Best Western Hotel BeauSejour Lourdes
Ranked #14 of 185 Hotels in Lourdes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 January 2013

A short, 3 day trip to Lourdes in January. I booked the hotel at the Best Western website and despite practically the entire city closed down for the month ( off - season ), I am pleased I picked this hotel for its location.

Came out of the airport. Bus stop directly outside the terminal. Bus every hour to Lourdes train station at a cost of 2 Euros and a little under 20 minutes you're there.
The hotel is almost opposite the station.

The hotel itself is an older hotel of some history but renovated well.
Public areas are very nice and during the summer, the outside terrace has magnificent views to take in over lunch, dinner or a drink.

Check in was swift. Wi fi is complimentary. Other reviews are spot on - The room was small, as was the bathroom. None the less, very clean, refurbished and functioning. The shower appeared either very new or extremely well maintained.
We were located at the front of the hotel, so a balcony overlooking the street. This was quiet enough, with the doors closed, you cannot hear anything.
House keeping was superb.

The rate did not include breakfast, but we only ate breakfast once. We were charged 5 Euros each and included unlimited good coffee, juice, rolls, ham, cheese, croissants etc - all in all, very good value.

The hotel is perhaps 1km walk to Centre Ville, quaint. A further km to the sanctuary at a guess.
The walk from centre ville to the sanctuary took us through streets lined with closed hotels, restaurants and shops. In other words, the sheer commercialness of it all was erased by the fact these were all closed.

For us, the weather was not particularly great and more available choices of somewhere to eat would have been a bonus. But it gave you a clear indication of what the area is like during the busier seasons and if I were to visit again, I would pick this hotel for the simple fact that it is away from row after row of hotels and religious gift shops. The 10 or so shops that were open, all selling the same thing.

Another huge plus point in visiting at this time of year, there were hardly any people at the sanctuary. Photos were taken without any interruption, the Grotto had no more than 5 or 6 other people at any given time - all in all, a good time to visit if you are looking for solitude.

We ate at the hotel one evening, to a set 3 course meal. It was above average. Nothing spectacular, but not disagreeable in the least.

Finally, visiting out of season, other attractions are closed.
I would happily recommend the hotel to others and I would stay here again.

Good hotels are hard to find in Lourdes. Service here is good, rooms small but very clean and comfortable. The hotel is quiet and convenient to the basilica. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a convenient location with good service.

We went many times to this hotel in the past. The service is impeccable, the room was clean and very well furnished with with a large TV set and a nice shower/tub. The room facing the mountains on the back of the hotel was very quiet. This hotel is convenientlt located closed to the railways station, Avis rent a car and from the Lourdes Grotto.

Room Tip: Select a room on the back and high floor.

Enjoyed the hotel stay, the staff and the location. Room was small but comfortable. Recommend a room with a view as it is just beautiful...worth the extra charge. Room was clean and always maintained. Appreciated the extra pillows.

We stayed in a family room on the top floor - room was OK - large enough, but nothing to shout about. Still, it was only really somewhere to sleep, and for that, it was fine. There were spare pillows and blankets as well, which I like as one pillow is never enough!
The bathroom was clean and modern, with a good shower. There were two basins, which was fine, but it left no room to put out your toiletries!
The bar was in the restaurant, and although it was ok, it wasn't the sort of place you could relax with a drink for long. The food itself was tasty, and reasonably priced. Breakfast was plentiful, though I thought it was quite pricy, at about 10 euros.
Parking was not a problem, and was free.
It was about a 10 minute walk into the centre of Lourdes, so was ideally situated for sightseeing.

Stayed here for one night as part of biking tour around france. The hotel is very well presented, the staff are professional and very helpful. The rooms were pleasant and the location was very central to everything. Parking area lacked a garage but was ok. We'd readily stay here again.

Nice enough hotel, easy walking distance to town and just across the road from the train station. There are lovely views from the back of the hotel across the town and across to the Pyrénées.

Rooms are pretty small and if you get one on the top floor you can pretty much forget standing up in the shower. Doesn't have a decent bar either and some of the décor is a bit tired. Basically don't expect (or pay) too much and you'll be happy enough.
