This is an old 19th century family run hotel which has seen better days. The public areas are good but the rooms are small and not very comfortable. Not sure how it justifies its five-star rating! The hotel overlooks the main town and the commercialised madness below. However it is only a few minutes walk to the basilica etc. There... More

We take a vacation in south-west France. We stayed in a 3-4 star hotels and we enjoyed every moment, tell we arrived Lourdes and check in at the Grand Hotel de la Grotte. It is an old hotel. It is so dirty and smells too bad. I think it is a one star hotel, not a 5 stars. It was... More

Dear me. The location is great, and there is a pool. The hotel is old and terribly run down. I'd say it is a 1 star hotel. However, the other hotels in town are also far from luxurious. Just recognize that you're there for the pilgrimage and grit your teeth til you can leave. Decent visit

My husband and I had dined at the hotel on previous visits to Lourdes, and had been very impressed with the food at the restaurant. This year we decided to book our stay at the hotel with our two small children and we were very happy with our choice. The hotel is family-run which gives it a wonderful atmosphere. The... More

We stayed two nights at, family owned, hotel. Six generations of the family have managed the site. How do we know this? The owner came out and greeted us as we listened to the musical entertainment that night in the outdoor seating for the bar/restaurant. He wanted to be sure all was in order for our stay. Our two days... More

Not everyone's cup of tea, this is an old hotel, not a new updated boutique hotel. If you like things a little old fashioned and quirky, this is your place. It is a little on the tired side but the manager is a hoot and we enjoyed our stay. The bed was comfortable and there was air conditioning, it didn't... More

Apart from the extraordinary view from our hotel balcony, this has got to be one of the worst hotels - if not the worst hotel - we've ever stayed at. After my husband sprayed the toilets with an air freshener, as the floor looked wet, I tried to wipe the floor dry with some tissue paper, and they turned black... More

More like a 2-star hotel. Room was old and small. Room view was up against a rock wall on back side of hotel. Bed very low to ground - average comfort. Towels not even changed out between room nights. Built in the mid-1800's - it shows. Good location vis-a-vis Lourdes.

I spent an evening at the Gd Hotel de la Grotte. I got in at about 7 am but they were able to accommodate us for very early check-in as well as late check out the next day. The hotel is right by the river and has a great view of the church at Lourdes. The room is clean, and... More
