We have visitd St Emilion several times but this is the first time we have stayed overnight (well 3 nights actually) in the town. From previous visits for refreshments we knew the hotel is a little dated, however the facilities are fairly good. It is in a good location at the top of the town close to a large open car park and the hoteloffers fairly secure parking at 15 euros a day of whichwe availed. I say fairly secure since on a couple of times the secure door broke and so was left open. We were disappointed that the hotel bar was only open during one evening of our 3 night stay making it feel a little characterltess, especially since we didn't want to spend too much time in our small room. Our room was a corner room which was almost illed by the bed, which overlooked the car park and the main road and had a small funtional bathroom with the worlds smallest bath with hand held shower. The room was adequate for our stay, albeit lacking the wow factor, however in fairness we had reserved the lowest category of room and so it met our expectations. We slept quite well since the room was very quiet despite being on the main road. I was woken every morning by the delightful smell of breakfast being prepared in the kitchen which must have been below our room, lovely smelling baked goods. We didn't actually take breakfast in the room since we preferred to have a light breakfast in the town at a fraction of the price (it wasn't included in our room rate. Staff were always pleasant and courteous when available.
