Summary: this lovely hotel is located in a village outside of the well known towns of the Piemonte. While the village itself is unremarkable it is dominated by the historical building that houses this hotel. In addition, the grounds are extensive with a lovely pool.

Rooms: The rooms are furnished to a very good level. While not opulent the quality of furnishings is good and extremely comfortable. The rooms are quite spacious and have modern fixtures. There was plenty of room to for a couple sets of golf clubs and about 8 cases of wine that we bought during our trip. Bathrooms are updated with new fixtures/baths and showers.

Restaurant/Bars: We ate one evening at the hotel restaurant. The dining room is spacious and modern. The restaurant, while quite good it is nothing too outstanding. In a region known for its food and wine, there are many other restaurants whose combination of location/ambience and charm are a considerably better alternative to the hotel restaurant. However, don't get me wrong; on the evening we arrived the hotel restaurant was perfect solution to a long day's ride. There is a bar in the hotel which was very lovely, offering both indoor and outdoor seating. A perfect place for a cozy nightcap.

Facilities: There is a spa located on the lower level of the hotel as well as a gym. The gym has modern equipment a one of each of the most popular type machines. We did not do the spa, but unfortunately because of its location (along a subterranean hallway), it does not have the 'haven' appeal that many hotel spas have. We walked through the spa areas and they were not particularly attractive.

Staff and Service: Excellent! The staff were very helpful at check-in, offering lots of information on the area and making good suggestions for local restaurants. The staff was very obliging and pleasant at reception, the bar, in the restaurant and in the breakfast room. From a service perspective, this hotel is unusually good.

Room Tip: First floor facing the gardens for a good view

This was a lovely, relaxing hotel just a few minute drive from Bra. The grounds are really beautiful and it was great to be able to enjoy their pool and spa. It's very centrally located and only a 20-30 minute drive to Alba, Barolo, La Morra, Barbaresco and Neive. The restaurant is also really good!

Room Tip: I'd request a room on the 1st floor, the views from the second floor rooms are obscured by the r...

We were there with a large group of cyclists. The rooms were excellent. Food was good however we had a set menu and service was rather slow. The facilities are first class and you must visit the wine cellars. This hotel is also part of the university of gastronomy

This beautifully renovated hotel (formerly the palace of the House of Savoy) is in the ideal location for touring the wine country in Italy. Barolo is just a few miles away. The grounds are immaculate and the rooms impeccable. This hotel is also home to the Gastronomic University in Italy. The hotel restaurant uses the chef from the cooking school and the food is some of the best in all of Europe! It also has an underground wine bank that is definitely worth touring. The staff is warm and welcoming as well. Everything about this hotel is ideal!
