We stayed last night at this great centrally located hotel. We have a little poodle and he was made most welcome. Lovely room, great shower and a generous buffet breakfast. Lovely. I'd recommend this hotel. The location is its WOW factor. Some points to note, the name. We drove around for ages trying to find this hotel based on the... 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.

A very nice hotel in the centre of the old town. Beautifully decorated throughout, although the room was perhaps a bit modern for my taste, but this is quite a minor point really. Comfy bed and a really nice ensuite, it felt like a much more expensive hotel. There was an excellent breakfast choice of fruit, croissant, lovely bread, cheese... More

Good central location, with parking although we walked from the station. The helpful and friendly staff give it a "family run" feel. Buffet style breakfast allows you to select what you want from the wide choice. We would happily stay there again.
