Situated at the quiet end of a quiet village, but only 10-15 minutes from Carcassonne, this turned out to be an excellent choice, and our favourite discovery in France this year. The hotel has resisted the temptation to spend extravagantly and to charge luxury prices, but it seemed to us that it had chosen a respectable compromise by offering a variety of rooms at fair to high-ish prices, whilst keeping some of the quirkiness of a large country house. That said, we were perfectly happy with our spacious room and its modern facilities (airconditioning that actually works too!).
We stayed two nights, and very much appreciated the warm welcome at reception, and the friendliness and attentiveness of staff everywhere. We also enjoyed both our dinners (once outside, and once inside), and did not feel it was overpriced at all. Ignore suggestions in other reviews that the autoroute and high-speed railway are audible (we are light sleepers, but it didn't bother us). Perhaps they don't make the most of their gardens and public rooms, and it was a shame that the (free) WiFi only worked in one or two public areas. Other than that, it was a delight - and is definitely on our list for a return visit...
