Pro’s:
Rooms are very nice, clean and include a sweet small balcony. We didn’t like the bed in our room (round) so they moved us on the 2nd night.
Internet- there is free internet in the lobby (WIFI) in addition to permanent laptop for the guests usage.
The junior staff members were absolutely fantastic! (we barely encountered the owners) They gave us a warm welcoming, very good advices regarding the attractions at the area. Initially we didn’t plan to stay there for more than 1 night but decided to stay there for another night due to fireworks festival took place in the adjacent city, of which we were notified thanks to the front-desk young girl, Eliana.
In addition, she was extremely kind as she assisted us making a reservation to another hotel in Cannobio for the following night.
One more thing we liked is that they reduced the rate per night due to our decision to stay additional night. 95 Euros per night instead of 110.

Cons:
They have a parking lot down under the hotel, however, they charge supplement of about 7-8 Euros, pretty niggling from my perspective. The free parking lot is about 5-7 minutes walking.
The location is a bit far from the village center, about 15-20 minutes walking down the road.
Coffee- though the breakfast is very rich, we were very disappointed from the coffee which was a cheap machine coffee and was very poor.

Overall it’s a very nice hotel, not so fancy, and thanks to fantastic service we got, we can easily rate our experience as very good.

This is a strange little hotel, that would perhaps be best described as a B&B instead. We had a glitch with our reservation, but it was promptly resolved- even if we had a long scary moment thinking we were out of a room to sleep in for that night.
The rooms we got were extremely simple, but clean and well kept. There was a towel issue going on, but not in our floor. The decoration is best described as crazy. Somebody already uploaded a picture of the plastic chair/flower pot arrangement in each window so you can judge for yourself.
The area is not really pedestrian-friendly. You can walk to the center and the beach (we did), but it is not pleasurable.
The staff and signs would lead you to believe there is a restaurant at the hotel, but that's not true. The fact is that there is an associated restaurant by the lake, and the hotel staff will drive you there for free, in a very Italian, somewhat scary 5 minute ride. Said restaurant, BTW, is plenty good, with splendid service and good prices.
There is breakfast at the hotel, and it is incredibly good for this price level. Nice at any price point, i may add. The cold cuts were fantastic.
There is free WIFI that wasn't supposed to work in our rooms, but it did.
The staff we saw was comprised of very young girls- in their teens or very early twenties. So they were courteous, enthusiastic and overall very nice, if somewhat inexperienced. Which fits the prices of the hotel very nicely, since the rooms are VERY economical. In a nutshell, a good value, unpretentious hotel. It is quite possible that we will go back for a longer stay.

We booked here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. No complaints at all. Nice big room, air conditioning on for 24 hours if you wanted it. Excellent breakfast - so much choice!! Good service, English speaking staff and relatively secure parking. It was about 15 minutes down into the town but a lovely walk along the side of the lake. Orta San Guilgio has a large choice of restaurants and bars etc to suit all pockets. Also well worth taking the 4 Euro trip across to the island for lunch at the restaurant there. Would have no problem in staying again or recommending to others. This along with other hotels we booked, was through BBPlanet and all have more than come up to the promised standard.

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

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.

We had a room on the first floor, that opened out onto a small patio. The hotel reflects its proximity to Milan with very modern furnishings and decor. Lots of modern art and artifacts scattered throughout the building.

The hotel was air conditioned, which was very much appreciated during the heat wave we were experiencing during our trip. We like that the hotel was not right on the main piazza where most of the restaurants in Orta S.G. are located, but about a 15 minute walk along the beautiful lake front.

The breakfast buffet was the best we had anywhere during our 3 week stay in Italy; a tremendous variety of cheeses, meats, fruits, breads, juices, and delicious coffee too.
We loved our four nights here and would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for five nights at Hotel Santa Caterina in mid June. We booked in Januray for 100 euros a night but saw on another booking site a few weeks before we were due to go to Italy that rooms had been reduced and managed to get our 5 nights for €350 B&B.
Our room had a balcony and was at the front. The room was basic, and reminded us of a travelodge, as wardrobe (no doors and quite high) space was limited. But the room and bathroom and whole hotel was spotlessly clean. And quiet at night, we slept very well.

Breakfast was superb. We rarely saw any staff as it was help yourself. Perhaps the coffee and tea could be hotter. And I think the food should be covered. But the selection was outstanding, as others have mentioned. Lovely fresh fruit and bread and lots of it!
The afternoon tea, coffee, drinks and cakes is lovely, cakes all homemade and yummy.
It is 15 minute walk into Orta San Guilio to eat, shop or get the boat over to the island or cruise Lake Orta.
But it is a beautiful walk, however could be taxing to some people.

We had other lovely walks around the lake once we found our bearings.

We didn't have a car but it would have been a great bonus especially to get to Lake Maggiore. But Lake Orta was truly beautiful.

We would definitely stay at Hotel Santa Caterina again.

Arrived here after just over an hours drive from Malpensa airport, Milan. The receptionist was very efficient and pleasant and even though we were early, allowed us to check in straight away. We were advised of places to visit and how to get to the lake by walking. Which by the way was a pleasant 15 minute walk from the hotel. The room was comfortable and clean and parking was available in the basement at 8 euros per night or free if you chose to park in the lockup area approx. 300 metres away. Breakfast was included in our room rate and was quite a good selection. The area here on Lake Orta is absolutely stunning and we spent a pleasant four days in this area.

We visit this area in August each year and have always chosen Santa Caterina. We have positively reviewed this hotel previously and our views echo the previous reviewer from
Bedfordshire. Well located, fantastic breakfasts and a a snack bar available afternoon and evenings. Friendly staff and the garden room was quiet and peaceful.

In all, a good hotel which suits our needs.

We arrived early in the day for our booking of six nights and not surprisingly our room was not ready. However we were given cold drinks and invited to park in the underground car park to make unloading our luggage easier when our room was free as it was an extremely hot day. We were then told that in view of the length of our stay we could use the car par free of charge for the duration (saving 8 euros a day) a very nice gesture.
Our "superior room" was on the second floor spacious and very clean with a good sized well equipped bathroom, a small fridge, a small flat screen t.v. and a small balcony with a couple of chairs with a view of the lake in the distance. We found all of the staff to be very helpful and very willing to provide any information which was needed. The air conditioning was not operating for our first night and it really was needed because of the heat, a request at reception resulted in it being available throughout the rest of our stay.
The breakfasts are worthy of note. An enormous selection which could not fail to satisfy even the fussiest eater. Breads and rolls, meats, cheeses, eggs, cereals, fresh fruit and cakes. The selection changed each day which kept things interesting and there were plenty of hot and cold drinks available.
In the early evenings when returning before getting ready to go out to eat in town it was very welcome to have the "snack room" where hot and cold drinks and a selection of cakes were always available free of charge.
There are some good long walks available in the area around the hotel overlooking the lake, and on the one wet and stormy day we had we drove to Stresa on lake Maggiore where we took a boat to the Borromean Islands.
The town of Orta San Giulio is very pretty with a variety of things to see and do and plenty of restaurants and cafes serving food and drinks at reasonable prices. A trip to the island is a must and we enjoyed a very pleasant lunch lakeside in the only restaurant on the island. The town can be reached by a variety of paths from the hotel the length of the walk varies but all were perfectly manageable for us and added to the enjoyment of the trip into town. During the day the mini train runs and there is plenty of parking if a drive is the preferred option.
All in all, a very clean friendly and comfortable hotel at a very reasonable price. We felt staying there was well worth the walk into town and would thoroughly recommend it. We would not hesitate to stay again. The mosquitoes were very active during our stay in common with many lake and riverside locations so do take some strong insect repellant !
