Best Western Poitiers Centre Le Grand Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Compared to most european hotels the Best Western presents premium accommodations. For Americans this may seem unusual as Best Westerns are typically 2.5 stars but in France they are 3 to 4 stars. This one has suites with King Size beds which are a rarity in a land of bouble beds. Great location in the center if town and parking located downstairs.

Wanted a city centre hotel that offered on site parking as I was on a motorbike. Parking was fully secure, which was great. Ideal location less than 500 yards to central square. Hotel was clean and spacious with very pleasant and helpful staff. Ideal for an overnight stop. So easy to find off the main road into Poitiers.

We arrived around 6pm to a warm welcome and swiftly went to our room but there was no mattress protector we mentioned this to reception on our way out and on our return upgraded to a superior room with protecter. The rooms come with automatic shutters and the windows open to allow a lovely courtyard fresh air! We literally slept for England with 10 hours of the best bliss sleep ever had in a hotel ! The underground car park is right next door and worth the €7. The room was a little tired but the bedding was lovely and white and bed very comfy. Would we stay again - definitely just the rest we needed after the drive from the euro tunnel.

Very good hotel right in the city centre. This hotel does exactly what it says on the tin. Very clean and comfortable room for the money. Very friendly receptionist who was very polite and helpful. The hotel was quite difficult to find and if it makes any sense try and approach it from the east as all the city centre streets are pedestrian only. The hotel parking is great and right under the hotel. The restaurant almost directly across the street is fantastic and very reasonable priced.

The rooms here are clean with everything you need, including a fridge and kettle, which is unusual for french hotels. It is right in the centre near lots of restaurants and the sights of Poitiers. To get there you are told to follow the signs to the hotel de ville carpark. This is easy to follow and we parked there. It is right next to the hotel and worked out a couple of euros cheaper than the hotel carpark for a night. There is also a small supermarket nearby and plenty of breakfast places if you do not want to eat at the hotel.

Fabulously located in the heart of Poitiers. A well appointed, city hotel. Staff all professional, and mostly multilingual. A good value breakfast which can be taken, in fair weather, on a sunny terrace. Poitiers is, like so many towns and cities in France, easy to drive past/through without realising how many extraordinary features it includes. If driving do ensure you Pre book parking, or risk having to reverse out of the ramp to the hotel parking!!

I booked this online during a very last minute trip to Poitiers. There isn't much choice in the way of charming inns in this small city but I can attest to their very good central address, cleanliness of rooms and friendliness of staff. The parking was full when we arrived but the municipal parking garage is literally next door and .40 € cents per hour. The room (especially for the 100€ we paid) was large, very quiet and clean, although the public areas need a bit of an update and a musty spell pervaded the hallways. We did not try any of the f&b outlets.

My wife and i stopped in here as a pit stop in the middle of a road trip. The room was clean, modern, updated. The bathroom was big and bright. The hotel itself was conveniently located in the old part of town, walking distance to shops and restaurants. It was good.

We are on our way from Rocamadour to La Baule-pit stop here. In room 312, very clean, queen size bed, great location. Happy overall. 86 Euros includes parking but only if you have a tiny car. I would recommend.

We stayed overnight en route back to the UK from France and it did the job. Our room was absolutely fine, a nice big bed which was very comfortable but nothing special. The bathroom was a little dated with a very small shower and a separate toilet which was a bit at odds with the rest of the room which seemed more modern. The receptionist who checked us in couldn't have been more helpful and overall the hotel is good. It has underground secure parking which was welcome and is smack bang in the middle of the old town so was walkable to the main parts. There are lots of bars and restaurants directly outside the hotel so you will not be short of choices.
