If you ever travel through Charente or are thinking of a lovely idealic relaxing french holiday then without a doubt the Karina ,is a Hotel extraordinaire. From the minute you turn into the long drive, it is like being wrapped in a warm blanket. An old Cognac Distillary lovingly converted by Austin and Nikki Legon into a wonderful hotel built... 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

Whilst the hosts are a charming couple it is very obvious that this attempt to create a Logis from an old Cognac distillery has been and still is a DIY project. I'm afraid a lot of the work is not to a very high standard, with very uneven floors and poor finishes. For the standard offered this Logis is over... More

Agree most of the comments below, both good and bad. This makes it difficult to reiew. The most disturbing thing was opening the back window of the room onto a road where a gang of road menders were laying maoins drainage. Perhaps these rooms should not be in use while the work is in progress The hotel is an old... More

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

A group of us made up of family and friends stayed here for 3 nights after a wedding. We all absolutely loved staying at Hotel Karina, we had no complaints during our stay. 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
