Don't pay until you have seen your room. If it's not what you expected you won't get a refund! We arrived late without a booking and were charged for a family room. Very apparently pet friendly. Hobson's choice in our case, so pre book if you can. Had we not paid at reception we might have moved on, but it...

Do not be put off by the logos 2 star rating. My room on the top floor was spacious, modern, air con and light. I was just passing through so did not expect much but the meal was of a good standard served with some excellent local brew. The car park was full but the public car park opposite was...

Broke up a trip between UK and Spain. Approx 7 hours to Dieppe, with stops. Will return to this delightfully located hotel. Staff very friendly and warm, excellent restaurant for dinner. Breakfast was good, with fresh bakery items on constant resupply, although could have benefitted from some fresh fruit. Room was good value, although the bathroom was a little small....

Reasonably priced and very well located in the centre of Jonzac with the bonus of private, secure parking. Our room was newly decorated, a reasonable size, clean and fresh. Bed comfortable & a decent shower. We ate in their restaurant and would certainly recommend that. Good choice on the menu, food tasty and well presented as well as sensibly priced...

This is probably the only good hotel for miles around. I was in a top floor room facing the car park during a heat wave. The room was simple with wine cases as bedside tables, decorated in burgundy and white. It was extremely hot without air con and not even showering and lying in bed wet helped (mattress had a...

A friend and i had lunch here in this charming historical old town. Jonzac is well worth a visit and the hotel did not disappoint. A medium size dining room full of locals was friendly and we had a very varied cold buffet starter followed by perfectly cooked fish. The lemon tart dessert was a bit sharp,but it was homemade.helpful...

This is not by any means a perfect hotel, but it is a perfectly decent Logis (and so trustworthy in a basic kind of way) with a good restaurant. Secure parking. Makes for a reliable stopover in this attractive small town in the Charantes-Maritimes.

Good value, clean, great location, easy to find and secure parking. Hotel restaurant was busy at dinner with limited menu, breakfast is help yourself and average but adequate. Friendly front desk. Bed was good, room very small, a bit scruffy if you look too closely. You probably wouldn't want to be here for a week but for a couple of...

As musicians playing during the Cognac festival we needed an extra night in the area. When we visited the L'Ecu although they only had one double room left they went out of their way and give us a double room with a small mattress on the floor which was fine and met our requirements. The Restaurant was very good and...
