    • 6.0.Good

      We had requested a quiet room and were given one just above front entrance. On request they changed the room but you could hear all the bathrooms near by. We felt that for the price we paid the little things were missing- only plastic glasses, one waste bin, very poor hand towels

      Nice hotel but noisy due to road traffic

      Noisy from main street and surrounding hotels. A bit corporate, several meetings going on limiting access to some areas of the hotel.

      Nice hotel with fabulous views, close to the Lake

      We had a relaxing and wonderful stay at this hotel. Great location, easy walk to the town, cable car, boat hire etc. The upholstery in our room was tired and the bath didn’t fit the space and leaked at one end but we didn’t really notice as the view and balcony were so spectacular. Reception staff were a bit cold, unlike the waiting staff who were lovely. Pool was gorgeous. Would definitely return. There’s a bit of faded glory about the place.

      A return to the grand tour

      To visit Stresa is to peek back at what tourism was for our Edwardian ancestors on their grand tours. The promenade alongside Lake Maggiore is lined by grand hotels the first of which is the Bristol. Inside the Bristol you are transported back to a modernised version of that kind of hotel. Grand is the word, but looking at its neighbouring hotel, not the grandest. This was an enjoyable experience and I would repeat it willingly.The situation is magnificent, they have used shrubbery to carefully screen the garage and the swimming pool area for increased privacy and to improve The facade.

      My daughter left her school book in the hotel room and we had to catch an early train to make our flight. I called the hotel and asked them what I should do and they said stay on the train and we will mail the book and they did!!!! Excellent place to stay and mind blowing customer service!!!

    • 8.0.Very good

      Grand Hotel Bristol was in such a great location, very walkable to shops and restaurants and right on the water. We came to Stresa for a wedding that was only about a 4 minute drive from the hotel. Stresa is such a beautiful timeless little town and the hotel displayed Italian classic decor. The staff was friendly and you could say that the inside was 'dated' but it was still beautiful. Our room had a lake view with a small balcony as well. My only complaint would be that the mattress and pillows were a little firm but all in all this hotel was exactly what we were looking for.
