Situated in beautiful village on the banks of the Canal du Midi. Hotel a little old (motel style) and unfortunately not air-conditioned. Bed very comfortable. Front desk staff fantastic - arranged urgent appointment with nearby dentist (40 kms away) for male traveller. Recommended.

My family and I stayed here for the night before we started our barge trip from the Le Boat basin. The owners were extremely helpful, storing all our groceries in their fridge until we were ready to leave as well as providing us with ice, a seemingly difficult commodity to buy in Castelnaudary. They also recommended a restaurant for dinner,... More

Easy to find by the Canal du Midi and a short walk into the town - staff friendly and hotel very clean - our room was a little small but the bed was comfortable and we slept well. This hotel has a lovely breakfast restaurant but does not offer dinner in the evenings - try 'La Belle Epoque' restaurant nearby... More

If you are doing a Canal du Midi self drive cruise starting from Castelnaudary with "Le Boat" I cannot suggest a better place. The hotel is very comfortable-not fancy- and the staff are very helpful.The owner even drove my partner to the local shoemaker to fix her shoes and then again the next day to pick them up!!! We were... More

This inexpensive hotel on the canal du midi is a real well run quiet little hotel. At first blush the room seemed a little spartan but from the man at the desk carrying my suitcase up the stairs to the reccommendations for dinner and etc to the refriderator in the room and the great location for walking along the canal...

Pleasant little hotel, nicely situated on the bank of the Canal du Midi in an urban setting a few minutes walk from the main town centre and the canal basin. Some good restaurants in easy reach. Rooms are small but clean, and everything worked. Bathroom fine apart from the lack of a hook for the shower head - but this... More

We stayed here as part of a month long bike trip across Europe. Castelnaudary is a pretty little town on the Canal du Midi and this hotel was a pleasure to stay in. It's about 5 mins walk out the town centre with a nice courtyard/car park at the front. There was fantastic secure storage for our bikes and the... More

Nice Hotel a short walk from the centre of Castelnaudary home of the cassoulet and a major port on the canal du midi(a link between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean avoiding a trip around Spain). The Hotel's terrace actually opens onto the Canal Du Midi and would be a good base for cycling - the hotel offers free secure bike... More
