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

Hi we stayed at the Tresa Bay Hotel during July on Business. I managed to use the hotels sun deck down next to the lake. Our room was very nice, fantastic views of the lake and mountains. I loved the glass window in the bathroom, everything was as it should be. We enjoyed the breakfast and evening meals in the... More

This hotel is real mixed bag. Starting with the positives we found the staff friendly and helpful on arrival. The location is handy to the train which takes you to lugano along a picturesque lakeside line. There is free wi-fi access in the foyer area which also reached our room. The Restaraunt served an excellent breakfast and the one dinner... More

We stayed for three nights in August. The views of the bay are fantastic and every room gets one so I understand. However the rooms are very dated and are not what we'd consider 4 star. There was also no aircon in our room, which any other time of year would probably have been fine, but the evenings were warm... More
