Wonderful spacious rooms with (in our case) a private garden which allowed us to take advantage of the sun. The only disadvantage was that during our stay (a Sunday and Monday) the restaurant was not open. So, we were not really able to benefit from the restaurant which has good references. Breakfast is very nice and service is great.

A lovely luxury hotel in the center of Saint Emilion with superb views of the town and valley. The rooms are large, quiet and luxurious with wonderful sheets, towels, amenities and a modern, updated bathroom. Some rooms have private terraces. Unfortunately, my room did not have a view or terrace. The Michelin starred food did not disappoint. Cedric's cuisine is... More

In August we stayed in Plaisance for the third time in five years. Until this trip, it was my favorite hotel. While it is still good, the experience was not the same. We did stay in the Petrus Suite downstairs, and while the room was up to their usual standards and the patio and garden that came with the room... More

Located right in the heart of the old town, the hotel is beautifully designed, feeling very small, but with first rate service and no sacrifice of quality. We were given a beautiful room "Petrus" on its own level with a private terrace that included a private garden/lawn overlooking the city below. The room itself was beautifully appointed and large, with... More

After a horrendous experience, I checked out of a sub par hostel promoting itself as a three star hotel, and came here for a night. Unbelievable view from atop St Emilion, and so peacefully quiet, it was sheer heaven! Will definitely return, and soon, like next year!!!

Where do I begin... It is very rare that you find a hotel that anticipates every guest need before the guest even asks. This hotel has managed to achieve that feat. Besides the hotels excellent location, built into the side of St. Emilion and attached to the abbey, the hotel itself is beautiful and beautifully decorated. The staff, though, is... More

This hotel is very very good and its location is perfect overlooking the village square. It is my second visit and my best. The restaurant is excellent and the service outstanding. The food is near three star in presentation and product quality with one of the best duck dishes I have tasted, the lobster starter was also excellent but pricy.... More

Perfect location, outstanding customer service, truly friendly stuff. The best place to stay it St.Emillion. Beware of the restaurant, though. It is not nearly two star Michelin gastro restaurant (but quite good though).
