This property is situated above the city of Locarno with beautiful views of the city and of Lake Maggiore. It is also near the funicular that travels down to Locarno and back. Room was spacious enough and comfortable with balcony overlooking the hotel garden, the lake, and the city below. Nice touches, such as fruit and muffins on arrival, and...

We booked for one week in a junior suite to relax following a hectic spring and summer. The hotel arranged for a taxi to collect us from the station and also to return us there at the end of our stay. We were shown to our suite and given a comprehensive demonstration of how all the features worked, mini-kitchen, multicoloured...

Catastrophic and unprofessional arrival service. Beautiful panorama suite, with only partially panoramic lake view. Second service at night was poor. Wonderful restaurant settings in the evening, amazing lake views, good service, the food quality was a deception. Right and left of the hotel, private residences with views into the hotel aera, lower levels of the hotel are completely desolated ......

Villa Orselina is a dream come true. The majestic views combined with the superb service and fantastic amenities makes this the perfect place to stay in Switzerland. I already long to go back. I was thoroughly impressed by the spa--I recommend the bath + massage combination. Make sure to check out the extensive wine cellar next to the spa entrance.

Perfect romantic getaway spot, but recommendable for families as well. Pros: Wonderful views over Lago Maggiore and the surrounding mountains Spacious, modernly and fancily equipped rooms Twizy electric car rental to drive around Locarno Top notch service Cons: Cuisine at the main restaurant was not up to the hotel's standard. Overdone.

My husband and I honeymooned here in late September, and we had the most amazing experience at Villa Orselina.
