First impression of our room was that it was in need of a bit of a make over but it was comfortable with a good shower room. On site parking available at a fee but well worth it. Good location in the Town so you can walk to plenty of restaurants and bars. Breakfast was very good and in a... More

We stopped here for 2 nights on the way south through France and would really recommend the place. The staff were exceptionally helpful and the accommodation clean and pleasant. The decor is interesting - essentially quirky shabby chic style. Breakfast was good value, and the hotel has a private garage. It is superbly located for the old town, and Saintes... More

Saintes is a lovely town. The hotel is in the old town and very easy to find. Good safe, undercover, private parking, just yards from the hotel. A multitude of restaurants within easy walking distance. Beautiful river just a few hundred yards away. My large twin room was reasonable value. The bathroom was very dated, but spotlessly clean. Overall, I... More

The city of Saintes is full of history and the Messageries is ideally placed near the old city. There are not many good hotels so close. It offers clean quiet rooms with an adequate breakfast and friendly service but no meals-see my web site www.walkingaroundfrance.com

I arrived in Saintes with no bed booked, did a quick tour of the two star hotels in the town centre and this one looked easily the nicest. There was a choice of several grades of room - the cheapest was (unsurprisingly) a bit on the small side but the others were fairly large by French standards. Nice friendly atmosphere.

While I was on a solo bicycle trip through Charente-Maritime, someone recommended stopping in Saintes and staying at the Hotel des Messageries. Upon arrival, I was surprised to find the staff spoke English (far better than my French) and the decor was simultaneously homey and very chic. I had no reservation and was immediately shown to a lovely, quiet room... More

great place, clean and attractive decor, good breakfast, helpful friendly staff, and we were able to take advantage of the secure garage parking, and all for a very good price. We will be back.

We really enjoyed our stay in Saintes and the surrounding area of Saintonge. This hotel was originally a "relais de poste" or postal stop, thus the name Hotel des Messageries. See their website: [--] - The owners have done a good job renovating the entire place. See photos. - Quiet location in the center of the old town near all... More
