Hotel Review

Italy’s Lake Maggiore is a mecca for tourists, but as a guest of the Hotel Eden Roc, it feels like having one of Italy’s most famous lakes to yourself. Although located in Ascona, Switzerland, there is a strong Italian influence resonating throughout the hotel – excellent Swiss service, coupled with warm Latin hospitality - what's not to like. Spacious 5* rooms all come with a panoramic (lake or mountain) balcony or terrace.

There are four restaurants with La Brezza being the Michelin-star restaurant and worthy of your time (enjoy the sommeliers wine recommendations for local Swiss wine and excellent pairings to heighten your dining experience). Other restaurants including the Marine Restaurant, fun and more casual but still with the same high service level.

Enjoy access to e-bikes or Vespas and plump for the hotel’s beachside activities which include kayaking, paddle boarding or just lounging around on the private beach.

See What They Say

Why do people love staying in your hotel? Guests at Hotel Eden Roc love the direct access to Lake Maggiore via our private beach. This location gives them the opportunity, to enjoy the hotels’ very own sailing school to the fullest while practicing activities on the water. In addition to that, the hotel is very close to the piazza of Ascona which is a great place for a stroll through the village or an aperitivo by the lake. Also, the cities of Locarno and Lugano are near the hotel and offer opportunities for city strolls. The huge garden (10’000 sqm) is another big plus at Hotel Eden Roc, plus of course the hotels’ four restaurants, all of them with big terraces facing the lake.
What is there to do in the area? Our guests can either enjoy our private beach plus the sailing school and the lake, spend the day in Ascona, Locarno or Lugano to do some shopping or drive to Italy (about 20 minutes only) and feel the Dolce Vita there. For outdoor-enthusiasts, there’s great mountains around that offer the possibility for hiking with fabulous views. Then of course, there’s the two valleys (Vallemaggia and Valle Verzasca) with rivers that have the cleanest water you’ll ever see. Especially when it gets very hot in summer, these are the places to be and to cool down.
What kind of breakfast do you offer? We offer a buffet breakfast with hot dishes upon order freshly prepared for our guests. The buffet includes lots of vegan options plus focuses on regional food.
Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally? Yes, we do have four restaurants in total: La Brezza (1 Michelin Star, 17 GaultMillau Points) for modern gourmet cuisine, Marina for international dishes in a very fancy environment, Restaurant Eden Roc for classical French cuisine with a twist and La Casetta for freshly grilled fish and homemade pasta. In addition to that, the typical Grotti in Ticino are always a great experience and worth a try.
What facilities do you have for children and can you fit extra beds in your rooms ? We do have a kids’ club that offers in- and outdoor activities for kids from 3 to 12. Under the age of 3, the concierge is always happy to book a babysitter. We can fit extra beds in our rooms and children under 3 stay for free.
What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers? Eden Roc with its huge garden, the location right on the shores of Lake Maggiore and so many leisure activities is the perfect place for a holiday all year round.
