“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

We stopped over for one night in this very nice hotel. A warm friendly greeting at reception.
Our room was clean, very comfortable just perfect for our short stay. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent with a good choice of meals served by friendly efficient staff. Buffet breakfast was served in the restaurant and was more than adequate. All in all a very pleasant stay. Would not hesitate to return and would highly recommend to others

Wonderful meal, beautiful grounds, swimming pool, lots of relaxing places, warm welcome, rooms clean, not huge, what's not to like? Staff very friendly, they do speak some English. Breakfast was good €9, good choice, home- made jams etc, I've paid more at other hotels for breakfast, a lot more.

This is a lovely hotel in a lovely little town in a lovely part of France. We were untroubled by any noise in our clean, comfortable room and slept very soundly.

It was off season and the hotel wasn't very busy but the restaurant was packed each evening and it was easy to understand why. It was wonderful; good food, fine not-too-formal-service, pleasant surroundings, reasonable prices - what more could anyone want?

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

Stayed 4 days at this hotel, and found that, while extremely conveniently located right in the middle of Argentat, it's a pretty basic place to stay. The rooms are simple, with paper-thin walls and a door which admits every noise going on in the corridors. I could hear virtually everything above, below and next to me, particularly if anyone was stomping around. Like a backpackers, basically. This said, however, The room was clean and neat, and it had a separate toilet and a small bathroom. The bright orange furnishings were a bit disconcerting first thing in the morning, but everything worked, and a hair dryer is provided. Very strange bolster-like pillow, but there are other pillows in the closet that you can pad it out with. No A.C. No tea/coffee facilities, but of course you can drink the water from the tap (faucet), and het coffees, teas and alcoholic drinks downstairs at the bar. There is a lift to help you with luggage, and also a nice swimming pool out the back. There is a lot of free parking at the front and the back of the hotel, but it fills up fast.
The landlady was extremely nice, but with very limited English.
Now the best things; the hotel is right in the middle of Argentat, so everything is easily walkable. Lots of cafés and restaurants, little shops and things, and of course the Quais area which is delightful. Next, the restaurant. Excellent! Really beautiful food, and the breakfast is also great in the morning. I would definitely recommend dining at the restaurant during your stay.
So, while its noisy to sleep there, it's a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: The rooms are a real warren of stairs and dark corridors. Definitely get one with a bathroom if you...

This was a great find as we came across it by accident when we were trying to get somewhere to stay in the Dordigne region.
Restaurant was superb and the staff very attentive and helpful. Looked a bit drab from the outside but we needed a bed so decided to go for it, once inside everything changes. The staff are very very helpful and between my minimal French and their efforts we managed to have a great stay. the waitress even brought us a translation booklet in the restaurant. Marvellous place and great value for money especially the restaurantand the food they served.

We visited Argentat for four nights and ate in various restaurants over the week. Le Sablier du Temps was definitely our favourite. The food was lovely, it looked stunning and the restaurant was pretty. The service was great and we had very attentive staff and left feeling very full! There is a lovely terrace if the weather is good (unfortunately for us, it wasn't!). Great value and affordable wine list.

The hotel was booked for 4 bikers and we were made very welcome. Rooms and breakfast were of a high standard, and the restaurant was excellent.
We did use the swimming pool, as it was wetter outside the pool than in.
The Lady in charge helped us cancel our other hotels as we decided to return home because of the continuous rain.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it was ideal
