4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

This hotel sits in a majestic setting overlooking the lake, with spectacular views from our room! The grounds are impeccable, and includes convenient parking, though the guest drop-off is a bit intimidating due to the narrow drive. The main restaurant is one of the most memorable restaurants we have ever dined at. It is a bit of a walk from the main building, but well worth it. It is set in a sturdy tent, with exquisite, Moroccan decor. The music was provided by a live DJ playing Euro / ambient music. We complimented the DJ and he volunteered to mix a cd for us! The food was just as amazing.

This hotel is a bit of a drive from the city center, but you can't beat the views along the way. It's a nice drive to circle the lake, with another great restaurant just across the water with nice outdoor seating and the best potato dish I've ever had (a French custom dish, I was told, similar to au gratin). My only reservation from assigning 5 stars is because the decor throughout the hotel is quite dated and in strong need of an overall updating. However, the rest made up for that. And, a complimentary daily breakfast is always a perk!

Room Tip: You want a lake view! We had a corner room with spectacular views of the mountains out our side win...

Stayed there two nights with my girlfriend and it worth the money...
Haven't tried the restaurant but rooms are really nice with great view on the beautiful lake of Annecy!
The bartender was really friendly as the manager we met!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony with view on the lake

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

Stayed here for 3 nights in early October. We were lucky with the weather which was perfect, and we were even able to swim in the lake. Views tremendous, scenery stunning: lake, mountains, hang gliders. The room was nice, a little old fashioned (but if you want a hotel with i-pod docking station, maybe you aren't in the right place) but nice bathroom and good wardrobe space. View onto the lake, lovely but a bit noisy from other guests on the terrace - could be noisy if they have a conference going. Swimming pool - one of the best I have ever seen in a hotel, beautiful design, clean, large enough for a proper swim. As per a previous review, only downside of that is that you have to go outside to get to it, so in the rain or snow you might be put off. We didn't eat evening meals in the restaurant but breakfast was well above average - eggs, cold meats & cheese, excellent fruit salad. Room cleaning was a little off, toiletries didn't get replaced, but that's a minor complaint. If you want active night life, this hotel is too far from Annecy to walk, but fine for those looking for peace and quiet.

Room Tip: Lake views wonderful, take one of the higher rooms to reduce the noise if the hotel is busy

Beautiful location and building, incredible view and nice restaurant. However, service is disastrous. Totally understaff and the few employees have not the right skills. Breakfast: tables not ready, Food limited and so so, and on top of it ey lost our special milk... Rooms: nothing close properly (curtains or shutters). Pool: warm but had to go outside to get in again, under the rain. Staff is unfriendly and always put the blame on you. At more than 300 euros the niight, it s a joke.

This hotel is 5 Star in every way. Service was amazing. Grounds are stunning. Facilities and food are excellent. We spent 3 nights here and loved every minute of it. Cannot recommend it enough.

We will definitely be back.

A very dated but comfortable hotel, with excellent breakfast and stunning position on the Lake Annecy shore
Good facilities,indoor pool, lovely gardens, but, the summer restaurant was a bit of a joke; in a tent by the water's edge, but food mediocre to awful.
We ate at Talloires second night.
Next to no service ,although reception staff were polite and efficient.
An enormous turn of the century building seemingly out of place in it's setting.
didn't really seem French!
