“Very cheap and friendly accomodation”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

€100 a night for a 4 person room (1 queen and 1 king size bed). Though a bit spartan and outworn, it was clean, and at the price a decent room. No A/C, thus it can be some tough nights during the sommer.

The WiFi was very slow and not available at all places, but for free and easy to use (no setup etc.).

The pool area was clean and quiet, but did not appear to be intended for longer use, as there were no tables or chairs, and only very few parasols.

It was 4-5 minutes drive from center of Sarlat - and as there are no minibar in the rooms, and as the hotel "bar" closed around 20:00 (maybe 21:00), there are no way to get hold of water or anything else until the day after.

The breakfast was fine - while not impressing.

The employees was very kind and service minded.

A country hotel a few minutes drive out of Sarlat. Its a slight nuisance to have to drive into town and find parking/ negotiate the one way system, but the owner is good at recommending restaurants. It would be good if there was somewhere within walking distance.

The rooms are simply furnished (no English tv channels!), and whilst the garden rooms are nice, you are very much on view to other guests. The pool is unheated but a good size - just a shame the weather wasn't good enough to make the most of the pool and garden.

Whilst there were some families staying on one night we were there, I don't think its the best location for a family, the guests are mostly older couples or singles enjoying the quiet countryside location.

As everyone says, the owner is a fantastic host, on hand at breakfast to chat and gets to know all her guests.

Room Tip: As others have said its worth paying for a larger garden room, IF the weather is good.

the hotel is like a jewel. every corner has the touch of the owner lady. she was very nice and helpfull. situated a little bit out of Sarlat, but as we had a car, it did not bother us. the parking lot was free and at the hotel's entrance. we got a room facing the beautiful large garden. the room was very-very small, but I think that this was the worst room as we came in late at night and all rooms were already full. breakfast was served in an elegant small dinning room. it was rainy and cold so we could not enjoy breakfast in the garden. in spite of the petit room I recomand the hotel.

Le Mas De Castel is a lovely hotel just outside Sarlat. The lady of the house, Sandrine, is a very charming lady who greets everyone with a lovely smile. We booked a room that opened out onto the gardens with a little patio where we could have a picnic in the evening with a glass of wine (or two). The gardens are very pretty and there is a good swimming pool which unfortunately we could not use because of the weather. Breakfasts were very good with lots of choices of bread, croissants, ham, cheeses and eggs plus a lovely cup of French coffee. We did a some trouble at first trying to find the Hotel because it is in a very rural part of Sarlat but once there it is easy to find again. There are some lovely restaurants in Sarlat well worth a visit, also a visit to Beynac and La Roche Gageac is a must.

We will most certainly return next year and just hope that the weather is better.

Room Tip: Book a superior room opening onto the garden with your own little patio.

The owner was more than happy to answer all our questions with kindness. The hotel is located just 5 minutes out of Sarlat. We took a room facing the hotel parking area which was still quite, functional but comfortable. The breakfast was generous and tasty as you would expect from fresh local bread and croissant. The owner takes care of the breakfast herself and always has the time to provide tips for the next wonderful day. I highly recommend this place for those who are looking for a quite, out of the city and warm place to rest you head after touring the wonderful area.

Room Tip: rooms with the garden view are probably worth the price difference.

Loved this place, really friendly welcome. Room was very modern but I loved it, very clean and excellently furnished. Free wifi brilliant. Plenty of advice about Sarlat and where to eat. How I wish the weather had been better so that I could use the pool. Shame there is not a restaurant on site but there are plenty a short distance away

Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice, fresh and appetising.

This is an excellent location and it's proximity to Sarlat is a bonus, but the best thing about the place is the undoubted charm of its owners.

We stayed as a family of 4 for a week making this hotel a base for exploring the Dordogne. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, an example being arranging a days bike hire for us. The hotel is quiet and set in lovely grounds. It has anice sized pool with plenty of sun loungers. Breakfasts were relaxed woth a good choice. We really enjoyed pur stay and strongly recommend this hotel.
