“Beautiful Place & Amazing Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

My girlfriend and I were travelling around Europe for 2 months so to help manage our expenses we decided to go to the restaurant but stay at the campsite by the river.

I was relying upon the gps to get us to the correct place, but unfortunately i didn't realise that there are 2 Belcastels in France that are approximately 2 hours apart. My girlfriend was getting a little testy as we drove from the incorrect Belcastel to the correct Belcastel but she became silent when she saw the little village by the river.

We put up our tent, got showered and then went to the restaurant.

The food at the restaurant was amazing with the staff very focused on providing a very high level of service. All the courses were very good, the cheese cart gave us the opportunity to try some local cheeses that we found quite difficult to find elsewhere in France. We had earlier been to a 3 Michelin star restaurant in Paris and the overall experience at Restaurant du Vieux Pont was just as good.

It was a quite unique experience, walking from the restaurant back to the campsite over the beautiful bridge in the middle of the village.

This was one of the highlights on our 2 month European holiday.

We visited Belcastel last week and were lucky enough to dine in the restaurant. It was the best dinning experience we have experienced!Better than a 3 star restaurant we have eaten in. We will definitely go back to sample the delights of the hotel.

Locale is very quaint, rooms very clean, great view of the river from room #7 and excellent breakfast. Great value in this small lovely village. Our room had a king size bed, AC and super quiet. Could not ask for a better place to rest...

What a charming place. The small village is lovely. The hotel is great. Very clean, lovely modern rooms. All in tip top shape. Outdoors there are picnic tables along the river to enjoy. Our meal at the restaurant was wonderful. The best of our trip. Everything perfectly prepared and presented as well as impeccable service. I would highly recommend both the hotel and restaurant.

Wonderful stay in a most picturesque village. The owner directed us over the old narrow bridge and escorted us to our room. The room overlooked the river and bridge while the castle, perched on the hill above, kept watch over us. The room was large, had modern bathroom, toiletries and sitting area. We ate in the restaurant the second night. What a treat. Service was impeccable, the sommelier recommended the appropriate wines to compliment our dining choices, food and presentation outstanding..best lamb ever, the cheese service was great because we got to try local cheeses that we were not familiar with. Desserts were excellent. Needless to say, three and a half hours later, we were quite satisfied as we strolled over the bridge on a crisp clear evening. it was a lovely stay. It lived up to and beyond all the high acclaim.
I also recommend going up to tour the castle. Fascinating history and restoration. Self guided tour with a printed guide in several languages. Fairy tale views.

located opposite the castle grounds next to the river.
Rooms are modern with stylish furniture and very spacious. An excellent and generous breakfast can be served in the garden next to the river (great!), in the room or in the small dining area. The breakfast order is filled in advance according to your choice. The hotel restaurant (1 star Michelin, on the other side of the bridge) serves great food with a wonderful range of menus

My wife and I stayed here for one night only as the hotel was full on the following night.
The village is really stunning and the room perhaps even more so. The restaurant is just so good that a week later we are still talking about it. The bedroom was of a very high quality and the breakfast is probably the best we have experienced any where in France. As the say, you get what you pay for, but don't tell everyone!
