“Great Hotel and Staff in Barolo Country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

I have stayed at Ascheri on a number of occassions mainly on business
The hotel and staff offer a 1st class service
Located in Bra Peidmonte right in the heart of the wonderful red wine region the Ascheri family offer not only a high standard hotel but a 1st rate restaurant in the spacious courtyard
The staff are very friendly/helpful and the rates are very competitive
You should try the Ascheri family wines from the winery located below the hotel
Within (car) 60 minutes from Turin airport, 90 minutes from Genoa and Milan.
Location good for exploring the Alps and of course Barolo wines etc

We arrived at Ascheri Hotel for a week end. The Hotel is 5 minutes Walking from Bra City Center. The Hotel is a newly renovated winery building, very stilish and comfortable. You get a fee wine botte in your room as a welcome (appreciated) gesture. Clean spacious room with magnifying lenses inside the walls to look at the nearby mountains! A very good accueillance for the price. Comfortable free parking, info and good generale service, definitely the Hotel to be to explore Bra and the surroundings. WiFi 3€/day (after the wine we expected it free :) )

We were recommended to this hotel by a friend who is in the wine business. The hotel was beautiful!! There was an incredible amount of attention paid to every detail. The room was very large, comfortable and impeccably furnished. A lot of interesting touches in the design of the inn in all aspects. The room was a great value and included a wonderful breakfast. We were treated to a very interesting tour by one of the delightful owners of the winery, and really enjoyed talking with her and learning their history as well as their views on life in Italy. We ate at their restaurant located within the compound which had great food at a very reasonable price. Would love to go back and would recommend it to anyone with a love of food, travel and wine.

We especially sought out this hotel after tasting a few of the Ascheri wines onboard a cruise ship. The hotel, wine cellar and restaurant did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make that you had a pleasant stay. The rooms were very modern and well kept. We enjoyed looking out of the telescopes in the wall of our room onto Bra and the Piemonte valley. We wish that we had booked to stay longer in the hotel, rather than spending a day in Milan. We'll definitely be returning to this hotel and their wine cellars! Cheers to all the staff membes that made our stay pleasant (Marchello, Matteo and Alessandro, to name a few).

We're Slow Food members and visiting Bra headquarters. This gem-like boutique hotel was so much more than we expected. Nothing worth quibbling about -- trendy but easy to use room controls, excellent used of concrete, wood, plaster, and torchis in a wonderful modern building. I would like to meet the architect to pay homage to his or her talent. Included dinner at the same-owner osteria was in a word perfect. I really loved my lentil salad and polenta with sausage and mushroom. This family makes excellent wines well (actually made it first) before they opened this Olympics-Era experiment in lodging hospitality. Bravo!

Really enjoyed it -the family that runs it and the restaurant and the winery were so helpful -we arrived as the grapes were being brought in and they showed us through the winery and process.We needed the menu interpretted and they were only too willing to sit down and go through it -we decided to eat there the first night and then the only night we did not eat there was because it was closed .
Breakfast at hotel was great .
NB Out GPS guided us to down the road -its not a pretty suburb but dont be put off -once you find it and the right spot you really only head one way into town

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view and you miss the neighbours washing

We were touring the Val d'Aosta and Piemonte and were in Bra so that we could visist the wine villages nearby. Bra certainly isn't blessed with an enormous choice of accommodation but the Ascheri is exceptional. It is a totally modern establishment (as I am sure you will have seen from the photographs) and it has the great advantage of parking. It is set above the wine-making facility, which one can visit. Curiously the lounge/reception area has been left very stark and extremely uninviting - most certainly not cosy! And one is surprised given the care that has gone into the rest of the design.

There is no restaurant but the owners have a separate restaurant across the courtyard (and with a separate street entrance). This is a very simple establishment with a small menu but I liked it very much. It very much had a local 'locanda' feel about it. But there are also other restaurants within walking distance.

As for Bra itself I fear I can't enthuse greatly about the town. It's central location is really its attraction.
