We had 5 nights in the Grand Hotel Majestic. The hotel has a magnificent position next to the lake with wonderful views. It is a five minute walk from Pallanza. The hotel was built in the 1800s and retains its historic charm while many modern features have been added such as the new restaurant and swimming pool. Our room, superior with partial lake view, was on the small side but perfectly adequate. Our view of the lake was as good as those rooms facing directly to the lake. The hotel garden was peaceful, quiet and well suited to relaxing with a book. We had 2 evening meals which were good. Breakfast was slightly disappointing. We thought drinks were expensive. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. Overall a relaxing place to stay.
