We had traveled by train from Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan over the previous 9 days heading for Lake Maggiore in Stressa, Italy. We were in a shuttle bus driving through the mountains of northern Italy as we began to descend on a very curvy road in the Village of Stressa to the Grand Hotel Bristol on the main street... More

We had a 2 night stay here on our Cosmos Tour. What a magical area, the hotel is huge with magnificent views right on the lake. Some on our tour upgraded to a lake view room and they said it was well worth it. Some of the hotels we have stayed at on our tour have been terrible, but was... More

This hotel impressed me, that is hard to do. The location is wonderful. We had a lake view. Our view looked out to Isola Bella. We had a small balcony you could walk out on and take pictures. The grounds and interior of the hotel look like something out of an elegant old movie. Had a very lovely morning walk... More

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Bristol as part of a tour group. We were pleasantly surprised to get a front corner room with one balcony facing beautiful Lake Maggiore, and on the other we could of course also see the lake, but also, the additional pretty views on the other side of the hotel. The room was elegantly decorated.... More

Two of us stayed in Grand Hotel Bristol for 3 nights together with a tour group. The choice of hotel and room category are designated by the tour operator. This hotel is big and elegant, separated from Lake Maggiore only by a road and a landscaped "boardwalk". Good surprise! Hotel interior looks palatial, with French style decor and furniture. Our...

Good quality of hotel with plenty of public space. Relaxed atmosphere excellent service and unpretentious. Lake facing rooms have wonderful view and the rooms overlooking the pool are also very good. Hotel is a 10 minute stroll to Stresa along the banks of the lake. Only downside is only limited free wifi then you have to do a survey which... More

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Bristol for a week in July 2014. The location is ideal, just a short walk into the centre of Stresa and the boat terminals. We had a balcony with a side view of the lake and the views are superb. The food was good, the rooms very clean and spacious and the staff were... More
