Grand Hotel Majestic in Verbania, Italy
Dating back to 1870, the Grand Hotel Majestic dreamily evokes the spirit of la belle epoque. This member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World was a favorite with crowned heads of state and musicians such as Debussy and Toscanini, and today a lovingly carried out renovation returns it to its original glory. Beautifully situated on a promontory that juts into Italy's Lake Maggiore, it boasts classically styled bedrooms and suites, many with balconies and most with views of the water.
From English-style gardens to sweeping alpine views, you will feel as if you are living inside a dream. You might relax on the intimate, private beach, or take a private boat to discover the charms of the Borromean Islands—the 17th-century gardens of Isola Bella, the fishing village of Isola Superiore and the unspoiled natural beauty of Isola Madre. The setting for Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms, Stresa is a wonderful place to linger before returning to indulge at the hotel's Beauty and Wellness Centre, La Beola restaurant, and Il Toscanini bar.

Reviews for Grand Hotel Majestic
This will be our third stay at this hotel that is how good we think it is. It is classy quiet beautiful position overlooking the lake. Plenty of eating places a short easy walk into the town. Also there is easy access to the boats that go to Stressa and the Islands. Breakfast is lovelley served overlooking the Lake. We found the staff helpfull and caring. We most enjoy sitting in the gardens .A real peacefull get away.

Seven nights of comfort at the beautiful Lake Maggiore. Hotel placed just out of town on the lakeside. Easy walking into town. Lovely room overlooking the lake. Every member of staff (housekeeping, bar, restaurant , reception) that we met were courteous and helpful which made our visit so enjoyable. Advice of places to visit and where to eat was invaluable. As suggested, we did take a superb lunch at Osteria AL BO EUC in Orta. Reception personnel were charming and helpful, particularly Favianna (I hope that I have her name correctly) who helped us with a problem when â€˜checking inâ€™ our flight on line.

Stylish,elegant hotel. Not ostentatious but beautifully decorated and in a wonderful location overlooking Lake Maggiore. Delightfully helpful staff who are both friendly and efficient. A short walk to the town with good restaurants and local ferries.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were lucky enough to have a lake view. The Hotel is stunning with fabulous service. The central atrium is amazing and I have never seen such beautiful orchids. We had two meals at the restaurant and both were well beyond my expectations. Impeccable table service, beautifully paired wines and food to die for. My only criticism would be that as non seafood eating people, our choices were limited. Breakfast was typically European with all sorts of pastries, cold meats, cheeses, cereals etc on offer. Our room was in need of updating but typical of Italy. It was clean, well serviced, the bed was comfortable and the free wifi was great. The bathroom was small but again, clean and well serviced. No extractor fan in the bathroom but this seems to be normal in Italy. Would we stay here again - absolutely!

The hotel provided to us large rooms with view to the Lake. Great location, great views. Ideal for a short swim every morning. The service is good. The breakfast is well supplied and tasty. Nice atmosphere for a famliy or a romantic weekend.
