Our room was on the right hand side just as you walk through the gates. It was a beautiful room, lovely bathroom, lots of space. The whole hotel has a very authentic feel about it, and the breakfast room is beautiful. Simone is lovely, a great host and doesn't speak a word of English, so be ready to have your French phrases at hand. Simone bakes her own bread, and for me, breakfast was lovely. Cereal if you wanted it, orange juice, cup of tea/coffee, and freshly baked bread with cheese and ham. With the medieval city of Carcassonne only a 10 minute walk up the hill, the hotel is ideally located on Rue Trivalle. Should we come to Carcassonne again, we will probably stay here. Très Bon!

Stayed as a family of four for two nights. We stayed in the upper level family suite with 2 rooms, "morgane and merlin suite". It was a very pleasant surprise to find that air conditioning units had been recently installed in these rooms given it was mid 30'sC when we were visiting. This is a tourist town - so I had limited expectations, but this was a very pleasant place to stay, a good value for money. The castle was a 10 min walk uphill, easily managed with our 2 kids (aged 7). No need for a car - and another plus was free gated parking. With the air con we slept well. The breakfasts were very nice. Simone was an excellent host, limited English not a problem for us though as we spoke French. Simone recommended two restaurants for dinner- Le Trivalou which was a 1 min walk down the street and was excellent, and another place in the old city which was also quite nice (can't remember the name - but had a nice dinner in the garden under the trees, food at Le Trivalou was better though). There is also a nice shop across the street from Le Trivalou which sold regional products, bought some nice pasta and other food products.

Stayed here with my family for two nights and it was really a great great experience. It´s the most authentic and romantic place I have ever stayed. It´s old, but hey, you also feel like living in the middle of history. The service is very good, so is breakfast and Simone is a wonderful host. This is NOT the Marriott, no fancy rooftop cocktail bar or swimming pool, but it´s so much better and exactly how you want to live when you visit a historical place like Carcassonne. High value for money!

This B&B is located nearby the fortress and the bridge to take the photo of the fortress. This is a very homey B&B in Carcassonne. The property's owner was very helpful and gave us all we needed for a one day visit. The room is spacious and well equipped for traveller's needs. Location is perfect for the old town visit and for strioling across the bridge in the morning. Breakfast is plentiful and nice. We felt very comfortable staying a place that we can park our car, which we did in this B&B. It is worth for us to stay in this nice place. What we love most is the French hospitality we experience from Simone, the owner.
