Based in a small village this is an unspoiled gem! Great hotel, spacious rooms decorated in an authentic and very charming style and with a high sense for every detail. There is hardly anything else to do here than to relax at the pool and enjoy the very friendly service and hospitality from the family owners. Unless you want to go shopping at the designers outlet 6km away or want to take a daytrip to the lakes of Magiore or Como. Food is a story on its own. Yesterday evening we enjoyed a lovely dinner in the charming ambience of the restaurant - expect a price level of 12-15€ per dish. Great value. Small but delicate choice of italian wines at affordable prices. Tonight we will have the Gourmet dinner where the Michelin star chef has promised us. Four more days to go here - la vita e bella!

We didn't have any expectations for these place but in the end it was wonderfull stay. Only one night but We should come back . Nice staff. They don't speak English easily but with charm they overcome any trouble. Restaurant Is good, rooms newly furnished, parking in the garden and nice swimming pool.

We were looking for a traditional, cosy, friendly Italian hotel somewhere quiet. We found the Hotel Tenimento al Castello on the internet and decided to email them direct and arrange the booking. They spoke enough English to easily arrange a room for 2 adults and 4 children. Very easy to find with the use of SatNav. On arrival you park outside the front doors and go inside to book in. They have a private and secure car park around the back and will open the wooden gates for you.

All the staff are super friendly and very helpful. The hotel has a small pool that the children loved. We ordered small light food to eat beside the pool which was very good and reasonably priced.

Room was large, very well appointed and has quality fittings. Bathroom was also fully equipped and plenty of space.

The breakfast was self service and plenty of choice both for adults and children. Usual fresh pastries, bread, fresh fruits, boiled eggs, coffee machine, yoghurts, cheese, ham and more. You can sit inside or outside in the garden under cover.

Has lots of space outside to sit and relax.

Its a lovely hotel that makes you feel welcome and somewhere ideal for either a stop over whilst travelling south or as a base to tour Northern Italy from! The Hotel needs more visitors supporting it like us - You have to book here!!!

One night in a castle....beautiful room, huge room, huge bathroom, and a very big cute dog hiding behind the reception desk!
We spent only one night here but it was very much worth it although it was in the middle of nowhere (close to Novara, though). The room was maybe a bit too big (can you believe, in Italy!) but the bed was very, very comfortable, the shower divine with a rain shower. The breakfast was adequate...a bit impersonal but you have all the basics (coffee was from a machine that does espresso, cappuccinos, etc but I think they should have done fresh coffee) and its filling.
There's a restaurant where the service was great - we had dinner there (don't think there anything else within walking distance there) and the waiter brought us some prosecco and prosciutto as an appetizer.I had the risotto of tome and Nebbiolo which was very good and my husband had a tagliatelle with wild boar sauce - this dish was alright.
They had price tags on a lot of the decorations in the restaurant - everything is for sale so felt a bit "commercial" - but if you're looking to pick up a souvenir or two there are some nice stuff on sale, such as cushions, plates, lighting, and even some handbags.
Not sure why there were any bad reviews as per the device because when we were there the staff were very kind and welcoming (although service was only by one waiter in the entire restaurant, which had quite a big floor space, so a tad slow. We didn't mind thought as we were not in a rush and were able to unwind "all'italiano").
The garden area is very pretty, too. There was a pool and a country house / reception area for weddings out in the back, which I'm sure would be nice when the weather is warmer.
I would come back here next time I'm in northern Italy.

We stayed here with our two children for 6 nights in August 2015. The hotel is beautifully decorated, offers excellent food, has very friendly and helpful staff and is set in a small village surrounded by farmland with distant views of Mont Blanc.

We booked through the website booking.com which implied we would have a particular split-level family room, however on arriving that was not the room we were given. The staff were very helpful but explained that the information we had got from the website was not passed on to them and that the room in question had been allocated to another family. However, the room we had was beautifully decorated, large and with the most stunning hotel bathroom we have seen, so we were not all all disappointed.

The hotel has a small pool with loungers in a peaceful courtyard and a garden area beyond that. It is a perfect place for relaxing and where our children also enjoyed making friends with the hotel's cats and dog!

There is a lovely buffet breakfast with lots of choice. The restaurant is well worth eating in for dinner, the food is real Italian cooking at its best!! Absolutely delicious!

Although in a small village, the hotel is close to both the A4 and A26 motorways making it easy to get to lots of places - such as: Lake Orta (45 minutes drive), Ondaland water park (less than 10 minutes) and the beaches near Genova (just under 2 hours).

Our only one small quibble was that although there was air conditioning in the room it did very little to actually keep the room cool! However, even this did not detract from how much we enjoyed our stay.

Al Castello was simply wonderful and we highly recommend it. We will definitely stay here again next time we are travelling in Northern Italy.
