“Almost perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Big room with huge balcony and wonderful view. The owner is very friendly! Nice big breakfast, the food is good but there is room for improvement, for example something more local in flavor. Staff at the reception are very friendly but the waiters could still be trained to be more professional in terms of service and friendliness. We really did appreciate the space everywhere which probably is related to the architectural profession of the owner's wife. No overcrowding of furniture and lots of room between the dining tables..... Overall a really nice place to relax, slightly away from but overlooking the lake and town

A fantastic boutique hotel. You are in a dream world when you step out to balcony of your room or the restaurant. Great staff, good food, reasonable rates, and fabulous view. Downtown is within walking distance but, like every other location in Switzerland, you will be hiking to it and back.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view, it is worth it if you are going to spend anytime in your room at all.

Waking up to a view of the snowy mountains and the lake was breathtaking / hotel has a policy of upgrading to the best unoccupied room, so in the off season, you can really enjoy ascon and the lovely funicular and all the christmas decorations and it can be very affordable for a trully wonderful room.

Room Tip: higher floors have better view and large balconies on 4th floor.

Delta hotel is a beutiful hotel, clean and spacious. We have stayed in this hotel around 4 times and will defenetily come back any time during summer/spring...
The swiming pool is quite nice and one can choose to sunbath in the nice yard close to the pool or right next to it... you'd feel really on holidays, almos on the baeach!!!
the only minor thing is its restaurant, the food is not the greatest, however by being so close to Ascona you can always go out and try different restaurants!

it is a nice hotel and staff is friendly... it'd make it even a better place to have a 5* chef... but in the mean time we'll always go back!!

+ view over Ascona
+ centrally located
+ front desk
+ parking
+ restaurant

- outdated room
- small room
- carpet smells

All overall summary: It is ok, but not more, at least not that expensive as many other outdated Hotels in Switzerland. Can recommend it if you are looking for a hotel with a nice view over Ascona.

This hotel has beautiful views and everything about it was well done. The owner came out to wish us all a Happy Easter over Sunday breakfast and we enjoyed a great evening with the Croatian bartender in the downstairs lounge. Everyone was pleasant and professional.

Great hotel on the hill overlooking Lago Maggiore and the town of Ascona. Hotel was pretty nice with clean rooms. Our room also had phenomenal views and a large balcony where we could sit and chill. The outdoor pool was also pretty nice. The staff was overall pretty helpful and friendly. A short walk down the hill from the hotel is the town center and the lake - very convenient. The bus stop for bus #1 from Locarno is also just down the hill, so it is fairly easy to get there from the Locarno train station.
