“Pleasant Hotel, Good location - but don't break the rules!”
Reviewed 11 July 2010

Stayed here for three nights during a very hot week. Typical French hotel - basic but comfortable and that odd smell of cat pee! Short walk down to the lake but a good 15mins up the hill to the village shops. Simple breakfast of rolls and jam served in the garden or in the rather dated breakfast room depending on the weather. We stayed in room 1 on the first floor with a small sunny balcony. The room was basic but clean and adequate for our short stay. Only one socket in the room - oddly located in the bathroom. There was no information folder in the room but a couple of notices about non smoking in the hotel or grounds ( we don't smoke) and that we should use towels more than once ( which we were willing to do) but these were changed daily anyway. No internet but a small guests TV room on the ground floor. As there was no hotel restaurant or snack bar we ate out but on the final day whilst sitting in the garden we dared to eat a sandwich... There was no notice to say this wasn't allowed but the proprietor came bounding across the lawn telling us on no uncertain terms that we were breaking the rules and that we had to end our picnic -'right now'. We were left feeling shocked and uncomfortable and left the garden straight away. This really did spoil our last day, feeling like school children and not knowing what reception we would receive at the final mornings breakfast. Luckily the proprietors wife served us.
The garden had a small number of sun loungers - but not enough for all guests so it looked like some guests were resorting to reserving them with towels! Take care walking down to the lake as dog walkers use the same route and don't clean up after their pets - I unfortunately walked in this mess on the way back to the hotel - not a pleasant experience! Take a torch for the evening walk back as its pretty dark.
The lake was beautiful and the small marina and walk along the lake surrounded by mountains really made this break. We won't be going back just because we were made to feel uncomfortable for breaking an unwritten rule - apart from this our stay was an enjoyable one!
- one more piece of advice - don't bother visiting the Casino in Annecy - complete rip off - save your money for Las Vegas!

Sorry my english don't permit me to answer with the good words ; I would really prefered answer in french.
I just want to regreat the indelicacy of my brother concerning this stupid story.
Thank you to inform us of the absence of notice about picnic not allowed in the garden ; we will remedy this year.
Concerning the description of the surrounding, I regreat the lack of pertinence and accuracy.
The area is really exceptional whatever you say.

Reviewed 6 September 2009

found this hotel by chance. well pleased. a simple country house style with spacious simply decoprated rooms (large bathrooms) with balconies overlooking trim gardens , a village location within two minutes walk of a beautiful part of the lakefront where it is possible to sunbathe and swim in the lake (which in August was beautifully warm) . needless to say the lake is stunning and Annecy (15 mins drive away) is splendid for strolling , cafes and lunch. hotel beau sejour fits the bill for a short reasonably inexpensive stay when part of a broader tour of the general area (savoie, haute savoie...) . staff are very pleasant and helpful. english spoken.
