This hotel, full of character, personality, and a solid touch of elegance, is a tranquil place to linger for a few days and enjoy the beauty of the Dordogne Valley. The dining room is just another good reason to stay here. I think either all or most of the rooms front on the river and have a nice view. Our... More

Superb meal start to finish. Warm and cold foie gras fabulous, warm better. Noix starter was out special. Pullet with morels was moist and exceptional. Sole was very good as were the lamb chops. To top it off, profiteroles, rum cake, chocolate roll fabulous. Service was very good, wish it were warm enough to have sat on the deck and... More

We first stayed at the Belle Etoile on our honeymoon 25 years ago - a happy accident as we weren't planning to but the car broke down. It is still in the same family and has only got better and better. The location is unbeatable and the hotel manages to combine a wonderfully intimate and rustic feel with all of... More

At the suggestion of Rick Steves' book on France, we booked 3 nights in this lively place. Great restaurant. Lovely people here. Very affordable. Excellent view of the river. Cannot recommend it enough.

We visited in September, when La Roque was less touristed. It's a beautiful time to be on the Dordogne, and La Belle Etoile is a lovely place to enjoy it. The staff is very helpful. The room is classically simple- comfortable and with a great view of the river. The food was the best that we had in our 3... More

This property is located along the Dordogne River and on the principal street in the tiny town of La Roque Gageac. Rooms will have a beautiful, unobstructed view of the river. The restaurant and service at the hotel are both outstanding. The rooms are small and simply furnished. Our bathroom was small, but obviously had recently been redone. Not all... More

I visited this hotel when touring the Dordogne area. The village itself is very pretty but busy due to this during the day . We were welcomed by friendly reception staff and shown to our room. The room was well appointed and comfortable. All furnishings and decor is authentically Old worlde French which is very much in keeping with the... More

La Roque- Gargeac is such a pretty place to visit and the hotel sits right on the river. Our room was spacious and very clean with a good sized bathroom. We were on a cycle tour so food is very important. Our package included a wonderful dinner in the restaurant and a very extensive breakfast. It was so nice to... More

A short break in a beautiful region of France. The room was simple and comfortable with an amazing view onto the Dordogne. The second night we managed to obtain a table at the restaurant (reserve beforehand!!) and the meal was exquisite. DEFINITELY worth the detour and a chance to savour some excellent French cuisine. Staff friendly, welcoming and helpful. A... More
