Esplanade has best view of the Domme valley

4 out of 5
by from Maine
Posted Oct 25, 2015
Pros: Great view of the valley. Excellent food
Cons: Friendliness and knowledge of the staff.
Location: The caves of Lascaux are 40 minutes away. Sarlat a gorgeous medieval town nearby is great to visit on Saturday, which is market day.
Switched the room assigned to me by booking through Expedia to one with a better view, since the Esplanade has the best view of the valley stretching out below Domme. Pity to miss it for lack of 10 euros a night. Food at the restaurant was expensive but excellent, if a little rich. Staff were friendly if a little rigid. Not the warmest reception but good enough for France. May return with others from my family.

Lovely room in beautiful Domme

Posted Sep 28, 2015
We had a really nice stay here and would definitely recommend it. The room had a really nice and spacious bathroom with a tub, comfortable bed, and is just steps from amazing views of the valley and right in the lovely downtown of Domme. One tip, book early for dinner reservations if you'd like to eat at the hotel's restaurant.

Dordogne views

Pros: The views. The setting.
Location: Perfect setting above the Dordogne, and peace and quiet once the day tourists have left. Plenty of parking, with charges only during the day.
Fantastic setting high above the Dordogne. Chose the valley view for our room, and well worth it. Tremendous views. Sit outside for your evening meal, and take in those views over a quality meal.

Would stay again!

Lovely hotel. We stayed for a wedding in a nearby village wth our 8 month old daughter. The staff were excellent with us and the baby and catered for all of our needs. The room was spotless and they provided us with a baby cot. If we could have changed one thing it would have been to have a kettle in the room as this would have helped with the baby but they provided us with water as and when we needed so it wasn't a huge problem. Really lovely hotel and would definitely stay again.

Nice hotel with a world class view of the valley.

Pros: View, view, view
Cons: They could accept that everyone is not in love with fois gras and out of proportion prices.
The hotel is located in the city of Domme which is located on a cliff over looking the Dordogne valley. Our room was on the valley side with a perfect view. It was small by American standard, but pretty much normal for European rooms. The service and check in went great and our stay was about as smooth as you can get until the last night. It seems that we offended the staff by not eating at their highly rated restaurant. We stayed 3 nights and ate breakfast there only once and no dinners. The truth is 16 Euros each for breakfast which was a plain omelet, some cold cuts, pastries, coffee and juice seemed high. Less than 100 yards away we got pastries, and coffee for less than 10 Euros. Still we ate there once for the atmosphere. As for dinner it was 35 and 70 Euros each, for a menu very heavenly weighted toward goose liver. 50 yards away we got a great salad, salmon, and creme brulee for less than 20 each. Had they not clearly gotten offended by our eating choices, I'd say this was a great stay. Still if you can get past the "feelings" issue this is a wonderful place to stay if scenery is important. I can't imagine a better view from a hotel.

Typically French hotel, very charming.

Pros: Very quiet and peaceful.
Cons: See above re bathroom.
Location: Perfectly positioned overlooking Dordogne river with beautiful surrounding countryside and lots of magnificent chateaux.
Stayed here for two nights in March 2015. The hotel was exactly as described on the website with wonderful views across the Dordogne valley. The proprietress made us extremely welcome and we found the whole experience delightful. Restaurant was very pricey but have to say the evening meal was a gourmet delight and the service couldn't be faulted. Only complaint was that there was no shower screen or curtain on the bath in our en suite facility, making it impossible to shower without flooding the bathroom. Would certainly recommend this hotel, and Domme is an enchanting medieval village.

A well run hotel in a fabulous location

Pros: Decor, location, views, croissants
We chose this hotel as a one night stopover on our way South. Right in the centre of Domme, the hotel is well maintained in a beautiful old building with fabulous views over the Dordogne valley. As vegetarians we were also delighted to find a welcoming little Pizzeria just away from the centre of town, an essential plus.
