Sauveterre is tucked away about 15Km off the N88 Rodez-Toulouse road. It is a pefectly preserved 13thC arcaded village and well worth the detour. The Senechal hotel is a smart, newish hotel, just outside the ancient centre. It has been designed for effect and lacks warmth, though the lady who acts as receptionist and waitress is friendly enough. Our suite was large and had nothing actually wrong with it (except an absence of hooks in the bathroom) but was neither practical nor attractive. The restaurant is cold, each table decorated by a smart crystal vase containing a single goldfish and surrounded by exquisitely uncomfortable chairs. Dinner was pretentious but not particularly good. Breakfast was fine. There is a fine covered swimming pool.
Despite my negative view of each aspect of this hotel, it is a perfectly satisfactory overnight stay and it's well worth it to walk round the wonderful village.
