“I could live here happily ever after....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

This wonderfully charming hotel sits atop a large hill that overlooks the Dordogne Valley. It is absolutely an amazing hotel nestled in an absolutely amazing little town. I had a wonderful room on the top floor and it had the best bathroom I had seen for over a month. The floors creaked, the carpets were artistic, the renovations were superbly done, the place was clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was very helpful and kind. It seems like no one knows about Domme, I was there in high season and did not find the town crowded--a good thing because parking is limited. This is well worth the drive. Just spend the day shopping in the little artistic shops, dine in one of the lovely little restaurants, stroll the streets, spend the night...just enjoy it!

We stayed for 1 night on our self-guided cycling tour - we rode up the big hill to get to Domme, and the hotel was a wonderful place to stay and relax for the evening. The view over the valley was amazing - both in the afternoon and evening as well as in the morning as the mist was rising and falling.
The room was big enough and had a good size bath as well as wi-fi and tv.
Our dinner was included in our tour price so I cannot comment on the value but the meal was great - as was the service and we found all staff very helpful with our very little french!
I would definately go back there if in the area again.

Room Tip: Suggest asking for a room with a view over the valley - we were just lucky but it would be worth ask...

From the moment we arrived till we departed 5 days later, the entire hotel staff gave us a warm welcome and were always exceptionally pleasant and willing to accommodate our needs.

Our stay was made more enjoyable by the help from Sophie who spoke both English and French and was just wonderful in assisting us with local tour suggestions, made a hairdresser appointment for us in Sarlat and provided food and wine translations in the restaurant.

The spacious, clean and comfortable room and adjoining ‘modern’ bathroom were immaculate and had ‘stunning’ views from both areas over the Dordogne valley. Combined with free Wi-Fi in our room and free car parking adjoining the hotel, what more would you want?

Both the ground floor meals area and separate elegant French style restaurant overlooked the valley and provided magnificent views at breakfasts and for that romantic occasion in the restaurant at night. Speaking of the restaurant, the menu was of an exceptional high quality, excellent wines, food was delicious and the desserts to die for!

Simply a great hotel within the charm of Domme - Highly recommend. More importantly, we would stay there again, we loved Domme and L'Esplanade.

The owners and staff all treat you as if you are the only patrons at the hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The food is fantastic and the chef is our hero! We got lost arriving the hotel after hours and the owner drove to us in the next town and had us follow him back to the hotel to avoid any more wrong turns. Thank you team for a fabulous time in Domme with your wonderful suggestions of what to see and do.

We had a wonderful stay at L'Esplanade. We knew that the view would be spectacular but we found that the hotel, the food and the staff were just as good as the view. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The food was delightful and we were lucky enough to be able to enjoy dinner on the terrace. We found all the staff to be friendly and welcoming.
We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
