This is probably the worst hotel we have ever stayed in Europe. It must have been grand once but it is definitely in decline. The exterior is dirty and grungy, the carpets are worn and dirty and the whole atmosphere is dark and dingy. Our room was tiny with a hole in the wall behind the door. To be fair,... More

I was not expecting such a huge space in the suite. Really comfortable for us and our 2 small kids. Breakfast location in the cave is not nice as they were a lot of insects. We had a good dinner in the restaurant!

The hotel was perfect for our night stay in Brive. The staff were extremely helpful. Our "Grand Chambre" was large and comfortable, the bath room was good sized, counter space for a ladies essentials, a commodious tub. Parking is easy on site, and the location is perfect for strolling in the center, shopping, and going to good restaurants. Breakfast was... More

Stayed at this hotel for three nights and loved it. Close to everything with restaurants and coffee shops nearby. There is an ATM next door with good rates should you need cash. The hotel is old but with great charm. Breakfast was average for France, but enjoyable.

We agree with several of the other reviews here in that this is a genuine 3 star old style French hotel. It has charm and old style elegance, but for some it might look and feel a bit too 'old style' and not slick enough. i love it, and find the staff although some look a bit austere, extremely helpful...

We found the rooms clean and neat witha good comfortable bed. The air con is only average buts works satisfactorily. there was no street noise . The staff were helpful, courteous... More

La Truffe Noire is an attractive building situated in the heart of the old centre of Brive. We stayed 3 nights whilst attending a rugby match. The reception and the dining/breakfast areas were very traditional with a large fireplace which was lit in the morning and the evening making the whole space very warm and welcoming. We were put in... More
