“Nice pool!”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

When you've been walking in the heat of August, it's nice to arrive at this little hotel and cool off in the pool. That was our experience. Located in the village of Carennac, beside the river, the hotel provides all you want: a good meal, a comfortable room and good service. It's worth walking round the old town, which has lots of picturesque buildings and views. But best of all, there's the piscine!

Since the change of ownership this hotel's restaurant is no longer excellent. We ate here on Mother's day, french one, a year or two ago, both dining rooms were packed out, with a super menu well cooked and served. Today, Mother's day again, only the smaller dining room was open, there was no atmosphere and only elderly people, no children out with their mother, young or old. No special menu was offered, the service was not friendly, when the food arrived it was overcooked and the time between courses was too long, even for a french restaurant. With the number of covers being served, this should have been an opportunity to excel.
So no longer good value, better value can be found in one of the many other restaurants in the village.
Such a pity that this once excellent hotel has lost its way, and apparently most of its clientele.

We had a one night stay in this lovely hotel. We were on a walking holiday in the unseasonable cold & rain. The owner made us most welcome & wasn't worried about our dirty state on arrival.
O well heated room overlooking the Dordogne was perfect -a bath, a separate toilet + entrance lobby. We had an excellent meal in the restaurant. Everything was perfect..

I stayed two night at The Hostellerie Fenelon while hiking through the Dordogne region. It was a lovely stay. The hotel is bright, clean, charming and welcoming. One feels that they are really in France, and not at some big fancy hotel which could be 'anywhere'. The dining room is large and light although I prefered to eat al fresco on the patio. It backs on to the Dordogne river, and is convenient for local exploring. There are several local restaurants and bars nearby. I would stay there again.

We have stayed at the Fenelon many times when passing through the Quercy. Carennac is a small charming village full of Quercy style houses. The hotel backs onto a tributary of the Dordogne. The rooms are not huge and furnished in basic French country style, but they are spotlessly clean and the bathrooms are modern and clean. It is very quiet. I usually ask for the family room with a double and a single bed. It is worth the extra for the extra space (it is two rooms made into one). There is an indoor diningroom, but in summer, tables are set in the courtyard in front of the hotel, which is lovely. At the side of the hotel, is a swimming pool surrounded by tables and loungers. There is a free private car park to the side and back of the hotel.

To our disappointment, the food in the restaurant this year was not as good as we remembered and we wondered if the chef had changed. Breakfast is a serve yourself buffet in a room overlooking the pool (or you can do what we did, and take breakfast out to one of the tables around the pool).

Carennac makes a peaceful centre from which to explore this lovely region.

Hostellerie de Fenelon is a lovely hotel and has a really warm atmosphere.

The hotel was well priced and well situated on a stream which flows to the Dordogne River. The room was very comfortable and extremely clean with a full ensuite.

The service was very good.

There was a wonderful restaurant downstairs which served regional cuisine which was some of the best we had in France.

Carennac itself was extremely pleasant.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit the area around Carennac.
