So, you drive for five hours from Paris to Le Mont-Dore in the Dordogne through some fairly wet and dismal weather and arrive at your hotel that from the outside does look a little 'tired'. But, you step through the door to find you are their cherished guests and nothing, absolutely nothing is too much trouble. The Spa facilities (indoor...

Although the hotel is looking good, a few elements leads to downgrading this hotel from 4 to 3 stars! Small rooms, no air conditioning, very few electrical plugs already used for TV, fridge and boiler!!! Positive points: welcoming is good, breakfast is good although service is poor, swimming pool is nice for swimming.

Small bed, old furniture from 80ties, dirty terras, and where renovations were done with cheap material. Stay away from this hotel. Breakfast costs 15€ but values only 5. This hotel has all possibilities (view on the waterfall and Puy de Sancy) but needs a complete rénovation. Fred parking & free WiFi.

Ridiculously overpriced, I suspect this was because we booked last minute. Ugly building in 70's style. Clean and staff ok. Breakfast was a joke the first morning- very poor for 15€. Supermarket baguette, chewy croissants, couple pieces sweaty cheese and meat. It was slightly better next day and we were offered cooked choices too. Spa and swimming pool were lovely...

This 1960/70 property is well located just 200m from the heart of the village. Its interior style reminds one of The Avengers, or Man from Uncle. But its well maintained and the staff very professional. We had room on 7th floor looking towards Sancy. Only noise were birds and the Dordogne river running through the village. Room could do with...

On the positive side 1) the hotel is centrally located 2) parking is free 3) the rooms were reasonably clean 4) there was a fridge in the room 5) the wifi worked 6) the staff were always friendly. On the negative side it was quite pricey for a basic hotel. And the leisure facilities were disappointing.

We had booked into the Gran Carlina for 2 nights to break up our drive back to the UK. I was particularly looking forward to revisiting Le Mont-Dore where I had learnt to ski on a school trip some 40 years ago and as this hotel promised a decent restaurant it seemed a good choice when booking. We were slightly...

I was a little worried after booking this hotel & seeing the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel & it's facilities. Ok, maybe not a typical 4 star but what it lacks in luxury it makes up for in helpful friendly staff & a great location. Our room was warm, clean & comfortable, the swimming pool &...

In need of maintenance, no shower door, overpriced, they keep the lights switched off leaving one with the impression you are residing in a cave?
