Hotel La Bussola, accessible by car, is a great base for exploring the classic town of Orta San Guilio. It was clean and bright with a balcony view of town and the island. Breakfast was good and the front desk staff was quite helpful. Full service with free parking. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a deluxe double for great views and more space.

Lake Orta is difficult to get to on public transport but it is well worth the effort. This hotel is located above the village and has panoramic views of the lake and island. Ask the hotel to book you a taxi if arriving at the rural station. An excellent quality 3 star hotel, run by a family proud to maintain a personal touch. I wasn't planning on eating at the hotel but ended up taking all my meals on the outdoor terrace and found the food to be excellent. A short 10 minute stroll down into the village centre where you can take a ferry across to the island. Room was spacious and bathroom good for the standard of hotel. Wi-Fi I found to be intermittent but nice to see BBC1 on the in-room satellite TV system.

This is a great gem on Lake Orta. The hotel was situated with beautiful views. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The restaurant was very fresh and authentic. The owner and staff could not have been more accommodating. We spent the last three days of our Italy tour here with a relaxing pace and wonderful accommodations.

Outstanding family owned and operated hotel with equally as good restaurant. The room was very clean with a great view. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. They went out of their way to make sure your stay was perfect; from giving tips on the sites to making arrangements to the airport. It was a perfect vacation from our vacation. Thanks

The best thing about the hotel is the view of the calm lake. Most rooms have good views with a balcony. Outdoor dining room faces the lake also. Pool was not open when we were there, but the air conditioning was turned on Rooms are clean and modern. Interesting that many of the estates on Lake Orta are from people who made their money in the bathroom fixture business, but many negative comments about the bathrooms here. I thought ours was OK. It is a steep walk down to the lake. There are many stairs, but a better way is indirectly following the street. The city is quaint but filled with tourists.

Room Tip: Get a room with balcony and view of the lake.
