Great Hotel Bristol

We had our final lunch together at the Great Hotel Bristol.  It was just an amazing place.
The Grand Hotel Bristol enjoys a magnificent location on the lakeshore of Stresa, a true pearl of Lake Maggiore, famous all over the world for the extraordinary way the beautiful landscape merges with the sumptuous dwellings scattered throughout it. Hotel guests can enjoy a privileged view of Isola Bella and the Borromeo Gulf. The prestigious building that is now the Grand Hotel in Stresa was originally a noble residence, and careful renovation work has allowed it to retain its elegance while enhancing it with modern conveniences. The Zacchera family’s traditional dedication to hospitality at the highest level completes the features that make the Grand Hotel Bristol an ideal place for relaxing and discovering the beauty of Lake Maggiore.

We had the most amazing meal.

The meal was served by finely dressed waiters and waitresses.  Of course, this was the best meal we had the whole trip.  We were all very impressed. There was wine and water on the table.

 

 

After the meal was served and eaten we were served champagne.  Grant toasted and thanked everyone.  Sean and Roland stood up and said something. We then drank our champagne.  Our table noticed that there was open bottles of champagne that the waiters were seeming to take away.  We all told them we will drink that so you don’t have to through it away.  So we made the sacrifice and drank some of the open bottles for them.

We then all thanked our guides Liz and Luigi.  Classical Movements furnished our dessert.  This cake was carried out by two waiters and about 4 feet in diameter. It was really fabulous.

 

After enjoying our dessert we walked back to our bus to head back to Milan.
