“Nicely decorated but not prepared for cooking”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

The decoration is beatiful and the rooms are spacious. It's just a few minutes away from the Santuary. The staff is friendly.

I didn't like the fact that although it has a small kitchen it doesn't even has cups or cereal mugs to drink a cup of tee or eat some cereals. My mother is allergic to some types of food so I was expecting to be able to cook and have breakfast but how can we have that in an espresso cup!?!?

We arrived at this hotel late and night but the staff were so welcoming and helpful. The room was a lovely big room fully equipped with crockery etc for use with the kitchen appliances. Comfortable beds, nice furnishings, clean bathroom.
The hotel is a short 15 minute walk from the centre but as other reviews have said, there's plenty to see on the way to the grotto. It's also not far from a big supermarket so you can buy groceries if you plan on using the kitchen appliances in the room.
We didn't use the restaurant but the breakfast buffet looked good and like there was lots of choice. The hotel itself was quiet with no noisy groups staying there at the same time as us.
The reception staff really did help to answer all of our questions and made our stay at this hotel fantastic. They even arranged our taxi back to the airport. They gave a 5 star service so a big thank you to them.

Lourdes was not in our original itinerary. We stopped by for a night rest when we travelled from Gedre to Toulouse. We were really glad that we found this recently renovated apartment. Clean and bright. The only complain that I have is the kitchenette was not well equipped.
The location is good, we are able to walk everywhere. There are a lot of free parking spaces opposite of the hotel.

My family really enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean, comfortable and new. A great alternative to a hotel because it just had more of a "home away from home" atmosphere. The location was ideal, we were able to walk everywhere.
The only thing stopping me from giving 100% rating is that the kitchenette was not well equipped. We will be returning to Lourdes next year and I plan to call the hotel in advance and ask them if they can better equip the kitchens. Then it would be just perfect. Great value for money.

I stayed for four days in Lourdes at the Lorda. It seemed to have been very recently renovated and everything was nice and well maintained. As I was traveling alone, I stayed in the smallest apartment available but it was just the right size, quite bright and cosy. The decor was modern and elegant and I found the apartment and the hotel very pleasant and unpretentious on the whole. Although it was situated at the end of the hotel strip, it was still only a 15 minute walk to the Grotto and sanctuaries and situated in a prettier area than the hotels nearer to the train station. The train station was easily accessible by Citybus for 1.20 euro. Also, there was a good supermarket about twenty minutes away on foot so I was able to buy groceries and really use the kitchenette. My only minor criticisms are as follows: the small wall television could only be watched from the bed and was a bit far away in spite of my excellent eyesight and the hotel didn't provide a clean-up kit for the kitchen (sponge, cloth, dish detergent). On the whole, I enjoyed my stay at the Lorda and would not hesitate to recommend that you stay there.

Stayed here in August. A clean large room with a kitchen area, the bed was very comfortable. Just 1 kilometer walk to the Grotto. Excellent value for money. Would stay again.

Nice hotel - clean rooms, large spaces with single beds and minimal decor. Coffee bar makes delicious croissants in the morning. No dishes or cutlery to go with kitchenette, and ensure you bring soap for the shower. Staff are nice and helpful and speak a multitude of languages. Free parking was easy to find and the internet worked in the rooms. Was a pleasant oasis.
