this hotel was in a wonderful setting. We were in a standard room with a lake view and it was a very comfortable room with all we needed in it. The view from our balcony was superb. The hotel staff were very good and the breakfasts were excellent. The evening meal was not always brilliant but we never went to... More

We are a couple that travelled 'independently' but made our travel arrangements through Citalia. We stayed for seven nights and had specified a superior lake view room with balcony. This is what happened, although the first room we were shown was definately not the best in that category.The room we were moved to fully justified the description - spacious, with... More

The truly outsatanding feature of this hotel is the location, right on the shores of pretty little Lake Orta. We hadn't booked so were offered a room on the roadside rather than a room with a view. Although there was quite a bit of traffic noise during business hours it was quiet overnight. We had drinks on the superb terrace... More

We went on a group tour here for a week and were disappointed. The setting is perfect, right beside the lake and a quiet location. We paid extra for a superior lake view but the view was rather restricted as we were in the angle of the building but we could see the island which was very scenic. However, the... More

We stayed in a family room (Room 101), which was to accommodate 3 adults. The room was plenty big enough. However, the bathroom was compact and there was zero drawer space for clothes. The wardrobe was a good size, but limited hangers to use. The room had good air con, a TV, fridge and safe and such comfy beds/pillows. What... More

We stayed in a family room which was very nice although the bathroom had clearly been missed of the list when the room was refurbished. We had a nice balcony with stunning views across the lake. The downside was that we were just above the outside restaurant area which wasn't a problem until the hotel has its 'gala night'. The... More

We were looking forward to staying here as we very much wanted to see Lake Orta and the reviews of this restaurant/hotel were very good. Unfortunately we were disappointed. We had booked a room with a lake view and were shown to a bizarre attic room which appeared to have been hastily converted from staff quarters complete with attached kitchenette.... More

Not very relaxing. The restaurant was flavorless and boring. This was our most expensive meal it Italy and the worst. The rooms were extremely noisy and not relaxing. We did not see one person there under the age of 50. The people working there were kind but I would go somewhere else.

Dear Kogonya We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at the Giardinetto but also perplexed with your comments which far from being criticism we can learn from and therefore improve, do little more than tell us you just did not like the place or our guests!
