The garden. the ambience. the staff and beautiful food all excellent.
It was so pleasant and comfortable. Food and food service was wonderful and fresh. Nice walk into the village and museum and great location to explore all the prehistoric sites plus the church beyond the the back garden is not to be missed as a fortified church. The pool could use an update. The other guest reviews seem harsh. We had a room overlooking front courtyard and there was no road noise and we stayed for 4 nights. Parking was limited in regular space but enough spaces on sides of hotel.
The quality/design of the rooms, fixtures and fittings - in particular a very comfy bed. The facilities of the hotel/gardens were really nice.
We loved the feeling of decor, the proprietors, the amazing garden with pool - and the food was a gastronome's delight - impeccable service and quality - presentation - and the outdoor terrace are beyond description.
We booked the junior siute for our 25th wedding anniversary and were delighted with the accommodation. Had dinner onthe night of our anniversary and though the service was good the sommalier lost interest leaving us to pour the second half of the bottle ourselves.
Our room was very comfortable and suited our needs well. Access to and from parking was a little difficult, especially at night. The garden area was very lovely. We ate one dinner in the restaurant, which was disappointing as to quality and value. Our meal was not consistent with a "fine dining" reputation.
Especially, dinner was good !! It's small problem but there's only one English speaker
Lovely hotel, very comfortable lounge and restaurant, bed room spacious but poor sound proofing between rooms!
I loved how the rock came into the hotel itself, making it a part of the reason I visited this area. The food was wonderful as well. Wish I had been there when it was warmer so I could try the lovely looking pool. I think the breakfast should be included in the price.
The hotel was quiet & calm & relaxing. The food was good, the staff very good and the ambience excellent. We did not have enough pillows & what we had were not very good quality. We had to have the window closed because of the noise of the traffic over the railway crossing but we were too warm & lacked fresh air during the night.
Valerie (co-owner with husband Laurent) speaks English well and was very helpful. The hotel is within walking distance of several archaeological sites and near decorated caves we visited. Laurent is the chef, and dinner here was my favorite of the entire trip to France.
Room was lovely, staff pleasant and excellent value for money. Highly recommended. Our room faced the road and was a bit loud. Also no air conditioning and it was quite hot (although this is common in Europe.)
Good restaurant, great location
A very homely, comfortable and welcoming host. Very nice spacious room with nice oputlook. Will definetly return. No.
In general, our stay was positive. We had a very good dinner in the restaurant and the staff was quite cordial. There definitely needs to be an elevator in the hotel. We had people with bad knees and bad backs in our party and had to lean on the staff for baggage carrying. The twin beds could have more firm mattresses.
Location, facilities (swimming pool) and friendiness of staff. no air conditioning in room
Excellent location with a great swimming pool. Triple room was quite cramped and decor was dated. It was expensive for the facilities.
Quiet location but very convenient for village - 5 minutes walk, which has all the facilities you would need. Staff could not be more helpful Storage for clothes is a little limited.
Traditional hotel. Rooms well furnished bright and airy, friendly staff, secure parking. A five minute walk to the centre of Saumur - really worth a visit
Well organised, easy access to rooms, good pool for swimming, friendly & informative staff, good breakfast available without fuss.
It was a nice location within walking distance of village, shops and restaurants and with a nice pool area. The decor was extremely dated on the inside of the hotel. Bathrooms were small and lacked ventilation, drain smells. No A/C
It was a charming setting and the staff was very helpful. the room was perfect for the 3 of us. The only problem was that we needed to have the windows open for fresh air and the street noise prevented us from getting much sleep. Perhaps a fan would help. We had one in London and it was a great and easy solution.
The staff were wonderful, really helpful, warm and welcoming. Really some of the nicest people I have ever been met in a hotel. It was handily situated, attractive and clean and had a nice feel. The reception and exterior was lovely.The breakfast was good value also. I didnt really like the room, which I didnt mention to the staff because they were so nice. The beds were very soft and had a french style bolster, the room had mad flowery wallpaper and no built in shower, although the shower head in the bath was adequate it wasnt aesthetically pleasing. Better beds, plain coloured walls and a shower on the wall would make it perfect.
Relaxed and friendly staff made stay there very enjoyable. Hotel is certainly the best positioned in the town. Great swimming pool and gardens. Would not say we did not like but felt there was a lack of choice of breakfast items.
Receptionist spoke good english and provided helpful information about the area.The swimming pool was very nice and clean, just a bit cold, but the weather was lousy anyway during our stay.The hotel groiunds are well maintained and there is a lovely little garden at the back, leading down to a stream. I would have preferred a duvet on the bed, rather than blankets. The bathroom did not have adequate shower facility, only a bath. A kettle in the room would have been helpful.
Hotel Mounea is a quiet little town close to all of the attractions. The managers of the hotel are wonderful and accommodating. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.
Friendliness of all, situation was stunning with garden with tremendous view. Room was spacious and airy. No
Very helpful staff and quiet location.
Located in an ancient village, excellent views, landlord is most pleasant. GPS is a bit slow, we used tom-tom, it got us there alright, but you have to wait for signal will catch up with your driving. very poor insulation, feels like everyone in the same room, you can hear clearly your neighbours bathing and using toilets, snoring, etc. However, you feel OK about noise, it is a good place to stay.
Quite countryside location but in easy reach of all the sites Rooms were a bit cramped.
Very pleasant staff, relaxing and enjoyable hotel.
Excellent location within village and Perigord Noir area. Very good food, if you could afford it! Friendly, helpful staff. No wall point to put shower head on, when having a shower. Toilet not fixed to floor securely. Small bath. Not much in way of a comfortable longe area inside the hotel.
A wonderful hotel, great location. Polite and helpful staff.
Attitude of staff and restaurant nd food quality. Room and particularly bathroom were too small.
Coffee was lukewarm for breakfast but this was rectified the next day.
We loved the service, the food, the central location. We thought it was gorgeous and we are already planning our next trip. We had the junior suite great value for you money. Please note we upgraded to the junior suite We enjoyed it all!!
Nice and comfortable rooms
Close to the river and an easy walk to restaurants. Free parking behind the hotel.
THe staff were very welcoming and helpfuk, the location was exelent
. insects in the bed. Too much traffic noise during the night
In summer only the "annexe" is used, with some large rooms at higher prices. The annexe is only 300 meter from center town. The town is very central in the perigord noir, with enough restaurants but still small and quiet. The staff was helpful. Although the more expensive rooms are larger, with fridge, they lack international T V channels, and especially WiFi connection. For WiFi you have to go to the hotel, 300 meters away. These two things can be solved easily, which would make the annexe more attractive.
The hotel was booked for 3 people and the room was not ready upon checkin. The extra bed which was brought in late was in poor condition. We were booked into the annex which was a basement level room. The room was not very clean.
Long time getting served with evening meal
We were told to move to the annex, which is 5 minutes from the main building. Also, at annex, we could not use WiFi and that we could not pay the bill.... It was very inconvenient.... The refrigerator was a bit dirty...
nice place, excellent breakfast, Difficult to find the hotel, especially in the evening
Comfortable ro0m and a good dinner We had to walk a long way for breakfast, and would have found this unpleasant in wet weather.
The hotel manager was not really friendly. The other staff was friendly.
The hotel is surrounded by pleasant countryside. It is only a few miles away from Sarlat & Les Eyzies.
Check in was untill 7pm but I got there at 11:30pm and the nice woman let us in
Location in the countryside,however was situated away from towns so use of a car is essential.Peace and quiet,nice swimming pool. Very dated decor in the rooms.Very clean but a little dismal due to decoration.
Beautiful countryside and pleasant walking.
Landscape and tuoristic amenities close to it , relaxing and quiet enviroment specially for children ( minigolf and swimmingpool), great individual attention (few rooms), good and not very expensive dinner. Slightly old furniture and small TV, but nothing to complain considering the two stars category of the hotel.
The staff warmly welcome us. The room is confortable designed with a simple and old country style. The view on the valley from the balcony was very relaxing. The bathroom is split in 2 rooms (wc and shower), but the shower is modern and functional. The restaurant at the hotel is very good. The cleaning of the room could be improved.
The hotel is well situated, close to several points of interest. The staff were helpful, food was good. Overall, a very positive experience.
Lovely manager, lovely countryside and great food at dinner. Seems like a traditional French rural hotel. Kids loved pool and mimi golf. Room decor a bit dated.
Clean great location for this quiet small town Dont stay in beynac if you want a bustling town with things to do
Friendly helpful staff at a small hotel in an ideal location for sightseeing. We also enjoyed the breakfasts.
The building was interesting and in a good location, and was a good value. The owner was very nice and accommadating. For instance he picked us up and dropped us back off at the train station 10 km away. As a two star hotel you can't expect everything to be perfect. The shower had a broken sprayer, so it wouldn't stay in place on the vertical rod. The room decor needed some updating (dark and in need of minor maintenance).
The location was amazing, right underneath a huge castle on a cliff. Our room was right on the road and although there was some traffic noise in the morning, it was great to open the big shutters and lean out into the street. Parking wasn't a problem, free after 7pm. Although there were a number of restaurants nearby we drove to a nearby camping ground for a real value for money meal. Sarlat is only 9kms away and easy to find. Chose this hotel based on price and closeness to Sarlat. Was gobsmacked as we drove into the village and saw the castle on the hill, like staying in a fairytale! The size of the room was almost claustrophic. If the removed the enormous freestanding wardrobe from the bedroom it would allow a bit more space and if a wardrobe is necessary just have the one in the bathroom. The suitcase stand is located in the bathroom right beside the washbasin - a problem if you splash water about. Our room was right behind the reception desk and as there was no one there people arriving thought that our room was the office. This was bit embarrassing. Didn't have breakfast as there didn't appear to be anything other than wheat products (no yoghurt, cheese etc for gluten free diets).
sImple, no frills, nice, clean place to stay. a bit noisy but its not the hotels fault it is just near one of the main roads
Great location - Beynac is a gorgeous village! (Access to car parking was good too, if you don't mind a bit of a walk up hill!) Breakfast was included, but I never did manage to find out where it was served!
Beynac is a very pretty small town, complete with its own castle. Village well worth exploring. The photos indicated that the hotel was overlooking water, when in actual we could only obtain breakfast at that site. Hotel rooms very small, particularly the shower which was very difficult to get in and out of. We had not expected to be so cramped.
Air con, very clean, good location in centre of village. Breakfast is not in the restaurant its above a stairwell in the hotel - very strange. No parking.
Clean, friendly, helpfull Early closure of restaurant
pretty village. convenient. Photographs indicated that it was by the river. The hotel was 100 meters up a hill away from the river - the restaurant of the hotel was by the river.
Its location is quite good. The village is nice, but specially due to its surroundings: the river, the villages of the region,... The personal was nice and the swimmingpool is great. We ate in its restaurant, and the meal was good. The worst thing is our case was the bed: they should be urgently changed. It is an old-fashion hotel, but somehow charming at the sametime...
Friendly staff, and the view from the room was fantastic. The rooms were nice, and spacious.
Position in the city and surrounding area (lot of sites to visit by car: caves, castles etc)
the location is very good, the staff friendly and helpful, we did not like the standard of comfort this is not 3star quality. the rooms are basic decor poor in need of refurbishment, menu lacks imagination
The staff couldn't of been anymore friendly or helpfull ! The rooms are big and spacious and the view was beautiful (we booked a river view room) Although the rooms are big and spacious it was far too warm, there isn't any airconditioning and it's a must in France in August!!!!
The staff was excellent, from the reception to the restaurant servers to the lounge/bar attendants and housekeeping. They could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The location on the river is fabulous, and the proximity to restaurants, the marché en plein air, the boulangeries and the delights of the Vézère Valley are exceptional. Definitely request a room overlooking the river. The roof top terrasse was spectacular at sunset. The rooms could use some updating, but everything was clean and in working order. All non-smoking rooms would be an advantage. If you're not used to traveling outside the US, you may not be as pleased with this hotel as we were.
location superb Standard of service only adequate, certain areas grubby and badly in need of refurbishment. O.K. for a one night stop-over which is a shame as Le Bugue is an ideal base for visiting the area and the hotel could be a wonderful attraction
We were made extremely welcome in this very family orientated hotel.
Very pleasant, helpful staff who had a cheerful attitude with customers and each other. Very well located
Tranquility and location No dinner served. The bathroom in No. 4 was too open for us and not very private for the toilet!! It could easily be enclosed.
Quiet country surroundings and close proximity to Sarlat and the Dordogne No
Lovely old farmhouse and building in attractive setting. Very friendly and helpful owner. Wonderful having the swimming pool as it was weather was hot. Not a complaint but if you want an evening meal you need to arrange with owner before you arrive
hotel with the caracter of a chambred'hôtes -beautiful location - very gentle hosts -clean enquiet room
Quiet, comfortable, friendly and very competent owners. Easy to get to and near the places we wished to visit.
The hotel is cosy and beautifully set. Ths stuff is extremly helpful and friendly. Excellent location just in the midst of Perigod attaractions 1. The room was too small. 2. shower with curtain..... 3.no window in the room 4. No lobby !!!!
good value, good location
excellent staff and service
Nice family-run hotel. We particularly enjoyed the mannerly dog next door at dinner every evening. No lift. Our room on the top floor was a long climb with heavy suitcases.
The location of the Hotel and friendliness of the staff. Not really
Freindly and helpful staff. English speaking manager. Very good location, both locally and for trweling in the area. Food in the restaurant was a culinary achievement. A recommended choice for staying a few days in the Dordogne area.
Hotel staff were always so eager to please would have liked the star rating to have appeared on the website
Staff were extremely friendly and the rooms were very clean. The hotel was warm.
Charming, well-located small hotel with an excellent restaurant. Christophe will make you special dinners for the regular cost. He also speaks English very well and is anxious to help. Hotel is very close to aquarium and other attractions for kids.
Very friendly, excellent food, excellent value. Highly recommended.
Excellent restaurant/food No lift (acsender)
Fabulous location. Swimming pool and room beautiful. Dinner very good. Breakfast poor with little choice. Room bathrooms not working, leaking shower. Too many fake flowers.
Location was good for touring the Dordogne area. Pool was nice after a hot day sightseeing. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent - superb food and service. Morning checkout was slow due to only one person doing breakfast service and reception.
The pool was absolutely wonderful. The food brilliant & room ok. The hotel in a good location. No drawers to put clothes in & due to the heat a fan would have been usseful. No extracter fan in the bathroom which, once you had had a shower made the room unbearable.
We had a room with a balcony on which there was a table, chairs, lounge chairs etc... It was great to sit out there and sip a bottle of wine looking at the chateaux lit up at night. I also loved the fact that there was a small fridge in the room...... now if only there had been a coffee maker and internet access for those of us who do not carry laptops or Ipads...
The room was clean and convenient to the castle area. There is a pool that was sparkling clean but too cold to use in June. We will probably try another hotel in the area when we return. Our room was on the third floor and no elevator, it was hard to negotiate with a large suitcase. We ate dinner the first evening and paid a great deal for very badly prepared chicken which was extremely tough and did not come off the bone. The vegetables were unimaginative and the desert was rather bland. We did not eat there again. We had to ask three times for more bath tissue, a light was broken in the bathroom over the sink and there were two other lights bulbs out in the room. Children who lived at the hotel woke us one morning. There were no extra plugs to charge cameras and cell phones in our room.
The staff were pleasant. The room we had was v good and large. Lot of plumbing noises from other rooms! Breakfast. We thought the breakfast was poor. We were considering going out for breakfast as there was no fresh bread and the menu was limited. We did point this out to the staff.
Good central location for key sights in Perigord Noir. Next to busyish main road, so some traffic noise in rooms on the road side of the hotel. Fantastic views over to nearby castles, so the name of the hotel is a good description. Nice terrace (with pool) with views over the valley and to the hotels. Good restaurant, with lovely food, which was a highlight of our stay in the area. Compact bedroom, with limited storage space for clothes, so felt a little like living out of a suitcase, given that we were there 3 nights.
We stayed for one night at the end of our holiday, it was the perfect place to stay. The room was clean and comfortable and the view superb, overlooking fields of corn and asparagas, and at night the surrounding chateaux were lit, very romantic. The swimming pool was very welcome on a hot day and clean. The staff were pleasant and at least one spoke very good English. I would stay again. Breakfast was ok but small for the price!
