Essentially, this hotel is a textbook example of what a small French hotel should be like - combines old-school cooking and hospitality with modern rooms. I stayed here with family in the "interconnecting rooms".
The rooms have good beds, powerful and hot showers, TVs with lots of channels including BBC and free wifi. They don't have aircon and are not that big. There is no lift, so ask for a low floor if you have trouble with stairs. The discounted interconnecting rooms are on the 4th floor, which was spelt out to us when we booked - they are good value if you can manage the stairs.
Food and service :
Staff are friendly and the restaurant is popular with locals. Rightly so, as the prix fixe menu for around €15 delivers four courses of high quality home-cooked food. The children's meal is the adult meal reduced, great if you're tired of giving your kids the ubiquitous steak hache / nuggets.
The hotel is in an ordinary suburban street, it's convenient for the motorway junction and has free onstreet parking. To reach the city centre, it's a 5 minute bus ride (no.3 from just across the road) or a 20 minute walk (or a 5 minute drive if you can face parking in central Annecy). Great for a driving tour, but not suitable for someone arriving by train and wanting to stay in the old town itself.
