The room was beautiful and spacious. I had my son's rehearsal dinner there outside of the barn. They were extremely flexible and constantly checked on me to make sure I had everything I needed. The people were so friendly and helpful. We made a red velvet cake that my niece decorated and iced. It didn't make the trip and melted... More

We stayed again at La Tourelle, and it was amazing! Our room was ready even with our 2 p.m. arrival, and with hotel staff preparing for two weddings that night. There is access to a state hiking trail on the property, and when we asked a random worker setting up chairs for directions, he not only sent us the right... More

Quaint Inn on the outskirts of Ithaca -- Friendly relaxing stay Stayed over Cornell's Homecoming .. Fabulous steak house adjacent Adjacent to Buttermilk Park.. one of the outrageously beautiful hikes in New York State.. dramatic and cool rock formations carved into the slate rock by the stream.

I have had the pleasure of staying at La Tourelle three times because my child is a college student nearby. Prior to that I stayed at some of the chain hotels in the city and was getting tired of that so thought I would give La Tourelle a try. I am glad I did and now I am hooked! As... More

We stayed overnight at La Tourelle to do a winery tour. We had a room with a fireplace. It was much larger than most hotel rooms and it was very clean. We are picky about cleanliness and we didn't find this hotel lacking in that area one bit. The bed was very comfortable and neither it nor the bathroom looked... More

I will start this review by agreeing w/ some folks that this resort is in need of a "slight" visual makeover...On the outside ONLY!!! In fairness, I will caveat by saying that I believe the drought of 2016 did not help the La Tourelle crew in keeping up w/ their (obvious) beautiful grounds!!!! That was certainly not a deal breaker...The... More

This hotel needs a makeover. I thought it was going to be a more upscale place and was disappointed to find instead a dreary worn looking place. Even the landscaping around the front and sides of the building looked tired. I realize there's been a drought in that part of NY but it wouldn't have taken much effort to keep... More

For the cost, my last experience here was a disappointment! The room needed attention! There was a lot of dust and the jacuzzi spewed out foul-smelling gunk! Restaurant service is unorganized; servers forget to bring items; restaurant has flys and bees coming inside from doors that are left open.

The staff is wonderful there. There are so many lovely things that the hotel offers like evening wine where you can meet others in the hotel or just read a book and enjoy some of the local wines. The grounds are beautiful with multiple gazebos to enjoy your morning coffee or just walk along the grounds or small trails. The... More

The Staff at La Tourelle couldn't have been friendlier - the rooms were enormous as were the beds - and very comfy. However, it's all quite tired....Our AC in our room was SO loud, you couldn't sleep with it on, and it was hot and muggy. Breakfast was great and plentiful.

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.
