We just spent two days out of a planned 3 day stay at this revolting hotel. It is nothing as shown online and is extremely dated. Our room had 3 spiders in two days, all of which were still on the wall from being squashed despite the room being 'cleaned'. Our sheets were full of little black bugs and were...

Stayed here with 2 friends on a stop over from a hiking trip in the Pyrenees. Staff were fantastic - very friendly and helpful. They happily stored bags for us for 5 days while we were hiking. Rooms were slightly old fashioned, but that didn't bother us at all (I have seen some people's reviews highlight this as a huge...

If you are interested in caring and excellent service this is the place to be. They treat you like family.

The situation of the hotel is perfect. But, this is really not a 3 stars. Maybe 1 star. Dirty old rooms (we've changed our room after 1 day). So poor breakfast, and you can't choose your place in the restaurant (you're assigned to a table -we changed it every morning, because we received a small table against the wall- and...

Basic but very adequate hotel. Ideally situated for shops and grotto. Staff very accomodating and helpful. Breakfast was very nice continental style. Nice bar area to sit and have a drink. Rooms were cleaned daily and looked after. The hotel is very dated but thats what makes it appealing and they have kept all original features and maintained the character...

I recently stayed here for a week with a small group I was leading! The location couldn't have been better! We all loved the incredible basilica views! The staff treated us like family - Nicholas and Karine couldn't have been nicer or more helpful! Dinner each evening there was a delicious feast! Everyone in my group wants to come back!...

When we go to Lourdes we don't often look for luxury as it isn't the most relaxing holiday, but we don't like to rough it either! It was very misleading as the photographs online made it look fantastic and new, but when we got there it was totally run down. There were cobwebs and dust everywhere, along with an old...
