Very pleasantly surprised by this hotel which is situated in an old post house in the centre of town. Our room was lovely - nicely furnished, good bathroom, warm and comfortable. Secure garage parking (reserved in advance) was a bonus. Breakfast offered a good choice and the staff were friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay here again if ever... More

Just in the center of Saintes this hotel is a good choise for one night stop. Rooms and bathrooms are recently renovated keeping in mind the 300 years' history of the hotel. Service was very friendly. Breakfast buffet ok. There was no noise, so you slept well. The hotel garage was full, but they advised a secured parking just across... More

We had a family for the three of us. Plenty of sleeping room (bathroom was also spatious). Breakfast was simple and very good. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.

Had a stopover on our way to the Landes and was overjoyed. Spacious and comfortable family room. Quirky decor and good quality furniture. We paid the 6 euros for the air con which we were quite happy to pay for. There is no bar, but when situated in the centre of this town there is more than ample choice within... More

Classic 3-star. Rooms large enough, and you can get a quiet one over a quiet alley. You don't need to pay for AC if you get this room as you can leave the windows open at night. Saintes is pretty quiet. Bathrooms are fine, clean, big. Free wifi which worked perfectly. Breakfast was very good for the price and half... More

In spite of the annual fair with the main/ high street blocked off, we managed to get by car to the hotel, which is, indeed, in the pedestrian zone. Lovely city hotel, with parking included in the price. Perfect location, delightful room, which was so pretty and unique. We had a view on the street and just needed to shut... More

We thank you for your feedback and are really happy you liked your stay. Normally the garage is in supplement for 10 €/night/space. We have only 12 car spaces for 34 rooms that's why we ask you to book it in advance and it's subject to availibility. Waiting for your next stop in Saintes to welcome you again ! More

We spent two nights here last week. The hotel is comfortable, centrally located and quiet, being located just down a side road. Breakfast is a buffet with lots of choice and the staff were all friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and freshly decorated.
