This resort is the epitome of beauty and comfort. I have never stayed in a more beautiful resort in my seventeen years of living. The spa was amazing, with great and kind service, who were careful and knew what they were doing. :) The grounds were beautiful, and so was the decor in the lobby and in the rooms. The staff was respectful and kind, and everyone there was extremely nice. :) Also, there were some kittens living on the property that I spent a lot of time playing with. :) It was just overall a wonderful experience and I definitely want to stay here again soon. :)

Decent hotel, staff friendly and helpful.
Overall hotel was tired...lobby & common areas need a facelift. Seemed to be a stale smell in halls.
Room good. Spa good.
Food at house on property was excellent.

We booked this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews which glorified this "luxury resort" (the hotel's own description). It is basically a rundown B&B (not a resort, nor luxurious) that has potential but does not live up to it. The property and buildings do look like a French inn when you drive up and is quite large, but both the interiors and the grounds need a major rehab. The photos were obviously taken years ago and made the hotel look much more than it is. There was a terrible smell in the lobby each time we entered. Photos on the website give the illusion the women are lounging poolside, when it is really a small unattended fish pond. Rooms were more like an outdated great aunt's bedroom and the tennis courts were not in good shape. Obviously needs some major investment dollars to make it what it could be. Until then owners should really temper their descriptions to a more realistic picture of what it is - a B&B.

They have a very beautiful property. It is so relaxing to enjoy fresh air.
There are special floor for dog owner which located on 1st floor and easy access to outside.
This area is a little secluded from other room. So we feel a little easier.

We love here. Dogs too.

La Tourelle Resort and Spa was an excellent stay. We had a large King room with fireplace and balcony. The balcony although small holding only two chairs was a pleasant surprise. It was so nice to sit on in the evening and morning enjoying coffee/tea. The room was spotless and nicely appointed. They offer free wine tasting, cheese, crackers in the evening which was an unexpected nice touch. The owners are very hands on and present during most of the day. Everyone we meet that worked here went out of their way to say hello and ask if they could do anything. We did not get to use the spa or onsite restaurant so I cannot comment on them. The grounds were lovely with large chess board, koi pond, lily pond with chairs for relaxing, nice hiking trails from property to Buttermilk Falls. Overall excellent stay and we will be back.

Our recent stay at La Tourelle was so nice! It is a beautiful property! The room we had is very large, with 2 queen beds, perfect for 2 friends to share. It is very relaxing and quiet, just right for a vacation.
They are very nice there . I forgot my jacket in the closet in the room . I called and they kindly said it was no problem to send it to me in Florida!
Had a wonderful stay in Ithaca at this lovely inn!

La Tourelle has the feel of a French chateau. The common areas are small but inviting. Grounds are charming, complete with fruit trees, gazebos, twinkle lights at night, lily padded ponds, and more. Romantic. Weddings are common here. Decent hiking trail to Buttermilk Falls, too.
