Very large room, comfortably furnished. We left important travel papers in the room when we checked out. Host remembered our next night's hotel from our conversation the night before. When we got to our next night's hotel, our papers were already there and we did not yet know they were missing.

We had a superior room on the first floor, the room was a real french gem, large, bright with a stunning bathroom, the large windows draped with beautiful curtains. Being a bit nosey I asked if I could look around the other vacant rooms, wow, all ooze charm with a french flavour, loved room 12 which is a stunning family room sleeping 5 that is just something right out of a fairy tale story. Thiviers comes alive on a Saturday morning with a bustling food street market, definitely worth a visit. The river Dordogne is just an hour away, a perfect day out kayaking and seeing the most beautiful chateaux's en-route, take a picnic and just pull up on one of the several small beaches along the river for lunch. You can also kayak closer to Thiviers but we thought the slightly longer journey was worth it. Lastly, you really must eat in the Restaurant. Sharon and Adrian found a real gem in Nicolas, the chef, his food is simply amazing.

We have stayed in this hotel several times before when Nicky, the previous owner had it. We were a bit concerned that the new owners, Sharon and Adrian might have updated it losing some of the French charm that we love. We need not have worried. They have made changes, but all of them good ones! They are absolutely excellent hosts and we enjoyed every moment of our stay. They could not have been more friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. Breakfasts were particularly good in the sunny breakfast room or on the terrace. An added bonus is having a 5* restaurant on the premises run by Nicholas and his team. Jusqu’a l’annee prochaine!

A most warm welcome awaited us from Sharon & Adrian introducing us to wonderful stay at Hotel de France et de Russie. Nothing was too much trouble for myself husband and teenage son, on our first trip to France Also to lovely Meili, for daily smiles, and a tidy bedroom. We were given lots of tips,before arriving and during,on what to do and see. Prior booking of some attractions is recommended in August,and I'm pleased I booked ahead, avoiding disappointment. We explored this beautiful area each day after a lovely relaxed ( plentiful) breakfast, and returned each evening to a warm greeting and a very comfortable bedroom. We also would recommend eating at least once in the Hotel restaurant just to experience the exquisite food and ambience of a summer evening on the terrace. Thank you Nicolas,and staff, it was a treat. There is much to see in this beautiful area, in a car, on foot, and a bike, which we hired from Dordogne cycle hire, whose delivery too and from hotel was much appreciated. To our hosts, Thank you for a great stay, and making us feel special, having now read reviews it's how you make all your guests feel,( and we thought it was just us!) which makes you two very special indeed! We hope to return soon, to discover more. We would highly recommend to all

This is the only hotel in Thiviers and what a gem it is. Run by an English couple who are charming and nothing is too much trouble. As the restaurant is closed on a Monday, we were given a map to show where the local supermarket is located and when we returned, we were given cutlery, plates and glasses and were able to eat in their lovely garden to eat our "picnic". The owners and staff were very friendly and made us feel very much at home. Would recommend.
