The food was excellent, great presentation. The only downside in the restaurant was flies, I killed a bottleneck and gave it to the waiter. That is the only adverse comment I have about the place. It lacked personal touch, the head chef is always away at functions and competitions. I think having great food, great menu and great wine, the... More

Villa Crespi was built as a private home in 1879. The style is Middle Eastern, having been inspired by the architecture in Baghdad. The hotel has a towering minaret, which can be seen from quite a distance. All of this is to explain that each room is different in decoration, size, layout, and view, so you should inquire if you...

My husband and I booked an executive suite (purported to have a "stunning lake view") on our last night in Italy. Lake Orta is beautiful and seems less overtly touristy than bigger lakes such as Como and Garda. Villa Crespi itself is a treasure for its architectural design and decor. It sits on a rise above the lake about a... More

The hotel was wonderful. Very unusual. A little tired and needs a bit spending o bring it up to 4/5 star. Restaurant was excellent. A little slow we waited an hour before the first course arrived. We notified the restaurant of various allergies in advance, but an attempt to chose the menu was met with, the only option was to... More

We got a stay at Villa Crespi via a Lys, a present we got. We normally would not stay at these luxurous hotels, simply because it is hard to afford. As quite 'ordinairy' people, we actually did feel very welcome which was somewhat a surprise. I think that deserves respect for the people at Villa Crespi. From the receptionists to... More

Villa Crespi is both special and delightful. It is truly an experiences. The staff are all so helpful and friendly. Before I arrived I organised a surprise in our room for my husband for our wedding anniversary. Villa Crespi were so helpful in organising this custom surprise and my husband loved it. Our room was one of their 'basic' rooms... More

We only had the opportunity to spend one night at Villa Crespi as we left Orta San Giulio and made our way east through the lakes. However, this brief experience, truly was one that I will remember for a long time. As you can tell by the price and the reputation, this is place of the utmost quality and grandeur.... More

What a cool place thats tastefully renovated back to its original style. Hire some bikes and do the lake by day. 40 km all round. Eat out at cafe Venus in the historical village or brace a 2 star Michellen chef at the hotel itself. No pool, but the lake is the cleanest alphine water I've seen in a long... More
