Our daughter & fiance chose Castello Sasso Corbaro in Bellinzona, Switzerland for their June destination wedding. After considering several top tier venues in the Ascona area, the Ronco Albergo and Restorante was selected to host the reception dinner. We sought out an authentic Swiss restaurant with delicious food, top tier service, outstanding views and an intimate feel. Under the direction... More

The best about the Hotel is its location overlooking the lake. You can easily spend the whole day at the pool without getting bored. I read a review stating the service was bad and unfriendly, I have a completely different oppinion. From the very first moment the staff made us feel welcome, especially as many of them are part of... More

I stayed at Albergo Ronco in order to interview the Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe. They could not have been more helpful - allowing us to photograph him in the pool and accommodating all our needs. Apart from that, I would have been happy to stay there as a tourist anyway. The terraces are fabulous, affording 180 degree views of the... More

We stay in the Albergo Ronco and we were generally very happy. Very friendly atmosphere and nice rooms, place and view. It is just a little bit short of 5 stars, mainly because of the value for money - the place is nice but for the cost does not quite get 5 full stars. However, the restaurant is fantastic and...

We have just stayed at this hotel for a second time with our Swiss friends who have been holidaying around lake Maggiori for many years. The hotel is in an elevated position with stunning views of the lake. It is adjacent to the picturesque village churches. The family speaks good English and you can be sure of a warm welcome....

This family run hotel/restaurant has super views over Lago Maggiore. It is in a village 500 feet above the lake and only about a 10 minute drive from Ascona. The brother and sister who now run it were extremely friendly and both speak good english. The pool is great and the food in the restaurant also good with prices around... More

The hotel was recommended by friends, and we stayed there for a weekend trip, which in the end we extended to a week. The view from our room was spectacular, as was the view from our dining table. While not huge, our room was spacious enough and very clean, which is, I find, what really matters in the end. It... More

Albergo Ronco was recommended by a friend, but we have mixed feelings about our choice after spending a week there. To be sure, the view is stunning--and, basically, that's what you pay for. Our room with tiny balcony was very, very small, and the amenities are very basic. The hotel is located in a tiny village south of Ascona way,... More
