This hotel, situated at the top of the steep main street and with its own secure parking, should be a winner. It's built into the ruins of the old cardinal's palace and has a pretty garden. But it's seen better days. There's nothing wrong with it; it's just not very exciting. Try to get a room overlooking the garden, which...

The staff was friendly and polite. The room was perfect for our tastes, might be a little dated and small by American standards, but this is Saint-Emilion, France. Our room had a small terrace overlooking the garden with roses and wisteria vine....and the only the sounds of doves cooing!

Could not be better located for parking. The staff is over the top helpful. I can not praise them enough. The hotel has been in the family since the late 1800s and the staff has very long service. The rooms are pretty basic. Small, short on amenities. Not rooms you will want to lounge in. Pricing is more than fair....

We booked for two nights, but only stayed for one. The hotel was empty and yet we were first given a room where the bath was tiny and the shower over was positioned in the eaves so it would have been impossible to stand up. We asked to be moved and the next room was barely better (room 30). The...

The location of the hotel is good, however the hotel itself is pretty mediocre. The room we stayed in was small and the furniture very tired and unimaginative. The breakfast was better than expected with a decent selection of breads, meats and cheeses. The staff were helpful. I would not stay there again.

I stayed here for one night while on a walking holiday. The concierge was friendly and accommodating, the room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We didn't use the pool, as the weather was a bit cool. I would definitely stay here again if in Saint-Emilion!

At the last minute we had to stop off and spend the night in St Emilion. This was the only place that would accept our little dog and had availability. The a/c was noisy even when off, the room was very average indeed and the bill was quite ridiculous. However, dinner was excellent. A very contradictory experience. I suspect this...

From the times when I have been late away and early back, it appears St Em is pretty hellish in the day time, but in the evenings when the crowds have gone it is magical and the Palais Cardinal is a great place to stay to enjoy it. The hotel is situated right at the top of the main street...

I stayed here 11-12 septembre. Hotel is SUPER. Nice, calm, beautiful. Kind, helpful staff. Located in the village and after long walking you may just come here and have rest. An interior is gorgeous - made as old french chic. Room is small but have enough for comfortable rest. No plastic window - old woody. Only one discomfort - loud...

An extremely well located hotel for a stay in St Emilion. Very warm friendly staff, good clean rooms and good facilities. Also off street parking and a swimming pool added to the pluses. A small downside our rooms had no aircon, apart from this we had a great stay
