Really excellent hotel. Excellent service with very friendly and helpful staff. Superb location on the shore of the lake. Lovely view from the room (air-conditioned) and balcony. Great restaurant - superb buffet breakfast choice and nothing better than having it al fresco. Swimming pool perfect, plenty of sunbeds. We were on the L'Echappée Belle package - 6 nights with all...

Great place ! Superb staff! This hotel is located "les pieds dans l'eau" in Talloires. Superb setting. The staff is great, a family run business with all the benifits that come with it. The Food is great although small dishes are not on the menu. There are plenty of small restaurants in the immediate proximity that cater small dishes.

Our second visit to Le Cottage and we were not disappointed. Elegant ambiance, quality accommodation, excellent cuisine etc., but rather expensive, as you would expect. Fantastic location on the shores of Lake Annecy, so plenty of opportunity for mini cruises around the Lake or just down to Annecy - a nice town, with plenty to see, numerous cafés, restaurants etc....

We arrived and were taken to our room which was on the 2nd floor of the Spa Cottage. It had a lovely view of the lake, however, we were disappointed as our room was not reflective of the pictures advertised on their website. This room needs refurbishing, although it was clean, it was looking tired! Bathroom had 2 lights not... More

We went there to celebrate my grandmother's birthday. The location is excellent, with a beautiful terrace just by the lake. The food was also very good though portions are really small and I was still a little hungry even after the big plate of cheese I had for desert. The restaurant was pretty empty when we went and there was... More

This hotel is a wonderful charming establishment, we stayed for a 21st birthday celebration as a family and it was just perfect. The hotel staff went out of their way to ensure everything was amazing. A very memorable stay.

OK, let me get my only moan out of the way, the shower over the bath was worse than useless and you couldn't use it without getting water over the edge of the bath. BUT From our welcome to leaving the staff were efficient, helpful and charming without being over the top. Our room on the first floor had a... More

Have just spent 4 nights at this charming hotel. Our room was very well appointed with a comfortable super kingsize bed, air conditioning and a good modern shower room with everything one might need, towelling gowns and slippers, hairdryer, good quality toiletries etc. We were staying during the recent heatwave and all meals were taken on the beautiful lakeside terrace,...

We were so pleased that we chose this hotel for our week in Talloires as we had considered and rejected the more well known one also on the Lakeside. We particularly liked the fact that the hotel was small and intimate. Everything about this hotel was above our expectations - it was listed as a four star hotel but we... More
