Confession to start with - we like the Italian Lakes and as this hotel overlooks Largo Maggiore it had a head start. However it turned out to be ideal. Situated in Stresa, a lovely town catering for visitors, it is one of several hotels along the promenade. We did a quick recce into most of the others and decided we had chosen well.
The hotel decor is more classically regal than contemporary modern and this suited us fine.
It was clean and well decorated. Plenty of staff in all areas who were well versed in English and were pleasant and helpful. Restaurant staff quick to serve and helpful in advising on the various dishes, giving individual attention if required. The food was delicious although naturally in an Italian style.
The indoor pool and spa were in a beautifully furnished area.
The bedroom was well fitted out but could have benefitted from just a little more space.
We had a room facing the lake, beautiful view, and although the road was between the lake and our room we didn't get any noise at night.
You'll gather from this we liked the Bristol and we did. Will certainly try to return.
Well maintained grounds, outdoor pool and plenty of sun beds / umbrella's
