Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a very convenient hotel in which to spend a night on our journey through this part of France. We were made welcome on our arrival, the room was adequately furnished and the bed comfortable. The attached restaurant provided us with a very good meal and, by choosing items from the menu of the day, we agreed tha it was good value for money. Useful if you are touring in this area.

We spent one night at the hotel on our way to Bordeaux. I knew we had a room “à l’etage” but we weren’t warned that access was by a very steep wooden staircase. No problem for us but care was needed. And it definitely wouldn’t be suitable for anyone unfit or with any mobility problems. The room itself was big, with a good-sized bathroom. The wi-fi didn’t work. We sat in the grounds after our arrival and enjoyed the surroundings. We were the only guests in the hotel and in the restaurant that evening. We had a lovely meal and the owner was friendly and attentive. Because of the history of the building I don’t see how access to the rooms could be improved, which is a shame.

This place could be wonderful but everything just isn't quite right. The ornamental fountain dominated by a big black plastic pond pump sums the place up for me. Our first issue was that we booked a room with two beds but we were then told that the room would have to be a double. So we paid more to get a room to sleep 3. But the extra bed felt rickety and unstable so we reverted to sharing the double bed. The hotel is not good for those with any kind of accessibility problems or infirmity. The entrance to the main road has a large conservatory affair perched on blocks which are a trip hazard for anyone. The rooms are up very very steep stairs so need to be taken with care. Then finally the meal was a disappointment. The chef clearly has some great skills: the traditional fish soup we were served was excellent, and meat was cooked to perfection. But some dishes just failed: e.g. scallops served with mango is a combination not to be tried again. Most dishes were given a liberal swirl of balsamic syrup as if it was supposed to show some kind of culinary flair. Staff were all very friendly although we felt the proprietor was a little over familiar with customers, and not much else except telling the staff how to do their jobs. We really can't understand how this place has got such high ratings from Logis. It may have been 'up there' at one time but it certainly wasn't the evening we stayed.

I stayed here one evening on my way through purely based on its convenient location just off the motorway. Well I got a lot more than I expected, the rooms are fantastic and extremely spacious, the wifi signal in the rooms is great with decent speeds, the people are very accommodating, and the meal served was very tasty including the expertise on cognac! I would definitely go again and would recommend this place to anybody going to this area

We stayed at this Logis hotel overnight on our way from Spain to U.K. It was built in the 1700's and converted into a hotel relatively recently. Each room has a theme, we were in the Mediterranean room, which was large, with an enormous ensuite bathroom. We were very comfortable. The restaurant is in the same beautiful building. The restaurant closes at 9:00pm and we realised we wouldn't make it in time due to traffic in Bordeaux. We called to explain and the chef waited so that he could cook for us! That's what I call customer service. We would definitely stay here again.

We found the hotel easily and we're delighted to find that I had booked the Bridal Suite although not yet married! A magnificent room with all mod cons. Lovely shower and enormous bathtub. However the highlight was the delicious meal served in the courtyard in the evening. I wish I had know about their swimming pool. It was well hidden in the grounds and the weather was perfect for a swim.

Arrived here, looks great, super easy to park. C'est bon! Stayed here for 2 nights in Room 2. The room is large and full of period furniture. Bed was comfy. Bath and hand shower only. Bath was lovely and deep. Unfortunately there is a fair amount of road noise even with windows closed. The hotel is on the road. Great building that has been done up and friendly and polite staff. The first evening meal was a slow starter and finisher. With 6 or 7/10 food at a good price. Breakfast was on time and attentive. The pool looked a tad green and as I'd only brought my board shorts, gave it a miss (if you don't already know, budgie smugglers are the preferred modestly protector in French piscines..) Noisy children and no poolside drinks service. A shame as I would have spent money there. There is a hottub by the pool that was working and was getting treatment as I was there. Overall a pleasant stay. The room and building being the strong points. Mixed clientele.

Perfect room for a reasonable price. Large bathroom and sitting area. Not far from the A10, just south of Saintes. Small village with a good bakery for some baguette the next day. You should have a dinner at the Restaurant under the same roof. Nice breakfast!

Stayed in a most beautiful hotel in a village named Thenac which is a lovely and charming french village. The hotel Domaine des Chas is situated just on the outskirts and is very accessible from the main road.We really enjoyed our stay there. Our hosts were most gracious and the rooms were lovely and spacious.The food was fabulous with a rich variety to choose from. The grounds of the Domaine were extensive and very will kept.All in all a great place to stay. mAURA

My wife and I and four teenage children stayed in two rooms at the Domaine Des Chais ,breaking our journey to the south east of France.We had originally booked a single night on our trip south , but as it was so pleasant we booked a night for our trip back,and then increased it two nights. The rooms were very comfortable with either and en-suite bathroom or shower room.The welcome was very warm and nothing seem too much trouble. We had a marvellous meal at the restaurant , and another night joined a n paella dinner which turned out to be a dinner dance-although our French was poor another marvellous evening.The welcome into this village group dispite the language barrier was incredible. The peace and tranquility (WI-FI for children) along with the heated pool and Jacuzzi was so relaxing , and a perfect way to break a journey.We are looking at three gites in the grounds for a future stay.
