I loved everything about this hotel. The setting on the lake is superb...the views magnificent. It has beaches on either side and a small, very-pretty park/garden (open to the public) between the hotel and the lake. Our room (616) was large and lovely...fresh and clean...great beds, great linens. I loved the large counter work space, plenty of room for two,... More

Great hotel, wonderful views and right on the lake. Tons of great restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Felt recently renovated with really modern bathrooms. I was pleasantly surprised at how affordable it was based on the service, location, and quality. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip.

We just returned from visiting Annecy. This hotel was one of the most magnificent I have ever seen. The views were absolutely stunning from our room! The room and bathroom look like they have recently been remodeled and are beautiful and very quiet. We had a great night's sleep every night. The Wi-Fi was fast and the Housekeeping Service took...

This is a lovely 5 star hotel except there is an adjacent disco that plays loud thumping music from 7:00 to 4:00am during the summer months. Such a shame because the hotel and staff are excellent and the location delightful, except for this invading music. Bedrooms are good with little balconies overlooking the lake.

I would like to agree with the most of the reviews about the views of the lake and the town; it is such a lovely place for relaxing.

This hotel has one of the most stunning views that anyone can experience. The room is also very well decorated and equipped. I would strongly recommend a room facing the lake. Sitting on the terrace having your drink while looking at the lake will make you feel like being in a paradise on earth! Don't forget to aldo check out... More

We booked a room with lake view and everything was perfect from beginning to end. Breakfast was also a big highlight. We did not have the chance to dine at the restaurant "La Voile" but we will definitely try in the near future. In summary, it is not a cheap hotel but the high level service and the great location...
