“Great value for money”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

This newly renovated hotel offers excellent value for money with an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff at reception, restaurant, bar, shop and throughout the hotel. Our rooom overlooking the river was very clean and comfortable, with the added advantage of having Sky, BBC and ITV television channels. The restaurant offers both a very good set menu as well as a wide a la carte range (my wife particularly liked the king prawns and the sorbet dessert). The service is excellent. The hotel is located in a quiet area just a short distance from the Grotto affording a pleasant walk along the river bank. We very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel to both groups and independent vistors (such as ourselves).

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the river have a particulaly nice view.

This is a very basic hotel, the reception and staff are pleasant however the room was very dated and not very child friendly. The separate toilet and bathroom make it very tight for space ,the furniture was very dated and rather awful, the fittings were dated and shabby, the beds were soft and uncomfortable. There was no information about the hotel in the room at all, the meal times were tight to say the least, an hour and half for dinner and breakfast. The food on the half board menu was not great and had we stayed for more than one night I would have eaten elsewhere. The plus points were that it was pretty clean and we managed to get a good deal on the room. In would have been very disappointed if we had paid the hotels full rate. The room was supposed to be wheelchair accessible however we could not get my daughters chair past the bathroom and into the room!

We spent four nights in the Alba hotel in Lourdes in May 2011 and were in room 412, which looked onto the river, a beautiful view. The room had a separate bathroom and toilet and two single beds, which were comfortable. There was soap and shampoo in the bathroom.
There was a large flat screen television, as it was very thin it could have been LED, and there were quite a few English channels and a very good picture.
The food was quite good, if plain, and we were on full board. Breakfast consisted of cereals, Ham, Cheese, Rolls, Tea and as I am a coffee drinker a reasonable coffee on offer. Lunch and dinner consisted of four courses, two starters, a main course and dessert. Drinks were extra as was coffee or tea. The food was of a good quality and you won't go hungry.
The nature of the town dictated it was quiet at night so no noise problems.
The staff were quite helpful and seemed happy in their work.
If you are going to Lourdes I would recommend this hotel as one to consider.

Room Tip: Clean, Good Food, Quiet

This year will be our 11th visit to Lourdes and we always stay at the alba . It is a pleasant 10 min walk to the domain (pushing my daughters wheelchair) and is on more or less level ground.The rooms are immaculate,the staff very friendly and helpful,and the food good and plentiful. I would definately recommend this hotel.

The staff was lovely , service was brilliant. The Rooms were spotless maids came in and cleaned them everyday. Lovely bar and restraunt , The food was lovely , they catour for both vegitarien and non vegitarien.
Everyroom has a nice view , If your room is at the front of the hotel you will have the view of the river wich run's through all of the town, if your are at the back of the hotel your view will be of the mountains.
Some rooms are acomerdated ith balconeys, Soom rooms have an upstairs , bathroom's are very clean and newly ferbished.
Its a 10 minute walk to the main part of lourdes were the church is, shops are very cheap but good quality.
Overall I would recomend this hotel.

We stayed in Lourdes as part of a trip in Northern Spain and took the opportunity to cross the Pyrenees and visit Lourdes.
As we had some trouble finding a hotel at the time we wanted, and with parking, we stayed at the Hotel Alba.
This is a basic hotel with rooms that are quite small, but comfortable and reasonably priced.
However, we do not regret making the detour as the visit to Lourdes is a must-do experience.

We were extremely happy with this hotel, very clean, comfortable, great location, only a ten minute walk to the grotto. Free wi fi. The staff in the hotel was very friendly and helpful. There is a beautiful piety shop in the main enterance, and we were very impressed with the staff, who went out of their way to help us and organise a parcel to be sent back to Perth Western Australia. The food was great, I would highly recommend this hotel to friends and family.
