Of course, it's a five star property, so it would be fair to say, "it should be impeccable," but that, sadly, is not always the case. A lot of things can compromise a stay in even the most posh hotel but usually it's the people that make or break the experience. At Villa Orselina, the people made our experience... Starting...

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for two nights with our 3 months old baby. The staff were really welcoming and incredibly obliging, especially at the restaurant. The room was great, the view fantastic and there was nothing to complain about. We'll definitely come back!

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa Orselina. The room was nice and bright although as it was the least expensive room it was quite small and had no balcony. It was a nice to find a bottle of cold prosecco and snacks in the room. The bar and pool both have beautiful views. It is fun to take the... More

A wonderful stay at an almost perfect "small" hotel at the heights of Locarno (CH) with a fantastic view on the Lago Maggiore and the Alps, excellent restaurant with breathtaking views, well managed into every detail, customer-oriented with the personal touch. Only critics to the small bathroom (no separate WC, only shower ) and the deficient roomkeeping. A place to... More

Indeed, this hotel may be a bit on the expensive side but then, you get a lot in return. The premises are very beautiful and well kept, great views over the lake, nice pool area, excellent food,.... Service is of a high standard, especially in the restaurant and bar. The only negative is that not all rooms seems to have... More

I stumbled on the Villa Orselina by chance when looking for somewhere to stay for the Moon and Stars festival in Locarno. That annual event really chews up hotel space in the area so the Villa was one of the few options left a few months out if we wanted to be walking distance to the concert in the Piazza... More

My wife and I stayed at Villa Orselina in early June for one night. We stayed here as part of a package (so I’m not certain of the rate), but online prices looked like our Superiore Double Room was probably slightly more than 400 Swiss Francs ($431 or 325 Euros). The positives for this place begin with the fantastic service... More

Spent two nights here: upgraded to a junior suite, I think, and the facilities in the room and the hotel were first class (although I never did work out the air-conditioning). Loved the funky lights in the shower! The food was excellent - we had the "special menu of the day" for supper and it was delicious, beautifully presented. Sitting... More

Everything is fantastic about this hotel. The rooms, decor, expansive views and more importantly the people. Each staff member is so warm and welcoming. They ensure that it is a real pleasure to stay with them. Not only did they upgrade us to a Suite but to make up for the non-functioning funicular (very close-by to the hotel) the hotel... More
