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. Then there's the team who are... More

The roof top bar is excellent for a drink, with amazing views of the lake!! Restaurant, which is the terrace, sits over the lake, is very chic, and is covered by vines.... Which makes it extremely pretty. Unfortunately, the food did not match completely the surroundings..... But it deserves another visit for the roof top bar....

This was one of the loveliest holidays we have had. The hotel and it's lakeside location is, as another reviewer describes it, an oasis of bliss. The hotel is clean and well maintained, the staff are charming and the vine clad Gazebo restaurant is a dream which attracts people from a wide area. There is a twice daily boat service... More

Giardinetto is in a stunning location on Lake Orta. You could see scenic views for miles from our balcony. The beds are king size & comfortable & the rooms are spacious. The temperature of the lake was warm & perfect for swimming & there is great choice of water sports available. The buffet breakfast is plentiful with views over the... More

We booked two night there and I have to say the place is very beautiful and quite. The rooms are clean but nothing extraordinary. On the other hand the place is by the river of the lake in thr perfect place. The breakfast will be served by the lake with the best views ever!

An excellent, welcoming lake-side hotel providing spotless, comfortable rooms & excellent cuisine, which is located just north of the medieval village of Orta San Giulio, giving easy access by boat to Isola San Giulio.

If you are looking for the hustle and bustle and old world grandure then head for Maggiore or Como. Lake Orta still feels like it has yet to be discovered by the droves of tourists, so please keep it a secret. Having said that, you can still find plenty to do and where ever you are in this region you... More

We loved our superior room with balcony overlooking the lake, spa bath and comfortable beds. We wished we'd taken our travel kettle though as it was 5 euros per day to borrow one! I can't comment on the food in the dining room as ( unknown to us prior to arrival) we ate separately with our Diamond Rail group having... More

Ahh - an oasis of bliss in a busy world would be the way I would describe the Gardinetto. Very calm and tranquil area of Lake Orta, not much around in Pettenasco but that is part of it's charm I guess. Hotel situated right on the lake, mind blowing views and a fantastic setting. The staff, very obliging, the girls... More

Giardinetto... What can I say! Not only is your hotel and restaurant beautiful but the staff are amazing too! Me and my partner stayed here in Aug 15 to plan our wedding and what a lovely stay we had! We decided to have our dinner/evening reception for our wedding at Giardinetto ristorante in Jun 2016.

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
