A hotel where you feel all the staff are wanting to please. Our room and especially the bath room were small, I suppose 'bijou' is the word, but tastefully decorated. Fantastic view over the Dordogne valley from the window. Comfortable bed, but toilet flushing and running water sounds from other rooms in the night woke me up. Varied menu and... More

Excellent hotel for the area (dordogne). Wonderful views of the valley. The restaurant was very very good. The chef is the owner of the establishment. His wife as host was kind and welcoming. They prepared an exquisite meal every time. We ate at their restaurant for 3 nights in a row and very satisfied. As a family of 5 we... More

Glorious views, truly exceptional. Great location within the town walls. Pleasant hostess and nice restaurant. Decor was dated but in keeping with Domme. Unique setting and nice stay. Note that there is not much open in winter but we didnt go for a night out on the town.

I just received a holiday video from Sophie at the Hotel Esplanade in Domme and was reminded that I've been remiss in not posting a review about our three glorious days there in May. For lovers of small country hotels like us, it's really hard to imagine a more perfect spot than this. You start with the fantastic setting --... More

I've stayed here a hundred times. I used to live in the region. It used to be a Michelin starred restaurant, but the establishment is still without a doubt one of the most picturesque settings in the Perigord!

"Few of life's pleasures can match sitting on the patio (of the Hotel L'Esplanade) at dusk with an aperitif while you drink in the honeyed tones of the evening shadows which creep overthe valley floor in that green-gold half-life"-- this is the description passed on by a friend that brought us to the L'Esplanade, and it is exactly right on....

We stayed in this lovely small hotel for three days on a half pension. The food was wonderful, the rooms simple but clean and cheerful, the view of the valley and river glorious. I especially remember the gorgeous copper coffee machine on the front porch and delicious coffee in big bowls. The staff had little English, but were friendly and... More

We reached Domme and l'Esplanade after a very long and tiring day on our tandem bicycle from Cahors. The setting could not have been better and was matched by the warm and professional welcome by the staff and family. It would be easy to simply trade on the position of this hotel--it has a 180 degree view of the Dordogne... More

The hotel has amazing valley views and is perched up on a cliff. The old fashioned service and attention to detail is lovely and it is not expensive. Highly recommend this hotel and the location there is lots to do and much to see in the area. And the food is great!!

There is no doubt that the view is spectacular and, in truth, its even possible this diverts some well deserved accolades from this excellent hotel. We enjoyed the view from our second floor room at the front - well worth having to lug your baggage up there - but be warned! The only negatives we had are that our room... More
