We stayed here for one night en route to the SW coast. It's right in the centre of town, a great location and has its own garage facilities (although you do need to book this to ensure you get a place). We loved the decor - really quirky - lots of pink and purple, and the reception area was full... More

An excellent find. We needed a base that would combine character town, ample choice of dining within walking distance, high standard of cleansiness and a peaceful nights sleep. Top that off with very hospitable staff, good breakfast available and a parking space! Parking in the old town is difficult so pre-book at the hotel advised (this too is quite tight!).... More

Thank god for hotels like these !! Bang smack in the middle of the old town, walking distance to plenty of restaurants, shops, market etc - parking available and extremely pleasant staff. At first we toyed with the idea of booking this hotel or the Mercure in Angouleme and I am so pleased we chose this hotel. We booked a... More

This hotel really has alot to offer, lovely position right in the centre of the old town, good clean rooms that are nicely decorated and very friendly staff. The breakfast was fantastic and we were just so pleased with our stay we were trying to think of reasons to come back. It had the personal touch of a boutique hotel... More

Nice hotel, little quirky with the colours. I rolled into the town at around 930pm (i dont pre book) and found this hotel after looking online, I took a room at the front of the hotel overlooking the central town square which was very nice looking out in the morning. Very hard to find parking though in the town though,... More

Maybe that we happened to coincide our stay with the International Vintage Car Rally was partly responsible for our fabulous time there last month, but a lot of it has to be down to this little gem of a hotel. The rooms are lovely and with fabulous views and the most charming couple to greet your every need with a... More

We were two friends travelling on motorcycles and, as requested, secure parking for our 2 bikes was available in the hotel garage. It was a little hard to find and our GPS managed to give us a comprehensive tour of Angouleme before we found the attractive square in the old town where the hotel is located! The hotel has a...

The hotel is a bugger to find, the receptonist was very helpful and tight parking was available in their car park. Our room was large , a bit spartan but with a huge bathroom. It overlooked the square and was therefore noisy. There are an amazing number of eating places just around the corner.

The owner of the Hotel du Palais is extraordinarily helpful. My wife was ill during our stay, and he was very, very kind and sympathetic. We cannot speak highly enough of him. The hotel itself is right in the middle of the lovely old city, within easy walk of the ramparts, the cathedral and lots of bars and restaurants. The... More

Enjoyed a nice one night stay. Hotel benefits from good location and has great character. Staff very friendly and made very welcome. Breakfast buffet was good and set us up for the day. Ok rooms are a little dated but for the price were clean and comfortable. Overall we would recommend the place.
