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.

As fairly regular visitors to the chateau, we booked a St Valentine's stay at the Chateau. As usual, we enjoyed our stay enormously. The rooms are superb and the welcome 1st class. However, the experience was marred by a wailing child in the restaurant, and a lengthy delay between 2 courses. The main womplaint was the persistant crying and wailing of a small child in the restaurant, for almost an entire hour. In a restaurant where you are paying in excess of 500 € for your meal, (with drinks), I would expect that the staff would ensure that a certain ambiance is maintained, and if someone (in this case a baby), is making excessive noise, then they are asked to leave the restaurant so that the other diners may continue in the sort of environment that they had expected. The second point was the excessive delay between our Sea Bass course and the Pigeon - it was certainly over 45 minutes probably in excess of 50 minutes. I am guessing that the kitchen staff were allowing those diners who arrived at 21.00 to catch up with those who commenced at 19.30 (which included ourselves). Once again, when you are paying in excess of 500 € for your meal, I would expect that the service to be steady and not subject to such lengthy delays. What should have been a superb visit spoiled by these 2 points.

Beautiful room with stunning views. The extremely small room/closet which housed the toilet was interesting, one almost felt one had to reverse into it. The bathroom itself was small but nicely equipped, the walk in shower was great. We did not eat dinner at the chateau as we were put off by the price and other reviews. The breakfast was good apart from the coffee which was lukewarm both days. We would stay again as the building is beautiful, but hope that the restaurant considers more choices or a lower priced set menu.

The location is stunning and the front desk staff is adequate. The housekeeping staff is the best and deserves the biggest shout-out. The food is pricey even for France and none of it was so extraordinary that we took a cell phone picture. The restaurants in Cahors are a winding drive away.... The continental breakfast was disappointing every day. Not enough variety and most days the eggs were gone, or the croissants were gone, or there was no fruit yogurt. The absolutely worse thing about this property was the "invasion" of stink bugs. At least 8 were in our room every day. Yes, okay so they don't bite, but still who wants one on your pillow or flying around your room. Not us.

You could just stay at this hotel for several days and be happy, enjoying the views in the hospitality. But there are several places very close that are worth seeing as well. Room is very comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast served to the room is highly recommended!

We stayed at the Chateau Mercues for one night. The chateau is wonderful, beautifully restored with luxury rooms sited at the top of the hills surrounding Cahors. Ours overlooked the river Lot giving us panoramic views across the river to the hills and the city below. We also got a tour of the wonderful wine producing operation which is underneath the Chateau. The dining room, bar and lounge are all stylishly equipped and it was a shame that the weather didn't allow us to eat alfresco in the lovely courtyard or terrace, but the dining room was of a very high standard. BUT-the food was disappointing. There seemed to be no a la carte menu-if there was, we were never offered it, so we had a choice of the 150 eu 4 course meal, or the 200 eu 6 course meal. Now at that price, I would expect to be treated to a memorable meal, but unfortunately, none of the courses will linger in the memory. The vegetable terrine was nicely presented, but nothing special, while the monkfish was again unmemorable. I enjoyed the lamb in vervaine, but my companion said hers was a little tough. The poached pear dessert was beautifully presented , albeit with only a ring of pear on a chocolate base, probably not what we expected to see. Overall, the meal was slightly underwhelming. At the price, it struck me as being a meal for people who liked to be seen to be spending money, rather than a meal for people who enjoyed fine dining. It felt a bit like the 'emperor's clothes'-a meal that people could convince themselves was great rather than admit it was only slightly above average. Overall, I would stay at the Chateau again, as it is lovely but I would go into Cahors, to eat and get a better meal at a better price. 10/10-Hotel, 6-10 food

Book a room for your chance to stay in this genuine 13 century castle in the heart of dordogne region. Only 30 rooms so never felt crowded and we felt like special guests. Amazing 25 meter pool which was a blessing during the summer heat wave. Rooms were comfortable and breakfast was perfect.

Good hotel in a well restored castle. Comfortable room. A fine restaurant worthy of a Michelin star - this is not our first star restaurant. This one is really good. Very professional wine selection. We were very pleased with the tour and wine tasting, which is produced here. Good professional staff. Very beautiful view from the window and the park around the castle.

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.
