Bed really comfy, slept soundly, good value for money for an over night stay when travelling through, good choice for dinner and breakfast and not bad on the price. Location was a bit tricky to find as the address states "route de Royan" but comes up on the sat nav as "rue de Royan" but found it in the end. Gentlemen on reception very welcoming. Waitress in hotel polite but very quiet and seemed quite rushed off her feet, think she could of done with a little help. The space around the bed in the room needs to bigger on one side in the room I stayed in especially when heavily pregnant! But overall, I would rate it as good for the type of stay needed.
We were expected but had to wait some time for someone to come and open the door for us to book in. We were handed the controls for the fan and TV and sent round with a key and instructions to get into our room. Access was via one door with a code into a corridor then a normal key to open our room. The place is shabby and the no smoking room smelled of cigarette smoke .. A plus for the place was the next door restaurant where we had a very good meal. We would not stay there again
Very friendly and accommodating staff, quiet, colourful and quirky rooms. The hotel is in a great position in the centre of the old city close to bars and restaurants... We would definitely stay again!
This hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the historical old centre of Angouleme. Staff are cheerful and friendly and, having spotted my woeful French, happily spoke to me in English! The hotel has a bit of a 70s feel to it, a bit dated but clean enough. My only moan would be that the walls were thin and every door closing / shower running / loo flushing seemed to echo through the corridors.

The L'Epi d'Or Hotel, renovated in 2010, is situated in Angoulême, 50 metres from place Victor Hugo square with its shops and …More
Clean room, great shower, very modern. Free tea and coffee in reception (bonus in French hotel), really good breakfast with fresh fruit, good bread and parties, live yoghurts, and bets of all, freshly squeezed orange juice!
This hotel was adequate for an overnight stop. The staff were lovely, there is a outdoor swimming pool which was a bonus, the kids loved it. The decor in rooms and corridors need updating with a view to use a warmer colour scheme.
The hotel is about 30 minutes walk from the centre, but it's ideal for those who like to have chateau experience. There's a great cognac bar right behind the reception with a selection of over 150 cognacs including the rare ones. So if you are tired from driving, just have a dinner in the hotel and relax in the bar afterwards. The staff is very friendly and happily telling you about cognacs, the difference between different brands and production.
