The rooms here are clean, recently painted and depressing in a minor sort of way. The garden is really the car park...If it isn't we never found it ....and we looked hard! Breakfast I thought a bit on the expensive side. In summary an OK sort of place but nothing to rave about.

Well, the price wasn't bad, but this felt like a budget motel. No charm. No amenities. The location is right on the canal which is nice. I wish we had found a better place to stay. We went in to town for breakfast.

The location is perfect for a le Boat canal cruise. The room is small, but very clean, and the staff is very good. Nice cold breakfast at no extra charge, free parking, and walk to the marina and restaurants easily. We watched the boats from our window.

We quite liked this little place. It had a lot of charm and the staff was above average - very personable and professional. The rooms were a bit small and dated, but they were clean and beds were comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

This is a barebones but clean and very friendly small hotel where we stayed overnight before picking up a boat to cruise the Midi Canal with family members from around the world. The location is right on the canal and we were allowed to leave our luggage and all our purchases from the farmers market until we could pick up... More

We arrived on a Saturday night without reservation and managed to snap up the last room—ground floor. We needed off-street parking as our car was full of camping gear and other precious items so this was a great choice in that respect. The ladies at the front desk were very pleasant, professional and affable. Rooms are motel-like. Basic and small,... More

Very old but tidy. Staff is helpful but one has to ask. The "campus" of the hotel is very nice and well kept. We were on the Canal du Midi for a week so we were looking forward to a room "off the boat". The hotel is in a good and convenient location once you leave the boat

Friendly and functional rather than a great french experience, but I'd happily recommend it for an overnight stay in this pleasant small town. You can see the canal even from the ground floor which made it very easy to find at the end of a long day biking.

We were booked in here by our cycling tour operator. It doesn't look great when you arrive, more like a motel than a hotel, but our room was in the main building. It is well located by the Canal du Midi, visible even from our ground floor room. The room was very small and somewhat 'tired' in appearance and facilities... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times, usually when we've attended the Fete de Cassoulet in August. We have always requested a room on the upper floor overlooking the Canal du Midi. The rooms are simple but immaculately clean and quite adequate. I take a small battery operated fan when I travel in rural southern France in the summer... More
