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!

We only stayed for one night en route to Carcassonne, but what a find! Nicki and Austin were great hosts - felt like old friends. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the food was superb. I can see why people return year after year, and we will certainly be back.

Such a lovely hotel, run by such a lovely couple! Wonderful food from morning til night. We didnt have enough time at the hotel to sample everything and have decided to go back again just for the menu! The room was spacious and more than comfortable - in fact, we had too much sleep due to the large comfy bed!!!!

We wanted a hotel close to a great, but small, Cognac distillery at Neuviq le Chateau. We learnt that the distiller visited the restaurant regularly and this in itself was a great recommendaiton. We were made very welcome by Nicki who took us to a wonderful room with plenty of space and a fully equipped bathroom. The restaurant was very... More
