Orta San Giulio is a beautiful village on the shores of lake Orta in Italy. Hotel San Rocco is an average hotel which would not be popular if placed anywhere else but on the shores of the lake. It is not a bad hotel, but not great either. I found it lacking in character, maybe because it was out of season and practically deserted. The staff were not particularly friendly and the bar had a cold atmosphere to it. On the positives, it was very clean and efficient and breakfast was not bad. Orta San Giulio is not a very big village so unfortunately you don't have much of a choice as far as accomodation is concerned. Not cheap either at 200 euros per night. By the way, word of advice, avoid the Leon D'Oro in the main square. We looked at this as an option for the second night but this is worst. Asked if we could look at the room before booking and when we remarked that they were tiny for the price (110 Euros per night) the receptionist sarcastically told us lump it or leave it.
