Wow. That's what I said out loud when we rode up to the hotel because of it's impressive facade. Then I turned around to see the view of the Cirque de Gavarnie, WOW! This lovely hotel has the double wow factor and excellent service too - Lydia was exceptionally welcoming and pleasant, she speaks fantastic english and she made us... More

We recently spent an overnight stay in this hotel (22.07.12). The views from the room are absolutely stunning. The rooms were clean and tidy and unlike many hotel stays at other resorts the bed was extremely comfortable. The owner was a fantastic host. Worth a visit.

We loved our 3 night stay at Hotel Vignemale, a friendly hotel located at the end of the village with easy parking. From our bedroom window we had an ever changing but uninterrupted view of the Cirque de Gavarnie and its wonderful waterfall, the highest in Europe, which fed the stream that burbled past the hotel. While the rooms might... More

My wife and I visitied Gavarnie in mid June and stayed two nights at the hotel. The view of the cirque was fabulous from our room. It was very quiet at the hotel (and the town) at this time of year, which suited us fine. The owners (and daughter) were the primary staff and were very accessable and helpful. In... More

Great service from the owner's daughter, who speaks fluent English. Wonderful, unparalled location and views in a great old building. Rooms are small and spartan.

Spent 2 nights at the Vignemale. The staff is most friendly and welcoming. The building is superb, the rooms a bit dated but the beds are comfortable, the hotel quiet, a little apart from the small village. The views of the cirque of Gavarnie are breathtaking, immediate access to great hikes.

Magnificent building with beautiful views and setting. Very welcoming staff, always willing to assist. Good parking facilities for one day. We could leave our car while on 3 day hiking trips. Very calm location away from a busy touristic town.

The only thing "Grand" about the Hotel Vignemale is the view. We stayed there at the end of September when they were just about to close for the season, and we were the only guests, but even so the facilities were very disappointing. The reception did not open until 5pm. The restaurant was closed. Our room and en suite facilities... More

The owners were so warm a friendly. I felt at home immediately. The breakfast was wonderful. The vista from the hotel is incredible--facing the Gavarnie Glacier--a view beyond description it's so beautiful. My room was attractive, spotlessly clean, and well-appointed. I had a great stay, and plan to go back again, this time for a longer stay.
