Welcome to the Chic and Sunny side of Mont Blanc!
The Grand Hotel Royal e Golf dates back to 1854 and in its centenary lifetime it has hosted some illustrious personalities, including the Queen of Italy Margherita of Savoy, in honour of whom the name “Royal” was given to the hotel. A lover of nature and the silence of the vast valleys, the Sovereign used to spend lengthy periods in the Hotel with her courtiers.
There are many welcoming spaces available to our Guests; enjoy a cocktail in the Lounge Bar, sitting in the garden beneath centuries-old trees or on the verandas that overlook the pedestrian street, or savour dinner in one of our restaurants, the classic Grand Royal, the gastronomic Petit Royal, the hip and chic Ruinart Rosé champagne bar or in the very romantic Tour Royale, where you can enjoy a unique experience tasting the dishes skilfully prepared in show-cooking events in the intimacy of a small room reserved exclusively to a single table for 2/4 people.
During winter, our Concierge Neige will assist you in organising your made-to-measure holiday, filled with limitless emotions; or in summer, take advantage of the Luxury Summer Experience: lots of activities to rediscover the luxury of a holiday in the mountains…
These are just a few of the special features of this splendid and historical 5 Star Hotel in Courmayeur. Among typical vintage furniture, fine carpets and traditional ornaments, you will encounter the hospitality and discretion of our Staff, discovering all the charm of the Grand Hotel Royal e Golf and the magic of a fairy-tale land.
Like all other well-loved fairytales ours can also begin with: “Once upon a time”...
The Grand Hotel Royal e Golf boasts a couple of centuries of life: it was in fact in mid 1854 when Lorenzo Bertolini, a young entrepreneur from Turin with solid experience in the hotel industry, decided to develop his business in Courmayeur, a small Valle d’Aosta town, already famous at the time for its major mountaineering feats.
The most well-known names of the aristocracy of the time stayed at our Luxury Hotel in Courmayeur of the enterprising Mr Bertolini; one illustrious and famous guest was the Queen of Italy Margherita of Savoy, in honour of whom the name “Royal” was given to the hotel.
His mountain success also saw Bertolini invest on the Riviera; in fact, he created the Hotel Royal of San Remo, which was followed by other facilities in different locations including Milan, Florence, Genoa and Naples. The decision to diversify his activities from the mountain, into the city and on the Riviera was due to the fact that, at the time, in Courmayeur and on the Alps, hotels only opened during the summer season.
Improvements and refurbishments were carried out by family members who succeeded Mr Bertolini, and after them the Gilberti family of Milan continued to implement major works, engaging big names such as the famous architect Giò Ponti.
