There is much to celebrate here, but this hotel was unfortunately a disappointment for us. I endorse a number of positive things said by previous reviewers: very good food, great front-desk and restaurant service, isolated quiet location and million-dollar views. However, the other side of the story is that the hotel is very tired-looking, is in need of an update... More

We arrived at the hotel by post bus which winds, hooting noisily at every bend, up the narrow road from Mendrisio. It is a huge hotel with different levels, our large and comfortable room and balcony overlooking gardens and mountains. The highlight is the restaurant looking down over Lake Lugano; the view is just stunning. The weather was rather cool... More

We booked this hotel while organising a shopping trip to Mendrisio. We were surprised by the location: mountain top with stunning views on the Morcote area and lake Lugano. Not the easyiest road to get there but it is certainly worth the effort! We had dinner at the restaurant overlooking the valley and lake Lugano with local dishes from the... More

Until 1,5 years ago and before moving to the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores I used to live in the nearby village of Tremona which is just 10 minutes away by car from Serpiano. In past years I often came up here to Serpiano to unwind and relax, for walks and to enjoy food and drinks on the splendid, panoramic... More

Having run a 10 day event for around 30 people at Hotel Serpiano I have nothing but the highest praise for the location, the facilities and above all the staff. Each and every employee made the group feel at home from the outset, looked after them admirably - the kitchen brigade even came up with helpful recipes for sore throats... More

If you seek solitude and beautiful view...this is the Location. It is not the easiest way to get to. For 3 km you drive a single car road, but when you reach the destination a breathtaking view awaits you. The reception gave us a warm welcome. We had a spacious room facing the garden and part of the lake. The... More

This place sits at the top of the world and offer you million dollar views at affordable prices - the food in the restaurant is possibly the best I have had in years and the terrace on a beautiful clear day competes with Europe's best hotels

The staff and management is very friendly and helpfull. I can... More

this hotel is very difficult to get to, esp at night. so be prepared to persevere to the very end. in the morning get up early for a cup of coffee at the restaurant overlooking the lake. it's breath taking and u felt all the troubles melting away. perfectly peaceful and beautiful.

The last 4Km is rather hair raising at times around the narrow bends with big drops etc. On arrival you are met with a building painted white and red, a colour scheme throughout. We had a comfy room and it was comfortable overlooking the main entrance, caused no trouble at all. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, service good. But it... More
