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.

We booked this hotel for our 30 th wedding anniversary. What a choice! We often stayed in luxury hotels in the East where hospitality and pampering the guest is the standard. But Castello del Sole breaks the records for the hotels we stayed in, in Europe! What a treat! It is sublime in any way! The welcome was very warm,...

This place is amazing! Never disappoints!! We go there to just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery, wonderful food and unique atmosphere. Somehow this place balances friendly staff, highly professional standards and comfort without ever becoming pretentious. Although the hotel can be busy, you never feel crowded. Lots of nooks and crannies, logias and arcadian reading areas dotted around the...

Wonderful location, history, grounds and staff. Impeccably maintained and superbly run. My only objection is the restaurant's staff focused attentiveness to couples or groups. I had traveled with my mom and observed that any two females (as there were others beside us) were being served second or last despite having arrived in the dining room first. While couples/groups were being...
