    Our opinion

    La Reserve is a relaxing family-run hotel in a river-side location.

    Hotel description

    A family run hotel with a good reputation for comfort, service and cuisine, La Reserve occupies a low building constructed in the style of the region in its own parkland and grounds bordering the river Tarn. A short distance from the cathedral city of Albi, La Reserve offers comfortable, charming accommodation, furnished with traditional, period pieces of furniture with a cosy, homely feel. A 4 star member of Relais and Chateaux, the hotel makes an interesting place to stay for exploring the countryside around Albi, the Gaillac vineyards and the attractive valley of the Aveyron. La Reserve has just 22 rooms and suites, all with private bathroom, air conditioning, telephone and television. There is an outdoor swimming pool and a gourmet restaurant, serving specialities of the region. The rooms at La Reserve have views of the park, the swimming pool or the river.
