We were booked in here by our cycling tour operator. It doesn't look great when you arrive, more like a motel than a hotel, but our room was in the main building. It is well located by the Canal du Midi, visible even from our ground floor room. The room was very small and somewhat 'tired' in appearance and facilities...

We have stayed at this hotel several times, usually when we've attended the Fete de Cassoulet in August. We have always requested a room on the upper floor overlooking the Canal du Midi. The rooms are simple but immaculately clean and quite adequate. I take a small battery operated fan when I travel in rural southern France in the summer...

To be honest I was disappointed in the room, it was small, lino on the floor and it needed a good clean and a bit of paint on the doors etc which were not as clean as they could be. It felt like a "Budget chain" hotel which I wasn't expecting. There was no kettle in the room BUT the...

Great value, excellent location. Free secure parking, free wifi with a strong signal, clean, friendly and only a 3-4 minutes walk into town. Right on the canal so very quiet and nice outlook from canal side rooms.

We booked two nights at this hotel on our route home from a holiday down on the coast with a view to exploring the Canal du Midi. What a delight! The room was comfortable (overlooking the canal), staff extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfasts were excellent for a hotel of this rating. It was also extremely well positioned for...

We booked a single night at this hotel primarily for its proximity to the LeBoat canal boat hire base in Castelnaudary, France. But it exceeded expectations. We'd needed a single night to bridge the gap of arriving from UK by plane to Toulouse, then train to Castelnaudary. The hoyel was very close from rail station, no problem to walk it,...

We arrived at this hotel late at night after having caught the TGV from Paris, loved this place, small and typically French, I thought, breakfast was fantastic and the rooms very comfortable, we had a view of the canal and watched the boats going up and down. We stayed one night as we were picking up a self-drive canal boat...

A simple hotel right on the canal, and close to the train station, restaurants and Le Boat. We walked from the train station to the hotel. Our room was on the second floor--hump your suitcases up the stairs. The room had linoleum floors, a double bed, a desk, TV, and bathroom with a tub/shower. One large window opened to the...
