This was our third visit to Tresa Bay. Love it there. Nice room with beautiful view on the Bay. I like to swim in the bay via the swimming pool. Friendly staff and very helpful. Diner on the terrace is very romantic.

Lovely location of hotel right on lakeside, clean room and large enough for 2 extra beds for children. Reasonably priced for Lugano, and grea to walk across into Italy in 5 mins. Breakfast buffet quite substantial, and wi-fi available in rooms. Downsides for me were the traffic jams from Lugano to Ponte Tresa each evening - literally crawling traffic. Reception... More

Service was excellent, staff are very friendly and service- minded, the hotel was very clean and everything worked. The room was fairly large and with a nice lake view. The restaurant is very nice and certainly with a lake view. The food served in... More

The walk around the lake, into Italy, is very scenic. Our standard room had a great view (which is true for all the rooms) and the bedding was... More

I spent a week at Tresa Bay hotel back in April and it was very good. The hotel is conveniently located next to the Lugano lake and the Italian border. It’s quite far from Lugano but the train station is next to the hotel, and it takes only 15 mn by car. The food was OK, the indoor swimming pool... More

We love this hotel- have stayed twice before and are going back this summer. It’s a short train ride from the centre of Lugano and on the Italian border, so you can walk into Italy in a couple of minutes! The train ride is no problem: the station is opposite the hotel and trains run very regularly. The station in... More
