After a cycling trip from Villefranche de Lauragais of which the first part was cold and with constant rain and the second part a strong head wind we arrived early (after shortcutting the trip).
Nevertheless reception was very friendly and our cycles - quite ditry and still wet - could be stored in a room next to the reception (passing trhough the reception hall).
We were lucky to have a room with a large terras including a line to dry our wet capes and cloths. We felt lucky after a tough day.
That same evening, the local Rotary had its dinner, using the whole restaurant area. We were left the choise, eat outside or go for what they named 'a limited emergency menu'. Tired as we were we opted for the second. Boy, if this is was a limited emergency menu, what is their normal standard? It was delicious.
Breakfast was plenty, all a pair of cyclists need for yet another cold trip.
With Pamiers, a province town dotted with remnants of old buildings and towers, center at walking distance this hotel is great value for money.
Once again I selected this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed in what I got.
