Amazing location: right on the lake with a lovely promenade perfect for a calming stroll or jog. Old Town is just a ten-minute stroll away as well. I really liked everything about this hotel: service was great, my room was huge with an amazing view of Lake Annecy, food was good; however, the only thing that I disapprove of is... More

Very impressive location of the hotel. Right beside the lake. Great Casino and also decent night life. Good outdoor park next door. Can improve on their breakfast though with limited options everyday unchanged..

I stayed here for a business trip and brought my family. The conference facilities were excellent, first class. The audio worked very well, the room was comfortable and the projection was high def. Catering was ok. The patisserie i thought would be great being in france but was average. Lunch and dinner were great. The rooms are quite dated, with... More

First class hotel in an absolutely magnificent setting. You will not forget the lake view if you are fortunate enough to have a room on that side. Dining on the terrace a magnificent experience.

Although this hotel shares it's building with a congress centre and casino, once inside you get the benefit of a relatively modern refurb. We had a corner room with views over the lake. Everything functional. Mile long walk into town was very pleasant.

The location of the hotel is beautiful. The grounds and the view of the lake is just perfect. It is about 15 to 20 minutes walk from Annecy, and the leisure walk is a nice break from all the tourists from town. The decor is art deco, which is interesting. Staff were all very friendly. Breakfast was a little pricy... More

The best thing about this hotel is it's location at the head of the lake. We had a room overlooking the beautiful grounds and Lake Annecy. Couldn't have been nicer. A pleasant 15 minute walk Into town along the water's edge through lovely paths. The hotel itself Is lovely, although perhaps a little tired and pricey for what you get.... More

This hotel is so beautiful on the outside, and sits majestically on the lake. The room was a nice size and the balcony was great for letting in a breeze and looking out over the city. Staff were helpful in taking care of little things we needed, and helping to make transportation arrangements. We stayed there on a business trip,... More

we stayed one night, and are generally happy. Service is good, but there are no concierge and no baggage handler (and, of course, no valet parking). The entrance driveway is easely clogged-up by all the cars trying to unload the luggage as close as possible to the door; once this is done, fend for yourself...For an hotel of this category,...
