I recently stayed at La Tourelle and we could not have been more pleased with the overall experience. The grounds are beautiful and impeccably maintained, the location was just right, the hiking trails were great, the lobby was warm and inviting, the room was huge and very comfy, and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. I can't think of... More

stayed one night and rooms a bit dated but still beautiful clean and comfortable beds. Great for people with disabilities as rooms close to reception spa and breakfast. Spa was wonderful and breakfast was cozy and well plated and tasty. French toast was great. John Thomas steakhouse on property as well for dinner but after the spa would recommend lighter... More

Just returned from a weekend stay at this hotel GIven the mixed reviews I was a little apprehensive. But I walk away giving La Tourelle 2 thumbs up. To cut to the chase, they get it right on the details, The rooms are spacious and soundproof so you are insulated from the noise of the room/s next door. The bathrooms... More

Could not ask for a better place to stay on my annual trip to Ithaca in the dead of winter. Wonderfully attentive staff, nice wine service nightly and a crackling fireplace are all you need. Want a fabulous dinner? The John Thomas steakhouse is literally steps outside the front door. Amazing food and staff. Can't wait to go back next... More

My husband and I just spent a night in the Yellow Barn Suite at LaTourelle.....simply perfect! The bed was so comfortable and the bedroom large. The suite includes a dinning area, a living room with fireplace, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and then a 1/2 bath. Yes it is a converted barn and you can hear the mourning doves coo... More

Stayed here with my husband for a weekend while visiting family at Ithaca College. What a gorgeous boutique hotel, hidden away from downtown! We loved our stay. The decor is very interesting, the rooms are most spacious and the views are beautiful. We saw deer on the grounds everyday that we stayed. We had breakfast there both mornings and the... More

This was a different type of hotel and a different type of stay. It's a beautiful location and out of the way of the chaos that can be apart of the city. It's very close to Ithaca College, and I had some great sleep when I was there to minister for a conference. I have told others about La Tourelle,... More

Beautiful, one-of-a-kind location. I have stayed here 4 times over the past 20 years and I will continue to return. A major plus: the last time we stayed at La Tourelle, they were offering complimentary wine tasting every day from 4 PM to 6 PM. A great accommodation to take advantage of before heading out for the night.

For the past 5 years we have ventured there for Christmas occasions and each and every time the meal and the atmosphere is great with a roaring fire in the hearth in the main lobby. I admit that the price to stay there, visit the spa or have a dinner is not the cheapest but the quality is excellent and... More

My sister and I stayed here during a visit to the Finger Lakes for my 50th birthday. We had a spacious although a little dated room. Very clean and well maintained, though. Service was great. We both had wonderful spa treatments and enjoyed delicious breakfasts and lunches. Close to downtown Ithaca with great shopping and dining. On the grounds they... More
