I realised how good this hotel was when we stayed at the next hotel. When we arrived the owner carried our bags to our room which was cool clean and had everything you could want including slippers and bath robes. Large and airy. Swimming pool was great , in a lovely garden where the meals were also served.
We had trout which was delicious. Breakfasts not exceptional but more than adequate.
I mistook the location and so to stay here added an hour to the length of our trip. It was well worth it. Divert and stay here if you want good service, good room and a GOOD hotel.

Enjoyed a friendly welcome from the receptionist, who ended up doing everything except cook!
Our room was a superior double which cost €85, only €10 more than standard and had a view of the mountains. It had a nice large bed, although the pillows were a bit dissappointing. The room was roomy enough with a small fridge and coffee making facilities. TV is only a small screen.
Bathroom is clean and modern with many toiletries provided, as well as bathrobes and slippers.
The room is on first floor and there is no lift. The hotel is in a quiet location surrounded by fields so no street noise.
We had dinner in the restuarant as there is little choice nearby. The menu is quite limited with no chicken dishes on offer. The set menus are also not available thru the week. However the prices are reasonable.
Breakfast cost €8 each and was quite a poor selection.The only cereals on offer are chocolate flavours suitable for kids, a few cheeses and bread and pain chocolat. Not great for the price but nowhere else closeby.
The hotel was quiet the night we stayed but I think it could be a little noisey in some rooms on busy nights.
There is a small pool and plenty of on site parking. There is also good free wifi.

We stayed three nights at Le Castrum as part of a ten day trip through the Languedoc Rousillon. The setting was charming and our room afforded us a great view of the mountains through the huge bay window. The owners did everything they could to make our visit as pleasant as possible. We were most impressed by the attention to detail to make guests feel at home. Too bad that Karina and Jerome's powers did not extend to being able to change the weather that was rainy and glum for two of the days we were there.

We arrived at Hotel le Castrum at 10:20 p.m., having driven several hours on backroads from Oloron-Sainte-Marie (south of Pau) with a visit at Lourdes. We arrived in Villeneuve at 9:50 p.m., but it took us over 30 minutes to find the hotel as we had to drive up a poorly marked and dark side street. Upon arrival at 10:30 (reasonable from a traveler's point of view, especially with a reservation and confirmation), the hotel lobby was locked and dark. We were on a 36 day trip (planned thru TA reviews) and had not run into any problems until this point. All other hotels we stayed at had a person working at the lobby desk; if not staffed, they had a notice posted on who to see nearby or how to access the keypad that would let you into the hotel; there was no such sign and no such keypad for entry. Tired and dumbfounded, I walked around the hotel to find out what was going on as we had the room booked for 3 nights. I went up the only steps to the back of the hotel expecting to find a manager or someone who would let us in and a spotlight went on. I walked into the only open door and politely asked for help and a woman jumped up off a couch and started screeching at me, "What are you doing here? I called you on the phone!!! screech screech screech." I explained I had no phone with me in Europe, but she just kept screaming. I left in shock and we drove to McDonald's where a kind worker told us we would be able to find lodging nearby in Foix. We drove to a little hotel in Foix and walked in and the woman at the Hotel Lons desk pleasantly showed us to a room, even though by now it was 11:40. We returned the next day to try to get in our room at Le Castrum as we had booked it for 3 days; the woman again ranted and raved and now accused of us littering in her parking lot; needless to say, she refused us access. The fine print said we had to be in the hotel by 9:00 p.m., which we obviously did not see on the booking.com printout. We ended up going to the nearby police station to make sure she would not charge us for 3 nights. So we only got ripped off one night! If you think you may show up after 9 p.m., or even if you can get there early, I would stay in nearby Foix instead, a charming town with little shops and people who enjoy making sure the customer is satisfied and will make a return visit! This was our ONLY bad event in 36 days, so I still have faith in TA. Lesson learned: I'll never book a hotel again that only has 5 reviews! The lobby looked clean, so that is the only thing I could rate above terrible.

We arrived here after a long journey in the rain and were welcomed by the friendly owner. I don't recognise the description by previous reviewers. The facilities were excellent with lots of nice touches like good toiletries. The breakfast was very good with fresh fruit, something we missed in many places we stayed in France. The owner also helped us with finding a restaurant on a Sunday night.
We didn't get an opportunity to use the pool or the garden because of the rain

A one night stay after having toured the Cather region and before driving to Spain. A delightful hotel, quite simple but comfortable and very well appointed with pool and attractive gardens. The proprietress couldn’t be more helpful.
No evening meal but there are a number of restaurants nearby which the hotel will book.
Thoroughly recommended!

Everything works here, in part because of the wonderful pool (which could open earlier), the sense of pride on the owner's part (everything is done by the owner), the great setting rich with history, AND the traditional breakfast (perfect). Every need attended to with happy alacrity. Air conditioned, very comfortable, would return gladly.

This is a nicely designed hotel in a beautiful setting. Located a little off the road, you drive past a corn field on one side and a lawn on the other. In back of the hotel there is a pool set in a huge lawn of grass bordered by the woods. There is a gazebo with a view of the mountains. The rooms are spacious and well designed, ours had a little patio out the glass door with chairs and a table. It is so quiet. The eating area is large and well designed, breakfast at 10 Euros is decent to slightly better than average.

It is in a great location for Cathar Country, 30 minutes to Foix, a pretty town with great castle, 30 minutes to the charming medieval town of Mirepoix, 30 minutes to the castle at Puivert, 15 minutes to the dramatic and historic Montsegur Castle and picturesque town of Montsegur, and 15 minutes to the equally dramatic Roquefixade Castle. Lavelanet is not historic, but is only 5 minutes drive away with several good boulangeries, restaurants, a good market, and several supermarkets. When we first arrived we thought that we would be bored, but 3 nights and 3 days was barely enough to see most of the sights without returning to any place twice. The owners, who designed the hotel are friendly and helpful. Rooms cost a little more than 100
Euros, but I considered the money well spent. The only downside was that wifi was intermittent in one of the rooms.

The hotel deserves its high ratings. We were really pleased we booked here. Spaces are beautiful and well-maintained, owner speaks good English and is extremely attentive, lending us an extra umbrella for a rainy day, even! Rooms look better than the pictures, bright and sunny, everything was spotlessly clean, ground floor rooms have patios with table and chairs. We found this location to be ideal for exploring castles in Foix, Mont Segur, Roquefixade and Puivert during the day.

We stayed here 3 nights in two rooms on the ground floor and would have happily stayed a week. One has a handicap bathroom with shower chair, the other has a great soaking tub (rare). No stairs was perfect for my mom who uses a cane.

The surrounding area is lively and interesting and there's much more than we thought in under an hour's drive. At least in the summer, we were pleased to find there are markets, free concerts, occitan singing almost every day. (Mirepoix is another charming town (albeit without a castle)). As we travelled further east, we realized how special this area and the village in it are -- nearly all of the villages are cute and historic.

Breakfast was solid with meat and cheese options, but for 10 Euro, and in france, hard to resist getting your own at a boulangerie ;)

Wifi reliable in one room, a bit less so in the room further from the front desk.

We was a group of 7 bikers from Paris to Barcelona. Stayed at this hotel for one night. Excellent service and with a smile, top class food. A dazzling view, from the windows a magnificent view to the pyrenees. So close to the mountains and Spain, a perfect stay.The room, toilet, shower all in fine order . You really felt that this small family hotel, was taking care of their customers.
I will certainly return with my wife. .
