We reserved online at the hotel website 5 months in advance, confirming a "double confort" room with "demi pension" (breakfast and either lunch or dinner) at 178 E, with parking and breakfast extra. When we arrived on Tuesday, we were told that the restaurant was closed that day. We upgraded our room from a small street view to one of the larger rooms on the first floor with access from the garden (168 E for room only). We were allowed to check in early since the room was ready, and this was a plus, allowing us to picnic in the lovely garden area next to the pool, surrounded by the remnants of the medieval town wall. Our room was clean and comfortable with a queen size bed and a large bathroom and soaking tub. As others have mentioned, there are not many places to stay in St. Emilion and so the Palais Cardinal is a good choice. Breakfast at 14 E seemed high so we did not eat there. The staff was helpful and the maids were particularly cheerful. Since our room had no windows (other than the entry door), we were offered a fan to help circulate the air. We were only sorry that we could not dine in their restaurant, as we had read good reviews of the food.
