Beautiful place. Really gorgeous location with mind blowing view... We were there for a friend's wedding. Food was delicious. However I did find the staff quite unflexible, and not very caring, we where asked to move our cars out of the parking at 2pm the next day because "the wedding time was up" to make space for the next customers......

Beautiful setting on the shore of Lake Annecy. Staff support excellent. Food and service lacks nothing. Lack of elevators and air conditioning only negative. About an hour's ride from Geneva airport. Rental or E150 for cab. Lots of restaurants and water sports in easy walking distance. Hiking for all levels of fitness.

Dear guest, many thanks for your kind words. Just a small explanation: yes, we do lack an elevator as we are not allowed ( nor have the place as the matter of fact!) to build one. Being a national monument has its charm, but also a lot of restrictions! The same goes for the AC: no possibility to build a... More

The hotel was booked up when we were in Talloires but we stopped by to see the beautiful old Abbey turned hotel. There is a museum in the hotel with a nice art exhibit which allows you a chance to peek into different areas of this beautiful hotel.

Dear traveller, what a pity that we were not able to welcome you in Abbaye as a guest. We would have loved to take care of you and provide you with the same feeling Mark Twain had in 1881 staying in our beautiful house. We sincerly hope that - should you come back to the region - you will choose... More

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend, while attending a friend's wedding which was organized in the premises of the Abbaye. The place is absolutely stunning, wherever you turn, you gasp at the beauty surrounding the hotel: the view of the lake, the view of the mountains or the internal garden. We were told this is the oldest hotel... More

Hello, thank you so much for your compliments. We loved the young couple and their guests.

The location of this hotel is outstanding. Beautiful view of Lake Annecy, very private and most attractive. We stayed in one of the larger, superior rooms. The room was large, however, absolutely no view. The bathroom had recently been updated and was most attractive. However, there was no shower and the claw tub was nearly unusable due to the location... More

Dear guest, thank you for having chosen Abbaye de Talloires for your stay. We are very happy that you liked the time spent in our beautiful house. I am a little surprised of "absolutely no view" room - in fact there is no room with absolutely no view in our hotel: or you have a direct lake view or you... More

Easily the most memorable hotel I have ever stayed in. From the second we pulled up in our car we were blown away.

This is an attractive hotel in a beautiful setting. We stayed in October. On Mondays and Tuesdays the restaurant and bar were closed so we could not even get a drink. There is no coffee shop so we had to eat out, which was very expensive. We ended up buying cheese, bread and pate at the local supermarket and eating... More

This was an old abbey that was built about 1600 and has been extensively refurnished over the years, I stayed here in 1979 and since then it has been greatly updated. The staff is first rate.
