stayed here for one night and would recommend it. good location just outside village of Salers but an easy 10 minute walk. Le Gerfaut has a lovely view of the village and surrounding countryside. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful, booking and recommending a restaurant for us in the village. The room was very large and clean and breakfast was... More

Clean and spacious, with separate toilet and bathroom, but the shower is over the bath, and there is no hook for the shower head, a blindingly obvious omission. The rooms don't seem to have been updated (though are maintained) since the hotel was built - in the 70s perhaps? The restaurant is much better. One dinner option is buffet starter... More

We arrived at the hotel after a long tiring journey from Barcelona. Although the last part of drive was on minor roads, the scenery was spectacular especially over the Pas de Peyrol and we made plans to climb le Puy Mary on the next day. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, as were their two large dogs. We enquired... More

The owner was welcoming on arrival. He offered a choice of rooms. We had a family room on top floor. We were 2 adults and 2 small children. The room was a fair 3* standard. The room was a little warm, but it was the hight of summer. With the window open the room cooled, but it was difficult to... More

Lovely family-run hotel on the edge of Salers - one of the most beautiful villages of France. Great pool and terrace which we made the most of after walking the volcanos of Cantal including an amazing ridge walk over the top of Puy Mary - even seeing wild marmottes and wild flower meadows. Hotel was comfortable and very clean and... More

As the previous guests have highlighted a wonderful hotel with marvelous views of Salers and Puy Mary. The swimming pool and sun terrace provide a relaxing and peacful way of unwinding after a hard day sight seeing and also helps to build an appetite that does the new owners culinary skills justice.Breakfast and dinner were equally scrummy and the cote...

The location, just outside The beautiful village of Salers, is ideal both to visit the village and to tour the area. Our room was spacious - even for 3, and spotless. The... More
