GRAND HOTEL MODERNE
This hotel is in an amazing location and the closest to the Lourdes Grotto (less than 100 yards away). It is a wonderful hotel with old worlde charm and elegance. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. We were treated with smiles and a warm personal service at all times.
We stayed on a half board basis and the food was fantastic. There is a set menu for Half Boarders and the dinner was fixed and didn’t offer a choice but for us it was all excellent. Home cooked, delicious and included Risotto starter, Duck, Veal and the most tender beef bourguignon I have ever tasted. Lovely desserts included a beautiful chocolate ice cream sundae and chilled crème caramel! I have heard that food in Lourdes can be a bit of a mixed bag so unless sourcing a good restaurant to dine in I would highly recommend eating at the hotel. Breakfast also was very good and eggs and bacon can be ordered with the waiter if desired and is part of the cost.
The rooms are clean, spacious and lovely. Be aware they are however very hot at night and if facing the street, opening windows at night means it gets noisy early morning.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and its lovely staff and would stay again if I return to Lourdes. Particularly lovely was the beautiful singing from the processions taking place at the Grotto.
TIPS: Parking, you can park in the nearby municipal parking – 24 hrs is 19 euros. Or if not needing your car, park over the bridge on the right hand side (road to Pau). Or you can park up the street from the hotel opposite the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception from 8-1300 for 5 euros (you then get one free hour) then return at 1400 to pay for parking until 1900 for another 5 euros.
Wifi connection in the rooms is minimal, people were sitting in the halls to connect. However a tip that no-one seemed to know about (as it was always free!) is to take the lift to the basement and there is a computer and printer that is always connected and you can use free of charge!
TEA/COFFEE making facilities in the room – there are none. Take you own kettle if required. As well as a TV in your room there is also darkened Cinema Style room with giant TV screen down in the basement for those who would want that.
