Villa Crespi is madly unusual. A Moorish castle sitting above a small Italian lake and boasting a 2 star Michelin restaurant. It is very ornate and carefully maintained. The staff are excellent and very attentive. The food is fantastic - some of it as good as I've ever had - a pigeon dish and a spaghetti with clams in particular.... More

The building is a replica of a mansion in Bagdad, really interesting detailed interiors, grand rooms furnished with antique furniture. Although we were staying at the hotel we weren't automatically booked into the restaurant and initially were told it was full, but they managed to fit is for an early dinner. I am glad they did, the meal as one... More

We discovered Villa Crespi through the Relais & Châteaux guide and ceased the opportunity to visit and enjoy Lake Orta. As Relais & Châteaux Club 5C members, upon arrival at Villa Crespi we were offered a welcome drink in the garden framed by the waters of Lake Orta. However, the lake is really not visible as a result of the... More

As part of our trip round Europe we enjoyed 3 nights at Villa Crespi. It is a completely unique hotel in so many ways, all of which are good. Firstly the building is completely over the top, with all it's heavy moorish decoration and its minaret. Inside the theme continues. Our room, 234 on the third floor, had an amazing... More

What a charming villa by the beautiful lake of Orta. We intended to have a quick stopover away from the bustle of Milan prior to our flight. As we were checking out early to catch a flight, we had booked the cheapest room on offer. We were upgraded on arrival to a suite, as majestic as one can dream of.... More

Iconic hotel in Lake Orta, fabulous service, food, and wine. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. We stayed for our wedding anniversary and it was perfect. Highly recommend it for a special occasion and / or a lovely indulgence in near Lake Orta. Definitely book to experience dinner in the restaurant - right up there for fine dining. The staff... More

Oriental architecture in Italy's Piedmont region. Only 14 rooms, vast and with antique furniture, silk wallpaper. Beautiful garden with sunbeds. Terrace with suites under a giant canopy top. Unfortunately there is no pool. Exclusive cuisine. Try the 10 course surprise dinner with accompanying wines.

My husband and I had just had our wedding celebration at Villa Crespi. The Villa with it's romantic oriental look is a stunning backdrop for the perfect wedding. The enormous permanent tent in the garden makes it ideal for a garden wedding even if it's bad weather (we had rain at one point of the evening which didn't bother us... More

We stayed two nights in the Executive Suite 213 at Villa Crespi. The room is as presented on the hotel's website (furniture in classic/antique style) and equipped with multiple airconditioning units as well as a spacious shower. Be aware that the "lake view" is rather limited in summer, as the suite is on the first floor and the lush vegetation... More

We had a great stay at Villa Crespi. When we arrived we were delighted to find out we'd been upgraded to the best room in the hotel. The views were amazing out of all of the windows. The lake is picturesque and the quaint town is only a short walk down the hill. All staff were a credit to the... More
