This hotel is just sooooo relaxed and quiet with some of the most beautiful views in Switzerland. Ascona itself is stunning with great options for food, wine & opportunities to spend time in nature. Without its location however it would not be a 4* class hotel. It’s in need of

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the views, however we do not agree with your remarks. You stayed in Junior Suite number 12, a really wonderful room with high quality renovated infrastructure. We never made any communication that we are lakeside, we are a little bit on the hill, this gives also this stunning views, that is why it takes 5min. walking to reach our private beach (there ist no restaurant service, this is correct). I do not agree with you about the staff's uniform, for breakfast service we have since this year new high quality polo shirts (CHF 45.- each), and a lot of guest gave big compliments for it. I'd like to precise that you payed with 2 discount vouchers, so you reserved the rack rate (you are free to reserve the best price rate which is usually really much better). You forgot your vouchers, and we were so friendly to accept that you could send them a few days later. We are sad about your words, also discussing with my head of departments we unfortunately do not understand what we could have done better. We would be delighted to welcome you again, to show you that we really try to do our best for our guests and our goal is that guests have a wonderful holiday experience. Looking forward to see you again, best regards. Marcel Krähenmann, Hotel-Manager.

Dear Guest, thank you for your Feedback. Unfortunately we are very suprised. Therefore we would like to point what happend: 1. You booked a Basic Double Room in the Hotel with a special low rate, in addition we gave you a free upgrade to an Economy Double Room with lake view and Airconditioning. 2. You booked a table in our Panoramic Restaurant for 6.30pm., you came to the restaurant at 8.35, we gave you a nice table, explained you the daily reccomendation menu in englisch, and gave you the à la carte menu (witch is in Italian and German) but we always offer to assist with a personal translation, and at 8.45pm the Restaurant Manager asked you if you have found something or you have some question. We do agree that we kindly reminded you that the last order is taken at 8.45pm, we apologise if you felt not beeing welcome. We are really sorry for this.. 3. You ordered: as starter the big prowns with avocado and peach salad, the artisanal made tagliatelle, as main course a lemon risotto with a special ticino cheese robiolino, and a beef entrecôte merlot-risotto. You appreciated a lot and did't mentioned at any time something negative. You left the restaurant at 10.13pm. 4. The food is not expensive compaired to the restaurants in the region. We serve high quality and local products. You can't compaire it with an other country (Italy). At your check-out you were kindly asked you if everything was fine an you unfortunately didnt'mentioned anything. Finally, we are very sad about your feedback, and we can't understand what happend. We are very thankful for feedbacks that help us to improve ourself and the restaurant. Thank you. Best regards Marcel Krähenmann, Hotel-Manager Raffaele Bianchi, Restaurant-Manager Antonio Nogueira, Head Chef

We enjoyed a pleasant short stay in room no.1. it has a private terrace with a little garden and a great view over the Lago. We had breakfast in the restaurant with an even more splendid view which made us almost forget the many little treats that we had for breakfast. The hotel
