Beautiful building and grounds with a lovely terrace where we were able to get a beverage in the afternoon, everyone was pleasant and accomidating. Breakfast was mostly breads. We booked the "bagain" room for 108 E. After seeing the beautiful building we were pretty disappointed to be led up to the highest tower room #9 (four flights of stairs) with two very small IKEA type twin beds - something like a former maid's quarters. It was hot and stuffy and terribly uncomfortable - we didn't sleep at all as our feet dangled off the end of the beds - no romance whatsoever. Opening the windows was not really possible as the wind was fearsome. I guess worst of all was the fact that there were many keys left on the board downstairs - they could have easily upgraded us and made a very happy customer. This room should have been used as the last resort - no matter what was booked. Glimpes of other rooms looked better.
Grand building in a beautiful setting. Staff were attentive and helpful. Room was clean and spacious.
As old couple did not speak English at all, I could not communicate with them and then had bad experience. There was a big dog suddenly chasing me when I entered the garden. It was very scarely.
Magali (at reception) was the most courteous and professional hotel staff we have encountered in a long time. Made our stay even more enjoyable. Thank you! Layout of the room was not ideal, with second bedroom accessed only through bathroom. We had to get creative but made it work. :-)
the owners and staff are very welcoming and kind. Also we liked the salted swimmingpool and the terrace is beautiful. The breakfast was excellent as well as the home made apple pie! Thank you for that. Also thank you for the snacks that were offered by the house when we were having some white wine sitting on the terrace, besides the breakfast room. May be it's an idea to place the buffet against one of the long walls (i.e. in front of the kitchen door) in stead of in front of the fire place. Also I liked the mosaic on the floor, which is not seen now. May be some light snacks could be served at the terrace.
Everything Hot water was on and off. Finished my shower with cold water in chilly morning.
The building is magnificent, and in a great location. We elected to stay in the annex, which was absolutely fine, although in retrospect would prefer to have stayed in the chateau. We were impressed by the warmth and friendliness of the staff. Due to a strike by French Air Traffic control, we were unable to stay the for the first of our two nights booked - whilst this was unfortunate, the hotel did not charge for the 'lost' night. Although the hotel does not provide meals, an excellent continental breakfast was available.
I loved the surroundings and the beatiful setting. Enjoyed the swimming pool too. A shame that the hotel did not have a restaurant.
staff very friendly, breakfasts excellent with lots of variety no
Staff were very friendly. View was really lovely. Room was very hot (fan only available)
The hotel itself is is quiet and beautiful , it has a good size pool which we were unable to enjoy because of the weather . The location is excellent with easy reach (short drive) from main places of interests. No dinning facility option
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!
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 great location for this quiet small town Dont stay in beynac if you want a bustling town with things to do
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.
Clean, friendly, helpfull Early closure of restaurant
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).
Friendly helpful staff at a small hotel in an ideal location for sightseeing. We also enjoyed the breakfasts.
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
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.
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).
quiet peaceful and relaxing close to all dordognes attractions. sorry to leave but itinery only allowed 4 nights
CONVENIENCE, WONDERFUL OWNERS ESPECIALLY CELENE, GREAT LOCATION
Location wonderful,hotel, layout and design excellant, friendliness of owners and staff, excellant, general comfort superb Shower facility in room 27 poor. No shower curtain so room soaked every time we used the shower.
Friendly staff, exceptionally helpful, beautiful location. None
Pleasant reception. Tranquil country setting, with excellent view from room. Good sized and well designed room and bathroom. Short drive on repaved road to Sarlat. Reasonable breakfast given that we were one of only two customers. BBC sports. Wifi good. No air conditioning despite 30C weather in April - 'too early in season to turn on'. Thankfully, windows opened and room cooled off in night.
Super location,neat pool ,excellent communications. No.
Friendly family run. no
The hotel is located in a pastoral rural surrounding, easy to find due to clear signs. Nice and quite spacious room, well equiped with a large table, coffee/tea facilities, LCD television, effective airconditioning. Well equipped, very neat bathroom. Excellent bed. Breakfast is more than adequate for its cost.
Location superb Breakfast not good value for money charged. In fact, in France the cost of breakfast is becoming a major add-on to the room cost - 30% or more. Hotel could do with restaurant in view of location. Owner plans to add in future.
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.
hotel with the caracter of a chambred'hôtes -beautiful location - very gentle hosts -clean enquiet room
Quiet country surroundings and close proximity to Sarlat and the Dordogne No
Quiet, comfortable, friendly and very competent owners. Easy to get to and near the places we wished to visit.
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
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 !!!!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
Excellent restaurant Room was small and very hot. Pool area is through the basement and you pass by some very smelly bins to get to the pool. The pool area also only has chairs and no sun loungers.
What a delightful place and great little hotel. Highly recommend the restaurant in the hotel - after eating there on the first night we did not eat anywhere else during our stay. Our room looked over the Dordogne River and up towards the chateau on the cliffs above. Nothing
the bed was comfortable. The room had a balcony which was shared but still nice to look out onto. we booked a budget room and didn't realise that this meant 'budget' as in old and scruffy. the loo was separate from the shower and hand wash basin and as you lay in bed you looked at both cubicles. The loo door didn't close properly and the shower/washbasin cubicle did not have a door. The staircase leading up to the room was in need of decoration to the point where the wall paper was black.
Good restaurant and friendly service
The setting was superb, right beside the Dordogne. The Chateau above the hotel was a real highlight along with the gardens at Murreasyac? amazing buxus huge garden. The food/ menu could be more quality less quantity.
We were very pleasantly surprised - the hotel was much nicer than we had expected for such a reasonable room rate. The hotel is superbly located in the village - right beneath the castle and looking across to the river. (There's a free car park across the road, so no need to navigate narrow streets either!) The staff were all really friendly, the room was nice enough, clean and warm, and the restaurant was brilliant. (Massive portions and good selection. Good breakfasts too.) We stayed for three days and used the hotel as a base to explore the area - had a fabulous time and would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay there. We thought the hotel was excellent.
The helpfulness of Christophe and Sarissa, the managers. The food was excellent in the restaurant. We also loved the hotel location and the availability of parking near the hotel.
Enjoyed the delightful atmosphere and excellent menu.
beautiful location, great food, lovely owners
Christophe was very attentive
We were welcomed to the hotel as individuals, and not just a couple who had interrupted a receptionist from, no doubt, more important things to do. Our presence in the hotel was always acknowledged, and made us feel important as individuals, and that the hotel staff had a concern in our wellbeing. None really. A lift would have been helpful, but it's absence didn't create undue difficulty for us. Slightly wobbly chair in bedroom - joints needed re-gluing.
The food was excellent. There was an airco in the room, what is great in the summer. The restaurant was haut cuisine, but a little odd since the quality of the hotel / rooms did not match.
right in the middle of dordogne country. villages chateaus canoeing walking.it was perfect not realy it was pipiculy french
Our welcome and that the man spoke very good English. Everything was very clear,the breakfast was excellent and the room very clean and air conditioning was very welcome! Our double bed seemed rather more like a three quarter one and for two adults did seem small.
