Our group stayed at this establishment for 5 nights, and sadly, it was all too short. Magnificently situation on the top of a hill, surrounded on all sides by vineyards and little hilltop villages each with their traditional Tower made for great viewing. Having you own car is highly recommended, as there is absolutely nothing for miles around except peace, quiet and stunning scenery. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated with all modern conveniences i.e. hi-fi, Satellite TV, Coffee Machine, mini-bar & Fridge, and very effecting individually controlled heating and Air Conditioning. The rooms are located in multiple buildings, but all connected internally which makes for easy moving around. the staff at Reception were extremely helpful in effecting bookings, making suggestions on trips to adjoining villages & restaurants. The very extensive gardens were full of benches, loungers & rattan hammocks in isolated corners where one could spend an hour or two in total silence to dream or meditate. their indoor pool and spa spoilt one for choice of services and highly recommended to rejuvenate oneself. The Open Plan Kitchen in the main dining room with super views of the Garden & hills in the distance enhanced one's dining experience. The Buffet Breakfast was reasonably extensive, but as we were in the middle of the White Truffle season, the Chef's speciality of 2 freshly laid eggs BAKED in a mini-pan with a touch of Truffle infused Olive Oil, and a generous portion of freshly shaved White Truffle at table would be impossible to beat. For dinner, a visit to their gourmet Two Michelin Star Restaurant in the Cellar is a must. Situated deep underground, in high vaulted ceilings with subdued lighting from huge crystal chandeliers makes for a magical setting, with good to match. the Sommelier is more than happy to take you on a conducted tour of the very extensive wine cellar, with good recommendations which wine to pair with your dishes. We found the biggest plus being the fact that after over-indulging in the food and wine department, there was a small elevator or lift discreetly tucked in a corner to take us back up to our rooms. This facility was more than well appreciated.

Room Tip: One grade UP from a normal double ensures you have great views.

Overpriced, slow staff, very touristic, no atmosphere of exclellence, though the view is spectacular. And please DO NOT take the truffle hunting. You will feel yourself fooled. Especially at the price you pay for watching the dog digging out the truffle hidden in the ground couple of hours before by the guide. No real forests around. And you will have to pay for it as well. Better go to the local truffles market and buy a pound of truffles for that price.

Located in a renovated monastery, probably the most beautiful views of vineyards and valleys you could find anywhere. Beautiful quiet grounds to stroll and explore, with a Michelin star Restaurant on premises delivers the excellent food and service you would expect. We stayed in a monastery suite, which was several connected rooms with a historic flavor. A taste of old Italy with an elegant flair.

The hotel and grounds are spectacular. The views of wine country are even better. This hotel is in a good location in the middle of the Barbera/Barbaresco area, although fairly secluded on the top of a hill.

We stayed in room 403 and were very impressed. (I think they call it the "ruby suite").

The service was good overall, although they would be smart to invest in some English lessons for the staff and this would help international guests who are accustomed to five star properties having more English speaking staff.

The hotel was very helpful in setting up winery tours and making meal reservations for us.

Room Tip: 403 is fantastic -- two private patios; private outdoor hot tub; two bathrooms; TVs everywhere
