Absolutely agree with the reviewer who described the hotel as soulless. The good things: location, 5 mins walk from the centre, plenty of parking, spotlessly clean, decent breakfast, reasonable price, The beds were comfortable and it has what you need for a night or two but the rooms are as stark as they appear on the website. There is no one on reception and one has the feeling that the restaurant is what's important. Reporting to the barman that the basin tap wasn't working properly had no effect. We didn't eat in the restaurant.

We had room 18, on the ground floor of the adjoining annexe, with a wet room apparently designed for disabled people. I suspect a disabled person would find it as inconvenient as we did. There's nowhere to put anything, the automatic basin tap is annoying, the shower makes the whole floor wet and slippery. The room overlooks parked vehicles on the road and has poor storage. I suggest avoid room 18 and request a room on an upper floor, possibly in the main building.

A little more formal dining style. Good service, extensive menu and well cooked and well presented food. Very busy but courses served at reasonably spaced intervals. Seemed quite popular with families. We arrived with no reservation but were shown to a table immediately.

Stayed a couple of nights here, too tired by the end of the day to venture out. Pleasant comfortable room, friendly staff, good wine list with many affordable bottles. Usual prix fixe menus and about a dozen of each of fish and meat specials. Just had a main course each on both nights, all well cooked and tasty but not greatly different to what a good home chef could produce. No problems with anything we ate, just not very exciting, sorry.

I'm focusing on restaurants which provide value for money lunches in and around Mirepoix. Les Minotiers restaurant has a classy feel about it with lots of space and a very relaxed atmosphere. The Maitre'D was very helpful in explaining the menu du jour which we always opt for as a baseline for comparing the budget lunch options at local restaurants. There was no choice but what we had was very pleasant. For starters we had ham stuffed with celeriac in a creamy sauce. Main course "choux farcie" ie. cooked cabbage stuffed with very tasty slightly spicy minced pork. Desert was a lemon tart topped with meringue. We had a carafe of the house red and finished with coffees and the bill for three came to 41€.

A great restaurant with a brilliant lunchtime deal on the "menu du jour". A great, very funny and hospitable Maitre'D and all his staff, and behind the scenes the chefs in the kitchen really know their stuff.

There is nothing not to like about the setting, the hospitality, the food, the ambiance and the price. If only we had places like this in England. Well done to all the team at Les Minotiers.
