The hotel had very nice staff and was in a good location. You do need a car however to go out for dinner. The breakfast was very good with lots of options. Only minor points for improvement, there wasn’t always a parking place and there was no ac in the rooms.

We chose this accommodation due to it's convenience to Verzasca valley. We enjoyed the location - about 10 mins walk from the lake - and the lovely view and pool. Room is a decent size and beds very comfortable - our room was on 1st floor. Breakfast was fresh and nice.

As we were a bit late to source for a hotel for 3 families with alltogether 13 people for a weekend in July in the Locarno area, we chose to go for the Garni Hotel Minusio. The hotel is about 5 mins drive away from the lake and Locarno and as such conveniently located for a number of outdoor activities. We had the so called family rooms, which are essentially two rooms plus a small entrance area for additional privacy. The rooms were not very spacious, but functional and had a nice balcony. Amenities were provided although limited, but the hotel and the room was spotless clean and well maintained. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and even gave all of the children a bit of "pocket money" for their stay...a nice touch. The breakfast was a small buffet spread, with bread, cheese, cold cuts, cereals, juices and the likes. Everything was fresh and tasty. The hotel came also with a small heated outdoor pool, which we didnt use due to the bad weather. Main drawback is that there is no restaurant or official lounge or similar, so in the evening the hotel is dead and having kids upstairs in bed, it would have been great to have a bar or so just to chill out among the adults.
