If you are interested in caring and excellent service this is the place to be. They treat you like family. I spent 2 weeks at this hotel and found the experience to be the best I have received in my world travels. From the front desk to the restaurant and concierge. All excellent. I had an unexpected health issue and... More

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... More

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... More

Stayed here again after 3 years, not much changed, Nicolas and reception as good as before, waiting staff much better, Ate here lunch and evening meals, perfectly adequate. Room was clean and made up every day, bathroom entirely acceptable, so no complaints, very handy for the entrance to the Sanctuaries. If you go looking for a reasonable budget hotel it... More

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!... More

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... More

The Excelsior Hotel is an old hotel really just steps away from the entrance to the area of the cathedral and grotto. The front desk staff were all very pleasant and kind and spoke good English. Our double room was dated but it was clean and comfortable and very very spacious, especially by French standards. We also had a very... More
