“Superb!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We were taken with the welcome, the room(we upgraded to the one with a bath and a shower), the staff, the view, the pool area, the decor and most importantly the food. Excellent shy chef, Xavier, and really good host, David. We also enjoyed the area and took loads of pretty drives. Best breakfast so far on our holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for the movie theme one as its substantially larger than the regular rooms. The business below c...

This is our fourth visit over a number of years, to this absolutely delightful hotel. Situated in the unprepossessing town of Puylaurens, Cap de Castel is it's saving grace. Building wise the hotel is hugely attractive, with it's provencale style. The rooms are lovely, spacious and beautifully decorated. Our room Neuf, had been newly decorated and we liked the more modern style and colourings but were pleased to see that the Marilyn Monroe theme had been retained. Gorgeous views of over the countryside. There is a pool and terrace again with wonderful views. We were fortunate in being able to dine on the terrace each evening and together with the splendid food this makes for a delightful experience. David and Lise have a wonderful team of cooks and waiting staff and all this works to provide a very relaxed stay. We love this place, in fact, I think it is our favourite hotel! We will return, hopefully in 2015. Well done once again David and Lise.

It's very rare that you return to a hotel and find that it's just as good, if not better, than the time before. Well Cap de Castel is definitely one of those places. If you've never been, then I suggest you get booking; if you've been before then it's probably time to book again. Excellent boutique hotel and a fabulous owner / host.

Room Tip: The bed's are excellent so chose any room that suits your budget.

Dear David,

Thank you so much for this very kind review.
Given your hotelier background we value so much your feedback and complicity especially when facing bizarre situations. But your loyalty over the years is even more valuable to each of us.

This Sunday, with my Dad's help we just finished assembling the new outdoor furniture... and rescued the pool from nasty stones and pieces of tiles this time. Our neighbor and his brother say hello.

A bientôt.

It has been well over a year since my last stay and David gave the usual warm welcome
Sme of the rooms have been updated and mine was a black and white film themed room. Large room, old features retained and great views across to the Black Mountains
The restaurant is great and the standard of food is fabulous.
Breakfast simple but good quality.
High quality place with character

A beautifully restored old building that had, I think, formed part of the castle walls, we were told parts dated back to the 17th century. The bedroom was ample, the bed comfortable, the welcome warm and friendly.
The restaurant is excellent and the owner/maitre d' is very helpful (he also speaks good English, certainly better than my French!).
If passing there again then this hotel will definitely be on my list

Stayed for just a night, we found the room spacious, clean, well present and well equiped. The staff were friendly and helpful both in the hotel and restaurant. The food was tasty and well presented.

I found Puylaurens to be a tad boring and souless although that could have been due to the time of year.

Highly Recommended

We had no idea how exhausted we were when my husband and I checked in to Cap de Castel. By the time we had spent 5 days being well taken care of, we were totally relaxed, refreshed and probably heavier by at least 5 pounds each. Our room was extremely comfortable, the shower was something we would like to copy at home. Lise and David work very hard to ensure that everything is perfect and they absolutely succeed. The food was heavenly. Usually we ordered the nightly special. The service at the restaurant was friendly and most professional. We would like to highly recommend this hotel to anyone, but especially those who seek a place not on the beaten path. Their location makes an easy travel to various interesting places. The little town offers anything one would need and the view from the hotel and the town is not to be beat.
