« Between the lake and the mountains, fall for the charm of a hotel nestling in the heart of a nature reserve »

Description of the establishment

This imposing neo-Classic building overlooking Lake Annecy has all the charm of traditional spa hotels so popular with people taking the waters around 1900. This enchanting establishment features classic, very comfortable rooms with views over a landscaped garden that slopes down to the mountains and a private port. Le Viù, which enjoys a panoramic view, serves artfully displayed dishes with light, sometimes highly original flavours. From June onwards, the Palace Beach appears on the water's edge under a tent from Marrakesh. The restaurant, furnished with low benches and decorated in bright colours, invites you to explore the Maghreb.

Incredible location

Arrival by night from the lake side gives you a wonderful view of the illuminated palace. Magic. We loved the style of the hotel (entry, lobby) from the start of last century, the spa and the restaurant (great place, wonderful panoramic view on the lake). Rooms are OK - but you do not stay there to look at your room - there are so many beautiful things to look around.

Beautiful hotel, it would be difficult to find something negative to say about any aspect of this hotel. We had a fabulous 1 night stay and definitely recommend it.

We loved the hotel - we had seen it when visiting Lake Annecy before and decided to go back to celebrate my birthday.We booked a huge suite at the front with double French doors, balcony and stunning panoramic views of the lake and mountains. We loved every minute of it. The location is stunning and we went up in the mountains and to Annecy but also just really relaxed around the hotel and grounds. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good. Our only gripe is that the hotel room was tired decor-wise and really needs an update, but the bed was supremely comfy, the bathroom huge and the views just stunning. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return.

We have stayed in this hotel for several years now on our return or journey to South of France where we have a holiday home that we let out and it is always a pleasure to stay. The view is fantastic from the lake view rooms, the staff are fantastic always make us very welcome from our arrival to departure. When we first came to the hotel some 5 years ago, the breakfast was not up to standard however on our last visit 2015 the breakfast was 1st class and has improved considerably. I am a disabled person now and the staff went out of their way to ensure I had a room near to the lift, got assistance and support when needed so we can recommend this hotel highly.

4.1
When we arrived, the male receptionist was just a little more dismayed than was comfortable to us, that we had booked for only one night, taking a rather supercilious approach. That was disappointing and surely not a proper welcome, as we had driven a long way and were continuing our motor tour the following day. We enjoyed the room and the dinner, at the lakeside restaurant, where the staff were far more friendly than the receptionist. However, at breakfast, there was no staff around and only a few meagre items left available. We arrived 30 minutes before the end of breakfast time, yet no attempt was made to replenish the empty choices on the tables. Many tables were piled with dirty dishes and flies were evident buzzing around these. Very disappointing, especially given the high additional cost for breakfast. Altogether, the poor care of customers at Palace de Menthon lets down what should have been a short but very much highlight of our motor tour of France and Italy. We will return IF and ONLY IF, the hotel do something about their people's attention to the paying customer.

The connection from the website to the "reservit" reservation system and then to the hotel front desk is imperfect and in our case lost the "panoramic view" special offer. Print out your details precisely before arrival!
