As others have said it's convenient for the motorway, about halfway down France, it has a secure car park and there's a Carrefour nearby selling fuel at a decent price. What's more the restaurant has an interesting menu and excellent food. To my shame I must admit it was convenient speaking English to our friendly host, Dominique. Oh and the... More

Like many Brits we spend the summer months in France using quick and convenient budget hotels on the way down but we like to find more comfortable stopover hotels on the more leisurely trip home.

We thought this was a perfect choice for a stopover on the way south to the Dordogne. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable accommodation in the annexe, and the restaurant food was very good. A very quiet and peaceful setting ensures a good night's relaxation to prepare for the next leg of your journey. We would definitely use La Sauldraie again.

Three of us stayed at La Sauldraie on our way back north on our motorcycles and knew we'd chosen the right place when, even before we'd switched off, Benoit appeared in the 'abri moto' covered parking with stainless steel platters to place under our side stands.

A lovely welcome from Dominique when we arrived who showed us personally to our very comfortable room. A relaxed evening drink was followed by an excellent dinner and also a good selection for breakfast. We will definitely stay here again.

A most relaxing evening after a long journey. Welcoming and pleasant staff. Room spotlessly clean with pleasing decor. The food was excellent - beautifully but simply presented and delicious. We had such a pleasant stay that we have booked to stay there of our return journey to England. Looking forward to another pleasant evening and comfortable night.

Although every thing has to be allright, the feeling of 'coming home' is much more worth than luxury glamour. So was Hotel La Sauldraie for us. The hostess feels like a friend. I would advice every friend.
