This is a small hotel which is, in some ways, stuck in a time warp. Set around a courtyard, all rooms have high ceilings and oak beams, the bedroom floors have original (sometimes loose) tiles and there is an elegant staircase and library. One expects to see characters in C18 costume in the corridors. Yet, there is also a spacious... More

Intimate, elegant, romantic and lovely the Relais Royal is all and more. Our room was quite large with high ceilings, a stone floor and well appointed. A little more closet or hanging space would have been helpful. I was excited to see a Nespresso machine, although the hotel ran out of pods the second day. However they were happy to... More

I spent last week at this beautiful hotel for a holiday with my extended family. Because we were such a large party (19!) we had the hotel completely to ourselves. Roger is a wonderful host and made us all feel so at home from the moment we arrived - nothing was too much trouble and we all felt like we... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed in this lovely Hotel, after reading all the positive reviews on line. We had booked a large room and had thought we would splash out a bit as it was going to be my girlfriends birthday around that time. On arriving we were greeted by the owner who was very helpful, carrying my girlfriends bag... More

Mirepoix is a beautiful medieval fortified town with very impressive half timbered buildings and a magnificent covered arcade. A short walk from the large central Place du Marché is the Relais Royal where my husband and I spent three nights while touring "Cathar country". Located in a historic mansion which has been lovingly restored by the current owners, Relais Royal... More

We booked in on our last night of a week long trip that included Carcassonne and Bordeaux. From arrival to departure it was a flawless stay. Our car was taken to their garage, an important feature because we had twelve cases of wine. We were shown to our room: huge with a high wood ceiling and rafters. Our twin beds... More

The hotel is in the center of the small village of Mirepoix which has a lovely farmer's market, and is a very convenient to drive to see Carcassonne. The room we had was a good size with very high ceilings, and the common areas had tapestries and lovely touches. The overall feel in our room and for most the hotel... More

Charming and with exquisite furnishings including Villeroy & Boch ceramics in the bathroom, this is a fabulous place to stay. When we arrived there was no formal reception desk. We were actually first met by a large labrador! Shortly after, a lady appeared who didn't speak any English (or chose not to!) and we garbled our way in to being... More

Like most of the previous reviewers our experience of this charming hotel was absolutely wonderful in numerous ways. The care and attention of the staff and the owner, at all times of the day, was perfect. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable, the welcome tray extensive and a pleasant touch. Often the charm of creaking wood floors, soaring ceilings... More

My wife and I had a very good stay at this fine old hotel, but we came away with different opinions. To start, we arrived on a Saturday evening after driving through the Pyrenees and discovering a Cathar Castle. When we got to the hotel around 6:00 PM there was no one to greet us. All of the doors were... More
