Hotel Au Chapon Fin
Ranked #28 of 35 Hotels in Poitiers
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We found this hotel in the Rough Guide to France guidebook and turned up there without a reservation. The staff were friendly and kind and had a vacancy in a room on the top floor. The room and en suite were small but clean, and at €50 per night good value considering a nearby campsite was charging €35!

The hotel is right in the centre of town which made it difficult to find (we were driving) but it was excellently located for restaurants and bars. It made a perfect cheap and cheerful base from which to explore Poitier and the surrounding area.

Booked a double room, arrivied, paid, went to room - then left the hotel and found an alternative! The whole place stank of smoke. Bedroom was on the top floor (loft). Carpets were dirty. Bed linen sheet had a hole. Wobbly hand basin in bathroom. Place looked and felt very tired and grubby.

The hotel is perfectly located right in the centre of the old town and the staff (or owners) is very nice and helpful. BUT the hotel is old and was never or poorly renovated. Some of the rooms are tacky. One, which is smelly and does not have toilets gives out onto a wall. I t is cheap in every way and I would really hesitate before recommending it. I would, personnally, not go back .

The owner seemed a little confused himself as to whether or not he wanted to be helpful.

The rooms are lovely, with antique furniture (though the bidet leaked, which no doubt symbolizes something). The location is wonderful, right across a tiny street from the most shockingly beautiful town hall I've ever seen. In general, the hotel is right where it should be.

Be warned: despite what they say on their website, there's no way that you can check in during their long afternoon break.

A warm, friendly, clean and really wonderful hotel. Rooms are spacious, the breakfasts are well prepared and fresh, andl the two young people who run the hotel really do try their best to make everyone welcome. I stay in this hotel every time I go to Poitiers -- I'd recommend it to everyone!
