Arrived to find that superior room with lake view booked and already payed for was not available for three days. Allocated a standard room with inadequate clothes hanging cupboard and no drawers at all for clothes storage. Good view of carpark but not of lake!No wash basin in toilet One therefore had to pass through bedroom to newly fitted bathroom to wash hands. Beaware that the hotel is an ancient building and therefore the rooms differ in sizes. There is no lift which may prove a problem for those with reduced mobility. Most guests seemed to be on half board. For four consecutive days in the restaurant exactly the same Menu du Jour with no choice was offered.In fairness one could choose from the fairly short carte menu which was well cooked and presented. A charming sommelier an impressive but expensive wine list. - but this is a four star hotelin an expensive region. We would certainly not return.

Room Tip: Rooms vary in size and outlook. Becertain to get what you have payed for. There are other restaurants nearby-consider bed /breakfast

Dear Mr and Mrs C-P,

Once again thank you for having chosen Abbaye for your stay and thank you for sharing your opinion with other travellers although it is not very flattering for us. The critics are just as important as the positive feed back, as we can improve and correct the things we've done not well enough.
Nevertheless I would like to clear some points.
Yes, a mistake was done at your booking. We have immediately apologized and have tried to correct it as much as possible already during your stay. These errors are so seldom in our hotel that you see I obviously know whom I am addressing myself to right now.
You have booked a superior garden room with the side lake view from the balcony; we have only few superior direct lake view rooms, so we never contract them. Also the classic garden room you stayed in for first three days has indeed the parking below but very beautiful garden, mountains and a side lake view from the balcony. This nice room is normally not rented for the long stays as there is too little storage room for clothes, but as you know we have put immediately a commode with drawers to help you out.
We are a historical monument and our surfaces are strictly limited. It is true that there are no wash basins in the toilets and unfortunately you really had to pass through the room to go to wash your hands, but here we did not have any other solution if we wanted the toilets separated from the bathroom.
Concerning the restaurant, most of our guests are not on half board contrary of what you could thought; the Inspiration Menu is newly created every week and it is not meant as a half board menu. The Chef in fact wanted to leave also to our half board guests a free choice of à la carte dining. Though I have took notice of your remark and we have immediately changed the system and introduced a real half board menu changing every day with the choice of à la carte too if wished.
I am always surprised reading of how expensive our wines are: we have so many great wins starting from 25 to 30€, funny that everybody looks only at the ones over 100€ and 1000€ that are in fact impressive as our whole wine list is. But I am glad that Charly, our wine waiter, could help you in your choice.
Finally I would like to stress that you should see ( if you haven’t already!) with your tour operator for the difference of value between the two rooms, we have obviously arranged for refunding you as in Abbaye everybody pays only what they have actually had.
We would love to have you back to show you that this experience was a real exception.
Very best regards from finally sunny Talloires
D. Kirchner
General Manager

This Hotel has lots to praise and little to criticise.

Everything was up to expectations and we were priviledged to be given a Tour of their extensive wine cellar and we were shown the Room which has remained virtually unchanged for hundreds of years. The room is available to those who are prepared to pay the price but it is not generally used but it is nevertheless a fascinating piece of History.

This Hotel is not cheap but the prices are in keeping with the standards so i would have no hesitation in saying that you will not be dissapointed if you stay.

Great. Awesome location next to the lake, easy to find with the GPS,
Staff super friendly and very attentive, food quality is great and decent value for a upmarket hotel. Wine list is so so long and so so expensive.
Rooms are great a mix of old abbey features and modern facilities. great for couples, even better for a few couple together - cant wait to go back
Upstairs hot tub and steam room, and the scenery is fantastic

A truly charming hotel but the optional connecting door leaked noise from next door - not something you would expect of a hotel in this price range.
