We stayed here for just one night, on our way from the Perigord to the Loire Valley.
Our only difficulty was that the day of arrival, a Saturday, coincided with the arrival in Perigueux of the penultimate leg of the Tour de France, which made our entry into the city from the south almost impossible. After some fruitless attempts to get around the police cordon, we called the hotel proprietor and, with his help, and some ingenious programming of our GPS, we finally arrived, rather late and somewhat exasperated, at the Bristol Hotel.
The owner and his wife could not have been more helpful, and helped us regain our "cool", and to locate a parking place on the street at the back (since their carpark was full), and then pointed us in the direction of somewhere to have supper.
Our room at the hotel, which appeared to have been recently refurbished, was really comfortable - a good bed and a neat bathroom with separate wc. Breakfast was perfectly adequate, with a choice of fresh fruit, cereals, cheese, ham and so on.
We took a little time the following morning to visit, on foot, this historic town (don't miss the pretty little park on the site of the Roman Arena, nor indeed the superb Vesunna museum with its Gallo-Roman villa).
On our return to the hotel to collect our car and depart northwards, the proprietor gave us some tips to get easily out of the city in the right direction. We departed very satisfied with our choice of hotel for this brief visit.
