We did not stay at the hotel so cannot coment on the accommodation. Whilst staying in the small hamlet of Braguel just outside the quiet village of Le Coux-et-Bigaroque we ate at Le Chambellan no less than four times in two weeks. That must be a recommendation in itself.
The restaurant is part of the Hotel Restaurant Le Chambellan in the Dordogne-Perigord region of France. Le Coux-et-Bigaroque is roughly half way between Bergerac and Sarlat. A delightful young couple Virginie and Philippe Vue run the hotel/restaurant with great efficiency and charm. The restaurant does not open at lunch times but is open for dinner on six evenings with the exception of Wednesday each week between April and November. As Virginie and Phillipe seem to work entirely in the restaurant there must also be a very good chef in the kitchen.
The menu is typical of the region with excellent duck products featuring high on each menu. However, for those not addicted to duck, other meat, fish, poultry and even a vegetarian option are included. Each time I started with foie gras in one form or another. The pan fried version is the best I have ever had, even better than that cooked in the kitchen of Paul Bocuse.
In a nutshell,excellent French country cooking in a charming village restaurant. Should you be in the area and in need of sustenance, do try Le Chambellan. I’m sure you will not be disappointed but do book, it is very popular with locals and holiday makers alike.
If you need it, Philippe speaks very good English and Virginie’s is coming on well.

This is a real find - a lovely quiet spot off the beaten track (yet easy to find) and excellent value for money. The restaurant is excellent and has a good range of price options. Rooms are quaint - originally 70's have been cleverly converted with nice artistic touches. Spotlessly clean, nice bar helpful staff and 10 minutes walk from the Dordogone where you can swim in the river.
A really good place for a first night's stop if touring from Bergerac or as a centre to explore from.

Had a lovely meal in the restaurant on Tuesday evening. The food was deliciously fresh, appetising and well presented. Phillip, the host was attentive and friendly. We will definitely be visiting this restaurant again when we are back in Le Coux.

We stayed at Le Chambellan in August 2011 because another hotel had 'forgotten' our booking and when we arrived after an 8 hr drive we were told that they had no room for us, this around 8 pm in August! They found us a room at Le Chambellan. We arrived after 9pm and the room was actually for two while we were three...

However, they were adorable and as there was no space anywhere, they bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and brought in an extra mattress, sheets, pillows, blanket. We felt to grateful and delighted.

As many reviewers mentioned, the room was basic, but clean. All we needed was there. We were so tired that we went to bed at once and only the next morning we were able to see how lovely a location this is.

It is off the main street and therefore quiet. It is part of a tiny village, a church and a number of houses. We had a lovely (continental) breakfast and were ready to proceed to Souillac.

The area is full of lovely places and this hotel is a perfect point of departure to explore the area. We did not have dinner here, but from reviews it seems to be nice and we would have no hesitation to stay here again, to explore the many sites, return towards evening and then relax with a nice dinner. We paid 57 EUR for the room (in 2011)

We are grateful that they tried their utmost best to give us accommodation when we most needed and a great night's sleep we had.

Stopped here for two nights whilst in town for a wedding at the nearby chateau & I was really impressed.

It's only 2 star accomodation, so don't expect room service & a concierge, however they do all the basics really well - and then some.

It's a charming little place, set around a pretty courtyard with lush plants and flowers. The rooms are comfortable, decent bed and bathroom, nice and clean. The town is lovely and the hotel is well positioned for seeing it, there's a nice little shop just up the road to grab your bagettes in the morning.

Breakfast was continental style, but done very nicely - freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh pastries, yogurt, bread, jam etc. Very tasty. I didn't try the restaurant but it did look really good.

Best part was the service from the owners - husband & wife team who were really very helpful. Public transport in the region isn't the best but they did a great job helping me with a taxi booking and researching train tickets - really very appreciated and I'd be delighted to recommend this charming hotel.

We were visiting friends on and they took us to this hotel for one of the best dinners ever. We all had the 3 course set menu (duck) and all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The creme brulee (4 different flavours) was to die for!

Visited with a party of 7. We sat down in the calm courtyard garden. Complimentary nibbles arrived immediately after a very friendly welcome. Good English spoken at the restaurant. Six menus variations to choose from (3 more duck-oriented, regional menus, 3 more 'general French' menus). Moderate pricing (the mid range 3 course menu was 24 Euros, and the four course menu 28 Euros). My gesier salad was very nice. Main dishes were predictably confit de canard (with an excellent pommes sarladais and cepes) and duck breast. The deserts were extraordinary (red fruit in a monbazillac jelly for me, selection of differently flavoured creme brulee for my wife). Very flexible menu, flexible staff. Great quality. Only drawback - it took 3 hours for three courses....just too long........

Family run bed and breakfast that was what you would expect in a very small village Staff was helpfull with directions and sightseeing info. Room was basic but comfortable, in an old building that could use some upgrading. Our room was on the first floor with no elevator. There is a restaurant and bar. We did not have the breakfast, but the evening meal was better than average.

Attending a wedding nearby, the bride booked this hotel for us. We stayed a total of four nights and as a two star hotel, I thought it would be the most basic of hotels. I expected limited decor and a shared bathroom. How wrong was I? Very

This is a beautiful hotel, reasonably priced in a beautiful location. It is like a series of connecting houses with a lovely courtyard in the middle. The people running the hotel are very welcoming but not invasive.

The route to the room was unusual. We were led through what had been decorated as an old fashioned child's bedroom. The room was lovely. Basic but well thought out. The door opening up onto a small veranda overlooking the courtyard. And a separate bathroom! I was stunned by what we got for what we paid - it was great!

Breakfast was extra - basic French fare but very nice.

The village is lovely but the real gem is that ten minutes walk from the hotel is a lovely lake area. Canoes, swimmers, walkers, readers and sunbathers all made use of this beautiful site.

Any downpoints? For us, there were three. Firstly, the hotel is located across the road from a church and the bells do ring a couple of times a day. You get used to it! Secondly, we stayed during August and this hotel was scorching with no air conditioning or fans. It was unbearable at times. And thirdly, heat attracts bugs and there seemed to be nothing in place to control these unwelcome visitors. There were lots of wasps around the place, particularly at breakfast.

Would we stay again? Absolutely but not when it was so hot. This hotel is a 3 star at the very least.,
