    Good

    Good space to sit around in and good room on lovely grounds alongside the fabulous lake.

    The bed! Very low and with 2 single duvets rather than 1 double. On request we were told there were no double duvets available in the hotel!!

    The rooms were of a high standard and the rest of the hotel was too.The food was first class and had good facilities and easy parking.

    Fabulous

    The location on the lake, the view from our room and the general luxury of the place.

    We had a balcony but it wasn't really big enough to sit out on and there were no other facilities for just lazing around. There was a public park by the hotel but there were no chairs available there either. Also, the basin was cracked in the bathroom but apart from that the bathroom facilities were good. We didn't take breakfast at the hotel because of the exorbitant charge, but we did eat in the restaurant where the food was good, but the maitre d' had a real attitude problem.

    Superb

    We loved the arrival - an imposing building at the head of Lake Annecy. The staff were delightful - nothing was too much trouble. Even though we had boooked the cheapest room available, it was comfortable and had a large and well-equipped bathroom. We used the gym - well-equipped and quiet - and liked the small touches like free bottles of Evian and a bowl of fruit for the end of your workout.We ate dinner on the Terrace, and even thought we hadn't booked, were given a table overlooking the gardens and Lake. The food was delicious, and reasonably priced, and the staff very helpful and attentive. We loved the free mini-bar!

    The only thig we found peculiar in the hotel was the fact that our double bed was made up with a double undersheet but two single duvets. When we asked if we could have a double duvet, they told us that all the duvets in the hotel were single - it was a German tradition...

    Guest rating

    Staffs at reception were not helpful. A Chinese staff had no idea about 'services'. Restaurant staffs are not trained. For a supposed to luxurious hotel, no conceirge service to help luggages. Overall, had impression that management haven't taught staffs what to do.

    Exclusive

    Our room was very comfortable with the extra touches like free soft drinks in the minibar, an international choice of TV channels and a large well appointed bathroom with seperate toilet/bidet.

    The Wi-Fi as so often didn't connect immediately. One needed an ID and Password which only became apparent after several attempts to connect followed by a visit to reception who promptly printed of the necessary codes

    Superb

    The location right at the lake embedded in a lovely park-like garden matches perfectly with the grand style of the building that had been inaugurated in 1913 and was renovated and reopened in 1990. A room with a lake view will allow to enjoy the natural beauty of the place to its fullest. Rooms that are facing to the park still offer the view on mature trees. A 20 minutes walk leads you to the old part of Annecy along the lake´s shore. The interior is stylish with references to the Art Deco phase, displaying 3 meter high ceilings. Facilities are impeccable and clean.

    Good

    I did like seeing the Annecy lake in the morning from my bedroom. Amazing view !

    I think the hotel does not deserve its 4-star ranking. Based on my own experience, the room design does not correspond to this hotel category. The bathroom was very basic, with a poor color, the toilet looked like toilets you can find in airports ... the design of the room was not convincing (no hotel spirit)

    Exclusive

    We had a beautiful room with balcony looking directly over the lake to the mountains. The hotel was very luxurious, staff were curtious and attentive. It was slightly out of town and so the walk to the old town along the lake was delightful, and yet we were in a quiet environment.
