Reminded me of my first visits to France in the early Seventies,you were not sure if you were really welcome! Notice on the minibar stated that any food left in there(other than personal medication)would be binned. Parking squeezed into the back yard was difficult and expensive. Very sombre atmosphere,as stated , very old fashioned.

Dear Client, We are sorry to hear that you did not appreciate the atmosphere of this former convent with its 'old fashion' decoration and the small parking in our yard. We agree, it is different ..we are in a protected historical building of the 16th century, in the city center. Atmosphere and decoration are different from new modern buildings. But...

We only spent a night here but were pleasantly surprised by the service and staff. Unfortunately there was no elevator to help us with our luggage. The room was clean and pleasant, and we had a great night's sleep. The location was convenient, adjacent to the main square. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We would loved to stay...

First trip away with baby, couldn't have gone any better thanks to the exceptional service at hotel. Reception staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. We had a lovely relaxing stay. Comfortable air con room. Clean and sturdy cot bed. Best service we've experienced in a long time. The hotel restaurant is also amazing.

We arrived in Limoux without a reservation and were told about this hotel at the wine shop in the Square. The hostess was extremely gracious and helpful. The room was spacious, comfortable, and quiet. Wanting to enjoy the area's Cremant and Blanquette, we settled in for two nights - providing an easy drive to Carcasonne. While in the area, check...

We stayed in a family room (no. 10) which was very nice indeed. The small room for kids was cosy and the large room was comfortable. The bed area and sitting area could be divided by a curtain, if necessary. The bathroom was large and well-equipped. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The room was at the back of the hotel...

The hotel is generally well-kept and clean, but the fixtures and fittings in the room and bathroom are very dated. When we came down for breakfast we were the only people there and eventually a cleaner alerted staff that we might want some coffee to accompany the rather tired-looking pastries nearby. It wasn't late (8.30 am). We experienced this rigmarole...

We arrived on bicycles without a reservation and the host was incredibly kind to us. We had a very nice room with the best air conditioner--extremely quiet. We slept so soundly here. Very nice breakfast in the morning. The building is beautiful and has a peaceful court yard with a fountain. We felt very lucky to stay here.

We stayed for one night in June and it was lovely. New owners are friendly and welcoming. We stayed in room 11 on the second floor (no lift) which was really large with a comfortable king bed.

Ideally situated near the central square and its restaurants, Modern and Pigeon offers clean comfortable accomodation. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and speak good English. No problems experienced, and would probably stay again

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1501, the house was initially a convent, and then the private residence of the Souvigny family, relatives of the Countess du Barry , before finally becoming a noted hotel of its time at the end of the 19th century . Frescoes from the 17th century, a preserved stained glass panel and a remarkable stair case, remain the highlights of the building. Today the hotel offers 14 rooms and suites, complete with TV, free Wifi, mini bar, air conditioning and marble bathrooms. To discover also our Gourmet Restaurant Tantine et Tonton with service on the patio, weather and season permitting. ... more   less
