It was such a pleasure staying in this hotel..Traditional family run hotel where the staff are so friendly and helpful.Breakfast was lovely,view spectacular,rooms super clean (as was the whole hotel and gardens).The hotel is in the best position for the whole village...slightly elevated on a hill only 200 metres from the main attractions so able to take advantage of the view.. Can't say enough about this lovely hotel.

Breakfast could be a bit better (both in terms of quality and variety).
Good location, just a few walking minutes from the historic town centre, but with a view of the lake. Modern building with large terrasse and good street access and parking.

Poor tv system. Tv from 90's. Not the best wifi.
Staff and general comfort of privately owned hotel. Private parking. Wonderful setting.

The amazing junior suite. The friendly and helpful staff. The views of the lake.

The hotel is 2 minutes walk from the village of Orta so very convenient for all the restaurants and right next to the lake it has beautiful breath taking.vews so be sure to book a room with a view its worth the extra 20 euros.

The hotel overlooks beautiful Lake Orta with the little lakeside town just a short walk away. Spaceous rooms, helpful staff and a good restaurant.
September 14, 2014
Our room was a triple and very spacious with a high ceiling. The view of Lake Orta was partial due to being on one side of the hotel but it was an excellent view of the lake and the small island. Breakfast was on the terrace and the view was splendid. Hotel facilities were good including the heated pool, bar and restaurant. A family run hotel with excellent staff who were very friendly.

Walls a bit thin and could hear the lady in the next room walking around and then the baby crying at 7am but it wouldn't stop me returning.
The reception staff were very helpful and made suggestions as to where we could go. We were so glad that they directed us up to Mottarone (hope that's the correct name)- the views were unmissable, simply stunning! Thank you.

air-con is on from 3pm-1am daily, similar to most hotels in Orta though.
Attentiveness of staff for all my friends and family who stayed here during for my wedding in Orta - they did everything they could to help with our stay. Fantastic outdoor facilities: pool, table tennis and relaxing garden area. Great location: easy to potter into the town, very close to the crazy golf/tennis courts. Free hassle free onsite parking - a real asset in Orta. Very family friendly with a family run feel, very relaxed atmosphere.

If we would of had an east room/balcony overlooking the pool people could have looked up at us. Booking early I think scored us a great private room/balcony on the south side.
The whole experience was excellent. Our south room was especially nice with a very private balcony overlooking lake & island. Room 209. Breakfast on nice overlook east terrace had cappuccinos, hard boiled eggs, yogurt+fruit, croissants, 3 meats, 4 cheezes, OJ...all you can eat. Pool was very clean. Location was perfect for walking the lakeshore, the Assisi park on hilltop, down into town. We parked our car for free at hotel & never moved it for 3 days. Staff spoke good English and even got me ice! Let me print my airline ticket for free on internet. Had a great seafood dinner at Hotel Leon but glad we chose Brussola for the lodging. Rick Steves was right again!

The bathrooms were tired & need updating.
Awesome views from all 4 of the rooms we stayed in! The owners of this family run hotel were incredibly welcoming, kind and helpful. We will definitely be going back.

The helpfulness of staff, the amazing service, the relaxed atmosphere, old world charm and the stunning view from the terrace (and our room).

Only negative not enough sunloungers.
The views are amazing from the hotel. Food at breakfast was very nice. Staff were all friendly. Our visit was for our son's wedding.

We stayed at the hotel for one week: a large family of 12 perople including grandparents, children with spouses, and grandchildren (1/2, 2 and 5 years). The swimming pool area is secluded and safe for the small children. Excellent restaurant at the hotel. Short walking distance to the centre of Orta san Giulio. We experienced a family-run hotel with a freindly and forthcoming staff.
July 21, 2014
Overall, the design and interiors of the hotel are a bit stuffy and could do with an update. My room was quite small (I had a double room).
While the location is a bit off the main piazza and the lake, it is central enough to get to most restaurants and the lake with a short walk. The hotel does have its own pool and a great terrace with stunning views of the lake and the area. Also, the breakfast buffet is generous by Italian standards.
