We sat for our anniversary for dinner at this restaurant, we got a table with view to the Lake, even if it was dark, service was very good, and the food as well, nothing to complain....but a lot to commend, if you stay in the hotel it will complement your stay. As for the rooms, we got a nice room...

We visited for my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary. They used to visit with their children many years ago. The owner was still there and remembered my in-laws which was lovely. The hotel has wonderful views and access to the lake. Kayaking, paddle boards and pedalos for hire. Delicious a la carte food. Very accommodating regards childrens' meals. And a tasty...

My wife and I stayed at this delightful hotel in June 2016. We have never before enjoyed such a superb location. Of course we were blessed with wonderful weather, highlighting this beautiful Lake. Our room overlooked the lake and was spacious and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we will certainly return sometime in the future. Only one...

We were disappointed with this hotel and would class it as more 2 star than 3 star. The positives are a great location right on the edge of Lake Orta (but be warned it is a car drive to Orta San Guilio) and the room we had had been recently renovated. However there was a complete lack of service. None...

Perfect location wity stunning views across the lake. The weather was superb and even if there is not a lot to do locally it is a very relaxing place to stay. Most of the staff are very friendly and always helpful with a smile especially Alexandra and Mario. Would recommend it for a week or long weekend.

My title says it all. Beautiful location right on the lakeside although nothing else besides the hotel. Orta is a 5/10 minute drive away. We had a very nice lake view room with balcony and I would love to have had a fishing rod with me as I could see the fish in the clear water below. That's the good...

Attension, especially the Street-, but also parts of the sea-side: VERY, VERY NOISY!!!

So we are regulars - have spent at least a week here every year for the last 20 years. But there is very good reason for that: the location must be one of the prettiest you could find with most rooms, breakfast and dinner all overlooking one of Italy's smallest and most delightful lakes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The three star superior Hotel Giardinetto has been within the Primatesta family since Luciano Primatesta founded it as an Inn in 1930. Its continuous evolution has made it a point of reference for the hospitality industry on Lake Orta, as well as further afield. The hotel lies directly on the beautiful shores of the romantic lake in an oasis of nature, it's the ideal destination for relaxation and enjoying the surroundings. It has all the standards of a modern hotel, but with its own charm, a breathtakingly view and the thoroughly romantic environment of the lake. The hotel has very comfortable rooms, an outdoor pool (for those who don't wish to swim in the lake) along with a little private beach. The restaurant with its unique terraces directly on the water, has become famous for its regional and creative cuisine as well as for its wine cellar with over 450 Italian, French and International labels. ... more   less
