The Grand Hotel Majestic is a beautiful hotel, situated directly on the lake with stunning views of the islands and mountains. The restaurant was very nice, with dining on the veranda overlooking the lake. The food was delicious and they were accommodating for ordering a pasta course not on the menu. The wine list was the right size not overwhelming... More

Great location, comfortable room with old fashioned tv and only two English speaking channels CNN and BBC rolling news only. We chose a lake view room with balcony giving stunning views of the lake. The best times being early morning and sunset. Shortly prior to our departure to Italy we were advised of changes to the half board arrangements we... More

I have visited Italy many times in the past and have, without exception, loved it finding the people warm, the hotels proud, and the locals welcoming. Then I visited the Grand Hotel Majestic in Pallanza! This was quite simply the worst hotel and worst holiday I have ever experienced. It was also the most expensive- by a long, long way.... More

Dear Guest The original booking enquiry was made by a third party acting on your behalf. We had the constant feeling that you were very demanding and never satisfied with our offers and solutions. We also arranged for you an appointment with a local representative of your TO, who came to see you and tried to find a solution to... More

Our room was very comfy and the location is wonderful with magnificent views of the lake and surrounds. Quite nice terrace bar and pool lawn areas. Very very expensive gin & tonics and an officious breakfast waiter were our only concerns. Close walk to town for dining options etc and felt very safe walking at night.

We've stayed here several times in the past, and have enjoyed the wonderful location, grand spaces, elegant rooms, excellent food, and attentive service. The location and the spaces are as ever, but the level of service, cuisine, and attentiveness have slipped several notches since our last visit. Breakfast, which used to be excellent, has become a very ordinary buffet, complete... More

Lake maggiore an hour nw from Milan is a surprise waiting to be discovered compared to most Italian cities. Incredibly beautiful with islands of magnificent palaces and gardens. So much to do with the alps nearby and major hiking valleys to discover you could spend a week with this as home base. The Grand is spectacular on a point of... More

We stayed here on a works convention for 3 nights including a black tie dinner. The room was very good apart from the lack of an iron and a 8 Euro charge for the hotel to iron a shirt.
