Travellers' Choice
The 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.

Another lovely stay at Giardinetto - a nice room overlooking the beautiful lake. Wonderful swimming in the lake - beds beside the lake always available. We ate in the restaurant, again overlooking the lake, wonderful service and good food. It was a great pleasure to be there again - everyone was so friendly and pleased to see us. We look forward to our next visit.

Second time at Giardinetto, everything was great. Good location away from the crowds of Orta San Giulio, direct access to the lake: steps, platform and a sundeck with hammocks and a pool. Breakfast at the terrace, overlooking the lake was lovely. Free car parking and boat stop in the dock of the hotel to Orta, Omegna, Isola San Giulio and other locations in the lake. Great restaurant and roof top terrace. We hope to come back soon!!!

It was our second time at Giardinetto Hotel, everything was great. Great location away from the crowds of Orta San Giulio, direct access to the lake: there are some steps to the water and a platform from where you can jump to the water. Sundeck with hammocks and a beautiful pool. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast in the terrace overlooking Lago d´Orta was lovely. Free car parking, boat stop in dock of the hotel to Orta, Omegna, Isola San GIulio and other locations in the lake. Great restaurant and roof top terrace for afternoon cocktails overlooking the sunset and the lake. Giardinetto is not the most luxurious hotel in the area but it has, in my opinion the best location in Lago d´Orta.

Stayed for a couple of nights recently. Had a splendid room with a beautiful lake view and balcony. Breakfast was plentiful and preordered which meant that it was quickly delivered to your table. We dined in the hotel restaurant one evening, staff were helpful and friendly, the food was tasty with a modern slant. There are sun loungers by the lake and swimming pool. Just a couple of observations... rather noisy aircon and the bar area was a bit small and dark. The bar seating is in the reception area which did seem a little overfilled with sofas. I would stay again, thank you all.

The hotel ristorante Giardinetto was the perfect base for our Italian holiday. Situated right on the lake front of lake orta, our double room was comfortable and the ensuite shower room clean and functional. The service we received at the hotel was excellent, even duing the restrictions in place due to COVID-19. We ate breakfast at the hotel each day of our trip, lunch there 3 or 4 times and had dinner there once. The food was excellent, both on the a la carte menu and the lunchtime snack menu. The terrace, providing a gorgeous view over the lake, made our meal all the better. The lounge terrace was a wonderful place to relax and soak up the sun, and cool off in the lake or the pool. The hotel provided us with some excellent local guides, including hiking routes and hired us kayaks. They looked after us really well.
