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

Jérôme Garcia

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.

Nous avons eu un agréable séjour: bonne emplacement près du lac, personnel accueillant et chambre agréable. Plage pour nager dans le lac. Pour nous ceci était important: notre chien était bienvenu aussi et le personnel était aimable avec lui.....

L'endroit et le cadre sont magiques. Notre chambre (une suite) était spacieuse et même si le style est un peu vieillot à notre goût c'est une belle chambre. Vue magnifique.

Our lake view room was gorgeous, the breakfast was delicious and the staff were very friendly. This is the perfect spot on the lake for relaxing and activities. The spa and pool are very clean and a lovely area to spend time in, also having beautiful views of the lake.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Palace de Menthon. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities were modern and clean. The grounds of the hotel are great, situated right next to Lake Annecy. If you can I would get a lake view, it's not to be missed. I would definitely recommend the Palace to anyone visiting the Annecy area, not far from the centre of town with great lake access for a relaxing stay.

Das Personal ist freundlich und zuvorkommend. Der Wellness ist relativ klein und das Wasser im Hallenbad wie auch im Whirlpool war kühl. Es ist schade, dass es vom Hotel aus keinen direkten Zugang zum Wellnessbereich gibt. Der Barkeeper war sehr freundlich, die Preise für ein Glas Wein (12 Euro und 19 Euro) schon fast nicht mehr bezahlbar. Das Restaurant ist toll mit sehr gutem Service., und einem anständigen Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Die Aussicht auf den Lac d'Annecy ist unbezahlbar. Wir haben den Aufenthalt genossen, danke.

We walked in after a booking.com reservation made several minutes before. The reception staff member was very helpful and upgraded us from forest to lake view. Great rooms, nice quality, booked a second night and was able to retain the same upgraded room. Relaxing by the lake, nice grounds, and good service. The 'beach' wasn't such, more a lakeside access. Maybe a gradient slope in to the water would be useful? Very pleased about the hotel's accommodating attitude toward our dog.

Palace Menthon review
4.1
While we enjoyed our stay we thought a few things lacking compared to similar properties. For instance, only two pillows when we usually see four pillows. And just an uncovered box spring under the mattress. When I checked in I wasn't told much about the property. The clerk should have asked if I had ever stayed there and since I hadn't, they should have told me more or given me an information sheet. A little information to start would have been very welcome.

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.

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.
