Reviewed 30 December 2016

This review is for the apartment associated to Villa Crespi and located along the road leading to the village. We tried to book a suite but the hotel was full and the management suggested a suite located outside the main building. I accepted and omg! The suite was actually an apartment in a nice palazzo just outside the gates of...

Two couples touring Italy stayed here for 3 nights and had a fantastic experience. Quite pricey but you get what you pay for. The service was fantastic and worthy of a place like this; no request too big or too small. The food in the Michelin 2 star restaurant on premises by owner/chef was off the hook great. The spa...

The hotel is a magnificent design, everything every shape every surface is in a three-dimensional coloured design, absolutely unique and beautifully preserved from the nineteenth century. The service matches the design: completely right and thorough-going, so thoughtful and warm and complete. And then there is the restaurant, two Michelin stars, should be three thought all four of us both nights...

Magnificent building Indian style in a beautiful garden on Orta lake. Very good service at the table with very good choice for wines. Food preparation excellent, unfortunately the taste was not up to the quality you could expect from a 2 Michelin stars restaurant. The gourmet menu has impressed me only for a very few dishes, the others courses, even...

We spent 2 nights in this charming and romantic hotel. The room was wide and similar to what we expected. The bathroom was good but the floor was cold.

We had a wonderful time at the Villa Crespi. Our suite was lovely and large. The view was fantastic. The garden was calm and relaxing. The food and service were just excellent. Loved being able to walk into the delightful little village and take a boat ride out to the 15th century basilica.

My first niggle was that the reservation was in my name, because the meal was my treat, but I was given a menu with no prices because, I assume, I was a "lady". The food was excellent, but it was all very safe. I didn't feel the restaurant was pushing any boundaries, trying anything new. The cooking was perfect and...

Stayed four nights here in early September and really enjoyed the experience.
