A 3-star Qualité TourismeTM* hotel

The comfort of our guests is our top priority, which is why we use a quality approach recognised by the Qualité TourismeTM* certificate since June 2005 and many French and foreign tourist guides have referenced the value of our services:

Our 3-star hotel is part of the Citotel network which includes 200 independent hotels in France bound by the Tourism Quality charter.  For our guests, it is the guarantee of a personalised welcome, an excellent quality-price ratio, quality monitoring with regular checks and a town centre location.  Citotel is also a free-of-charge and commitment-free loyalty card offering guests benefits after 3 stays in hotels part of the charter.

We have chosen to be signatories to the Eco-Citizen Trade charter®, a commitment to favour local commerce, respect the environment and preserve local economic development while defending social ethics.

We have developed a service aimed at meeting our guests’ needs with a warm welcome adapted to each person.  

Authenticity and character, a charming hotel

We invested in an old post house dating back to the 17th century and preserved its historic character to make it the elegant and charming hotel it is today.  In the centre of Saintes, you can enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay at our hotel, not far from the banks of the Charente.  You can enjoy peaceful and quiet nights here, you can discover all that Saintonge’s capital has to offer and have a pleasant stay in this region rich in surprising discoveries.
