“Friendly, comfortable, relaxing.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2011

Three story hotel, set in beautiful surroundings, just 5 minutes stroll from Lake Annecy.
Talloires, the nearest village of any size , is 30 minutes walk along a pleasant, but busy lakeside road. Infrequent lake cruises cost Euro16 for a 2 hour round trip.
The Hotel is spotlesly clean, the English speaking staff are efficient and friendly. Bedrooms are of generous size, and well appointed. HOWEVER, the hotel suffers from the lack of a lift. The access to the first & second floor bedrooms is via a narrow, curved staircase, and although assistance is readily given on arrival, visitors who have difficulty with stairs should be aware of this shortcoming.

Room Tip: Ask for first floor room with balcony.

I first stayed at the Grillons 15 years ago and loved it. This time, back with the family, it was even better. Now under the calm and assured direction of the founder's grand-daughter Aurelia, the young team of staff are completely professional. The warm welcome as soon as we entered continued throughout our five day stay. Impeccable service, attentive yet not over-bearing. Delightful food on the set dinner menu, and extensive breakfast buffet. Outdoor pool a real bonus. Rooms comfortable, with a view over l\ke Annecy. Great location too, two minutes to beach and lakeside, ten minute stroll into Talloires village, 90 minute drive to Chamonix, Mont Blanc etc.

Yet again Tony Pragnell has found a gem of a hotel. A great location on Lake Annecy, the most friendly and efficient staff you could ever want, and as for the food, it is out of this world.

Aurelie and her team, including chef/fiancee Sebastian are to be congratulated. Can't wait for a return visit

A lovely, comfortable family run hotel combining the perfect spot for relaxing and a centre for sight-seeing. Situated a five minute walk from the edge of Lake Annecy, the hotel has views of the lake, the mountains, as well as its own garden, outside seating area and lovely pool with loungers.The rooms were comfortable and very clean,the food was excellent and the service was friendly and informal. Recommended; the fifteen minute walk into the charming lakeside village of Talloires. In late September the weather was gorgeous

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in august and had a wonderful time. The pool and pool area were excellent, with beach towels provided. Very friendly and helpful staff, a short walk from the lake. Food was first class and excellent value. One minor issue was some road noise could be heard in our room.

Fantastic Hotel. My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a four night break in August with half-board. We had a superb room with excellent views of both the Lake and the surrounding mountains. The evening meal was of a very good standard with all 4 courses being superb, excellent cheese board. Breakfast is also very good, on our last day my wife wanted croissants which had run out, the chef was only too happy to bake fresh croissants, nice touch.

Good location - walkable to the local town of Talloires and close to beaches (grassed beaches). Only a short bus ride/drive to Anneccy, the biggest town nearby with lots to see and do.

We would highly recommend this hotel and look foward to our next visit.
