A great hotel, well situated with good views over Lake Orta and with good service and food. A good Saga tour which included boat trips onto the lake and a coach trip to Switzerland to view the Matterhorn

Not 4 star. Wardrobe broken & safe not working at first. Dead fly in milk and had to go down 2 flights of stairs to get milk each time. Waiters rushed off their feet so meal times took hours. Best part was the comfortabe chairs under the trees by the lake and wonderful views.

Although on my own, I went with Titan tours, who organised everything meticulously. The hotel is in an enviable position on the edge of the lake, but unless you have a car you have to rely on the twice daily public boat to take you anywhere, (for example, to Orta San Giulia). The hotel is clean and well run and staff were always helpful. My room was on the ground floor overlooking the lake with a small private patio, ideal for sunning. The pool was beautiful and even in very hot June weather was quite often almost empty. My one reservation is that the hotel has different levels with steps, steps to the pool, steps even within bedrooms. No where were there handrails, and some of the Titan group were struggling. It would be so easy to put right and so much less of a worry to older visitors. I would go there again.

No way is this a 4 star hotel. 2 star yes, 3 star maybe but never 4 star. The bathroom here needs ripping out and full replacement. Letting paying guest to stay in this moulded filled bedroom / bathroom is completely unacceptable. No amount of mould removal spray will deal with this. The sealant on foot plate and tiles must have been missing for months. Whoever manages the hotel rooms and maintains them in the management department needs removing from their post and a new manager who cares for excellent in customer service put in their place. Think twice folks very hard before booking this hotel or at least ask them if they'd updated their filthy mouldy bathrooms.

Great location directly on the lake, very clean and staff also helpful with information about the area. The restaurant has a beatiful terrace with views and the dishes are accurate. Also the little spa is a jem of peace and relax. I suggest this location to enjoy Lake Orta.

The lakefront location is lovely. We swam in the lake in preference to the pool. Mind you, we not able to enter the pool because we did not have bathing caps. Be aware of this rule if you intend to use the pool. We had a triple room, with a mezzanine and balcony. It was just big enough, but difficult once the sofa bed was opened. The sofa bed was comfortable. The mezzanine seemed a little flimsy, and the floor dipped in one part. The decor was odd and dated. The shower was, frankly, hilarious, with choices of light colour and different sprays. I giggled every time I was in there. The bathroom was functional. For a triple room it might have been nice to have three seats on the balcony, but the outlook was nice. We were there for a wedding and wanted to iron our outfits. There was no iron in the room so we asked at reception, and they... refused. We were not allowed to iron our own clothes because it was a safety issue. I mean, we have been ironing our clothes for decades and have not managed to cause a fire. But no, we had to give our clothes to the staff to iron. No only did we have to pay for this 'service', we had to follow up to get the clothes back in time. On this basis alone, I would not recommend this hotel. Because the hotel takes in big tour groups it has set rules that impact all guests. Breakfast is too busy, and you cannot order eggs (for example) unless you do so for everyone at your table. But these are huge tables that you may need to share with strangers, so this does not make any sense. And good luck if you can get a barista coffee. They are good, but the queue is looong. We ate at the restaurant one night. It is very pretty and the service was excellent. It is definitely expensive though. This is a stunning part of Italy. The location makes the Approdo a nice option, and it is perhaps a little cheaper than some of its neighbours, but it would be worth weighing that up against the rules and the inconveniences of this hotel.

Spent a week at the Hotel on a HB basis. The Hotel setting on the shore of Lake Orta is ideal and the views from the pool and restaurant are fantastic. The Hotel is exceptionally clean, all the staff are friendly and welcoming. The set menus for the Group varied and it depended on the choice available which was rather limited - some evenings could not be faulted and others were not so good and service could be slow at times. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice. The room which I had (102) had all the facilities you could wish, was spacious and clean, but had absolutely no view at all except for the passage to the restaurant through a window at the side so avoid if you can.

in a beautiful location, right on the edge of the lake. Lovely room, but very cold as the heating was 'hit and miss' my tour manager had to report the problem twice. No instructions on how to switch the heating on, otherwise I could have solved the problem myself. Tea and coffee making facilities were not good! First day OK, but once the tea and coffee were used, there were no further sachets and also no milk, that aspect was very poor The food was OK, but only OK. The staff were great and worked hard. I failed to understand why dogs were allowed in the dining room and were constantly barking.

This is a hotel and restaurant review. Nice spot on the lakes edge Hotel is spotlessly clean, although a 4 star hotel as a well travelled traveller I question that. Rooms somewhat odd. Steps, step down to the balcony, bathroom can be big or small, my towel radiator couldn't be turned on. No instructions for anything, when I needed reception I had to walk down. Tea and coffee sachets are not replenished daily. Dogs in rooms barking all hours, yes dogs! Food was somewhat hit and miss. Staff first class but reception staff can be sharp
