Reviewed 8 April 2013

Stayed for two nights before heading down to the south for our holiday and absolutely loved it. At the foot of the castle it's a short stroll to the hussle and bussle but it felt very quiet and the pool was perfect.

Everything inside the citte is expensive so make the most of the good breakfast as you'll pay through the nose for a drink once inside.

The family room wasn't huge but that's often the case it was fine for the time we stayed and I would recommend and certainly go again.

I book a villa of 4 rooms for a family of 8 and was everyone was very impressed by the villa. The hotel is the first hotel that you will see from the entrance, it's really that close (hotel montmorency is part of Hotel_du_Chateau) separated by a small road. Each of the bedrooms were spacious and had good views of the cite. Staff is friendly and is ready to help anytime!

Some minor issues I had is that there is only one bathroom area in the whole villa and the garden doors cannot be secured. However there is a door at the stairway on the 2nd floor which can be secured. There is also no other settings like a fridge, water boiler or any cups

Overall, a wonderful nice experience and will loved to stay there again!

This is a great option situated only a stone's thrown from one of the main entrances to the old medieval cite. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the room had everything that we needed although it was a little on the small side and could have done with a better shower. Breakfast was also excellent - served in the main sister hotel with good views over the cite as it got light.

We stayed here in October and absolutely loved it. The hotel is right outside of the main entrance to the medieval citte. An excellent place to be based. We loved the whole experience. Our room had a little deck off the back with seating and a table. Breakfast is served in the neighbouring hotel. The staff have two dogs who wander around the dining room, which we loved. On our last morning there was a performance of a sword fight right in front of the dining room. You can't go to Carcassonne without also walking down the hill to the canal and the city outside of the walls. Great shopping too!

This is my second time at this hotel and although the first time we stayed we were a little disappointed, we ( my partner and I ) decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. Since we were here the last time the hotel has been refurbished, the rooms are now slightly bigger and very modern, not quite sure if its in keeping with the theme of Carcassonne and the old cite but they are immaculate, quiet and have a really good strong wifi signal, which was important to us as we work when we travel. The location is what sells the hotel to us and we would stay there again without hesitation. We haven't had breakfast there so we can't comment but we did the last time and thought it was very expensive for what you get. The parking is very secure and to us is worth €10 a night, you can park around the Hotel area cheaper if you wish but it's not worth the hassle.

Stumble out of breakfast and into the old walled city - was perfect for us

Pool and spa was closed although it was October and cold so cant really complain.
Rooms are not massive and although renovated, they are only average, but the proximity to the sister Hotel du Chateau where you check in, have a bar and the restauirant are ideal

Would I go back - yes, really liked it

Downside - owners have 2 dogs , and at least 1 cat that lounge around the check in area, and the restaurant (if you let them) - personally I liked it, they were lovely and friendly and the dogs came over to me as I rubbed their heads etc, but my wife hated it (she thinks dogs should be kept out) . So take your pick on your own view

As we went out of season not much esle was open really around the area and It is a good 45 min walk into the main town, but possible. However, the restaurants in the old City are only 10-15mins away and all are open so there is no issue

Room Tip: Stay in the more expensive Hotel Du Chateau

We really enjoyed our time at Montmorency. Nicole greeted us warmly on arrival and we were recommended a great restaurant for dinner that night.
The location is wonderful, just a 1 minute walk to the entrance of the walled city. It's a really joy to walk the city at night after the crowds have gone home and have just a short stroll back to the Montmorency.
The room was also spacious and comfortable and breakfast room was delightful.
