We booked a half-board deal in this hotel-restaurant (or really, a restaurant with rooms) and it did not disappoint. The food was wonderful, different for each of our five nights and the restaurant well deserves all the stickers it displays on the door. The service and welcome were superb. The bedroom was very small and basic, as was the bathroom but it was clean and everything worked. The rooms are just across the street from the restaurant. The restaurant terrace overlooks the gorge and the views are stunning . Minerve itself is a unique, unspoilt "cite" of the Cathars and the experience of staying rather that taking a day trip is really worthwhile. There is no official parking in the village (paying carpark 200m walk away) but if staying overnight is it possible to find a space in the street.The hotel also has a small garage.
