“Comfort in Saint Emilion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

This hotel has a nice location on the top of the valley in Saint Emilion. The rooms are basic but comfortable and have a certain historic feeling. We had one across the street from the main building with a view of the clocher.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

This was a busy little town when we arrived. We received several suggestions for a hotel or B and B from Tourist Information. We like to be able to walk to dinner so we wanted to stay right in the village. There were quite a few places that were wineries that offered accommodations but that meant staying outside the village. We chose the Auberge de la Commanderie because of the reasonable room rate and the cleanliness and newness of the room. Very comfortable bed and linens. They had a nice lounge/lobby area where you could read or play games. The hotel offered a breakfast for an extra fee which we declined. The hotel had a private, gated parking area about a 5 minute walk away. This was convenient as most other parking was pay parking.

The Auberge De La Commanderie is a two star hotel located in Rue Des Cordeliers in Saint Emilion.
It is within easy walking distance of the town centre and many tourist attractions such as the Cordeliers cloister, the market hall, the monolithic church and its bell tower and the steep cobblestone streets of this charming medieval town.

Unusually for a hotel in St Emilion the Commanderie has its own private parking in a site a short walk from the hotel. Parking is free with the 12 parking bays operating on a “first come, first served” basis. However with many one way streets in the town a sat nav system we used had difficulty in directing us to the hotel and car park. We parked in a public car park, walked to the hotel where we were given a map of the town and shown the best way to drive to the hotel and to the hotel car park. It is worth pointing out that the car park is accessed by a narrow road which passes through La Porte de Brunet an entrance to the previously walled town.

The receptionist gave us a warm welcome and checked us in without any fuss. The hotel has rooms in the main building and in a building across the narrow cobblestone road from the main building, formerly we understand, a Templar building. We were given a room in this building. We could not fault it. It seemed to be recently refurbished and had the original sandstone walls in places. The window shutters were painted with scenes from St Emilion. A novel and attractive decoration.

Our room for two had twin beds, an air conditioner, a flat screen wall mounted TV, telephone handsets, a bathroom with a bath tub and separate toilet facilities. The bathroom had sparkling white fluffy towels, two bars of soap and two packets of shower gel and tissues.

There was plenty of storage space for clothes and one cupboard was lockable, perhaps making up for the absence of an in-room safe. There was no mini bar but drinks could be purchased from a vending machine in the reception area.

Breakfast was not included in the room rate but could be purchased for an additional charge of 11 Euros per person. It was a typical continental breakfast served to you on an individual tray in the dining room. The quantity of food was sufficient and its quality was excellent.

Surrounding the hotel are numerous restaurants, however at peak times it might be necessary to book in advance at the more popular restaurants.

To our mind this hotel is worthy of more stars than the two it has. All of the staff we had contact with where friendly and helpful, the room was spotlessly clean and the location of the hotel could not be faulted. We were so impressed with the hotel that we made an unplanned stay at it a week later and again found no fault with the hotel.

We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel as an ideal place to stay in this delightful medieval town.

Room Tip: Ask for room in annex. Fantastic!

Hotel was clean and the bathroom was modern, room overlooked a vineyard. The breakfast was excellent, large pot of coffee and hot milk for each of us, soft boiled egg, croissant, fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, jam etc. The staff were extremely responsive and assisted in making dinner reservations for us on both nights we stayed. Everything in the village is walking distance. Free and secure parking While the beds are a little firm, we didn’t have any problem sleeping.

Perfect location in the city, excellent service, very friendly staff, middle class hotell but nice and clean. Nice bathroom, clean and volumnous, modern shower. The breakfast was excellent with a great variety, you did not miss anything.

Room Tip: The rooms in the annex from no. 21 is a little bigger and only slightly more expensive.

We arrived here on bicycles and stayed for 3 nights. It was everything we needed. Clean, comfortable, well-located in town and affordable. The staff was very helpful and the 16th Century was right outside our window. I saw a few reviews that were less than favorable, but I don't know why they would be.
