    Typewriters & Clocks

    Cool display of artifacts in the lobby and around. Old style rooms, but functional. Limited parking.

    The hotel room was nice and clean with all the facilities and the service is very nice. The hotel definitively could benefit from redecoration.

    It was awful experience. I couldn't stay at hotel because I was in hospital. Even though I informed them a week ago, they told me they can't cancel the reservation. I don't want to recommend this hotel to anyone!!

    Very clean, efficient service, good breakfast options. Decor dated but intentional antiques everywhere, rooms up to spec so not a problem

    Lovely hotel in Novara

    Really beautiful room and hotel. So lovely, did not feel like leaving it. However, no bars or restaurants locally.

    Great Hotel with character

    Lovely old fashioned unique hotel. Different to the chain hotels that all look the same. Large comfortable room, enormous bathroom. Friendly Staff. Good breakfasts with plenty of choice. Small problems when we first arrived, but they quickly sorted for us. Only negative thing I can say is that the shower wasn't very powerful, and the tiled floor in the shower was very slippery when wet. Needs a rubber mat

    Very quiet hotel, old fashioned but quite quaint. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Menu didn't suit me personally but staff provided an alternative.

    Very quiet hotel, no outside noise at all.

    Deceptively good hotel in a back street. Delightful decor from yesteryear. Very obliging and pleasant staff. More staff at reception would have been welcome though. Beds were comfortable and the food of a high standard.
