food was very good, (but then again all the food in Italy is very good) although a bit overpriced but your in the middle of no where with no immediate options to eat anywhere else. The creepy thing was that all the other guests whispered during dinner.. it was way too quiet. The pool was a nice addition, again nothing special but gave you a bit of something to do other than just sit and drink wine and whisper. Thankfully we only spent a few hours each night here since we were busy touring all day. I won't go back or suggest that any Americans stay there, we kind of felt unwanted by the staff. Maybe they don't like Americans, maybe they just don't like fat guys. I don't know. Thank God we met a nice Australian couple we had fun with for a few hours who we were able to converse with at our normal adult outside voices. The one thing that didn't disappoint me about this place was if you like a nice big steak this is the right place for you eat dinner at their restaurant other than that I give this place a C- overall. That being said Tuscany was so great that this little hiccup didn't ruin our visit. I highly recommend Americans visit this region.

Dear Guest,

We are sorry that your stay did not achieve your expectation.
We want just to say that Americans are welcome, we host with pleasure guest from all over the world.
Anyway we know that Americans love to stay in city center so we are glad to suggest our properties in Radda in Chianti, Palazzo Leopoldo or in Colle di Val d'Elsa, Palazzo San Lorenzo.
Cordially,
The Staff of Ultimo Mulino

My wife, eight year old son and I stayed here on Tuesday 29 August 2017. We were in the area to see Siena but chose to stay outside the city. This looked ideal. It was about half an hour's drive from Siena and totally off the beaten track. What a find!

Check in was quick and we were made to feel welcome. Note that the car park is set back (approx. 70-80m) from the hotel, so if you are travelling with heavy, or a lot of luggage, I would recommend you drive up to the entrance, unload there and then drive back to the car park.

We stayed in a family room (Room No. 8) on the 1st Floor. You could access the room internally via a steep staircase or externally up a ramp to aid the transport of luggage.

The room had been well maintained and was fully of rustic character. It was a little on the small side, but sufficient for our needs. The window looked out on to a secluded garden. Although the main road was nearby, there was very little noise.

The room had a tv, electronic safe, tv, complimentary wifi - a must in the area if you need the internet.

We had a lovely continental breakfast in the courtyard in the morning. The chef also offered to cook eggs.

We made use of the outdoor swimming pool. This was accessed from a set of steps, which led up to a secluded veranda with sun loungers and a long, narrow(ish) pool. As we were the only people using the pool on the Tuesday afternoon, it was great.

If you're planning on visiting Siena but want to stay outside the city, this would be an ideal spot.

So quiet and relaxing. The pool was lovely, the staff friendly and helpful, the food was just what Tuscan country cooking should be (actually a bit more refined than I imagined). The rooms are rustic but with modern comforts. I recommend L'Ultimo Mulino for anyone that wants to escape the chaos and heat of the city

Staff here were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed their company and the chef is really good. You must try the T-bone steak in their restaurant. On Thursdays they have a BBQ and this for us was brilliant!

Our room was a good size and the bathroom was huge. Wish they would fix the leaking shower, but we were provided with extra towels.

We would recommend this place for sure, but you must have a car (we had a rental luckily)

The pool is also great.

Room Tip: We had room 1 (one) it is the most private in summer on the Patio
