Tobler Family since 1911

Johann-Rudolf and Malvine Tobler-Scherrer opened Hotel Tobler as a small guesthouse set in the dreamy fishing village of Ascona in the midst of vineyards back in 1911. Theodor and Amalia Tobler-Blumer took over the Hotel in the 1930s. Since 1996 the Hotel has been run by Walter and Marianne Tobler, which is the third generation. Walter and Marianne made great investments in the last 15 years, introducing technical equipment that is both friendlier to the environment and also blends in with the overall atmosphere as much as possible.
Today the Hotel is more beautiful than ever. A greenhouse with rare and unique orchids and citrus trees lets today’s park complex with its automatic irrigation system flourish anew each day. Over the past 100 years our philosophy of hospitability and the great pleasure in our work have never left us, not during the two world wars or various economic crises. This reinforces our wish that Hotel Tobler will shine in its unforgettable splendor and with all of its uniqueness under the forth generation as well.


What we offer you We are a family-run 4-star hotel situated on one of Ascona’s sunny slopes overlooking Lago Maggiore. Located in tranquil surroundings, this spacious 10,000 square metre hotel has 33 rooms, the Tre Palme restaurant with sun terrace, the Orchidea panorama room, open-air swimming pool, and the Roman Bath with Tepidarium and rest area. Our Mediterranean park is full of exotic and indigenous flowers and plants, and our love for nature is evident by the way in which we care for them. Make new discoveries as you relax amid this unique diversity.
Feel at home as soon as you arrive... As a hotel with the personal touch, this is one of the guidelines that we operate by. Supported by its staff, the Tobler family has stood behind the achievements of this establishment since 1911. We mainly appeal to people travelling on their own, to families, and to nature and flower enthusiasts from European countries who wish to combine their relaxation with a variety of activities. Guests feel totally at home in our hotel’s family atmosphere where friendly, attentive service is a priority. We foster ongoing relationships with our regular guests and go the extra mile to ensure that their wishes are fulfilled. We have been awarded level II of the Swiss Seal of Quality. This is given in recognition of our constant efforts to guarantee top-quality service. For us, this involves exceeding our guests’ expectations – they are our reason for being and their satisfaction with our service is important to us. As our success depends on this, we consider complaints as an opportunity to improve our service.
Our staff are the key to our business. Their natural friendliness and motivation extends our family-style hospitality to our guests and cements customer relationships. Congenial, helpful teamwork is our hallmark and this results in respect and appreciation for and from our guests. We value the individuality of each person who works here, and have a flat, performance-oriented organizational structure.
Nurturing the environment is important to us and we demonstrate this by recycling our wastes, conserving natural resources, using solar energy and insulating our buildings. We do all we can to be a positive influence in our community and to enjoy the respect of our guests, partners, suppliers, employees and members of the public.
