The other reviews will have told you a little of the risk of encountering a tense atmosphere among the personnel. This indeed varied between friendly and somehow hostile during our short stay. However, we ended up having a room upgrade (the hotel was not full) and a very pleasant stay. The village of Salers is great, at walking distance, very... More

Arrived at the hotel and it looked fantastic as we rode up. That all changed as we entered and tried to book in. Brittany Ferries had not supplied the right paperwork for the owner and his wife and they became very aggressive to us. They then started to argue between themselves making us very uncomfortable. Eventually rooms were allocated and... More

On arrival it appeared that our agent had not advised the hotel that one of our group had cancelled some weeks ago. Although not our fault the proprietor was quite unpleasant throughout our stay causing an unpleasant atmosphere. We ate in the hotel in the evening ordering coq au vin which was particularly recommended. What was served was dry and... More

This time we stayed a couple of nights in the middle of June 2015, having stayed here in June 2010, and we again received a very warm welcome. So nice that they now have their own restaurant with buffet style starters and deserts and very good main courses. The view of Salers from our room was delightful (although the weather... More

We stayed at the Hotel Le Gerfaut in August 2014. Perfect.... if you seek a quiet place with beautiful surroundings. We had the most warm welcome and introduction to Salers, the region and the regional food including wine by the owner of the hotel. Our room (#10) had just been restored. The bathroom, as well. Pleasant colours and interior design.... More

Damien the owner was very helpful in helping us choose the itinerary for the following days; castles ans old churches galore. Roads that never stop turning and cows everywhere.... More

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
