My now Husband and I just got married in Orta San Giulio and stayed at San Rocco. The wedding reception wasn't actually at the Hotel (although we had an aperitif there on the day) so we weren't sure if we would have the same service as those who choose to have their receptions there. However, we had great service.
The Receptionists were all super helpful and friendly, as were the Bar staff and all the others we came across. The location is fantastic and is really the best thing about this hotel. It's lake front setting is superb, with people being able to jump off the jetty into the lake, or dock their boat. The pool on the lake front is also wonderful. We had friends and family sitting with us daily, who weren't staying at San Rocco and they didn't mind.
We ate at the restaurant and although pricey, it was delicious. We stayed in a Superior room with a terrace and lake view. Beautiful and it was nice having a sofa and some extra room for moving around. I would recommend paying the extra a night and having a lake view, as you can look out onto the lake and island.
Parking is a bit tricky, so Reception will ask for your keys and park the car for you.
The only slight improvements that the Hotel could make are: 1) better lighting - its so dark in the room at night as the lights are quite dim 2) air conditioning didn't seem to function properly in any of our rooms 3) better parking 4) wifi throughout the hotel (it's only in 1 room and wasn't working even there, towards the end of our stay).
But these are all minor really... it didn't detract from a fantastic wedding stay. On our wedding night, San Rocco even gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne which was a lovely surprise. Would definitely recommend staying here.
