What can I say? Beautiful rooms in an old style. Good breakfast. Swimming pool. Nice people that work there.The hotel is close to both food, restaurants, shopping and the big cognac distilleries. Nice stay indeed.
Arriving in Cognac for a property finding trip, we whilst en route booked a 3 night stay at the Francois.. We were pleasantly greeted by Gary who was heading front of house that day and it was a delight to meet him. Each and every hotel would and could only benefit from his manner, attentitivness, professionalism, and appearance. The hotel benefits from high quality rooms, overall experience was exceptional and the decor outstanding. Situated in the very Center of town, surrounded by restaurants and brassiere’s this made for stress free evenings. Travelling very frequently in that area of France, this will now be my go to hotel of choice. I/we have given this hotel a 5 star review for a very good reason…
I stayed at Hotel Francois Premier recently for over a week while on business with several colleagues. The hotel is in an excellent location on the main square of Cognac city center. The hotel is beautiful and very well maintained. Front staff were very friendly and attentive. My room was a nice size, fully equipped and had 2 nice windows. What I liked - Very comfortable bed - Super efficient AirCon - Very quiet - Kettle - Great bathroom with rain shower - Breakfast was high quality with many choices and excellent scrambled eggs - Umbrellas to borrow To Improve - The hotel WiFi for the rooms was broken for the entire time of my stay. My colleagues informed me it was broken for a few weeks - Our entire team ending up purchasing SIM cards with large data included to be able to work from our rooms - No one at the hotel ever reached out to me to offer any kind of compensation for the WiFi situation NOTE: There is limited hotel indoor parking for a fee, but free outdoor parking is very close by…
This was a last minute booking and we were very lucky. A thorough classic where things are done properly, seamlessly and with panache! If you are looking for somewhere to stay then choose this…. It even has a beautiful cathedral of a car park!
The hotel is perfectly located within walking distance of all of Cognac highlights. The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was very good with a little quirk: very British fare like lemon curd and Marmite on offer which is unusual in France. Quiet, spacious rooms with nice big comfortable beds. Didn't experience the bar, sadly, but it seemed very cosy.
Quiet, very well presented, I’ve stayed here before and liked it on both occasions. Well located for restaurants breakfast was extra but good. Car was able to be charged on the EV chargers in the parking . I do not need to be commanded to provide 200 characters for this review.
Best place to stay i Cognac. The suite was perfect, and the friendly and loving staff made it all perfect. For me, the only place to stay whenever i am in Cognac. The location is perfect, in the heart of Cognac. Walking distance to everything. Highly recomended!
Very nice Hotel. Super service and nice staff Who gave us an exellant experiance in Cognac Good brekfast and perfect location. Cleen rooms and good accomandations at the hotel. The staff had good knowlege of restaurants and the area around.
We only got to enjoy this hotel for 2 nights, but we really loved our stay. The location is very central to everything, the restaurants, the pedestrian area and the Cognac houses. We loved our room on the third floor. It was very nice size, with comfortable hard beds and wonderful shower. There is a nice bar attached to the hotel, and also a nice spa (which we did not get a chance to experience), and a small fitness room. They have 2 different breakfast plans. Small breakfast (hot drink and pastries) for 9 Euros, and full buffet breakfast for 19 Euros. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating, especially Garry, who spoke excellent English and was very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return to Cognac and this hotel.
The hotel is perfectly placed. Most of the interesting sites in Cognac and in walking distance. The hotel is a refurbished hotel with modern amenities. Airco is very good. Rooms are well done and comfortable. On the down side, the toilet is so low that it looks like it was made for children. The bath shower sprays water all over the place since it cannot be tilted. Breakfast is good, with ample choice. Covered parking is a blessing when the hot sun is out. They have just installed 4 EV chargers. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
