We gave up on the one-way system and road works in Carcassonne and as time was pressing-on headed on up to Castelnaudary. The Hoteldu Canal was "complet", but they kindly telephoned and booked us in here.
It's a small commercial hotel, a little worn (as many are) but spotlessly clean, with secure car parking on-site, a pleasant little bar, and a no-nonsense restaurant. We dined there and tumbled into a lovely large bed.
Rooms are well-proportioned, bathrooms with separate loo, plenty of storage.
Dinner was excellent, local sausages on Puy lentils, fresh trout perfectly cooked, crema catalana and cheese to die for.
Total bill including drinks and wine 103 euros for two. Would recommend for anyone who likes "real" France, where there's real pride in local cuisine and guests comfort.
