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.
