“Always with a smile, this is the company policy.”
Annabelle and Jordan took over The Originals City, Hotel Le Moulin Rouge, Brive-la-Gaillarde West in 2002. “The hotel belonged to my father before,” explains Annabelle. “Jordan and I went into this venture because we love the variety of the work in this profession and the rewarding human contact.” Over the years their attentiveness, hospitality and friendliness have made this 3-star establishment a benchmark in Terrasson-Lavilledieu and the Dordogne region. “We like to know our guests really well, what their habits are, their expectations. This enables us to offer facilities such as a refreshing summer pool or a bistrot restaurant and services adapted to them. And when they return we welcome them like it was their home.” This approach, the services of the attentive staff and the family ambiance at the hotel are a hit with guests. “Some have even become friends!”
