set in the forest high above Mendrisio with stunning views across Lake Lugano. Quite a challenging drive, especially at night just to reach the hotel. Friendly informative, multi-lingual staff at reception. Superior room, very spacious with balcony, fridge but no AC. Lack of pillows and bedside table with lamp was a little strange. Great walk-in power shower, lots of towels... More

This hotel has so stunning view of Lugano Lake. The building itself and hotel rooms are a bit outdated, however the main restaurant is carefully redecorated. Our superior room facing to the garden looked very eighties: tired furniture, outmoded curtains and long-lived bath towels. The breakfast buffet is not outstanding, but there are some gluten free products available! We stayed... More

Location, location, location! Situated at the end of a winding narrow road. Just hope you dont meet the Post bus en route... Friendly staff & make sure you have breakfast outside if possible...just ask if its not set up as the staff will accomodate you...we got lots of envious glances from those who had not thought of asking.... The view... More

Upon reaching the hotel you'll say "What is a gorgeous hotel doing in a place like this"? It is a large hotel on the tippy top of a mountain. Click on the hotel site to insure you take the right road! It is not reached from the town indicated in the address. Getting there. There is a bus that can... More

The restaurant is a great place to rest and recuperate from a long walking to reach the Hotel Restaurant. They changed all the decor and the syle of the Restaurant was modernised. We could not wish for anything better. Moreover it was in a great location with an amazing view. We also enjoyed the delicious dinner. Before dinner we used... More

I loved this hotel and hope to be back very soon. I don't have a car so am relying on co-workers for lifts, so will try to persuade them to stay here too. Room was spotless, fantastic view. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, everything went very smoothly . I loved the breakfast and especially the view from the restaurant. Dinner... More

We spent the weekend at Serpiano. The room was fine, pool and spa area good, but the hotel restaurant was poor. I felt the quality of the food at dinner was substandard and far overpriced. We would go back again, but we would only eat our main meals outside the hotel. Having said that, breakfast was as expected.

I came back to the hotel with my mum this time. We really enjoyed the view and this time our room was a bit "closer" to the lake. We enjoyed breakfast and the improvement with the coffee maschin is great!
