I booked this place for a group of friends as we had a wedding to attend nearby. I booked it because it was cheap and had access to the river. We weren't disappointed. The location is stunning and the reception was very warm and welcoming. Meryl and Chris were lovely hosts and really looked after us. One (very small) downside... More

Booked this b&b on the strength of some good reviews but was very disappointed. I do agree about the lovely riverside location and the rerception by the owner. But the room although a good size was very stark with only minimal furniture not even a small table of any sort. The place is layed out and run more like a... More

The hotel is located on the bridge with a rather marvellous view of the river from the garden. More of a hotel than a B&B. Meryl and Chris, an English couple bought L’Escale 10 years ago because it was run down and “cheap”. The project to renovate it is obviously taking longer than they anticipated. In May 2013 they had... More

This is the second time we have stayed with Chris and Meryl James at Escale. They top our list of favorite hosts in all our years of travel. Their friendliness, intelligent conversation, travel tips and big hearts made us feel like family. Chris is an excellent chef, and his duck confit, steaks cooked on stones and tasty pizza were our...

stayed at the beginning of may for a few days for a wedding in the local Chateaux... Meryl put up with a lot, considering we were such a rowdy bunch. Great stay, great food (hot stone was excellent) and perfect hosts. thank you!

By the end of my stay we all felt like family. They went way beyond the call of duty to make us feel at home. Would recommend to anyone. The food was also excellent - great steak and big fat prawns. :-)

Happened upon this restaurant recently, between the villages of Siorac-en-Perigord and Coux-et-Bigaroque. Good selection of French dishes - and excellent pizzas for those in a hurry. Best of all, in the dusk of the evening, was the view down the river Dordogne and the families out fishing and relaxing. Will definitely revisit, when we return in the spring for a... More

Ate here on our first night staying in a house in Siorac and it turned out to be our most expensive meal over the whole holiday. The food is good but not great and you can get far better value else where. The buffet starter choice could be better, and you cook your meat yourself as it is served on... More
