75 reviews of Hotel de France et de Russie in Thiviers
Dear NickyI just wanted to thank you for your wonderful hospitality while we were in Thiviers. It was great fun meeting you and staying at your hotel. By the way, all your recommendations for restaurants were spot on. We enjoyed every meal and especially the croissants at breakfast. I missed them when I came home and have already started my diet!Hope to see you in the not too distant future.Kindest regardsDeborah (Middleton)
Unfortunately we had only one night at this charming old stone hotel. A small but perfectly adequate bedroom with a really comfortable French bed (still can’t get used to the French bolsters though!) which was very welcome after 14 hours on the road. The hotel has a lovely front garden with a few tables for sitting out and inside, a comfortable lounge with small bar. We didn’t have the breakfast (E8) but the breakfast room looked good. The lounge/bar offered a variety of guidebooks on the local area and an armchair in front of the large open fire would be a perfect place to linger on a cold winters evening.
Be warned. Reception officially closes at 8pm. We were running late and rang ahead to let them know. The delightful lady on duty (also on duty at 7.30am the next morning) was kind enough to wait for us.
Delightful hotel with all the best features of English and French hospitality. A kettle for making early morning tea is even available on request, which is not something French hotels usually provide. All staff were helpful and friendly and continental breakfast was good. It’s a shame there are no evening meals as there is not much else open in Thiviers in the evening
We were warmly welcomed by the English owner of the hotel who recommended a very good restaurant. The room was great with a big bathroom and the hotel is very convenient for the railway station. Thiviers is a busy town but with many historical buildings and Sartre spent part of his childhood here. Excellent walking country surrounds the town
The perfect place to stay.”
We recently spent 5 nights at the hotel whilst looking for property in the region. Nicola and her staff made us very welcome and were very helpful in our search. The Hotel is tastefully furnished throughout, the bedroom and particularly was very comfortable. To be recommended if ever you are in the area.
Four of us spent the night in thiviers, whilst attending a plant fair in St jean de Cole we had a great welcome from Nicola and enjoyed both the hotel and the surroundings . One of us, a normally grouchy traveller , even found the beds comfortable. Great place to stay.
This charming old hotel is located in a quiet part of the town and has off road parking. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated and well appointed. There are also two comfortable sitting rooms provided with books and games for guests to use. The atmosphere throughout is reminiscent of an English country house.
The English manager and her French staff are friendly and efficient.
We felt as if we were the spoilt house guests of a perfect host.
Great location and very helpful people run this hotel. Clean and welcoming.( Also well adapted to suit people with mobility needs if necessary.)Good coffee; great french breakfast. I came in by train from close to the Spanish border having set off at 6.am. and so was particularly weary due to the vagaries of the SNCF.( train cancelled and bus instated…
A couple of months ago I departed by car from home in old blighty at 05:00 for a trip to the Dordogne, I arrived some 14 hours later to a warm welcome from Nicola. Some 90 seconds later with bags unceremoniously discarded in the lobby an ice cold beer was offered to the weary traveller and hastily consumed. Hence the…
We loved this charming, fun hotel in the Perigord. The muliti-lingual owner is great value, with a wealth of knowledge about travel near and far, not to mention a fabulous sense of humour. The rooms are charming, beautifully appointed and each with its own character. Breakfast is a delight in the dining room complete with antique furniture. We highly recommendvthis…
A tremendous base for Perigord Vert, nothing too much trouble and very homely without being intrusive. Good value for money, fabulous rooms topped with a relaxing lounge and great garden ideal for morning coffee.
The warm welcome by a charming English lady was unexpected in a small French town. The hotel was very clean with lots of atmosphere in an house with a history. The beautiful garden invited to relax and we stayed an extra day in Thiviers just to rest and enjoy. So if your travel leads you to Thiviers, we can definitely…
