Score from 184 reviews Superb
Staff were friendly, helpful and relaxed, not over-starched as they can be in 5 star properties. Our room was upgraded to a suite - both our suites were beautiful. The bathrooms are a show-stopper, with starlit ceiling and colour changing shower head. Restaurant was fabulous, everything fantastic
Children's meal options were uninspired. My children will eat a small portion of practically anything, so long as it's not spicy, so seeing the usual suspects - schnitzel with chips and spagetti napoli was a bit disappointing. Don't get me wrong, they were freshly prepared and done well, but I just would have liked to have seen one or two additional choices, perhaps something pared back from the adult menu. Kids tiramisu was a hit!

It is very calm. A great with with so many switches to turn things on I couldn't figure all of them out eventhough they were explained to me. Great restaurant. Very luxurious. A great view.Would be great for mountain walking I think but the weather was not accomodating.
If you want to be away it is great but I would have prefered to have stayed somewhere with more action when I walked out of the door. But you can take the little train down to town and up the mountain.
Everything. Perfect 10!!
It was all wonderful and the view amazing. A super room and we just loved it. In fact so much so,that we stayed for a third night
This is certainly a 5 star property, I cannot say enough good about the facility, the grounds, the staff and the food. It was a first time stay for my wife and I. We spent a week there. The view is terrific, it is conveniently located about 3 minutes walking to a fanicular that takes you down to the center of town. It lands about 1/2 block from the train station. The staff will give you tickets if you ask. We booked a jr suite and it was very quiet and quite large with a ceiling height wall that can be closed to separate the two main large rooms and very soundproof. It has a full kitchen and many food prep amenities included. Room service was efficient too. Definitely would go back and will recommend it to friends.
A small but potentially significant thing in the connected-world, was that the WIFI was very slow and hard to connect to in the room. In the, lobby it was very fast and quick to hook into.
Lovely location and views Staff more than helpful, especially with email questions Elegant rooms with exceptional amenities Small personal feeling and quiet Innovative menus
Wished funicular operated later - difficult to enjoy the jazz evenings in Ascona with a 10 PM close
beautiful room with an outstanding view.
Unfriendly director, who is not interested in guests.
Top location, top staff, top view, top top top… just an amazing and unforgettable stay! The room was like incredible, i've never seen something like this before! ..and don't miss a dinner in the fabulous restaurant "il ristorante", it's just amazing an super-tasty! We celebrated my boyfriends 30th birthday in the Villa Orselina - after arriving they surprised us with a prosecco! It wasn't not just a great and warm welcome, it was the beginning uf a magical stay... We love to come back soon! Grazie mille per tutto!
Nice view, nice grounds
Bit isolated up on funicular
Stylish interior and view.
Indoor heated pool Helpful staff Ample breakfast

It was the best staying we ever had. Everything was just perfect and we are looking for to go back as soon as possible
