“13 minutes walking from the cavern”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013 via mobile

13 minutes walking from the cavern (grotte) where holy Mary appeared (but we are fast walkers).
Clean. Kind staff.
Our room had a kitchen, but not much Material to cook and eat (e.g. no cup or glass).
Breakfast costs 8 euros and has not a lot of choice. The beverages we tried (cappuccino, chocolate, orange juice) were quite bad.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2013

Just got back from Lourdes, France today. We stayed in Lorda appart'Hotel for 3 nights and booked a studio type room. 2 single beds and 1 king size sofa bed. The room has en suite toilet and bath, dining table and little kitchen with microwave and 2 glass hob electric cooker. Really comfortable place to stay as it is clean and well maintained. The staff are polite and helpful from the reception to El Patio Restaurant. Walking distance from Lourdes Grotto. My friend just wished that the wi-fi will have more signal inside the room. Over-all, a satisfying and relaxing stay. Will be back hopefully soon...

I last reviewed Lorda a few days ago and gave it a very good rating. I now think it deserve more than a very good ... it is excellent !

Over the weekend the River Gave overflowed its banks and the Sanctuary in Lourdes was badly affected and many roads were closed. Many hotels were forced to closed and guests evacuated.

The manager at Lorda was very proactive n put us in another hotel for the night ... jus in case the situation gets worse n we have to evacuate in the middle of the night !! Luckily the next day we shifted back to Lorda !!

One night at the other hotel really makes us appreciate Lorda all the more - it is clean, super spacious, modern, smells good and the staff and service excellent !! Once my husband accidentally derailed the curtains n it was fixed within an hour or so.

Thanks Nicholas and staff !!

This is the second time we are staying at Lorda Apparthotel. The last time was 2 years ago when we stayed for 10 days. This time round we are staying for 24 days.

We have recommended friends coming to Lourdes to stay at Lorda and all of them are very happy with the accommodation.

Lorda is a bit away from the crowd yet is still easily accessible to the Lourdes sanctuary - jus a 10 mins walk away. The rooms are super spacious and clean and the staff friendly and helpful especially the manager Nicholas.

I would definitely stay here again !!

I've been to Lourdes a number of times over the years and despite the number of hotels there it lacks decent places to stay. Lorda Aparthotel is a good choice as it is away from the busy pedestrian areas of Lourdes and has been renovated in recent years, so rooms are modern and comfortable and very large compared to the normal shoeboxes of the big tourist hotels. You need to take your own bar of soap, and if you want to use the kitchen take your own knife, fork, etc - as nothing is supplied. Breakfast is pretty ordinary, even by French standards. Air con in rooms is very effective! Staff are friendly and professional. So overall a good choice for Lourdes, if your expectations are not overly high. I'd stay there again.

My husband and I visited Lordes to sight see and cycle in the Pyrenees. We cut our visit short as we found Lordes very busy, not very clean, lacking in good restaurants and very touristy.

However, the hotel was a good base. The room was clean, large, had a kitchenette (with no equipment?!) and well decorated. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The breakfast was a bit of a waste of money and the car park, although advertised was not available. This was a problem for us and one quickly fixed by the staff.

So although I would rate this hotel as good I would rate Lordes as very average.

This was our first stop on a short four day trip hiking in the pyrenees. We booked online after checking reviews and the location. Reception on arrival was quick and easy. Temperatures were hovering in the mid 30s (90sf) and the cool room with mountain views felt very welcoming. The place was well decorated and tastefully furnished and felt and smelt new. Floors were tiled or laminate wood and very clean. Great if you like low allergen environments. Bathroom fittings were very contemporary and the plumbing all worked great with decent shower water pressure. The room was larger than the average expected- ESP when compared to hotel roooms across the pond in the uk. Location was an easy 20 min walk from the railway station or around 30 euro from Lourdes airport by taxi. If you plan to catch the bus from the airport you will pay just 2 euros to the railway staition but don't rely on the timetable on the airport website as that is out of date. Overall an excellent experience. We didn't take the breakfast option so cannot comment. On that aspect of the service.
