We spent 7 nights at this lovely hotel, which is located about 2 Km from Sarlat.
The land lady is very nice and helpful.
The room was comfortable, and breakfast was good.
I recommend this hotel as a base for star traveling in the Dordogne area
If you come during summer there is a swimming pool.
Free parking and free Wi-Fi is awailable.

There are many good things about this hotel. It is situated in a pleasant rural setting just outside Sarlat. It was converted from an old farmhouse and still retains many of the original and distinctive features. The surrounding gardens are attractive, and the hotel has a well appointed swimming pool, which is welcome in the hot weather. The breakfasts are plentiful and varied. Most importantly, the couple who run the hotel are very friendly and welcoming, and go out of their way to be helpful.

The only drawback s that the bedroom, though clean, was too small, and sparsely decorated. There was too little storage space, and only one plug for charging cameras, etc. if these points were to be put right, the hotel would be almost perfect.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the garden may be bigger and better equipped than our room, which faced the car par...

Stayed four nights - very happy. Pay the extra 10 euros for a room opening onto the garden and pool if available.
Pluses:
* Quiet rural location and comfortable beds make for a good night's sleep
* Plenty of parking in the forecourt
* High speed, log on and forget wifi for multiple devices throughout the premises
* Stylish modern decor and comfortable public areas
* Pool just about long enough to knock off a few laps if you are feeling energetic
* Charming multi-lingual (including English) host
* Breakfasts quite acceptable
* Good value at 70 or 80 euros / night (depending on room)
Minuses:
* Hard to find (but worth it)

If you speak only english, this is a great place to land on your trip through the Dordogne by car. Three kilometers south of Sarlat, the accommodations are fabulous. The rooms are well designed and lovely. The pool is great, and the grounds are beautiful. Sarlat is a great place to visit and spend two to three days exploring the valley. The Saturday market in Sarlat is particularly good, as it takes over the old town. If you bring a bottle of wine back to Le Mas De Castel, don't be afraid to ask for wine glasses; your hosts will be happy to accommodate, and you can enjoy your time on the terrace.

This delightful hotel is about 4 miles from Sarlat, luckily the satnav works well, otherwise you wonder where on earth you are going! A spacious welcoming delightful hotel. Super pool with lots of space to relax. Excellent buffet breakfast and large well appointed rooms. After the bustle of the amazing towns around there, this is the perfect end to the day

Room Tip: We chose the larger room. Not sure what the others were like

Even using our GPS, this hotel was a little tricky to find, so make sure you arive in daylight. On arrival we were greeted by a multi-lingual woman who, I suspect, was our hostess. She was very helpful and made us feel welcome. Our room was spacious - unlike so many others in France - though with no fridge nor tea/coffee facilties; again, this is typical of French hotels. The grounds were attractive and the swimming pool was clean (and cold!) Being semi-rural, it was also very quiet which allowed the windows to be open slightly; this was handy as it had been a hot day and despite looking, we couldn't find any air-conditioning in our room!
WiFi was free, though not available in rooms - you had to be in a public area. Parking was also free and a buffet breakfast was available at 8.5 Euros as an optional extra. Bar prices (at least for a glass of beer and white wine) were reasonable. However, despite the foregoing, and after booking via the internet, we felt that the rate we paid for our room (78 Euros inc. taxes) may have been a bit high, given that it was October and past the peak season.

Room Tip: Arrive in daylight!

The hotel is situated 10min drive from the centre of Sarlat. While this might put off some, others will love the rural setting and very quiet evenings here.

The place is lovely, with a nice garden in which to enjoy a bottle of the local produce, while watching the sunset.

The host is welcomming and very service minded, ensuring that the stay will be as pleasant as possible.

A definite place which we will return to.
