On the upside: nice room with balcony, stylish setting and an incredible gourmet restaurant as well as friendly staff. Easy parking as well. On the downside, checking in was a bit hectic, also because the lobby is surprisingly small for such a hotel. Check in as from 16h is quite late by the way. Town centre is a 30m walk... More

Beautiful hotel in an unbelievable setting in a magical town. Grande palatial building, on one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe. Service, staff, location are perfect. Breakfast was great. Have access to Imperial Plage for sunbathing, swimming, and water activities including water slides. Highly recommend this hotel.

Great menu du jour, and the menu enfant is great value topped off by an all out assault on the "candy cart". Put it this way the cycle home to Veyrier was like a time trial stage of the TDF! Good choice of mains for the grown ups and an adequate wine list with a few quality local wines available.... More

We thought we were booking a grand hotel right by the lake. When we got there, we saw that the hotel does not even have a lake front area. It is in front of a public park by the lake. They gave us passes to their beach park (open to public) which was extremely crowded. We could not find anywhere... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments.

Have visited the City on a number of occasions, typically staying with friends, this time needed a hotel for a family break and had heard good things about the hotel. Building is Brighton seafront with a sharp modern interior at ground level, rooms spacious and very good lighting. Staff were really helpful and the space immaculately clean on arrival and... More

Great hotel, great town, -- it's like you're in a dream. We've never seen any town so beautiful! The hotel is the best-- the food was spectacular-- and the buffet dessert-- with those chocolate blueberry pops ( I know it sounds weird, but they were out of this world!)

We stayed here for 4 nights whilst cycling in the area. The hotel is set in a beautiful old building on the banks of Lac Annecy and has a lovely Rose garden as well. Rooms are of a high standard, air conditioned, with tea and coffee making, a mini bar and free wifi. Furnishings are modern but set within the... More

A beautiful, classic and majestic property overlooking a spectacular lake and mountains under a half hour's drive from Geneva, Switzerland. Nice public spaces, but one feels cramped as there's not much of it in the main lobby. Spectacular gardens in the rear of the hotel. Within 20 minutes walking distance to the historic town, a fabulous walk along the lake.... More
