Popped in (without booking) to enjoy a very reasonable supper at La Tour du Vieux Port located on the river with seating inside or on the back terrace. The dinner menu is 18 euros for three courses. We had the seasonal salad with tuna and the foie gras maison to start with, followed by the Pork tenderloin and fish as the main course. For dessert we chose the Tarte Tatin - delicious - coming with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and cream. Very tasty, good sized portions and excellent value. Parking is tricky worth trying along the riverside - we were lucky as a car was leaving - otherwise parking in town with a walk.

My wife and I stayed at La Tour du Vieux Port for 4 nights while we spent some time in the area during the run up to the Ryder Cup in Paris. We took the TGV from CDG in Paris and arrived at the train station in Libourne at about 20:15, just as scheduled. The only hick up was getting a taxi from the station to the hotel: all the numbers I called on the taxi list sign outside the station went directly to voice mail (I had bought a French SIM card for my old phone at CDG). Not knowing for sure how far it was from the station to the hotel - and having 3 suitcases and 2 carry ons to tote - I succumbed to calling the hotel to see how to get a taxi to pick us up. The response from Josie, the hotel manager, was marvelous: he would come and get us in ten minutes. (He English was decent and with my broken French we were able to communicate just fine.) He described what he was wearing and the car he would be driving so there would be no question. He arrived on time, we loaded the baggage, piled into his car and 5 mins later we were hauling our bags into the hotel. Thank you again, Josie! The hotel is riverside to the tributary that flows into the Dordogne and is conveniently located near several restaurants. Actually, Libourne is small enough one can walk nearly everywhere downtown. We walked to the Sunday central market, purchased several items and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of the market and area in general. Again, some spoken French, no matter how broken, is useful in the smaller towns in France. Check in was uneventful, swift and pleasant given that we had literally traveled all day from Chicago to Paris to Libourne, using trains, a plane and an automobile (sorry, couldn't help the reference to the John Candy movie). Our room was street facing on the top floor, up a spiral staircase 2 flights. The hotel is NOT handicap friendly: there is no elevator and all rooms are on upper floors - but this is not unexpected given the construction of the hotel many years ago. The room was spacious enough with a separate in room bath and closet area. The door is locked with an actual key and secured with a deadbolt on the inside. Outlets were conveniently placed (you need a 230v/120v power adapter in France). The only potential drawback was the bed which I found to be just a little too firm for me - but that's the risk one takes in staying at any hotel (and that's the only reason for the 4 instead of 5 star rating). Servicing of the room was done daily and competently. Entry to the hotel after hours is a bit different but Josie explains this so it is not a problem. The hotel has a restaurant on the main floor which is ran by Josie and his wife (who speaks virtually no english - this was where my recently brushed up 45 year old high school french became useful). Breakfast was part of the room charge ($579 / 491 Euro for 4 nights/5 days) as was parking at a covered garage a block away when we rented a car at the station a couple of days after arrival. Breakfast was what one would expect to be traditional French: coffee, pastries, bread, and well as cereal, yogurt, fruit, hot chocolate and tea. Dinner at the restaurant was traditional French but be careful: the menu is without english translation and this was one of the few points my French failed me: explaining the menu to my wife, I didn't know for sure how the veal dish was prepared but she opted for it as the fish and other items (which I found appealing) weren't her cup of tea. Unfortunately, what I thought was the method of preparation was actually a description of veal dish: it was veal kidney, not veal. Although she didn't care for the dish - and Josie was concerned when he picked up the dishes prior to dessert - she ate a portion of it. It provided, in hindsight, a good story for us to tell later. Dessert was also traditional French: creme brulee, a killer chocolate mousse and a tasting of all the desserts called Cafe Gourmand. My wife liked this latter one the best. Check out was without issue: the bill was as expected and we departed for Paris via the train station, dropping off the rental Renault (stick shift for all you folks who grew up on auto transmissions) in the process. Again, hats off to Josie and the staff at the hotel for an excellent stay. We would definitely stay again.

We were not expecting much at this 2* hotel, but after a fairly average first meal, the standard seemed to go up a notch, and our next two meals were very pleasant, tasty and quite varied, with good tasty wine. Nothing to really enthuse about but good value for money, with friendly and efficient staff.

We were in the tower behind the main building, which has a gate, no elevators. Basic rooms, ok beds. Tiny shower, but plenty of water. Overall clean but basic. No shampoo, tiny towels. Breakfast was usual continental offering.
