“A really nice hotel with a beautiful view”
Reviewed October 15, 2008

The Auberge de la Cammanderie was a perfect location in Saint Emilion. We had a beautiful room (#8) overlooking rows of beautiful grapevines that were turning their fall colors. The hotel was easy to find and provided free, secure parking close by. All the major attractions were within walking distance of the hotel; and there were several restaurants in the area as well. Saint Emilion was a good central location for several day trips to some of France’s most beautiful cities. The gorgeous windmills just a few kilometers away in the middle of the grape fields were the best we saw in France. If we are ever fortunate enough to be in the area again, we would not hesitate to return to the Auberge.

Stayed here for just one night and for a two star hotel, found it to be excellent. The position was great and our room had a very fine view over the rooftops of St Emilion. The room was not large, but it was extremely clean.

Breakfast was excellent, with gorgeous buttery, soft croissants and a good range of jams, fruit and baguettes.

Certainly a highly recommended property

Loved the free, private parking nearby...very useful. Loved that we could stroll the town and make purchases without worrying about hauling them around with us all day...we just dropped it off at our room and continued strolling. Breakfast not worth the money, but the room was quite adequate and the interiors are quite modern and fun. We had the most amazing view of the bell tower from our bed. Charming!
Every staff member we encountered was very helpful and friendly, as well.

Saint Emilion is just the beautiful place, and the auberge de la commanderie was a nice place to stay. it's in a really old building, but they have tried to make the interior bright and modern. the murals on the wardrobes and walls weren't entirely to my taste, but I appreciated what they were doing. the lobby/breakfast area was bright and cheerful and it looked like the breakfast being served was high quality.
the owner and employees were really friendly, and very helpful with leaving luggage in the morning while we did some shopping. parking is free (a few streets away) which was a great bonus. the location is superb.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for one night on September 4th. I had confirmed our arrival by telephone the day before, and that we required a space in the car park for that night; however, on arrival, the person behind the desk was under the impression that we hadn't confirmed and had no idea about the parking. The car park was full, so we had to find another space and get up early to feed the meter, which wasn't ideal.

Our room (#7) was clean and adequate, but did not live up to the promising website. It was very small and, rather bizarrely, had one wall (with shelves and cupboards) covered with very bright, garish print, and the other three a dingy beige. The bathroom, again, was clean but small. There was a nice window that looked out onto vineyards.

Breakfast was an additional 9 euros, which was a little steep for the amount and quality. However, the breakfast was perfectly adequate, and there was some nice fruit with a piece of bread, a croissant, a small slice of cheese and a yoghurt. Plus a glass of juice and tea or coffee.

Although difficult to get to by car, it is very centrally located in the lovely town. It wasn't a bad experience, but we certainly wouldn't stay here again.

  • Liked — Its location
  • Disliked — the dingy room
  • Tips/Secrets — If you want to stay here, it's worth paying more for a better room. St Emilion is well worth a visit, though.

We loved our stay at Auberge de la Commanderie. They accommodated our request for one room with a shower and one with a bathtub, and the rooms were quite large compared to most I've seen in France. One room looked out onto a vineyard, and the other had a lovely view of the nearby cloister. An unusual feature of our room was a set of large, deep shelves that held our suitcases. The bathrooms were very modern and spacious.
The staff at couldn't have been more helpful. Some of our luggage didn't make the transfer from Paris to Bordeaux, and the staff helped by receiving the luggage and putting it in our room so that we could be out exploring the town.

L'Auberge de la Commanderie is a beautiful hotel ideally located in the charming medieval town of St. Emilion. Our room was fine and boasted a full-sized stained glass window.

So- what is the problem? Bait and switch and a very rude manager. I was quoted a price of 75 Euros and had a reservation. When we checked out, the price was quoted at 95 Euros because we were given a room in the annex. We did not request the annex and certainly would never had chosen it because it lacked an elevator which was promised in the add and on their web-site.

Go- but check price on arrival and insist on the room reserved.

This is our ninth trip to France and we have never had any similar experience.
