Located our hotel Abbaye de Talloires. Gave car keys to porter so he could park the car as carpark full and easier for him to park it. Easy check in. Our room (55) on 2nd floor - NO elevator because it is historic building. Luckily Baptiste (pronounced BATISTE) took our suitcases up. Beautiful room overlooking Lake Annecy. Large bathroom. Lots of cupboard space. Free wifi. Down to lunch in garden beside the lake. Food ok but nothing to write home about. OK garden salad, ok chicken salad, ok strawberries and pretty good icecream with berries for me. Dinner set up outside in garden. Beautiful setting, however, we were sat at table in the sun and almost melted. Requested a change of table to shade. Staff appeared harassed and not in control. Perfunctory attention. Waited longer than 1 hour before our starter arrived. Description on menu was "leek tatin". It came out as 1 inch slices of leek in a circle with a thin small sliver of some kind of unidentifiable lid - did not look like pastry - looked like a potato crisp topped with deep fried shredded leeks. Truly AWFUL. Leek overload. No finesse to the dish whatsoever. Our red mullet dish was very good. Red mullet with olive tapenade, roasted small eggplants and thin watery mushroom ravioli. Dish was well conceived but the ravioli and tapenade were lacking in finesse. Decided to cut our losses and not order dessert. Waitress gave us petit fours which were excellent. Staff were stretched. Food was slow. Leek tarts were awful. No love in this restaurant. I would not return to this hotel.
We were a group of 6 Aussie travellers wanting a few days of R & R after a hectic 12 days in Sicily....wow...what a brilliant location. The hotel was magnificent...very rustic with floor boards 8" wide....and very Creaky ...We opted for a lake view, which was beautiful while the other 2 couples settled for the garden view...well worth the extra. We found a good restaurant in the small village the 1st night and then went into the main city for the 2nd. There was also a small supermarket in the village selling well priced beer and wine. What a perfect place for a destination wedding
We just loved it! The Abbaye is perfectly set on Lake Anncey with beautiful private gardens. Irs perfectly designed, mixing old and modern. We stayed in room 30 with lake view. Comfy bed, mini bar, slippers... etc. We ate in the hotels restaurant...Excellent menu and wine. Breakfast also very healthy and fresh buffet. Friendly staff. Will definately stay here again. see more of my travels on evelinerossi.com
For EUR 155 / night excluding breakfast (EUR 25 / person / night) i expect service and a quiet night. What i got was a terrible loud night with loud sound below my room, so i was not able to sleep before 2.30 am. In the following morning no breakfast available while the last morning breakfat was available for a price of EUR 25 / person. While i appreciate the location, the service and the standard are below expectations. So there are restaurants and hopefully hotels as well in the area that fullfill better customer expectations. Coffee, espresso, cappuccino: terrible. Breakfast: ok Garden beautiful Rooms not state of the art.
We stayed in the hotel for a couple of days and I am still impressed by the beauty of this house, its setting and the friendliness of the staff. Our room was rather small, but we knew that we are coming in to historical venue. Nevertheless it was newly refurbished with taste and had all we needed. The view to the lake was just amazing, we could not get enough of it. Breakfast buffet was very rich, original and tasty and the service was perfect. We also very much enjoyed the restaurant; The staff, all over we went, was helpful and very friendly. The spa is small, but cosy and the treatments are great. We will definetely come back if we come to this beautiful region again.
Spent 2 nights, three days at this charming lakeside hotel. As its name suggests it was a former abbey but has been a hotel for many years. Had a room overlooking Lake Annecy and even though the weather wasn't great for the first couple of days you can't get away from the fact that the view is picture-postcard beautiful. You are surrounded by mountains and this time of year everything is lush and green. Went with 4 friends for a cycling holiday and the hotel and surroundings were just perfect. The hotel staff were very accommodating and caring and didn't seem to have a problem with us walking through the hotel in Lycra! If you are cyclist this area is great. The lake has a cycle track all the way around it (over 40k) and the mountains around over some challenging climbs.
Perfect combination of breathtaking nature, high-quality service and mid-centuries charm. Food was outstanding, staff - highly supportive. We had a fireplace in our conference room - go for it if you are looking for a cozy place
We spent 4 nights at the Abbaye for a wedding and it was wonderful! The hotel is beautiful, the views are AMAZING and the staff were lovely throughout - definitely get a room over looking the lake. The food at the hotel was excellent and there's a lovely little Jacuzzi up on the top floor. I would stay here again and definitely recommend it.
The place is so beautiful and quite. Total relaxation here. The hotel is old , if you appreciate, and beautiful. What it comes with old is you can hear next door's alarms, the other person open the door you though your door is been opened. If you want to have fights with your honey you need to second thought of it. Peaceful will definitely be achieved.
Wow, perfect lakeside setting with Lido sunbeds to take in the stunning views. A very comprehensive wine cellar with wonderfully informative Sommellier. Full five star service right from the front gate through the dining room to the very luxurious bedrooms. We attended a wedding in Sept, held in the gardens , what a most incredible setting with the backdrop of the mountains with the para-gliders swirling down with their multicoloured wings. The chefs picking and cutting the vegetables from the garden for the evening feast served in a canvas pavillion attached to the side of the 16 Century Abbaye building. A favourite holiday venue of Mark Twain, Winston Churchill and many others. Nothing was too much trouble for staff, who went out of their way to make you feel as if you lived there all the time. You can catch a local ferry across the lake to Annecy from the jetty just at the hotel gate. This venue is a complete switch off, you park the car and can walk around the village to a selection of some lovely local hostelies. Hotel has the full range of first class facilities, Spa, boat rental etc,etc. Well worth a visit and once you been once you'll be back time and time again.
