« Contemplate the beautiful Dordogne river while tasting truffles, early-produce vegetables and mushrooms »

Description of the establishment

Superb views of the Dordogne Valley and the flowing river from the terrace of the "Esplanade", in the medieval city of Domme 450,000 years of history move everybody from their planned tracks. Fifteen smart, comfortable rooms, all tastefully decorated. Pascal Bouland serves up traditional regional cuisine, where each dish pays tribute to the land where the first men lived. There is something vital in the air here. Henry Miller, who fell in love with this part of the world, described it thus: "France may one day no longer exist, but Dordogne will live on, just like the dreams that fuel the human soul".

You feel part of the heart and soul of Domme in this hotel. The rooms are quite small and ultra-modernists may be disappointed with the traditional decor, but the fabulous views over the Dordogne Valley more than compensate. Eating on the terrace, at sunset, on a warm evening - perfection! The staff are charming and attentive. Car parking can be tricky on arrival day, but when you understand the one-way system through Domme, and the convenient places to park - it's easy.

The picture on the website overlooking the Dordogne River did not do sufficient justice to the beauty of the place. In addition, many of the comments indicated difficulty with parking, but there was ample free street parking in the area. The only caviat I would add is that we found it difficult to zero in on the location.

I liked the location of the hotel and agree it is a lovely place to stay in. If I had any criticism, it would be that I sometimes felt like I was an 'inconvenience' they did not have the best customer facing skills, unless it was people they knew well and I noticed a difference in attitude.

L'Esplanade is a lovely modern hotel in a park-like setting filled with oak and ash trees. Out the back gate, you are steps from a viewpoint of Rocamadour, and the pathway leading to the village. Everything about the hotel was comfortable, open and welcoming. Our only issue was that the wifi signal was not quite adequate in our lovely room at the far corner of the building. This was solved by sitting in the lounge for awhile to connect. Breakfast was just delicious, and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. The owner lives on site, and really takes good care of her guests. I highly recommend this beautiful hotel for your stay near Rocamadour. You'll have a true escape from the tourist bustle at the pilgrimage site. It's a truly refreshing place.

Stunning historical location

This hotel is located in superbly in one of the prettiest bastide towns in France with simply amazing views of the Dordogne river and surrounding countryside. The comfort was all that could be expected of a 3 star hotel, again in an outstanding location. Our only comment is that none of the staff seemed HAPPY in their job, as if they were under duress. Such a pity because they all put in superb effort. Could it be to do with the management?

Highly recommended if you're staying in the Dordogne region. The location is incredible - amazing views of the Dordogne River and valley. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, and the rooms are in excellent condition. The breakfast is great for the price. The quality of the restaurant for dinner is excellent, but can get on the pricey side. Regardless, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who would love the charm and beauty of medieval France.

We loved our stay with you at L'Esplanade in Domme, that is why we extended our visit by 2 days to a total of 5. The welcome and staff were terrific. Mme Sophie was a gracious an knowledgeable host. The food was delicious. Lovely wines, great coffee and superb views from the garden terrace. We had a room facing the village. Everyday we were delighted to watch the antics of a local cat navigating the roof opposite to find a sunny spot in the morning. The room was quiet and most pleasant. This hotel is ideally placed to explore the area and a wonderful place to come home to. We thoroughly recommend this hotel.
