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.

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.

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.

Very nice, friendly hotel overall in a great location for those arriving by train. It is a 15-20 minute walk to Orta San Giulio but if you are reasonably able bodied it's not really a problem, we went there and back 4 times in two days and were fine! The room was modern and clean with a balcony and a nice view of the little terrace. The only problem we had was that they had forgotten to put towels in our room, which they rectified immediately when we asked them. The breakfast buffet was lovely, very varied for a smallish hotel, and there was a free snack and soft drink bar in a little lounge available from 3pm until 7am.

The hotel is nicely located, especially if you arrive by train. The staff was very nice. The problem with wi-fi is that the hotel doesn't offer anything; tthey tell you to use the town's free wi-fi. Omegna forces you off their network after about 20 minutes or so and you have to log in again. During busy hours you won't get on. And in my room the connection was too weak to get on. The only place I found where I could make a Skype call was outside on the west shore of the lake.
This small hotel is situated in the centre of Omegna, with rooms facing the Lake of Orta and the main town square. The …More
This is a peaceful retreat with the opportunity to socialize if you wish. Fantastic views over Lake Orta and easy access to the incredible village and island. The ferry even stops here! The staff are caring and do all they can to make your stay perfect. We feel fortunate to have found this lovely retreat.
