We booked the Majestic for 2 nights in May, we weren't too lucky with the weather but this didn't detract from the beauty of the Lake and surroundings. The Majestic is set in an ideal position with a wonderful view of the lake, very close to Pallanza where the ferry visits the Borromeo islands daily (a must do). Our assessment of the Majestic is pitched at average as the allocation of our first room, which was pleasant, had a fridge which didn't work (it was replaced when requested by a larger fridge which didn't fit into the space) and the safe (located inconveniently inside a cupboard very low down i.e. not really accessible for people with bad backs). The safe was not bolted to anything and because of this we asked for a different room. The staff did this very quickly and were very helpful. In the re-allocated room the fridge worked fine but the safe was (although bigger) the same, this time it was attached to a shelf (also removable). There was no bath in the first room allocated ( a standard room no lake view) only a shower, and no proper shower, only a bath in the second room although it had a hand held shower attachment but no screen or curtain (perhaps you get one in the lake view rooms ?). We looked at the menu for the restaurant but decided it was too expensive and choices not to our liking. The spa area was painted in very dull colours which made it look like a dungeon. Free Parking is available right outside which is very useful but may be limited if the hotel is full. Buffet Breakfast was fine with the usual choices but no toaster, it's held in a room with a good view of the lake. This hotel is a good choice if you can afford a lake view room and the weather is good.
