“A relaxing place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

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.

We had superb rooms overlooking the lake. We found the facilities excellent and the staff were really helpful. We enjoyed the restaurant and the hotel was a very comfortable base to visit the local islands via the Maggiore Ferries and also the nearby town of Pallanza where we enjoyed some excellent restaurants.

Clean hotel, rooms size is nice (even the "low cost") , staff is super friendly and grives all information or services that can be requested.
Negative points: no flat screen tv!!!, no shower only a bath tub in the bathroom, way to the spa/swimming pool is very hard to find. Parking not easy, but ok, knowing how complicated it is in other spots...
Positive points: THE location is quiet and offers an outstanding view on the lake, you can enjoy this even during the breakfast, the pool is also great, it could open earlier (10am is a little bit late)
Thanks to the team, we enjoyed our stay!

The staff were very helpful with making calls when we were dealing with a member of our party who became ill. The view was not great; we were supposed to have a lake-view room and we had more of a side-view with a small glimpse of the lake. We booked through Luxury Link and got a few extras, including a massage for each member of our party. They allowed us to convert that into a massage + facial for me, as my husband was not interested (silly). Also included was a dinner for two. We were surprised to find that they charged us for sodas at an exorbitant cost, even though we only ordered one meal (as my husband was ill and only wanted soda). We ended up complaining to Luxury Link about it and received a Luxury Link credit for the amount of the sodas. The hotel was unapologetic. It was a nice location, however.

Our stay provided us with the largest room during our time in Italy along with the most magnificent view of Lake Maggiore. The spaciousness of the hotel and what it offers makes it a standout and the winding road to the Hotel was well worth it.

Taking in the beautiful surrounds and grandness of the hotel make for a most relaxing stay.

Only comment is more a humorous observation of the plumbing in the room, very tight!

Room Tip: Must over look the lake.

Historic hotel with super service and wonderfull location. You have to stop there? You will rest and wish you could stay there for ever.
The leader of the hotel will give you a felling of beeing at home.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view over the see

I stayed here for two nights in September and found it to be great as always, I've stayed here on previous trips. The rooms are large, even by North American standards, and they have adequate parking. Location is just about perfect, near the action but not to close and they have water access if you would like to swim. The restaurant was very good and the patio bar is a great way to spend the evening watching the sun set.
