We had a perfect stay and enjoyed every second at this Hotel. The gardens are kept extremely tidy and are the most beautiful Hotel gardens I have ever seen. The service was outstanding throughout the Hotel. Breakfast was fantastic. Enjoyed the pools, Spa and of cause the bike rides. Will be back.

My partner and I just came back from 3 days at Giardino and this hotel is beautiful and perfectly located as near Ascona which is a dream. Our arrival was made very smooth and the food at the Pool bar is more than decent without forgetting the dinner at Ecco which was magnificent. The south facing room we had was... More

It's an oasis just a short bike ride away from port-side Ascona. Their large fleet of bicycles were custom made for the resort. Everything about the hotel is topnotch. Great service and staff, beautiful gardens, spacious and well appointed guest rooms and large comfortable public spaces. Make this your choice of hotels in Ascona

We decided to spend a short-break at this hotel due to the mostly very positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Overall, we had to say that the price we paid was/is definitely not worth the experience. We booked a suite for Sfr 920, so our expectations were fairly high. What we found was a small bedroom that hardly left any room for... More

Wonderful staff, beautiful but not over the top grounds, great food at the restaurant and great value for Switzerland for such a high standard. Would definitely go back. Great breakfast too. Relaxed atmosphere. Our one year old son was made to feel v welcome. Thank you for wonderful stay.

My wife and our 18 month old spent a wonderful week in Giardino in September. This was our first travel with the little one and for obvious reasons we were very apprehensive about how she was going to handle the travel and new environment. I cannot make enough superlative comments about how helpful and accommodating the entire staff at Giardino... More

We decided short notice to stop over at the Giardino on our way home from Tuscany! The warm welcome, the friendly staff and the great service make this already beautiful place magical. The Giardino is definitely a must when travelling through this area.

This hotel is one of the best in Switzerland and the location is beautiful. The park is in excellent condition and the rooms are nice and very clean. Maybe it is not on the top of all the modern electronic possibilities (like iPads, music connection, streaming) but the hotel is clean and cozy. The customer service is professional and helpful....

This is a beautiful hotel on large grounds with wonderful outdoor pool, terrific spa area, and lots of outdoor seating for drinks and dinner. The interior is quite attractive, but most activity is outdoors. Free bikes are provided, which is a huge plus, with central Ascona and Locarno nearby and accessible without major hills. The rooms are huge with nice... More
