“Choice spot above the Dordogne Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

As other reviews indicate this is a special place of charming quality, fine food, and an amazing overview of the Dordogne Valley in Domme, France. This is an old and quaint town with local charm and a funky bazaar on Saturdays. English is understood and the staff are friendly and willing to make your stay pleasant.

Room Tip: Ask for the corner room in the older section with the balcony.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

The hotel is located right at the cliff's edge of Domme overlooking the Dordogne, with the dining room, patios and several of the bedrooms looking out to this spectacular view. The staff are exceptionally friendly (more so than any other Frence hotel I've stayed at) and their English is fantastic. The decor throughout the hotel is very elegant, almost quite grand in style. The rooms are delightful, clean and comfortable with wifi available. Finally the food is superb, if a little pricey, but it's what you'd expect from a Michelian star rated restaurant.

All around excellent hotel: outstanding situation for the surroundings, the view on the Dordogne valley and calm. Our room was relatively large, nicely decorated and very well maintained. The hosts are extremely friendly and the restaurant excellent. We loved the two nights spent in Domme to visit the region.

My daughter and I stayed at Hotel l'Esplanade for two nights. We loved the view out our window of the Dordogne Valley. When the sun shines it is simply striking. Our room was comfortable and although the window shouldn't be opened because of insects, the air conditioner kept things noisy but cool.

If you are a foodie, make reservations at the restaurant. Cuisine is experimental, interesting, tasty, local, and memorable. Most of the staff is bi- or tri-lingual, good at their jobs and friendly in the reserved way of the French.

We enjoyed being in Domme after the tourists left for the day. Its charm quotient goes up threefold without mobs of tour groups roaming the streets.

You will not be disappointed. Domme is beautiful and l'Esplanade is the place to stay. It will help finding your way if you have a GPS. This area of France was our favorite after spending three weeks traveling around France in May. Would definitely recommend May. The tourist invasion had not begun.
