If you like clean and comfortable rooms, a quiet locale, marvelous views, extremely helpful hosts, the perfect location for a visit to Zion--and have a literary bent, this is the IDEAL place for you. The family-owned hotel is beautifully furnished with literary themes--each room has an author's name and motif--and is located just a very, very short walk away from... More

If you're looking for home hospitality in clean, comfortable and wonderfully kept rooms, look no further. Ciaran is the perfect host who makes every effort into making your stay at his inn, as well as all of Springdale and Zion National Park perfect in every way. The day we arrived was long and frustrating. We live in NJ, so between... More

I have stayed at this gem twice now and it is the perfect get away. The individual who runs the inn is wonderful, helpful in every way. The place is super clean with wonderful touches. Each room is names and decorated after a famous author...CS Lewis, Stevenson, Austin, etc. The rooms have beautiful and practical furniture with great beds. It... More

We made our plans and reservations quite late. The only room we could find was at the Novel House Inn and even there it was the most expensive room they had at $260/night plus tax. We were in the Dolce Vita Suite. The Dolce Vita Suite as our host explained was formerly a restaurant, then a shop selling merchandise and... More

The host (Ciaran) is very professional while friendly and knowledgeable. He gave you great advice not only in Springdale but the area. The house is within walking distance of many restaurants and shops as well as the shuttle stop for Zion Park what is very convenient for a relaxed time without moving a car around. I booked a couple nights... More

We stayed here 3 nights this week with our young adult son and cannot say enough good things about the Novel House Inn! Originally we planned to stay in Zion Lodge, right inside the park. However, we are not fans of Xanterra, the concessionaire who runs US national park lodging. We switched to Novel House Inn and are so glad... More

We can't say enough good about this B&B. The welcome was very friendly and the atmosphere was one of good will and trust. There is a generous library/gift shop on the first level, as well as a drink station in another room for coffee, tea, etc. There are fresh cookies and lemonade or hot drinks every afternoon. The rooms are... More

We booked a couple nights at the inn and ended up staying for 4 nights because we liked it so much. The inn is within walking distance of many restaurants and shops as well as the shuttle stop for Zion Park. The rooms are themed (famous authors) and beautifully decorated. There is nice common space and coffee/tea is always available.... More

Kieran was a wonderful, caring host, who took care of every problem as soon it came up. He also genuinely cared that we had a good trip--a nice contrast to the other business owners we met in Springdale. The children are adorable, and the inn has a warm friendly feel. There is coffee and tea available all day, and cold... More

The entire inn is beautiful. We stayed two nights in the Bronte room. It is a large corner room with windows on two walls. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The host was so helpful and even came over from his home the first night to help us figure out how to operate something on the TV. The living... More
