Beautiful hotel in an old renovated house near Lascaux. You just feel like a french king in the 17th century. The staff is very polite. It’s difficult to find the right words. If you love old castles, beautiful renovated rooms, you want to visit Lascaux … it’s the right address for you. And don’t underestimate the restaurant of the hotel. Worth more than one visit
Fabulous building with super public rooms with antiques and decor. Attentive staff. Our suite 'Fil de L'eau' was somewhat underwhelming. The bedroom was not particularly large even though the bathroom was. The washbasin taps were overstyled modern fittings that had already worked loose. Traditional old fashioned taps would have looked nicer and worked better for years to come. The main selling point of this room is the large private terrace., however although it faces the river, the view is obstructed by buildings and trees. It is also immediately above a busy road, so if you want a quiet drink or breakfast on the terrace, forget it. Also whilst we were there next door was a building site being worked on. Breakfast was fine but overpriced. Cannot comment on diner as Restaurant closed both nights we were there.…
After 6 hours of driving, we were thrilled to see our beautiful hotel where we had booked the 'Chambre de Maitre', on the first floor. Huge windows, a lovely terrace on the river and one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in, plus a antique desk with hidden treasures and an immense armoire. The bathroom was enormous, filled with every amenity, and great views also from its windows. The charming public rooms on the ground floor offered an inviting fireplace, a grand piano and comfortable chairs and tables for an aperitif or game of cards. Because of Covid 19, the splendid dining room on the 1st floor was closed, but we enjoyed our copious breakfasts and one exceptional dinner in the cozier dining space on the ground floor. Staff was very welcoming, but every precaution was taken against spreading germs, and as we were almost alone (there was one other couple one night), there was little danger.…
The exterior is wonderful but the interior leaves to be desired. Our mirrors had large cracks in it, the door wobbled in the frame. The staff was a bit unhelpful although other guests were very helpful.
A wonderfully restored old town palace with individual and charming rooms, great cuisine and very friendly service. We had a big room with a wonderful bathroom that provided two rain showers in a row so one could share the shower. A small adjunct room provided lots of space for clothes and luggage and the view towards the Vezère river and Lascaux was very nice. We enjoyed two excellent dinners that really were gourmet and the lovely breakfast with fresh frommage blanc, fruits and juices was just excellent.
We stayed here 2 nights in late September as a home base for cave art viewing. The property is beautiful and location is good, but the room was lacking a bit in crucial ways. We had a double and strangely it had NO seating other than the bed. It did have 2 small wicker table type things but we didn’t dare sit on them. The lamp and headboard were also wicker, as if the owner was trying to make it tropical which simply did not work in this building. Also the bathroom was strange, the vanity far too large for the very small room to the point that it was hard to move around. The restaurant dinner was delish. All in all good, but the room decor and logistics still need improvement.
We enjoyed our meal. The place has a restrained elegance and the food was good, especially the puddings. Theres parking in front of the hotel which makes life a little easier because it’s central Montignac.
We had an delicious dinner last week at the Hotel de Bouilhac. The mansion was well restored and tastefully decorated. Our host and chef came to greet every table. Another charming place in this truly beautiful region.
I have a house not far from Montignac and I saw the painstaking restoration of a fine historic house in the centre of town that is now Hotel de Bouilhac. The sharing of a birthday with my partner this year was the impetus for booking an overnight stay with half board this year. We went all out and chose the delux suite for our stay. It was everything we'd hoped for, with a huge comfortable bed, antique furniture, a lovely modern bathroom and a massive private terrace overlooking the beautiful central courtyard and out over the the rooftops of Montignac Lascaux. The armoire in the magnificantly spacious room was twice my height, well over three metres tall. We ate in the beautifully lit courtyard at dinner and breakfasted in a wonderfully furnished first floor dining room. The food was just divine at dinner and the breakfast was copious and varied. Service at the Bouilhac , whether having dinner, dropping in for a lunchtime drink or staying in the hotel is friendly and professional in our experience. The building is beautifully restored, has very few bedrooms and offers a very unique hotel experience. It is a real asset to have such a wonderful new hotel restaurant in Montignac and we shall certainly be visiting again.…
The service at this hotel has improved dramatically since I wrote the last review in 2017. The restaurant staff are professional, polite, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. On this occasion we were there to celebrate a friends birthday. A very comfortable seating area and bar is provided on one side of the spacious terrace. The dining tables are well spaced and offer a good degree of privacy. The set dinner menu costs €39 per head and the wine list is extensive. Each dish was beautifully presented and served with a smile. We are luck to live close by and will be visiting again soon. Thank you to Christophe and his team for an excellent evening under the stars in beautiful surroundings.
