Except for the location, that we can consider “Grand”, it is definitely the quality and the services that make hotel Bristol “Grand Hotel Bristol”
Grand hotel Bristol comes in a bit of a Victorian appearance and was an actual mansion a large century ago, before the Zaccheria family decided to open it as a Travelers Inn. From that time, the early 1900’s, the hospitality was already developing at Hotel Bristol and Stresa.
The location was attracting people from all over the world, close to the alps and next to one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe, the hotel is enjoying a privileged position. Not even mentioning the close distance to the center of Stresa at only 500 meter. The hotel is actually located in a lovely botanical park separated from the lake by the boulevard. In the center of Stresa you will find lovely restaurants and shops, allowing you to leave the hotel for a little stroll around.
The Grand Hotel Bristol is a good pick for couples and offers good service and facilities. Except for the stunning views over the lake and Borromean islands it offers 2 swimming pools, an indoor and outdoor pool and even a children’s pool. The large well maintained garden makes the setting completely idyllic as well as romantic. Here and around the swimming pool area, you find comfortable sunbeds with umbrellas where you slowly dream away by the view taking you into the alps.
The hotel facilitates two restaurants (1 à la carte) to pick from. We suggest not to forget to ask for the wine menu, as this region produces quite appreciated wines. After diner you can relax and digest your meal in the lounge bar. Should there be a day where the weather doesn’t cooperates, there is an option of using the wellness where treatments and massages are offered, complemented by a sauna and Jacuzzi.
