“Super clean, very friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

A fantastic little hotel for a few nights stay.
Very, very clean inside and out. Felt like it was brand new.
We found all the staff very helpful and friendly.
A great pool to chill out by after a hot day out sightseeing.
Very nice for a three star.
In a great position for walking down into Sarlat the hill back up does help to burn of the 'canard'
A great location for visiting the many attractions in the region.
Do try to get to Marqueyssac the gardens and the view are amazing

Sparkling clean, nice swimming pool and friendly/helpful staff. The hotel is 10 min walk from the city center on the way down (!!!), a good 15-20 on the way back (up hill).
Private parking. Good beds.
Now the choice of the ceramic floor across the entire hotel helps to keep it clean but is a serious problem re sound isolation. So everybody is up at the breakfast time ;-)

Staying at this hotel in the historical town of Sarlat was an absolute delight. The grounds and swimming pool are the first glimpse one gets as they enter reception. Sarah, the receptionist speaks excellent English and showed us to our room (10) on the first floor. A safe is provided at no extra cost. Some of our clothes needed to be stored in our suitcases owing to a lack of shelf and drawer space. Perhaps if we had not been staying for so long it would not have presented a problem.
Cleanliness was second to none. Tiled floors are always a problem regarding footsteps outside but this did not unduly bother us. Breakfast represented the best value we have ever experienced in France. Very friendly and hospitable. We would recommend this to anyone who places comfort and hygiene high on their list of priorities.

Superb location and views, luxury feel. Fine swimming pool with comfortable sun beds. Spotlessly clean, with attention to detail. Lovely informal atmosphere, but stylish at the same time. Breakfast adequate enough for the price.

Breakfast was let down by the coffee being served in flasks. The taste varied from day to day. Filter coffee served from a 'help yourself' jug on a hot plate would have improved the taste and overall breakfast experience at a place of this calibre. Tea and coffee in the room would have been the icing on the cake.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the pool which was pleasant.

Charming little hotel above the village. Good breakfast ( they even offer omelettes and eggs a but there is no way of knowing it ) nice comfortable bed and very clean and modern with colonial charms. €95 euro's is a good deal

I'm so pleased that Trip Advisor's reviews led me to book this hotel. It was perfect for our requirements. It was in a quiet residential road on the edge of town, and had its own parking area. Quiet and parking space are rare commodities in Sarlat! The hotel was immaculately maintained, and everyone of the staff was charming, welcoming and helpful. We had a spacious superior room with a modern 4-poster bed, ample hanging/shelf space, and a large bathroom. The breakfast buffet was generous and varied. There was plenty of outdoor seating, on the terraces or around the pool, with a choice of east, south and west facing prospects - always some sun or shade, depending on your preference. We really enjoyed the walk to the town centre (10 minutes down, 15 minutes up, as the reception staff rightly described it). Just right for some post-prandial exercise. But if you're not able to cope with that, you'll need to take your car. There are many parking spaces - it's just a matter of finding one free!

Lovely place, very clean, tidy, really helpful staff, super pool. Less than a kilometre walk to Sarlat, it's a bit of a climb but nothing for anyone who's reasonably mobile. Really pleased and would certainly return.
