Lake Orta is an extraordinarily beautiful lake and Orta San Giulio a lovely town. The swimming at the hotel is first rate -- just jump right in and lovely fresh clear water surrounds you. I enjoyed both breakfast and lunch (excellent perch ravioli). Service was very good. Unfortunately, the rooms are disappointing -- little in the way of decoration, an...

Okay so the wifi doesn't work, the room was small, the air conditioning you can only adjust the temp rather than the on/off and power and the breakfast was okay and I would not really recommend dining in the evening in the Hotel despite the stunning location - but wow - what a place - all the staff were very...

Beatrice checked us in and was SO AMAZING! She was very friendly, helpful, and so kind. We were traveling on our honeymoon and she even sent up a bottle of champagne to congratulate us. She truly makes that hotel incredible. The hotel was beautiful, so much to do there and around it, but I can definitely say that Beatrice went...

We stayed here for 4 nights on a trip through Italy. The location of the hotel is fantastic with the most breathtaking views. Sadly that's where my praise ends. Our room was dark and small. Bathroom in fact was tiny. Our air con didn't work so the room was 28c which was pretty horrific. They pretend to fix it but...

Can't beat the location and view. Nice pool. We stayed for 4 nights with party of 8 and were very happy not using the car. The little town and a few options on boat rides plus some walks pet us entertained. The hotel itself was better than what we expected with the rooms updated. Great breakfast. The restaurant was worth...

We returned here for two nights on another of our summer European road trips. Whilst some consider this overpriced, my opinion is you get what you pay for. This hotel is exquisite in terms of its architecture and location, set on the edge of Lake Orta with an excellent view of the San Guilio island. There's a pool for swimming...

Absolutely overpaid!!!!! Our reservation was lost cause nobody checked the email with my confirmation. That was a very long and not well prepared check-in. No working internet connection in the room! Had to leave the room to get connected. No bathrobes in the room! Not even slippers in the room! TV is only in Italian. Sorry, 2016 with digital TV,...

I visited this hotel recently with my family and found the location really amazing, the staff is friendly and the hotel structure terrific (although some parts are a little tired).

What a pity that a hotel in this location is not better. Everything about it is adequate but it falls short in too many respects. For instance the breakfast is no better than OK. The decor in the rooms is austere. The air conditioning is unresponsive and its controls very difficult to operate. The floors in the corridors accessing the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Rooms are elegantly furnished with a flat-screen TV and minibar. Most have lake views. Rooms in the annexe known as Villa Gippini are also available. The hotel is close to Switzerland and the Prealpine valleys. ... more   less

“Rooms are not large, if you want the best go for a corner lake suite. Lake view rooms not worth the extra cost as windows are tiny.”
