This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel. We were impressed by the well-appointed and large room, though with a large bathroom it would have been great to have a bath rather than a shower. We had a meal one night and it was very good, particularly the duck hearts and the cassoulet (large portion). The wife suggested the cassoulet was a little underdone. OK, it smelt of pig, but I like eating pig. There was a good list of local wines at reasonable prices.
One negative, the breakfast at over 10 Euros each isn't worth it unless you like cake for breakfast, which I don't. For that price I would expect a good range of choices, but this being France there isn't a good range. The usual croissants etc plus a little bit of cheese and ham. I did get a fresh omelette one day, which was appreciated. I'm still waiting for the French to get over this sweet breakfast fixation and start providing bacon and egg - and sausage, black pudding, fried bread, mushrooms and beans.
Quillan itself is a lovely town in the Pyrenean foothills. A little run down and the castle is just a square block, but it is worth a visit. I think I'll become mayor, get a few million Euros from the Government and get it done up a bit.
