This hotel and the team of staff, are very good. Professional attitude to a problem when we arrived, sorted out immediately. The superior room we had overlooked the busy centre. There was no noise from traffic. Tax coffee and fridge facilities in room were good. Room spacious and very comfortable. Small samples of Cognac were offered, to tempt you, during... More

A somewhat unexpected stop on our journey from Paris to Madrid, we were happy to find that this hotel stood up to its top rating. Our standard room (as in not the fanciest) boasted three windows – two in the bathroom with a view to the plaza, and a fine bedroom area with a comfy bed. The hotel is not... More

We received a warm welcome upon arrival and throughout our stay found the staff friendly and helpful. We had pre booked a space in the hotel's private, secure car park which accessed via a large doorway next to the main entrance, directly facing the main square. Although an historic building, the hotel has been refurbished to a high standard. The... More

The François 1er is a relatively small hotel in the heart of the town of Cognac. A short walk from charming shops and restaurants, it has three floors of modern, well appointed rooms. The hotel offers some subtle amenities many small-town hotels omit - the sheets and towels are excellent quality, there is complimentary bottled water in the small refrigerator... More

I just would like to specify something regarding our breakfast : the breakfast was included in the room rate because your reservation was made by a company that has a corporate contract with us.

Chose this hotel based on reviews and was not disappointed. The hotel is right in the centre of town with secure parking, beautiful rooms, excellent cocktail bar and great staff. The only thing that is missing is a restaurant for dinner but there are plenty of others spread throughout the town. I'm not sure whether we are fortunate or it... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in this truly lovely hotel while in France to celebrate our 45th anniversary. We chose it from Trip Advisor's website and were extremely pleased in every way.

A really really nice place to stay. A luxurious 4 star hotel and much better than expected. The very warm welcome we had, the room size even though we booked it cheap on Booking.com, the pool area and the bar in the evening. All in all a perfect place to stay.
