After reading about the traffic congestion in Sarlat (especially on market days), I purposely looked for a hotel that outside the old town center, would have on-site parking, and have easy access in and out of town. Hotel Bon Encontre seemed to fit the bill, as well as being described as clean, comfortable and accommodating. All is true! Yes, it... More

I stayed here in April and it was perfect for my visit to Sarlat. I needed a quiet place to rest and recharge my batteries. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful making my 3 night stay very pleasant. My room was very clean and well presented and the views were super. I was on my own on this... More

We stayed at this small, family run, hotel for a week and it was extremely relaxing to say the least. The room was a generous size as was the bed. It was very clean and comfortable and there was no unnecessary interference from staff or cleaners although they were always available if you needed them. The pool and the pool... More

This hotel is just outside the old town centre up a steep hill. But that suited us just fine. It is a 7 minute walk into town and a 15 minute walk back. We arrived mid afternoon on our motorbike and were greeted warmly by the reception staff. There is a large car park with a good tarmac surface which... More

The Bon Encontre was built in about 2004 but feels newer. Everything is crisp, clean and well kept. The hotel's construction uses the golden 'pierre blonde' Dordogne stone and reclaimed roof tiles to give a traditional appearance, but the mod cons include perfectly-working (and very nearly silent) air conditioning. (Other hotels should take note!) The swimming pool is well appointed,... More

Our second visit to Sarlat. This lovely welcoming hotel sits on a hill overlooking the beautiful town. The rooms were spotless and newly decorated, and the staff warm and friendly. We spoke in French and the receptionist made a great effort to slow down her responses so we could practice! We arrived early afternoon after a long drive and headed... More

Bon Encontre is situated in the hills above Sarlat and a car is necessary to access it. We were most impressed with the professionalism of the male receptionist who multi-tasked in the breakfast room in the mornings! He was a most charming young man, who helped lug our large suitcases up to our twin room, and gave us information about... More

A good situation high above the town, giving good views across the countryside. Very comfortable room. Although the hotel was quite busy, we did not find it at all noisy. Good parking. Very courteous and friendly young man, speaking good English, on reception, and a most charming lady greeted us for breakfast, which was quite comprehensive. We enjoyed our stay... More

We stayed one night here whilst touring the area. The hotel was quite hard to find at the top of the hills on the edge of Sarlat, but the views are great. We walked down to the old city to eat and found the walk back good for the digestion! The rooms are clean and comfortable, the reception welcoming and... More

Although we paid less here than at any other Hotel or B&B in France, we felt this was equal to hotels that cost twice as much. All the rooms are modern and new, the building itself is beautiful, nestled in the hill above Sarlat, with a nice front porch overlooking the city; the pool area is wonderful, and the breakfasts...
