Again, a fantastic stay in this gothic castle in the middle of the renowned Barolo region with the lovely hosts Giusy and Maurizio. The hotel is on a hill and surrounds the - in fall - foggy wineyards of the - in our eyes - best grape ever: Nebbiolo. Il Castello is well maintained and has a magic athmosphere. The... More

Stayed here as part of a tour group. Huge space inside and outside our room (balcony included). You do need to embrace the experience with the view that everything is "old" and antique. Along these lines, some taps and plugs in the ensuite did not quite function as expected, but this didn't worry us as it was a unique experience... More

What an amazing experience! We loved the atmosphere, the room, as others have said this is a restored castle so a bit quirky but just adds to the charm. We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night and it was magnificent. Spent the days touring the beautiful countryside and wandering in the village. Our last night there the... More

We spent 3 nights here in September 2014 for dinner bed and breakfast. The rooms are quite amazing; huge, with original looking furnishings, 4 poster beds etc. As other reviewers have said it is a bit like being in a fairytale. We were part of a walking group of 15 and were very well looked after. The views are fantastic... More

We saw Il Castello on our way to Barolo and from a distance it was like something out of a fairy tale. We hadn't booked to stay here but in seeing it up close we changed our plans and booked an extra night to experience this magical castle hotel. The staff/owners were all delightful and very helpful, even arranging a... More

It has very spacious rooms, although our bathroom was a bit dated, a wonderful terrace overlooking the hills and town of novello. The staff were really friendly and helpful catering to our every need including babysitting our daughter. Unfortunately the restaurant was not open the first... More

If you ever dreamed of staying in an ancient castle, this is the place for you. The suites provide incredible views ---ours had a large private terrace, and a bathroom built into one of the towers,and our friends had a bed decorated in gold leaf and a gorgeous painted ceiling. Both suites were quite large. The generous buffet breakfast was... More

We stayed here bevor and came back to this charming castle. We were 2 couples and shared the suite with a private terasse. We enjoyed the great view and relaxing atmosphere. The dinning room is lovely nostalgic too. We strongly recommend staying at this magic little castle.
