La Tourelle's 54 deluxe rooms have dreamy pillow-top mattresses to ensure a restful night's sleep. You'll need that sleep if you plan on touring the wine trails; visiting the museums; taking a hike in any of the five state parks, or participating in the numerous adventure excursions available in "gorges" Ithaca. After experiencing all that Finger Lakes wine country has to offer, you'll really appreciate getting pampered at August Moon Spa.

A very nice older hotel with a boutique feel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was very large and nicely appointed. They are repairing the roof so there was some heavy equipment around, but it did not detract from a lovely experience. They offer a free glass of wine during a happy hour. The hotel has a very pretty setting and we would definitely stay there again,

Hotel's Favourite
Spent a long weekend at La Tourelle and enjoyed every moment The rooms are nice (ask for ones with a fireplace they are larger) The general manager Cameron is so helpful he has tons of recommendations for exploring the Finger Lakes by boat (his recommendation was Costa DaVina with Captain Paulo Carmen) to wineries and restaurants Don’t miss happy hour each evening at 5:00 its a great time to meet the other guests and chat! The Bistro serves breakfast and lunch I would recommend trying both the food was fantastic and ask for Hailey she was a great server! Thanks to Courtney and all the woman that were so helpful at the front desk

We stayed two nights while exploring waterfalls in Ithaca. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful and the grounds are beautiful. I would stay again and I would recommend it for others.

We visited our son for Easter weekend. He is a senior at Ithaca College. We stayed at La Tourell and had a pleasant stay. The rooms were big and clean. The hotel was spotless. The fire place was burning the entire stay in the lobby making for a cozy environment. We brought our dog freckles who was treated with the same respect as the guests. We would highly recommend this gem.

Quiet. Safe. Peaceful. Lovely. Warm and inviting. NOT corporate modern and glitzy and shiny and loud and “cold”. La Tourelle offers a very different (and better) experience. At LaTourelle, I appreciated the outstanding service from every single staff member I encountered in my three day stay. Each one truly contributed to making me feel welcome. I am so glad I decided against the high-rise hotels in the bustle of downtown Ithaca and the “big box” hotels in the area . They have their purpose, but LaTourelle was really the right choice for me. I was unable to try their spa services, but I had two meals at The Bistro, the very interesting house at the front of the property. The meals were delicious, with generous portions and great service. Be sure to read the history of how this old farm became such a sweet gem for travelers.

The hotel is very nice by the looks, but the sounds of the central air condition unit make it impossible to sleep. Even if you turn off the room air condition unit, the central unit will still be working at a high level - making it impossible to get a good night sleep. Too bad, as the hotel had a lot of potential.

Our stay at La Tourelle was a fantastic end to our roadtrip. First and foremost, the staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful, which made us feel like home immediately. The rooms were cleaned on fleek and the beds were extra comfy. We also treated ourselves with a massage just before our checkout and yet again the service went beyond expectations. Thank you for an awesome stay

A Very pleasant welcome upon arrival. The front desk folks were friendly and informative, and our lovely room was Ready! The first thing I saw when opening the door to our room was a Bookshelf, how amazing and homey! Extremely clean and comfortable room. Happy Hour in the lobby offered a free glass of local wine, And, they are pet friendly, so we got to visit with a sweet doggie at the same time. Lobby also had many books and a fireplace to add to the warmth of the stay. We hope to visit again for another relaxing stay. Also enjoyed a delicious dinner at The Bistro, salmon for me, stuffed peppers for him. Highly recommend a stay here, Out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Ithaca! A special "Thank You" to Addison, you were a delight.

As soon as you pull in the driveway you feel like you are at an European Country Inn. We enjoyed the cookies and coffee in the lobby. Our ground floor pet friendly room was spacious and had easy access to the backyard. Our dog enjoyed it. Many of the guests were enjoying drinks in the lobby at night and were having a good time. If you are not in a rush, I would highly recommend having breakfast at the bistro. My wife loved the Monte Crisco!

I was so impressed with this hotel for so many reasons. We walked in and there were a couple of people in line to check in so we were immediately invited over for complimentary wine. They do that between 5-6. The owner was behind the bar and poured me two glasses and then sent the end of the bottle to the room with me when happy hour was over. The room was beautiful with a lovely sunset view. It was also the cleanest room I've ever stayed in. Not a spec of dust to be found. It was charming and most of the family runs different parts of the business which I found out during a lovely conversation with the owner. They are very accommodating. Really loved this place and will be back for sure!
