Set on the shores of the picturesque Lake Orta, Hotel San Rocco is surrounded by the ancient walls of a monastery. It boasts a swimming pool and views of the enchanting San Giulio Island. The San Rocco was a convent for 150 years. The Baroque-style Villa Gippini was later added to the original building. The elegant restaurant features regional and international cuisine and breathtaking lake views. There is a beautiful garden, a golf course, and a beauty centre called the Body Harmony Center. In fine weather you can access the Wellness Roof Garden, set on the 4th floor. A billiards table and a fully equipped conference centre are provided.

If you visit Lake Orta the best location for a stay is the Hotel San Rocco. Directly on the lake with a swimming pool and views to the island and the hills beyond it is the perfect spot. The problem is the hotel knows that and takes customers for granted. When we arrived we found the reception staff to be below average for a hotel of this standard. They did not have the suite we booked but gave us a superior room with a good balcony and lake view. I pointed out that this room was less expensive than the one booked but had to argue before getting a 200 Euro reduction. The room was average in size but the best feature was the large balcony overlooking the lake. The balcony was large enough to have had sun loungers and the hotel should consider providing those. We didn't use the restaurant as there were other more attractive options available within walking distance including the excellent Restaurant La Motta. Breakfast was served in a crowded room with a low-ceiling and no open window - not ideal from a Covid security perspective. The buffet was extensive but the hot food was of too low a standard for this grade of hotel and there were not enough staff for busy periods. The hotel should move breakfast service onto their beautiful restaurant terrace overlooking the lake. A very useful feature is the basement car park which is free. Don't be put off by the car parks and no-traffic signs on the way into the village. Keep down the hill and look for the hotel sign. Honk the horn if the gate is shut!

Room Tip: Go for the Superior lake view in the main hotel not villa gippini. Ask for the top floor.

I stayed at the San Rocco hotel for two nights together with my husband after our wedding day. We choose this location because we wanted something special for the occasion so we booked one of their suites. The location was amazing but the staff of the hotel is terrible, where should I begin: when we arrived I was still in my wedding dress and we had quite a lot of bags with us, nobody helps us with our bagguages and we had to walk back and forth in the hotel in order to bring everything in the room, we went several times to the reception to ask questions and every time they asked us a confirmation that we were sleeping in that hotel (in a very cold way). Breakfast is nothing special itself and we had to wait more than 30 min to order a cappuccino, they also forgot to bring bread at our table and they brought that when we were ready with our breakfast. At the end of our little honey moon my dad came to pick us up, this weekend was a gift from him so he came to pay at the reception: the woman at the reception asked twice to my father if we were really clients at the San Rocco and after a long Check in their system they let my father pay. At the bar they didn’t want to make an espresso for him because the bar opens only at 10.00 a.m and he was there at 9.50 a.m. What can I say it’s a pity that those kind of places does not invest in a good service, perhaps they think that a beautiful landscape is enough.

Nice location, right on the lake. Great swimming pool with sun beds and clean towels. The breakfast is extensive with plenty of choice and tasty coffee / tea. We had booked half board and will not choose it next time. There are plenty of restaurants in the area. What we especially remember is the warm welcome during dinner by Massimo. He knows the wine list and recommends the fine wines of his native Piedmont. Makes the meal special again.

Coming here in later September was gorgeous, I imagine this large hotel is quite busy in the Summer months, but in September it was lovely and quiet and we had the pool all to ourselves. Our room had a gorgeous view over Lago D’Orta and the island, plus we overlooked the remarkable pool on the lake. There is parking available underground and the staff was friendly. We were lucky to stay here on our anniversary and the hotel surprised us with a lovely bottle of Prosecco and nibbles to help us celebrate. Truly above and beyond and something so special we will remember forever. We had dinner in their restaurant which was a tasty night filled with beautifully prepared food and fine-dining service. Well located in the middle of the city, I recommend taking a sunset walk into the main square, grabbing a gelato and watching the sunset with the locals. It was a magical night.

Pros- hotel is well situated in this pedestrian town. Beautiful views and an abundance of outdoor space to sit and marvel at the views. The staff is very helpful and efficient. Cons- basic rooms are quite small. Our room did not have a closet. There are many stairs to climb: to the breakfast area , to the reception desk and to the hotels rooms. While there is an elevator it is very small and unusable if you are claustrophobic.
