We stayed in in 2019 & loved it, so had to return in September 2023. This was part of a road trip & was our favourite hotel of all we stayed in. We booked direct for 3 nights but extended our stay for 2 extra nights as we enjoyed it so much. The owner Marco runs a superb hotel & is always charming & on hand & it was lovely to see him again. Everything about the hotel was immaculate, the rooms, pool & gardens. The restaurant Verum is a must, food & service are exceptional. It was good to see Andrea again in the restaurant. We feel lucky to have found this place & will return. Thanks Marco & Team

We stayed 4 nights at the Hotel Cortese. It is ideally situated to explore the area, in particular the lake Orta which we found the most charming, less crowded of the various lakes in Northern Italy. Many worthwhile sites within the reach of a relatively short drive. The hotel is absolutely a great place to stay. Nice, large rooms, very clean, very comfortable. The restaurant offers a nice variety of excellent dishes. Food was just great! We also followed the staff's recommendations for local wines and that was a great experience. Breakfast buffet has everything you could think of. Facilities include a lounge, swimming pool, a fitness room, a nice outside area to relax and enjoy. The hotel does not have a charging station for EVs, but there's plenty of options in the surroundings, so this wasn't an issue at all. And a special word about the staff: extremely friendly, providing an excellent service with style and a real care for the guests' well-being. A big thank you to all the team! All in all, we were very pleased with our stay, and we would certainly return to the lovely Hotel Cortese during a next trip to the region. A highly recommendable place!

Reservation has been made through booking.com for 3 nights. Contacted by the hotel shortly before our visit via booking.com to update credit card details already provided with original reservation which has been successfully completed (once again) and confirmed (via booking.com) but received the following day through booking.com cancellation of reservation from the hotel because “no deposit was paid”. Calling the hotel to clarify they claimed that they have tried to charge the credit card and apparently, it has not worked, however checking with the credit card company they confirmed that the credit card works perfectly fine AND no attempt from Italy has been made the last 72 hours to charge the credit card which suggests either gross incompetence by the hotel or they are trying to sell the room at a considerably higher rate (our room subsequently available via booking.com at +30% vs. our reservation) for the same date / long weekend. Either way their business conduct is appalling and unacceptable and hanging up the phone during the call tells everything one needs to know about this place. Beware of this hotel.

This hotel is a hidden gem ideally located for exploring the area. Armeno is a lovely rural town The hotel staff are welcoming friendly and kind nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are enjoyable with great choices and dinners were a pleasure with excellent food nearly Michelin star with tiramisu that is truly delicious. Thank you to all the staff with a special mention to Philipo and his tips on Rose wine

We enjoyed a fantastic stay at this beautiful and well located hotel. The friendliness and support of the staff is exemplary and seemingly effortless what made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing. The restaurant serves high quality foods and wines and the atmosphere is impeccable. This is a hotel where 'service' is not a buzz-word but a well trained philosophy.

This past week my associate and I had the pleasure of staying in this hotel for two nights. The first thing we noticed was how wonderful the front desk people were upon our arrival. The rooms were small, but exceptionally clean and modern. The breakfast was wonderful and the wait staff was one of the best I've ever seen. My only issue I had was leaving. It was a great experience and I will definitely use their hotel next time we are doing business in the Milan area. The airport was an easy 45 minute drive.

The hotel is as described, wonderful location and facilities. Our room was large, the bed was comfortable and full queen size. Bathroom modern and a large room. We ate at the restaurant which was good food. We had half board and it gave us most of the a la carte menu to choose from. Breakfast was more than adequate with lots of choice.

We love everything about this hotel and we try to visit at least once a year. The hotel is situated in a beautiful, peaceful location which is perfect for visiting all the destinations around Lakes Maggiore and Orta. It is beautifully maintained and clean. The staff are courteous and helpful and the whole team are focused on making your stay as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. The food is of a good standard and is prepared and served with love and attention to detail. The pool is perfect for a relaxing day spent at the hotel and there are also beautiful gardens to enjoy. We would certainly recommend a stay in the Hotel Cortese - you won't be disappointed and you will probably become regulars like us! We feel completely at home here - it's delightful.

We have been in hotel Cortese for the third time. We love this cosy hotel with an excellent, very attentive and caring staff, an excellent restaurant with service at its best. The location on the verge of the mountains is calm and inspiring. Nevertheless, lake Orta or Lago Maggiore are not far away. We will surely come back!!

Recently refurbished hotel. V comfortable bed, quiet room, great nights sleep. Bathroom very modern. Staff very helpful. We had half board, dinner one night. Selection was very limited. We should possibly have asked if there another menu. There doesn’t appear to be much in Armeno village, except a beautiful romanesque church and a bar in the centre. Behind the hotel, there is a lovely walk through the woods (percorso di vita), ask at reception for a map. Enjoy!
