We searched trip advisor and came up with this accommodation and we were very glad we did. Up on a hill its a 5 minute walk to town ,though longer and uphill going home ,but you will need to walk off the food and alcohol. ! Comfortable room, warm congenial hosts and a lovely setting.

lovely location overlooking the old town and valley. We were early and our room wasn't ready, but we were able to wait on the terrace and the receptionist brought us a very welcome cup of coffee. In 15 minutes, we were welcomed warmly and shown to our room- there is a ramp around the back of the building to get... More

Like other commentators - the drive to the hotel is tricky, but with good gps it will get you there. The staff is delightful and once there everything in the town is walk-able. Take your time time coming back up the hill.

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
