ice hotel
Nice hotel with great free parking. We had balcony room overlooking the lake which was excellent. Room was very clean and comfortable. It had a fridge and a kettle but no cups or coffee provided. The pool area is lovely with plenty of sunbeds. You can walk along the lakefront path to the little town of pettanesco. There is a pleasant lake front cafe bar there and another two restaurants in the centre. It is not possible to walk along the road to the main town. All the staff were absolutely excellent, they were hard working, efficient and very friendly, a real credit to the hotel.

Great Hidden Hideaway
Beautiful accommodations! Short distance from the city center, which was a plus since we had a rental car. The only complaint we had was the internet service was very sporadic! If not for that, I would have no complaints whatsoever!

A nice lake weekend
Beautiful spot right on the Orta lakeside with nice pool and peaceful setting. The ferry stops conveniently on the property which is great for traveling to San Guilia and Isola San Guilia. Our room was comfortable although a little dated with a terrible shower head but the lake view terrace made up for it! Staff were generally helpful and accommodating.

Lovely location
The lakeside location of this hotel is the main positive, with a boat service to Orta San Giuilio. Breakfast was ok and the room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We ate dinner in the hotel a couple of nights but whilst the food was good it felt a bit over elaborate and we preferred to eat at a more authentic local trattoria.

Hotel should have a lift to rooms on second floor.
Pleasant hotel directly on the lake. Unfortunately, room was on second floor and there was no lift, not good for people with mobility problems.Good breakfast.

Great facilities in delightful location.
Location is wonderful and coupled with this resort type hotel's facilities it results in a wonderful, relaxing experience. I think the lakeside tables on the restaurant terrace or the waterwide gazebo are some or the most romantic in all Europe.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel, my wife had a knee injury and the staff were very helpful. Would have liked more time to explore. Hotel breakfasts were disappointing for our tastes. Restaurant was good , only grudge was the mosquito never bitten so much whilst on holiday.
