In passing through Saintes we saw this hotel which looked inviting. The welcome was good and there was garage parking. A little cramped but arranged to let first out people go early. The room was lovely and the hotel generally clean and airy. Breakfast was a little disappointing with only two croissants on view and a very limited choice but... More

Stayed for 2 nights when travelling from St Malo to the Biarritz area. The hotel seems to be an odd collection of old houses and newer additions. The receptionist(s) were very helpful. Our room was a good size but came with a very small bathroom. Whilst it was all very clean the shower had no door or curtain so it... More

Excellent welcome after a long drive. This makes such a difference. Booked parking in advance and had an allocated space. Room was a good size. Breakfast was good. However, the friendliness of the staff made this lovely hotel stand out.

Normally when driving to Malaga we have one stop at the border only " St Jean de Luz " but this time we thought we would take it easier and have two stops, hence breaking in Saintes. This Hotel is very easy to find, 5 minutes from the autoroute and located in the older part of town. Lovely room in... More

Great hotel in the middle of the old city, convenient for shops and restaurants. The staff are friendly and helpful. They speak excellent English, which after a long journey can be very welcome. I would recommend this hotel without reservation
