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

Very pretty hotel on top of the hill just outside the lovely town of Sarlat. The hotel is walkable distance of the town centre but it is a steep walk back! The hotel is nicely decorated and a relaxing base to explore the area, large rooms, the biggest plus however is the excellent swimming pool and terrace which is perfect... More

We stayed for a week in August, and were glad we chose this hotel with its lovely pool to relax in at the end of the day. There was a shower and toilet in the corner of the pool area - great to have a hot shower after a dip. It was a shame there was no restaurant, but the... More

We stayed here in August for a night on our way home driving from Spain. This place is so peaceful and relaxing. The rooms where very comfortable and clean, the staff were very nice and breakfast was good. Our first time to Sarlat, its a lovely town. We would like to return one day but stay longer.

This hotel is fabulous. It’s a very beautiful, calm, comfortable place where everything works according to plan. The terrace is very comfortable. Everything is very clean. The staff is very friendly and service minded. Good breakfast. Big parking (which is a seldom luxury in this town). The centre of Sarlat is only a 10 minutes’ walk away. Highly recommended!

Great, quiet location just 10 minutes walk from the old town. Have a few drinks down there and you won't notice it's uphill all the way back ! Fantastic rooms - spotlessly clean. Friendly staff. Nice pool (where us Brits don't have to wear Speedo's !) Would love to go back again.
