My friends and I stayed one night after walking from St Aubin de Blaye, and La Citadelle was a most welcome place to stay. My room was huge with two double and one single beds, comfortably furnished, even a stand for my bag. The bathroom was also spacious and well equipped. Although no longer new, the hotel is well maintained.... More

Located inside a citadelle built by Vauban, in an od convent, this hotel gave me mixed feelings: - on the positive side, the location, the breathtaking view on the river below, specially at sunset, the friendliness of staff, the part of the rooms just renovated (brand new AC, new windows, very nice pool & terrace), excellent bedding, good breakfast with...

This was our first visit to the Citadelle, and I suspect it won't be our last. The setting is ideal, in the centre of the Vauban citadelle overlooking the Gironde. The weather could have been better but it was April. We had a warm welcome. the room was a little out of date, particularly the bathroom, but most French rooms... More

We last stayed here six years ago: nothing has changed! The setting inside the Vauban fort is incredible, with stunning views over the Gironde from the bedrooms and terrace. There are lots of good points, the ability to park by the hotel, friendly staff, a good mattress, a very quiet and peaceful setting with a small swimming pool and garden.... More

We arrived at the citadel for a look & enquiried at the office of tourism of places to stay & was surprised that there was a hotel in the citadel. We were sold with the view. Yes the decor may not be the best but the bed was comfy & view was brilliant. We had some cheese & wine poolside... More

We had been to Blaye several times and always imagined the Citadelle hotel to be somewhere worth staying. The setting is fantastic, within the walls of the Citadelle itself with commanding views of the Gironde. Well, that sums it up. The rooms are done in the style of the worst of the French chain hotels- you know, the ones clustered... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Citadelle and even got engaged there. The views from the hotel are beautiful and so is the Citadelle. We didn't really have to deal with the hotel staff at the time as we ate out each time but the rooms were clean and quite comfortable. As we liked the location, we decided to get... More

The Citadelle at Blaye had been our favourite hotel for 20 years. Until our last visit I would have said that the rooms were not brilliant, but the setting is fantastic, the service was excellent and the restaurant was superb. The food was the main reason we came back again and again over the years to the hotel. We visited... More

We have now stayed at the Citadelle twice . The staaff have been extremely helpful and friendly nd the food in bothe restaurants is excellent. The location is absolutely stunning looking over the Gironde and the entrance is extraordinary as you drive in through the Citadel. Overall a great hotel we will be back
