“Horrible attic room”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2008

Stayed here on Saturday 14/6, booked by the Bergerac Tourist Office. It was a little late and this was the last room in the house, we were advised it was on the 2nd floor but that didn't seem a problem to us. It was a 3* and we thought it would be nice. How wrong we were. The room was in the attic and it was awful. Small, with a bed really only fit for 1 person never mind 2. 1 tiny mirror in the bathroom to accompany the tiny bath. It was a midget's room. Disgusting floor covering and a tv that didn't work. There is NO way you would want to spend time in this dark hole. Deeply depressing. I don't know what the other rooms are like, but if you are going to be put here, just go somewhere else. The only redeeming feature was the restaurant. We did have a nice meal. Although, it's extremely quiet and VERY stuffy. We are not in the first flush of youth and thought it was DEAD. Generally in this area of France the accommodation and breakfasts suck, no other way to put it. We were so disallusioned, we drove to spain. Now, check out the 3* hotels there. More like 5 in comparison to anything you will find in this area. When i mentioned my disappoinment on the way out, it was only greeted with disdain. I would not return!

The big plus for this hotel is it's location. It's the perfect place to relax and unwind being on a quiet hillside amongst the vineyards and trees of the area. Despite this, it is only a 10 minute drive to the centre of Bergerac, so a great base for sightseeing as well.

Our large room had one double and 2 single beds but other than that was a bit sparse, had no aircon and was dimly lit. The beds are nearing the end of their useful life and my husband and I ended up using separate beds as we kept meeting in the middle of the very small double. Bathroom was dated but adequate with plenty of hot water at any time.

The pool area looked nice but some of the chairs were broken - I guess we were here out of season. However we did have a lovely trek on horseback through the forest (magical) as there is a riding and livery stables adjacent to the hotel. If you enjoy horseriding, this place is ideal.

Breakfast was fine but doesn't compare well to other 3* hotel offerings in France. Dinner however, was fantastic. Every part of the meal was wonderful including the wine recommendations. In France, I always have to ask for something not specified on the menu for my vegan daughter - she was not disappointed either.

In summary, it's a charming place, if a little dated and you can overlook this due to the fabulous location and helpfulness of the staff. I had a lovely weekend and would definitely stay here again.

Well, I tried to stay at this hotel. I made a guaranteed reservation for two nights one week ahead of time. The hotel looked absolutely gorgeous from the brochure, an old castle in the middle of the Dordogne forest... but when I got there the receptionist said she had not received any reservation and the hotel was full. After much bickering with me and several phone calls with the (very reliable) German operator that had made the reservation, she put me up in a horrible ferroconcrete hotel on a downtown square, which was extremely noisy at night. Absolutely unreliable!
