“A beautiful hotel in a great location”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

A stunning location for this hotel, on the shores of Lake Annecy. We had a room where you could open the patio door onto the garden, and stroll down to the Lake shore. It was lovely. The room was modern in design and a little quirky (bath in the main room, set behind wardrobes, look at the photos on their website and you'll see). However, it was clean and very comfortable. Only complaint was that our room got very hot at night, and being on the ground floor we felt uncomfortable about leaving the patio door open when we were asleep.
Hotel staff were generally very friendly, both on the front desk and in the restaurant. The restaurant was pretty good, as well. We ate pleasantly there. The overall cost of the hotel and meals is very significant, though probably not out of proportion for what is an expensive area. You're paying for being able to walk out onto a private lawn and down to the Lake, which is lovely.
Overall: friendly, clean, interesting, modern place to stay adjacent to the Lake and on the main road (easy to find, road noise present but not very intrusive). Downsides were a room that was too hot at night, and a very significant cost, but a great place to explore Annecy, the Alps, and the Massif de Bauges from.

We really enjoyed our two days at the Clos Marcel. I traveled here with my wife and my parents.

The room was very clean and modern looking. We had a balcony with a table and chairs with a fantastic view across Lake Annecy. The bed was very comfortable. I believe the hotel was renovated in 2010, hence the new look.

We had breakfast two days there and lunch one day. As "continental" breakfasts go, this was great. Also, the lunch we had was one of the best meals I ate during my two weeks in France.

If you're looking to tour around Annecy, this is a great place to stay at a reasonable price.

I stayed in this hotel with my elderly mother, in September 2003. The hotel is in a beautiful situation and the gardens lead directly to the Lake. Most of the bedrooms have a balcony or terrace overlooking the garden and lake, and the rooms are very quiet considering there is a busy road at the front of the hotel. All rooms are en suite (we had bath with shower over, bidet, basin, separate wc). The beds are very comfortable. There is ample off-road parking, and a good restaurant at which we ate on two evenings. The only downside we found was that the breakfast (7.50 Euros per head per day), was very meagre - it consisted of a small pot of tea or coffee, two small chunks of french bread with jam and butter, and a croissant. We did not consider this good value for money, and instead made our own breakfasts which we ate on our balcony each morning. There is a guest lounge on the ground floor of the bedroom block, and a supply of board games, books etc. available. The staff were friendly, but we only found one member of staff with adequate English, which we found quite surprising. However, we managed to get by. For a good location on the Lake without being in Annecy, we would recommend this hotel.
