Beautiful building and attentive service. We were advised that since the new season started a month ago every lunch and evening sitting has been full. The restaurant caters for 16 places. We chose the extended tasting menu and the food was perfectly prepared. The amuse bouche and bread were very nice. The first three dishes were fish and most enjoyable...

Villa Crespi really is a stunning location. The photos seen online do not do this venue enough justice. Everything from the welcome drinks to the massage sessions will leave a lasting smile on your face!

What an incredible hotel this is. The images I have myself put up, and those on the site just don't do it enough justice. It is a beautiful place with stunning walks and surrounding areas with the backdrop of the lake. The staff are warm, welcoming and very helpful. The attention paid to detail is superior, with lovely Clarins cosmetics,...

Villa Crespi is Located on a hillside a short walk away from the shores of Lake Orta, close to the medieval village of Orta San Giulio and Sacro Mote di Orta, Unesco World heritage.

This review is for the apartment associated to Villa Crespi and located along the road leading to the village. We tried to book a suite but the hotel was full and the management suggested a suite located outside the main building. I accepted and omg! The suite was actually an apartment in a nice palazzo just outside the gates of...

Two couples touring Italy stayed here for 3 nights and had a fantastic experience. Quite pricey but you get what you pay for. The service was fantastic and worthy of a place like this; no request too big or too small. The food in the Michelin 2 star restaurant on premises by owner/chef was off the hook great. The spa...

The hotel is a magnificent design, everything every shape every surface is in a three-dimensional coloured design, absolutely unique and beautifully preserved from the nineteenth century. The service matches the design: completely right and thorough-going, so thoughtful and warm and complete.

Magnificent building Indian style in a beautiful garden on Orta lake. Very good service at the table with very good choice for wines. Food preparation excellent, unfortunately the taste was not up to the quality you could expect from a 2 Michelin stars restaurant. The gourmet menu has impressed me only for a very few dishes, the others courses, even...
