Having stayed here many years ago it made the perfect target for a lunch time stop. Situated just of the main street in this pretty little French town the restaurant (and hotel) are a welcome break from the motorway on the journey from SW to NE France. They have a good value priced lunch menu, with a choice of 3... More

An attractive building, friendly staff, and excellent food. But our recently refurbished bedroom had one major defect. The double bed was very narrow - I would guess 120cm or even less - much narrower than the fancy new headboard! I would advise twin beds after a long day's driving.

There are not many good places to stay on our regular long drives from the car ferry to the Pyrenees and this is our favourite, It is an old coaching in with rooms in a U-shape around a central courtyard where one can eat out in the evenings in summer. There are limitations as others have noted (disconcerting entrance, narrow... More

Stayed here as a stop over from the motorway. It was okay but not worth the 65 euros last minute walk in price. Looks quite appealing from the outside and better than it is on the inside. Inside the corridors are very dark and long which reminded me of corridors from The Shining. No natural light. Room was okay, clean,... More

We stayed here last week at the start of a cycling tour of Limousin. All the rooms are very thoughtfully decorated, sometimes on a theme. Our room was really lovely, with folk-art decorations, a huge shower and lots of hot water in a very nicely decorated bathroom, all tiles and pebbles. The room looked out over the courtyard and you... More

This is a 3 star hotel with character, rooms are basic but for a faimlu stopover with 2 adults and 2 children with breakfast for less than 100 € it was perfect. The restaurants in the square are a bit ropey and would eat in house. We didn't but food was 22€ for adults, so higher end.. But what you... More

Stayed here with friends on a motorcycling tour. What a great place to stay after a long day's riding! Staff very welcoming & helpfull. Room very well appointed in a traditional style & very comfortable. Evening meal in the courtyard was superb. Great food, wine & beer. Definately worth staying here if you are in this part of France.

We happened upon the hotel quite by chance and were absolutely delighted by the quality of the room -it appeared to have been recently renovated.The evening meal was an absolute delight-creative food and a young and attentive wait staff,One of the pleasant surprises of our month long meander through France.

First impressions are not bad: a pleasant old hotel with a pretty courtyard in which meals are served if the weather is fine. However, the entrance foyer is no more than a passage, bang next to the kitchens, and as other reviewers have said, the upstairs passages are ill-lit and tired. The bedroom was small and just about adequate( and... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to the Pyrenees. The hotel is in a charming little town not too far off the motorway. It's a beautiful old building with its own courtyard, lots of shutters and ivy and the like. We had a slightly gruff welcome from the owner/chef/maitre d, and were shown to our room which... More
