Travelers' Choice
Beautiful like the painting of a great master, Chateau de Mercues bears witness to eight centuries of history and culture in perfect harmony. Both a wine estate and a Relais & Chateaux hotel with a nice fine dining restaurant. Chateau de Mercues is a haven of peace in the heart of the Lot region.

Our visit was intended as an escape from our daily regime on the coast and we loved every minute. On arrival, we were greeted in the parking lot, checked in and had our bags delivered. Our room was both charming and cozy, but with remarkable view over the river, cataracts and the landscape. My husband is a painter and immediately sat down to do a watercolor. The room was so comfortable that we took our dinner the first night there (the bistrot was not open), and it could not have been better. We shared stuffed cabbage with duck, mashed potatoes with truffles, a salad, a plate of local cheeses, and a dessert of passionfruit and sorbet. The next night, we enjoyed the fine restaurant and had a perfect meal. Breakfasts were great, with an enormous buffet and careful service, and one night we enjoyed cocktails in the bar before dinner. The delightful staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We lacked for nothing.

We were greeted by staff in the parking upon arrival. A quick tour and check in set a pleasant mood. Supper that evening in the fabulous restaurant was something special. However, the charm started to grown thin the next morning when the 33 euro per person breakfast was really nothing good. Then we realized that a seven course meal each night for four nights would really not be nice as we just couldn't enjoy that much of a good thing. As there was no other option we had to eat out the rest of our stay. Unfortunately, the hotel is isolated and we found Cahors rather uninteresting and really dead on Sunday and Monday. Rain settled in and hotel has no cozy place to read, have a drink,etc. On top of it all they left doors to the outside stand open all the time. A beautiful old castle quickly became an old drafty place. Worth a meal, once. We will never return. Poor value for money in the end.

This beautiful old château is perched high on the hill overlooking the Lot. Our room had wonderful views. The furnishings in the room are typical of an old French château. The bathroom, although spacious, had a shower over the bath and because of the way it was placed was difficult to get into and out of safely. The restaurant was good. Although we had reserved for the night of our arrival we were surprised to be told there was no other availability during our stay as in our experience hotels usually keep some tables back for guests of the hotel. Later in our stay a table was found for us. The service in the restaurant wasn’t as good as it could have been. And, we accept that this may be due to the current pandemic and also the fashion, but we prefer a menu where there is a choice of what to eat rather than the ubiquitous ‘tasting menu’. Despite advertising the opening hours, we were disappointed to arrive at the cave for a tasting and to buy some wine only to be told it was closed due to an interview taking place. Generally our stay was ‘okay’, expensive and we wouldn’t return.

Staff on arrival were excllent and remained pleasant throughout. The pool was enjoyable in the summer heat, however for an expensive hotel, overall this was a disappointing experience. Difficult to belive that a hotel of this nature doesnt have air conditioning in the room. This meant we got little sleep as the room got so hot in the summer temperatures. The restarant was also below expectations. Whilst the food was of a good standard (although the steak was overdone), the service was slow and not in line the Michelin experience that it should have been.

On our way to Spain we decided to stay over in France... upon arrival in this hotel we had to drag our bags through dirty dolomite stones to the reception, nobody offered assistance... on our way to the roomd again a lot of stairs without assistance... we booked two rooms and one had NO airco! Asking 300 euro for a sleezy room without airco is criminal. Pool and poolhouse are dirty... lack of maintenance... food portions are for babies at crazy prices. Overal it’s a huge tourist trap! Typical French style
