What a wonderful welcoming hotelier. Catherlene the manager couldn't be more helpful. Told us where to go in this wonderful town, advised us where to eat. Rooms comfortable and place full of charm. Zacky does miss their lovely pooch speed

Very convenient, excellent location literally steps away from Saintes station. Madame Catherine gave us the warmest of welcomes and, assiduous attention throughout our stay, with lots of helpful advice and good humour. Rooms were, (as previous reviewers have mentioned) quirky, but clean and comfortable with the personal stamp of owners much in evidence. Breakfast was rolls croissant, cereals, fruit juices,...

We arrived late without a reservation and were relieved and grateful to be offered a family room for four. Having unloaded tired and emotional kids and partner from the car we were greeted with the news that because another family room had not been cleaned the room offered to us was now to be offered to someone else and our...

We stayed overnight at this hotel August 2013. We had our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren with us. Hotel is a step back in time, typical French. Owners friendly and vary helpful. Madame speaks very good English. Rooms clean but a little dated. Short stroll to some very good restaurants and not far to centre of Saintes. Would stay there... More

My husband and I stayed for one night and were delighted, both by the hotel and the owners. The hotel retains all its charm, the rooms are large and clean with period furniture, so much nicer than most budget hotels. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and I would not hesitate to stay again. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night in August 2011 and we found the hotel charming, the owners were so kind and friendly toward us and the town of Sainted was absolutely beautiful. We'd go back tomorrow given the chance.

Twelve months ago - to this very day - we spent one night in the lovely and comfortable Arcantis Au Terminus hotel in Saintes. Driving from San Sebastian to Nantes (with a lunch detour to Cazeres) Saintes provided us with a convenient and charming overnight stay. My husband, daughter and I enjoyed the comfort of the spacious and very clean... More

Saintes is a charming small town just off the A10 about halfway down western France not far from La Rochelle, which makes it perfect for an overnighter if you're heading for Spain. The Terminus is a defiantly unmodernised station hotel full of oddball furniture and objets, and run by a genial couple who have put a very definite personal stamp... More

We stayed at the Hotel Terminus for one night during a visit to Saintes. If we didn't have to move on we would have stayed longer in both the town and at this hotel. 56 euros for a double was great value - particularly since the rooms have been recently renovated to a high standard of finish. Located close to... More

We were travelling through France and stayed at this hotel on our first night in France. It was easy to find as we were driving. Friendly staff. Lovely breakfast. Room was clean and basic. Nice size. Would recommend. The town of Saintes is worth a visit.
