Grand Hotel Majestic


On the shore of Lake Maggiore with a private beach and jetty, and views towards the Borromean Islands.

This is a refined and elegant choice, perfect if you are seeking a peaceful break in the Italian Lakes. The hotel prides itself on its focus on arts and culture with modern art works dotted throughout the hotel. You can spend time relaxing and wandering through the exquisitely landscaped gardens or taking a dip in the indoor pool, or of course the lake itself – there is a small man-made private beach from which you can step straight into the water.

The informal La Terrazza bar is perfect for a quick snack, while La Beola has a refined ambience, innovative Italian cuisine and spectacular views over the gardens and lake. In summer you can make the most of sunny days by dining out on the terrace at the seasonal restaurant Il Portico (weather permitting) and of course wherever you choose to dine, there is an extensive wine list.

The rooms here are traditional in style and reflect the heritage of the hotel. The Superior Rooms have mountain/street views or, for a supplement, a side lake view. Deluxe Rooms Lateral Lake View are more spacious, as are the Junior Suites Mountain/Street View and Lateral Lake View which feature a comfy seating area.
