We have been to this restaurant a number of times over the last year, most recently in August. The staff are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The food really is excellent, full of flavour and beautifully presented. The menu offers a pleasant change from the standard Dordogne fayre.

This quaint hotel was just perfect for our short visit. We arrived during a heat wave, so the room's air conditioning was very appreciated! The hotel is in very close proximity to Font de Gaume and the newly renovated museum of Prehistory is just across the street. There is parking at the back for guests if you drive, which is through a narrow but manageable road. There is also a beautiful river with places to sit down and enjoy the view just behind the hotel.

There is no elevator, but the hotel staff will help you with your luggage.

The hotel is an easy 10-minute walk from the Les Eyzies train station: you just follow the road that leads away from the station, and you will get to the hotel. It's a little hidden from the road: a lot of ivy is hiding its face, and you have to walk across a little downhill parking lot to get to the entrance, which is accessed by walking through the restaurant patio. Once you get there, the staff make you feel very welcome, the rooms are more spacious than you would expect (I peeked into a couple while they were vacant and being cleaned) and the bed is pretty comfy. The bathroom is clean, and the A/C works well.

If you're in town to visit Font de Gaume, and you plan to go very early in the morning to buy tickets, you will have to unlock the front door of the hotel with one of the two keys they give you, let yourself out, and then lock the front door of the hotel behind you. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the entrance to the caves.

The restaurant that is attached to the hotel is quite good, but on the pricey side. There are lots of other restaurants, bistros, and specialty food shops within a 2-minute walk of the hotel. There's also a wine cave and a small permanent market 3 minutes away (always on foot) where you can pick up some really unique and surprisingly cheap bottles of local wine and other products (foie gras is everywhere here). Try some vin de noix as an aperitif while you're here. Yes, it's nut wine. It's really sweet but not cloyingly so. You will only get a small amount in a dainty little glass. It's delicious, and it's difficult to find once you leave this part of France. I regret not having bought a bottle to take home with me. A farmer's market also appears (don't know how frequently, but I was there on a Sunday and walked through it) between the bridge and the hotel. Take a walk by the river (when you exit the hotel front door, go left instead of right) in the direction of the train station and, if the market is there, you can't miss it.

This hotel was a little expensive, but it has a great location, the staff is wonderful, and the rooms are quaint and clean. I could've saved money by staying in a chambre d'hotes, but am glad I chose this one. Would stay again.

We were on the top floor in a standard double. Peeling paint. Worn carpet. Terrible, dated decor. Old furniture.
Bathroom very dated and in need of renovation.
Bed was okay.
Perhaps there are better rooms in this hotel but the rooms we had were terrible.

We booked this hotel from the Logis de France website. It was in the area we wished to visit in the Dordogne, and had vacancies when we wished to go!
The hotel is not easy to find, even though it is right in the centre of town. It lurks off the main road behind a public car park. Oh there is a car park? Well, yes, but you have to pay for that one. Otherwise you need to explore a narrow lane running alongside the river. This gives access to the rear of the hotel and, if you are lucky, you may be able to park there...
The hotel itself has rooms on the 1st to 3rd floors. But no lift...though a waiter did offer to carry our cases up to the top floor. The hotel looked a little tired, while our small room was reputedly decorated in a traditional way. We were situated in the roof and it was hot. It was very hot! There was an overhead fan, but this was no match for the 30-31C temperatures in the day.
There was a restaurant in the hotel, but we ate at the restaurant next door, that was less pricey. Breakfast was the usual Continental breakfast.
The town, and the area around was full of prehistoric caves, some of which now sported facades, giving the appearance of normal houses, but behind this is basically a hole in the cliff adapted for modern living. I bet their caves weren't nearly as hot as our bedroom!
A visit to the medieval town of Sarlat is a must if you are in this area, as too is La Roque Gageac, where you can take a boat trip or rent canoes. This is a beautiful part of France, with wooded valleys and rivers, but it's charm has made it somewhat busier than other parts of France.

Friendly and helpful staff.
Good location next to the river and museum.
Room was quite small and in need of redecoration / modernisation.
I fear the bed had either fleas or mites as I awoke very badly bitten in the morning.

Kath and I booked a 'Junior Suite' for our five-night stay in the Dordogne, using Les Eyzies as the base for our motorcycle tour of the region. Hostellerie du Passeur is ideally situated in the centre of the village and is our idea of a classy, small family-run French hotel. Jerome and his team were very welcoming and directed us to park the bike in a pedestrianised area, right in front of the hotel. The room was huge and furnished in a 'retro' fashion, probably not what you might expect in this type of hotel, but we liked it very much. We were particularly thankful for the air conditioning as the temperature climbed to 39 Centigrade during our stay. The double glazing cut out any noise at night and we slept well throughout our stay.
Les Eyzies is an ideal centre to tour the region from and there are plenty of restaurants to suit all budgets. We ate in the hotel one night and were very impressed with the food and the service.
Difficult to fault anything but if I was to be picky I'd say that the breakfast choice was a bit limited. The hotel is also not the cheapest, but then this IS the heart of the Dordogne.

We've just stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed everything about the place. The hotel was easy to find and we were able to park right outside. It is very pretty being covered in ivy and sitting right beside the river. Dining outside in the evening was a real treat.

The rooms must have just been remodelled and ours was very clean and comfortable, although we did find the bed to be a little on the hard side. The bathroom was stunning and was very clean, bright, and modern. All the staff were very, and it was great that they didn't speak too much English as we had a great time practising our French with them.

The restaurant and service was excellent although it was a little on the expensive side. Having said that we ate there three of our four nights and felt that we'd had good value for money every time. The choice of dishes was wide and the presentation and quality of the food was superb and imaginative.

The town is fairly quiet in the evenings and there are a few other places to eat as well that all looked very nice. We will definitely be planning to return for a weekend stay at some point soon.

This is a great hotel in the center of town. It has free parking, which is a real plus even in October. The prices are great as well. This is probably because there is no lift. If that's a problem, then this is not your place. We have stayed here before and things have changed a bit. Breakfast is no longer included, available for 16 euros, and---paper cups in the bathroom. Plastic is bad enough, but cardboard is several steps below that. Come on guys--three star hotels don't use cardboard.
