“Walk around the back”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

One of the things you must do at this Hotel is walk around the back. A plaque on the cliff behind (and slightly towards the rail station) marks the location of the excavation where Cromagnon man was first found. This is the modern human group who made all the rock art in the Dordogne, and this is where excavations in the 1860s discovered them. If you are interested in history its a place to visit. Not much to see but a place to have been to.

Stayed July 2011, traveled with friends

We stayed in the hotel and ate at the restaurant as part of a self-guided cycling tour we had organised so I can't comment specifically on the "value" however was really pleased with this hotel.

If you have a room on the first floor, make sure you head up to the second floor and check out the walls of the foyer as they have been carved out of the rocks.

We do not speak french and we found all of the staff helpful in assisting us. Food and service was good in the restaurant. The town of Les Eyzies was really pleasant and a recommended stop on your tour around the aquitane.

Charming hotel. Pleasant and helpful owner/staff. Room was large, clean and comfortable. Ample parking. Easy walk into Les Eyzies and very convenient to all the attractions in the Dordogne. Good restaurant.

Just a note to say how delighted we were with the service provided by Gabriela Ramirez.. Ms. Ramirez was extremely polite and very friendly. We were in town so my husband could undergo surgery. Ms. Ramirez helped with directions and made our stay so comfortable. We will certainly be back! Thank you.

We started and finished a 6 day bike trip from this hotel. It's very comfortable and you are made to feel welcomed. The food was great.

Valerie couldn't have been a more helpful hostess for our stay in Les Eyzies. Very nice rooms and a great patio/restaurant where we ate every night as the food was excellent. Sure, the hotel is on the main drag through town, but it quiets down in the evening (and the windows close!)

Situated on a junction of the noisy main road and a side road and also right by the train line level crossing. There appeared to only be rooms to the front of the hotel as it was built into the cliff.
Room had broken safe sitting loose in wardrobe, tv was fitted to wall off level and with a note saying not to try and straighten it. Bathroom had no proper shower just a bath shower handle. Both light over bathroom mirror and extractor fan didn’t work. Mixture of different coloured towels. Funny musky smell in room perhaps from furniture. Despite a la carte menu and fixed price menus, half board gave no choice of food with dishes being selected by owner. Given that half board was expensive, food was poor.
Hotel generally faded and tired. Photos not representative. Depressing and dispiriting atmosphere.
Breakfast was basic. No staff present.
