The hotel has possibly got the best view in town, right on the riverside, overlooking the ancient turreted bridge. And thankfully the hotel’s architecture, though being of modern concrete flowing lines is softened by the gardens & underground parking, leaving all the guest rooms a grand view of ye olde bridge. The hotel’s rooms & facilities are very good, though there is no in-house restaurant, the breakfast buffet is very good & the reception personnel are knowledgeable but unbiased about local restaurants. Decent pricing, too. Very helpful

New, clean, and friendly hotel. The hotel is located on the river, close enough to walk the Devil bridge. The view is amazing. We visit Cahors as often as we can and this was our first time staying here. Easy walk to the tourist office and city center.

A very modern hotel, newish i suspect. All the bedrooms face the Lot and the beautiful old bridge. Bedroom spotless, large airy, modern. Everything worked, there was even an English socket. Warm and helpful greeting from the reception staff and all the other staff. Lovely bar area where food was available, there were tables for two in the garden, which were on a grassy bank overlooking the river.
We were there when COVID measures were in place, so breakfast involved wearing gloves and a mask. That being said breakfast was absolutely fantastic, fresh, and with depth of ingredients. We were only there for one night, such a pity ! We plan to go back .
Good hotel... bad restaurant!

We had requested in advance to be given a room with a nice view (for photographic purposes) of the river and the Mediæval Valentré Bridge which is one of the major attractions in the town of Cahors. “We are happy to let you know we have been able to accommodate your request”, came the reply, and we were quite satisfied about that.
However, what they DON’T tell you (but you realize soon enough upon arrival) is that ALL rooms offer a view of the river and the bridge, so there really was no reason to overplay the “favor”... especially since some rooms do offer a better view (those on the second, or top floor, and preferably beginning with small numbers), but they actually gave us one of the worse ones (on the first floor, almost at the far end of the hotel from the Mediæval bridge)!
Anyway, don’t bank on any of those rooms to take great photos of that bridge, because another thing they don’t tell you is that the view is substantially blocked by the foliage of the trees lining the bank of the river...!
The room size is OK, with nice little balconies with folding table and chairs, but bathrooms are too small and there is markedly not enough space to lay out toiletries. Bedding is good, but storage space in cupboard is rather limited
Overall a good hotel... particularly if you get the right room (!). Staff is welcoming, accommodating and professionally courteous. They sent back some stuff we had forgotten in our room's safe via UPS, as per our request (we were charged for this, as expected). Maybe they slightly overdo coronavirus precautions, but that’s OK: better (extra) safe than sorry.
The restaurant, however, is another affair entirely. First, they have no chef, and no kitchen staff to speak of on the premises. Dishes come from a caterer and some are frozen (they are quite straightforward about that). That’s quite unusual for a 4-star hotel (but remember that all hotels went up one star a few years ago when the French classification system was overhauled), but it could surely be made to work fine with the appropriate logistics and care.
I’m not sure those are in place, though. First, on the one night we had dinner at the hotel (we didn’t want to repeat the experience), an appalling number of dishes were “out of stock” on the already short menu, and some of the missing ones were only disclosed to us once we had the bad fortune to order them. Then, those that finally arrived were sad little things poorly arranged on a plate, canteen-style, no garnishes, no artistry of any kind whatsoever. They tasted good, but looked miserable (see our two photos). The duck rillettes were served in the can!
That “restaurant” is clearly set up with minimal interest and care, and only because 4-star hotels are required to have one as per regulations. This one barely deserves its name: to be avoided! There are much better choices available in town.
As usual, be careful and check the bill BEFORE you settle it: they may mistakenly charge for breakfasts even if you haven’t had them, and so you will have to request a correction. Same applies to nights in the underground paying garage, they initially charged for two when we only had one.
One final word: it happens more and more often that hotel and restaurant owners and/or managers see fit to respond to reviews posted by their guests. Just remember, when you read those responses, that such owners/managers have a vested interest in selling you their services, where I have no vested interest whatsoever in expressing the personal and objective viewpoints set forth in this review, and which faithfully describe my actual experience.
Loved our Stay at Divina Cahors

From the moment we arrived, we loved this hotel. It is so clean, so modern, not my normal style at all, but we loved it. The man at reception was welcoming and knowledgeable, and gave us directions to a good place to eat. The hotel is located so that it is an easy walk into town and to all the major tourist sites.
We could bring our bags in, there was an elevator, and plenty of room for re-organizing and re-packing. The room was spacious. We loved having a separate table and chairs seating area with retro Chartreuse chairs. Best of all, one wall was entirely glass, and we had a view of the river and an elaborate bridge going across. I love a room with a view. Breakfast was ample, good coffee, croissants, cereal and fruit. This was a great night's stay.
