This is a very nice hotel in a superb location. The staff is very attentive, breakfast first class and the two nights we had dinner at the hotel's restaurant - top notch. There are also some other very nice restaurants in the area, so this is a good base for culinary trip. Our room had a balcony facing the lake,... More

From the moment we arrived we felt very welcomed by the friendly and efficient staff. The location is wow, right on the shore of Lake Annecy at Talloires with beautiful views of the mountains. You need a car to get here from Annecy but the lakeside drive is lovely, passing through small and charming villages. When you finally turn off... More

What a view we had from our first floor hotel room, with balcony, overlooking the lake and mountains in this beautiful little village near Annecy du Lac! Nestled in a little inlet of the lake, the hotel is one of a few which are on the lake's edge. separated therefrom only by a non-busy road - pedestrians are the main... More

Stayed with a group of people. Some of the rooms are more updated than others and some have balconies while others don't. My room was impeccably clean and surprisingly quiet being off the main corridor but I would've preferred a more modern room. We had breakfast and lunch almost every day at the hotel; breakfast was a buffet while lunch... More

This is a real beauty of a spot, and the hotel is in the prime position. Sunrise kisses the mountains across the lake, while sunset kisses the hotel as the sun sets over the mountains. Everything about this hotel is A1. The food, the accommodation, and the service are all superb. A wonderful place for two people to relax and... More

Have stayed here multiple times. Simply fabulous in all regards. Owners and staff exceptionally helpful and accommodating. Rooms are modern, up to date, and each room is unique. Breakfast buffet offers wide range of options. Evening meals simply superb. (Staff has fine command of English.) A gem of a hotel.

We really enjoyed our five night stay at this lovely hôtel on the shores of Lake Annecy. The staff were friendly and helpful. We live in France so speak French but we could tell that they all spoke very good English. Our room was in one of the cottages rather than the main house. It had a beautiful view over... More

Talloires is very beautiful town, and Le Cottage Bise has a lovely location on the lake (as do the other two high end hotels). I booked one of the less expensive rooms and was a little worried by some of the comments on TripAdvisor. We were very pleasantly surprised, however, by our room. The garden room had a beautiful mountain... More

We spent 3 nights at this hotel which is delightfully located by the lake in the village of Talloires. Our room was in one of the villas in the hotel grounds, a short walk from the main building. It offered a shady terrace with a glimpse of the lake. The room was well-appointed and the bed was very comfortable. My... More

Just returned from a 10 night stay on a half board package with Inghams and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. We were fortunate to be given a room in the main building which makes it easier going to breakfast and dinner if it's raining as the other accommodation is in the grounds. The room we had was...
