This charming small hotel is so good I almost do not want to write a review so I can keep it a secret! When we arrived we were offered a larger room with a balcony, the room light and bright with charming and tasteful decoration. Roy and Jo are very welcoming and warm and our Dog was made very welcome....

What a great place. A gorgeous art deco Chambre d'Hote on the banks of the River Aude at Espéraza in the Languedoc, run by Roy and Jo - the most delightful, kind and attentive English couple. We had a balcony room overlooking the river and watched house martins, wagtails and herons dart by while having coffee. Breakfast is great -...

Located on the river , just beside an old stone bridge , this B& B is very picturesque. The room was very specious and the furniture showed a lot of good taste and gave a homely feeling . Also the small balcony overlooking the bridge and river added to that . The mattresses were extremely good and were welcomed after...

Wonderful b&b overlooking the river and just outside the historic center. The owner is very friendly and professional. The room is very spacious, the bed is confortable and the balcony you can admire the river. The breakfast, included in the price, it's plentiful and of high quality. Pets are welcome at no extra cost. Very recommended!

This isn't my first review or stay at La Maison de la Riviere. The rooms are spacious, location fantastic and hosts excellent. I am a regular visitor to the area and would definitely stay again. The location is ideal for a couple of local restaurants and bars, as well as the Sunday market being right outside. Esperaza makes a perfect...

Roy and Jo are probably the nicest people who run a B & B I have every met. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast included in the price was the best and there was plenty to eat. Everything was ready prior to our arrival. the rooms are large in comparison to other B & B's and they are very clean...

I booked for three nights after reading about the place here. The owners are very friendly, can help with tips about location around town, stores, restaurants etc. Breakfast was very nice with fresh bakery, the room was very big and nice, and the greatest feature was the view from the porch, the lovely river flowing under the bridge. The town's...

There were 4 of us traveling, which required two singles and a twin room, a tall order to fill. Out hosts Roy and Jo (and their two friendly dogs) were welcoming and greatly facilitated our travels from serving us breakfast at our preferred times to furnishing us with walking poles for the mountain climbs to Jo’s doing our laundry (we...

Such a beautiful building and charmingly furnished. Perfect location for Esperaza and surrounds. We booked a room by phone at short notice (same day) and our family of 5 were put up for a very reasonable price in a huge room, with ensuite, overlooking the river. It is difficult to find accommodation for 5 that doesn't mean a high price...

First class B&B. Excellent hosts, very friendly & gave us invaluable advice on places to see & routes to take. Breakfast was wonderful and the bread was the best I tasted while we were in France. Would.definitely stay again if we planned to revisit the area. The Creperie & restaurant Le Saint Gobain were excellent.
