This is a wonderful getaway for a very expensive day and night in a beautiful location. It has a 2 Michelin-starred restaurant, which is the main reason for being there, but more on that later. The price is top dollar, but worth it for the building and location. We went early in the week in spring, and there were not... More

Cannot imagine a better place to explore & enjoy the Itslian lakes. Beautiful gardens to relax, superb food and very comfortable rooms to soak in the culture. Rooms just need more areas to put one's things.

My wife and I enjoyed celebrating our anniversary with a stay at Villa Crespi. From the moment we entered the hotel, we were amazed by how friendly and attentive the service was. Despite parts of the building dating back to the late 19th century, the rooms are large and very well-appointed. The breakfast buffet is top-notch quality and the public... More

Exceptional hotel with exceptional service. Service is way better than usual 5 stars!!! Staff is friendly, very attentive (might be too much for non Italians). Rooms are comfortable, bathrooms are nice. Breakfast is incredible. This isn't a 5 star because it hasn't all the facilities but the location,place and service makes it so much more.

Incredible food and presentation. We dropped in unexpectedly and were terribly under-dressed for this really special establishment. We were still welcomed in for lunch and we were very glad to have found this gem. The service was some of the best I've ever encountered.
