This hotel is fine for stays in the Caslano area as it is very centrally located. The superior rooms have beautiful lake views. The bed was fine and the room quiet (this was in January so it might be less quiet in peak season). Reasonably priced as well so a good place to stay.

We spend a night in Tresa Bay Hotel. A simple hotel but the view was perfect. The service was up to standard. The servers were really friendly. Had the surprise menu and was satisfied. Breakfast buffet was minimal, normally what one would eat for breakfast which makes sense. Great coffee though. Then we discovered this room that is set aside... More

We had a smart box and booked our stay there. We have been upgraded to a superior room. The room was spacious, clean and had a big window with beautifull view over the lake. There was a pool, but the water was not very warm. The restaurant was quite good, there were tables on the terrase looking over the lake,... More

Recently stayed 2 nights at the Tresa Bay Hotel and once again, received a friendly welcome and good service. The rooms was comfortable, with a lovely view of the lake and good air-con when I needed it. Great breakfast and delicious evening meals overlooking the lake. Menu prices are a bit high but if you choose wisely, you can eat... More

Last time I have stayed in the Tresa Bay was 5 years ago. Not much as changed, service remains very good. I have arrived at 1 am, and despite being out of the season period, my arrival was very well handled, fast and swift. within 10 mns I was in my room. By opposition to any other hotel, the Tresa...

For me it was a business trip bu the staff made me feel as if I was on holiday. The staff was helpful from being multilingual and taking care of our train tickets. Breakfast met everyone's needs and the food was quite tasty. Jstaff wa always friendly and helpful. My first time in Suizzeo was very charming.

Everything about the hotel is top-class: location, comfort, staff, service. But what terrible disappointment about the restaurant. We ordered the three-course “Menu surprise”. And what a surprise it was; dried meat, spare-ribs, ice cream. Oh, I forgot the “Mise-en-bouche”; three slices of salami. We couldn’t believe our eyes. Even the service personnel were amazed – or was it embarrassment. I... More

Stayed an entire week at the Tresa Bay hotel in Ponte Tresa (suburb of Lugano). It can easily be reached by light train from the center of Lugano. Forget about the car, the traffic caused by Italians coming in to Switzerland to work is horrendous in the morning and evening. Parking is sparce too. However, this small hotel right on... More
