Check-in experience was seamless and I was offered the Ticino card (free public transport) without asking. Room with lake view was small but had everything you needed and was clean. Only negative point would be the hard mattress but I guess everyone has different preferences and some people might like it. WiFi has good speed but is not the most stable, often reconnecting especially if out on the balcony. Wired internet is also available, though I didn't try it. No mini-fridge or safe in the room.
Helpful staff and nice to have 2 good restaurants associated with hotel with discount. Our room was very small - clean and well-appointed but tight. I would stay there again given good location - right around the corner from the promenade.
Spent 18 days in 4 different countries and our time in Ascona was by far our most memorable! Not only is the location of Piazza Ascona absolutely breathtaking, the service and attention to detail was top notch.
A great hotel in a fantastic location on the shore of the lake. Hotel staff were friendly and quick at checking me in. My lake view room was in good decor and very clean. Even though the room was on the side of the lake we had no issue with noise. Breakfast is served in a nice room and you have the choice to eat outside as well.. There is ample food to choose from for your continental breakfast.
We ate there several times during a recent stay for the annual jazz festival and found the food to be freshly made and very tasty. The staff were multilingual and very helpful in ordering. Prices here are higher because of the location and the Swiss Franc Exchange rate is so poor for us brits!
Salad and spaghetti carabonara were very basic and rather bland. Quick and friendly service. Excellent location, if you‘re lucky you can have lunch outside in february! Would go back for a drink but, not for lunch. Ok prices for prime location.
Angmering Manor is situated just off the A259 in Angmering Village. The interior is splendid, with dark panelling to the walls and exquisite chandeliers over polished tables and wooden flooring. There were 10 in our party and we had a choice of two meals, either two or 3 courses. The meal was excellent. Not only is the Manor a Restaurant but they have 17 rooms to let, a Spa and a pool.It was bliss to indulge in the opulence.
Piazza Ascona Hotel is nicely situated besides the riverwalk. The rooms are basic but very clean. They convince with a nice little balcony with a stunning view to Lagio Maggiore. The day starts with a reasonable good breakfast which can be nicely enjoyed on the terrace with a nice view to the lake too. The personal is very polite and helpful. There are quite a lot restaurants alongside the riverwalk very worth a visit. They are just within a very short walking distance. All in all a very nice stay for an extended weekend, very relaxing and really worth a visit.
This review is for the restaurant. We got a discount as we were staying at Casa Della Olive, so thought we'd give it a try. The waiter was quite rude when we tried to book a table. He was rude and unhelpful again when I tried to use my 'free prosecco' voucher we'd been given by the hotel. One of his superiors put him right, but by then we really didn't want to come back. Food was ok, if I remember, but nothing special. Great setting, but we wouldn't go back because of the service.
The view from my room was amazing. Although the room was small because I took a single room it was comfortable. The service was perfact. The hotel is in the center of ascona and on the lake. Next year I will come again.
