We stayed for two nights at this hotel. It was recommended by a foodie friend. We'd just spent three nights in Locarno Switzerland and while we enjoyed our time there we had exceptionally bad food. When we arrived at the Giardinetto we were disappointed. The room was very, very, basic, but it did have an extremely nice view of lake... More

This Hotel is excellently placed directly onto Lake Orta. Our room seemed to hang over the water and we could see dozens of large fish swimming below. It was truly stunning. There are rooms overlooking the road but as in all cases, it pays to spend a bit more for the view. The rooms and common areas were immaculately clean.... More

We returned for a longer stay, and again asked for a room that has a view of the lake so that each morning you awake to that beautiful view. Again the staff were wonderful - helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, the food was fantastic, everything was clean and organised. Parts of the main hotel look dated, but don't let that put you... More

Lake Orta is less commercialised than either Como or Maggiore and is certainly a delightful retreat from the crowds. My wife and I arrived at Giardinetto at 12.35 pm after 4 hours of driving and were immediately provided with our standard lake view room - if we were any closer to the water we would rust! Parking is in an... More

Despite the many positive reviews about this hotel, I need to be somewhat more critical in my judgement about this hotel. Let me start with the positive elements : - the staff is very friendly and helpful - the location next to the lake is second to none offering a stunning view both from the terraces and from the room...

We booked through a company for half board accommodation as part of a twin lake holiday and stayed at the Giardinetto for our second week. The hotel benefits greatly from the picturesque setting and so we paid extra for a superior room with a lakeside view. The room was of a reasonable size with a lovely ensuite and large balcony...

We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. Rooms have great AC and UK TV channels. Staff are very attentive, and actually reduced the cost of our stay by finding a larger room to fit all 4 children, rather than sharing 2 rooms between them. We rented the boat for a trip in the lake. Swimming in the... More

We had a 7 night stay as part of a package. Initial opinion of the hotel was a good 3 star hotel in a superb position. The room we had was at the end of the building and was wedge shaped with a tiny balcony - so a little disappointing. However the bed was huge and very comfortable. We had... More

We had a 7 night stay booked with a tour company in a superior room with a lake view which was lovely in terms of facilities and cleanliness. However whilst the hotel in general was good, I have had to rate it as poor because despite the brochure description of luxurious facilities, dining on the terrace on the waterfront etc.... More

We found this family run hotel a few years ago, when we visited for three years running and truly loved it, but we have not been back for a while. Having a family wedding in Lake Como, we decided to finish by revisiting the hotel, together with our cousins. Although the weather was not great, we made the most of... More
