Great hotel for one night stopover whilst travelling south. Warm welcome from staff and secure onsite parking. Room was lovely, shabby chic, comfortable. Easy access to the city, restaurants and shops. Would liked to have stayed longer. Great breakfast.

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

It's a wonderful riverside town with ample roman remains as well as superb more recent architecture. The hotel occupies a block of restored town buildings, restored in the best of Gallic good taste and is about as... More

Excellent location in centre of town, easy to find with garage parking. All staff were very friendly and the hotel was clean, comfortable and very well presented. The town had many interesting features to explore before going to dinner at a nearby restaurant recommended by the hotel receptionist.

Really nice clean hotel in a very central location close to all shops and restaurants. Staff all very pleasant and efficient. I actually originally booked on the wrong day with no cancellations allowed but the hotel staff very kindly changed the booking date without penalty. Overall very good value for money.

Stayed one night as we were on our way from Portugal to London and we were driving. Most places closed as we arrived on a Sunday. That was our problem and it seemed a very nice town to visit and hopefully we will return there one day.

...even for more than 1 night. Easy to reach, located in the middle of lively Saintes and yet quiet enough to secure ones sleep. Very friendly and diligent staff. Plenty of shops, restaurants, historic sites and other places of interest within wlaking distance, including picturesque river Charante.
