Great location but dated roomPosted Aug 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is really a fancy restaurant with accommodation. The 'shower in bath without curtain' syndrome did not appeal but the air conditioning (in a heat wave) most certainly did!

Gorgeous little town with spectacular view. Superb service and excellent food. Parking can be a challenge.

Disappointing HotelPosted Jul 16, 2013
The hotel is in a premium location, looking over the Dordogne valley. If you get one of the rooms facing the valley on the first floor, the views will be magical. If not, you will be stuck in a hotel that has very little to recommend it. The hotel is in dire need of updating: bathrooms, paint, carpets, lighting, etc. The breakfasts should be amazing--looking out over the valley before all of the tourists have arrived--but instead they are just a mediocre assortment of pastries and orange juice. We couldn't dine at the hotel restaurant for dinner due to the high winds. Bottom line: only book if you can get a room on the first floor over looking the valley and you can live with a dated room.

This hotel is not for everyonePosted Nov 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
If your GPS doesn’t find the location just keep heading uphill until you reach the top. It’s by the church. Parking is provided by the town around the hotel which is pay-parking, but apparently no one checks. We found that room was very clean, comfortable and modern. The only negative in the room was that they there are 2 types of heating and the one in the bathroom gets switched off by timer. You can override this, but only if you know how. So our first morning was a bit cold, but once we figured it out with the landlord’s help, the bathroom was nice and toastie the next day. I don’t recommend the restaurant. While the food is good it’s not as excellent as the price suggests, and the portions are small so don’t go expecting to be well fed. We didn’t have breakfast there, opting instead to patronize the local café which had Quiche and coffee at a much reduced price. I must say, though, that the views from the restaurant are stunning and may be worth the price of one meal there. On the whole I found the atmosphere a tad snobby for my taste, but others may enjoy the formality. I would stay again.

This was a pleasant surprise, the town and hotel are like stepping back in time. The views were beautiful, the hotel was quaint and the food is excellent. The owner and service were very helpful.

Perfect romantic stay in the DordognePosted Sep 29, 2012 on Hotels.com
Wonderful hotel on a cliff overlooking the Dordogne river and valley. Sophie, the manager/owner, provided perfect service and suggestions for touring. The restaurant is outstanding, with superb food and good service. Terrific value.

A beautiful area and so convenientPosted Sep 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
We visited L'Esplanade Hotel for a two night stay before going on for a further week in Sarlat and were delighted with the wonderful views and the surrounding countryside. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous and the accommodation first class.
