The photos don't do this friendly hotel justice. Simple. Clean. Great breakfast and dinner. Otello was the perfect host and made us feel very welcome including our dog! Great for families or couples. Would visit again.

This hotel is a outdated, but the staff is very welcoming and great host. The hotel does not offer wifi in the rooms and breakfast as very limited options. The hotel restaurant food was descent but could would not be a place to eat every night. The hotel is located right by the lake and would be great in the... More

the hotel itself appears dated; but is made by the welcome from the host; the terrace restaurant with the lake view; the wine cellar from which you choose your very reasonable decent quality wines and the decent cooking from the chef including a great rissotto; pleasant fillets of lake fish; and good pasta. beds were comfortable; showers hot and forceful;...

As previous reviewers have mentioned, the view from the hotel is spectacular. After traveling through Piedmont for the last 3 weeks and staying at everything from B&B's to little hotels to chain hotels, this was the shabbiest we stayed at (we were in several other 3-star places, all of which were better kept). Dark hallways, cheaper furniture and somewhat run-down... More

Charming hotel ! Warm and friendly welcoming and a:great restaurant thanks to Otello and David. Nice and quiet location overlooking the lake with a beach to spend the day sun bathing and swimming. If you prefer exploring the area, Orta San Giulio is a couple of miles away with beautiful testimonies of italian art and history:

I stayed in this hotel on the shores of Lago de Orta, 4 km south of Orta San Giulio for two nights. It is an excellent value, with large rooms overlooking the lake, a restaurant with honestly good, if plain piedmontese cuisine, and an excellent breakfast, a great playroom. Nearly perfect for families with young kids. The two brothers who... More

The Hotel is run by two brothers, Otello and Davido. We could not have been better looked-after. The location is fine, (we had a hire-car) with EASY links and parking for the village by the lake, Luglio, boat trips to the village on the Lake, - check out the path of silence around the nunnery there - PLUS an A-MAZ-ING...

Fontaine Bleue was one of the happiest discoveries of a recent trip. Spacious rooms, lovely location, excellent value and Otello, the innkeeper, is one of the nicest folks we met. I had never been in this part of Italy before. GO and enjoy it before others find it!!!
