Review based on a three night stay. The rooms were comfortable and cleaned daily, however attention to detail was poor - a corridor light out and not repaired, there was mould in the shower grouting in both rooms I saw. The buildings were very interesting and the conversion from a farm sympathetically done, although outside there remains some work to be completed. The pool could have been really nice but the water was not clean, it was tinged green and poolside furniture was shabby. My biggest gripe was with the breakfast, the bread was never fresh, probably from having been cut too far in advance and there was never a member of staff in permanent attendance - so if anything ran out (and it did), it was necessary to wait or to go and find someone. The breakfast experience put us off trying the restaurant for an evening meal, so we went elsewhere.
Overall, it gave the appearance of poor, perhaps remote, management. The staff were pleasant but the housekeeping issues spoiled what could have been a really pleasant stay in lovely surroundings.

Just a good stop-over. Not - in our modest view - a place to stay very long. Setting is beautifull. Nice size pool, standard sized rooms and decent dinner but nothing special. But slow service at table. However, good value for money.
No elevator and quite some steps and stairs, so pay attention.

We stayed here for one night on our way to the Dordogne and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is very close to the A20, but you feel that you are in the middle of the countryside. We arrived too late to eat an evening meal but were served coffee in the lovely old courtyard, as we wanted to sit outside. Our room was beautiful and very good value for money. Breakfast was a very relaxed affair taken in the restaurant/breakfast room. The staff on duty were very courteous and helpful. We would definitely stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Room Tip: Make sure you have good directions to get to the hotel from the A20 (going south) as the road out of...

The hotel Domaine de Vareilles and the grounds are beautiful! Situated in countryside and close to the motorway A20. Lovely pool, clean comfy rooms and lovely decor.Big plus a large ancient court yard. Breakfast was excellent and when we were able to eat dinner at the hotel, it was fantastic! The staff were very helpful, english spoken.Loved it and highly recommend!

excellent stay on our way south. the kids had a good time exploring/running around in the garden. We probably will use it again in the future, the very quite location is excellent. It did help to look at a map on the internet: we arrived in the dark and I think we would have struggled. I read some of the negative comments but found the owners very approachable/friendly.
