Had the misfortune to stay at this place for 3 nights at the start of a 13 night tour around the Italian Lakes. The hotel is right on the shore of Lake Orta but not with views of Isola San Guilio. We upgraded to a room with a lake view but questionable as to whether or not it was worth...

Dear Mr.Stephen, the first thing I did after reading your review was to check the book of maintenance, the only real problem that had your room, I mean the plug in the basin, was fixed the same day you reported it, the air conditioning do not works if the window is opened or the electronic key is not placed in...

First stop on a 13 day Saga trip and could not have asked for more. Lovely room overlooking the lake of this totally unspoilt part of the world.

L'Approdo sits on the banks of Lake Orta, but doesn't have the views of the Benedictine monastery on St Giulio Isle that some of the more expensive hotels offer. The L'Approdo had two wings, Reception is in the more modern wing. The design is interesting (I'm being polite), all the communal areas are subterranean. Meaning the view from the restaurant...

It took a long time to understand your “interesting” comment …and I am polite, it seems that you have been in another place then here. Our common area are level garden to the lake side, it means restaurant, terrace and tv room, the only room a meter lower is in fact the breakfast room this cause of the 25mt. heated...

A nice modern hotel by the lake with its own little beach and a pool. By modern I mean mostly eighties-nineties design, although some of deco is newer and the bathrooms are 21th century. It's clean and as peaceful as it gets - the Orta lake is one of the most peaceful destinations in the North of Italy, but it's...

A lovely hotel distinguished by it's fantastic lake views and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Lake Orta is smaller than it's more famous neighbours and also quieter - a good thing from our perspective. We had a split level room with a double on a mezzanine and a sofa bed; large balcony and a really good balcony. We booked a...

Fabulous time. Quiet relaxing friendly hotel, restaurant and poolside bar, excellent Ideal if you want to stop the world and get off. Amazing scenery. Couldn't fault. If you want busy this is not for you. Ferry to other villages is a must.

Not a lot in surrounding area but lovely walks and Great Lake views. Excellent pool + relaxation area. Good food + pleasant staff. Rooms clean and had Great Lake view. Food fine. Supermarket, cafe and bar/ restaurant close by. Camp site next door has lovely bar + food. Nice for change.

Friendly, helpful staff who went out of their way to assist. Bedroom was a good size with view of lake as requested. Food in the restaurant was first class. Although not the cheapest was worth every euro. Winewaiter took the time to talk about the local wines we had to drink. Easy access to Pettenasco along lakeside. Will certainly return...
