We arrived in Cognac without a hotel reservation so ended up here as a result of the Tourist Information. Evidently all hotels in the town centre were full and the only reason that we're able to book this room is that it was supposedly a suite (at double to cost of the all standard rooms!!).
The hotel reception was extremely friendly and checked us in quickly and efficiently. They didn't even charge us for the garage parking which is normally an extra. Bearing in mind the room rate just for the two of us this was the least they could have done.
The room was clean and tidy with a very large double bed. There were facilities for two further single 'put-up' beds and a set of bunk beds so if there was a requirement for six people in a room this would be excellent value. As there wasn't six of us it wasn't. I wouldn't really have described it as a suite but two rooms knocked into one as there was only one shower room. Oh and that reminds me, we were a little disappointed there was no bath . . . there could have easily been enough room.
Breakfast was a little disappointing but functional and basic.
Very friendly owners and if we'd had a standard room at the standard rate we'd be more positive and have felt as though we'd had value for money . . . just not at 'suite' prices!!
Great location though just off the main square.
