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

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

We stayed at the Tresa Bay for 5 nights and had nothing to complain about whatsoever. 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

We stayed at Tresa Bay for 2 nights in mid June. We took the train from Zurich and (after changing trains in Lugano) got off right across the street from the hotel. 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
