    We stayed here for 4 nights after 3 hectic days in Rome. We knew it was going to be peaceful and we were definitely not disappointed! The surrounding countryside is beautiful with pretty scenery to enjoy whilst relaxing around the pool, which has waiter service that I thought was a nice touch.We usually enjoy visiting different restaurants but we knew being quite remote that we would probably end up eating all of our meals at the resort. The prospect of such fresh food excited us and we were not disappointed in any way, shape or form. The food was quite simply delicious made with the freshest of ingredients - we saw the tomatoes and herbs picked straight from the resort. There is talk of them exporting their wine and I really hope they do because it was fantastic and very reasonably priced.We didn't have a car because we knew we just wanted to relax after a busy few days in Rome. You can go out for walks from the hotel but if you want to see more of Umbria you will need to hire a car.This place is definitely a gem and if we ever go back to Umbria we would stay again without any hesitation.

    Stayed a day with friends and at last felt the real Italian spirit. Delicious food, nice interior, little gardens with so many colourful flowers...and, of course, the pool overlooking the greenish Umbria from above, was amazing. Recommend for honeymoons and middle-aged people who seek peace and nature.

    Stayed 4 days, and had an absolutely great time! The grounds are just beautiful, I enjoyed many a good walk exploring the surroundings. The accommodations are just superb, and the bed was so comfortable. It is hard to choose, but my favorite part was the whole dining experience. The food is absolutely marvelous, most of the produces grown in the hotel itself added a whole new dimension to an already scrumptious dining experience. I have visited Italy many times, but i have to say that the restaurant with its own brand of wine was definitely my favorite culinary experience. The staff was super friendly and accommodating without being invasive. The place just has a relaxed ambience that was extremely welcoming. Absolutely reccommend it!

    We stayed at Griffins Resort for 10 nights in September, it was an amazing vacation for us. Everything was perfect the food and our accommodations It is hard to put into words how unbelievable the service from the staff here is, always friendly and helpful they all go the extra mile to fulfill any request you may have. By the end of our visit we felt like part of the Griffin "family". We were very sad to leave.

    With special thanks to Stefania, Vanessa, Chiara and Silvana an extra special thanks to Chef and Yuri for many special moments and last but not least our very own Giuseppe who has given us so many special memories of our stay in Orvieto and who will remain in our hearts.

    We stayed here for four nights in July 2014. Two families of four, with kids between 10 and 12 years old and had a great relaxing stay. Uri and Giuseppe and the rest of the staff ensured that we were always comfortable and well fed. The food was great, breakfast was wonderful each morning with cappuccino and espresso, and the dinners were creative and well prepared.Sitting by the pool was relaxing for the adults and swimming was fun for the kids. We hiked the trail across the road, and took some wonderful day trips into Orvietto and Todi. We also had a great meal at Restorante di Giorgio, a few minutes away in Morrano Nuovo. I would definitely return.

    We enjoyed a lovely two night stay at griffins. It is a beautiful resort, and the service second to none! We were so well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. We left early for a tour one day and they packed us a fantastic picnic spread take. The restaurant is also excellent - we ate there both nights as we enjoyed it so much!

    Just spent five wonderful days at Griffin's Resort. We had two superior rooms at the front of the building - they were spotlessly clean, individually designed to a very high standard and of a very decent size. The jacuzzi in the bathroom was an unexpected bonus. The setting is really lovely - you overlook the green and fertile rolling Umbrian hills with mountains in the far distance. The 'infinity' swimming pool measures 22 x 10.5 metres - there are plenty of sun-loungers and umbrellas to make for a luxury experience. Each day by the pool we ate delicious lunches, the contents of which were nearly all grown in the gardens at the Resort. Dinner each night in the restaurant enhanced the experience even further. Traditional dishes were prepared with great care by the chef - there was lots of choice on the menu and the quality of presentation was exceptionally good. While the wine list was extensive, we tended to concentrate on the Resort's home-made reds and whites which were gorgeous. All in all a culinary delight and at very good value for money. As if all this were not enough we'd be remiss if we did not mention the brilliant care and attention we received from Giuseppi - his passion for the food and wine and his willingness to share it with us, the welcome he provided throughout our stay, and his complete professionalism in all matters made it a holiday we'll never forget and one which we hope to repeat as soon as we possibly can.

    A beautiful, well kept place with great gardens and magnificent surroundings. Great service, good food in the restaurant and really nice staff. Found it by chance when we were driving by, booked for one night but ended up staying for two

    What a joy to find that our booking through living social vouchers was such a gem! We booked in for a two night stay on our way up country and enjoyed it so much that we booked to return on the homeward bound leg.

    The hotel is a beautiful restored Umbrian home with fab views of the rolling, stunning countryside. The grounds and infinity pool are immaculately presented in a romantic and informal style; lavender, herbs and fruit abound.

    The interior easily matched the standard of the grounds and the two rooms we stayed in were stylishly presented with luxury bathrooms and gorgeous plush mattresses. Everything was immaculate and attention to detail and craftsmanship was top notch.

    The staff were attentive without being intrusive, professional and friendly. Especially Yuri and Guiseppe from management and hospitality. We stayed both when the hotel was busy and when it was just us! Both experiences were wonderful. However the team went the extra mile when we were on our own and I can honestly say we were spoiled!

    The food was delicious with everything made fresh and with local produce. They produce their own wine, olive oil, jams from their fruit and honey- yummy! We were constantly surprised by the lovely little touches, which were so thoughtful. We had lovely local meats and cheeses with our G & T s. The chefs focaccia was a delight. He even rustled us up some delicious croquettes to go with our pre meal prossecco. The dessert platters which are individual tasters when we felt we could manage no more; persuaded us to reach for the spoons and did not disappoint.

    We felt so rested when we left and we are still feeling the benefit a month later. That has never happened before. We feel very fortunate to have found Griffins in it's early days as a boutique hotel. We feel we probably wouldn't be able to afford it at a later date. I hope it goes on to be very successful. That said there was talk about cookery courses, if that is so, then I will return with some friends to learn from the master.
