We arrived 6th October for five nights We stayed in room 121 with fabulous views. the barking dogs below were in no way inconvenient. The bedroom and bathroom was very well appointed and generous in size. Clean and tidy with quality toiletries. The bed linen was changed every day - very impressed!! We spent the majority of our stay sitting by the pool looking across the valleys and admining the secluded houses perched on the hillsides.
We can understand the criticisms regarding food quality. The quality was more than acceptable, using local influences in the preparations of each meal including Wild Boar and Black Sausages. Sadly the desserts were a bought-in frozen product of mediocre quality. I am surprised that members of the kitchen team could not prepare two famous Italian desserts fresh each day. A good quality home-made Tiramisu would contribute to improving customer reviews.
We enjoyed the visit to the wine tasting on our doorstep. Louigi from the hotel was conducting the show-round by the owners who do not speak any English. Visiting Umbria in early October coincides with the harvest of the vines and we witnessed the grapes being processed into juice to begin the process of fermentation. Luigi was very informative, knowledgeable and was genuinely interested in ensuring that we understood the wine's journey from vine to bottle.
We would have no hesitation to recommend Relais il Canalicchio for a peace and quiet holiday and we ortunity to return again in the future.

The hotel is in a beautiful location, though remote (I should not like to be here without a car) and the view from the terrace is wonderful. Our room was good and the swimming pool was good, though the plastic chairs were uncomfortable.
The vast majority of the guests were British, not an Italian in sight, and most of them had booked through a travel company. We had the impression that the company was "squeezing" the hotel. The food at dinner was at best mediocre and breakfast was poor: poor quality meats and cheese, weak coffee, watery juice. This was the worst breakfast we had during our 4 week stay in Italy and far from the cheapest.
Drinks in the bar were more expensive than most places we went. The restaurant had no wine by the glass, only bottles.
The whole place lacked ambiance and authenticity. This is a great shame, as it could be so much better if they just upped their game a bit.

Dear ChrisBedfordshire, thank you very much for your review. We are sorry that your stay here was not good. The hotel is a medieval castle and it is your personal opinion that there is not ambience and authenticity (these are the two peculiarities that distinguish our hotel from each other). We have 56 rooms all different from each others, and the Guests are coming from every corner of the world thanks to our Sales Department and the Management with several years of experience. If your problem was the food,you could ask to the restaurant staff having different dishes. Our Chef is very attentive to all the Guests needs. Concerning the drinks issue: from the bar and the restaurant is it possible to purchase a glass of red white or rose wine. We beg you please to advice us next time when you are stille here, and we will for sure try to solve the troubles. Best regards, Relais il Canalicchio**** Michelangelo Scannapieco General Manager

The hotel is beautifully situated atop a hill with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. The restaurant has a wonderful panorama. We did not try the swimming pools or gym facilities but came armed with tennis racquets as a tennis court was advertised. Unfortunately the court is in dire need of repair and maintenance. My husband did manage to play a little but it was not satisfactory. Our "Classic" room was comfortable if a little small. The staff were pleasant and friendly. It is absolutely necessary to have a car as the hotel is quite remote. If you don't have your own car and you want to visit the surrounding area and towns you have to pay fairly high prices to go on organised trips.
The most disappointing thing for us was the food. We were on half board and were looking forward to some nice Italian meals in the evening. Breakfast was acceptable
but at dinner the food was simply not up to standard and we had the feeling a lot of it was bought in and simply heated up. That is why we can't give more than an average rating for this property.

What a fantastic weeks holiday. After arriving at the hotel via the hotels shuttle from Perugia Airport we were delighted to be informed that we had been upgraded from a Classic Room to a Luxury Country Suite. We had a large bedroom with kingsize bed, a separate lounge with a three seater settee and arm chair and dining table. Unfortunately the kitchen was locked away in a cupboard. The bathroom was well appointed with all the necessities. This complex was a few hundred yards from the main hotel with its own pool. All the staff without exception were fantastic and couldn’t do enough for the guests. I could name some but that would be unfair to the rest. Some people have complained about the food at the hotel but we were full board and all the 18 meals we had were delicious, some of the best food we’ve had in Italy. Some guests decided to try the restaurant at the bottom of the hill, as recommended by some reviewers, but thought that the food provided was nowhere near as good as at the hotel, the only positive comment was that the wine was cheaper. The hotel is a superb building at the top of a hill with fantastic views over swathes of Umbria. We didn’t have a car so used the transfer facilities provided by the hotel. We visited Perugia and Assisi as well as attending a wine tasting and cookery course which were supposed to be free but cost a total of €110 for two for transport and food costs. That is something we’ll be taking up with Fleetway Travel. Yet again we had a fantastic weeks holiday.

Dear Sirs, many thanks for your kind review. Your opinion for us is very important. We are glad that you enjoy your vacancy here in Canalicchio. Concerning the kitchenette in the room, we inform as usual all the Guests that if they need it there is an extra supplement to pay at the departure, if the guests do not want to pay it we close the kitchen corner with a key. We also inform the guests that we provide kettle in the room for free. It was enough to ask at the reception desk to have it. About the transfers facilities, we specify at the moment of the reservation that there is an enxtra cost and the guests decide if proceed or not, we do not force anybody to reserve the transfers at all. Also about the cooking class, is for free if only watch, but if you want partecipate in first person, you have to buy the ingredients and then you eat what you have done in the restaurant as a lunch. Is our normal procedure to inform the Guests at the moment of the confirmation too. We thank you very much for your presence here, we hope that you will be back one day. Best regards, Relais il Canalicchio**** Michelangelo Scannapieco General Manager

I stayed during September and the pools were open for swimming. However the water temperature was a bit chilly. But talk to the hotel for conformation. Also try the small family cafe just outside the hotel entrance for lunch. Good food.
