I love this place. Why? Because it delivers on all counts. Only a couple of minutes drive from Jarnac and you are in this peaceful haven. It's a place where, when you step out of the car, you feel yourself start to relax. It's old - quaint - beautiful - rambling. The rooms are so comfortable and tastefully homely, and... More

We are wondering whether we actually stayed at the same hotel as the other recent reviewers! Or maybe it's because we stayed a full week (as we'd pre-booked) and they only stayed a couple of nights? So here goes: The pros - Close to Jarnac which is beautiful, in a lovely rural setting. The property is a tasteful conversion with... More

The rooms were absolutely fine and were very clean. The owner Nikki and her staff Louise were very friendly and hospitable, whenever we needed something they were... More

Only stayed 1 night but fabulous place. Dinner was absolutely scrummy served in a beautiful courtyard setting. Our room was really lovely with a brilliant bathroom and decor overall. Comfy bed. What more could you ask for. The owners were charming. Would stay longer next time.

Well there are hotels and there are hotels, one has to say that this is the very best for customer service. Situated just outside of Jarnac in the Charente, we found the beautiful Karina Hotel. Owners Nikki and Austin make you feel that you are much more than a hotel guest. The rooms are great with everything that you could... More

We stayed at Hotel Karina during the last week of June 2013. Lovely clean hotel that is fabulously situated in the middle of the country but near to Cognag and Jarnac. An oasis with a cool pool and shaded courtyard to have a quiet meal. Everything had a quality feel about it. Excellent food. Didn't want to leave. Very friendly... More

We had 2 very enjoyable nights at the Hotel Restaurant Karina, our hosts were fantastic and made us feel very welcome. The room which was in effect like a small cottage and was very comfortable and private. The dining room/ bar which includes the distillation equipment from its previous life as a cognac house was amazing. The food was very... More

A warm welcome, a comfortable bed. An ice-cold pineau de Charentes aperitif and an excellent dinner. The calves liver main course was exquisite! Breakfast was served in the sunny courtyard - hot croissants and home-made bread and preserves. The only drawback was that we didn't allow enough time to enjoy the swimming pool!
