We stayed a week,first in a standard lakeside room but were transferred at no extra cost to a superior lakeside room. On half board basis the menu was different each night with choices and the food was interesting and varied.

Everything is clodse to excellency except the room offered. It was just above the restaurant terrace so it was smell from the kitchen and too much noise. The hotel should discount same rooms - it will be fair I thinh. Next time we will insist on other rooms for that price (not above the restaurant). The stuff was excellent, especially we are grateful to Matteo from the reception who was extremely helpful. Other problem (this is ours, not the hotel's) is the difficulty to visit Orta St Giulio and other good places without car - no public transportation and somewhat dead (ghost)train station...

Hotel is really at the lake, rooms are quiet from streettraffic, but walls are thin, so that you can hear TV from the neighbour. Excellent service, very friendly and helpful; big terrasses and if the weather is not so fine, big windows with lakeview in the dining rooms.

Great location on Lake Orta.The boat to explore the lake docked at the hotel. We took a superior room with a view of the lake after reading reviews and although a little dated we were not disappointed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food and wine in restaurant was fantastic although expensive but as we were only staying 2 nights we didn't mind.View from restaurant and breakfast terrace was magnificent. Only downside was breakfast. Tinned fruit-in Italia !!! and the croissants ran out very quickly. There was a great information booklet for the area in the room and we took a drive up to Monte Marrone as suggested and the views of seven Lakes including Orta amd Maggiore were breathtaking. On leaving we were given a small gift - lovely touch. Would definitely return.

Our double superior room with lake view was really very beautiful, quiet, and an unbeatable view. Although dogs are permitted, which displeased us (just a question of hygiene), it has to be acknowledged that they did not bothered us to much. Hotel decoration a little bit to kitch for our taste. Great restaurant with great wines and a creative cuisine with very professional and pleasant servicing on the top. Highly recommendable.

After a very friendly welcome we settled down to a wonderful week in a beautiful part of Italy. Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive.We had many laughs with the staff during our stay. Many thanks to Caterina the owner for all the lovely cocktails she made us. Orta Piazza on Lake Orta is a beautiful place as is the view of the lakes from the top of Mt Mottarone. Thank you all for a lovely week. We will return. Brian and Angela Kelly

Giardinetto is a very nice hotel. We had a superior room and that was excellent, no noise from the parallel busy street in front of the house, therefore it is recommended to reserve a room towards the lake if you want to have no noise. The terrasse for the dinner was very nice and directly above the water. Also breakfast buffet was good. Only disadvantage from our perspective: if one want to have a choice of other restaurants and a walk in the evening there are not too many options in Pettenasco and the walk along the main road is not nice at all. But this is not the hotel's responsibility, even if the hotel could influence to the community to build at least a small foot path.

We had a great stay. We took a superior room. The room looked similar to the photo of the orange room on the website. We had hoped for one that looked like the other room on the site. However, it was always clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Reasonable hotel, the standard rooms are just average and so we asked to change rooms to the superior room. These rooms were much nicer and more modern. Good lakeside location, on the main road so use of a car will take you 5 mins to Orta town.

Hôtel bruyant, pas de respect du sommeil des clients (la dernière nuit nous n'avons pas pu dormir, il y avait une NOCE organisée dans l'hôtel !) La vue est belle depuis les balcons, mais hélas des odeurs désagréables de ventilation des cuisines vous empêchent d'en profiter longtemps. Le petit déjeuner est correcte, mais il est lamentable que dans le pays du café on vous serve celui-ci en poudre (de même que le lait) dans un distributeur.

We only spent one night at this hotel but would definately stay here again. The view from the room & balcony was excellent. The room its self was perfectly adequate, however there was no mini bar. We ate at the restuarant the food was also excellent! We sat on the terrace outside overlooking the lake it was beautiful. Most staff spoke English & they were alll very friendly & helpful. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Probably the worst hotel experience in a long time. Run-down facilities and rooms, the usual attempt to put you into the worst available room at arrival...an extra charge of 2€ per day for what used to be a towel 20 yrs ago (they call it pool towel now, but rather resembled an American quilt). The region is beautiful that hotel rather a no, no.
