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....

We stayed for only one night, unfortunately, as we drove through France to Spain but what a wonderful place this is. 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 had dinner on the terrace overlooking the... More

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...

The location of La Reserve on the River Tarn means that views are of the highest order, the grounds are superb. The hotel is open only from May to October and so there is no building work in progress whilst guests are hoping for a peaceful sojourn as happens in other hotels. The character of the place is delightful and... More

Peaceful, perfect location just outside Albi. Lovely, manicured grounds. Tasteful decor and comfortable rooms. The dinner was excellent - they have a wonderful chef that served a beautifully prepared and presented meal - worthy of a Michelin Star. The icing on the cake is the lovely, attractive, friendly and helpful team. They made our stay so enjoyable. One story sums... More

We could have stayed here for longer & felt totally relaxed. Simply gorgeous flowering pots & leafy trees surround the hotel dining terrace overlooking the pool & waters edge. Truly charming stay & the best medicine to revive after a busy travel schedule.

First class all the way. Service, location, food, everything. My husband and I are very fussy but we absolutely loved it. The pool overlooking the lake is one of the many highlights. The beautifully maintained gardens was also amazing. When a helicopter landed on the lawn in front the of the lake, we thought we were dreaming. We didn't want... More

A beautiful setting with a genuinely warm welcome and a caring team. Everything was lovely, the food, the views and the condition of the hotel. The lovely owner made sure we had a plan for how to get the very best out of the region. Albi is a beautiful city and the region has many interesting medieval villages and vineyards... More
