We stayed in May on the way to Spain via Bordeaux. We could have driven further but this seemed a nice enough place and gave us time to look round. The hotel is clean and a little dated but has its own secure car park and is only a 10 minute walk from the town centre. There is a small... More

This is a charming little hotel in the centre of Saintes, so it is convenient if you are maximising your driving time as it is situated close to the motorway system (to/from the direction of Bordeaux/Spain). I’ve stayed here many times and everything has always come up to standard. Some rooms have sunny balconies which can be relaxing after a... More

This hotel is on our walking route south to Bordeaux, and close to the sights of the old town. The building lacks historical character or modern functionality, but suited our purpose and budget. My room on the second floor - steep stairs, no lift, mind your head- is quite large by recent standards. It has a stand for my bag... More

Forced to stay near Royan when car developed injection problems and had to stay in Nissan garage for a couple of days. Found this great little hotel in Saintes and only 5-10 mins walk from all the history and river side sites and old town. The service was fantastic with the owner holding our room until we were sure about... More

Stayed one night at this establishment, but would have been more than happy to stay longer. A friendly and welcoming little place, very convenient for the city and railway station. Our room, booked for 2 people, with single beds in fact had 1 single and 1 double bed. Beautiful spacious bathroom well equipped. The room also had the facility of... More

The headline say's it all really. Thin walls, cheap furnishings and a feeling of penny pinching.

Travelling from Brittany to the Southwest, I intended to spend the night in Niort, but there was not a bed to found in that city. So I went on to Saintes and found the Hôtel de l'Avenue with a high ranking. It is small (15 rooms), on a main street but quiet, simple but pleasant, with a little balcony to... More

This was a quaint hotel. It was not the fanciest hotel I've ever stayed in but it was by far the most friendly. It has no elevator but there are only 1 to 2 flights of stairs depending where your room is. We had a big room with a view facing the Abbey. We also had a smaller room facing... More
