Have to say it takes me hours and hours of searching before I think I have the right place to stay, therefore my initial view of this hotel was very disappointing. We arrived after 8 pm so there was no receptionist but they had left our rooms open with keys in them. The triple room our adult children were sharing...

Stayed overnight on our way to the Ile de Rey. After a long journey it was great to relax by the pool prior to walking for 10 minutes downhill into Sarlat. Walking back was made easier by several glasses of Leffe! A lovely hotel overlooking the town and with comfortable rooms and excellent breakfasts. Very friendly, helpful staff made our...

The hotel is delightful, in a quiet location with very pleasant English speaking staff. Yes it's up a hill but only takes 15 min. Walk down to the centre of Sarlat. Allow 20 mins uphill !!. The rooms have a minibar where you can keep your own drinks. The pool is very well maintained and is overlooked by a walnut...

We stayed for a few nights on our way to Niort. Lovely little hotel with pool. Very clean and modern decor. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Has a fridge in the room but no kettle, which is really the only downside. Situated 10 mins from Sarlat town. A bit of a steep walk coming back up. Great breakfast and...

I have spent few days at this hotel. Next to the city center, in the middle of green trees and plantes. Breakfast every morning next to the pool, the staff is very gentle the services are good. For sure next time we come back to Dordogne we will choose again this hotel

We booked this hotel due to the Tripadvisor ratings and were not disappointed. The main point for us was that it had a nice pool area which we wanted to relax by on the days we were not travelling around the Dordogne area . As most people were out during the day we had the pool to ourselves until mid...

After reading about the traffic congestion in Sarlat (especially on market days), I purposely looked for a hotel that outside the old town center, would have on-site parking, and have easy access in and out of town. Hotel Bon Encontre seemed to fit the bill, as well as being described as clean, comfortable and accommodating. All is true! Yes, it...

I stayed here in April and it was perfect for my visit to Sarlat. I needed a quiet place to rest and recharge my batteries. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful making my 3 night stay very pleasant. My room was very clean and well presented and the views were super. I was on my own on this...

We stayed at this small, family run, hotel for a week and it was extremely relaxing to say the least. The room was a generous size as was the bed. It was very clean and comfortable and there was no unnecessary interference from staff or cleaners although they were always available if you needed them. The pool and the pool...

This hotel is just outside the old town centre up a steep hill. But that suited us just fine. It is a 7 minute walk into town and a 15 minute walk back. We arrived mid afternoon on our motorbike and were greeted warmly by the reception staff. There is a large car park with a good tarmac surface which...
