    Nice old hotel in the heart of the town

    We had originally booked an inner courtyard view room thinking it would be OK for one night but soon realised that was a mistake as for 2 people with all of our motorcycle gear it was cramped and claustrophobic - our host kindly upgraded us to a better room, giving us a choice at different rates - we had to pay more than we had originally planned, but not much, and it was definitely worth the extra.

    Really friendly and helpful host who went out of her way to make sure we were happy. Free garage parking provided for our motorcycle (motorcyclists & cyclists are made particularly welcome), nice location overlooking a small square ringed with bars, restaurants etc. The building is old and typically quirky French. Can't comment on the breakfast as we chose to walk to a cafe by the local market.

    Being an old building, noise carried from the halls into the room, nothing too bad, just people walking and talking, doors slamming etc. There was no noise from outside though so that was good!

    The hotel was centrally located and the staff was helpful. There was plenty of choice for the breakfast, including cereal, pastries, bread, yoghurts and juices. Plenty of free public parking right outside the hotel.

    Nothing.

    Located in centre of this beautiful town. Large public car park at the rear and has an entrance off the car park as well as the main entrance from the main square at the front. The rooms are basic but entirely adaquate for our needs and were very clean. This is a good hotel for travellers in this beautiful mountain ous area.

    Absolutely nothing!

    Our fourth visit to Barcalonette and our second to this hotel. Situated right in the centre of the town, approached from the back near the border Post Office car park. Parking for three or four bikes immediately outside the back entrance but there is also a closed garage available at €8 for cars, free for bikes and motorcycles. You can't book in until after 4pm, but there are plenty of bars to spend time in if your early. The new patrons, Jo and Renaud are charming, very helpful, friendly and accommodating, even helped us in with our bags. Best rooms are 15 & 16, facing out over the front, just above the balcony. Since taking over they have done a lot of refurbishment and yet kept the lovely, quaint, old world feel. Free wifi, with good, quick connection. Plenty of hot water and towels and Flatscreen tv's. Comfy sitting area with bar, available from 4ish til 9ish. Fabulous hot chocolate! Hotel secured when staff arn't there with code key access. Breakfast €8 extra. Cereals, croissants, bread, tea etc all served with a smile! Only negative is beds are a little small, but this will not stop us from visiting again later this year. Can't wait. Very highly recommend 👍👍👍

    As the hotel is located right at the centre of town, it might be noisy during night due to the restaurants and bars all around. We were there by the end of September which is a bit out of season, so did not hear so much of outside noise. But it could be a problem in the high season for those who seek silence at night.

    The owner of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. A closed garage was provided for our motorcycle at a place very close to the hotel. The bed was comfortable and the room had the things people would need while on an outdoors sports holiday. It is located right at the centre of the town yet it is easy to access. It is very close to all restaurants. There are beautiful photos of Tour de France on their walls backing as far as early 1900s. The breakfast was nice with adequate choices.

    A larger bed would be nice (or maybe I should try the diet again!)

    Easy to find. Right in the centre of the town. Approached from the back it is a little off putting but persevere. A real bit of old France. With garage parking for motorbikes and a cheerful welcome from our English speaking hosts, what could be better. This small hotel harks back to garner times. No, it isn't luxury with flunkies and white table cloths, but it is honest, friendly, clean, spacious and comfortable. The wifi connection was brilliant, better than in some of the flashier hotels we have used. We didn't eat in the hotel but certainly didn't hear any complaints. A really lovely base to explore this quaint old town
