Nice room (with little too hard bed for our taste), very nice view from the balcony facing the lake. Helpful staff (and a very cute hotel dog!) Pool was big enough, with basic pool service (Beer, drinks, ice cream and pool towels). Great location just minutes from the town, quite steep hills so you get a free workout going up and down. If you visit by car make sure to take a drive around the lake, very nice!

A family of 5 we stayed here for 5 nights. There is a lovely swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds/sunchairs and a small pool bar for drinks and ice cream. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty with great coffee and juices - overseen by attentive waiters. The hotel is well located just above the town (only a few minutes walk) with some stunning views over the island and the lake. The rooms are traditional and comfortable. The hotel is run by a family and even their calm and gentle dog potters around reception. This is a well run typically Italian hotel in a great location with such pretty views. Recommended.

Views to the island and the lake fantastic, location perfect right above the little town. September 30 we were told A/C not available because it is “too cold at night”...lucky for us the room stayed at 25 degrees centigrade (77 Fahrenheit) during the day and we were comfortable but in fairness I book hotels with air conditioning and they say they have it here but they don't. Lighting in rooms old school and dim. Plenty of parking and good wi-fi. A solid 3 star hotel, probably would stay again. Staff fine.

We love Orta and have been coming regularly for 11 years. This was our 7th stay at the Bussola and is unlikely to be our last. We like the location, staff, views and pool. Dinner on the first evening on the balcony overlooking the lake was very good, as were both breakfasts.
