“In the heart of Saint Emilion”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

The Hotel is very well located for easy access to the main areas of Saint Emilion. Rooms are well appointed with toiletries supplied. Breakfast was of very poor quality, hardly worth bothering with. Otherwise the food for both lunch and dinner was of a very good standard.

Value for money, price is based on location, has its own private garage for parking just opposite.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

We were very well greeted by CHARMAIN who is a very pleasant person . The " chef de cuisine " is , also very efficient person . Unfortunately , some of details show imperfections . . Butthe atmosphere , the small garden and the swimming pool exist for us to forget these small details

We occupy more and 37, what struck us is the poverty of the products offered in the bathroom, no slippers to evolve in the junior suite or in the small courtyard or bathrobe. (I had to cover myself with a bed cover to keep warm). Possibility of smoke in the courtyard. The elevator is stuck all night (we do not know why we can not use it) and I, who get up early, I struggled to climb 2 floors leading to my room (lung problems). Apart from that, it is well located ( central )

Room Tip: Suite 37 if they put sleepers , robe and more toilet products which are poor for the moment .

These people have not gotten the word that being polite to tourists is part of the job.
If you want our money you can smile and give service. Don't leave people standing in the rain when you close your doors.

The staff have been super friendly, there was a mix up with our eating arrangments pre booked with another company and it was sorted in 2 seconds. The duck meal was devine! Rooms are my kind of size and my kind of taste. Clean and functional. Good nights sleep. Furniture keeps n style with the Unesco heritage theme. I give applause to the hall way lighting being on sensers, therefore saving power. Modern bathroom. Great garden. The waiter/reception even started to teach us a little more french. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Suitable for enjoying the sites and spending your hotel time sleeping. Wifi is included.

Reviewed 9 January 2014

we were here with a VBT group. The room was small, dirty and we had to buy lavender to deal with the musty moldy smell. The staff was unpleasant. Our room opened onto the cobblestone street so even with it being 87 degrees in the room you had to choose between sweating or hearing loud traffic all night. Ended around 2 AM and started back up around 4 AM. Yep- I was up all night.

Good location close to village center. Rooms are small although we had a balcony, overall its a bit tired. In saying that the grounds and gardens with pool are good. We got a friendly welcome and waitress at breakfast was polite and helpful, unlike her male collegue who rude to the point of being agressive. Sometimes staff in these hotels seem to forget that without tourists they wouldn't have a job!!!
