Toulon, France
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for one night, and it was fine. Room is straight forward, comfortable bed and basic toilet amenities (Rain shower is just a plus). Calm and quiet right at the heart of the city center. Limited breakfast options on the buffet, but tasty. Would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

This is a very nice hotel in a beautiful location close to the cathedral, the river, restaurants and bars. The room was comfortable and the breakfast excellent. We were given a room upgrade to a comfortable suite with a jacuzzi in the bathroom. The only thing missing was a tea/coffee making facility.

The hotel is located at the end of a tiny one way cul de sac, however if you have booked the parking drive straight up let them know you have arrived and they will open the garage. You only have to reverse a few metres and drive in. The parking is very limited maybe 15 spaces so as the other...

On probably one of the coldest days and nights of the year, the hotel was welcoming, warm and comfortable. It is in the perfect location for seeing the sites of Saintes.

Its some months since we stayed at the hotel but we loved it and it made a really good stopover on our way back to UK. The location was excellent, right in the centre near great restaurants and shopping. Parking was secure but you need to pre book this as the hotel car park is small. There is other parking...

Short over night stop booked at the last minute - quick in and out, but all we could have wanted for that at a good price - clean, efficient, friendly check in - reception closed at 9pm but we were called by the receptionist who told us how to get in and were in fact greeted by a friendly member...

Booked a suite. Modern bathroom with a good shower, free wifi, and enclosed car park. The room is large and comfortable. Friendly & accommodating customer service. Breakfast is available. Saintes is a historic town next to the Charentes river. Important for Cognac.

We chose this hotel for our overnight stop en-route between SW France and the ferry at Caen. The good reviews persuaded us to choose this hotel but the reviews, from our experience, are misleading.

Dear Guest, After reading your comment, all our team remained amazed of such imagination! We understand that some people dislike classified historic building. Unfortunatly, this is one of our biggest advantages. The hotel is a former 17th century post house as described everywhere.
