Lago Maggiore meeting venues: Grand Hotel Bristol

Grand Hotel Bristol, Lago Maggiore

The Lago Maggiore region has an abundance of great meeting venues to offer from modern conference centres to historical buildings. These places and their staff will ensure that your meeting runs smoothly and that you get the best out of your stay on Lake Maggiore. One of the four hotels in the Zacchera hotel group, the Grand Hotel Bristol was formally a manor house and has been carefully renovated to maintain the building’s original elegant style.

The Grand Hotel Bristol, situated right on Lake Maggiore in Stresa, is one of four hotels owned by the Zacchera family. The Zacchera’s believe strongly in high-end hospitality and good quality service making the Grand Hotel Bristol a great place to host a meeting or event. Recently the family have added a new value to their list of priorities – their love of and respect for the environment. This can be clearly seen in the Hotel Bristol that is EMAS certified and a partner in Lago Maggiore’s Green Meeting initiative. A number of good environmental practises can be observed in the hotel, such as solar panels to heat the pool, waste recycling and the use of suppliers who have an ecolable.

Its conference centre is considered to be one of the best in Italy and boasts 14 stylish rooms that cater for a PAX of 10 to 250 and are all equipped with the most advanced technology in the industry. A glass dome over the lobby in Art Nouveau style allows light to filter gently into the room, which makes a wonderful exhibition hall or place for coffee breaks. The garden can also be used for gala dinners and other side events during the meeting. The hotel’s staff have been trained specifically in the organising and management of meetings and events. They are highly aware that attention to detail is very important and is the best guarantee for a perfect result and are excellent at putting this knowledge into practice. This combination of great service and high quality meeting facilities makes the hotel an ideal meeting and conference location centre for events and corporate meetings.

Other facilities available include: 253 rooms equipped with WIFI connection, a bar, a restaurant that can cater for 500 people, a garden with outdoor swimming pool, and a wellness area and indoors swimming pool.
