The owners take pride in their establishment having excellent updated decorating, state of the art showers, large rooms with great views of the Lake. Short walk down to the village and restaurants. Parking is even present - amazing for Italy. Most of all, the owner awoke early to make us breakfast before our early morning limo trip to the airport....

The location of the hotel was perfect- close to restaurants & downtown and beautiful views of the island and lake. We did splurged for a room with a full view of the lake and were glad we did; but, of course we can't speak to the views of others. Very comfortable bed and good environment for restful sleep (dark room...

We spent 1 night here while travelling from Milano back to our family house in Ticino. Beautiful lake with a wonderful island (San Giuglio). The village of Orta is very quaint but can get very busy with tourists. Best time to visit is either early in the morning, late at night or out of season. The Hotel La Bussola is...

We stayed two nights at this hotel and were very satisfied. The view from the terrasse is amazing! The pool was very well maintained and was lovely at the end of a hot day. The hotel is within walking distance of the center of town, so we left the car in the (free) car park the whole time. The room...

It would be hard to find a better location than this hotel above the lakeside. Beautiful terrace for dining and breakfast and superb views from the bedroom day and night. Very friendly and helpful staff (including the dalmatian behind the desk). Very easy walk into the town for a stroll or a boat ride across to the island. My wife...

This relatively modern family-owned hotel stands just above San Giulio old town. It has good facilities in its grounds, including a swimming pool with a paddling pool for small children. Our room had a "partial lake view" and it was spacious, with a balcony and a quite adequate vista. Meals in the summer are served on the terrace, which has...

We were fortunate to stay three nights in this lovely family hotel overlooking beautiful Lake Orta. The hospitality of the owners and staff is nothing short of superb, the location is perfect and it was a sheer delight to enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast on the verandah overlooking the lake. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable and the...
