Lacarno stayPosted Jul 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is an oasis in Locarno. The staff were most helpful and the food was fabulous. The staff were entertaining, helpful and accommodating. The rooms were clean but small (but again this is Europe).

Just great for an one night stayPosted May 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were heading further, but wanted to break up the drive, so chose a one night stay here. I wish we'd booked to stay again on the return, as everything was just what we wanted. A large pool, a cosy room, great food and service in the restaurant, friendly staff and in a quite neighborhood.

Nice PlacePosted Apr 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel and staff were very nice. Good internet and good breakfast. Only minus is that there is not much in the area for food, Locarno is close though.

Elegance on Lake Maggiore.Posted Aug 27, 2012
Pros: The view from the veranda restaurant to accompany the excellent food.
Cons: Sometimes having to search for the barman !
Location: Set back on the hillside in extensive beautifully maintained gardens with great views over the lake. A place to chill !
We really enjoyed our stay in Locarno and could quite easily have spent longer. The hotel arranged a complimentary transfer for us from the railway station following our journey from Zurich on the spectacular route through the St Gotthard tunnel. We were greeted warmly and introduced to the hotel and its facilities over a glass of chilled wine ! Our room was clean and comfortable with air conditioning which was an essential given the summer heat. We made extensive use of the pool and the sun-loungers in the garden and enjoyed excellent meals on the veranda on both evenings. The lakeside path is around 15 minutes walk away and the hotel will lend you bikes if you want to cycle into town. There is also a regular bus service into Locaron that continues to Ascona.

If money doesn't matterPosted Sep 10, 2011 on Hotels.com
This is a very nice located hotel close to the Lago Maggiore (10 minutes walking distance) in Minusio - close to Locarno, Switzerland. The Hotel itself is very nice, clean and the front desk team is just wonderful! They were very helpful in planning trips for the day, restaurant recommendations and very very friendly. There is a nice Spa in the basement and they also offer massages of various types. The big downside is that it is just a little overpriced. I don't recommend the restaurant, the food is not bad, it's just not worth the money, but you'll pay for the view sitting on the patio overviewing the lake. We had dinner the first evening and even though there were plenty of waiters around, they forgot us and kept us waiting for an hour for the main course. We had to remind them... this is not acceptable for 4 stars...

The Esplanade--I didn't want to leave!!!!Posted Jul 19, 2010 on Hotels.com
I traveled solo from Geneva for a one-night only concert at the Moon & Stars Festival and just needed a clean, convenient place to crash...but I got so much more!! The grounds are gorgeous with many gardens and breathtaking views of the mountains and Lake Maggiore. Also the rooms were very nice, contemporary, extremely clean, and spacious with satellite tv. The hotel is conveniently close to the train station and Piazza Grande. The included breakfast buffet was great. I really wish I would have extended my stay.
