6.3 Good
Pros: Infrastructure outside the hotel (huge swimming pool, nautic equipments.... ) and direct acces to the lake The beautiful lake view The amability and kindfullness of the staff The high quality restaurant and its view Comfortable beds
Cons: The building (and parking -when you arrive) look very cheap and the hotel is closed to the road and a camping. This creates a real disappointment. The decoration of the rooms need a serious refurbishement (awful mix of colours that do not fit together) and the lobbies of the hotel are partially refurbished with ikea-like furnitures or not refurbished at all. In a nutshell no harmony in the decoration which also generates disappointment (not expected for a 4 star hotel) Bathroom = well below 4 star hotel The swimming pool is open to everybody during the day (not mentionned on booking.com) so during shiny days you are not in a remote and quite area that you could expect for a 4 stars-hotel. Breakfast : large variety of products with clearly satisfying quantity but low quality of juices, bread, jam. The breakfast room needs being redecorated as well.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. I upgraded to an exec lake view room - it was a lovely view. The room had a double bed and TV on a mezzanine level. The entrance level had tea point, mini bar, table/chairs, sofa, TV, wardrobe, safe, balcony (with table/chairs), bathroom. Easy access to the supermarket (10 mins), lake walk (20mins to end of Pettenasco), a few restaurants. Pool was great size for some morning laps! Also smaller warmer pool was lovely to chill and stare at the view! Also easy access to the lake. There were kayaks, pedalo and paddle boards for hire. Boat jetty at the hotel - boats go twice daily to Orta (€5).
Cons: The external was a little dated.

Pros: Breakfasts were excellent, offering natural honey straight from honeycombs, homemade jams, excellent continental breakfast... Lovely lounging area in front of the lake. The lake was excellent for swimming in and very refreshing. Ferry pick up at Giardinetti taking you to Orta San Giulio etc... As we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary whilst there, the staff presented us with two beautiful Alessi cups and saucers which was most kind of them and which we will cherish!!
Cons: You need a car as there is no pavement, making it it unsafe to walk along the road into Pettenasco or further into Orta.

Cons: na
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very good value for money! We loved the position, it was our base for day trips around the lakes, and the tranquillity of the area. The room was clean, large, comfortable. The owners and the staff very welcoming and accommodating. Last but not least: Osteria San Martino just below!
Cons: Note: there is no air conditioning (a fan is in the room) so during the day, in the heatwave period, it might get very hot. Just turn on the fan and it will be fine. Everyone we met around the lakes told us that temperatures above 30 degrees were absolutely unusual until this year, hence why air conditioning is not very usual around the lake.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful place and very friendly staff making you feel welcome :-)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The area was great, room was great
Cons: up on the hill
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely room in a beautiful old building incorporating a restaurant (which was also excellent but pricey). Italian style breakfast ingredients with kettle in your room. Very quiet and peaceful. Had a swallow's best just outside our room.
Cons: Not a complaint but you need to be aware that you have to leave your car in the public car park about 100 metres away as the property is down a Warren of tiny streets that cars can't negotiate easily. Staff speak good English and we very friendly.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Gisella and Sebastian made us really comfortable and helped us out whenever they could. We ate Sebastian's Osteria on the ground floor several times and they coped well with suggesting dishes for a coeliac and a vegan. The location in a little quiet hamlet up the hill from the lake shore and main road make is a restful place to sleep. Note though, car recommended. The building is quaint, with the apartments and rooms on two floors around a central courtyard.

6.3 Good
Pros: We had an excellent dinner that was fabulous. The owner could speak no English and luckily the young waitress was excellent at explaining the menu. The owner did put my freezer packs in her freezer for me for when we left.
Cons: The location was no where near Paternasco. It was up a very steep hill which was a nightmare to drive too. The owner was rude spoke no English would not lets us in the bar as she had a private party in. The shower was freezing never got hot the towel were thin and like cardboard to touch. The beds were 2 singles pushed together that kept moving apart if you rolled over! The breakfast was not very good the coffee was excellent though we are in Italy so you would expect that.

Cons: Room was old: bathroom with small shower and even a bidet, AC without age (didn't work well, the owner offered us to change room but it was the same in the other room so finally we get a fan as the temperature was really high). Breakfast was ok but seemed factory-made.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The villa was beautifully refurbished with contemporary fittings, but you still had the elegance of the 18th century villa.

5.7 Okay
Pros: location is fantastic and the pool and water sport options are great.
Cons: the hotel staff valet damaged our rental car then refused to take responsibility. we notified the management immediately, but were stonewalled repeatedly. First, they said they needed to review the video, but they never sent anyone to do it. We had to catch our flight back home, so we are now left with a large bill from the rental car company that the hotel refuses to take responsibility for. Outrageous. This is a nice hotel, but do NOT let them touch your car!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was very good with a complete offering of hot and cold items.
Cons: While the room was modern and comfortable, the bathroom could benefit from some updating. Our tub/shower combination, while very common in Europe, was quite steep and more challenging than most to get in and out of. Also, bathrobes were not offered, which is a very nice amenity when traveling.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about this hotel was wonderful during our stay which was at the end of September. Room, location, parking, wifi, meals, service, staff was exactly as we expected. We were attending a wedding (small only 8 guests, bride and groom) and Marta went over and above assisting with the plans and last minute changes. The wedding reception, aperitifs in the garden, 5 course dinner in the restaurant were amazing and the food of the highest quality - congratulations Hotel San Rocco - you delivered on all counts!

Cons: badly managed. v.poor breakfast.

Cons: Room was not ready at the specified check-in time.
5.0 Okay
Cons: Santa Caterina was closed for unexpected maintenance on Saturday therefore they moved us to Hotel Aracoeli in the centre of the town, nice location. Unfortunately we found the room very disappointed, the shower was just beside the bed only separated by a window and the water was out to the whole room. Very dangerous, floor wet. Fridge on the floor beside a low wardrobe, the jackets were touching the floor no way to hang up! The breakfast was not so good, no brioches just a cake and fette biscottate and something salty. The room was a freezer, the lady left open the main window. Other guests were having breakfast with the jackets on! Anyway for one night is fine but I do no recommend for more.

Pros: The location was perfect, the room charming and we were warmly welcomed by the lady who runs the hotel. We also had a lovely view of the lake.
Cons: It was our anniversary and my partner had brought a bottle of the wine we drank when we met to celebrate. When I asked if we could borrow 2 wine glasses I was told that the hotel serves wine, so no... but I could have two plastic ones. This kind of spoiled it, particularly as there was a corkscrew in the room.

Cons: A couple of chairs in the room would would have made it more comfortable.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Lovely communal breakfast in lively bar 100m away. Great bathroom. Quirky furnishing and fittings. Helpful staff.
Cons: No Wifi in room.
7.1 Good
Pros: Quiet location
Cons: No view
7.5 Good
Pros: Location is perfect, only two doors off the main (actually pretty much only) street of the little town of Orta San Giulio. The town is a delight, on the edge of Lake Orta looking out to Isola San Giulio and the opposite shore. The staff were helpful.
Cons: The property is not a single property, but a selection of apartments nearby. Unfortunately this meant the one I was in had no WIFI, though the property is advertised as having WIFI (some of the other apartments do). WIFI is something I consider essential, and I would not have made the booking if I had known there was no WIFI. The shower head was loose on the fitting, making it impossible to shower without holding it: I had to jury-rig a fix with a hand-towel.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Very friendly helpful staff. Large room.
Cons: No television. Shower too small to use. Could only get one leg in it.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We've stayed here before and would always choose the Piccolo Olina if available. It's quirky - with rooms in more than one location, but with a central office - and maybe not for everyone if you're looking for a conventional place. But it has a great atmosphere and delightful staff. Breakfast is in a separate place on the main square with a chance to eat outside in fine weather. The choice at breakfast is excellent and tempts you to stay there eating for a long time. The central location is great. Orta San Giulio is car-free, so there is a walk from any drop-off to the hotel office.
Cons: The indoor chairs in the breakfast room are not very comfortable. Some visitors might find the stairs difficult.

Pros: The hotel was spotlessly clean, the staff were fantastic and the food wonderful.
6.3 Good
Pros: The highlight of our stay at the hotel Cortese was the dinner at the hotel restaurant. The seasonal menu was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Kudos to the chef! On the flip side- for Italy and in comparison to Michelin-star restaurants we visited throughout Italy, this restaurant is on the pricy side...
Cons: The hotel boastst a 4 star rating, which is reflected in the price, but not in the quality of the hotel infrastructure and competent hotel staff. The toilet cover in the room was broken. Our request to repair or change it was not followed up - so we requested a change of room, which was only reluctantly granted by the receptionist. A manager or supervisor was not on site.

Pros: Lovely setting with gardens, large terrace and swimming pool. The staff are impeccable, very professional yet also friendly and helpful.

Interesting and unusual menu in the restaurant and our evening meal was the best of our three week trip around Italy. Outstanding breakfast!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff was friendly and accommodating. Answered all questions. If you can, visit the nearby lake (Lake Orta) for a swim or casual stroll. Scenery is amazing and the tourist-less streets are a nice break from Rome, etc.
Cons: I might be nitpicking, but I was slightly disappointed the room wasn't furnished with its own coffee pot so I could make coffee/tea at my own leisure.

Pros: This is a gem in the Lake Orta area. The staff was very friendly and spoke great english. The breakfast was wonderful and the setting is very peaceful.

The town of Orta, 20 to 30 minutes away by walking, sits on the lake and is the base for the ferry out to the island and the trail up the sacred mountain.

Pros: Hotel well located (4km away from Orta San Giulio). Room was large with nice view over the lake which is just after the main road. We also had access to a small private area with 4 beach chairs where you can go swimming in the lake.
Cons: Room was old: bathroom with small shower and even a bidet, AC without age (didn't work well, the owner offered us to change room but it was the same in the other room so finally we get a fan as the temperature was really high). Breakfast was ok but seemed factory-made.

The lake was excellent for swimming in and very refreshing. Ferry pick up at Giardinetti taking you to Orta San Giulio etc... As we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary whilst there, the staff presented us with two beautiful Alessi cups and saucers which was most kind of them and which we will cherish!!

6.3 Good
Pros: Infrastructure outside the hotel (huge swimming pool, nautic equipments.... ) and direct acces to the lake The beautiful lake view The amability and kindfullness of the staff The high quality restaurant and its view Comfortable beds
Cons: The building (and parking -when you arrive) look very cheap and the hotel is closed to the road and a camping. This creates a real disappointment. The decoration of the rooms need a serious refurbishement (awful mix of colours that do not fit together) and the lobbies of the hotel are partially refurbished with ikea-like furnitures or not refurbished at all. In a nutshell no harmony in the decoration which also generates disappointment (not expected for a 4 star hotel) Bathroom = well below 4 star hotel The swimming pool is open to everybody during the day (not mentionned on booking.com) so during shiny days you are not in a remote and quite area that you could expect for a 4 stars-hotel. Breakfast : large variety of products with clearly satisfying quantity but low quality of juices, bread, jam. The breakfast room needs being redecorated as well.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. I upgraded to an exec lake view room - it was a lovely view. The room had a double bed and TV on a mezzanine level. The entrance level had tea point, mini bar, table/chairs, sofa, TV, wardrobe, safe, balcony (with table/chairs), bathroom. Easy access to the supermarket (10 mins), lake walk (20mins to end of Pettenasco), a few restaurants. Pool was great size for some morning laps! Also smaller warmer pool was lovely to chill and stare at the view! Also easy access to the lake. There were kayaks, pedalo and paddle boards for hire. Boat jetty at the hotel - boats go twice daily to Orta (€5).
Cons: The external was a little dated.

Pros: Everything
Cons: na
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very good value for money! We loved the position, it was our base for day trips around the lakes, and the tranquillity of the area. The room was clean, large, comfortable. The owners and the staff very welcoming and accommodating. Last but not least: Osteria San Martino just below!
Cons: Note: there is no air conditioning (a fan is in the room) so during the day, in the heatwave period, it might get very hot. Just turn on the fan and it will be fine. Everyone we met around the lakes told us that temperatures above 30 degrees were absolutely unusual until this year, hence why air conditioning is not very usual around the lake.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful place and very friendly staff making you feel welcome :-)
10.0 Excellent

Cons: up on the hill
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely room in a beautiful old building incorporating a restaurant (which was also excellent but pricey). Italian style breakfast ingredients with kettle in your room. Very quiet and peaceful. Had a swallow's best just outside our room.
Cons: Not a complaint but you need to be aware that you have to leave your car in the public car park about 100 metres away as the property is down a Warren of tiny streets that cars can't negotiate easily. Staff speak good English and we very friendly.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Gisella and Sebastian made us really comfortable and helped us out whenever they could. We ate Sebastian's Osteria on the ground floor several times and they coped well with suggesting dishes for a coeliac and a vegan. The location in a little quiet hamlet up the hill from the lake shore and main road make is a restful place to sleep. Note though, car recommended. The building is quaint, with the apartments and rooms on two floors around a central courtyard.
