6/10 Good

It was very clean the snacks available were nice car park was good and they got me soya milk and gluten free bread First room had broken tatty shower and air con that didn't work got moved to alternative room nice shower no toilet seat they said they couldn't get one it wasn't comfortable! Air con wasn't that effective Staff were very mixed some helpful some quite rude It was up a hill that was blind and didn't have any pavement The breakfast was a very strange selection no toaster available and the fruit juice was very watered down the water heater broke and it was hard to get water for tea and you were shouted at if you tried to get it from the coffee machine! Great potential needs good management

Don’t stay here during heat wave
We stayed here one night during heat wave. Unfortunately the air condition didn’t function at the same time as the elevator, and the lights went out 3 times during our stay. Apart from that the hotel is a bit worn down, but the service was friendly and breakfast ok.

Nice room, good location
Good location- nice panoramic walk to the old town. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast fine but service at breakfast a bit chaotic.

Great location if visiting Sacro Monte Di Orta
The hotel is located very close to Sacro Monte Di Orta. The breakfast was adequate, the WIFI did not work in the rooms. They were being installed while we were staying there. They had WIFI on the first floor but the first floor was not air conditioned. The staff was very friendly in fact they drove us the 1/2 mile to the train station the day we left.

Lovely quaint town
Actually stayed at the hotel’s alternative location in downtown Orta San Guilo. Much better location than the original hotel. Staff extremely helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was amazing. Ask to stay in their downtown location. Love Orta San Guilo

Wonderful staff, slightly out of town.
We stayed at the Santa Caterina for a couple of nights in May. The hotel is a little way from the lakeside in Orta, but for us it was a good location. We arrived from Turin by train and the hotel was a short walk downhill from the station. The hotel staff were all really friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. The hotel itself is pretty basic, and the WiFi only really worked in the ground floor, but it wasn't an issue for us. Breakfast was buffet style and there was a small area downstairs to make tea and coffee along with a selection of juices throughout the day. A small walk down the road from the hotel took you past the beautiful hotel Crespo and there is a delicious gelato bar here next door to a bar. We took the long walk lakeside down to the town and enjoyed the peace and scenery, but there is a quicker way too. All in all, we both really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again.
