“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2008

Stayed in the hotel le lac as part of our honeymoon, and was very pleased that we chose this hotel.
The hotel is has a great location, although not on the lake front like the posher hotels, it was a pleasant minute walk to the waterfront, and our room had a great lake view, which you do have to pay extra for.
The staff were extremely helpful, the hotel was very clean and very pretty, i think a lot of work went into keeping the communal areas pristine.
Our room was large and also very clean but my only gripe was that it was not as pristine as the communal areas, the doors, shutters and skirting boards in the room looked like they needed sanding and painting, I am maybe being a bit critical as somehow they added to the classic French effect of the room.
The Talloire card, is a godsend, that this and some of the other hotels supply in the village, i think the card alone justifies the premium for staying in talloire, and we made great use of it.
Overall i would certainly recommend this hotel.

The hotel was run down when we visited in August 2006. The rooms were in need of decoration and lacked air conditioning. The hotel workers could be heard making a great amount of noise from our hotel room, late in to the night. this may have explained the poor level of cleaning that was found in the rooms. Luckily I did not have to eat meals in the restaurant as the menu looked over priced for what food was offered, although could not comment on the quality.

Although, the area was lovely. the lake was great for relaxing around, and could hire a rowing boat on the lake. there was a number of very nice looking hotels in the area, so might be worth spending the extra money.

  • Liked — closish to the lake
  • Disliked — lack of consideration for guests

We have just returned from Talloires and found the Le Lac a pleasant place to stay. For a 3* in this area of France the rates were reasonable. True the rooms were a little dated, however, the beds were very comfortable, the rooms were very clean, and the bathroom, with separate wc, spacious and again very clean. The menu was limited to 2 choices per course, but there were 4 courses and everything was nicely cooked and presented and there was a good buffet breakfast. Whilst we were there the gravel was kept raked clear of leaves and the pool was cleaned.
Staff were always pleasant and curteous and did everything to make our holiday enjoyable.

Stayed at this hotel at the end of August. Our room wa pleasant enough but it looked a bit shabby. the bathroom definitely needed refurbishment and we had problems with the lights which kept flickering. The public rooms at the hotel also looked dated and a bit tatty. Also the swimming pool and garden which could have done with some attention (removing dead leaves, clearing the grass growing around the outside of the pool etc.)The meal in the restaurant in the evening was poor - but expensive! Worst of all was a very loud party of young people who partied in the room next to ours until 2 am! The hotel reception was not prepared to do anything about this, or to move us to a quieter room so we checked out after one night. We moved the Le Cottage which was fabulous! I would not recommend this hotel!

Like the previous reviewer, I agree that Talloires is a beautiful location for a holiday. Magnicifent scenery on the shores of Lake Annecy. Having just spent some time in the Hilton in Geneva, Hotel Le Lac was a sharp contrast in terms of the quality of the room and the service: and not much cheaper than the the former. I was disappointed that there was no a la carte menu, only a variable fixed price menu, which meant we had to go out every evening for a meal. Overall, the hotel was comfortable, if jaded in places. The (unsupervised) pool was lovely. Hotels in Talloires are generally overpriced and this was among the cheapest; but value for money? The poor menu, rooms in need of redecoration and the lack of air conditioning in 40degC + would make me reluctant to return to this otherwise attractively located hotel.

Talloires is the most lovely resort I have been to ( and Ive been to a good few ) MAGICAL

The lake is superb with excellent range of activites and the area beautiful. Talloires is a hamlet so if you like lots of shops and nightlife this is not for you.

The hotel le lac is a good 3 star and is a good value for money base for the area as there is a big price difference between 3 and 4 star hotels. On the down side the rooms are dated and due a refurb. Our toilet seat was cracked. no air-con or mini bar.

The plus side was superb service and the friendly staff would do all possible to help. rooms were very clean and the pool excellent. Set menu food was superb and had some flexibilty if vegetarian etc. I would stay here again and I would recommend this hotel.

If you go here I think Talloire will always hold a special place in your heart. We all loved it and even our 6 year old son said it was the best holiday ever

Had a really lovely holiday here - Lake Annecy is stunning and there is lots of activities. You get free mini golf, golf, cycling and tennis (and water sports when they are open!) with this hotel - but we went in Sept when a lot of the water sports were closed - and there are lots of good walks. Recommend you hire a car to drive around or else you will be bored in Talloires(but be careful of all the cyclists!). Talloires itself is tiny (but cute) not much restaurents apart from the more expensive hotel ones. Hotel Le Lac is nice - other people there were a bit old and there is no bar to go have a drink in the evening (but we're young and enjoyed it)- clean, relaxed and a lovely heated pool. Definately recommend the restaurent La Savorade by the Lake - lovely lovely food in a fab dining room or balc over looking lake at reasonable price - if you go to Talloires go here!
