I celebrated one of my birthdays at the Abbaye 26 years ago with a group of friends,and the hotel hasn't changed much. Our room this time around needed a little upgrading. But part of the charm of this hotel is that it is a very old abbey, and something that you would have a tough time finding in the US.... More

This hotel is an old Abbey in an amazing location on Lake Annecy with amazing 360 degree views. We had an equally amazing bedroom on a corner with views over the lake as well as the mountains. There is seating in the garden and on the pomade on the lakeside with suitable seating. There is a facility to swim in... More

It's difficult to imagine that anyone could not have a wonderful time at this hotel, a Parador-style converted abbey which dominates the lovely bay of Talloires, 12km from Annecy. Everything about the hotel delights, from the service and welcome, the beautiful rooms (of which there are only 33), the cafe and restaurant and the stunning setting on the edge of... More

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.

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

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
