We had a wonderful stay at the Grand Hotel Bristol which is located directly on the lake in Stresa and at very close proximity (approx 10 min walk) to the ferries to Isola Grande, Isola Bella and Isola Pescatore. The hotel itself is beautiful with a stunning lobby, grounds and reception area. We were given a wonderful room with a... More

We stayed at the Hotel Bristol on a Ledger holiday. The hotel is really lovely, rooms good size, nicely decorated, furnished and comfortable. Did,nt use the swimming pool or spa facilities so cannot comment on these. The dinning room is nice, however the food does not live up to the star rating of the hotel, more 2* food. Choice for...

The girls at the Front Desk were extremely kind and helpful. Breakfast was very good. We highly recommend this hotel to our friends and hope and we would stay... More

We truly loved the 'old world' elegance of this hotel. Younger, more 'chic' people may not find it to their taste though. Very clean, the room was roomy, and the waterfront view was BEAUTIFUL. The dining area foe inside/outside dining was stylish, roomy and the food was very good! At breakfast, I noticed that as soon as a dish was... More

This hotel was just beautiful. The service, the location and the ambiance was great. The lake is beautiful, and this hotel is directly across the street. The hotel restaurant was fabulous. This is a beautiful area, and the lake is gorgeous. it is one of the cleaner lakes in Northern Italy. What a fantastic place.

Lots of character to this beautiful hotel. The lobby has lots of charm as does the nice classic bar. Dinners were good. The room was a good size. Hotel is located across the street from the lake. Room was well decorated. Limited wifi. Huge bathroom. 2 pools.
