Booked this one in advance and had no prior knowledge about the place. Upon arrival the hotel was swamped with British tourists from coach parties which I could see presented some stressful moments for the Italian hotel staff!! With that in mind I can only give the staff or hotel the full five star rating for coping with the sometimes... More

We chose this hotel because of the view and booked with Citalia for 4 nights half board. We booked a Superior Double Balcony Lake View. We and another couple were on a driving holiday through France and Italy. We arrived and to take in the incredible view had a bottle of prosecco on the terrace overlooking the lake. Stunning view....

The Giardinetto is a welcoming and warm establishment located romantically on the edge of Lake Orta. The rooms are well maintained, the shower is great and the bed very comfortable. The corridors provide an interesting link to the various eras of the building. Breakfasts are held at both inside and outside tables giving a great view of the lake, in... More

The Giardinetto is an eclectric styled hotel that is warm and welcoming. It's positioning along the lake make breakfast as appetizing on the eyes as it is to eat.

The decor in the hallways and on the landings is interesting to say the least! Odd sticks stuck in pots or vases, a strange tall lampshade shape with a silk scarf wrapped over it, wooden ducks appearing here and there, ironing boards just left standing, a huge mural of a naked women in the stairwell are just a few of...
