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.

We stayed one night at the end of a canal trip from Homps as it was conveniently located. There was a friendly receptionist that spoke English, though we could have done without him sneezing all over us. The room was clean but spartan and the bath was good to have after a week on the boat. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't make any comment. It's a shame there was no bar. Adequate parking.

We stayed a night here while biking the Canal Du Midi. We had a room over looking the canal that had been renovated. The room was spacious with a nice bathroom. The bed was like sleeping on a brick! However, there was some effort to modernize, as there were usb charging outlets, electric blinds and AC which struggled to cool the room down but at least it was there. The breakfast was very basic, mainly continental. For those with cars, there was heaps of free parking.

The hotel is dingy and run down. In the middle of the night the bed collapsed as the wooden slats of the base were not secured. We had to put the mattress on the floor. We were accused of breaking the bed. No apology from the person running the hotel. He was exceedingly rude and unhelpful. There were however 2 women employees who were helpful. The facilities were basic. Very poor value for money

We booked this hotel not knowing how basic it was. The room was spacious enough and clean, but lacked any frills. The staff were pleasant, the breakfast was good and the hotel is on the Midi Canal, just a short walk from the sleepy town of Castelnaudary, which has a number of variously-priced restaurants.

We where to stop at the Hotel du canal for 2nights before going to le boat to collect our boat for a week . On arrival I could not believe my eyes it looked so run down after staying at a lot of Chateaux through France that where beautiful . We went to reception thinking it could get better , the man on the desk first said we where not booked in he was very rude . Eventually He found our booking so I asked for the key to be able to see the room first . Went up the very dirty steps unlock a heavy metal door like a prison door. The room was so basic I have seen better in a youth hostel. Needless to say we did not stay but he took the money from our account through booking.com. Do not stay at this hotel.

Ideally located walking distance from the gare as well as a number of excellent restaurants and right by the canal du midi this hotel has a certain charm. To be fair, the interior is a little tired and the rooms basic but they do everything you need and the place is very clean throughout. Nice breakfast room and a lovely bar area next to the canal, a lovely spot for an evening drink or two. The reception staff all handle English if necessary and were very polite, welcoming and keen to assist. Well recommended.

This is a very good value basic hotel for those looking for a comfortable, clean, quiet and pleasant place to stay. Nothing fancy, but all that is required, including ceiling fans in the bedrooms which were greatly appreciated in the hot weather. It is centrally located with a nice little outdoor area. Breakfast is offered at an additional cost and it looked good, but we didn't have it so I can't comment.

We stayed at Hotel du Canal due to its proximity to the Le Boat base in Castelnaudry. While its staff was friendly and helpful and their breakfast delicious, the rooms need work. We found mold on the ceiling of the bath, poorly working AC and a loose toilet flush button. Adequate for one night but nothing longer.

We stayed in this hotel as part of our cycling tour of the Canal du Midi. A great location - close to canal and city centre - and excellent accommodation. Friendly, professional staff. Great breakfast.

Lovely staff and very nice continental breakfast, but oh dear the rooms are tired, in fact the whole hotel from the outside and inside is in desperate need of a make over. The air conditioning didn't work, the remote control had no back to it. The bathroom needs a serious revamp and the beds resembled a youth hostel in the 1970's. Will not stay here again!
