“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Carcassonne Guesthouse for two nights at the end of our Barcelona - France trip. We could not have been happier with our choice. Location is perfect. Free parking in front of the building was very convenient. Patrick is a great host, knows very well both places of interest and local restaurants. He is building a small palace out of the old Maison de Maitre. We didn't want to leave our room! It may not be a 5-star hotel but is definitely a 5-star B&B. Carcassonne Guesthouse is a real gem and I highly recommend this B&B to anybody planning to stay in Carcassonne.

Had a fantastic last minute stay at this guest house. Three if us all shared the family room and each one of us said we would definitely return given the chance. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom luxuriously appointed and immaculately clean, and overall was very good value. Patrick was a fantastic host and made us all feel very welcome, and gave us brilliant advice on where to head to next, as well as generously giving us all a free glass of rose wine. But best of all was the location which simply could not be better. You should absolutely stay here if you're visiting carcassonne.

In Carcassonne, you would be hard pressed to find a better location than this B & B. It is relatively easy to find, across the street from a nice park and walking path, and within about a 15-20 minute walk from the La Cite. Free parking is convenient right in front of the B & B. Patrick, the owner, is a wealth of knowledge about the area and made some good sight seeing recommendations. Our upstairs room was good size with a great shower. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Carcassonne and the surrounding area, and would not hesitate to highly recommend this B & B.

Newly renovated, this guest house has large, comfortable rooms and a great breakfast served on a terrace with a view of the old city. Patrick and Breed couldn't have been more welcoming. Easy walk to the center of Carcassonne and to the old city, as well.

This small (5room) guest house is in the perfect location for exploring both the old town and new.
Patrick has paid close attention to details and the room was very well appointed. Our only complaint was the lack of water pressure in the shower. Breakfast was wonderful and the view from the terrace outstanding. If you are driving there is free parking in front of the house but you can do all your exploring on foot. Everything is close!

I've been meaning to write how lovely this place is for a few weeks now...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a short weekend, and I honestly believe that it made our trip. The rooms were spacious and bright, clean and yes, the beds are very comfortable (much better than what I have at my own place). Patrick is, as everyone says, a lovely host who offered us great tips on all the eating spots in Carcassonne and on what to see. We definitely loved Le Artichaut (get the steak) and Patrick's own Irish bar, The Celt, has good prices for evening drinking.

The location is great as well, not too far from any point in town- Le Cite, the train station or the newer part of town- all pretty central to the house, and the view from the terrace of Le Cite is amazing- definitely excellent with fresh fruit and yoghurt/breads provided. My boyfriend fell in love with some garlic cheese spread offered. A very simple, but delicious breakfast.

Not to mention Patrick was nice enough to drive us to the airport for a small fee (cheaper than normal taxi service) which was very helpful to us on an early Sunday morning. We would definitely stay here again, in fact we would probably base another trip to Carcassonne based on the accommodation... and probably the local market on Saturdays, which is ideal for picnic foods!

Such a lovely little place.
