We were fortunate to secure a booking at Les Cordeliers for 7 days this July. Due to the understandably heavy bookings for this superb B&B, we ended up staying in Room No. 3 for 2 nights and Room No. 4 for 5 nights. Both rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished, elegantly decorated and featured modern ensuite bathrooms with standing showers (including Villeroy and Boch fittings). Room No. 4 was bigger and had exposed beams which lent an added sense of warmth to the space but really both rooms were spacious and elegant. The pictures on the website do provide a fair impression of what the rooms are like. It was also very convenient to have good WiFi coverage in both rooms (even in Room No. 4 on the second floor), without having to trudge down to the ground floor as is the case with some other hotels and B&Bs.
There are so many things which set Les Cordeliers apart, from the delicious breakfasts to the carpark that Chris somehow manages to find in front of the hotel for most arriving guests as well as the complimentary pantry and laundry service that are uniquely offered as mentioned by previous reviewers. One morning, we were leaving very early to queue for the limited daily tickets at Grotte de Font De Gaume (in July, if you do not have reservations, it is safest to try and get there by 7.30AM ahead of the 9.30AM opening time). Not only was an early breakfast prepared but Chris also armed us with a flask of hot tea knowing that we had a long wait ahead of us in chilly morning weather before the ticket counters opened. At the end of the day, the main highlights of Les Cordeliers stem from the genuinely kind and gentle disposition of the owners who take it upon themselves to ensure that their guests are very well looked after once they have stepped through the doors of their charming home in Sarlat. Thank you Chris, Amanda (and bubbly Sandy) for making us feel so welcome in Les Cordeliers and for all the little touches that go such a long way.
