We spent 4 days in this hotel and it was great. The atmosphere is fantastic, food is perfection, I even ask for a recipe. The staff is incredible friendly. By far the one who enjoyed the most was our 2 year old son, between all the space, the playground, the donkeys and the swimming pool he didn't have time to... More

This is an elegant hotel with pools, gardens, great food, and world class service.It is quiet and private. is it expensive? Yes, but it is a great experience. There is golf nearby and walking to Ascona, a quaint fishing village is easy.

This is a great luxury hotel. However, it seems to cater to the over 70 years old and under 5 years old. So wealthy grandparents and their young granchildren stay here. We are in our late 40's with a 10 year old son. With that being said, it is still a great hotel. We felt out of place being Americans... More

We came here as a family of 4 (2 kids with age 5 and 3). First, the hotel has great infrastructure. Other than normal hotel facilities (restaurant, spa etc),it has a big garden with outdoor playground for small kids, a little farm with donkeys and horses, direct access to a nice beach. Second, the staff is super friendly and professional.... More

It was our second visit this year just before the winter closure. We thought the service was even more attentive and the staff more helpful and charming than before - even though this was hardly possible. For the first time we had booked halfboard and the food was superb (e.g. a fantastic fish buffet). Once again we enjoyed the beautiful... More

Beside all the amenities it offers for families, couples and solo travellers, the Castello provides a remarkable infrastructure for cyclists as well. A fully equipped bicycle repository, offering towels, fresh water, mechanic tools, air pump, etc. is at every guests disposal and is a perfect starting and arrival point for a tour into one of the dozens of adjacent valleys....

Stayed for 4 days. Excellent attentive service. Beautiful hotel with lovely grounds and gardens. right on the side of the lake. Has the atmosphere of a family-run establishment. Al fresco dining on the lawn and super relaxing evenings. Fantastic Spa and tennis facilities.
