What Our Guests Say…

12 – Susan, Ted

Thank you so much for a fabulous 5 day holiday at the Nicolas Inn. We couldn't have picked a nicer venue for our stay and the information and "insider knowledge" you provided helped make the most of the short time we had to explore Rome. Your attention to detail was demonstrated by the nice touches you provided to make us feel very welcome and at home - i.e. cold orange juice after a long morning tramping around the streets and the small Easter eggs/fruit on reception. We will definitely recommend you to all our family and friends.
