I stayed here with family for four nights. We used this as a base for visiting friends in the area. The location of this hotel is superb. Very easy to find from motorway and easy to get to local destinations. First impressions were superb. The hotel looks lovely and the reception area is tasteful and spotless. We had booked a triple room and there was more than enough room for three people. Again, the room was spotless and the bathroom was spacious, with good selection of toiletries. The mini fridge was very useful as it was very warm during our stay. Air conditioning worked a treat. The only slight downside was the wifi was not very reliable and kept losing connection. The room was cleaned daily to a high standard. The selection available at breakfast was more than adequate and well presented. The staff were lovely and always available when needed. Although the hotel was near a busy road, I found it quiet enough and had no problem sleeping. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as a base for exploring this beautiful area. The price was very reasonable for this standard of hotel.

The hotel property is so beautiful and unique that I can't describe into words. It's a little village, converted into a hotel. I got the room in the former palazzo, very interesting. They have their vineyard and tasting room. I did wine tasting on the property; their wines are superb. This location is very remote and is not walking distance to the next civilization. Reservations for dinner at nearby village are highly recommended. This property is suitable for people who want to relax 100%.

We had a great holiday based at "the old paper mill", whizzing around Tuscany in Florence (our hired Fiat 500 who did sterling work up and down and around the hills and winding roads). Colle is a good base if you prefer to stay in "real" Italy, and is close enough to the touristy bits (Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra etc) for days out. The hotel staff are great - friendly and helpful, and they didn't laugh at my amateur Italiano! Our room was clean and comfy with a lovely view of the old town.
The hotel is easy to find if you call the hotel and ask for the address to enter into gps, the address on Expedia is not good enough if you are using GPS Tom Tom Device. We easily found the hotel, it is very close to Siena and it was great. The people who run the hotel are very warm and friendly and speak English. The hotel exterior is beautiful and the interior is lovely. The facility is not 'new' it is NOT supposed to be it was built in 1700, the atmosphere shows the age of the building and it has a tremendous amount of character. The outside grounds are lovely, the pool is great, the flowers and landscaping are wonderful. I did not want to leave, we stayed one night and I wanted to extend our stay, but we could not. I would stay there for weeks, the feeling of the place and the character alone makes a trip to this hotel worthwhile.
The hotel is set in an amazing location with beautiful views, in a very old church. Rooms are fairly good sized & comfortable, though not luxurious. Shuttle service to the bottom of the hill is available @10am & back up @6pm, which is great but you must ask the night prior.
Know that you take bus #37 to Florence; the stop is across the street at the store Il Bottai, and tickets are 2 euros on the bus/1.20 if you buy from a store. You must validate them in the machine on the bus. Coming back, watch for the stop for "il bottai" and the shuttle picks you up by the wine shop (which has some amazing deals). One staff member (Andrea, waiter/front desk) was outstanding - friendly, helpful, attentive. Some of the others a bit surly or unwilling to assist. Breakfast buffet was perfect, dinners in restaurant were a bit spendy but outstanding food. Overall an amazing and romantic place if you want to base your Florence adventure a bit outside the city.
