We loved our room, with balcony. Dinner was very nice and our host was very generous in letting us choose items from the expensive menu, for a budget menu price. The host himself is quite a character.

We stayed here for a night on our way to the Pays Cathares. The dinner was very good, especially the creme brulee that followed an excellent vegetable puff pastry. The rooms, however, were strictly average. Our room had a balcony that overlooked a compound that smelled of garbage in the morning, while we hardly got sleep at night due to... More

We were cycling along the Canal du Midi and stayed here for one night. The owner, Francois greeted us and our room was a lovely traditional french room. It was rustic with a modern tweak in the bathroom. There was a mezzanine level up to the high ceiling with an old ladder as access but we never looked up there!.... More

This hotel had a moldy shower, ripped and dirty carpet, and foot-high weeds growing at the front entry; how could others rate this place so highly? I've submitted pictures, which (when posted) will show these things. Our room had absolutely NO wifi and no air conditioning. So, we had to sit in a very hot stairway landing area to use... More

We were booked in here as part of a biking trip down the Canal du Midi. It would as almost rate as rustic, but professionally casual would probably describe it better, the food was excellent as other reviewers have noted, and being right beside the canal made the outdoor dining area very special indeed. When we got the bill in... More

We enjoyed a perfect night. Our two children slept in a bed in the lower floor connected yo our room. We even could make a wine tasting. It would have been even better with a longer bed. The children loved playing with the dog.

Book early, we went twice on the recommendation of our hotel and on each occasion it was mobbed, but we were always looked after. We would recommend a few drinks at the canalside before dinner, as it really gets you I the mood! When and if we go back, we will make a bee line for here. Especially liked the... More

The bedroom was adequate - spacious with balcony, clean, basic. However for the price it is good value. However, the food in the restaurant is outstandingly good and this more than made up for the room. Location is great, right by the side of the Canal du Midi.
