Went to Castello with our family for 5 days. Its the kind of retreat that enters you into a completely different world. From the hustle of the city, you find yourself in a tranquil, peaceful and beautiful setting, if its the enormous green grounds, the lake, the quaint town of ascona or having a drink on the patio overlooking the...

Private park, private beach on the lake. Heavenly ambience with a poetic silence. Outstanding cuisine and not too stuffy waiters. Expensive must for a lifetime. Day on lake maggiore is divine with a visit to the ancient San Caterina monastery.

Zurich, Switzerland
Reviewed 28 June 2016

One of the few exceptional resort hotels in Switzerland. The property is truly fantastic, combining luxury accomodations, a beautiful lake-front, great facilities and one of the most expansive gardens we have experienced. Property-wise, Castello can compete with the best in the world...easily. Food was generally good. Service is attentive, friendly and refined, although not so relaxed.
