Stunning location along side the River Aveyron. The room is nice, not exceptional but the setting is beautiful. Walk along the river and up to the castle is very interesting. But the real reason to stay over night is to go to the unbelievably good restaurant at the hotel.

The setting for this is ideal and you do feel like you are stepping back in time. We ordered the breakfast which was generous and delicious. We had not expected to eat at the restaurant but when we arrived it was the only thing open. The service was excellent and the food good if you like that kind of thing... More

Only downside was restaurant did not open until following day... More

Everything about this hotel/restaurant is first class. I booked 4 months in advance and I could only get a basic room at 100Euros/night, which was not a problem in this gorgeous location. We came to see the beautiful tiny town of Belcastel and eat in the restaurant, which in itself is worth a detour. Instead of staying 4 nights in... More

This hotel is lovely, charming and it work every penny. We were housed in the superior room and it was stunning! A large, bright room with a beautiful view. We had... More

We found this town when looking at photos of France and the photos alone made us change our driving route to include it in our stop for 1 night. Well worth the drive!! I cannot speak highly enough about the charm of this town. The hotel sits right on the river with a private sitting area overlooking the bridge. Completely... More

The view of the restaurant showing the approach from the medieval bridge with its Roman influence is quite interesting. That bridge is exactly a roman chariot wide showing where the influence is from. To get to the hotel you have to carefully cross that bridge, not with a typical large vehicle and yes, those are rocks jutting out from the... More

My girlfriend and I were travelling around Europe for 2 months so to help manage our expenses we decided to go to the restaurant but stay at the campsite by the river. I was relying upon the gps to get us to the correct place, but unfortunately i didn't realise that there are 2 Belcastels in France that are approximately... More

We visited Belcastel last week and were lucky enough to dine in the restaurant. It was the best dinning experience we have experienced!Better than a 3 star restaurant we have eaten in. We will definitely go back to sample the delights of the hotel.

Locale is very quaint, rooms very clean, great view of the river from room #7 and excellent breakfast. Great value in this small lovely village. Our room had a king size bed, AC and super quiet. Could not ask for a better place to rest...
