“We got a great deal”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We have just returned from this lovely hotel, we used a Fleetwood Travel deal £400 each for flights to Carcassonne, car hire including all insurance, three nights at Le Domaine d'Auriac and one meal in their Michelline starred restaurant. I would highly recommend this deal it was brilliant value for money.

First the flights Ryannair with onboard one bag max weight 10kg so very limited liquids allowed. Carcassonne airport has no facilities 2 ladies & 2 gents toilets and some very expensive vending machines is all once you go through passport control so don't go too early.

Car Hire fantastic and easy got a peugeot 208 with on board sat nav. Made life really easy.

Hotel is stuffed with random stuff but comfortable. The first room they offered us had a wardrobe with about a foot of space between the coat hanger and expresso coffee machine which was on the fridge so was unusable. There was nowhere for us to put our stuff so I complained, at first they asked me to pay more money but I refused as I believe all hotels should have some hanging space/drawers. Eventually, they gave us another room which was large, comfortable and what we should have got originally. Everything supplied as would be expected in lovely big bathroom but no body lotion or hair conditioner. That caught me out as I had not brought anything like that with me.so had to buy it. A sign in the room said the nightly charge was 365 Euros! There is a swimming pool and golf course

Restaurant was really fabulous and our included meal was brilliant. We ate there again on our last night and the bill when we left the hotel was £360.00 as everything there was so very expensive. Breakfast was delicious.

I would only stay here if I got a really good deal.

Marie-Helene absolutely the best. Nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful hotel and rooms, wonderful location, wonderful service – 5*. Lots of help with tours, activities and transfers. Always a wonderful service and always with a smile. An excellent Relais et Chateaux hotel - does the group proud. Would definitely visit again!

Her husband, Philippe’s, bar and restaurant in La Cite does a mean cocktail! We didn’t stay but clearly a great place to party!

A hidden gem. Idyllic setting. From arrival to departure Madame and staff make your stay special . Professional and friendly at all times. Truly memorable restaurant. Quaint accommodation. Peaceful inside and out.
Not golfers so cannot comment on course or bistro.
But cannot praise everything else highly enough.

Wonderful location. Short drive to the lovely Cité de Carcassone. The staff did everything to make our stay comfortable. Very good restaurant; had a memorable dinner. The price is steep but the food deserves it. Breakfast is a little expensive and not as good as expected. We wanted a Continental breakfast but had no option but to take the Euro 24 menu per passenger, which included other things. Played golf in the adjacent links. Fun course with many slopes and variations. Greens and fairways in very good condition. There has been excessive tree planting (unnecessary for the strategy of play), presumably by a landscaper, not a golf architect. One very bad note is that we finished playing at 2:15 PM and couldn't have anything to eat at the course bar. We asked for a sandwich and they told us the "kitchen was closed."

Le Domaine D'Auriac is an excellent family run hotel. They make the extra effort to ensure that you have a good stay. I was a little sceptical about the in-house gastronomic restaurant but once I tried it, I realised that it offered a very high standard and can definitely be recommended. We were fortunate to have good weather and it was a pleasure to take the Domaine breakfast on the terrace.

The hotel is peaceful and quaint with modern furnishings in the rooms. The food was absolutely wonderful and if you don't stay here, at least come for dinner because it was multiple courses and delicious! The staff was friendly and helpful, going out of there way to make us happy. Overall stay here! You won't be disappointed!

This is one of the best if not THE best Relais & Chateaux we've visited. We were there in mid April of this year and the weather was beautiful, especially after the snow in Paris!

From the moment we pulled into the car park to the genuinely gracious farewell there was not one single misstep in accomodations, service, friendliness or anything for that matter. It was as if these people actually loved their jobs.

I can hardly add to what the other reviews said about the property itself; it is truly a beautiful park like atmosphere. Afternoon tea or coffee in the lounge, then to another lounge for pre dinner drinks....so elegant yet not at all stuffy.

And the food. Fabulous. They serve the absolute best cassoulet on the planet. The recipe came from the owner's grandfather and I would make a special trip down there for this dish alone. I've had a lot of cassoulet and none can hold a candle to this one.

Breakfast was included and huge. They even had scrambled eggs. Put this one on your list if you want to be out of the tourist mobs. It is truly special.
