“Great location in beautiful town”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here over the first weekend in May with 6 cycling friends. The hotel is in a great location, very central, right at the end of the Main Street. It is actually within the area occupied by the large and bustling Saturday market - which is wonderful for atmosphere and shopping but not so good if you want to arrive or depart on Saturday morning. The hotel is very comfortable although the rooms are small - I was in room 110 as a single occupant which was fine but it would have been cramped for 2. We dined out every night in town - so much to see it seemed a shame to eat in. Breakfast was good - just about the only place in town if you want more than a coffee and croissant. Spa is very nice and the (smallish) pool very clean and welcoming!

Stayed May 2014, traveled with friends

Stayed here recently after visit 2006 when superb vintage staff in superb vintage hotel. No point complaining this year because these people would not even understand what has been done to this Monument of French culture. Gone the lift (fantastic and ancient) Gone the old boys who waited at table and the the charming old dining room and all that signified the charm of this part of la Belle France.
Times must change!
Modernity however is ill suited to hospitality. This place is now cold, trendy but has lost its heart.
How sad...
What a shame.
But it was popular before this happened so I cannot understand how it is that French people would do this to a National Treasure.

Stayed 5 nights in this hotel. Was on the second floor facing the town. Lovely room with a new view and no noise. Did not have tea or coffee making facilities though. but there was a little tea/coffee set up in the pool ,spa,sauna area ( which was great) so I just darted down the stairs and helped myself.
Breakfasts very nice although there were one or two stern matrons working there that were abit rude...if you went into their area ( which wasnt marked out well).
beautifully decorated throughout.
Bar/snack area nice and alittle pricey, but it was nice to sit there and the outside veranda area with a drink or snack and watch the world go by.
They are not keen on you hanging washing in the room! too bad !
but overall I would recommend this place.. absolutely tops in position..

Room Tip: Found the front rooms quiet even though you are right in the centre of town.

The Plaza claims to be the oldest hotel in Sarlat, and it may be, but the modern refurbishment makes in extremely comfortable as well.

Its difficult to find anything to criticise - the staff are helpful and welcoming, from the receptionists, the barman to the breakfast attendant. The rooms are comfortable and stylish - the beds are excellent to sleep in.

The location is excellent, only a short walk into the medieval square and its surrounding alleys and restaurants.

The only minor issue is that they do not seem to serve dinner in the evening, but with many great restaurants within 100m, that's not an issue.

This hotel was very good, the rooms were comfortable and the town was lovely. Breakfast was very expensive and although we don't usually go out, in this case we walked down the main street and found a friendly little bar who made us good coffee to go with the pastry we bought in the baker just opposite, at a fraction of the cost.

The front desk staff were efficient but not over friendly. A smile costs nothing, but the hotel was perfectly comfortable.

We were thrilled at the position of the Plaza Madeleine. Just a walk across the small park and we were in the old city. The hotel was lovely. The rooms quite spacious and we had to move from one room to the other during our stay but both rooms were wonderful. Breakfast rate was too expensive and we just walked out into the town for a perfect simple breakfast.
Staff spoke english and they were all very helpful. We would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Both rooms were perfect. One at the back overlooking the pool and the other in the front overlookin...

We found this hotel very nice and convenient specially when you arrive as you don't have to deal with complicated driving like in many other old cities. It's right at the entrance of Sarlat on the main road, but it's a quiet area, you just cross the road and you'll find the main commercial - pedestrian street. The hotel's car park is only two blocks away which is fine and also a good deal. The room is spacious enough and very clean. Breakfast is basic but fine and the restaurant is quite pleasant. Staff very helpful and efficient. This hotel is really a good value, I wouldn't' hesitate to book here if we ever come back to Sarlat (which we'd love)
