Stayed here for only one night while visiting Lake Orta and found it clean and convenient and with wonderful staff - especially with great sense of humour at the check in. Excellent advice on where to park in town and how best to plan a walking tour. There is convenient parking and a short drive into S. Giulio to then... More

On a short trip from Scotland to Italy with 6 adults and 2 kids. This hotel could not make you feel more welcome. The personal service you get from the family owners is fantastic and is one of our lasting memories from our trip back in September. The food is delicious (especially the fungi risotto!). Only 5 minutes from the... More

We stayed here for one night. Having driven straight from Bergamo airport the location is ideal as it is situated on the main road into Orta San Guilio and so very easy to find. I had emailed ahead to request gluten free breakfast and evening meal for one of my children. We were delighted that the staff had taken the... More

This is my favourite place to stay on Lake Orta. We drove directly from England and immediately chilled out.The owner is fab and works his socks off to make you feel at home. All the staff are friendly and helpful. Our room with balcony and lake view is very special. There is a covered car park and a restaurant with... More

This hotel was a family run hotel which has a friendly atmosphere. Upon arrival the male owner/resptionist was very helpful and understanding of problems. His staff were also very helpful despite knowing little English they were happy to help direct us to places and shows us places on a map. The food upstairs was great although a little bit overpriced.... More

Where do I begin... For a start it should be called Motel and not Hotel. It is not in Orta, it's in fact outside the town and you need a car to get anywhere. Right on the main road which means constant traffic noise and the promised sea view is in fact view of the old shed/ workshop with dog... More

We were on our way to Milano: “La Scala”, “Expo Milano 2105” and decided to stop on Lake Orta for one night. We were not disappointed! We ate on the terrace of the restaurant, simple Italian cooking, nothing fancy; went into the cellar to chose a wine which we could not finish: “here, please take it to your room with... More

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
