“The best place to stay in Sarlat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

My husband and I recently stayed here for 6 days. The experience was great. Probably the best location in Sarlat with the hotel being right at the edge of the old town. The old town is pedestrian only so you can not park there. They provide a private parking lot around the corner which we used since I had heard that parking was difficult in the area.

The hotel is modern, nicely styled, and the rooms are clean, up-to-date, very comfortable. We stayed in the basic room and it was spacious by european standards. Probably average by american standards.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Most speak fluent english.

The pool is lovely. It feels very private and is well taken care of. The lounge area is very nice - we spent alot of time there reading and relaxing in afternoons.The spa is also very nice.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area!

One thing to consider - if you are traveling to Sarlat on a saturday, you should call ahead and see where you can park and unload. The whole street closes down for the market. We ended up leaving on a saturday and had no issues coming from their private lot.

We spent two nights here and were very happy with the location, facilities and value for money. The room was a tad small but perfectly adequate. Free wifi and small pool were a plus. The hotel is within walking distance of all shops, restaurants and attractions in this lovely town. The market each Saturday takes place right outside the hotel and all along the main streets, it is one of the best markets we have been to - a mixture of food, clothes, jewellery and gifts and all of good quality. We were not told on booking that it is necessary to book car parking, so on arrival the hotel parking was full. However, we parked a five minute walk away in a large, free car park which was perfectly acceptable and saved us €30!

Fantastic Hotel, which lives up to it's claim of being a luxury hotel. We stayed in a Prestige Room which was just pure luxury. We could not fault our view of the room and hotel ammenities. The pool and hot tub were fantastic and had we wished the steam room and sauna, but we chose not to use it, mainly because the lovely August weather kept us poolside. We have seen other reviews about the hotel and it's claim of being a spa hotel and I would agree that we were also under the impression from their website that they would have an indoor pool and full spa facilities which would normally include massage and perhaps other spa treatments.

Breakfast was very disorganised because food was laid out in different areas and some of the staff could do with a lesson in smiling !! But the quality of the food and choice was essentially very good.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Prestige Room which carried a higher tarrif especially during high season, but it tic...

The whole Hotel is very modern which may not appeal everybody but we liked it. The AC was wonderful and managed to keep the room cool throughout the four nights we stayed there with outside temperature well above 30 C. Wifi is free, two logins per room. Breakfast was very nice with a choice to sit outside and watch the city come to life in the morning. One of the waitresses was a bit surly...

Parking, which you can book in advance, is 10€ and a couple of blocks from the hotel but very secure and under roof. Expect lots of tourists in august with traffic jams on most main roads leading to and from Sarlat and major sights in the area.

Only stayed for one night but wish it had been two. Very well positioned, well run hotel. Parking was away from the hotel but secure. We had a nice room overlooking the front but well sound proofed. Pool at the hotel but we did not use as limited time for us.Good breakfast with choice of breads and freshly squeezed orange juice. Would return to this hotel. Sarlat is a lovely place with lots going on, well worth a stay. Duck with everything!

Secure car parking couple of streets away. Really lovely hotel unfortunately we were only here one night would have loved to have stayed longer. Very clean and lovely comfortable bed.

Breakfast was excellent although one of the waitresses wasn't very pleasant but the other one more than made up for it.

Would definitely return.
