“business trip”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

I have visited this hotel many times over the years and it always comes up to a very high standard. The food, rooms and service are all excellent and surrouonding area is beautiful. The restaurant over looking the lake is fantastic and a must try is the Risotto, its the best i've had anywhere.............

Keep checking for special offers as its not the cheapest in the Orta area, but if you get a good deal its well worth the visit. Family run business in a beautiful unspoilt area of Italy.

We loved the Hotel. It probably also had to do with the perfect location. The rooms are rather small but clean and stylish. The reception desk people were very friendly. Dinner was ok, but you'd rather go into the village. But the Bar was perfect. Well equipped and the little things to eat were plenty and very good. Just the pool is a little shaby, but the lake nice and clean. Price value was good.

Room Tip: You have to take the Lakeview.

A fabulous frontage and reception and some lovely details, like the Corbusier chair and huge propped up mirror in our room but it's a shame the same attention hadn't been paid to the back of the hotel, which was architecturally drab, with a somewhat municipal swimming pool. The bar was stylish and the range of drinks superb but the breakfast room, again, was uninspiring. Service was good but not overly warm, with the exception of the barman. We didn't eat in the hotel because of the range of restaurants elsewhere in the town. Overall good, and at the peaceful end of town, but lacking the follow through of the impressive arrival.

Its just to expensive for what it offers.

With such high prices you expect a bit more.
Better go to Stresa and make a Daytrip to San Giulio. Because this Little village Is so cute and romantic!

But the stuff Is friendly.

Great location and views of the magical lake. Our suite was large with 2 baths, dining alcove and balcony; fireplace, gorgeous inlaid marble floors and painted ceilings. Many areas of the hotel seemed tired and dark. Food was nothing special. An enjoyable venue for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: we had the presidential suite; 2 large rooms, 2 baths, balcony and wonderful view of lake

I wasn't too keen on the shades of brown décor throughout the hallway and rooms – it did make the rooms feel dark. If you are claustrophobic – be warned the bathrooms are very small! We had a little window in our room with a lovely view of the lake which was nice.
Breakfast was a simple buffet style but adequate. Staff were helpful.
Internet comes with a charge – this is personal gripe of mine, I do not believe that in this day and age, you should have to pay an additional charge to use the internet.
The hotel is well located on the bank of the lake and is within easy walking distance to the main square.
The hotel is average and is in lie with pricing.
