Let me preface by saying it is a nice hotel. The staff is polite, the view is spectacular, the location charming.
However, it is not a palace by any means, at least from the inside. The staff is relaxed and not really up to par with the declared 4 star rating. The rooms have a tired and used look, the best part of the room is the bathroom. The balconies are miniscule. If you consider the price you pay for the room, there is a definite need for improvement. I do not care how amazing pool facilities are if I need to walk outside to get to them in winter/early spring, which defies the purpose of relaxing and getting warm in the sauna.
Stay for the view. Or drive by and stay elsewhere, more comfortable.;-)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A vast private park, with a unique view and a rare beauty, found on the shores of Lake Annecy, the Palace de Menthon continues its success story which began at the beginning of the last century. A mecca for visitors, it is refocusing its efforts on what it does best - combining tradition and modernity. Situated in Menthon Saint-Bernard, 10 km from Annecy and 40 km from Geneva , on the shores of the lake, the Palace de Menthon is accessible by car and also by boat, thanks to a small private port. The view is impressionable. From the gardens to the restaurants, from the bedrooms to the indoor swimming pool, one is left to indulge in the surrounding beauty all year round. Sheltered from the noise by both the mountains and the lake, Le Palace de Menthon is positioned high above a park which descends gently towards the sides of the lake. Ideal for recharging ones batteries for a day, a weekend or several days, Le Palace de Menthon has created a unique sense of welcoming its guests with warmth and friendliness. ... more less
