Very friendly, very nice hotela and hotelier
Posted Mar 24, 2011
We stayed one night in mid March 2011 at this hotel at the end of our holiday, before flying home from nearby Bergerac airport to the UK. We knew March was a quiet month for this hotel and others in the area, and thus the restaurant would be closed and there would be a skeleton staff on duty.
So we were pleasantly surprised with the high level of friendly service from the owner Monsieur Leonard, who was there by himself. M. Leonard took the trouble to e-mail us with instructions for our arrival, and when we didn't respond (because we were not checking e-mail) he called our home number at his own expense and left a message, which we picked up in good time.
On arrival, he called around to various restaurants to find out which ones had a table free for our dinner that evening. He made the booking for us and gave us detailed instructions on how to get there. The next morning he served us a lovely French breakfast, again all by himself.
Last but not least, the hotel - a large old maison de maitre - is a delight. It is easy to find on the main road from Agen to Bergerac, but still very quiet. It is also very close to the viillage centre, so an easy walk to see the sights. Our room, and the rest of the hotel, was decorated beautifully, with high quality fittings and a very comfortable bed.
I will definitely use this hotel again if I am in the area, and would recommend anyone else to do so without reservation... except of course, to use Expedia for the Reservation...8-)
