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.

I stayed at the chateau for two nights for a wedding in August. It was amazing in every way. Exceptional food, dedicated service, stunning location. The pool is a real find and separate from the chateau so kids can make some noise without disturbing others. We danced under the stars until 4am and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The breakfast, set in the dining room overlooking the valley, was delicious. They booked cabs and restaurants for us in Cahors which was very helpful. The only thing I would have liked is an electric car charging point. Maybe something for the future.

Beautiful castle hotel with stunning view! Really we had an amazing stay in this property, we had a beautiful room with a nice view and our room preferences were accommodated. Thanks to Melanie from front office, Romie and the gentleman who served us wine during dinner were nice and friendly. (I’m not sure if I spelled their name correctly) Highly recommended hotel for my friends in Dubai. Mercieeee😊

Chateau Mercues near Cahors was a 2 night stay for Gloucester Bentley Drivers heading to the Pyrenees with 8 pre war Bentleys. Accommodation was of a high order, as was breakfast selection taken in the beautiful courtyard, but most spectacular was a dinner of exceptional quality also taken in the courtyard on a long table prepared for us. Very friendly and helpful staff and as the chateau is also a major wine producer, we were given a free tour of their wine producing facilities and their extensive cellars. Thankyou.

I can't speak too highly about the hotel and its staff. The building is amazing as is its location perched high overlooking the river below. Our room was excellent and from our window we could watch the birds of prey hunting over the fields below. The staff were so helpful, efficient and friendly. But .. we were disappointed by the restaurant food. I am not suggesting that there was anything to complain about with the food, it just didn't live up to our expectations for a Michelin rated establishment. No single dish made us go 'wow' nor did the whole meal seem special. We were unimpressed.

Fantastic food, room, and service! A real treat. Lovely pool and dramatic cliff top setting with views from everywhere, even the bath! Staff are very welcoming and available. Great value for money. Only small quibble pool could have had some leaves cleaned, but that was minor. Restaurant is fantastic! Highly recommended!

In a convenient and stunning location. Simply a beautiful place to look at. Our room had stunning views and was serene. Simply walk out the front gates and walk into the hills. We enjoyed wonderful food at breakfast, snacks and drinks with an excellent selection of drinks. It was a very quiet time there, evidently due to covid. The staff were enthusiastic and welcoming, maybe just a tad rusty as a consequence of covid reducing demand, but I have no complaints. The pool area was very pleasant, made more so by the proximity of nature. One of our top Relais & Chateau visits ever. Recommended.

We stayed here for one night, to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday, and had a fab time. The castle is old, but nicely decorated to fit with the style. It's like stepping back in time, where the hotel has done a great job of keeping the history, whilst combining it with all the modern amenities you would expect. Our room was spacious and clean with a great view over the valley. We enjoyed the outdoor pool and a private tour of the wine cellars including a tasting of 4 different wines. In the evening, we started with an aperitif in the courtyard and continued with the 7 course tasting menu in the Michelin restaurant with really lovely and creative food. As an added bonus, the chef organised a small birthday cake at the end of the dinner as a surprise! Throughout our stay, staff was very helpful and attentive. Can really recommend this place for a different and luxurious stay!

Certainly any Relais & Chateaux property comes with some high expectations, and Chateau de Mercues does not disappoint. Perched high above the Lot River, the views are breath taking, and as the sun sets and fades into night, the property takes on an even more magical quality. Service was gracious, attentive, and welcoming, and sets a very high standard you'd be hard pressed to match, Our elegant room directly overlooked the courtside dining, with views that extended down to the river, but also beyond the looming turret and into the stunning valley below. A morning walk can take you approx 1/4 mile along the valley to watch the sunrise over Cahors. A two night stay that will remain with us forever.

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.
