I was fortunate to stay here as part of a business trip. I'd love to return with my wife, but it is expensive. The hotel has a great location but the rooms do need updating which is starting in October 2013. I expect the hotel will continue to be excellent with the new rooms.

In life there is rarely such a thing as perfection and we wait for things to go wrong just to prove the hypothesis. But now and again a sublime moment lifts the work-weary spirit and balances out life's challenges, restoring hope and creating a lasting memory to carry us through the next battle. Such was a recent family stay at... More

Well the Royal is a great hotel with absolutely fantastic views and great staff. However it is undergoing a makeover and your stay will really be determined by the room you are allocated. We had 3 nights in room 137 and whilst its a truly big room it has so soul, no coffee or tea making facilities and no blind... More

The wife and I stayed there on for our honeymoon and there is nothing wrong I could say about this hotel ! We were treated like Royalty from the moment we stepped out of the car until we left to the airport. The staff was so friendly and helpful, this is what you expect when you go to french hotel,...

As the flagship hotel of the Evian Resort, the Royal has a lot to live up to, and during my stay there in July 2013 with my family it did the job - and then some. Reception was ultra-friendly, rooms were huge, and the hotel and its grounds were an absolute pleasure to wander around in. There were hidden corners,... More

Given that this is a five-star hotel, I was disappointed to see stains on the carpets, both in our room and the corridor. Also, the mattress was hard and the blanket not thick enough. I had to request an extra blanket, which took 30 minutes to come. The breakfast area is beautiful, particularly outside, but the food mediocre; I've been... More
