We stayed here two nights at the end of a barging trip on the Canal du Midi. The setting is gorgeous, especially with the fall leaves on the canal, but the room and service left much to be desired. We arrived on a Saturday evening, so perhaps because the next day was Sunday, the towels in the bathroom were not changed, nor was the room cleaned or refreshed in any way. In fact, after the breakfast on Sunday, which was the usual cold fare, not a person was seen in the hotel. Our towels which we assumed would be replaced had to be resurrected from the damp heap in the tub, and we dutifully made our bed and emptied our trash! Some warning about the lack of cleaning service on Sunday ( and as we discovered, Monday as well) would have made us more careful with our towels and general tidiness. The room itself was quite odd: the toilet was in the entry hall and the sink, tub, shower were in another room down two steps through the sitting area, through the sleeping area, up two steps and voila! You could then get to the sink to wash your hands! Very strange setup. The room did have a lovely view of the vineyards and the trees along the canal and there was a pretty patio area with canal views. There is a TV, although we didn't use it, a hair dryer, a tub&shower, but beware! There is no shower curtain and the water goes everywhere in the bathroom! We did not require AC, so no comment on that. Easy walking into the small and charming town of Homps. Lively flea market on Saturday and great strolls along the lazy canal, over the bridge and through the marina area.
