We spent 5 nights at this hotel in late August. All aspects of this hotel were outstanding. As soon as you step into the lobby and look at the view out over the lake and mountains, your jaw drops. The owners and management have not overlooked anything to create a first class experience. The rooms are large and all have... More

Great hotel, very well appointed rooms and the staff are just great! Amazing view over Locarno and easy to get into town and back up to the hotel with the funicolare. We were also very happy to find a chilled bottle of prosecco and some crisps upon arrival which were free of charge. Also nice to see the hotel director... More

This place gets rave reviews - justifiably: the location (grandiose); the hospitality (friendly and welcoming); the rooms (extremely well and expensively equipped - our junior suite even had a kitchen remarkably fitted out with a full-sized dish washer and oven); recreational facilities (comprehensive) and the food (a light, creative kitchen). So why only practically perfect? Two things from our perspective.... More

Towards the end of May my husband and I were so fortunate to have been able to stay 4 nights at this amazing property. I never wanted to leave and I can't wait to go back. Everything from the reception, to the restaurant, the bar and the room could not have been more perfect. We had a small suite which... More

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!

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
