Hotel Montaigne
Ranked #27 of 35 Hotels in Sarlat-la-Caneda
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Had "comfort double" for 4 nights. Pleasantly surprised by size of room and bathroom. Quality much better than I expected from a 2-star hotel located in a tourist town. Modest flat-screen TV, combination tub/shower, roomy closet. Deadlock on door. Furnishings nothing special, but room was clean and tidy. Pleasant, helpful and courteous couple at front desk. Free wifi, but signal weak in room (at one corner of the hotel). Would stay here again in future.

Nice hotel. Good value for money and on a very central location. Allas there is only a (payed) public parking space available.

Once again I had difficulty with driving so I parked and walked. I found the hotel quite easily on foot and the owners were wonderful and very helpful. I drove the car down and parked out the front in a pay park which is cheap. I stayed here two nights.

The hotel had a damp smell when I entered, although that disappeared so it may have been a water issue. There was another problem with water but it was fixed overnight. There is a fair sized lift as well as stairs and the room is a good size - a double for me - very clean and comfortable with a good sized bathroom with toiletries and warming towel rack!!

The TV has 2 English stations; the area is quiet as is the room. No view - just the side road but I have a cheaper room. Although I can see the square out front and it is pleasant hanging out the window looking at the street. Even though it is March the weather is warm and sunny.

The hosts also helped me to find my way around to the caves and gave me information about where to find things in the town. I also did an audio walking tour of Sarlat - very interesting!!

The old town is about 3 mins walk past a post office. A good hotel in a good location.

We were only going to be in Sarlat for one night and chose this hotel for its location, which was excellent - easily accessible by car, yet easy walking distance from the old town. Our room was quiet, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was perfectly adequate for our needs.

We booked a double and a family room for a three night stay at Sarlat. The location of the hotel was excellent. It faces a public parking that is free at night, but not during the day. Since we spent most of our days visiting the area, that wasn't much of a problem. When were there during the day we found street parking on the little one-way street that runs behind the parking lot and along side the hotel. It is just a couple of minutes to walk through the wall to the old town. There are several excellent bakeries and a small grocery within a few minutes walk. It is an ideal location to stroll into Sarlat for dinner and to enjoy the old city beautifully lit with gas lights at night.

The hotel rooms were very clean. They were basic, but pleasant. The beds were comfortable. While the couple at the desk were very pleasant, when we mentioned several times that there wasn't enough hot water for more than a tepid bath, they said all the water came from a central heater and volunteered to show us that the water in the kitchen was hot. That didn't make our baths or showers any warmer. Except for that, we loved the hotel as a base for visiting the town. Because of that, however, I hesitated between the four stars I have given and three.

We found this hotel just about as good as we wanted had we set down the conditions. Location is great. Only a block from the Old Town of Sarlat, right near a busstop, managers who treated us as family, a clean, quiet and comfortable room, no pressure to take breakfast in their dining room and useful help with planning acrtivities in the area, like kayaking on the Dordogne.
We kept extending our stay and even though the hotel was busy and what appeared to be full, we were able to keep the same room all the time we stayed there.
We would go back and stay in the same hotel for sure.

We loved this hotel and didn't want to leave. We wish we could have stayed longer than the 2 nights we had there. The owners, Jean and Armelle, are sweethearts, so helpful and nice. We paid less for this room than any of the other 5 hotels on our trip, and we liked it the best.

We arrived at night (we were driving from Paris) and on the way I realized that their office wouldn't be open by the time we would get there. In a panic, we called them from a pay phone to let them know we'd be late. Jean told us not to worry, he would just give us the code to get into the building, and where to find our room key on their desk. Already I was impressed!!

Our room and bathroom were very good size for a hotel in Europe, and the breakfast buffet was very good. Excellent service from all the staff, we really felt at home there.

By arriving tired and later at night, we didn't know about the parking situation and unfortunately got a ticket. Jean was so apologetic, and we could see we weren't the only ones to get a ticket -- far from it. But it wasn't his fault, we didn't even see him until too late the next morning to have made a difference, and it was our fault we didn't see the signs. He helped us a lot by giving us the information we needed to pay the ticket (at a smoke shop!) We appreciated his help, as it was all a bit strange to us.

We visited the Lascaux caves (wonderful!!) and the Castelnaud Chateau. We love the Dordogne Valley, Sarlat, and the Hotel Montaigne! We hope to get back some day and spend more time there.
