“A little jewel in the Langhe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

We spent there a long weekend with a group of friends. The hotel is lovely, the rooms and bathrooms are roomy and except for the television that in my opinion was too small, I had no complaints! The restaurant is superb, we had an amazing dinner and the breakfast is excellent. The morning I left I had sunny side up eggs with truffle! The gym is not up to par, but the sauna, the steam bath and the hot tub are really good. There is an outside heated pool that a friend of mine enjoyed, but for me was not warm enough!

We had a delightful four night stay! Very accomodating friendly and efficient staff. We had a lovely suite with a biew of ths snow covered Alps in the distance. Big bathroom with walk-in shower. Nice decor, free wifi, flat screen TVs. We loved the restaurant. Excellent food with regional specialties and others. We loved the white truffle additions, and the traditional menu was excellent one night with the ravioli del plin and brasata. Reasonably priced Piemontese wines with many choices. Excellent friendly service. Beautiful bar area with fireplace. Very nice included breakfast buffet complete with cheese, meats, smoked salmon, seven minute eggs, all the usual choices, in a nice area overlooking a patio. Nice outside heated pool with inside access/hot tub area still functioning in November. About 20 minute mostly easy drive from center square in Alba (Piazza Savona) with some hairpins as you do the last few km, but well marked and became a no-brainer as we travelled around to the various hill towns and wineries for tastings and other meals. You are going to have to deal with hairpin climbs wherver you go in the area outside of Alba. We loved being out in the country. We were able to get to Barolo, Monforte, Serralunga, Castiglina Fellato, and Barbaresco within pretty much a half hour drive. Great place, and we look forward to returning!

Room Tip: We loved our second floor suite facing toward Alba and the Alps.

Came here with some girlfriends during the truffle fair. Proximity to everything was really great so the location of the hotel is perfect.
The grounds are absolutely beautiful and although there is a pool with sauna/jacuzzi we were too busy drinking and eating to get to enjoy it all.
Rooms are quite large and comfortable, and the breakfast is simple but delicious with two tables having a spectacular view overlooking the valley.
Also, I very much enjoyed the decor of the hotel and the lounge area.
However, I think what struck me the most was Silvio, the wonderful manager of the hotel. We encountered a bit of an issue the first night that left our group a little unhappy but he really was sincerely apologetic and did everything he could to make it better and he did an amazing job! We were so impressed by his very proactive "above and beyond" attitude and genuineness in making sure all his guests are completely taken care of. Also, his very extensive knowledge of the food and wines in the region is very impressive so make sure to pick his brain.

The rest of our stay went very well - I would definitely like to come back and stay during the spring.
Tip: Make sure you book wineries in advance as sometimes they fill up and ask for confirmation of the booking.

This hotel has a very good location if you plan to visit the vineyards and famous surrounding villages like Alba, Asti, etc. It. mixes luxury and rustic at the same time. The food is great (it has a one Michelin start restaurant). It is not a big hotel, which makes you feel kind of at home. The rooms are not very big, so do not bring to much luggage. Also, it is about 8km (5 miles) from Alba, which means that you have to take a taxi ir car to commute. But it is really worth it.

This was our third trip in as many years and our expectations continue to be met. The hotel nestles just below the pretty village of Benevello, about 20 minutes from Alba. With stunning views of the Alps in the distance (on clear days), the hotel is a marvellous place to relax and unwind and is a perfect location in the truffle season. Service is unfussy, efficient and charming, the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the food delicious. The bar is a great place to relax on chilly days and the courtyard, restaurant terrace and swimming pool perfect when the weather is warm. The Michelin starred restaurant maintains a consistently high standard although a little extra variety would be welcome. Breakfast is self service with a good and varied choice. The wine list has a relatively extensive selection of local wines, all reasonably priced.

Room Tip: If you do not like stairs ask for a room with a view and direct access to the courtyard

We stayed for three nights over the August bank holiday weekend and had a brilliant time. We had dinner in the gourmet restaurant on the first night, which I highly recommend. Further, all the staff go out of their way to be helpful. The winery tours they organised were excellent.

This hotel is located close to Alba in the hills of Piedmont and althouh getting there takes a while, the trip is well worth it. We went as a family of four in July. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful and Silvio the hotel manager is close to amazing. No porter, he helps out, wine-tasting you say, then he gives a very competent assessment and points you in the right direction. That hands-on approach is what makes this hotel really good.
The rooms are very comfortable, we had one with a view of the hills which was very nice. Breakfast is very good, and although it is true that there are no hot dishes, there is so much other selection that we didn't miss it. As for the restaurants, the Easy restaurant has good food but I would not recommend going there becaue it is in an awkward room without a terrace which in summer is not really convenient. The main restaurant is excellent, perhaps a bit pricey but the quality and creativity of the food are worth it. I am not so up on my PIedmont wines, but the ones we had after consulting with the staff were all very good.
All in all, we found this place to be a great starting point to discover the Piedmont and would definitely come back again

Room Tip: If you have rooms 108 and 109, they have a great view but early in the morning you might hear some c...
