Citotel des Messageries, Saintes
Interesting place for a stop-over
We stayed overnight here whilst driving from the Algarve to Cherbourg. It's right in the centre of the old town which makes it easy to see something interesting after a long drive. There is a car park which you have to book. Everyone very friendly and all spoke excellent English.

The best hotel in Saintes.
The best option, definitely the best hotel in Saintes. I was given the room No 23, which was very spacious and accommodating. The staff was extremely friendly - everyone spoke English. The location was just perfect. Right in the middle of many shops and restaurants. Breakfast was available at a very affordable price. Definitely will stay here again.

Quiet comfort in a market town
Brief 2 nights in Saintes at this perfectly located hotel. Hidden in the old streets of the town, a modern interior hotel with comfort and cleanliness making it a perfect stopover.

Overnight stopover
Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was pre-paid and the receptionist phoned at 8pm to offer us a code for access if we were going to arrive after 9pm. We arrived at 8.40pm and just managed to get in the garage which was then secure for the night.

Good value for money in the heart of town
Reception staff were very good organising a parking space for us. Room was comfortable and quirky though the shower had no curtain or door so tended to spray out all over the bathroom floor.
