    The courtyard was attractive,especially at night when lit up.

    Location wasn't brilliant as Couiza is a smallish place.Bedroom lacked a mirror and chest of drawers.Bathroom lacked ventilation which gave rise to a musty smell.Had one meal in the restaurant - it was nicely laid out and the staff were attentive but did not enjoy the food and thought the meal was expensive.

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Grand public areas

    Very small rooms and quite ordinary. No enclosed public rooms open during the day so if wet no where to sit and relax. No comfort chairs in bedrooms.

  • Older travelers

    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.

  • Group of friends

    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.

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    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,

    Lovely setting and atmosphere. Friendly staff.

    Very warm at night, as there's no air-con.

  • Older travelers

    Beautiful Hotel, Fantastic food, friendly staff.

    Expensive,I think they should include breakfast in the price. No aircon in bedroom, access to upper floors difficult if you are the least bit disabled ( curving worn stone staircase which looks great but could be lethal.

  • Older travelers

    The location for visiting Rennes le Chateau. The cuisine and our room. All were excellent = highly recommended! Thank you for a pleasant stay.

    We did not take breakfast however as we thought it highly overpriced!

  • Older travelers

    Location for our travel plans; castle is delightful; restaurant was excellent,

    Climbing 59 steps to our room, with luggage and no offer of assistance.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Beautiful building and friendly staff.

    The long long staircase going up to the room in the tower lugging heavy bags and nobody offered to help with them. The bathroom extractor fan didn't work so room got very steamy after shower. Also, through no fault of the hotel, there was no airconditioning but you would have thought that the castle walls would have kept some of the heat out but instead acted as a kind of radiator resulting in a very bad and sweaty nights sleep.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    The hotel is situated in a town and not in a park.The hotel staff was business like and not really caring. No help was provided for taking care of our bags and nobody took us to our room. The room was very small and extremely hot since there was no air conditioning despite the extreme summer heat. I barely slept. Considering the number of people using the pool, it was too small. Furthermore, not enough lounge chairs were available for every one. The breakfast was ok but I was not able to get a decent cup of tea since only tepid water was provided. I asked for some hot water but only got tepid water again. The gastronomic restaurant is good but really overpriced. I asked for a carafe of water, only got it at the end of my meal and it was warm. I had the feeling that if I had order some mineral water , I would have got it faster. Overall an overpriced stay for the service and amenities provided: a tourist trap.

    Lovely position with river. Excellent restaurant and breakfast .

    Very small room with no aircon or minibar which you might expect for the price we paid. Very difficult staircase to negotiate with cases.No pool towels.Poor value for money therefore. Not impressed.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Very atmospheric, beds very comfortable

    Very disappointed with my meal, especially the choice of saumon mariné avec fenouil avec un crumble d'onion roux, which turned outto be smoked salmon from a packet with chopped chives and a soft cheese.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    To stay in an old, charming castle in a peaceful location was very nice. The dinners were excellent.

    The breakfast: Norwegians will normally prefer a better selectection of whole grain bread and rolls.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    This is a beautiful historic building with the most kind and wonderful owners.

    There is nothing to dislike about this beautifully restored chateau.
