We stayed in this hotel in July for three nights. You couldn't ask for a better location, right outside the main entrance of the old city and only 10 minutes in a taxi from Carcassonne airport (12euro)
Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Just a couple of small qualms. The hotel doesn't serve food except for at breakfast time so if you're a traveller who likes to have an occasional quiet night without leaving the hotel for dinner, this wouldn't be for you.
There was alot of dust under the table and the sinks in the bathroom, not trying to nit pick but they were both places that could easily be cleaned. There's a window from the bathroom into the bedroom, this is shown on the hotels own gallery. It doesn't offer much privacy but the toilet and shower cannot be seen as they're in a seperate alcove and there is also a blind that can be rolled down.
The hotels exterior is very well kept and maintained and there is a gorgeous seating area outside for drinks in the evening or for breakfast in the morning. The hotel also has a pool and a mini jacuzzi and have pool towels in the rooms for you to use.
A shuttle bus is offered (in high season) from the old city to the lower town but the hotel is within walking distance (approx 20 mins) and there are loads of pharmacies and convenience shops. We would suggest that you buy any snacks or drinks you are packing with you for the day in these shops as they offer value for money in comparison to shops in the old city (500ml water in the old city 2-3euro. 2litre bot in lower town 80c) Clothes shops, antique shops etc were closed for periods in the middle of the day so it would probably be better to go early in the morning or in the evening time.
We really enjoyed our stay in Hotel du Chateau and would recommend it to travellers.
