“Excellent Short Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Cote Rivage for 3 nights during late August 2012, the hotel was spotlessly clean, the food excellent and the hosts were charming and helpful. Phillipe, an excellent chef, spoke little English so it was good to practice our little French with him, Nadine's English is very good (a bonus for us) so non-French speakers need not worry.
We would highly recommend the hotel to people wanting a reasonably priced, clean and comfortable place to stay that serves well presented, tasty food.

We stayed at this gem of a hotel in June 2012 for three nights. what a wonderful experience.Phillipe and Nadine, the owners were fabulous hosts and couldn't do more to make our visit special. The welcome we received on arrival was great as was the excellent cuisine.Phillipe is a fantastic chef. Badenfols is not a swinging hot spot! Thank goodness. Having spent the day climbing up to castles one just needs to rest in this haven of tranquillity!

We spent three nights at this lovely little hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is (almost) on the banks of the Dordogne - separated by a small, little used road - with wonderful views. Our room was small but thoughtfully appointed - plenty of space for clothes and that rare convenience in hotels, lots of shelves and places to hang things in the bathroom. If you want to come back after a day's sightseeing to somewhere you can relax on the terrace or in the comfortable lounge with a drink and then have a superb meal without going out again, this is the place. The food is first class - interesting, varied and delicious. It was taken over in December 2011 by the young couple who run it now and are doing an excellent job. The four blobs rather than five for service is based on two small incidents that may reflect their newness to the hotel business - our host, also the excellent chef, made a long phone call while watching us (rather ancient pensioners) struggle to get our suitcases upstairs; and our hostess made us laugh - but probably shouldn't make a habit of it - by breezing into our room without waiting after I'd called "just a minute" and greeted my half naked appearance with the words, "Don't worry, I was a nurse!" But these small incidents were offset by genuine warmth and helpfulness. It's a charming, comfortable place.

We only had one night in this hotel but were very impressed with the location, the sincere hospitality of the hostess and the general ambience of the building inside and out. There was a lovely patio and garden area at the front, a small, but pretty, view of the river from our room and the decor in our room was tasteful and most comfortable. Our room was not large but very clean and provided all the necessities for a very pleasant stay. The food was great and the hosts were particularly charming and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our night here. The price of the accommodation was excellent value.

What a wonderful hotel, and to be treated like family by Madam et Monsieur was a lovely touch. The vin peche is the secret, together with great food, lovely views of the river, and convenient access to Sarlat, Marqueyressac and the other bastide towns. Glorious and I'd go back tomorrow!

Stayed only one night as passing through but certainly wished to stay longer, and will go back. As others report, it is in a pleasant village, overlooking the river and very well laid out. The decor is refined and very well maintained. The hosts are charming and helpful, and the food....is not only excellent, but good value.
Overall, this hotel sets a standard many promise but fall short of.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while visiting the Dordogne and Vezere valleys. The hotel is small, in a small village, but right by the banks of the Dordogne. It is spotlessly clean, quiet, with good food at a reasonable price, and the very best hospitality provided by the owners personally. For example, we had to leave early before breakfast but Patric insisted on providing us - at no charge - with "a little coffee" as he called it and a couple of croissants before leaving. It is ideal for a one or two night stay while travelling through or around the area. The village of Badefols however, where it is situated, is not very interesting in itself.
