We spent two nights here. The staff are very friendly and helpful and made an effort to squeeze us in for dinner when we hadn't booked. We had dinner on the terrace which is lovely. The meal and wine were very good, the fillet of beef was excellent. They seemed to be understaffed for such a busy evening so the staff were working very hard and service was a little slow but not a problem. The rooms are quite basic but adequate and clean - i would rate this as a two star hotel (UK rating). There is no air conditioning or fan and as our room led straight out onto the street we couldn't leave the windows/shutters open at night. It was so hot it made sleeping very uncomfortable. It would be good for these rooms to have curtains which offer some privacy from the street and perhaps a fan. Montsegur is a small, charming village nestled in the mountains. It is very picturesque and steeped in Cathar history. We climbed the mountain to the castle which is a steep and energetic climb of about 30 minutes - bring proper walking shoes! Overall we enjoyed our stay here and this is a beautiful region to explore.
