One of our favourite hotels in Carcassonne, Hôtel du Château has succeeded in perfectly combining the feel of a family-run establishment with excellent service and its superb location makes it an ideal base for a wine tasting city break. Guests can relax by the pool, enjoy some local wine at the 24 hour bar or simply admire the breath-taking views of the UNESCO walled city.
The hotel benefits from an extremely advantageous location, at the foot of the majestic entrance to the medieval walled city. For those arriving by car the hotel has a secure private car park which costs a reasonable 10 Euros per night. All of the city’s attractions, restaurants, shops and bars are within easy walking distance of the hotel.
As well as offering a superb level of service, Hôtel du Château also boasts an impressive variety of facilities for its guests. A table service breakfast is served in the conservatory overlooking the medieval city walls and a well-stocked bar with beautiful views is open 24/7. The hotel’s brand new spa is reserved for patrons on a completely private basis and an outdoor pool with a Jacuzzi and sun loungers can also be enjoyed in warm weather.
The hotel’s 17 rooms are split into several categories of varying sizes and decor. Grape Escapes guests are accommodated in Classic or Superior rooms in the main building. The Classic rooms are cosy and decorated in warm, welcoming tones and some of the larger Superior rooms have quirky clear windows (with blinds) rather than walls between the bedrooms and their bathrooms for a sense of openness and space. Each room is decorated in a classic French style with modern comforts such as a flat-screen TV, a music system and air-conditioning.
