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,...

Simply the best hotel in Switzerland. Great Service. Even with bad weather a great place to stay. Quiet location. Excellent spa facilities. Very large inside and outside pool. Good food. On Fridays a sumptuous fish buffet. We will return many times. von Wartburg

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...

We returned to Castello Del Sole after a 12 year absence with our eight year old son. We were treated graciously, had a beautiful room and attentive service. There were plenty of activities for our son, even on a rainy day. The food was fabulous.
