Dissapointed, do not expect a 4 star experience!Posted Sep 23, 2013
Air con out of action so had to leave window open during night and woke up with insect bites. Pool area not for public use due to function during our stay. Bed also gave us terrible back ache during first night and they offered another room with only a slightly better night.

Lovely old-world atmosphere - if you can find it!Posted Jul 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Efficient service, but air conditioning in our room needed improvement. Excellent breakfast, and the minibus shuttle to Florence city centre was very convenient. Beautiful grounds, and so refreshing to have a swimming pool in the hotel garden. Signposting needs urgent attention - there were no direction signs to the hotel in the town of Siesto Florentino - despite what it said in the details supplied with the booking.

Beautiful propertyPosted Jul 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stunning property, enjoyed our stay! If we didn't have a car, it would have been a lot more difficult to get around, although the bus stop was a 10 min walk away. We enjoyed the serenity of the place and being outside of Florence. Staff were inconsistant... You either got amazing service where the staff couldn't do enough for you, or you had to chase people down just to get a coffee at breakfast. I would definitely recommend Villa Stanley, the gardens were amazing, pool was lovely and the rooms were very good.

Beautiful little villa off the beaten path, and away from any overly touristy locations. Cab rides expensive to get anywhere. Well worth the extra euros for the authentic old Italian history. The pool does not open until may-June sometime and only open until September. Don't expect to be lounging by the pool if you travel in the winter months.

Beautiful estatePosted Apr 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
Everything was OK except the mattresses need replacement, like sleeping on a cot.

AmazingPosted Jul 9, 2012
Best hotel we've ever been to! Beautiful both inside and outside the hotel grounds. Quiet and very relaxing. Mostly old couples but we're only 20 and still thoroughly enjoyed it. Perfect if you don't mind catching the train around Tuscany. Only 15 minutes to Florence, 90 minutes to Pisa and 120 minutes to Sienna. Only downside is the price of the restaurant, meaning we had to go into Sesto or Florence to eat every night, but we would have done that anyway. If you're thinking about choosing this hotel don't wait any longer and book it!!!! Also, the Ulivo Rosso restaurant up the hill was absolutely amazing, perfect for a romantic meal with traditional tuscan food and wine. Be careful of the tourist tax you have to pay when checking out though, 1 Euro per person per night per star. (56 Euros for a couple staying 7 nights here)
