Grand Hotel Vignemale
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Gavarnie
Reviewed July 17, 2012

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 be a bit dated, this was more than compensated for by the friendly service and the unique location. Lydia, a member of the family that runs the hotel, speaks fluent English and having grown up in the area was happy to tell us about life in this part of the Pyrenees, help us plan our walks, and suggest where to have diner each evening. We had a relay peaceful and relaxing stay and would like to,return one day.

Stayed: July 2012, traveled as a couple

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 particular we enjoyed chatting with the Lydia (daughter) whose English is very good and we learned much more about things to do and the area than we could otherwise have learned. If we had any questions she was eager to help as she had a strong service orientation. In summary, we loved the area and the hotel. As well, as you can see from the web pics, its a nice looking hotel.

Visitors to Gavarnie need to know that buses pull in during the day and fill the town. As we were away hiking during the day this had no impact on us. In late afternoon it is quiet again and in fact in mid June, most retail (including eating places) were closed.

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 were very small. All of this might have been (just) acceptable if it were not for the elevated price - we have stayed in more expensive hotels but seldom in one which charged so much and offered so little.

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.
