We stayed here recently for the wedding of some friends. We hadn't been to the Abbey for years, and what a pleasant surprise greeted us on this visit. It looks as though some serious updating has been going on. The rooms aren't huge but they are very comfortable. Ours overlooked a pool and courtyard. Very pretty. This would be a... More

We love the Abbey and have stayed here three years in a row. The staff is friendly, the grounds are pretty and the proximity to the lake is great for renting wave runners or walking around the lake. My biggest complaint is the thin walls. We can hear our neighbors as if they are in the room with us. Absolutely... More

My daughter and I did a "back to school" overnight at the Abbey last week. This is my favorite hotel in the Lake Geneva area, mostly because of the Avani Spa. Truthfully, I've had much better manicures for less than $50, but being able to use the spa is the reason we go. I can't say everyone working there was... More

This is our 3rd or 4th summer staying at the Abbey. There is a pool area for the kids. They played in the water for four hours! The office manager Jean was especially professional and helpful. It's also really nice to sit out on the balcony. Want to try the spa in the future. Rooms could use an update. All... More

My wife and I stayed at the Abby for a weekend getaway and rented a boat slip and brought our boat. It was really nice to pull it up to the slip after being out on the sandbar all day and go straight up to our room. The slip, parking, and launch fee @ $75 is kind of high but... More

I was married about a month ago and, while my reception was at another venue, I booked a block of rooms at the Abbey. My new husband and I also stayed there the night of our wedding. They could not have been more helpful, professional and kind with their services for our wedding! Claire took excellent care of us in... More

Some friends told us about the Abbey when we asked them about a place to go to get away. The Abbey is a very large establishment and it seems that there are a lot of families that go there regularly--as one would go to their lake house during the summer. Lots of kids! The layout of the hotel was very... More

We went here for a friend's wedding and stayed 4 nights. I can't begin to say how disappointing the food there was- it was just terrible for what is supposedly an upmarket resort. i guess all the guests eat out if they can. The facilities are good, but there were no kids activities on in the mornings- although it said... More

We just returned from the Abbey Resort. We have been to Lake Geneva on several occasions and will not be back to this particular hotel. We were first impressed at the beautiful grounds of the resort. Our room seemed to be very clean and impressive. We had a room facing the lake. We were in a room a few minutes... More

We had such a nice time at the Abbey. We had two rooms on the pool side. We got there about 3 hours before check-in, but we were able to get into one room right away, and by the time we finshed lunch, the other room was ready. It is an older resort, but it is very well maintained. The... More
