I was happily surprise, the charm of this hotel, every single details delightful... like a little dream.... this hotel has every thing to make you feel good, the staffs, location by the lake, the charm of it ect... I dint like the food though, the menu was too basic and not tempting...but for sure I will go back next April for a longer stay.... loved it
Room was tidy and clean, food was great and service excellent, the hotel had it's own swimming pool watch out for the 1 euro charge per towel, it is in walking distance of Orta town. Our room had the most fantastic views of the lake and Island. the most stunning thing was to sit on the main balcony and have breakfast overlooking the town of Orta and the Lake, that alone was well worth every euro spent on this short 5 day holiday.
Interesting and quirky room, lovely breakfast. Top floor room called 'a room of ones own' has a great view of Lake Orta and the stone roofs of the city. The shower is certainly one of the oddest I have come across, in a good way.

Informal, particularly, ironically, on the square of Orta, the home of Aracoeli, with its own porch overlooking the square …More
We have returned several times to Villa Crespi. The architecture is not Italian, but the owner's own inspiration. The staff is warm and accommodating. Our rooms were lovely. The restaurant is very gourmet and very pricey. I would definitely return. It is an easy 40 -60 minute drive to Malpensa.
This is a fantistic hotel for a stay in Orta. The rooms feel very modern and each one has its own access to either the garden or a balcony. The beds were very comfortable and a mini fridge, kettle and tea are also provided. On top of this, you receive a flask for the duration of your visit to keep filling with water from the dining room, which is really useful, particularly in the summer when it gets extremly hot.
The breakfast provided offers a wide range of foods such as cakes, pastries, breads cereals, meats, cheeses and an excellent fruit salad. There are also juices and hot drinks available from the coffee machine. The only thing I would have added would be offering bread rolls too rather than only just slices of bread.
The hotel is also situated just up the road from the train station - approx 500m, so travelling by public transport is convenient. In relation to the main square of Orta, the hotel is a fair walk away, about 20mins, and slightly longer on the way back as it's much higher than the town. The walk takes in some really nice scenery and you can use a shortcut on the way down and back up if it's still light. The hotel also offer bike rental for €5 per day which I would thoroughly recommend as they are basically brand new bikes and are very good for cycling back up.
All in all, we would recommend this hotel to anyone, it was an enjoyable experience and the staff constantly went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We would definitely stay again.
