Dinner was good Not clear that hotel was close to station but up a very steep slope
Personnel de l hotel Non
Very short stay but comfortable in a good position in the centre of a nice city.
Good breakfast, excellent location, good parking facilities Rooms were small and furniture was old and badly needs updating.
location is excellent, good value for the money. Had stayed there the previous week and was very pleased with the staffs friendliness This time when I booked, I had requested the reception to make dinner reservations for us at a restaurant which has good seafood that iswithin walking distance. When we arrived, the lady at the reception stated they had not made reservation after all "we don't know what you like to eat" Generally, staff was not as friendly as the previous weekend, When we were in the lobby bar (Internet hook up there) staff was too busy socializing with each other to attend to our drink orders
Good location, easy on site parking comfortable rooms, good value for money and good value breakfast
Perfect waiter service with our evening meal. including a formidable wine recommendation! I would have liked my stay to be longer
Staff was extremely friendly, secure parking, great location ,,,liked it so much, am planning on staying again this weekend for my trip back to Belgium Beds could have been more comfortable, breakfast for 14 euros was a bit overpriced for what there was to offer, however the good definitely outweigh the few neagives
Helpful staff and a very pleasant although standard "big hotel chain" room. Comfortable and clean, with good bathroom facilities. Good location just opposite Les Halles and an easy walk to local shops, restaurants, tourist sites etc. Nice gardens overlooking the lower parts of the city - which in truth aren't all that pretty! Decent breakfast. We would have liked to take our breakfast outside in the gardens but all tables had been used by the time we came down and they weren't being cleared very fast. No doubt had we asked a able would have been cleraed but there seemed to be only one preson on breakfast duty looking after several sets of guests
The staff very friendly and accomodating. Front desk staff can speak English well. Lobby, common areas, restaurant very nicely renovated and clean. Rooms older and in need of some care, but were very clean. Although not spacious, our room was very liveable. Can walk to all sorts of shops and restaurants right out front door. Can walk (uphill about 8 minutes) from TGV train station if you know your way around. Felt safe in this hotel. Enjoyed our stay very much.
Very friendly staff Room a little dark and decor tied
Friendly atmosphere clean and neat Could do with a few more hooks for hanging things on E.G. for drying towels
Hotel stuff was very helpfull, guided us to city centre for food without even asking for it! Excellent wi-fi connection, best one we have had during our month long trip.
bad location, right on a roundabout, no air conditioning in rooms, you need the window open in hot weather then you can't sleep from the noise of the traffic. one steak restaurant within 10 min walk anything else you have to use the car. lots of retail around if you want to buy a car or furniture. pleasant staff but thats all.
Friendly and helpful staff. The water from the cold tap was warm even after running the tap for 10 minutes or so. It made drinking the water impossible. Not a very nice location in AngoulÃªme.
Clean. Nice walk along river nearby. Very dark and depressing decor. Corridor pitch black until you fumble around and find light switch! Nowhere to eat within walking distance. Noisy. On busy road. No tea and coffee making facilities.
Pleasant, helpful receptionist. Noisy road outside.
Excellent for an overnight stay on a long motoring journey. The twin room and en suite bathroom were very good and very quiet considering we were facing a moderately busy suburban roundabout. The continental breakfast was very good indeed and the gentleman on reception was very pleasant and couldn't have been more helpful struggling with his english and me struggling with my french. Needed a car journey to reach the centre of Angouleme for restaurants, sight seeing, etc., but car parking free for first half-hour before 18.30 & entirely free after.
The range of food for breakfast was excellent and the bathroom facilities very good. The only negative comment would be the location in relation to the centre ville. It is a 20-30 minute walk.
Excellent concessionaire extremely helpful
Excellent stay. We were staying only one night, but we really enjoyed it. Fantastic old style hotel in the countyside. Will call back again in the future!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel - the room was large and comfortable and was very good value with helpful staff and a smashing swimming pool with all the facilities. No.
Beautiful hotel,good location on outskirts of cognac,good size rooms,we were given upgrade because hotel was nearly empty,nice pool but couldnt get into it as gate locked! Lovelly surroundings. booked this hotel for its restaurant,told it was full but they would book us another gourmet restaurant.On arrival nothing was booked because it was sunday and theirs was in fact closed, think they told us this so we didnt cancel booking.
the service and cleanliness could have had a better breakfast
A completely comfortable and relaxing break with a lovely room overlooking the river For hotel of this type, wi-fi free should be in every room and breakfast too expensive
Clean and quiet. Breakfast excellent
The nice, newly decorated room.
We used this hotel as an overnight stop but restaurent was not available at weekend, only breakfast. This info should be made clear. There appears to be only one other eating place within easy walking distance.
Newly refurbished, clean room. Great bathroom & shower. Very good breakfast included. Staff seemed new & unsure of what to do at times. Dinner was not the best quality & expensive.
1) The hotel never heard of me when I arrived,in spite of my booking through you.2) The price offered was exactly the same as your "rebate offer" Could not get breakfast served in the room. Very poor wine list with no red Bordeaux available. I shall no longer use your services.
Clean room with small balcony, could be a little noisy due to traffic. Slightly further from town centre than anticipated.
The proximity to the centre of town. It was easy to walk in. I also liked the fact that they had a free carpark. The bread at breakfast time was not as good as most French bread we have had in other hotels.
Friendly staff, decent rooms
Nice and clean, good location. Good value for money. Some of the staff were very nice and helpful. Unable to check out 1 hour later upon request, without getting a reason as to why. The receptionist, aka the owner, did not book our taxi as per our request and therefore we nearly missed our train. She did however drive us down to the station in the end.
Comparable to U.S. motel room. Air conditioned, lift, balcony, parking, and nice people.
Quite a way out of town
location...good price... welcoming staff..eager to help!! the receptionist even gave as a city map and explained everything. the parking on the back is a huge plus! The room was small for 3 people, the carpet was dirty, the hotel needs a renovation, the Wc has no ventilation. We ordered for a coffee the first morning and they charged as 4 breakfast as they brought breakfast that we havent asked for!!carefull about this!
The room had a balcony and a market down the street. Parking in back. The neighborhood was average - a bit of a hike to the sites.
Excellent and friendly staff, comfortable rooms with galconies to the rear. Convenient parking make this very convenient for an overnight stop. Air conditioning is the only missingitem for mid-summer comfort.
It was in need of some renovation
Good location and easy check-in Nobody to assist during breakfast despite there being a shortage of food and drink. Also the dirty trays were not removed.
More like a motel but ok value for an overnight pitstop only!
Adequate room was clean and well appointed for a budget hotel. Good shower better than most. We were not told that we had to book for a meal in the restaurant on the Saturday evening. After a lot of persuasion the staff did let us have a platter of food.
An attractive setting, as pictured on the website, offsets the motel-style building. Check-in and check-out were efficient. The restautant offered an attractive buffet-style hors d'oeuvre and dessert once we had worked out the menu. The entrance to the hotel was not easy to find. This was partly because the map on the website is wrong - the hotel is on the East side of the N10 where the map shows it on the West.
Staff were friendly and efficient Too close to major road - traffic noise all night
Tea and coffee supplied in room.Very clean
The owner was charming and most helpful.
Good location and handy having eating place next door. Room very comfortable and clean. Would stay again en - route to Spain. No tea and coffee facilities in rooms.
Clean, close to the motorway and reasonably priced. Unfortunately now there are no evening meals served at this hotel. After a long drive it is very inconvenient and may make you think about staying at another hotel.
Convenient to the motorway and a comfortable stay
Stayed in Ibis hotels before so what we expected. Clean but basic. Comfortable bed. Difficult to find with little or no signposting on a large commercial estate. No restaurant so we were directed to the Etap hotel next door. The food was poor and expensive.
Room was small, but comfortable. Excellent attentive and professional staff. The front desk arranged our cognac tasting and tour at Hennessy and Otard, both of which are walking distance. They also recommended excellent nearby restaurants. On-site breakfast was very good, setting is picturesque.
The pool and breakfast facilities were good. We were in the region for a wedding. We were supposed to receive a bottle of cognac from the couple who were getting marrie dbut these were never put in our room and never passed on to us. Unacceptable.
This was our second and more thorough visit to cognac. It is a beautiful town and we had several good meals in town with taxi back to the hotel. The hotel was very comfortable with excellent and helpful staff. The breakfast was very enjoyable and of good quality. The couple that we were travelling with would also agree. Slightly remote from the town therefore more conspicuous information is needed with regard to where buses or taxis can be obtained - especially for non french speakers. We have good french so this was not a problem for us but would be for non french speaking customers
Very quite and good to rest I think the information about driving to your hotel should be reviewed and GPS points given. The toilets next to your restaurant do give a the best smell, this was said to your staff but we only got a smile.
Plastic as matresscover
When we arrived there had been heavy snow and the car park which is down a slope had not been sanded and was very slippery for both walking and a car
Friendly - good solid 3 star hotel. This is is excellent as a stop-over hotel as its in the business/industrial area I would not use it a main holiday hotel
Rooms not bad Again this Mercure proved to be disappointing. The web-site claimed to have a restaurant - but this was an overprice snack bar. We were booked in for 2 nights but cancelled the second night
pool wasdte in bins as we arrived in room. Insufficient toiletres
Swimming pool was very nice after a long journey. Staff very friendly.
Friendly staff and very clean facilities None
Welcoming,comfortable, very convenient for city centre.Relaxed atmosphere.
Te excellent people running the business, very friendly and helpful Leaving!
THe convenience of the location to the city centre The bed was very hard!
The staff was helpful and the breakfast buffet was good. The room smelled of mildew and was very basic. There was mold in the shower. It felt like a very cheap motel room in the US.
Good location - walking distance from town centre and other attractions, such as Cognac houses. Air-conditioning in rooms. Parking was readily available. Rooms clean and tidy. Staff helpful and friendly. Rooms were very small indeed, but acceptable for a one-night stay in our case.
convenient for town, private parking breakfast although continental as expected, was rather mean.
Nice room, superb staff, reasonable walking distance to heart of old town and its attractions. Not the easiest to find even though there are the usual small hotel signs. Must pay for public parking near the hotel. Hotel`s paid parking worth the cost, but not much of it.
great location, parking close by, free after 5.30pm
great service, nice, clean room, super owner
Good location. Superb staff and management, very helpful and service minded. No complaints what so ever. Nice quiet hotel, not much room for party and noise.
Having travelled internationally on business and holdays for many years, I have stayed in all sorts of hotels and this one has to be my favourite. It is not too large to be impersonal, and not too small to lose the grand style of a country house. The staff and owners had just the right balance of professional courtesy and warmth, the room was excellent - no problems with size and we weren't swinging any cats around. The food was superb, the house and the setting of the place absolutely delightful. All prices were very resonable considering the high quality. Yes, I was disappointed that in the information about the hotel no mention is made that the Remy Martin family built and owned this house in 1855 and only sold it 20 years ago.
Everything, lovely lounge bar and cognacs. lovely spot.
Basil and Sybil are alive and well and running a hotel in Cognac......!!!!! Fawlty Towers had nothing on this place. In a 3 week trip around France this was, unfortunately, the only hotel that did not come up to scratch. Beautiful from the outside, the inside is in desperate need of renovation and modernisation. At least the bathrooms could do with a good clean. On arrival we were told that we had been "upgraded" free of charge to a superior room from our booked double. I would love to have seen the room we should have got, if this was "superior"! A bed that was no bigger than a slightly oversized single, broken toilet seat, mould in the bathroom, no hot water past 9pm and a room so small you banged your knees on everything. Disappointing.
Received a very warm welcome and good service. Room was pleasant and restaurant was very good. The Domaine itself is charming with a pool and grounds. It is not far from the centre of Cognac (25 min walk). The only slight criticism is that the restaurant and bar were closed on Sunday. Otherwise, a very good visit and shall certainly, stay there again. The restaurant and bar closed on Sunday.
Nice area , very quiet
We stayed 3 nights and were delighted with everything abut the hotel. We will definitely use it again. Monsieur and Madame were charming and the accommodation superb. We did not eat dinner because we were visiting family nearby but next time we shall definitely book in. Nothing.
The hotel had a very friendly atmosphere. The staff were helpful and always available to answer our questions - particularly on the subject of Cognac. There was a large amount of furniture in our room. A very large table at the window and a large armchair which limited space.
The opportunity to stay in such a beautiful building
Staying there the second time, will stay again. Lovely garden and swimming pool, very clean rooms, tea and coffe facilities in the room, free wifi and parking. Poor breakfast
the room was very large and the views spectular the food seemed to be substandard for the hotel atmosphere
Staff had little english, but went out of their way to help us. Good restaurant nearby. N/A
clean and tidy, it was also easy to get to did not like the bolster type pillow, the shower had no bracket to hold the head. this made it difficult to have a shower.
Very friendly staff. Great breakfast served in the room. Very close to restaurant for all budgets.We were there for 2cv Rally and the hotel was a really nice surprise!!! The bathrooms had too little room.. Showers were handheld.
friendly staff and service, very helpful
Clean Well attended for Cleaning/Towels/Bedding (Done Daily) Good Continental Breakfast served in room Good Shower Bathroom rather cramped, but otherwise no complaints
