With two in college here, we have been going regularly to Ithaca for 4.5 years. Usually, we stay at the Super 8 because it is clean, convenient, and comfortable. Last weekend we decided to splurge and stay at La Tourelle. It is EXPENSIVE. Our bed had a VERY soft mattress topper, and DEEP holes where past guests would sit on...

The hotel was very welcoming and well appointed. Our room was very pleasant and attractively arranged in French chateaux style. The bathroom was excellent even having a superb double washbasin unit. Altogether we spent a very pleasant night stop here and wished it could have been longer but we needed to resume our journey to Niagara.

Went to stay since my friend was getting married there a few days ago. So here are multiple reviews. Stay for the hotel, clean lovely rooms, comfortable, great natural light, windows that open! The Bistro breakfast was to die for, service all around, 24/7 coffee/tea, lounge with fireplace, so nice, grounds great to walk through, or pick a spot to...

We LOVED this place! My boyfriend and I wanted to get out of the city on Columbus Day weekend and found this place on TripAdvisor. We stayed at the Firelight glamping tents the first night and at La Tourelle the second. Upon checking into La Tourelle (at 11am before our hike), we were offered a different room than originally reserved...

The first thing I noticed was the lovely Spanish tiles in the lobby (good) quickly changing to a carpet featuring fleur de lis running throughout the halls (bad). Where was I, in France or Spain? That, alone, makes the place somewhat quirky. But there's more. Each room has a French city name on the door, just to reinforce , Imagined,...

It was so wonderful to stay here. We only could stay one night -- visiting local college -- and it was just fabulous. The room was HUGE, the windows and view absolutely stunning. Every detail impeccable. The have wine tasting every afternoon, which was the prefect way to begin an evening. I visited with my 17 year old daughter who...

Thinking of revisiting La Tourelle actually makes my body immediately relax. I went here for 2 business trips, and it felt like a mini vacation for the brief free time that I had. The property itself is beautiful and well situated next to Buttermilk Falls. I brought my large husky (at no extra cost!) and he was treated like a...

This is a lovely venue with beautiful grounds and views. The room was quaint with cushy bedding and a cozy fireplace. The double head shower was wonderful. The Bistro is definitely A+ for its scrumptious breakfast choices. The spa services are staffed by knowledgeable people and made relaxing a welcome break from the weekend spent with our son and his...

Our stay at La Tourelle was relaxing and enjoyable. We booked a room with a balcony and the view was extraordinary. The room was very clean and comfortable, but a bit on the expensive side. We did, however, lenjoy the free wine-tasing each evening at 5:00 PM. About the only major complaint I have is the condition of the gazebos...

My boyfriend and I are in our late twenties. We recently stayed at La Tourelle for a night on our trip through The Finger Lakes. Our Queen room was beautifully detailed in design, spacious, and very clean. We enjoyed the surprise of complimentary local wine from 5–6pm. The beautiful grounds are on a hill overlooking the lake. I would highly...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you're looking for a getaway that offers deluxe accommodations; fabulous food; great wine; a destination spa and adventure experiences all nestled in the gorgeous New York Finger Lakes wine region, you've found it! La Tourelle's 54 deluxe rooms have dreamy pillow-top mattresses to ensure a restful night's sleep. You'll need that sleep if you plan on touring the wine trails; visiting the museums; taking a hike in any of five state parks, or participating in the numerous adventure excursions available in "gorges" Ithaca. After experiencing all that Finger Lakes wine country has to offer, you'll really appreciate getting pampered at August Moon Spa. We offer all the services you expect from a destination spa, plus we have two Tranquility Rooms where you can relax and enjoy cuisine from our "farm-to-table" menu at The Bistro. ... more   less
