Domme is a charming little village that empties out at night, and it's worth staying at l'Esplande to watch the sunset over the Dordogne Valley and walk the quiet streets after the day trippers leave. Our second floor room did not have a view of the valley (but what could we expect, reserving only two days ahead of time through... More

This is a charming hotel on the very edge of the hill town of Domme, with spectacular views of the Dordogne River and countryside below. It has a lovely garden patio with shade trees, where people love to have a drink before dinner. The restaurant is very good, serving "beautiful food", tasty and with lovely presentations. We had a more... More

A beautiful, quaint, extremely comfortable hotel that I would definitely go back to. Sophie at the front desk is delightful, extremely polished, warm, generous and helpful. She went miles out of her way and requested her own family and friends to give us a ride to and from Sarlat. Who does that?!! Our room was lovely, bathroom gleaming and modern.... More

We stayed for one memorable night at the hotel. The hotel is right in the centre of Domme. There's no free parking but there are parking bays a short distance away. The rooms are quite small but manageable. The restaurant was very good - it's the reason to stay with an amazing views over the river we sat on the... More

Hotel L’Esplanade in Domme is truly a wonderful hotel! While we had visited Domme frequently over the years, for some reason we had never stayed here. This was an error I intended to correct on our current French trip. And wow, I am so glad we did! We had reserved room 15 because it had “the view” of the Dordogne... More

In full concurrence with review of Nov. 14. While the rooms themselves are nothing special the view from the ones overlooking the valley is spectacular. The rooms are well priced. The problems began after we made it clear we were not going to be eating at their very expensive (but likely ver good) restaurant. From that point the attitude of... More

The location and the view from the hotel was exceptional. Domme itself is perched on the top of the hill and the hotel is nicely located on the edge of cliff looking out to the valley. We could see the Dordogne river all the way to La Roque Gageac from our room. Service was great and personal. Very comfortable room.... More

Stayed three nights here on our visit to the Dordognne region. Excellent location...central to all and a welcoming place to return to after a full day of exploring the area. The view from the hotel looks like a Hollywood backdrop...it is exquisite....surreal. The owner, Sophie, was a joy. She loved to talk to is, was proud of her establishment and... More

Hotel l'Esplanade sits on the cliffs overlooking the Dordogne valley giving incredible views for guests and diners. The hotel demonstrates the very best of what visitors to France hope to find; friendly staff, great food and attention to detail throughout the hotel. No arrogant or cigarette smoking waiters here! The owners and staff obviously have a lot of pride in... More
