We stayed two nights and agree with most aspects of the excellent reviews. Found the staff very helpful. It is located on a hill top in a new area. It's an easy walk down to the mediaeval town, but would be a hard walk back up for anyone who has difficulty with steep streets. We are reasonably fit seniors, but... More

can't complain. This was our first hotel in France this trip, we stayed for 2 days. It is just slightly out of the old part of town in a well kept comfortable residential area, a 10-15 minute walk; a bit hard to find (we drove past the sign on the way in and had to backtrack to find it; not...

We enjoyed our recent two night stop at the Hotel Bon Encontre. We had an excellent welcome upon arrival and we were given all the information we needed, including a map of Sarlat. The room was very clean, if a little small, but very adequate. The breakfast was very tasty and the omelettes were delicious. The location is fantastic for... More

This was a lovely hotel, extremely well presented. Very stylishly decorated, the room we stayed in was very comfortable. The swimming pool was a wonderful bonus to the holiday. Only a small hotel, so was very quiet. Free parking and WiFi. Only negative point was the walk back from the centre of town. We had read about the steepness of... More

This friendly and very restful hotel is atop a hill, a 2 min drive up from town. Its nice to be out of town actually and easy to drive down there and park and then walk. The service is wonderfully helpful and gave great restaurant recommendations. The rooms were big and inviting and comfortable with nice shuttered windows and nice... More

My husband, 12 year old daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights. We LOVED it! Everything about it was wonderful... the room, the service, the breakfast, the view. There was lots of room to park right outside the hotel. The staff were helpful in giving directions and offering restaurant choices. We were in a safe neighbourhood and enjoyed just... More

Finding this small hotel was a challenge but worth it. It is on a hill on the fringe of city center. Great views. Beautiful pool (if it is warm enough to swim.) We walked down to city center, had a nice day, then drove back up. So being away from downtown was not a problem.

A small hotel - well furnished, very clean, beautiful pool, very quiet. No balcony or terrace.. No lift and when I was leaving nobody could help me carry my heavy case down the stairs. Low staff numbers and there was no staff on the property between 8pm and 7 am. Because it is at the top of a steep hill... More
