I spent two wonderful days and nights in Al Dom's calm, quiet atmospheric room with a view of the immortal lake that made me think of Dante. Spacious suite that made me want to stay longer, lovely bath, and a view to die for. Breakfast, under Covid circumstances, was personally served, meditative, varied, fresh, with lashings of coffee. Massimo is a gentleman. Lago d'Orta is a corner of heaven, and Al Dom sets the tone.

Al Dom B&B is is the lake's edge just a couple of minutes from the village centre. The very old and quirky property is exceptionally clean and well kept. Massimo the host is incredibly diligent at maintaining standards, is most helpful and a pleasure to meet.

My room was spotlessly clean, with a wonderful view of the lake from the balcony. Bathroom was well-equipped and modern. Breakfast was good: cereals, cold meats, cheeses, breads, croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs etc. The host Massimo is friendly and helpful and speaks excellent English. The location is perfect, very close to the village centre, but not close enough to be noisy. There is a lovely lakefront garden.
Not cheap, but worth it. Highly recommended.

Orta San Giulio as a place, perhaps the MOST beautiful place we have experienced in our lives ! And, that, is a huge statement at our ripe ol ages of 68/ 71 since these eyes have taken in a lot of beauty in the world. The Al Dom B & B is perfect pitch for this lovely romantic and poetic destination. The Owners care deeply about their guests and offer 5 star hospitality quietly and with no fuss. The views of the lake from each room are beautiful along with the sound of bells that toll & echo a quarter of a mile across the lake. The island that is 1/4 mike off shore is called Isola San Giulio where there is a 19 C Monastery that is home to over 40 Cloistered Nuns. The majesty & beauty of Isola San Giulio is all captured from your bedroom view @ Al Dom …. We woke up to the smell of fresh croissants baking and a delicious Breakfast every day. We can’t say enough about our stay @ Al Dom B & B. Thank You to Massimo & his lovely wife for making us feel so at home ! We also enjoyed a tour of the lake on Massimo’s cool vintage boat … James Bond style !! Be sure to do this ! 👍🏻
You will fall in love again & again.

Everything about this B&B was perfect. All rooms have a view of the beautiful lake and are quiet and spotlessly clean. The host, Massimo and his wife, are perfectionists and we felt so much at home in this little piece of Paradise. Our room was extremely comfortable with a lovely bathroom. Breakfasts were outstanding with an amazing fruit salad plus additional fresh fruits, delicious and incredibly fresh breads, croissants, pastries - all so light and delicious. Boiled eggs with special cutters and lovely honey dispensers as well as home made jams. In addition, plenty of delectable hams and cheeses, plus freshly made coffee/selection of teas. Massimo took us out for an hour's boat ride on the lake - a very special Riva boat complete with James Bond music! We paid extra for this of course but it was worth every euro. The decor at this lovely house is gorgeous and every detail so carefully considered. We are so pleased we chose this hotel - it was definitely one of the great highlights of our stay at the Lakes and Milan.

Massimo, our host, has a wonderful B&B. In these Covid times, there is always a worry about how clean a place is..... there are no worries here. It is absolutely spotless. Our room had a fantastic view of the island and lake, and was very large. The B&B has a lovely inner courtyard that guests can use to relax, or the lakeside garden, from which you can go swimming directly into the lake. Massimo had lots of suggestions for great restaurants and things to do. This hotel was a great find and we would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about staying on Lake Orta or in San Guilio. Oh.... and the breakfasts are delicious... much better than the normal Italian spread!

More than a B&B. More like a hotel. Very helpful owner. Lovely room with balcony. Excellent breakfast. Very good central location with views of the lake, although partly obscured by a large tree. But Al Dom has its own private lakeside garden so you can go there. We were travelling by car and the town does not allow cars apart from residents cars. So the owner has a good system whereby he meets you when you arrive on the outskirts and then leads you to the nearest car park before taking you and your luggage to the door of Al Dom. And then the reverse when you leave. Only downside was breakfast timings - 9am to 10am - which is late when you have a long journey on the day you leave as the earliest you can be taken to the car park is when breakfast finishes - which makes it a bit stressful. If we has understood that when we booked we would not have planned such a long drive on the day we departed. Otherwise, the perfect place to stay and somewhere we would like to go back to again.

My two university age children and I spent four nights at Al Dom in early July 2023. Lake Orta is a magical part of Piedmont, and San Giulio is at the heart of it. Much less touristy and commercial than Lakes Como and Maggiore. After visiting Como and returning to Al Dom at the end of the day, my kids sat and looked over to Isola San Giulio and the hills in the distance - the consensus was that it was much more beautiful.

Massimo runs a wonderful B&B at Al Dom. The rooms are perfect, beds are comfortable and the lakefront garden is perfect for relaxing after a day of walking. We cherished our early morning swims in the lake (how is it 24C?) before enjoying the wonderful breakfast that Massimo provides. He is a gracious host, and very helpful with information and recommendations.

We hope to be back soon...

An absolutely perfect experience! Al Dom is beautiful, comfortable, and elegant. The breakfast is amazing, and the hospitality is top notch. Massimo is a delightful host who makes everything so easy. Highly recommend his boat trip around the lake. A truly wonderful experience in a beautifully restored historic home. Every detail is lovely. We will definitely return.

Unfortunately, we stayed in this B&B in August for our honeymoon. We chose the Al Dom as it appeared to have many very good reviews but sadly our experience was more than disappointing. From the moment we arrived, we felt unwelcome, as if we were intruding into their home. We felt watched when we were leaving or entering the building and got the feeling Massimo and Jenny wanted us out of the B&B as much as possible. My wife became unwell during our stay for a few days and so was unable to attend breakfast. I explained this and took a banana, from the breakfast table, to give to my wife. Massimo challenged me about this upon leaving the dining room and explained the banana was not allowed in the room, even though she was unwell. I got the impression that he was more concerned with not being able to come in and clean/check the room than he was with my wife's health. He kept referring to the porous floors ???? It is true that the building and décor itself are indeed beautiful and the view is perfect but the overall uneasiness experienced makes it an uncomfortable and awkward stay. The fact we stayed for a fortnight, in their best suite, cost us a significant proportion of our wedding budget and in hindsight, we wished we'd stayed at the San Rocco, who were always most accommodating whenever we called in. All in all, although nothing could possibly have spoilt our big day, we would not recommend the Al Dom and although we plan to return to Orta one day, we will not be staying there. We have given it significant thought prior to placing this review and even though we'll never return to this place, we thought others should be aware of what we encountered before deciding where to book.

This review has been in place for 7 months and has been taken off for some reason. I contacted trip adviser who stated the reason and asked me to resubmit. I believe that both good and bad reviews should be noted so you can make an informed decision. I don't want anyone else to experience what we did !

Hi, Orta San Giulio is only a 45 mins drive from Milan Malpensa airport. If you are going to hire a car, bear in mind Orta San Giulio is pedestrianised and you will have to park just outside the old town. Orta San Guilio is so beautiful and peaceful we didn't move the car in the two days we were there. If you don't plan to hire a car, then a pre booked chauffeur driven car is not inconceivable, as it's quite close to the airport. Have a great time Lesley.
