The hotel is located in the middle of the city in a pedestrian area, and the rooms are very calm and quiet. They offer private parking but there is also public parking within walking distance. The riverside and the city park are 2/7 minutes away, respectively. Saintes was a lovely find, and this hotal a gem within it.

The hotel is well situated for visiting Saintes, they have undercover parking (€10) but there is public parking nearby. The room was not huge but spacious enough and had the benefit of a mini bar and tea/coffee making facilities. It was very clean. The breakfast was very good and the staff were all very friendly.

We stayed one night, and it was amazing. Reception was friendly and helpful when we checked in in the evening at 8:30 p.m. The owners were there when we got up in the morning. They were friendly and helpful as well. They were even able to get us a taxi to the train station, and they are very difficult to obtain. It was hot outside, and each room had an A/C unit that we controlled for our comfort. The room was large for Europe, and it was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and they made health accommodations for covid. It was centrally located, so we were able to walk everywhere to see all of Saintes. There is also parking available. I will only stay here in the future.

Quaint, comfortable, clean, conveniently located in the heart of this lovely small town. We were greeted by a very friendly reception only too pleased to recommend good restaurants nearby like L'Insolite nearby (excellent). The hotel is older with a rustic charm and more character than many of the larger, chains of hotels that we have stayed in. The breakfast was good and we took ours in the courtyard so our little pooch could join us - great coffee, lovely cheeses, nice breads, cereals, juices. Very good sleep quality from comfortable beds and a quiet environment. We were also able to book a parking space in the hotel garage.

Very good location in the middle of town on a quiet street with nice restaurants around. We were able to find free parking nearby. The "suite" was a strange L-shape with even stranger furniture, 1960s formica mixed with heavy wood. The room was basically clean but more attention should have been paid to inside drawers and the shower divider.

Regarding the room don't hesitate next time to let us know at your arrival. All our team is at your disposal to find an issue. All our rooms are completly different meaning different decoration, size of the room what makes the charm of our hotel. We noted your remarks regarding clean of the room. Good continuation.

Used this hotel as a stop off enroute from Spain to Brittany, . The hotel is located in the heart of the city, close to the river and very easy to find and sign posted. Significant work has been undertaken to turn this venue into a hotel. The hotel is excellently maintained, stylishly decorated and the rooms were spacious, extremely clean, with very comfy beds. Staff were very friendly and professional. Breakfast was a slight disappointment, only a continental breakfast is offered. Secure parking was a real bonus. Pleasantly surprised by the hotel and the very pretty town of Saintes. Will certainly stay here again when travelling through France.

Well run and conveniently located. We were in easy walking distance to the major sights of Saintes, as well as to some excellent restaurants— L’Insolite and La Table des dix Vins— and a fantastic breakfast bakery, La Boulangerie du Palais. Our room’s air conditioning was a blessing at the end of a hot day of sightseeing.

Very nice hotel in the middle of town, very convenient, parking available, they even accommodated our too high van in another garage of the hotel, beds were very comfortable, room a decent size, breakfast buffet was very good.

The bathroom didn't have a strong enough fan, so when you take two showers in a row, the steam makes the entire bathroom wet and it stays like this for hours. So it's always very damp in there and a damp smell. The floor also flooded slightly and the water never went until we used a towel. Plus the shower curtain is out of cloth, so it also stays damp for a long time and contributes to the wet smell. They also didn't offer any vegetarian milk nor gluten-free bread at the breakfast buffet.
