The city of Carcassonne is fabulous - particularly at night when the crowds leave.
To stay at a hotel inside the city ramparts, you need to park in a special car park outside the walls and have your luggage taken inside by your hotel staff - make sure you check this before you arrive in this busy place. This means there is some delay in receiving your luggage if you arrive at the same time as a coach party as we did.
We did not get a room in the hotel itself but in the Maison des Remparts. Our room was very small and rather cramped for the two of us with our suitcases, but perfectly comfortable.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful but busy with coach parties staying.
The city restaurants are very busy in the day with crowds of tourists - I can highly recommend the Table de la Reine - voted 4th best pizza in the world - it was certainly the best I have ever eaten. And the desserts were really special too.
