Our stay here was simply excellent! The room was nice, but odd, with separate rooms for toilet and bath and a large builtin cabinet. Breakfast was the best I have ever had at any hotel, and the service in the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner was exceptional! As with most French restaurants, the dinners are not for vegetarians, though... More

We decided to stay at this property based on Michelin and Tripadvisor reviews. We expected good service, good location, and perhaps strong personalities among the staff. We got all that and it was all better than expected. We were treated with great courtesy by everyone. As noted by others, the building was elegant if in need of furniture refreshing. Our... More

We stayed at the Domaine d'Auriac the week of July 21st 2014 for 2 elegant nights. We have stayed at many Chateau and Relais Gourmand properties over the years. We have never been treated so graciously and personally anywhere in the world. Marie-Helene and her family and staff were the best hosts we have ever had. Our suite was elegant.... More

Domaine d'Auriac is an excellent family-owned hotel in just outside of Carcassonne, but just 1km from the Cite, the most important monument. Spectacular grounds, very intimate service, great, 1 Michelin star restaurant, and wonderful, knowledgeable staff. Only consideration is the rooms are perhaps a bit basic for what one could expect, but the rest makes more than up for it.... More

We have been travelling throughout Portugal, Spain and France the last two and 1/2 weeks and thought all of our hotels up to this point were beautiful however....this hotel was superior in service, surroundings. The Rigaudis family obviously take great pride in this beautiful family hotel. Thank you for our memorable stay. We were sad to leave.

We spent one night at this beautiful country house hotel. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have done more to make us (and our dog) feel welcome. The room was spacious and comfortable and the grounds are lovely. We didn't use the pool but it looked very nice. We at the Bistro by the golf course and enjoyed... More

This was our fourth visit to Le Domaine d'Auriac. The setting is wonderful (also has golf and tennis). Every detail is very carefully handled. Almost all of the staff speak some English. The gastronomic restaurant -- fine food, wines and service. We can't wait to return. (It is very reasonably priced for its quality!!

I've stayed at several Relais and Chateaux properties, this one being my least favorite. Rooms and bathrooms need some updating. Bathroom handle was broken off several times. Lack of outlets. Rooms just weren't that nice and certainly below what I'd expect from a five star hotel. Front desk was peculiarly acceptable of where our towels were one afternoon and had... More

We stayed overnight on our way to Spain, so did not use the spa or other facilities, but enjoyed our stroll around the gardens. A very warm welcome and we were upgraded to a pleasant room overlooking the garden. The dinner menu was truly "Michelin star" - from the amuse bouche to the souffle for dessert.The Sommelier suggested an excellent... More

Carcasonne is an awesome city and Domain d'Auriac is the only place to stay! Beautifully located, the hotel is stylish, the staff professional and friendly and the rooms tastefully furnished. The food is extraordinary with the lobster menu delightful and varied. The wines were phenomenal and complemented the cheeseboard and desserts beautifully. A wonderful experience!
