We loved to stay in this hotel since its reopening in summer 2012. We also had our marriage there in 2013 which was an outstanding experience. Everything was absolutely to our satisfaction and the entire team was just perfect. This also did not change in 2014 so we had no reason to put any doubt in the Hotel the Kitchen...

The "Orselina" is an absolute gem. Wonderful, friendly staff, exquisite interior design, and the most amazing view of the "Lago Maggiore" lake. It has everything you ask of a 5 star hotel, indoor and outdoor pool, spa etc., but its true asset is the location and scenery. We had booked for only one night as we were passing through on...

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in June 2016. It had all the facilities that we were looking for - very good restaurant, nice large pool (probably not so good for smaller kids), gym and a spa. All rooms are facing the Lago Maggiore and most will have an excellent view as the hotel is ca 400m above...

I stayed at the lovely Villa Orselina for two nights with my sister for my birthday. They picked us up from the train station and it was a relaxing weekend right from there!

We stayed for a couple of nights here as a family (1 child). The hotel setting is extremely beautiful with grand views of lake Maggiore and the mountains.

A quiet location with a great view not only from the rooms but from the bar and the restaurant as well. Food is excellent as well as the service.
