The new rooms are modern bit lack basic things like for example a hook in the bathroom. The floors are nice wooden floor boards which are very noisy especially if someone above is walking around with shoes. This might not bother the generally older clientele with the rollator. Breakfast for a 4 star hotel is basic, scrambled eggs were not...

The hotel is located in Ascona on the hill and has to be accessed via Monte Veritá on a private road. There is enough parking space around the hotel. A hotel bus is circulating 3 to 4 times a day to Ascona center and back. The rooms and bathrooms of the hotel are pretty small, but ok. The furniture is...

We've been staying at Casa Berno on an off for decades and I can only say it has never disappointed. Beautifully situated on a cliff over looking Lago Maggiore, every room has balcony with unobstructed views down to the village, the surrounding mountains, and the lake down to Italy. Rooms are simple but comfortable. A lovely breakfast is served on...

Booked a junior suite for two nights here last minute. Not cheap (400 CHF per night) but we got what we were looking for: a freshly renovated modern room with an unbelievable dreamy view over the like. Superbly romantic! Went out for dinner - received a free lift from the hotel and Taxi back from Ascona was 28 CHF. Enjoyed...

Could not fault his hotel. Spacious room with balcony. Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast selection and choices for dinner, creative, well prepared and served. Roof-top bar and dining was especially welcome as we had excellent weather. Good pool with beds, tables and towels. Regular shuttle bus into town. Will meet train arrivals. Pleasant woodland paths into Ascona and nearby...

We booked this hotel through Inghams, it being our 10th Lakes and Mountains holiday with them. Of previous similar trips, we have certainly stayed in hotels with better facilities and/or cuIsine, but not one with such a great view. Ascona itself is a very attractive resort, and although it takes 30 minutes to walk down to the lake front from...

My wife and I have made the short trip to Zurich to Ticino many times since living in Switzerland, and have stayed in many great hotels in both Locaro/Ascona and Lugano but I have to say that with the Casa Berno we have found our favourite location for a quiet getaway. The location is, quite simply, stunning. The views of...

- very friendly staff - fantastic view from some of the rooms and the breakfast area - wonderful, quiet area above Ascona - short way by car to the city centre - awesome breakfast!!!!! - spa area needs to be reserved.... Thus you are likely not to catch a slot at the sauna just because another guest is already there....

We have been coming to this hotel since we were about two years old, and have always loved it. Granted some of the clientele tends to be older and some of the areas of the hotel are a little outdated, however this does nothing to undermine the stunning location and views that this hotel offers. The staff are always very...

We have been staying a couple of nights each year at the Casa Berno for a few years now. It has a lovely feeling to it and even if the weather is bad, you can still sit on your balcony and look at that amazing view. My favourite part of our stay has to be walking out onto the terrace...
