The hotel quite exceeded our expectations. Beautiful features and elegance all around the lobby and other common areas. We had a very nice room with a beautiful view of the lake. 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.

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...
