The Swiss Holiday Company

Locarno / Ticino

Hotel Garni du Lac All year

The welcoming Garni du Lac occupies a great position close to Lake Maggiore and the station. A few steps away is the wonderful Old Town with its large colonnades and the Piazza Grande. This is the colourful heart of Locarno, with abundant cafés and restaurants.

The hotel offers a tempting buffet breakfast which can be taken outside on its first floor terrace. There is also a lounge offering free coffee. The position of the hotel takes away the need for a restaurant and bar as there is a great choice available locally, from the café and trattoria just next door to the eateries of the colourful Old Town all within a short walk.

We recommend the hotel for its central position and comfortable, air conditioned accommodation.
