Travelling south this was a one night stopover that we would be happy to repeat. Easily accessible from the autoroute the welcome was warm and the room was very good. The grounds are large and it was good to relax with a drink outside followed by a walk in the woods. Dinner, cooked by Benoit was excellent as was breakfast... More

This husband and wife team are amazing! Dominique is on Reception, showing guests to their room, serving drinks, answering the phone (she carries it with her!), seating you in the restaurant, taking orders, checking up that everyone is ok, around at breakfast to check everything is running smoothly, and taking payments. Benoit is the chef and serves some great meals,... More

We have stayed here several times en route through France. The rooms are all very good and have all been redecorated. The real star here is the restaurant and the fabulous food. Our meal last night was superb and I have to say one of the best in France. We hope to stay many more times in the future. Thank... More

Nice ambience, guests are treated by special personal attention from the owners, a friendly couple that started the hotel and restaurant – family operated - five years ago. The lady Dominique is in charge of the running, her husband Benoit in charge of the cuisine. Food preparation is excellent and innovative, which really is worth your visit. The breakfast buffet...

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 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.
