The hotel was in an old building just off one of the main streets. It was pleasant, clean , basic and was manned by polite ,friendly and helpful staff. I would recommend parking at their own secure garage as it took the stress out of parking and worrying if the car was safe. We were able to easily walk to... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way back tot he UK from Spain. The hotel is in an old building which no doubt places restrictions on the interior. However, despite this it is a lovely hotel. the rooms are clean and comfortable with well equipped bathrooms. Breakfast was good. Parking, at a well worthwhile extra charge is close... More

Hotel was in a brilliant location and the staff were helpful and efficient. The public areas were lovely, but our room and bathroom were dated and tired - very 80s decor and an antidiluvian air conditioning unit. Bath fittings were old - our shower was broken, and there were no spare power points to charge a mobile. Breakfast was good,... More

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
