This hotel is about 3 miles from Carcassonne and is ideally situated to visit the medieval city.
It is difficult to park at Carcassonne as parking is limited. It is best therefore to check in at this hotel and get a taxi.
Chateau Cavanac is fairly old in it's own right. Rooms and bathrooms have very high ceilings but are more than adequate, with plenty of towels. The room lighting is dark and the wife had difficulty putting make up on. The Chateau obviously is very French style and covers a wide area, with the lodgings in a seperate building. The two dinning areas in another part and reception in another building. The car park is very large and can accomodate at least 50-60 cars.
The restaurant had tremendous atmosphere and it was very obvious that this was frequented by the locals as it was very busy. This did not make the service any slower as it was spot-on and the staff were extremely friendly. Food was pretty good too. Counters of fish and meat were on display and was extremely fresh.
Breakfast was also very good with plenty of choice and lots of on site fresh bakery being available.
Reception staff were also very friendly, this being very important as first impressions count for a lot.
Overall a good visit and slightly expensive
