Of seven hotels in the Dordogne region this was our favorite. It's in a very small village, not much more than a cross-roads really. However, it's a strategic and beautiful location right on the Dordogne River.

Directly in front of the hotel river is a bridge across the Dordogne and a popular location for launching and recovering canoes and kayaks. Beyond the bridge a short distance is the medieval village of Domme with its spectacular 360-degree views. And the bigger, classic French town of Sarlat-le-Caneda is also a short distance away with its huge market days on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Plus it is not far from Vitrac to the many caves and grottoes like Lascaux II for which the region is famous.

The hotel itself is lovely, the rooms were modern and our bed was larger than at other hotels in this class. There was an elevator to get to the upper floors which is another thing you don't always see in 2-3-star hotels. It's a bike-friendly hotel and had a garage across the street to lock up our bikes overnight.

Both the dinner and breakfast buffet were excellent and we were promptly, courteously, and slightly humorously served by Carlos, our Uruguayan waiter.

But aside from the strategic location and good amenities, one of the great surprises about the Plaisance was its swimming pool. At first we were a little put off by being told we had to walk 150 meters up the street and enter a key-code at a gate. But it was well worth it. Inside the gate it's like a garden park that you'd pay to see, beautifully landscaped and even a mini-golf course. The pool, with solariums at each end, was the perfect temperature and we had it all to ourselves. There are also some fitness machines and a Ping-Pong table.

We would definitely stay at the Plaisance again, and in fact it's likely we will.

Stayed for 2 nights with family here. Hotel is in a nice location right next to the river & you can cross the bridge to the canoe's. Plenty of parking & a nice swimming pool just 2 min walk up the road. Hotel was clean & tidy, we had 4 of us in the room but still plenty of space & a big corner bath in the bathroom. It's only 10 mins drive from Sarlat & Domme so a good base.

This was a long overdue return visit to this well-run old-style family hotel restaurant. Welcoming staff and a table under the trees on the terrace -- we had booked. Menu at 28 euros was very good value, three choices of soup -- vermicelli chicken broth, fish and a chilled melon soup, all good. Starters included salmon brochettes, duck terrine with fois gras (maybe a bit rich for some) and fish with creamy lemon sauce. Lamb, veal and grilled prawns for mains. We were full by then, but still managed dessert which included a very good creme brûlée. All in all an enjoyable and relaxed meal with attentive service. And a bonus was an after dinner folkloric performance in the hotel's function room!

This was a great find. Only a few miles south of the tumult of Sarlat this hotel still has the best of old-style France. Excellent restaurant and great value for such good and varied cooking. Good wine list. Altogether a joy.

We stopped in this hotel for two nights with our friends. The rooms were clean and fairly spacious with reasonably comfortable beds, We had our evening meal elsewhere, soI cannot comment on the restaurant, but the breakfast was pretty good. The staff are very friendly and there is good secure car parking in the hotel grounds.
Views of te river and very well situated for visiting the sites in the Dordogne.
