We stayed heee for a week five people age 75, 48, 58, 21 and 19 The hotel is very mixed some of the rooms Have been refurbished our first bedroom had a broken shower and the air con did not work so we got moved to another room which had a lovely bathroom but no toilet seat, apparently they couldn't get any to fit! The bed was comfortable but a total mis match of bedding, no balcony and on a pretty busy road, the towels were so thin you could almost put your finger through! The air con wasn't that efficient and frequently went off apparently they can't do laundry and have the air con on at same time! Breakfast was a strange affair, cereal no toaster and lots of cheese, quiche, pizza and hams and fish the fruit juice was like water The hot water urn broke and there was nowhere to get hot water for tea apart from the coffee machine but if you went near that you ran the risk of being shouted at by the staff! Staff were mixed some nice some rude and really quite unhelpful The snacks during the day were a nice touch We used the car park which was handy as the walk was too far for my father to walk into the centre Rooms and clean towels every day although often at 5:30:6pm when you wanted to come back and get ready for dinner Not brilliant and I wouldn't stay again I'm afraid…
Hotel Santa Catarina is located about a 15-20 minute walk from the main lake-front area of Orta San Giulio. It is very easy to find the hotel when you’re driving into the area. Our room was a lot more basic than we expected. The bed was uncomfortable and the shower in the bathroom could do with being upgraded, however it was fine for a few nights’ stay. Air-con was not included in the overall price and therefore at night the room was very stuffy. The underground car park was the main reason we chose the hotel. It’s worth knowing that this costs €10 per day and you are not guaranteed a space if it’s already full. However, we were told there is a free car park nearby. The ladies on the reception desk spoke great English and were very helpful.
Very clean. Newly decorated and modern Ikea style. Refreshments and cake available free from 3pm was good. Breakfast amazing choice of gourmet styled food. We enjoyed the 20 minute walk along the lake into Orta. This includes a hill. Very hot when we stayed no AC in hotel or room. On the last day we stayed a lot of breakfast food had been eaten and selection limited and not re-filled. The bed was not comfortable. There was no where to sit in shade in afternoon and no sun umbrella. For money hotel good value and staff helpful.
Two couples: we had a quad room, on the top floor (3), open plan layout, two double beds separated by a long mid height cupboard, enough privacy at night. Both bedroom sections had separate access to the bathroom. Bathroom had a quirky w.c. a slender, higher than usual, white ceramic creation...it worked OK. The room had sloping beams, we re-positioned a lounge chair to prevent anyone accidentally head butting one beams which sloped down from a high to very low position. Double glazed, full length glass doors led out onto a small patio with a pretty view over an adjacent walled garden. The three armchairs were comfortable, but badly in need of re-upholstery. Bathroom clean, plenty of towels, and hot water, though taps a little tricky to manipulate for temperature control. Have rated this property higher because of the breakfast which was superb both in variety and quality fresh produce, also pride in presentation of the buffet. We had an early arrival arrival from Milan Airport; we advised the hotel in advance of this and requested baggage held until our room was available. The senior receptionist seemed unaware of our early arrival (around 9.30am) and her manner was a little testy, though more pleasant on the second day. Orta village was a pleasant walk, a little up and down; we varied our walking route during our two day stay, the foreshore promenade walk was a pleasant approach to Orta village, and the waterfront. A superb Agri Gelateria near the accommodation was our frequent diversion.…
Wifi? Pretty much non-existant, even on the ground floor, sporadic, anywhere other than within 10metres of reception, forget it. The bathroom was a triumph of form over substance with the toilet designed by and presumably for, Kate Moss and the bath so small a normal person couldn't lie in it, with a hand held shower with nowhere to put it except to hold it - if you Ever work out how to get the right temperature. Breakfast was great and the staff tremendous, but, golly what a lot of money has been wasted, here!
We have now been about 5 times and it is a no fuss, straightforward hotel. Well located within walking distance of restaurants and the town. Rooms comfortable and excellent breakfasts with free snacks from 3p.m. Free parking nearby.
We stayed, as part of a large group, in the hotel for 5 days. As others have commented it's a modern 3 starish hotel. Our room was clean and beds comfortable: downside was that we were on the road-side of the hotel and that got a bit noisy early in the morning: ask for one on the other side of the hotel for best night's sleep. The breakfast is very good with a very wide range of meats, cheeses, cereals etc.: it's one of the biggest 'spreads' I have seen. The front desk staff were very accommodating: on the noisy room issue they tried to find an alternative - even going as far as looking at one of their apartments outside the hotel - but in the end we decided to stay. Price-wise it compares very reasonably with others in the area. For us the distance to the town was not an issue: it was nice to have a stroll after dinner and a drink in the town centre: others may think otherwise. Definitely would go back.…
Hotel very clean. Room cleaned daily and new towels daily.. Great fresh breakfast. Big choice of continental.. Lovely staff, very busy, especially Eliana... Bit dated basic hotel, but clean.. Typical 3star itallian hotel.. Free wifi is sketchy, only in reception area.. Bit of a trek from the centre.. Downhill, but remember you have to come back up, about 15 minutes!! Wearisome if you have to do that twice a day... In the heat! AC is intermittent. No night staff, so ask for it to be turned on before they go, as you can't get it thru the night ! Good value, but personally we'd stay in the square area, with a designated swimming area on the lake..
Just back from a 7 day stay beautiful Lake Orta, Italy. We stayed at the hotel Santa Caterina, Orta San Guilio. The hotel is very clean and offers a good continental breakfast buffet which is very good. The staff are friendly. The rooms are quite basic, clean but not many facilities (the TV was the smallest I have seen in years not that you to Lake Orta to watch TV). There is air conditioning in the rooms but you have to ask for it to be put on and it is a bit intermittant (dont leave it until the middle of the night as there is no reception cover). You can only get wifi on the ground floor - it is patchy but free. A lot of the guests seemed to pass through and stay for a couple of nights as they this beautiful part of Italy. This hotel ideal for that. Popular with walkers and cyclists. The Hotel is on a steep hill. There is a 8 minute walk to the train station - uphill with no pavements watchout for the traffic if you are dragging suitcases or have young children. The main part of town with all the restuarants, ferries etc is a 15-20 minute walk down a reasonably steep hill. Remember you have to walk back up again or pay Euros10 for a taxi. On reflection as we were staying for 7 days we would have prefered to stay down in San Guilio Plaza itself, rather than going up and down the hill to get in and out of town as they is not much to see or do around the hotel itself. Special mention for Eliana who was excellent and helpful.…
Wifi doesn't work in the rooms. The A/C is not included and costs an additional 15 Euros for a triple room. The welcome buffet which they market consist of tired cookies wrapped in plastic and sweet juice that never have come close to any fruit whatsoever. Parking in the hotels garage is an additional 8 euros. Walking to the village is hazardous since you for about 50 meters have to walk in the street where the cars drive fast. In he night the road is dark and cars drive in 100 km/hrs and you walk very close to the traffic. If possible, chose another hotel. The breakfast was good though and so was the staff.
