Room & location were very good Restaurant service was very slow (1 hour from ordering to delivery).
Friendliness of staff, quality of food and the interior decor were all superb and Quillan was a very pleasant town.
Having arrived very late in the early morning due to our unfamilairity with the French roads we were disappointed to find the hotel closed. We saw a phone number to ring but our mobile did not work in this area so we looked for another hotel. We culd not find one so we went back to Le Chaumiere and tried to knock to rouse soeone, but no answer. I heard some noise coming form a cafe down the road and went down there and in our imperfect French managed to get them to ring the number and they arrnaged to ahve the hotel open. We were very lucky that we fund someone who obviously knew the hotel manager and communictaed our problem. It was especially gratifying because we had been driving for telve hours and had our 4 year old son with us. I think they need to arrnage a night bell in case things like what happened to us occure.Otehrwise the staff were very helpful and kind.The room was especially comfortable and we could not fault it in any way. The location is excellent an dthe views form the wndown were lovely and gave a tatse of the area. We had bene looking for a hotel close to the mountains and close enough to the sea so we could spend at leats a day there which we did.
clean and comfortable rooms, great meal at the restaurant, great location to visit the region no elevator, room fridge does not keep items cold
I have stayed at this hotel before and standards were as high as last time the rooms are modern and first rate the breakfast on the terrace with views of the mountains is special and the staff are always friendly and helpful
It was a good hotel in a lovely town and if we go back to that area of France we would be happy to use the hotel again. Everything was fine.
great location, at edge of medieval village of Mirepoix. Great value, good restaurant, comfortable and clean room.
Spacious rooms; free internet access; good restaurant; helpful staff.
Comfortable bed & room. Good continental breakfast & morning staff excellent.. Very bad management, unable to delegate - for example waitresses helping behind bar had to ask prices.
The staff were friendly, the restaurant was fantastic and it was near enough to the town about a 3 minute walk whilst not being right in the middle which I imagine could be a bit disturbing on a market day for instance.
Spacious, clean room, excellent bathroom, recently renovated. Very professional dining service with lovely food. Disappointing breakfast especially the croissants.
Excellent Meals and a very good choice
Nice little hotel with good location. Easy to park. Spacious room.
The bedroom was relatively spacious and most comfortable with good air conditioning and an excellent bathroom (with a bath and a good shower). Breakfast was simple but good with delicious home-made preserves. Lunch was very good and the set menus represent excellent value for money.The hotel has a sizeable car park and is very near the centre of Mirepoix. Altogether a very good two star hotel. We shall definitely stay again. Nothing
The hotel room was very spacious and clean. The location was very accessible for the centre of Mirepoix.
The hotel was good value for money. The staff were very helpful and made no extra charge for additional secure car parking for a valuable vintage motor. The room was clean and the bathroom exemplary, very modern with every facility. The railway station was on the opposite side of the road, but there are only two trains a day, so not intrusive! No airconditioning, but not a problem so high in the mountains and a fan provided. Excellent hotel in house and several nearby, as are teh shops and town centre. Would stay here again. On a busy road junctions near traffic lights so traffic noise can be intrusive.
Convenient for visiting relatives in the area. The rooms were large, reasonably well equipped but the decor was dated. Parking was difficult in the street outside the hotel but free public parking was only a short walk away.
Very enjoyable stay, staff very helpful and friendly.Room clean and comfortable. Would stay here again No
Friendly staff, convenient location. Responded to e mail booking request very quickly.
Good service, clean and homely room. Daily cleaned and good views. Unobrusive staff presence. One small complaint would be the lift that emmited a gas like smell.
It's cuite a cute hotel, the rooms are excellent for the rate, and the staff are very helpfull and kind... I had a great stay...! :0)
Our room was lovely, but then we did have the family room and there were only 2 of us! View from the bathroom over the town was lovely. Private parking for the car and the precious bike was a godsend, but you must ask for it otherwise it's the public carpark opposite or the street. Just on edge but lovely walk through the streets of Quillan. The girl receptionist was very pleasant.Thanks for giving us the price of the room for being only 2 of us when it was a family room and destined to be more expensive. It was a bit shabby in places ( reception) (bathroom tiles) but a sit was only a little 2 star we forgave it! Man at hotel desk should learn to smile a bit more, considering he's meeting people all the time!
Nice and clean rooms, friendly staff No airconditioning- it was terribly hot and difficult to sleep as a result
Nice new but old-fashioned decor. In the room the beadspread, chair covers, armchair cover, little table cloth and curtains were all of the same material. Madame was very helpful with out enquiries. Reception by Monsieur on the first night was a bit dour. We asked if he could recommend a restaurant (the restaurant in the hotel being closed that evening). He replied "no". In fact we had a great meal on the main square a few doors away.
Staff v. helpful and obliging. Evening dinners excellent either dining inside or in the wonderful courtyard area. You should sample the cheese board, especially the house cheese. Decorations tired, but rooms totally adequate, and hotel situated in quiet side road of delightful Mirepoix Town. Excellent value for money!
The family that owns and runs the hotel were always very friendly and helpful. The WiFi internet connection worked very well in our room. Mirepoix is a good centre for touring that area, and the town is pleasant, with a large market on Monday mornings. It rained. Not the fault of the hotel.
value for money and very convenient for centre of town
The food was excellent and the hotel had a lot of character stairs only - had to take our two big suitcases up a turning staircase - nolift
Can be hot in the room on hot days
Super location for exploring cathar country, very helpful staff the food was of a high standard and good value for money
Fairytale castle, very small rooms, no air conditioning or fans available even though 36degree temps.... Arrogant rude staff who were very distant and would not engage in conversation, Argued and rudely refused to cook vegetarian food, Arrogant rude staff who were very distant and would not engage in conversation, or help with baggage etc, Waiter argued and rudely refused to cook vegetarian food, not in the least helpful.
Beautiful hotel, friendly staff. excellent restaurant Restaurant and bar opening limited in off season i.e. closed sunday to Tuesday
Food was outstanding, staff were very attentive, hotel was beautiful, rooms were clean and comfortable. The only tiny negative point was the room was quite stuffy, we could have done with a fan or some air conditioning, but it wasn't a massive problem and we could probably have asked for one but didn't bother!
It was a nice quiet atmosphere, very peaceful for a short stay and a good centre for trips. The evening meal was very good and nciely served, but the menu could be varied more especially for those who don't eat meat. Also fresh fruit at breaskfast would be good.
The staff were wonderful and the evening dinner was superb. The maitre d was extremely helpful to my friend when she was having difficulty. The lack of flowers in the courtyard which would have added to the ambience we felt. Although the food was full of flavour it was not really hot enough when it arrived at our table. Older people do appreciate a cup of tea in the room.
The Chateau was very nice, it is situated on the banks of the river Aude the rooms facing the river are fantastic. The meals and service were great although dinner was quite expensive but well worth it for at least one occassion.
The room was spotless The room was possibly the smallest room we have ever stayed in in any hotel. That was very disappointing
Very nice Castle. Beautiful surroundings. Food is good too. Near Carcassonne. A bit expensive. There is not much to do in Couiza.
Owners extremely friendly and helpful The view and stunning surroundings with easy access to town Interior a little characterless and basic which did not reflect the farmhouse appearance of the outside
The hotel was great and had all amenities we needed and the owners were wonderful - extremely helpful. The scenery and wildlife around the hotel was also great
Beautiful to be in the countryuside, but close to Mirepoix. Very clean rooms and very comfortable. Superb value for money.
Fantastic area, good value for money, friendly lovely owners
location and food were good also it was a very peaceful night sleep after driving all day. the owner was very helpful and pleasant nothing
Charmingly managed by English owners. Beautiful location in countryside on GR footpaths overlooking lake. Good wildlife area : birds, flowers, butterflies. Management wildife friendly. Short distance from historic and beautiful Mirepoix, Limited but interesting menu.
The Hotel owners were excellent! We have 2 small but lively children but this did not worry them and they could not do enough for us. A pleasure to deal with when compared to some of the bigger Hotels who could take a leaf out of this couples book on hospitality and how to treat their guests. The Hotel itself was ideal for us, the room was spacious and the food beautiful. The surrounding area was out of this world and the Hotel could not be in a better setting. All in all, one of the best hotels we have stayed at either in the UK, France or other. Nothing.
Excellent hosts and food & wine of a very good standard. A friendly and relaxed atmosphere
We could not have wished for a more friendly & accomodating welcome than the one we received from the Auberge owners David & Sylvia - they went out of their way to ensure we were happy with our room - the catering was first class which was confirmed by the many local french people who used the restaurant for dining out
Our host was very friendly and made use feel at home in Auberge Du Balestie. Rooms were basic but sufficient and also homly furnished. Surroundings are beautiful.
an excellent position in a beautiful historic small town - one buys merely a room - it is not an hotel in the sense of personal service no air conditioning
Mirepoix is a beautiful unspoiled historic town. The hotel is full of character and the themed rooms are just beautiful.
We chose to stay in La Maison Des Consuls because it is such a stunningly interesting old building in a small town that is full of history. The rooms were comfortable and bathrooms excellent
Interesting old building, well renovated. Upstairs room overlooking the square was hot and lacked air conditioning. There was loud noise from the square until late at night both the nights that we were there. Corridors and stairs did not appear to have been cleaned in some time.
Historic building filled with character, Mirepoix itself is a charming location Twin beds with rather squishy mattresses!
