We chose to holiday in or near Annecy since it is our home town's twin town in France. We took the trouble to drive there and arrived in dreadful weather but the hotel soon brightened our view of things. Exceptionally well run and with excellent food, Hotel Grilliions became a real home from home and a joy to return to... More

The best thing about this hotel are the friendly staff and restaurant. There is a set 4 course meal each night which we found to be very good. For children, the set menu did not always work for our kids but we were able to request alternative from the kitchen. Best to put your requests in morning once you have... More

This is the best hotel that I have ever stayed in and all because of its location and its fantastic owners and staff. The food prepared by chef owner Sebastian was consistently marvelous, and his wife Aurelie managed front of house seemingly effortlessly and always with a smile. Ophélie on reception, was helpful and courteous as were all of the... More

I stayed in Les Grillons with my wife and two young sons for three nights in August 2014. The hotel is situated across the road from Lake Annecy about 5 minutes drive from the small village of Talloires and about half an hour drive from Annecy. It is run by a young couple - she runs front of house and... More

this is a fantastic hotel - the first French one Ive ever stayed in that doesnt have bidets - but it does have separate loos from the en suite bathrooms which is a real bonus when you have timelines to beat in the morning! Pretty much all the rooms have lake views and there are no rooms at the back... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a group and I can only reiterate what all the other reviewers have said, that this is a really lovely hotel, probably the best we have ever stayed at. Although we are in our eighties (just), we did not find the staircase a problem. Had Les Grillons a lift, then it would... More

This is a super hotel. The staff could not do enough to help with anything - really went out of their way to assist. The food is FANTASTIC. Pleasant gardens and lovely swimming pool. Angon is about 1 l/2 miles from Talloires and has pleasant walks. Would recommend you try this. (one small warning, at present no lift, but the... More

First class attention, beautifully kept gardens & pool area. The rooms are tidy & clean, some with pool view & balcony or views of garden & pool. The staff are brilliant, caring & so attentative, refreshing to find that quality of service. Our 3rd sojourn, and for sure not our last! Richard & Kirsten

My family spent a week at this hotel after reading the positive reviews here and we weren't disappointed. Fantastic location right by the lake. Cycle paths running alongside and a private beach opposite that you got free entry to with hotel vouchers. Endless things to do - we swam, paraglided, cycled, climbed mountains and generally ate too much. We stayed... More

Les Grillons measured up to all the favorable reviews upon which we based our stay: lovely location and grounds, fine swimming in Lake Annecy across the road and in the roomy pool, decent accomodations (athough a coffee maker would make a good addition), fine meals as touted, and the hosts are most helpful and welcoming. However, there is no lift,... More
