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 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. Use of the air conditioning unit cost an extra 6 euros which we weren't expecting,... More

Stayed in this charming friendly Hotel in Saintes and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, very comfortable, central place to stay. Even had a garage to keep your car in for a small cost

Hotel des Messageries was one of the most pleasant stops on our trip. Location was ideal. Room was clean, quiet and very comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Petit dejeuner was excellent. City of Saintes was a delightful "find" for us.

We stayed for two nights in two rooms for a break on our cycling trip South. Saintes was strangely deserted in August, does it ever get busy? The hotel was clean and efficient but the rooms were strangely shaped and the decoration a little tired. It was a bit noisy at times. Breakfast was good. the rooms were €88 and... More

We thank you for your feedback. You came at a quiet period in Saintes, all festivals taking place mid July/early August (Annual Classical Music Festival and "Les Oreilles en Eventail" which are streets shows) . Saintes in summer, it's of course summer events but it's also summer paradise to have a rest and be relaxed during holidays! We are happy... More

This Hotel is right in the centre of Saintes near to restaurants, shops, Roman remains and Churches. The Hotel was very comfortable and attractive with very good breakfasts. Although the enclosed garage cost extra it was worth it to be able to park right in the centre next to the hotel.
