What a find. The drive to the top of the town was an adventure and the view across the valley looking over Assisi and Perugia was stunning. I wish we had stayed there more than one night. The rooms were modern and comfortable. The staff friendly and helpful. This is a small town with only a few shops but the quaintness was welcoming. The on site restaurant was small but very good. The breakfast was the best we had on our trip to Italy. The Perugia chocolate factory tour close by was a lot of fun.
We have travelled extensively and this is a real value for money find. I have read the other reviews some are a little harsh. I look first to see if the place is clean and tidy. Here it is spotless this is a very old building but not a cobweb around. Rooms are simply furnished practical and clean. TV, fridge, desk, wardrobe. We would have liked a bath but the shower was clean and water hot. The pool is not an olympic size but ok if you wish to cool off or exercise. The staff are super friendly and efficient. We wanted an extra blanket and that was delivered within a minute of me getting back to the room. That is service. The food menu is not extensive but will keep you happy for the week, and is beautifully cooked and presented, I congratulate the kitchen staff excellent service. The ravioli is outstanding. Luigi head waiter is great with the wine tasting and knowledge of the area excellent. (Vetunna wine visit a must local and cheap we have shipped 72 bottles £3.40 a bottle). The rooms are super quiet I guess 2ft thick walls help. We have had a great stay and would happily recommend this hotel as a base to stay to explore the area. The views are great, but make sure you have a hire car. The village has one bar, one church and one other restaurant, which was closed whilst we were here.
Generally short of staff, but the head waiter - Luigi - was excellent and helped to make the place enjoyable. The pasta dishes were good but the menu lacked creativity and variety. Location is very close to the centre of small town and Guiseppi's bar.
We have just returned from a lovely break at Relais La Cortedi Bettona. There are two special things about this place. Firstly, the setting. Situated on a hilltop this historic 13th century hotel has outstanding views across the Umbrian countryside which are stunning. The second thing is the outstanding care from all of the staff. Each and every one made sure that our holiday was superb. We cannot thank them enough. If you get the opportunity to visit please do, it is such a lovely place to relax and unwind.
The room was very dark and the lighting poor. The air conditioning barely functioning so it was very hot. the hotel provided a fan that also barely worked. The pool was tiny and in the shade most of the morning with a total of 4 sunbeds. The restaurant menu was pretty short and about half the items were not included in the half board menu. If you wanted something not included they charged half the full price rather than a supplement, which I thought rather mean. The menu only changed on one day with 2 specials that day.Otherwise it was chicken breast or roast pork every day. Bit dull for my taste although all the food was well cooked and tasty. Spectacular views across to Assisi and Perugia. Tiny hill top town with 2 other restaurants only open at the weekend.
We stayed for a week in June. We booked via Fleetway and paid for a Junior Suite as we were in need of a comfortable restful holiday. However ..... this is a hotel that was probably quite good but has really lost it's way - cutting corners where ever it can. Our room was a good size with ensuite bathroom. Very clean with a small 'minibar' ie a little fridge with nothing in it. The room was very dark as the building is old with small windows. We had hoped for a nice view but we looked onto the street - dull. The lights were wierd and too low just two bedside lights and one standard lamp and difficult to operate. The air conditioning was hopeless and we asked for a fan which did help a bit but it is very hot in June and we found it very difficult to sleep. We arrived late on a Friday and soap and shower gel were not replaced until I asked on Tuesday if we could have some more as we had run out completely. Bed was not changed for the whole stay. These details really matter to some of us. There was no comfortable chair to sit in in the room just a couple of straight backed dining chairs. We had a half board deal, the food is nice but absolutely no change in the menu all week, so there are three main courses - pork or turkey or chicken. Personally hate turkey. You pay 5 euros for a very small plate of vegetables and there are no salads at all on offer. Much of the menu is off limits for those on half board so that if you want those items you pay extra. When I asked about the vegetables I was told that they are a course so I didn't have to pay for them if I didn't have a main course with them!! If you want beef or lamb which are the other options for a main then you pay for them on top. On our last night we thought we would order the beef but unfortunately they then said they didn't have any so pork it was - again! Lunch menu is same as dinner. The pasta dishes on the menu were again very limited but very nice. Wine is expensive considering how much it is in the shops and water is 3 euros a bottle. The pool is right on top of the restaurant with 5 very uncomfortable sun beds with no towels provided, no waiter service and no mattresses on the metal beds. The pool is really what I would call a plunge pool. The four sunbeds are in shadow till the afternoon when the sun comes around. The views from the restaurant terrace are fantastic, it is worth going to just see the view but my advice would be just stay one or two nights and move on or even just have a nice lunch and move on.. There is a terrace higher up with sunbeds but no shade at all so really baking hot and again no towels, mattresses or waiter service. Bettona is very pretty but very small. The bar on the main square is fine for a drink but expensive (9 euros for 2 beers) and very local, no food. The restaurants in the town only open at the weekends so nowhere to go out to without getting in the car. Driving is ok but it is difficult to work out the streets when you first get there as they have a one way system. It would be really helpful to get a map when you first book. Parking is challenging as there is little available in the town. The staff are friendly and helpful within the limits set by the owners. I had a cookery lesson with one of the chefs who was great and really enjoyed that.
This hotel is charming, in an old building that obviously has a great history and the rooms are really beautiful. We had a basic room on the top floor, plenty of space, nice bathroom, with good shower. There was plenty of hanging space for clothes but not much shelf space or drawers for other items. The bed seemed hard when you first lay down but it was comfortable. The air conditioning was not available during our stay, so if this is important to you, check before you book. The hotel has a lift so no lugging heavy bags upstairs. The staff were mostly very good, we were offered great advice on places to go by the very nice Dutch lady who appeared to be the manager, thanks to her we had a really great day out in Gubbio on a festival day. Luigi, the restaurant manager, was a very busy man, this could not be said of the other male waiter who was able to walk past tables that needed clearing several times without noticing them. Food was very nice, even though the menu is limited and never varied. NOTE: if you are booking via a travel agent who offer half board, be aware that you will need to spend quite a lot on "extras" such as vegetables, and there was a very limited choice of these. The unheated pool and area around it are both very small. As is often the case, it appeared that some guests chose to set their alarms so that they could "book" their seats using towels. I wish hotels would restrict this practice generally. There are several other terraces with seating and sunbathing areas and one of my most enjoyable times was sitting on the upper terrace looking over the Umbrian countryside as the light faded, with a soft breeze easing the 30 degree heat of the day. There is a negative- which is not in the control of the hotel- barking dogs! Most nights we were disturbed through the night by the dogs in the area barking for extended periods. I would definitely stay here again, but would not recommend the half board option. The hotel is ideally situated to explore this part of Umbria, being close to Perugia, Assisi, and some fantastic countryside and lakes.
Lovely hotel in the quietest hill town with magnificent views. A truly relaxed place with friendly staff. The room was great, if the light switching system a little eccentric, a learning curve for a day or two. The dining experience is classy if a touch expensive if not on a package booking. This is a Retreat that requires you have your own hire car, and then the wonderful surrounding area and towns become easily reachable. The railways down on the plain are cheap, clean and on time.
Found ourselves at this hotel by default. Our tour operator moved our whole group when our original booked hotel was deemed unfit. This hotel rose to the occasion in the most magnificent manner. Located in a quiet hill top town this is a great place to spend some time, it is spotlessly clean, spacious, well appointed and the staff are wonderful, helpful and always friendly. Food is good too. There are a number of terraces with fine views towards Assisi and Perugia and the view from the west facing dining room is fantastic, great sunset views. If there is any criticism, it is rather a long way from Rome airport but I understand flights from Stansted do go into Perugia, an airport visible from the hotel, also a hire car would be advisable as there is no viable public transport to and from this town. If one person has to be singled out as standing head above all others it would have to be Sophia den Broeder, the front desk manager, without her help our holiday would not have been the success it was. Would go back again without a second thought.
This is a lovely well run traditional hotel in the hilltop village of Bettona. Our room was nicely furnished although the fridge never seemed to get any colder than the room. Plenty of storage space and spotlessly clean. The food was excellent particularly breakfast which was a Continental buffet with plenty of choice. The staff are very helpful and very friendly despite us not being able to speak a word of Italian! Bettona is tiny and quite remote so a car is essential if staying more than a couple of days. I would highly recommend this hotel particularly if you are able to fly into Perugia Airport.
