We flew to Carcassonne and then took a taxi to the hotel (10 - 15 mins) . We spent two nights here and found it to be everything we wanted. The location is fantastic, a very short walk to the main entrance gate to the old city. The impressive walls of the city providing a spectacular backdrop to the view from the breakfast room/bar/patio of the hotel. Hotel du Chateau is a tranquil haven from the hustle and bustle of the city. The staff are helpful and friendly. The decor is modern and tasteful. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and high quality of finish to our room. The tiling and soft furnishings were done to a high standard. I only have one tiny complaint about the small pillows...some were very hard and others soft and lumpy!! The bathroom had a shower, smallish bath and a double sink and plenty of soft white fluffy towels. The breakfast was great, fresh fruit, pastries, cheese, ham, yogurt, boiled egg and locally produced juice.
We also used the heated pool and jacuzzi and although the weather was a bit chilly I can imagine these features would be very welcome in the summer. I didn't use the spa so unable to comment on that.
Mention must be made of the two adorable, well behaved dogs and also of the resident cat, all the pets friendly and while we were there the dogs went to the grooming parlour! Don't be put off by the animals they help make this hotel the gem that it is.
The hotel is small and this adds to its charm, creating a personal feel.
We would certainly revisit and also recommend it to anyone visiting Carcassonne.
