This little gem of a hotel set in stunning grounds with a lovely pool and peaceful setting on the banks of the River Tarn. The family who run this could not have been more helpful and polite and did everything they could to make our stay memorable. The area is fantastic. Albi is truly stunning and we drove all around...

Just out of the beautiful city of Albi, on the Tarn, stands La Reserve, one of the Relais & Chateaux hotels. In its extensive grounds right by the river, the setting is idyllic and so is the hotel. Nothing it too much for Mme Hijosa-Rieux and her staff; the rooms are of good size and comfortably furnished, though it was... More

We always wanted to visit Albi and choosing Hotel La Reserve for our stay added something special to our weekend. Place is lovely and peaceful. There was everything in the room, what we needed for a comfortable stay. Thanks to the beautiful weather we could enjoy dinner on the patio and the service was excellent. I advice everyone to try...

Spent three nights here recently and it was even better than hoped. Wonderful location, great service and excellent dining, presided over by a charming and helpful manager. You are a couple of miles outside Albi, but most seemed to dine at the hotel in the evening, and that was no hardship Just excellent

An amazing place to stay, situated on the river Tarn in Albi, this hotel is superb, we had a room with balcony overlooking the river & swimming pool. Delightful room with luxurious linen & toiletries. Swimming has cabanas, loungers all discreetly placed around the pool and the pool itself was very very nice. Restaurant can only be described as gourmet,... More

It is difficult to encapsulate the atmosphere that pervades the stunning setting of La Reserve. Situated above the banks of the Tarn just outside Albi, we were immediately struck by the peace and tranquility of the setting and the understated, welcoming professionalism of all the staff.It is a long time since we have enjoyed such wonderful cuisine, a delicious dinner...

We just left hotel La Reserve of Albi, promising ourselves that we would come back. The hotel truly delivers on its promise of 5-star luxury, accommodating all your wishes with a smile. We took a dive at the large pool at sunset, enjoyed superb dinner and wonderful breakfast, both on the terrace. The staff at the hotel are extremely nice,... More

After many hours driving how delighted we were to enter this oasis of calm, the elegance and sophistication were only surpassed by the fabulous gastronomic delights that awaited us at dinner. The staff were a delight, service was brilliant but completely unobtrusive. The Chef, Ringo Schulz has a wonderful magic touch, the food was delicious, exciting, fresh and beautifully presented....

The staff were very friendly, spoke good English and we every bit 5 star professional. The room was delightful and the setting on the banks of the river Tarn is stunning.

We have just spent 4 weeks travelling through France staying at some good hotels and this was the only let down. Unless you book a suite the bedrooms are not large and very close together in the corridor so we were disturbed on 2 nights out of 4 by other guests. Also the hotel takes in groups which we didn't...
