This place was welcome retreat from the rigors of sightseeing in the national park. The owner couldn't have been more accommodating and the decor certainly lives up to its name - Novel House. Each room is named and decorated after a famous author - Tolstoy, Twain, etc. -- and a selection of the author's works is available in the room.... More

I agree with all the previous reviews. The place was immaculate and beautifully decorated. Ciaren was an excellent host going out of his way to make our two night stay delightful. After a day at the park, the living room is an inviting room to sit with a good book and have some lemonade and homemake lemon cookies. It was... More

We had only one night in Zion and we couldn't have picked a better hotel. The owner is so nice and accommodating and welcoming. The rooms were very clean and unique, which made it fun. It is extremely close to Zion and has spectacular views, and is located in an adorable little town. Also, the breakfast voucher is awesome because... More

I truly wish there was a Novel House Inn near every national park. Great location, plenty of room, great owner/manager, super clean, on and on . . . . I really appreciate the breakfast vouchers . . . both locations had great breakfast choices. WIFI was fast and consistent (unlike most of our stops on this trip). Even though there... More

My husband and I stayed here in July of 2014. I rarely fill out reviews, but we both agreed that the owner of this hotel deserves a great rating! The hotel was beautiful and extremely clean. The location was perfect, (close to Zion National Park - about a 3 minute drive). Our room (the Austen Room) was unique and had... More

Stayed there a couple nights in late May. Everything was clean and comfortable. It was close to a shuttle stop and everything else that you may need. I like the idea of vouchers for breakfast. Both places were close, had great food and I could select what I wanted. Be aware that the ac does not run all night to... More

My husband and I stayed in the Stevenson room. It was very comfortable, clean and quiet. Ciaran was most hospitable and helpful. He made sure that we had a pleasant stay by answering our questions and taking care of any service requests. The location is perfect. The Zion shuttle is only a block away. All restaurants were within walking distance.... More

I made a last minute change of plans and decided to drive to Zion, but where to stay? Kieran, the owner of Novel House to the rescue! In fact, I was so impressed with my accommodations, I stayed an extra day. My room, the Mark Twain, was clean, charming and comfortable and the coupons for breakfast led to 2 of... More

This is a delightful place to stay. The room my husband and I were in was a good size and elegantly decorated. The bed was very comfortable. There is a wonderful sitting room with coffee and tea always available. In the late afternoon it is a treat to have lemonade and cookies that are served here. There is a refrigerator... More

Friendly welcome, comfortable and clean room. Stayed in Jane Austen room; it was nicely set up although small. People who want more space might want to try another room. We enjoyed getting breakfast coupons for two nearby restaurants. People who seek a traditional B&B experience complete with group breakfast may not find this to their liking. For the two nights...
