Like other reviewers we had a little trouble finding it. Thanks to the local government who want allow Austin and Nikki to put a sign up to point guests in the right direction. As you'll notice from other reviews Austin and Nikki love to meet and great their guests. In a country where to ignore your customers is an art... More

We found the hotel entrance hard to find and ended up driving around missing it twice. Once there we were greeted by the owner who was delightful. We accepted an upgrade to the Champagne suit which was tastefully decorated and spacious. I was running the Cognac marathon the following day and so opted to eat in the hotel's restaurant. We...

Fabulous peaceful place to stay. The host and hostess, Austen and Nikki are the loveliest and friendliest people you could wish to meet, as are their staff and of course Molly and Lily. Supper each evening was superb. I would love to come back and hope that I get the opportunity next year - love to you both xxxx mags

Not the easiest place to find but the welcome was very warm. The room was on the small side but clean. The pool was nice with nice decking and plenty loungers. The meal was an interesting mix of French and English, we didn't expect a large side dish of roast potatos with our meal. The overall experience was good but... More

This is our second time staying here and we enjoyed it even more than our first visit. It is a very relaxing , quiet place to stay but with easy access to Jarnac and Cognac. The rooms are large, clean and bright with good en-suites and comfortable beds. Whilst I will admit it is not 'boutique style' , what makes... More
