The lakeside setting with beautiful views over Lake Orta overrides and helps to overcome this hotel's shortcomings. As other reviewers have already said you MUST get a room with a lake view. Lake Orta is tranquil and beautiful with constantly changing moods and colours. You could sit and look at it's beauty all day! The staff are lovely! Obviously a... More

We booked this hotel after looking into the various options with private parking, elevator, lake view and air-conditioning and after having read different positive reviews. The hotel is actually located on the lakeside (Lago Orta) so when you book a lakeside room you’re actually on the lake. Important to know is that communication (for reservations) can be done in fluent... More

My wife and I stayed for a few nights at this delightful hotel in late June. Although the weather was unseasonably wet, we really enjoyed ourselves. A lady who had been a regular visitor for many years, could not remember a time when it rained so much. Nevertheless the wonderful location on this beautiful lake, the very friendly and attentive...

We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights in June. The room and balcony were huge and the view was lovely of the lake. This is a very quiet hotel and relaxing, don't expect disco's and bingo, you won't find it here but what you will find is very friendly and obliging staff from the Reception to the Dining rooms...

We love this hotel. The location is wonderful and the restaurant good. Unfortunately because we booked very last minute we had a room on the third floor with not such a good balcony, but still a lake view . They welcomed our well behaved dog and we all swam in the lake. Orta is a lovely town some 6 Kms... More

We have been to this hotel many times and will doubtless return many more times. The lakeside location is stunning and the rooms overlooking the lake are beautiful but, best of all, is the attention provided by the Primatesta family. Caterina and her husband Oreste are wonderful hosts. Now Ezio, who we knew as a child (!), is taking over... More

This hotel is a Three star old beauty originating from 1926 according to the charming hostess/owner. The location is perfect, a few km from Orta San Giulio, in Pettenasco. The hotel has a small garden, pool and access to the sea with some sunbeds. Great views for the rooms with seaview. Some balconies very nice. Some, sadly, not as great... More

My wife and I spent just over a week here. We overlooked the Lake, we loved the food and the facilities were great. Lovely owners and staff.with the lake boats calling at the hotel you can visit locally BUT if you want to go further afield you do need a car.

This hotel is amazing! I suppose the beautiful location really helped but everything else was fabulous too. The rooms, meals, staff, everything, I couldn't fault it at all! I wish I could go back right now & live there. I'm a vegetarian & this wasn't an issue at all, you might think it shouldn't be but it nearly always is... More
