“Great location! Great rooms! Great hosts!”
Reviewed March 20, 2011

There is a magic about this place. One showers in hot water dervived from sunshine. Sleeps on marshmallows. If required...Prepares one's own food in a sun-filled, spotless and well equipped kitchen/ diner. Chills on a sun-drenched terrace, overlooking the spectacular river Vienne. Awakes to the gentle peal of the church bell to be lured by the smell of wonderful morning bread across the old bridge or in the other direction to hot quiche with goat cheese. Is effortlessly stimulated by the social breakfast with lengthy discussions on whatever arises out of multiple cups of tea or coffee and a variety of delicious petit-dejeuner foods. After our very disappointing gite experience last summer this was a wonderful contrast.
Nothing is too much trouble for Mary and Nick.

What a place to stay. Nick and Mary were the perfect hosts providing an excellent unobstrusive service. We hoped to book the family room but it was already taken so Nick kindly offered us two adjacent rooms - they were perfect for our needs and I loved the decor. We would strong recommend pre-booking an evening meal, we have fond memories of sitting on the balcony enjoying the excellent home cooked food, wine and good conversation with fellow guests and hosts. Our son enjoyed sharing gardening tips with Mary while our daughter played with the 2 cats. Don't think twice about staying here - book it now :o)

Truly, if I was asked how Pont Vieux Cambres d'hotes could be improved, I could not think of anything to suggest. It is a magnificent building in a magical position, restored with impeccable taste. We only had 3 days here, but could have happily stayed for weeks. The views from the balcony in our room were just so special.
Mary and Nick have done (and are still doing) a great job. They are lovely people.
I could go on and on........... Go to Confolens, it is a beautiful medieval town, and STAY HERE!!!!

We went to Confolens to deal with a potentially stressful family matter. We needed a calm, comfortable environment within easy reach of the town. We got so much more.

Our hosts, Mary and Nick, were welcoming, friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive.
The rooms were very clean and comfortable with just the right level of luxury.
Access to a well equipped guest kitchen was the icing on the cake for this excellent chambre d'hote.

Having access to the garden and the river views was a bonus and we even had diy tips thrown in....... stress..... what stress! This stay was sheer bliss.

This place was a great find. The rooms are super comfortable with views over the river. We were greeted by Nick who gave us two cold beers and a seat on the terrace by the river to tell us about the local restaurants and how they had found the place. In the morning you can look forward to a great breakfast with homemade jams, milky coffee and a boiled egg. The couple Nick and Mary are two gems from the South West of England, friendly and really loving what they’re doing. They are now renovating the downstairs space to turn it into an atelier for art classes. The garden is a dream, Frances Hodgson Burnett style. Complete with two chilled out cats. All this for 55 Euro a night sharing. I could have spent much longer than onne night there!

A delightful and most interesting place to stay with lovely rooms, historic character and run by Nick and Mary who are exceptionally nice and very good at what they do. Great location, laid back atmosphere and remarkably good value for money. In one word - "perfect". I can't think of anything negative.
