Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed for one night on our bike trip throughout Canal du Midi. Big rooms, good beds, nice staff. The restaurant is supposed to be good, even though we did not try it. When we arrived the streets were fairly empty, but during the night it was very noisy outside with fast cars and motorcycles containing screaming young men, followed by police cars with the sirens on. Luckily we were all very tired after our bike ride....

Charming from the outside, and offering off-street parking, this place LOOKS inviting. But our room was so shoddy and charmless, with no places to put your toilet kit in the bathroom (one plus is that there was an actual tub in there), no hooks to hang a towel or a jacket. I could hardly wait to get out of there. There was nothing historic or antique or cute in the room, so don't think that I simply cannot appreciate antiques or shabby chic. This place looked like a movie set for a fleabag American hotel located on Skid Row. Laminated fake wood, a chair that was one tap away from falling to pieces, worn out towels, sad 1960's ceramic tiles. It's in a fairly good location in town (near the SPAR supermarket, up at the top of the beautiful boulevard that google maps calls the D624 (I'm sure there's a nice French name for the street). Within walking distance is the Canal du Midi (can't see it or the lake or cathedral from hotel) and, uphill, the summit of the town where you will find a very old windmill and amazing views of the countryside to the north. The restaurant was touted as having the best cassoulet in France, and, while I admit it was a good-sized serving, it is just a very buttery pork and beans. Breakfast was fairly usual for France... fresh bread, jam, coffee, cheese. Front desk people remarkably patient with my crappy French skills. Just a tired old hotel.

One of the oldest hotel and restaurant in town. Famous for its cassoulet. Rooms are clean and properly decorated. They are air conditioned, which is a great plus in that region. Restaurant is probably the best quality over price in town. Don't forget to buy a can of home-made cassoulet and its cooking dish as a souvenir.

We arrived in Castlenaudry at about 7pm on a Thursday in October and had hoped to find a Chambre d'hote, but had really arrived too late, so we found this hotel after going to one which was full. We were just pleased to be able to get a bed for the night. The lady on reception was very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, but very dated and tired and we could not get the shower over the bath to run very hot. However it was quiet and the bed was comfortable so we got a good nights sleep. For an extra 5 euros we were also able to park the car in the hotel garage which was good. Breakfast was a bit lacklustre, but it was good to be able to have a cup of tea. There was a bit of French bread (not the best and we normally adore French bread), some mini croissants, a bit of yoghurt and cake. It was enough though, plus the overall cost of the stay was not too high, although we stayed in some lovely other places which cost less. As I say though it was clean and we needed a bed at short notice so really no reason to complain. It did what we needed.

I really wanted to like this hotel as i try to favour independent hotels over soulless chain motels, but the hotel is dirty, our room smells, the air con only works intermittently, there is no lift and the staff are completely indifferent to the hotel guests. the free wifi is not secure and service limited. The hotel's main business is the restaurant the rooms are old and neglected. If you do have to stay here don't use the hotel's car park you can get blocked in for hours and the manager does not give a dam if you are English -you can do a lot better for the price.,

The Hotel has a garage, which is a real plus when traveling with lots of luggage on board. It is easily found and has a great restaurant specialising in the local dish 'cassoulet.' The rooms are basic but clean and servicable - don't come her to experience luxury (or air-con) but do visit for friendly welcomeing staff and gret local cuisine. TIP don't buy bottled wine, opt for a pichet of the local red. At 6.50 euros it's perfect to cut the richness of the duck (cooked three ways) or the cassoulet.Happy days.

the rooms are a bit dated, but its a very friendly little hotel in the centre of town bed was comfy and the room warm. its not some plastic chain hotel and its not perfect but it is full of character and has a charm lacking in more modern hotels . we had a room front of hotel with nice modern shower. the main reason for being here is the food , very large portions of top quality home made food. if its good enough for rick stein its good enough for me

Having just given two really good reviews for Logis hotels in other regions, I reckon that Logis have a problem in securing 'standards' across the hotels that are part of the Logis network. I could endure the small, plain, worn out room, but hotels are to sleep in. The pillows were small and mean and the pillowcases were at least 4" too long for them. Luckily we had a pair of pillows in the car as we were heading for a gite the next day and after tossing and turning until the early hours we brought our own pillows in and managed to snatch some hours of sleep. It was a Sunday night, so the restaurant was not open, perhaps we were lucky. We had breakfast - coffee and bread and a croissant (obviously ordered in for the very few guests and doled out!). Parking in their barn of a garage cost another €6. We booked in a hurry as other hotels (one I had stayed in before) were either full or closed. Castelnaudary on a Sunday night in October is a dismal place to be. I am writing a separate review on where we ate that night as it was a life-saver! My lesson? Take time and trouble and don't book just anything - move on to another place if necessary!

Stayed for one night in a dated bedroom with a bathroom and toilet installed pre Second World War. No hair dryer, the bath(there was no shower curtain) was worn and marked and the plug when fitted let almost as much water out as flowed in. Lots of hot water though and soft toilet tissue. Very small tv and wifi seemed very complicated to access. The breakfast was good, the cafe and restaurant seemed very nice but is closed on a Sunday evening and so cannot comment on it. The room was only 52 euros but needs complete makeover.

We stayed at the Hotel de France as the Ibis budget was fully booked. Very easy to find, with secure parking attached. The room, as the rest of the hotel, looked a little tired but was clean and functional. The shower is 'over bath' and lacks a shower curtain or the chance to change its height resulting in water everywhere and an achy neck! No hair dryer but its the summer so thats okay. The food in the restaurant was lovely. Really very good for 24 euros each. Breakfast was however a disappointment. only seven euros but very limited choice and only a grumpy lady there to help! She did later give us our parking free and let us leave the car in the secure parking after our official check out. We would stay again knowing these faults. Could also do with aircon in the rooms maybe.
