Dear sir, Your comment is on the WRONG page. You were trying to reach the "GROTTE DE PECH MERLE" wich is a prehistoric cave to visit. Here you are on "HOTEL DES GROTTES" wich is a hotel restaurant near the cave. Your note 1/5 is really hard to accept. We kindly ask you to delete it. Cher Monsieur, Votre commentaire est sur la mauvaise page. Vous avez essayer de noter la "GROTTE DE PECH MERLE" qui est une grotte prehistorique a visiter. Ici vous etes sur la page de "L 'HOTEL DES GROTTES" qui est un hotel restaurant pres de la grotte. Votre note de 1/5 est difficile a accepter. Nous vous demandons de retirer ce commentaire.

I can't really explain how good my pork was! Harry, 7. My steak was really juicy and the chips were awesome. Freddie, 10. Beautiful riverside setting and after a day's canoeing we were ready for some serious eating. Been in France for 7 days now and best meal by far. Great food,

We stayed one night while hiking in the area. First of all the Grotto visit nearby is more than stunning and unexpected to see something which will not happen much into the future. These rare caves will be closed to the public soon. Back to the hotel: on a rainy and cold day

Dear "Spiral", we are sorry to read about your experience. Please note that you booked an "economy" room which is the cheapest category of rooms in our hotel and which has not been renovated yet, whereas comfort & superior rooms with river view has. We run this family business since 5 years and we are doing renovation works every years. This is a long way to achieve it but we keep on moving. We regret a lot your bad comments concerning your meal at the restaurant, people are really happy about the local and simple food we propose. We kindly ask you to explain us in MP what did you have for your dinner, we would try to improve. Regarding the breakfast and the staff, we sincerely thanks you for your encouragement.

"We had a river view room."
"River view is best. Village view nice but you hear early morning traffic (but there's not much of it!)."
"Our room was fine, but it would have been great to have a view of the river."
"Those at the back are quieter and overlook the river."
"The place is so quiet and relaxing in May any room will do."
$67 - $118 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
