I needed somewhere to call home for 5 nights during a tour, and this really filled the bill! The Aussie owner is wonderful...very friendly, very caring, and so enthusiastic to hear your stories! The room I had was on the ground floor (no stairs!) and although could be cramped for two people, was perfect for me...the other rooms on second... More

Loved it here, was amazing to stay inside the walls of this incredible city. Actually booked another place and last minute plumbing problems meant the owner booked us in here instead. Was not at all upset when we arrived great place to stay and would definitely recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is amazing within the wall of La Cite near the church. Everything you need is close, there is even a launderette and grocery a close walk away. The building is charming built in the 1400s (no lift people, so don't expect one) Our room was up one flight of stairs and was... More

You just can not ask more: Such beautiful accommodations and inside the walls of La Cité! Bedroom and bathroom really samll, but with such a charm!!! Very appealing decor. The parking is a little bit far, to say the least, outside the walls, but safe and comfy. Just remember to carry light.

Book it! What a perfect location in this UNESCO walled village. We couldn't believe that we were sleeping in a what felt like a castle. Very comfy bed, great shower & heating. Parking is free, the bnb easy to find & Jackie is a great hostess. Best breakfast so far in all of our travels. We enjoyed meeting Jean Louis... More

We stayed for three nights in this charming B&B. We had a room overlooking the garden. It had plenty of room and a large bathroom. Breakfast was provided and although adequate, was not plentiful. I requested gluten free bread for breakfast and although provided, it did need to be heated. The hostess was Australian and it was a relief that... More

Thank you for your review and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry that you did not mention the fridge in your room was not working . I suspect you did not realise you had to turn it on using the dial inside, as it was working prior to your stay and afterwards. I note your comments... More

Inside the walled city sits this wonderful B & B. We had to keep pinching ourselves that we were staying in a typically french home in a medieval city. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. What made the visit so special for us was the friendliness of the hosts, Jacqui and Jean-Louis. Nothing... More

Our biggest disappointment of 4 weeks staying in some fantastic accommodation, only to fall flat in Carcassonne. Average would describe our stay. The room was nothing special and although clean and fairly spacious, everything lacked the ambiance of a French getaway! Breakfast was a disaster - baguettes that had been FROZEN and then thawed and heated up. Can you believe... More

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our French home which is an Australian-French establishment. I am disappointed you did not voice your concerns at the time of your stay. Our croissants and bread are delivered fresh every morning, however because you were the last to breakfast all but one piece of fresh bread had been... More

The new owners are trying very hard to make this an enjoyable B&B, and they are succeeding. Rooms are of a good size and overlook a lovely garden. Being within the walls means that it is very quiet at night. Bathrooms all equipped with fancy showers but water pressure wasn't sufficient for the pulsating jets to do much good -... More

Thank you for your kind coments. I appreciate what you are saying about the luggage and the shuttle however the shuttle service is run by the Hotel de la Cite and Hotel Donjon (same owners), for their clients only. Unfortunately they will not offer their services to any other establsihments within the city, so it is not possible to subscribe... More

Rooms were nothing special, but nice breakfast and friendly hostess. A bit inconvenient getting the luggage. The owner doesn't subscribe to the shuttle bus service. You have to check in first, then get the parking pass and go back to the car. But it's worth it. It's a real treat staying inside the city walls. All the other tourists leave... More

I would just like to respond to a couple of things mentioned in this review: Re the shuttle service - unfortunately it is not a matter of "subscribing" to the hotel shuttle service to assist clients with their luggage. The shuttle service is run by the two big hotels in La Cite, who do not offer the service to clients... More
