If you've read the other 2 reviews you may wonder how the same place could be viewed so differently, so let's get this clear - it is a two star hotel for which you will not pay a lot of money. It badly needs to renew facilities in the rooms, simple things like light bulbs, shower holdings, etc. For me it's main failing was not to have a tiny, luggage only lift out the back meaning you have to lug bags up a number of stairs.
The owners were charming and the breakfast excellent; of course it doesn't have a bar or restaurant and the owners like to be able to leave the hotel and have lunch, etc. but there is an entry code to get back in. After all, it's just a place to get your head down, shower, etc.
Our experience of Poitiers was great; imagine leaving London early one morning and being sat in the sun in a pavement cafe in Poitiers overlooking the main, very attractive square, round the corner from your hotel by lunchtime.
Poitiers itself was a great place for a long weekend, lots of monuments, a market out of town, restaurants, good discounted CD store, be aware that it's on a steephill so if you walk down, you have to walk back up!
