“WOW! Great B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Couldn't have been more pleased with this warm and pleasant home. Every detail considered by the owners. Amenities were everywhere from the lemonade and cookies to the morning coffee to the luxury bath soaps. Large living and dining rooms provided common areas to gather and talk about our exciting days at Zion. The restaurants for breakfast were beyond excellent and very close...pleasant short morning walk. A very warm, friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: we viewed 9 of the rooms upon arrival and all were excellent. If you have heavy bags go for the fir...

Nice B&B that is clean and convenient to Zion NPS and right in town in Springdale, UT. Owner is very nice and friendly. Views are great. They provide coupons for breakfast at local restaurants, which doesn't include tip cost. Both restaurants were great. Our complaint would be the floors and bed were squeaky and there are no "extras" that we normally receive at B&Bs. (ex: no cold drinks/snacks (except for cookies/lemonade pitcher on one afternoon), movie CDs were fee charged, etc.) Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and loved Zion!

We found this beautiful B&B by accident, it's just behind the main street in Sprindale, so there's no passing traffic, but you're only 100 yards from the bars & restaurant. Upon arrival, after a day walking in Zion NP, were were served homemade cookies & fresh lemonade, just what was needed. There's tea and coffee on tap and a shared fridge in the lounge area. Our room was very comfortable. You get breakfast at a restaurant at the bottom of the road, and it was brilliant.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Robert Louis Stevenson room, all rooms are named after authors.

If you are visiting Zion National Park, you must stay at The Novel House. It is a gem. The owner is from Ireland and he is friendly and has thought of everything. The rooms are named after authors, and they are large and comfortable. They have lemonade and cookies in the afternoon in their tearoom downstairs. There is a microwave, coffee, hot chocolate and tea also available there. You get a free breakfast at a different restaurant every morning. It is centrally located. We had a lovely stay, and would highly recommend it.

My fiancée and I wanted an escape with hiking at Zion National Park. Novel House was the perfect base for our adventures! We enjoyed a beautifully appointed room and an interesting and gracious host family. Vouchers for breakfast are provided at a couple of restaurants within easy walking distance, and there is always coffee or tea available in the dining room with a view. Our room was quiet, being just off the main road, but we were within walking distance to almost anything. We loved our time here!

Beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, luxuriously comfortable rooms -- gracious, accommodating hosts -- huge, delicious breakfasts at one of two very close restaurants whenever you wish to have breakfast -- the proximity and ease of good transportation into the beautiful Zion National Park. The consistent quality of all of these features leads us to start planning our next trip back to the Novel House Inn each time we leave.

Ross is a an awesome host and took care of everything we needed. This is a super convenient, quiet location and features nice and cozy rooms.There is a wonderful collection of books in the common guest room on ground floor, as well as each room includes some of the great English literature from the past. Will surely stay here on future visits.
