Have passed through this area countless times in 25 years and had almost given up finding a reasonably priced hotels with comfortable beds, spacey rooms and a good restaurant. We will be back.

We have stayed before and will definitely return. Ideally placed for a stopover and a lovely welcome awaits. We were significantly delayed on the tunnel, but phoned ahead and Dominique was very helpful, making a later reservation for our dinner. We had the same room as previously, spotlessly clean and so comfortable - the bathroom had been refurbished since our... More

Travelling south this was a one night stopover that we would be happy to repeat. Easily accessible from the autoroute the welcome was warm and the room was very good. The grounds are large and it was good to relax with a drink outside followed by a walk in the woods. Dinner, cooked by Benoit was excellent as was breakfast... More

This husband and wife team are amazing! Dominique is on Reception, showing guests to their room, serving drinks, answering the phone (she carries it with her!), seating you in the restaurant, taking orders, checking up that everyone is ok, around at breakfast to check everything is running smoothly, and taking payments. Benoit is the chef and serves some great meals,... More

We have stayed here several times en route through France. The rooms are all very good and have all been redecorated. The real star here is the restaurant and the fabulous food.

Nice ambience, guests are treated by special personal attention from the owners, a friendly couple that started the hotel and restaurant – family operated - five years ago. The lady Dominique is in charge of the running, her husband Benoit in charge of the cuisine. Food preparation is excellent and innovative, which really is worth your visit. The breakfast buffet...

As others have said it's convenient for the motorway, about halfway down France, it has a secure car park and there's a Carrefour nearby selling fuel at a decent price.

We thought this was a perfect choice for a stopover on the way south to the Dordogne. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable accommodation in the annexe, and the restaurant food was very good. A very quiet and peaceful setting ensures a good night's relaxation to prepare for the next leg of your journey. We would definitely use La Sauldraie again.
