My husband and I stayed here for two nights while visiting the Cognac region. One item that gets dicey in France is plumbing, specifically the shower. Our shower was among the nicest we've experienced in France. The breakfast provided by the hotel is rather meager given the price, but you can find plenty of food options within the town.

We fetched up outside this hotel in 2 cars after a long drive on a hot day, and Gary, whom I'd spoken to on the phone, directed our cars into the shade of the car park, and helped us with our bags. What a welcome! Our rooms were smart and comfortable, we found somewhere pleasant to dine that evening, we...

We didn't stay here, but went here all three days we stayed in Cognac. Catherine the concierge was a delight. She made us drinks and gave us advice. We had cool drinks everyday as it was hot outside. We are sorry we missed the bartender. I heard he was a hoot and very knowledgeable about cognac. Wish we had more...

Stayed here for the 5th straight year running and it still delivers. Secure parking, modern comfy rooms and an excellent breakfast. Location is first class and staff very friendly. We love hitting the indoor pool after a long drive and then always sleep sooo well. Now it should be said that is after a couple of excellent cognacs in their...

I was here in March this year, and it was just wonderful. Very kind and helpful staff, and a great location for exploring the town as well as the Cognac region. Rooms were modern and quie spacious, despite the beautiful old exterior of the hotel. I hope to one day return!

I am really pleased to have stayed here on one of three nights heading north back to Blighty. Everything from the welcome, the service, the breakfast, the rooms, the ease of parking, the range of cognacs in the bar (purely for research of course) was well thought out and well-delivered. I had contacted the hotel in advance - as requested...

Due to a breakdown we made an unexpected stay at this hotel for two nights. The hotel is in a fantastic position right in the centre of the town, but you cannot hear any traffic noise in the air conditioned rooms. The room we stayed in was beautifully appointed and very well maintained. Breakfast although not cheap at 18 euros...

We took a chance and booked this hotel for our short stay in Cognac and I was beyond pleased. Far from the "typical" cramped European hotel. The amenities were plenty with a very comfortable bed, bathroom, shower and beautiful classic shuttered windows that opened to the street below. The chic yet quaint village had everything within walking distance. The many...

A beautiful historic hotel that is well located. Lovely large rooms with a spacious bathroom. Very well located and an easy walk is possible through this historic city. Many good restaurants close by as well as coffee shops. A lovely place to stay.

A well furnished hotel. Friendly services. Breakfast is too expensive. Better to go outside to save at least 10 euro pp. Beautiful room. No noice and great parking. Nicely situated in the center. Everything is at walking distance. Some good restaurants in the neighborhood too
