Reviewed 3 August 2016 via mobile

Nice place overlooking the lake. Booked two rooms for 6 people. Not even arrived that front desk was asking extra money (over the 1600 CHF a night already paid) for the extra bed !! Apparently Booking.com's fault. Kind of remark you get when staying in a two star hotel

We came for a short stay with my brother in Villa Orselina and we had an absolutely wonderful experience! Villa Orselina completely blew us away!

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!
