I should have read the reviews more carefully, arrived having made my booking to find the hotel in a most run down part of town, The entrance and stairway were dark and dingy. After check in my room on 1st floor was accessed by the steep stairs with frayed carpets and torn wallpaper. The room was standard size but the ensuite tiny. the carpet was stained and again wallpaper ripped. On the plus side if you can call it that the sheets were clean and the aircon worked.
The most positive thing to come out of my stay was that I didnt have the wife with me, I'd be well in the doghouse now if she had.
I had dinner in town up the hill and was very intimidated walking back at night through the poor sreets to the hotel.

We booked this hotel in advance without seeing it while cycling the Canal du Midi. As we arrived late afternoon on the Sunday of the Feria in Beziers, we didn't have much option but to take the room offered. If we had any other option we would have gone elsewhere.

We were able to stow our bikes securely in the hotel garage, but after this the experience went downhill. The carpet in the corridors and stairs was badly worn and faded, and the lighting made everything seem more dingy. The bathroom was tiny and there was no plug for the sink. The towels supplied were a very grey shade of white, frayed and worn. The receptionist showed little interest in us beyond insisting that we pay up front, something we were never asked for during anywhere else during our trip.

We didn't take breakfast here, but headed on as soon as we got up next morning. We stayed at a range of other places along the Canal du Midi. This cost slightly more than a number of them and represented poor value and demonstrated poor service by comparison.

Stayed here with a friend for a stop over before travelling to Spain the next morning. The hotel was easy to find once coming out of the station. The room was cute with a ski chalet like feel. The bathroom was quite small but had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The hotel is a five minute walk from a giant modern shopping centre with lots of great shops and some even more amazing restaurants. Perfect location for those travelling by train.

As we were on bikes on the Canal du Midi towpath we had to find a hotel close by. Room on 3rd floor and no lift, but it was clean and had aircon and a full modern bathroom. Breakfast was fine given the all inclusive price of 68€ for two of us for the night. Staff were pleasant....the young chap offered to carry our paniers up to the room. Public areas could certainly do with a makeover...sticky carpet all the way up to the third floor. Area around the hotel is definitely a bit doubtful and although we walked uptown to eat, I was glad to get back to the hotel. Our bikes were put in the garage overnight at no charge, but they don't seem to have very many places for cars. Wouldn't choose to go back there, but in an emergency it was OK

Got there accidently, late in the evening, midweek night. Young girl @ reception was super friendly and helpful, spoke good English. The older woman very rude, she even picked up the phone on purpose when we tried (for the 2nd time) to pay for the stay with the card, although she knew it would disconnect the transaction. Answered the phone claiming she spoke english and was unable to answer basic questions. Very unpleasent and actually might have been the owner of the place. Room super basic! No air-con just a fan in the corner, very stuffy, impossible to sleep, shared bathroom but - toilet on different floor (just off the staircase!) and shower on another (off the stairs too - veeery stincky!). Carpark was there... but full so we had to park on the street in quite a shady area really.

Room Tip: well, if you have to but only when on low budget

After several hours on the train it was great to find the hotel so handily located by the station. The room was basic, but that was reflected in the price. There was a bath in the bathroom which was a bonus, although the very heavy stable doors to the bathroom were a bit scary, and there was little privacy because of them. The breakfasts were good and the staff friendly and very helpful. I would certainly consider staying there again.

Arrived early evening tired and hungry to be greeted by an Alsatian dog in reception which was intimidating. Told could not put car garage until 11pm and the it would cost 6 Euros. Had to park in street which proved difficult in an unfamiliar town. Stairs and corridors dark, dingy with flaking paint and dirty paintwork. En-suite miniscule and carpet filthy but, on a plus point, sheets were clean. Breakfast poor. All in all quite seedy. And finally, told restaurant not open that night!
