From the photos of the hotel, the building seemed to look like a prefab school, so it was a good surprise to arrive and find the view at the back of the building, right above the scenic Canal du Midi. I agree with your reviewer William K. that the owner is somewhat strange and extremely nosy, making inappropriate comments even... More

Location with bedrooms overlooking the Canal du Midi is great; rooms are basic but OK except for inconvenient opening of window which blocks access to one side of the bed. Our main impression however was of the "welcome" from the smug and patronising proprietor who first greeted us as old friends, then told us off for booking via an agency,... More

A good basic stopover hotel, walk to the windmill with wonderful views and the church is worth a visit too. There is a nice walk around the Grand Basin of the Canal. The hotel provides a good breakfast and secure storage for bikes.

Stayed here one night before picking up our boat at the Le Boat dock in Castelnaudary. Owner/operators were warm and welcoming and immediately made us feel at home. Our room was simple, a comfortable queen bed, shower with good water pressure and a separate W/C. Our room had a small window that overlooked a back garden - nothing spectacular -... More

We stayed in this hotel as there were not a lot available in Castelnaudary when we booked. The rooms were old and the hotel needs some refurbishment but the price reflected this. The host was very helpful and nothing was a problem. The hotel was situated beside the canal and just down the road from the town.

Ideally located for the canal du midi and within easy walking distance of the town and local restaurants. Everything about the plce can be described as adequate. Main thing we didn't like was that the handles have been removed from the bedroom windows to stop them being opened so there is no fresh air into the room

I stayed one night at this lovely hotel located on the Canal du Midi. I had a large, comfortable room that overlooked the canal. There was a large festival going on down the street until 3 am, but I knew about it and rather enjoyed the energy and festivities - and the manager provided some earplugs but they didn't seem...

We stayed one night before collecting Le Boat at the start of our trip. The manager resolved our thirst with beers on arrival in a dry spot in the dining area overlooking the canal as it was pouring outside. He also enabled further refreshment and stayed chatting when we returned from dinner as other establishments we searched for a bar... More

Booked for one night whilst touring the area. The hotel is basic but offers some activities and is well located for exploring the canal and the town. Breakfast was not great and rather expensive for what we had. As with many French hotels, there was a TV but no kettle or fridge in the room. There is a coffee machine... More

As the name implies, the hotel backs on to the canal a short distance before the canal turns towards the canal harbor. It s fairly easy to find, although the GPS may suggest the hotel entry is a couple of hundred meters further from the town than it is. The town is quite small, so which the Hotel is a... More
