We had a room in the main building with a lovely view. The staff were attentive and helpful. Our only quibble was the breakfast room is a bit small so you become aware of others waiting for tables. Great wine tasting in the late afternoon of local produce. Getting to Ithaca itself certainly needs transport. Nice town with an alternative... More

There are many pros and cons. Let's start with the positives: The location is fairly convenient (15 minutes) to Cornell and down the street from Ithaca College. There is a steak house next door that appears to have an upscale menu and is super convenient if you don't feel like driving to dinner. The rate was decent given it was... More

The best thing about La Tourelle is it's stunning grounds which the owners have landscaped beautifully, with summer-houses, ponds and plants. Perfect for a peaceful afternoon or even half an hour to chat or read. The reception area is a lovely space, with sofas, games, and a bar with local wines. These are hospitably shared in the evening. The space... More

La Tourelle was one of the most pleasant hotel experiences that we have had. Our room was charming and clean. The staff was informative and helpful. We had a problem with our car and they directed us to a great auto shop and offered to pick us up. The steam room, sauna and exercise room were awesome and the breakfast... More

Loved our spacious room on the first floor with two king beds. So nicely decorated and comfortable. Service was good and the small lobby bar was convenient. Restaurant next door was pricey but the scallops special was delicious. Loved the spa also. Would definitely stay here again.

This is our second time back. Nice place. Someone else did say ask for a balcony I agree, liked that room best. They have a nice wine tasting in the late afternoon. Very close to many wineries. Definitely have dinner at Jon Thomas right next door, excellent. Breakfast was very nice at the hotel. Rooms could use a make over... More

I can't say enough about what a great place this is! Friendly staff, great rooms, wonderful spa, outstanding restaurant and great trails nearby to hike. Suitable place for a weekend get-away, or while visiting friends and family in Ithaca!

This hotel has all the charm of a B and B as well as beautiful accommodations. We stayed in deluxe King room. The room had bookcases filled with books (perfect for me as I am a librarian!), a gas fireplace, double head shower and Jacuzzi tub, a balcony with sliding door,a luxurious king bed and more! I would never stay... More

This is a small luxury hotel/inn near Ithaca College. It is clean and staff is helpful. We had a king bedroom with fireplace and balcony overlooking the hills and valley. The view and quiet is worth the price which is comparable to other hotels in the area. The cafe offers breakfast and lunch. The breakfast was very generous and delicious.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you're looking for a getaway that offers deluxe accommodations; fabulous food; great wine; a destination spa and adventure experiences all nestled in the gorgeous New York Finger Lakes wine region, you've found it! La Tourelle's 54 deluxe rooms have dreamy pillow-top mattresses to ensure a restful night's sleep. You'll need that sleep if you plan on touring the wine trails; visiting the museums; taking a hike in any of five state parks, or participating in the numerous adventure excursions available in "gorges" Ithaca. After experiencing all that Finger Lakes wine country has to offer, you'll really appreciate getting pampered at August Moon Spa. We offer all the services you expect from a destination spa, plus we have two Tranquility Rooms where you can relax and enjoy cuisine from our menu at The Bistro. ... more   less
